Managing Director Jason Bateman

Making every second count

We ’ve been experiencing extreme weather over the past few months, in particular the amount of rainfall that’s hit most parts of the UK. Spraying, just like any other farming task, has always been about making the most of windows of opportunity. Now, more than ever it’s important to have machinery and back up you can rely on.

A noticeable recent trend has been the move towards larger machines. This logic ties in with getting chemical down whilst the weather allows, but there’s more to it than just larger tanks and booms. Larger tyres offer better flotation particularly when driving on ground that is soft.

Reducing compaction is high on many farmers’ agendas, we’re now fitting larger tyres as standard on new RB55 orders. This machine offers best in class weight and compaction for 5,600 litres, we’ve given you the low down in our RB55 product feature.

During the shows we attended in 2023, it was great to meet up with our customers. One topic that never fails to be mentioned is the lengths we go to in order to support our drivers, especially during peak spraying times. We value your feedback and never take anything for granted, which is why we’re working hard behind the scenes to make things even better. You can read some customer comments about our back up here.

Are you a High Hour Hero? You often tell us just how much you like spending time in your Bateman. We’d like to hear from you – tell us your story here.

I look forward to meeting many of you during 2024 and wish you the best for the season.
