Grimme to distribute ‘Grimme by Stanhay’ Precision Drills

Stanhay is pleased to announce that it has agreed a new distribution deal with the Grimme Group which was launched at the recent Grimme Technica show this month. Based in Damme, Germany the family owned Grimme Group is a leading manufacturer of vegetable, potato and sugar beet machinery. From 2019 onwards newly branded ‘Grimme by Stanhay’ machines will be distributed through the Grimme network in Germany, the Netherlands, Great Britain, Ireland, Poland, Russia and China.

The move allows Grimme to offer a precision drill to complete its range of vegetable technology that already includes cultivation, harvesting and storage equipment.  With Stanhay’s extensive experience in precision drill technology and Grimme’s renowned after sales performance the partnership provides the vegetable grower with a perfect machinery partner.

As well as all new machinery enquiries, current Stanhay customers in the aforementioned markets will also be able to access service and spare parts through their local Grimme representatives from 2019 onwards. Contact details for these Grimme representatives will soon be available on the dealer page of the site.

Nine Developments

The engineering team at Stanhay have been hard at work on the latest generation of the Nine electric drive cell wheel drill. The latest version uses a totally new electronics system from Topcon and is now fully ISOBUS compliant and capable of section control. The first machine with this new system is being put through its paces drilling Sugar Beet with several different Cambridgeshire growers in a strip till setup and production models will be available later in the year.

Our distributors on the west coast of the US displayed the latest Stanhay products at the World Ag Expo in February. Top attractions were the new ProAir and the Seven which has been adapted to gently handle coated lettuce seed and trialled successfully with growers in Arizona. The Seven offers growers a simple to use and low maintenance planting solution for coated lettuce. With the latest version of the electric drive system in development, this will give further functionality to growers to alter spacing from the tractor cab from row to row and shut off individual rows. Thanks to all who visited the booth.
