(East Anglia Harvesting Specialists) 2015-2017

-Apprentice agricultural engineer, at the time I was working alongside a mentor learning how to carry out services to a high standard and repairs.

-I worked on a range of machines and implements ranging from small rakes all the way up to Lexions and Zerions, the work involved winter services and overhauls for the combines in the workshop and out on site as well as any repairs required out in the field at harvest time. Tractors were an all year rounder and required servicing as and when there service schedule was due, this involved changing oils and filters and generally inspecting the machine for wear and damaging, if anything needed doing the customer was notified and the work was carried out.

-During my time I was expected to be able to think on my feet and carry out all work to a high standard, this sometimes involved designing and fabricating special tools and parts to complete a job as so I was taught to weld and fabricate to an acceptable high standard.

-As time went on I was trusted to take on a more independent role and started preforming tasks on my own, I was given a shared van and started to repair and service machines on my own, this involved a lot of responsibility and concentration to complete jobs to high standard and in good time, working alone allowed me to gain valued skills and the ability to not just think for myself but also adjust rapidly, effectively, and intelligently to new developments or changing circumstances within the job I was doing as new faults could become apparent the further down the line you got with a repair.

-Having the ability to assess and initiate things independently or using ones intuitive was a major part of this job as working solo you never know when and what you may come up against.

2017-2018

-Organic farm growing a range of combinable crops such as, Wheat, Barley, Oat, Beans and Quinoa, the farm was of fair acreage spanning over 950ha, I was involved in all aspects of the Arable farm. this included but was not limited to; running a butterfly mower to mulch up clover plants for the ground nutrients, ploughing the ground ready for the next crop rotations using a Dowdeswell 110 6 furrow plough, getting involved in secondary cultivations using a Dalbo cultimax multi-tine cultivator, setting up and operating the complex system Cameleon drill which could perform multiple operations such as; sowing, liquid/granulate fertilizing and row hoeing all with the aid of Trimble, setting up and operating the Claas Lexion 750 as a stand in or relief driver for the main machine operator, loading lorries using the teleporter and other tasks that were required of me to keep the farm running smoothly and cost effectively.

-Shimpling farm also utilises CTF (Controlled Traffic Farming) in order to reduce the effects of ground compaction which can have a negative effect on crop production within organic farming.

-Large scale arable Estate and livestock farm consisting of 10,000 acres of farm land, with the entire estate being roughly 22,000 acres. I was part of a team of 41 tractor drivers, undertaking multiple aspects of the arable farm.

-During my time at Elveden, I was involved in different aspects of root crop farming, such as; de-stoning with a Reekie Reliance 500, harvesting with a T2 Standen Pearson potato harvester, Fertiliser spraying with a Sands Horison 24m sprayer, spreading fertiliser with a tractor mounted Kuhn fertiliser spreader, Topping potatoes using a Grimme Haulm topper, Irrigation using conventional pull out gun irrigators as well as large scale linear irrigators, Rolling crop with a Cousins 9m roller.

-Not only was I responsible for operating the machinery but also for the daily maintenance and basic repair whilst in use. For example, greasing up machinery not only before use but throughout operation as required, checking the rollers, sprockets, webs and bearings on the de-stoners for damage and wear, replacing/ repairing parts as needed.

(Summer/ out of school hours)

-Tractor and trailer work, taking corn from the field to the grain store

-Cutting grass using the tractor and topper.

-Working in the workshop, blowing down, cleaning and greasing up tractors and trailers ready for the days use.

-Working in two of the Wicken’s driers, I was left on my own for multiple hours taking control of the whole process which requires a great amount of responsibility and concentration.

-Helping perform maintenance on the combine during the harvest period.

-Helping perform irrigation.

Hobbies

Currently I am working as an Agricultural Engineer. I have my own tool box filled with a comprehensive range of tools. I have a telehandler certificate, provided by City and Guilds. I quickly pick up how to use complex farm machinery when given instruction. Living on a private Farm has given me the opportunity to be able to drive a large range of vehicles from a young age. The Countryside has been my life since birth and I could not imagine myself anywhere else. I am very confident in work involving farming machinery and maintenance, but I am also willing to undergo any training necessary to allow me to work to the best of my ability for you.
