Other Information

Hello there,   Just to let you know a little more about my experience.    I have worked in England on a grain farm for the last 7 years. During that time i cultivated the land prior to seeding. Come harvest time i drove a combine. Unfortunately i do not have much experience using chemicals for spraying but willing to learn. I have been around farm machinery most of my life and i am use to maintaining the machines to keep them working and in good condition. I have a current heavy goods vehicle licence in the UK and Europe which i have held for the last 20 years.  In my last job i drove John Deere 6930, 7530, 8400, 7930, 8520 and a tracked John Deere 8320 RT. I also drove a John Deere 9780i CTS Combine with 30ft Zurn header. I also drove a Caterpillar TH 63 loader which we use for loading the grain trucks. I have experience with the John Deere GPS system which i used on most of the above machines.  I have also worked for Dengie horse feeds in Essex for the past 6 seasons driving a John Deere forager chopping 14000 to 15000 acres of Lucerne per season for the production of horse feed in their factory. You will not be disappointed with my work ethic or the way I handle your machinery .    Hope to hear from you soon,   Jim ...
