Forty minutes north of Gore lies Gunton Farms or better known as Argyle Station.  With 14,000ha in total, of which 2500ha is cultivatable and more than 48,000 stock units including deer, sheep and beef, they need machinery they can rely on to do the job.

To help service the needs of their large business, Gunton Farms recently purchased two new John Deere tractors, a 6150R and a 7230R. Purchased at the most recent Waimumu Field days, they took advantage of John Deere’s great finance options.  The 6150R is a superb Utility tractor, known for being solid and reliable. This tractor has John Deere’s intelligent power management system which boosts the horsepower to 170. The 7230R is designed for putting more power to the ground, with John Deere’s New PowerTech PSX6.8l engine and IVT Transmission.

Gunton Farms first changed to John Deere with 7930 IVT as their main Ag tractor five years ago.  Having great service, with good back up from Southland Farm Machinery makes Jamie Deans job a lot easier as machinery manager for the station.

Jamie works alongside 5 other full time employees, with additional staff helping over the peak months. Over the last few years the team has been working hard at developing the land, aiming to become less reliant on contractors in the near future.

Southland Farm Machinery thoroughly enjoys working with Gunton Farms and wishes them all the best for the oncoming season.
