Iseki Tractors "Behind-the-scenes" at Olympia Horse Show
Ransomes Jacobsen recently loaned several Iseki tractors to the Olympia Horse show for the second year running. The show was held at The Grand Hall in Hammersmith, London.
The tractors on loan included the new TLE3400 with loader attachment, a TH4335, a TG6370 IQ and both the TG6490 HST and TG6490 IQ variants.
Tim Henson is the Backstage Manager at the London International Horse Show. He is responsible for the organisation and management of all activities and logistics before the show is unveiled to the public. Commenting on the build-up to the show, Tim said: "We are extremely grateful to Ransomes Jacobsen for loaning us the Iseki tractors. I have worked at the London International Horse Show for 22 years now and I wish we had these tractors back then!"
The tractors are used to move all of the equipment, such as the show jumps, in and out of the arena areas. The TLE3400 is Iseki's new premium economy tractor. It features a three-speed hydrostatic transmission and an impressive lift capacity of 1000kg, making it suitable for a range of tasks, including lifting and towing.
Commenting on the performance of the tractors, Tim said: "The machines are very reliable; they have exceeded our expectations and deliver around the clock, which is exactly what we want when we have so much to do in so little time. We have 5 tractor drivers and the feedback from all of them has been astoundingly positive. The tractors are extremely user-friendly; the operators haven't had any issues working out how to use a tractor when jumping from one machine to the other. They are also particularly adept at navigating small spaces in and around the show areas, which of course makes life much easier for us; without doubt, we have saved ourselves a lot of time with these machines"
John Quinton, UK and Ireland Sales Manager at Ransomes Jacobsen said:
"We are delighted that a range of Iseki tractors have been used throughout the Olympia Horse Show. The TG6 and TLE series of tractors are already proving very popular in the municipal, grounds maintenance and agricultural markets and we are very excited to showcase these machines at Olympia each year."
