  3. The Lister Wilder Low Down on HDK
    9th September 2014

    There seems to be a lot of talk about HDK golf buggies and utility vehicles at the moment so we caught up with Phill Hughes – Sales Director at Lister Wilder Ltd to get the low down.


    So Phill, could you tell us a bit about HDK? 

    P – Yes sure. HDK have been specialising in electric vehicles since 2006 and have made and sold over 50,000 vehicles in that time. They have manufacturing facilities in both the USA and China which keeps the cost low while maintaining a high level of quality control.

    Are the vehicles new to the UK market?

    P – There hasn’t been anyone based in England, Scotland or Wales supplying vehicles before now, but there have been cars working at various locations supplied by European dealers, along with the dealer in Northern Ireland – Wolfhound.

    So how have they been received?

    P – Very well. The maintenance free batteries are very popular and people are taking comfort in the fact that the main components (motors and controllers) are used in the same cars as a number of the market leading competitors. Of course, the most popular thing that our customers like is the price!

    Could you tell us about the back-up that you offer?

    P – Our Parts department have worked with HDK to ensure we have everything in stock that might be required. Added to that we currently have over 55 Field Service Engineers with fully equipped vans which means we’re able to offer a back-up service that is second to none.

    For those that don’t know who Lister Wilder are can you fill us in please?

    P – Of course, Lister Wilder are a family owned business that have been supplying machinery since 1947 We operate from 8 depots across the South of England and employ over 190 staff. We represent the Groundcare industry’s leading franchises which include Kubota, Baroness, Dennis, Sisis, Trimax, Charterhouse and Timberwolf. We believe our success has come from the franchises that we offer, our ability to be competitive and the after sales service we offer, which is second to none. Our company logo “Sales with Service” identifies the ethos we encourage throughout the company.

    As you’re mainly based in the South are you planning on servicing the rest of the country, Scotland and Wales?

    P – At this stage we’re going to keep our focus fairly close to our depots in the South of England – but we would welcome any enquiries from dealers in the North, Scotland or Wales that would like to discuss the opportunities HDK could bring.

    Thanks for the up-date Phill, is there anything else that you would like to add?

    P – Only that we would welcome the opportunity to demonstrate both the HDK range and the savings that they could bring to anyone that has a requirement.

    Timberwolf launches the All-New TW 230DHB
    1st September 2014

    New Timberwolf gets more chipping and crushing power beneath a comfortably familiar and legendary silhouette yet remains under the crucial 750kg weight limit.

    The TW 230DHB may look similar to the TW 150DHB but it’s a new model inside and out. The innovative TW 230DHB is new from the ground up and shares less than 10 major components from the TW 150DHB.

    The larger and more powerful chipping rotor is only one of several features that distinguish the 2014 TW 230DHB which also comes with, open top funnel, wide rollers with extra-large throat and exceptional crushing power with quad-force rollers.

    While retaining the basic silhouette of the renowned TW 150DHB, the new TW 230DHB chipper is a clear step-up in terms of throughput, strength and serviceability. With a wider axle and a deeper chassis beam the new TW 230DHB chipper has a more powerful and purposeful stance. These characteristics are more than cosmetic changes; this chipper is the most powerful sub 750kg yet and no stone has been left unturned in the pursuit of strength and durability to match performance whilst still being under that magic 750kg figure.

    With both performance and safety in mind, Timberwolf engineers have designed extra strength into every critical component throughout the machine to ensure it can give top level performance day after day, year after year.

    See Timberwolf's new TW 230DHB chipper at the Lister Wilder stand (D20) at Saltex this week!

    Valtra - A New Edition to the Family
    12th March 2014

    As you may now be aware, AGCO has undertaken a review of its dealer network and have made some difficult decisions as to which dealerships will be in a position to support the Valtra range of products, not just for today, but also for the next generation of users. They have sought, where possible, to put all the franchises under one roof. As dealers representing their products since 1947, we know these reviews do not happen very often, but unfortunately George Browns, LJ & CA Cannings and Lower Quinton Garages have been asked to relinquish the Valtra franchise and are currently working through a notice period that comes to an end in July of this year. We recognise that these companies will have given excellent service to many of you and you have our assurance we will continue to build on the work that has gone before us.

    We have been asked to take on the Valtra product at three branches - Cirencester in Gloucestershire, Southam in Warwickshire and, our Head Office, at Wallingford in Oxfordshire. As existing AGCO dealers, many of the Valtra systems are already in place and we became fully operational on 1st February 2014. Dan Sharood, who has many years of experience with the franchise, has joined our team as our Valtra Sales Specialist on Monday 27th January and, with some recent additions, our team of 60 engineers now have the necessary experience to support this important product.

    Top Award for Lister Wilder
    12th March 2014

    We are delighted to announce that Lister Wilder have been awarded the prestigious Agco 5 star dealer standard award for 2014.  As one of only three dealerships in the country, Managing Director, Ian Nutt, was understandably proud of the company's achievement "We know customers grade our dealership day in day out, but its great to get the recognition from Agco who have looked into every aspect of our Sales, Service and Parts operations and graded them as some of the best in the country" he commented.

  8. We need your help.......Lackham College Fodder Collection Centre
    13th February 2014

    Fodder Collection and distribution Centre.
     
    Our neighbours on the Somerset levels are having to deal with catastrophic hardship and it seems wrong of us to sit and do nothing to help.
    To this end we are setting up a collection and distribution hub at Lackham to get dry bedding and silage to those in severe need on the levels. I know feed is in short supply but, if  many of us can donate two or three bales, we can hopefully make a difference.
    If you are able to help out with either feed or bedding, we can collect, store and deliver it via  the networks being set up. Please contact on 077477772791.
    Many thanks for your anticipated support

    Special Offers from Lister Wilder . . . helping dreams become a reality

    Last year we employed Mike Foyle a former Fendt Area Sales Manager to give customers the professional sales experience that comes with buying a Fendt.
    Why Fendt?
    The costs of running a Fendt are low, anything else may seem much cheaper on the price tag but will cost you more over the lifetime of the machine. For example:
        •    Fendt 700 Series (240hp) will save you 2 litres an hour compared to the class average this is nearly double compared to our main competitor. (5000hrs @ 70p/litre is £7,000 saving against class average)
    Service & Warranty
    Service contracts with us can be run as a pay as you go or you can pay upfront and fix your servicing costs for the full term, any services not used are credited. Prices for Servicing & Warranty (5 year 5,000 hour) vary from £3.45 to £3.53 an hour for the machines shown and can be lengthened or shortened in the first 12 months giving you the flexibility to change your mind if you wish.
    You may well feel Fendt is too technical or too expensive, well we can assure you that this is not true in both cases, our demo team are on hand to take you through the machine and show you how easy it is to operate, once you have driven it you will be impressed. The efficiency of the Fendt is top of its class, this means the total cost of owning a Fendt will be lower than any other tractor in its class, as we say it’s not the price on the ticket but the cost of ownership.
    For more information contact Mike Foyle today on 07802 881 074.

    Lister Wilder appointed as Horsch distributor
    27th July 2011

    We are delighted to announce that Lister Wilder have been appointed as main agents in Gloucestershire and Wiltshire with German based manufacturer Horsch.
     
    Horsch, who recently celebrated their 25th anniversary, manufacture a wide range of soil cultivators and seed drills, including the Sprinter Drill, Pronto Drill, Tiger Cultivator and Joker Cultivator.
     
    The company was founded in 1984 with the development of the Terra-Trac. With this three-wheel tractor, first designed as a self-propelled seeding machine, Horsch began to build their brand name. Then the German reunification took place and the situation changed – opening up the market with many large farms looking for new technology. Product development continued particularly for large farms of 1.000 hectares plus and in 1998, the Horsch FIT Center was built to directly pass on experience and know-how.
    From the year 2000, Horsch grew rapidly and an assembly hall was built in Gut Sitzenhof (2002), a further office building (2005) as well as a factory in Ronneburg (2007). With a growth in sales of 46 percent in 2007 and 74 percent in 2008 Horsch has become one of the most important manufacturers of seed drills and soil cultivators in Europe. With more than 500 employees in Germany, internationally more than 1000 employees in partner companies, Horsch has achieved a turnover of more than 200 Million Euro in 2008.
     
    We look forward to a successful working partnership with Horsch now and in the future and the distribution of their seed drills and soil cultivators across the South of England. To find out more about the range of Horsch products please call Oliver Down on 01285 652272 or visit the website at www.horsch.com

    Top Marks for Topcon
    27th August 2010

    Precision agriculture, combining high-accuracy GNSS technology, sophisticated software, machine guidance and metering systems, crop analysis systems, weather monitoring and telematics, is changing the face of agriculture around the world. It allows farmers at all levels, ranging from small family-run operations to large agri-businesses, to achieve significant improvements in farming efficiency. Benefits include increased yields, savings in time, higher productivity, reduced pollution, and more precise applications of both nutrients and seed.

    Today, precision agriculture is about three key elements:

    1. Saving time
    2. Reducing cost
    3. Environmental stewardship

    These three elements are the building blocks for the rise in the precision agriculture market.

    Saving Time

    The latest precision agriculture technology delivers significant timesaving opportunities, whether it’s a family-owned farm or a large corporate agriculture business.

    Typically on family farms, everyone is stretched for time – so saving time on larger-scale jobs frees farmers, their families and staff up for other “must-do” jobs, as well as more free time to give them a better quality of life.

    On large agribusiness enterprises, timesavings translate into higher productivity and increased yields. And because of the scale of these operations, the return on investment can be very rapid indeed.

    Reducing Cost

    The latest precision agriculture technology offers significant opportunities for cost savings across a whole range of farming activities, including:

    1. Reduced requirements for seed, nutrients, pesticides and other chemicalsTasks are done right, first time, every time, any time
    2. Higher productivity 
    3. Reduced fuel usage.

    Environmental Stewardship

    Precision agriculture technology is playing a significant role in reducing the environmental impacts of farming by reducing pollution and runoff, through lower chemical use, minimal overspray, better targeting – because sprays, nutrients, etc., are only used where they are needed.

    To see what Precision Farming can do for your business, book an appointment with Mark Horlick today.  Mobile 07810 886 573
