Borders dealer appointed by sprayer manufacturer



Kellands has teamed up with Rickerby Ltd in its first move towards creating a comprehensive UK sales network.

Creators of the Agribuggy low-ground pressure sprayer, and the Multidrive range of all-terrain multi-purpose load carriers, Kellands sees the move as crucial in boosting brand awareness and putting its innovative products in the ‘shop window’ with potential customers.

The deal will see Kellands machines available through Rickerby’s seven-strong chain of sales outlets in the North of England and Scotland.

A highly successful agricultural dealer with branches in Carlisle, Alnwick, Bowburn, Carnforth, Cornhill, Dunbar, Hexham and Penrith, Rickerby has established a reputation for excellent customer service and after-sales support.

Kellands director of sales and marketing Keith Pashley said: “We are delighted to build a partnership with Rickerby. They possess huge agricultural experience, have built strong relationships with farmers and contractors, and have a successful track record for supporting customers from sales enquiries through to after-care.

“We feel confident this deal will offer extensive opportunities for both Kellands and Rickerby and give us a strong platform to be more proactive in getting the product out into the marketplace for potential customers to see.”

Kellands’ world-famous Agribuggy is a high-performance self-propelled crop sprayer that delivers a greater power-to-weight ratio and fuel economy than any of its rivals. Its unique low ground pressure design enables operators to go where other sprayers can’t – working in wet conditions and tough terrain and allowing safe, productive working earlier and later in the year than rivals.

Tough and versatile, the Multidrive series of machines offers a tank capacity of 9,000 litres or a maximum payload weight of 14,000kg and thrive as spreaders, sprayers, and all-purpose load carriers in even the most challenging terrain.
