vehicles have been supplied by Barrus dealer Hamilton Bros, Bishopton, Renfrewshire, to the Wemyss Bay Caravan Park who had a requirement for a covered run around vehicle with towing capabilities and a tipping cargo box. A 4 wheel drive diesel utility


vehicle was initially evaluated but dismissed in favour of the Cub Cadet 4x2 petrol utility vehicle. Powered by a 624cc, V-Twin Kohler engine the Cub Cadet proved to be exceptionally smooth and quiet in operation, an important consideration for the Park ensuring noise levels are kept to a minimum when in close proximity to the caravans.

around an existing canal basin, required the highest quality landscape scheme to achieve the local authority planner’s long term vision for the area. Trees were planted using

Rupert Price, UK & Ireland sales manager at Ransomes Jacobsen said, “We have been contemplating this approach to product demonstrations for some time, and felt that now was an opportune time to implement this strategy. Bringing demonstrations in house will give us greater control


over how our equipment is presented to end-users. “Our dealers have been doing a decent job, but there has been a level of variability in how demonstrations have been conducted. Now, using our own fully trained staff with support from head office, we can ensure that all demonstrations are of the highest quality and give us


an improved chance of winning business. “We are determined to


achieve a significant increase in market share over the next four years in all sectors of the market. Therefore, we have committed considerable resource to this new strategy and, in the long- term, we are convinced that the payback will be winning more


business.” The new demonstration team is comprised of: John Clifford, a former demonstrator with sprayer manufacturer Gambetti Barr; Robert Hayward, who previously worked for Ransomes Jacobsen’s dealer, Ernest Doe and Sons; Harvey Doughty, a familiar face to many in the industry as he has been Ransomes Jacobsen’s dedicated delivery driver for many years while working for haulier Kelsa Trucks; and Ian Bridges, in his new role as product support specialist for Scotland and Ireland. The two technicians


supporting the demonstrators have been recruited from within Ransomes Jacobsen. They are David Land,


a test and


development engineer and Phil Self, a test engineer from the company’s assembly line.
