Power Farming says it now stocks an extra $500,000 of parts at its hubs in Christchurch and Invercargill to help cut contractors’ downtime in the South Island.

It is targeting regions with lots of McHale baler-wrapper combinations, Kverneland triple mowers and large rakes. The aim is to make parts immediately available. 

Dave Pritchard, group parts manager, said, “For a critical range of products during the harvest season we aim to ensure that no-one is more than four hours away from required parts 24/7.”

Power Farming, a New Zealand owned and run family business, has three parts facilities in Australasia: Morrinsville, Christchurch and Melbourne. These support 26 NZ dealerships employing 180 trained technicians.
