The T234 will play a key role in the Hall’s further development of their property, taking advantage of the access to irrigation which in turn has created the opportunity to triple the potato production on the farm.

“We plan to use this for most of our ground prep for our potatoes. We will rip and hoe with that and may do a bit of cultivation for our fodder crop if we need it, but mostly it will be on a potato harvester with hydraulic wheel motors running at 5000psi, so we need more power and will probably be putting about 300 hours a year on the harvester”, says Tim.

Although the T234 is a step up from his previous machines Tim says the (insert Valtra Armrest Name) is proving easy to get up an and going
“Initially with the new machine, I found it a bit scary but then found it remarkably simple, it really is. Compared to the old girl there is a bit of difference but it is really very simple to use”

With different soil profiles and higher and lower land with diverse moisture levels, Tim needs to be able to negotiate variable conditions, often within the same paddock.

“We Like the (Valtra Transmision) with the various soil types we’ve got. Sometimes with a bit of sand we can go quicker, and sometimes with the heavier stuff, with the wet stuff we slow down, but we’ve got no gears sticks, there’s nothing like that. Hopefully with that we also we get a bit of a fuel saving.

While there is still a lot of affection for the older Valtra models that are still worked hard around the Hall farm, the new technology and comforts of the T234 is already leaving and impression with Tim.

“It’s unbelievably quiet, obviously the old girl we have wasn’t built yesterday, but this new one is really quiet and comfortable and it’s got a fridge. A cold sandwich and a cold drink is pretty important I reckon, and I suppose a cold beer at the end of the day is alright as well.”
