Jamie Bucknell milks 100 dairy cows on 170 acres near Tiverton, Devon, and in September 2018 made the move to trade his old Deutz tractor for a Case IH Maxxum 145 ActiveDrive 8 machine, bought from Devon-based James Pryce Tractors.

“Having had a manual for the last ten years, I knew that I wanted a semi-automatic transmission in my new tractor. I asked Case IH to price their equivalent model to the Deutz model I had in mind, and they were very competitive.”
