New North of England base for Reco Machinery

askham BrYAN Askham Bryan College in Yorkshire is the new location for Rustons Engineering's demonstration fleet of compact tractors and ancillary amenity equipment in Northern England.

Reco has supplied the college with three Kioti compact tractors on a commercial contract hire basis and has lent a further four tractors and a range of equipment including flail and rotary mowers, hedge cutters, rotavators, stone buriers, back hoes and fertiliser spreaders.

The on-loan machinery is available for use by the college for teaching and grounds maintenance when it is not needed for demonstrations to dealers and
end-users.

Horticulture courses attract some 100 full and part-time students a year to Askham Bryan College, which also has extensive grounds with seven sports
pitches and provides services to local schools and other organisations. Last year it won the UK Landscape Skills Competition.

Stewart Ward, the college's horticulture resource manager, said the arrangement with Reco had improved the quality of the horticulture-based courses: 'Our students can now work with a wide range of up-to-date equipment, from grass-cutting to ground levelling, which is extremely valuable for them'.

Richard Ruston, Reco's managing director, said: 'We are delighted to be working closely with Askham Bryan College in this way. The college now has
access to a wide range of Kioti tractors and ancillary Reco machinery, while we have a base in northern England for dealer and end-user demonstrations
and training. It's an arrangement that benefits both partners.'
