Joskin – Strength of Experience

Some of our readers may not be aware that Peacock & Binnington work alongside Joskin to provide Joskin products to farms across Lincolnshire & Yorkshire. With more than 50 years of experience and more than 115,000 machines sold throughout the world, Joskin puts its resources more than ever at the service of the farmer by offering products that are increasingly adapted to the evolution of the agricultural world, and that is why our customers love Joskin.

Peacock & Binnignton customer, Rob Buckle, Owner and Director of Buckle Farms near Hull, told us why Joskin was a great fit for his farm:

‘Buckle Farms is a forward-thinking arable farm in East Yorkshire spanning a large area of flat Holderness land; growing cereals, OSR, vining peas, beans and contract farming some grassland. Our cereals are primarily used for pig feed, as we work very closely alongside White Rose Farms, whom we also spread slurry for with our Joskin tankers.'

'Our business has expanded in the last few years, meaning an extra larger trailer was required for the busier harvest period. The larger capacity of this trailer compared to a standard grain trailer meant that fewer trips had to be made from field to yard, and our two combines did not have to stand waiting for trailers, especially as this was working alongside our existing Drakkar trailer. The aim of increased efficiency in our harvest operation was made possible by the purchase of this trailer.
Having previous experience of Joskin implements has shown us the quality of the brand, as well as the ease of use for the operators. Adding another Joskin trailer to our fleet was an easy decision thanks to the great back-up and support from our dealer, Peacock and Binnington, who we have bought all of our Joskin implements through.'

'We have been using our trailer on a near-daily basis since it arrived back in July 2021. The moving floor has been extremely useful for making use of grain stores which cannot be tipped in with typical tipping trailers. The handling on the road is excellent, feeling safe and secure on the back of any tractor, as well as the volume allowing us to make fewer trips and increase our efficiency.'

Richard Cross, Director and Area Sales representative at our Halsham branch, explained why Peacock & Binnington sell the Joskin brand:

"We sell the Joskin brand because it holds a great product range to suit our customers’ requirements. With the choice of products being straight off the shelf or custom built, it really gives our customers the flexibility to choose what they would like to suit their business’ needs.
Our customers are looking for good, reliable products that are good value for money and most importantly, excellent sales, parts and service backup."
