Gregoire Besson Blog

Welcome to the Gregoire Besson blog. Here we plan to post 'chatty' type comments about things that have caught our attention, have tickled us or, heaven forbid, got our dander up! Why not join in the discussion? It doesn't HAVE to be farming related, but try not to wander too far off topic.

"You'll never bend a Besson!"

Will Waterer of the Tuckwell Group has sent us these photographs of a garage accidentally knocked with a piece of Gregoire Besson machinery. As you can see the damage to the structure was pretty significant, but the machine? Good as new! 

"I have been telling customers for years, but, due to unprecedented demand, here at last is photographic evidence that 'You'll never bend a Besson'.... You will however, and trust me on this one, bend your neighbours garage if you hit it with a Besson!" says Will.

The neighbour has been compensated for the damage, but the message is clear: You'll never bend a Besson!

Cereals 2013: Day 1

Cereals got of to a great start today, we'd like to thank everyone who popped onto our stand to say hello!

Taking pride of place at the front of our stand is the new Rabe Carry Bret Tillage machine. The Rabe Carry Bret combines tines, discs and a rear packer, offering optimal performance for shallow or deep tillage. Available in 4m, 5m and 6m working width models, the Carry Bret is equipped with 8–12 tines to promote drainage and root penetration, 32–48 discs for mixing and chopping stubble, followed by a rear packer for a perfect finish.

Throughout the day JCB Agriculture demonstrated their tractors with Gregoire Besson and Rabe machinery on the ground in front of our stand. Take a look at the video of the new Rabe Carry Bret being demonstrated:

Visit us on stand 13-L-1313 tomorrow for further information about Gregoire Besson and Rabe Machinery.
