Power in a compact frame

Based near Haverfordwest in Pembrokeshire the ARION 660, which has clocked up over 2,700 hours already in its first year, is used for a wide range of jobs, from mowing, tanker work and fertiliser spreading, through to more specialist work such as bedforming for potatoes and harvesting daffodils.

Out of the tractors we looked at and had on demo, one was ruled out very quickly as we just didn’t like it, so it just came down to the ARION and one other. What finally swung it in the ARION’s favour is the fact that it has plenty of power, but in a compact frame, so it’s very manoeuvrable. It’s also very comfortable to operate, the cab specification is right, the suspension’s very good and visibility excellent. It’s got it all and is very good on the road, and the back-up and support from RIVERLEA is brilliant. It’s done all we want of it and is well on top of the job.

Once you find out what the CMATIC transmission can do, it’s really good and great that it just keeps pulling through without needing to stop and change ranges.

The new touch screen for CEBIS also makes life so quick and easy. At the touch of the screen everything you need can be set from there, making operating the tractor relaxing and allows you to just get on with the job.
