Cheshire Dairy Farmer Remains Loyal to Weidemann

A Cheshire based dairy farmer has recently traded his old Weidemann wheeled loader for the latest version following six years of faultless service.

The 4070 telescopic loader is one of nearly 40 models in Weidemann’s comprehensive line-up of articulated wheeled loaders

Common Farm, located near Winsford, is run by Steve and Claire Roston and currently home to 190 Cassia Holstein high yielding cows as well as 150 young follow-on stock.

The original Weidemann 4070 machine was chosen after Mr. Roston spotted a feature in a farming publication and decided it would be worth arranging a demonstration. So impressed was he with the machine’s performance that the unit that arrived at the farm never left.

“Over the last six years we had no bad experiences at all with the old loader, not even a blown bulb,” said Mr. Roston, “despite it being kept busy 6 hours per day, 7 days per week - and at the time of change even the tyres were only 50% worn!”

Supplied by local dealer Cheshire Farm Machinery, the new machine has seamlessly taken over the important roles of placing bedding, moving large straw bales, feeding and much more.

“Total reliability is vital for us,” continued Mr. Roston, “And I’m pleased that the new model appears to be even better built than the last one and is certainly an entirely different animal as far as specification and comfort are concerned. It’s tacking all the jobs with ease, it never gets stuck and fuel economy is excellent and it’s fair to say I would be lost without it.”

The 4070 telescopic loader is one of nearly 40 models in Weidemann’s comprehensive line-up of articulated wheeled loaders. Weighing in at 5800 kg, this unit is powered by a fuel-efficient Perkins 4-cylinder engine developing 74.5 kW @ 2200 rpm and features a tilting cab structure which provides outstanding access for routine servicing and maintenance.
