Students Ploughing Forward with New State-of-the-Art Tractors Bicton College students are cultivating modern hands-on skills with the arrival of two new tractors for 2014. The new Holland tractors, supplied by CR Willcocks based in Heathfield, Devon are two state-of-the-art models, built to the latest industry specifications. Specialising in the land-based sector, agriculture and engineering students at Bicton College will benefit from use of the tractors for training purposes and practical tasks across the college grounds and working farm. Supporting their pro-active environmental aims, the acquisition of the tractors at Bicton provides a positive asset as the machinery adheres to the latest EU emission control standards. With the recent development of the F3 Project, the College is committed to a long-term plan aiming for eventual fossil fuel free farming, and utilising new machinery and alternative working methods plays an important part in the realisation of this endeavour. Senior Technician in Engineering Geoff Nevitt says, Both new Holland tractors offer a combination of renowned characteristics as well as new technology. Significant ergonomic features will make day to day operation easier with improved performance and productivity for both students and staff.
