Servicing and Repairs
Servicing can not only extend the life of your machinery, but giving a thorough check over at regular intervals will also reduce the risk of unexpected breakdowns, as underlying problems are more likely to be identified and resolved. By keeping your equipment in tip top condition, you will also help to maximise its resale value and will reduce the cost of expensive emergency repairs in the future.
Our team of highly skilled, regularly trained engineers and technicians are able to perform in-depth services using comprehensive checklists and the latest computer diagnostics to assess the electrical components alongside the usual wearing parts.
As well as carrying out essential servicing, repairs and maintenance from our extensive workshop facilities at Avon Works, just outside Goudhurst in Kent, our engineers are also able to travel to work on farm, whether you are based in the South East or further afield.
For customers outside the local area, we also benefit from good working relationships with many dealers in other areas and can provide specialist advice to their engineers over the phone if required. We keep most fittings in stock to ensure that we can make hydraulic hoses on the spot, and we also offer service and repairs of the Felco and FelcoTronic electronic secateurs.
As an official National Sprayer Testing Scheme (NSTS) registered centre our team of qualified NSTS examiners are able to carry out work both from our Avon Works site in Kent, and on farm for customers located in the South East and further afield. We can also carry out a pre-test sprayer service to ensure your sprayer will pass the NSTS sprayer test. Both the service and the test are incredibly comprehensive. Designed to cover all application components of the sprayer, we look at the control systems, hoses and pipework, nozzles and nozzle control systems, filters and more to ensure the sprayer is working correctly, efficiently, and safely.
Engineering and Manufacturing
NP Seymour has manufactured specialist equipment for many decades. Since Nick started as a mobile engineer in 1974 he has gone on to design and fabricate many notable pieces of bespoke equipment for farmers and growers in the UK.
This includes the first sheep-shower conveyor dip, as well as our range of table top strawberry sprayers, which are all made to measure from our Avon Works site.
As well as custom building products, from sprayers to tractor mounted picking platforms, our team of skilled engineers can also modify your existing equipment to ensure that it fits neatly onto different tractors or within your changed requirements.
If you have something specific in mind too, we can also produce one-off manufactured or specialist pieces of equipment to suit your individual situation and growing requirements.
The facilities and workshops at Avon Works have been expanded several times since NP Seymour moved here in 1992. This allows us to carry over 9,000 lines of stock and we also maintain close relationships with suppliers to ensure quick delivery of other non-stock items.
Our parts team have extensive knowledge of the products we supply and work hard to ensure that you find the items you need. In order to help you identify spare parts required for your equipment, we are also able to email across specific parts catalogues for all the machines that we supply spare parts for.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org stating which catalogue you require, and we will email the catalogue to you. The file will be sent in an Adobe Acrobat PDF format. Please also check that your email provider will allow you to accept large files, as some of the documents can be anything up to 32MB.
Genuine original spare parts are manufactured to the very highest quality and are specially developed for use in your machinery to ensure that performance is maintained throughout its life.
We currently stock parts for the following:
- Renault, Carraro, Massey Ferguson and Fendt tractors;
- Berthoud, Hardi, Munckhof, Victair, and OCLL sprayers;
- Votex, Perfect, and HMF/Bullion pulverisers;
- Sprayer nozzles including Albuz, Teejet and Spraying Systems; and
- Various miscellaneous parts including bearings, belts, carbon filters, HEPA carbon cab filters, lubricants and PTO shafts to name just a few.
We also stock Felco, ARS, Bahco saws and pruners, alongside a full range of many other sundries. Providing we have the items in stock, any spare parts ordered are dispatched on the same day. Others parts and sundries which are not kept in stock will be with you as soon as possible.
Whether you have a breakdown; are in need of an urgent replacement; require a certain machine just for a few days of the year; or want to trial a product before purchase, we have a selected range of machines for hire.
Our hire equipment can be booked out for anywhere between one day to a week at a time, providing that we have suitable availability. Please contact the team for information, including which machines are available.
