Farming in Focus Autumn 2020

DON’T BUY THE CHEAPEST, BUY THE BEST! Daniel Webster - Branch Manager, Bellevue Trading, Swan Hill

Daniel Webster is a Branch Manager at Bellevue Trading. He has worked in machinery dealerships for the past 21 years in his home town of Swan Hill in Victoria and has been in machinery sales for the last 8 years. Swan Hill is on the Murray River. There are varying soil types and a vast array of farming operations in the area. With a mix of both dry land and irrigation farming the region has a diversity of farming systems. These include broadacre cropping, livestock, horticulture, viticulture, Almonds and Pistachios. Daniel enjoys working with producers across the region, “I love the fact that you can find yourself somewhere different most days and it’s the people. I feel like the

most genuine people work in the agricultural sector and I’m very lucky to be a part of it.” Daniel sells a range of machinery to farmers across the district. He is always listening to and working with people to find the best solutions for their operation. Daniel is a big fan of K-Line machines having sold them to farmers across the region. “K-line over engineer everything they build which is a huge positive when you’re looking for ground penetration. The fact that they’re Australian made goes a long way. It’s nice to actually discuss options, alterations and improvements first hand with the manufacturers who understand Australian conditions.

The whole team is very knowledgeable and efficient. The support we receive with in field setup, demonstration days and field day support is excellent.”

Daniel’s Tip: “Don’t buy the cheapest buy the best. I don’t think we could find a better time to buy an Australian made product.”

“I am really impressed with the quality and attention to detail of K- Lines machines. I have had very few problems with the machines, but with the few small issues I have had I’ve called Daniel and he talks to K-Line and between them they fix it promptly and to a high standard, which is all I can ask for.” Greg Rae, ‘Yal Yal,’ Kyalite NSW
