Most people who know Honeycombes, would be familiar with our regular educational travel excursions.  We have travelled with our customers to visit John Deere factories and various farming endeavours in the US, Thailand and also Brazil.  This year, we have decided to try a new region,…so Honeycombes are planning an agricultural tour of Europe !

The fourteen day trip will be personally escorted by Peter Carcary and is scheduled for March 2018.  Travelling via Dubai, or Abu Dhabi, the tour will include visits to regions in Germany, Holland, Belgium and France.

A highlight will be a visit to the John Deere flagship factory in Mannheim, Germany.  The factory, covering more than 40ha and employing over 3000 staff, produces tractors at a rate of one every three minutes!  That is over 30,000 units, and two-thirds of all tractors produced in Germany!  The factory concentrates on the 6 Series tractors.

For further details, contact Peter Carcary on 0418 779 211, or email peterc@honeycombes.com.au

Honeycombes recently received our first compact 4049M ROPS unit and we have been pleasantly surprised at the ‘back to basics’ build quality and value from a unit built in the USA.

  • The 4049M includes power reverser transmission or an eHydro option.
  • Tier 3 engine with no DEF or PCF filter = basic reliable JD engine.
  • High clearance AG tyres  (Turf and industrial option on wheel spec).
  • Optional Howard 4-in-1 loader kit, fitted for under $8k.
  • The 4049M is a great tractor which would be ideal for the lifestyle person, or a horticulture farmer chasing simplicity and plenty of power from a compact tractor at a realistic price (RRP $30,000).

John Deere are once again releasing the 6M ‘low clearance’ models – but it is for a short time only! They are taking forward orders at the factory for variants (including the 6110M and 6120M) for delivery early next year.
Orchard growers (including macadamia, bananas, mangoes, citrus and avocados) all benefit from the custom-built narrow ‘TARDIS-like’ space cab, “with true, wide tractor stance and an industry exclusive pyramid cab, designed to slide through your crop with a minimum of disturbance”.

Honeycombes Sales and Service are already synonymous with the world-renowned brands John Deere, Mazda, Holden and JCB.  In addition, we are now your local North Queensland dealer for the massive IVECO, Hino and Scania truck manufacturers.

To accommodate this massive change, our Townsville branch has moved from its Ingham Road site, to a great new location at the corners of Woolcock and Langton Streets, opposite Coates Hire.  This excellent new facility boasts more showroom space, a huge workshop area, and a large wash bay, all allowing us to sell and service the largest of trucks.

The Townsville branch will now be known as the Truck and Machinery Centre.  In addition to full sales, parts and service capabilities for IVECO, Hino and Scania, it will house our JCB and industrial sales parts and service departments.  Don’t forget, we are still the main distributor for Gulf Western Oils, ITR Track components and Ground Engaging Tools, and also the Parts Express range of aftermarket parts.

To help us celebrate the launch of our new Truck and Machinery Centre, we have enlisted the help of some of Australia’s finest V8 Supercar drivers.  Come along to our new premises and meet Craig Lowndes from Team Vortex, and Shane Van Gisbergen and Jaimie Whincup from the Red Bull Holden Racing Team.  See the invite and Facebook for more details.

As a wee Christmas treat, we are happy to share our newest corporate video.  We’ve had a fantastic company profile video produced which highlights a few of the sectors where you will currently find Honeycombes Sales & Service working with our excellent customers.

It was quite a difficult task, as we could not include everything – the video would have been too long!!  We feel that this video (a little under eight minutes) should leave people with a good idea of ‘what we are about’, and hopefully create a desire to find out more!

Below are the links to the full-length version and the shorter, social media version (they are in both low and high resolution).

Enjoy!

Wow, as I write this, there are less than SIX weeks until Christmas!!  If, like me, you have not got it all sorted and are still on the lookout for great Christmas deals, then you should take a peek at the John Deere Christmas Toy Sale.
