The family-run business, operating out of Swineshead, south of Boston, is running two demonstration units – a range-topping 206/225hp 7-230 Robo-Six and a 119hp version of the mid-range 6H series complete with loader.

“The wide range of products available was an important factor in our decision to switch to Landini for our tractor franchise,” says director Dwayn Clover. “It’s a fantastic product range and one that really suits the diversity of tractor users and their requirements in this area.”

Clover Farm Services has also signed up for another two Italian franchises – Alpego tillage and seeding equipment, and Faresin telehandlers – as the company embarks on a growth plan in its tenth year. “This is a big step for us; there’s a lot to learn and a lot of work to be done,” said Mr Clover.

The machinery sales, service and repairs business is operated alongside farming and agricultural contracting operations, with Dwayn Clover’s partner Sharon Barnes handling administration and marketing.

Dwayn Clover of Clover Farm Services is looking to recruit another service engineer as a result of taking on the Landini and new equipment franchises.

His eldest son Joshua is service manager, second son Jake runs the contracting service, and Ryan Mead handles sales – although as an ‘all hands on deck’ business, Jake and Ryan also wield the spanners when there are service, repair and installation jobs to be done.

“My youngest sons Leo and Lewis like to get involved with the business when they’re not at school,” adds Mr Clover, “and we’re looking to recruit another service engineer as a result of taking on the Landini and new equipment franchises.”
