The Walford Campus of North Shropshire College (NSC) has taken delivery of two new telehandlers for the students to practice their skills on, one a JCB supplied from Rea Valley Tractors and a Massey Ferguson from RVW Pugh.
“These machines will offer students an excellent opportunity to develop skills” commented Farm Manager Richard Aldis.
Telehandlers are now an invaluable tool for modern day farming so by giving students the time to practice their driving, they learn about servicing and also are able to gain their telehandler licence to be ready to enter the working environment.
The College also uses these machines to offer outside organisations and individuals training in the safe use of telehandlers.
