Standen Engineering to supply AVR Harvesters and Crop Handling Equipment

Standen Engineering would like to announce that they are to begin supplying AVR self-propelled potato harvesters and in-store equipment to the whole of the UK.

AVR are renowned for their user friendly machines with long service life and low maintenance costs. As a result the Belgium based company’s self-propelled harvesters are amongst the most popular in mainland Europe.

The AVR range includes 4 row self-propelled harvesters as well as 1 and 2 row trailed bunker harvesters. Their in-store crop handling product offering includes elevators, conveyors, receiving hoppers and pick-up loaders.

The launch of AVR harvesters and in-store equipment further strengthens Standen’s UK product offering in the specialist potato and vegetable machinery market and sits perfectly alongside their own manufactured range which includes; Standen BX Bedformers, Powavator Bedtillers, Megastar and Uniplus Stone & Clod Separators, SP Planters, FM-2 Flail Toppers, QM Windrowers, T2xs & T3 Harvesters and Baselier Hook Tine Cultivators, Haulm Toppers and Combination Planters.

Martyn Gardner, Sales Director at Standen said “We are excited about this new partnership as it gives us a range of products that we haven’t had before, particularly the self propelled and off-set bunker harvesters. We remain dedicated to our core business areas and see this as a massive boost for ourselves and the growers of the UK, who will have access to the AVR products with the support of our Service and Parts departments across the UK.”

AVR harvesters and in-store equipment will be available via Standen from July 2021.
