It’s not every day you get asked to deliver a Wide Combine Harvester into Kew Gardens in London. To say the least… this was a huge task in terms of logistical and transportation problems, accessibility and scale.
It was one of those ‘one off’ haulage projects that even caught the eye of popular broadcaster and gardener, Alan Titchmarsh, in his fascinating TV programme series called, ‘A Year at Kew’.
Anyone who saw the BBC2 programme would understand that hauling such a large piece of agricultural machinery into these world famous gardens gave us a few unexpected new challenges, but not beyond Coy’s capabilities.
Trying to put a quart into a pint pot springs to mind… and it certainly created a worthy story line for Alan Titchmarsh’s viewers and Kew’s Head Gardener.
