Breakdowns seem to come at the busiest times! Our agricultural engineers are called upon by local farmers to repair almost every type of machine used in agriculture.
Over the years our technicians have acquired the ability to get equipment moving again be it in the arable or livestock sector. Whilst we prefer to work in the works at Woodhall Spa where everything is to hand there are times when an on-site visit is necessary and for this we are suitably equipped.
In our works we continue with our policy of investing in digital age machinery to keep costs competitive. But some of our heavy old machines still remain for these perform well and regular servicing by the original manufacturers keep them working as new.
Likewise, we encourage farmers to have their equipment refurbished or rebuilt out of season not only to minimise breakdowns but to extend its working life also; it can be truly cost effective. E. Skinns Ltd will be pleased to give you an estimate.
Mass production means today’s farm machinery is built to be used on a wide range of farms and horticultural holdings. On occasions, those using it will see ways of enhancing its performance to meet their particular needs. Our agricultural engineers can make modifications to suit.
In the livestock sector corrosion is an ever-present problem; we are called upon often to rectify damage caused. We use commercial grades of stainless steel extensively and this may be a solution worth considering. We have access to shot blasting, plating, and galvanising facilities also, and powder-coating and stove enamelling paint treatments.
