Suzuki’s Courtesy ATV scheme has once again helped to keep a farmer’s business going during the busy lambing season.
The scheme, which offers customers the use of a new Suzuki ATV when any utility ATV is taken to an authorised dealer for service or repair work – regardless of the make or model – was set up in recognition of the fact that ATVs are such vital tools for farmers’ everyday tasks.
Taking part in the initiative in March, Chris Anderson and son David, of Gulberwick, Shetland, were able to continue tending to their sheep and young ewes, while their machine was undergoing a service.
With assistance from Suzuki dealer, Garriock Bros. Ltd, the farmers were loaned a Suzuki LT-A500XP KingQuad for three days and they were so impressed with the machine that they decided to purchase one for use at both of their holdings in Gulberwick and Skeld. By enabling Chris and his son David to get to the far reaches of their land easier and quicker than before – and saving time and effort when sheep feeding – the Suzuki KingQuad 500 with Power Steering will be a welcome addition to the team.
“The KingQuad 500 Power Steering is an excellent all-round machine,” reported Chris Anderson. “The addition of power steering gives ease of manoeuvrability, great control and responsiveness. Plus, the low box allows you to reduce revs and speed, which is essential for control when on steep ground and rough terrain.”
Speaking of the initiative, Ian Leiper of Garriock Bros. Ltd praised Suzuki’s unique offer, “This has been a great marketing tool for both Garriock Bros. Ltd and Suzuki in Shetland as it allows our potential new customers to 'try before they buy' and confirms to them the quality, build and design of Suzuki ATVs.”
He continues, “We have also been able to offer this Courtesy ATV to existing Suzuki customers who put their quads in for service, giving them a taste of the latest product developments from Suzuki. I am not aware of any other manufacturer who offers anything like this – so I give a big thumbs up to Suzuki on this one!”
