Situated in the middle of New Zealand’s most intensive cropping region, the Drummond & Etheridge service departments in Ashburton and Christchurch are focused on doing the best job, in the shortest time – so you are not without your machinery for any longer than necessary.

Drummond & Etheridge has more than 20 technicians across its two service teams, a fleet of 18 field vehicles and access to the largest range of John Deere parts in New Zealand.

A top-quality after-hours service is critical for cropping operators and Drummond & Etheridge has a well-earned reputation for being the best in Canterbury. During the peak of the cropping season, there are technicians on standby at all times.

The lube and servicing trailer travels to hundreds of farms annually – changing oil, replacing filters and disposing of waste oil and coolant.

You may want to consider a Drummond & Etheridge fixed-cost service agreement, which allows you to budget and schedule servicing for your agricultural machinery.

Through its Repairs and Spares division, Drummond & Etheridge also services older tractor makes and models and items of agricultural machinery. You have the option of using new parts, selecting from a range of after-market, or purchasing used parts.

Drummond & Etheridge has a dedicated service team that focuses entirely on the Golf & Turf and Commercial Mowing clients.
