Yes, our visit to a Damcon customer is always fruitful for both; you discover new things all the time. We knew that our hoeing machine not only keeps the weeds away well, but that the soil also remains moister after hoeing, is new to us, chapeau!
An old saying, but still true! We have to admit it, sometimes our salesman Anne is a bit too enthusiastic. But in this case, well, then it's understandable. "Martin, with the next 2 machines you get a cake." If you then deliver the 4th electric pruning platform within 1 year, you must also keep that promise!
A great picture of this Damcon KLR-2000 2M attached to the Hitachi wheel loader of 18 tons. The total weight is 25 tons when there is a tree in it. And yes, if you as a team have built this machine with passion, then you should be proud. Because building Damcon machines remains a wonderful job!
“Hej Leen, can you help us with the following problem? We have a urgent job for the Swedish railways, we need to transplant a large number of trees quickly. These have to pass under the electricity wires, but with a tree transplanter and tree we are too high. We need an extra frame so that the tree can lie more horizontally.”
In collaboration with TCO, we gave a tour to 3 groups of students from Lingeborgh College in Geldermalsen. Really fun to do, to get young people excited about the profession of tree cultivation. Growing trees with the help of Damcon machines, the most beautiful profession in the world!!
“Very nice working with your electric pruning platforms!” says Gerrit Jan Bunt. “The new one, but also the first machine of 20 years old is indestructible. We have already had so much fun with it, I wish everyone such an electric machine.”
Yes, that's how it goes at Damcon... If the internship goes well and the click is there from both sides, then you have a match. And a 9 for your graduation project and the many challenges that await, then you even have a very good match.
More and more customers are discovering the advantages of the Damcon tree spade on a wheel loader. The smart shape of the root ball: more roots, flat bottom.
28 years of experience, that is very welcome in our Damcon repair workshop. The work is becoming more and more varied, especially commercial machines.
The question is coming up more and more often: How durable is a Damcon machine, how long will this machine last (with little maintenance)? And how is that compared to a Fendt tractor? The answer recently came from a customer from Sweden. Will you count?
“Look at the men!”. Jan van de Bijl and trainee Ruben Meijer on the pruning platform. During his sales manager internship, Ruben was busy promoting and selling the new Electrocoup F3020.
Who has the youth, has the future! That was our motivation to enter into this unique collaboration with the VLC. And “smart doers”, yes we certainly need that at Damcon.
Sometimes new customers ask: How did it all start at Damcon? Well, that is a very long story that is almost 55 years old. A unique and original story indeed. And with this photo, our story is a little easier to tell.
Do you also enjoy the autumn colors? At Damcon we do, we especially like red. Recently we were allowed to deliver 3 beautiful Carraro articulated tractors:
One more welder! That is very nice with the many machines that we have to build. Tijs Vermeulen recently joined the welding department as a construction fitter/ welder.
