IT'S no idle boast that Walton's Geraldton John Deere salesman John Glynn can guarantee customer service and support.
"Just ask me," he said with a grin. "I'm the customer."
John, who has been a salesman at Walton's for the last four years, is also a hobby farmer, specifically maintaining a team of show horses for dressage and hacking on his 109ha (270ac) Chapman Valley property.
But he also likes collecting tractors and in his collection are a 75kW (100hp) 4280 Chamberlain, a 37kW (50hp) Same Deutz and a 15kW (20hp) Yanmar.
His latest addition is a new 20kW (26hp) John Deere 2520, which he sold to himself.
"It joins my collection but it will be fully employed clearing stables, spraying fence lines and firebreaks and general utility work as a front-end loader," John said. "I've equipped it with a 150 litre spray tank and a small boom which is easily de-mounted when I'm not spraying."
John, who hails from a family farm in Dongara (his dad owns a 2800ha, 7000ac property in south Dongara), worked for Walton's as a parts manager for six years before turning to sales.
And he loves it.
"It's a great industry to be in and I'm lucky to be involved in selling and enjoying what I like doing," he said.
Apart from collecting tractors, John said his next venture might be collecting old hay gear.
Well John, the sun is shining.
