Jason Tripe’s meticulously restored John Deere 2140 is currently residing, pride of the display, in the Drummond & Etheridge Blenheim showroom on Warwick Street.
The John Deere 2140 was Jason’s first tractor when he started his business. It is the tractor that set him on the journey to where JTC Viticulture is today and holds a lot of sentiment.
The tractor has undergone a complete restoration over four years, using genuine parts and specially engineered componentry.
A self-confessed Deere enthusiast, Jason has four new tractors on order for delivery later in the year, bringing his total up to 55 John Deere’s since the inception of JTC Viticulture in 1990.
Utilising the latest in machinery and technology, Marlborough based JTC Viticulture is committed to practical, pragmatic and professional viticulture. JTC offers a full range of management services from full vineyard management through to designated areas of management or seasonal contracts.
