Loyal customers make maintenance time worth it for Mooroopna business

By Rodney Woods

Clean and well maintained machinery is the key to the success of Mooroopna business Gaffy's Tractor Hire.

A family owned and operated business that has been serving the Goulburn Valley and beyond for more than 17 years, Gaffy’s Tractor Hire continues to be passionate about providing a wide range of tractors and farm machinery.

“We spend a lot of our time making sure the tractors and machines have been thoroughly checked over, inside and out, before they go on to our customers,” director Tim Gaffy said.

“We pride ourselves on the repeat business we receive from our loyal customers.”

Recently, the team has welcomed full-time mechanic Dylan Prentice, who has a background in agricultural machinery and brings with him extensive experience from around the Goulburn Valley.

But that expertise has not been needed as much as Mr Gaffy would like, due to a lack of summer cropping because of the cost of irrigation water.

“However, the recent rain event has boosted confidence in winter cropping,” he said.
