GREAT MOUNTAIN WINES

GRAVEYARD TASKS

CALIFORNIAN MACH 4

When in 1969, grandfather Dauphin bottled his first wine to present at

the II Exposition des Vins du Val d'Aoste he could never have imagined

that it would have become a family business. Monsieur Dauphin’s sons

have carried on what their father started and today, helped by their

own sons, they cultivate 10 hectares of high quality vineyards using

organic techniques. Their important helpers are an SRX and an SRH

Infinity. A fusion of tradition and modernity.

The AC tractors stop at nothing and amongst the many activities taken

on by the red all-rounders are the tasks needing to be done in the

graveyard. The Dutch cemetery Heiderust has recently acquired an SX

7800, much to the delight of the operators, who enthusiastically told

us: “The SX 7800 has a powerful engine and it has excellent handling

capabilities and is multipurpose. It is a loyal ally when carrying out all

tasks associated with green area maintenance”.

The Hamilton brothers and Ron Nicholsen are oenologists and

producers of amazing wines, which are amongst the best in California.

For many years they have trusted the care of their 70-acre vineyards,

situated at the foot of the Maycamas mountains to an external

company, but given the importance of this activity they have decided

to take care of it themselves personally. They needed a strong safe

tractor with good handling, capable of climbing the steep Oakville

hillsides: in one word- the Mach 4. “We think it is the best tractor in the

Napa Valley” said Hamilton to AC Area Manager, Oliver Stamm“I tell all

my wine-growing friends about it!” Thanks for the excellent publicity,

Hamilton!
