Quality Assured machines are ex-hire / second hand machines that come with a 6 month or 500 hr Burden Bros Agri Ltd warranty. They have undergone a thorough workshop checklist and have had a hydraulic, dyno and AC test. A full service history is guaranteed and all tractors will have a minimum of 30% tyre tread.
