J Riley Agri imported the first Vervaet tanker harvesters into the UK in 1994. The machines were right and coupled with Rileys first class backup they quickly became the market leader. So much so that Rileys became known as ‘the six-row specialists.’ Today there are over 160 Vervaet harvesters in the country, easily making them the obvious market leader. The15-strong Riley team looks after all aspects of Vervaet harvesters and self-propelled slurry applicators and provide a first-class level of service to customers nationwide.
