Holtrop Farms wins appeal over combine

Holtrop Farms has won its tribunal appeal over problems experienced with Delta Power over repairs to a 2008 Lexion 570R combine.

John and John D. Holtrop argued that the combine they bought in 2010 from Elmira Farm Equipment was still covered by a Delta Power warranty, but the company refused to come and fix repeated problems with the hydraulic lift and motor.

The Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs Appeal Tribunal has ruled that the Holtrops don’t have to pay a Delta Power invoice for $25,698 because the work ought to have covered by warranty and Delta Power must pay Holtrop Farms $9,217.59 to cover the bills for repairs the Holtrops had to purchase from others when Delta would not come to fix the combine.
