About Us & History

Fieldtorque Taranaki Ltd is a family owned and operated business. It was started in July 2006 by David & Kathryn Hinton.

David & Kathryn started up an Agriculture Contracting Business back in 1985 with mainly Massey Ferguson tractors and always sticking true to the brand through the years. After building a successful business with these outstanding machines, they decided to sell their business to David’s brother Mark in 2002 and venture into farming, purchasing David’s Great Grandfathers Farm from his Uncle, Robert Hinton.

It was about at this time David & Kathryn’s son, Carl left school and was still very passionate for the Massey Ferguson & Fendt brand. He went off to start his apprenticeship at the local Massey Ferguson & Fendt dealership in Hawera as a tractor mechanic.

Early in 2006 at the dealership Carl was working at, it was announced that it would be closing the doors and shifting back to Feilding. Carl came home that night and talked to his father David insisting that they must do something to keep the brands alive in Taranaki.
