After leaving school Tony did a fitters apprenticeship at NZ Railways Hillside workshops in Dunedin, but after five years went back to work on the family farm and did contracting in the summer months with a conventional baler. Tony's dad was more into the stock so Tony looked after the machinery side of the farm. Tony eventually brought a medium square baler and went contracting for 17 years while also traveling to England and did five years straw baling in the UK during the NZ off season. Tony's passion for tractors and machinery then lead to a sales role for a local Otago company before moving to JJ's as a sales rep in 2017.
