19-year old Nikolai Utne Helminsen has already spent a considerable number of hours behind the wheel of a tractor. He has been working since his early teens, first with a mower with a snowplough fitted to it, and now with a Fendt 516 Vario, and as an eager football supporter, he likes the fact, that the wheels are in Frederikstad red.
"I’m an apprentice at a landscape gardening company during the day, and will complete my certificate of apprenticeship before the summer. And then I also work privately during the evenings and at weekends,” explains Nikolai Utne Helminsen. Before Christmas, he got a Fendt 516 Vario, which he uses in is job as a landscaper gardener and contractor. During the winter, the tractor is used to clear and grit municipal gritting routes. But don’t let Nikolai’s young age fool you.
