Tractor dealers out in force to woo farmers and contractors

McCormick tractor dealers are mounting a concerted effort to catch the eye of farmers and contractors at this year’s Midlands Machinery Show.

No fewer than five dealerships supplying and supporting the red and silver machines are exhibiting at the Newark Showground on 20-21 November – some for the first time, as the event continues to grow in popularity.

Comprehensive  range

As a result of the number of McCormick dealers attending, visitors can expect to see a comprehensive cross-section of models from a range that starts with the 43hp X2.20 compact and extends to the 310hp X8.680 VT-Drive for high capacity tillage and grassland operations.

Between those extremes are different models providing a choice of power outputs, features and specifications including powershift and stepless transmissions, and technologies including guidance, Isobus and precision farming applications.

A joint stand will bring together A Downing Agricultural Engineers based at Gorefield near Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, who are collaborating with first-time Midlands Machinery Show exhibitors Catley Engineering from Desford, Leicestershire.

“With LAMMA having moved further west, we find that more of our customers are going to the Midlands Machinery Show instead,” says Andrew Downing. “So it seems to be the right thing to do, following on from our successful field demonstration recently, to help raise our profile.”

Regular exhibitor Robert Crawford & Son, from Frithville, near Boston, will have an outdoor stand showing McCormick models from the top end of the range, Meanwhile, fellow Lincolnshire dealer The Tractor Shop, from Louth, has opted for a stand in the marquee this year.

Larger premises

“We launched our involvement with McCormick at the show three years ago and it’s become a regular event for us,” says Sam Plowright of The Tractor Shop. “But we decided to do things a bit differently this time, moving into the marquee with McCormick X5 and X6 series tractors for visitors to have a close look at, hopefully in the warm.”

Moore Farm Services, which recently moved into larger premises at Harworth near Doncaster, has also exhibited at the show before. But this year will be the dealer’s first time with McCormick tractors on the stand after a change of franchise coinciding with the expansion.
