AGCO Area Sales Manager West Victoria, Chris Browne was impressed with the increasing interest in efficient farming practices.

“It was great to see some new and familiar faces at the event and hear a lot of positive views on the increasing importance of technology and improved efficiencies in farming practices in the Wimmera region. There is a lot of enthusiasm for products that tick all the boxes in broad acre farming which is increasingly about economies of scale”, said Chris Browne,

Traction AG Business Manager Will de Fégely was keen to catch up with guests and also spoke of the increasing significance local farmers are giving to efficient farming systems

“It was a good opportunity for farmers to meet our staff and get a look at our new premises as well as the range of AGCO products. The region has increasing demand for technology that will drive down costs in broad acre farming. With our Horsham and Nhill branches, we are looking forward to meeting this demand for a complete product range that exceeds the expectations of customers and is backed up by reliable service support and a global parts network”, Will said.

Traction AG is set to open their Nhill branch in October during the Nhill Show. The team is looking forward to a bright future supporting the Wimmera farming community with products and service support that meet the demands of modern operators in the region.

New Zealand AGCO Dealers Put on a Night to Remember

325 AGCO customers attended the Manfield launch of the MF6600 Series and Fendt 500 Vario.

One of the best arrays of AGCO products in New Zealand was on display at the recent Central New Zealand Customer evening held in Manfield and attended by a large gathering of 325 customers and dealer staff.

The event was an initiative of four local dealers – TFM Tractors, TRC Tractors Fielding and FieldTorque – presenting the audience with the Iseki brand and the surprise unveiling of the new MF6600 Series 120-140hp and Fendt 500 Vario 125hp-165hp tractors.

Also in attendance was AGCO staff, who offered a detailed overview of the new Fendt and Massey Ferguson tractors.

But it wasn’t all serious business – the audience was also entertained with a video of a “Top Gear” inspired hot lap that saw the Iseki, MF6600 and Fendt 500 go head to head at the nearby Manfield race track, followed later in the evening by a uniquely local comedic performance.

While it was a great opportunity to introduce exciting new product ranges, the evening was just as much a celebration for customers and a chance for dealers to show their appreciation of their support.

AGCO Australia staff invited to present and enjoy the evening were impressed by the great atmosphere and overwhelming support shown buy the large number of attendees.

“This has probably been one of the best dealer events I have attended. It was great to see the professionalism and dedication of the New Zealand dealers that organised the evening and the large number of customers that came along and had a great time”, said Paul Darcy, Director of Sales AGCO Australia.

Special mention was reserved for TRC, who were elevated to four star dealer status as part of AGCO’s program of dealer development.

AGCO Australia would like to thank TFM Tractors, TRC Tractors Fielding and FieldTorque for the great event and all New Zealand customers that participated.

Fendt: The most popular brand amongst contractors in Germany

More than 40 percent (%) of German contractors worked with a Fendt tractor in their businesses in 2013. In the previous year, Fendt was also the most widely used brand amongst German contractors.

The German tractor brand Fendt (40.4 percent) and the US brand John Deere (18.1 percent) are most frequently cited as the first, second or third preferred brand in German contracting enterprises. The brands Case-IH, Deutz and New Holland follow in the third to fifth places. These results correspond to those of the last market survey from 2012. Nearly two of ten contractors want to invest in a new or used tractor this year. The greatest interest here was in the brands Fendt (44.4 %) and John Deere (27.8 %).

A further result of the survey: The more tractors that are already present in a contracting business, the higher the percentage of investment plans for a new or used tractor. Contractors with 20 or more tractors have the most plans to invest. Of these, 42.9 percent want to buy a new tractor.

2,650 contractors surveyed

These figures originate from the LohnunternehmerScanner 2013/14 survey, which was carried out by the AgriDirect Deutschland GmbH from December 2013 up to and including January 2014. The business operations and future plans of 2,650 contractors were surveyed for this market scanner.
