Are Fendt and Kuhn happy bed-fellows in Dublin?
Farmworks Machinery – based in Belinstown, Ballyboughal, Co. Dublin – held Fendt and Kuhn product information days this weekend (Friday, July 6, and Saturday, July 7).
Taking pride of place at the event was a C-Series (straw walker) combine harvester (main/featured picture).
Also noteworthy was a green-liveried silage wagon (pictured below) – the result of AGCO’s purchase of Lely’s grass/silage harvesting equipment line-up.
It was also the first chance for many to see Fendt’s self-propelled sprayer (pictured below on the right of the photograph) up close and personal. The machine present at the event is the first such unit in the country.
Tractors present included models from the 300, 500, 700, 800 and 900 series. Product specialists from Fendt were there to answer queries on tractor set-up, guidance and ISOBUS control.
Kuhn was also out in force. Red-liveried machines at the event included front and rear-mounted mower-conditioners, a fixed-chamber ‘combi’ baler-wrapper, a variable-chamber baler, a plough, a cultivator, a one-pass system and a trailed sprayer.
Farmworks Machinery is a relatively new addition to the Fendt and Kuhn dealer families here in Ireland. The business is headed up by Ciaran Tierney.
It was founded back in 2010. Discussions started with AGCO around 2014. In 2016 it was appointed as a full, franchised Fendt dealership – prompting the addition of some new staff.
