Following a successful showing at the Spring Farm Machinery Show in Millstreet, Cork, farm machinery distributor McHale Plant Sales has received a number of orders from silage contractors for their Komatsu WA320PZ-6 wheel loader.

The company claims the unit is proving popular in the agricultural sector due to its speed, high production performance and low fuel cost in comparison to its rivals.

Operationally, the WA320 comes fitted with a 3.2-tonnes bucket which can be released and replaced with a 14 ft wide fold out rake, depending on use.

Aside from Komatsu, McHale is better known amongst farmers as national distributors of Zetor tractors and Merlo telehandlers whose range includes the Multifarmer handler-cum-tractor hybrid.
