Tractor Sales

After a slow start to the year it has been a bumper few months for us with 4 McCormick Tractors sold in September on top of the 2 sold off the stand at the New Forest Show!

In fact the McCormicks have proven so popular that when our new demonstrator arrived at the beginning of October it was sold the next day!

A couple more are booked to leave in November and needless to say our yard is starting to look a little bare! But fear not we will shortly be taking delivery of our new demo machines an X6040 and a MC130 and loader.

If you would like any more infromation on McCormick tractors or if you would like to try out one of our demonstrators please contact Richard on 01590 611095 / 07887 781799.
