New Holland & Ernest Doe

Doe Show

Our close relationship with New Holland dates back more than 60 years, spanning back even before the time when we adopted Ford as our sole tractor franchise back in 1957!

We are the largest UK distributor of New Holland agricultural products which includes tractors, combine harvesters, balers, forage harvesters, seeding equipment, haying tools, compact tractors and grape harvesters.

Many of the tractors we sell are manufactured close by in New Holland’s state of the art plant in Basildon, Essex.

Our sales team regularly attend training workshops and seminars to keep up-to-date with advances in technology and to ensure that everybody is knowledgeable about the range of products available to help give you the best possible advice and service when it comes to selecting the right machine for the job.
