UK tractor sales 2019

how many years before they top that chart then ?
They're going to have to join the 170hp+ world if they want to do any good.
Their range of bigger tractors isn't available in Europe as far as I know.
I think their success will depend on whether they are desirable on the second hand market. They will need to be reliable beyond the initial warranty, have good parts availability and be easy to work on.


How much longer can Agri Argo survive on those numbers?
With figures like that it can’t be sustainable to have any sort of Uk headquarters/parts warehouse, go back 10 years ago the likes of rickerbys and Riverlea would have sold 100s of mccormicks each. Since they closed Doncaster and the known Doncaster tractors gone they have lost the customers that followed for generations and also lost most of their multi depot large dealers


Haven't Deere been doing the same for years?
Yes Probably, not criticising as such a unit sold is a unit sold at the end of the day after all and you can’t argue with the numbers just in the context of the forum it would be interesting to find out the actual number sold to AG applications

If you are now in a situation where cows are not cleaning out paddocks as well as they should be, leading to the development of steamy grass within the sward, here are some options.

Common options for rejuvenating swards include:

  1. Take a silage cut, probably into bales, remove the material and start again with the aftermath...
