Great Plains enjoyed an excellent day at the Tillage event in the UK, where we showed the market entry version of the 3m X-Press and ST bar working for the first time.
It attracted a good deal of interest, as did the SLD cultivator and the Centurion drill, and dealers in the region are busy chasing up leads, as Graham Main, from Peacock & Binnington - which helped organise the stand – says the event has already been beneficial:
“We had a very positive show and we have some excellent enquiries and plenty of demonstrations to do. The event certainly lifted our team’s spirits. There was a lot of optimism among stand visitors and the whole day had a very positive feel.
“We have seen a big rise in enquiries for both the SLD and the Centurion drill and are busy demonstrating them both”.
David Holmes says visitor numbers at the event were encouraging: “We were surprised and pleased with the number of visitors we welcomed, given the delayed harvest and how many people might have decided to stay at home and continue seedbed preparations.
“Many visitors wanted to discuss technical issues such as soil restructuring, which has obviously been a priority for many farmers this autumn.
“We answered a lot of questions about combinations of restructuring legs and wings, and machines with that deeper loosening element – like the SLD, DTX and X-Press with ST Bar – are all in demand”.
