ArmaTrac Makes History at the Livestock Event

ArmaTrac wrote a new page in British tractor history at the Livestock Event with the sale of their first ever tractor in the UK, to a Derbyshire dairy farming family, and the appointment of their first UK dealer, a Scottish farm contractor.

The Turkish manufactured ArmaTrac 504, powered by a Perkins 3-cylinder 50hp engine, was delivered direct from their stand in the Livestock Event Machinery Hall at the NEC, Birmingham to R & JA Bayley, Lady Leys Farm, near Swadlincote. The tractor was received by Jason Bayley and his sister Joanne Bill, who are both partners in the 480 cow family business.

Kevin Brewer, managing director of Broglio who represent ArmaTrac in the UK and Ireland, said: “The Livestock Event was a great success for ArmaTrac as our first sale quickly followed the appointment of our first UK dealer, Robert Clarkson of Eastfield Agricultural Services, Cameron Farm, near Airdrie, Lanarkshire. We also held meetings with potential dealers from England, Wales and Ireland and put several tractor orders in the book, pending future dealer recruitment.”

Eastfield Agricultural Services already provides tractor rental and second-hand tractor sales, service and repair, alongside a well-established farm contracting business and owner Robert Clarkson was actively looking for a new tractor franchise. “We looked at a few options and when I first saw ArmaTrac, at Agritechnica in Germany, I was very impressed,” said Robert.

“ArmaTrac tractors are simple and easy to maintain with few electronics, the driveline is well proven with Deutz and Perkins engines, ZF and Carraro transmissions, there is a good range that can do a bit of everything and the back-up is excellent. We have a good kick at the ball with ArmaTrac.”

Further dealer appointments are expected over the summer and opportunities are available in both the UK and Ireland.
