JANUARY 2019
Wicklow born Sean Lennon is heading into 2019 with a
busy schedule and a positive outlook for the company's
future, another year of product development on the
cards: "In 2018 we launched the Dynamic Command in a
T6, 4-cylinder and early in 2019 we bring the 6-cylinder
version to market. It's a launch that Irish dealers and
customers have been anticipating so we are expecting a
good response. The first chance to view the new machines
will be at the FTMTA Machinery Show at Punchestown, in
February. At the same time we started the celebration of
100 years of Fiat Tractors last November we did a special
edition for the occasion and will also launch that at the
upcoming FTMTA Show. A special edition of Terracotta
tractors for all Fiat loyalists will be on display. We are also
bringing the New Holland implement line-up along and
that will all be available for sale in the coming months.
That's all part of the Kongskilde acquisition that we
completed recently. On the telehandler side we did an
upgrade including a new transmission and relaunched
the entire offering. It now has a yellow livery and is also
expected to be available before March."
New technologies
The Wicklow man outlines some interesting technological
developments: "On the technology side CNH have
introduced our PLM RTK network in Ireland last year. We
have a range of baystations situated around the country,
with almost universal coverage in Leinster and Munster.
That services customers using autoguidance, variable rate
spreading and precision farming technologies. We will be
able to offer a 2.5cm accuracy with this technology. That's
a first for the industry in Ireland."
"CNH places great emphasis in advancing technology to
drive efficiency and productivity on farms. Then there are
Matt O'Kee e talks to Sean Lennon, Head of Tractor and Telehandler Management with CNH
