IAM set for Screggan
Kilkenny based machinery importer and distributor, IAM
Agricultural Machinery will be displaying their latest
machinery o erings at this year's National Ploughing
Championships.
Over the three-day event, IAM will have industry experts
on hand from each of their franchises to talk to potential
customers and answer any technical questions they may
have. Brands on show include Strautmann, Hardi, Rabe
Machinery, Bomford Turner and Gregoire Besson with the
latest products and innovations from each on display.
The fl agship of the Strautmann Diet feeder range, the self-
propelled Verti-Mix SF 2002 (22m
3
) will take centre stage
on the stand commemorating the fi rst new Verti-Mix SF
2002 to be sold in Ireland. According to a spokesperson,
the Verti-Mix SF diet feeder costs less to mix rations and
feed animals on a daily basis while also providing a superior
level of mix consistency.
"The main saving benefi t comes from dispensing with the
need for a loader or loader/tractor, tractor, and trailed
feeder wagon by replacing it with a self-propelled unit.
Furthermore, a 25-30 per cent saving in feeding time is
commonly achieved from the reduced travelling back and
forth to the clamp as the SF2002 is able to collect exactly
what is required in one go. The fast mixing action of the
Vario2 auger, coupled with the fact that all the silage is
milled as it is collected, also speeds up the mixing process."
On the Strautmann Forage Wagon front the new Giga
Vitesse 3602 will be making its Irish debut ahead of the
2019 silage season.
Hardi will be represented by the new Navigator Delta Force
with 24m booms which was launched earlier this year at
a Hardi Crop Care day in Kilkenny in April. "This machine
marks the start of a new boom series which fulfi ls the
future farming demands for fl exibility in boom widths, high
speed performance, narrow transport width and superior
robustness," added the spokesperson.
