Farmhand are bringing machines to the FTMTA Show, of
which seven have never been displayed in Ireland. The Krone
self-propelled mower has been redesigned from the
ground up following the success of the BigM

HP Liebherr engine with a . m
cutting width. "It is a big machine to display inside but it was at
the centre of many bigger silage contractor's operations last year
and is getting rave reviews," said sales director David Borland.
The new Amazone Combidisc drill/harrow combination will
also be on display, which the company states allows for a more
versatile drilling combination. It's a m compact disc harrow
that's designed to work alone or with a drill mounted on top with
the added benefit of reducing fuel consumption. This allows for
a more versatile machine with a high work rate. "Along with the
Combidisc we also have the Amazone Cayros plough and new
ZAV spreader which is proving a huge hit with Irish grass and
tillage farmers." said marketing director Stephen Scrivener.
The Quicke simulator will be on the Farmhand stand which
people might recognise from Agritechnica "We are delighted to
have the full Quicke simulator. It gives an insight into how the
electric joystick and new Q companion weigh system work as well
as o ering an interactive tractor simulator experience" said Stephen.
Fastparts, the fast-moving parts division of Farmhand will have
a display of the all new Quicke XL implement range. These
implements have been designed for the most demanding
telehandler/ wheel loader users. "The quality of these implements
is unparalleled. People are going to be seriously impressed by how
