Machinery news: the push for full-line manufacturers continues
This week, Dermot Forristal from Teagasc explores spraying technology, in keeping with the theme from SIMA of farming 10 years from now. Manufacturers are developing precise control of all spraying application systems, from GPS control to switching nozzle bodies.
It’s not just hybrid cars that are making an impact – we look at the latest hybrid-powered Komatsu excavator at work here in Ireland. In motoring, it’s all about finance, with more options than ever to drive away the new car. We look at PCP v HP when it comes to driving a new Skoda Superb.
This week has also seen AGCO announce that it intends to take over the Lely farm machinery business. The big push by the major manufacturers to offer the full line-up of machines is more evident than ever and well on the way. The logic might be that it will make the Isobus era easier for all.
