It's all about the grass
McHale and Krone are serious contenders in the silage machinery business. Both are family owned and manufacturers of premium equipment for the toughest of conditions. This week we have an exclusive announcement from the west of Ireland that will see McHale move a step closer to having the complete range of grass kit. Alistair Chambers reveals all.
Krone pioneered the self-propelled mower and has brought it to a new level. Peter Thomas Keaveney gets behind the wheel and under the hood of the latest edition. This is more than an update – it is a complete rebuild that sees all the main components re-engineered with some very clever changes to drive up output for the hungriest of harvesters.
Kverneland has another world first in its latest announcements ahead of Agritechnica. In the second part of our coverage of the company’s recent demo day, we take a look at the changes to its grass equipment and the exclusive new wrapping system on its continuous baler, the Fastbale.
In our vintage pages, we cover the recently held Ford 100 Fest at Crohane, Ballinascarthy, Co Cork, which was a resounding success. Model Ts and Ford TWs all attracted a great turnout at the home of Henry.
