Call it a boom, call it a renaissance, the agricultural industry in Australia – from east to west – is in fine fettle. Expectations of domestic and export demand are such that overall production value this year is forecast to reach $90 billion.
Yet the hangover from supply chain issues continues to affect many producers, not the least some of the major players in tractor and machinery manufacturing. That message came through loud and clear during recent field days in different parts of the country.
“We’re really healthy in terms of supply,” said Shaun Robinson, dealer principal of SLR Tractors & Machinery in Baldivis, WA,
“but we kept hearing that some of the bigger names are pushing delivery times out to 12 months.
“Our message is always the same – you’ll get a better tractor, at a better price, with better service and there’s no need to wait.”
Shaun is referring to Deutz-Fahr, the superbly engineered, German-designed manufacturer that continues to earn plaudits from farmers of all industries, such as dairy, horticulture and cropping.
The 6G Series keeps selling all over Australia for the demonstrable reasons of productivity, efficient and inexpensive operating, ease of use and uncomplicated maintenance.
It is an easy story to tell.
These 6G tractors have powerful Stage IIIA-compliant, 6 cylinder Deutz engines, in tandem with wet clutch power shuttle and RC shift transmission, which greatly aids towing and loader work for different applications, while the deluxe cab eases the burden of long hours.
Even better, the 6G is STOLL loader ready, is very useful for moving between farms with its 50 km/h road speed and boasts a whopping lift capacity.
“By way of utility tractors, these are hard to beat,” said Shaun. “In terms of value for money and the service we provide, this series is proving to be incredibly popular.”
Likewise, the release of the iconic Warrior. The bold design is striking enough, let alone the sheer versatility.
The new 6, 7, 8 and 9 Series tractors range between 171 – 336 hp, so there’s plenty of grunt, are finished in brilliant black, and there are precision farming systems and attachment points for an operator’s heaviest equipment combinations.
And, as Shaun’s customers keep saying, the Warrior is a genuine step up in terms of working environment.
“For many it’s far and away the best tractor they’ve ever had, supremely comfortable and quiet, and remarkably adaptable in terms of functionality around the farm.”
So, with stock on hand, there is simply no reason to wait.
