To a Successful first year at Carryduff!
Alan Milne Tractors will host an Open Week at their premises on the outskirts of Carryduff, from Monday through to Saturday next week (14th-19th 2011), with special late night opening on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings until 10pm.
The Open Week will mark the first anniversary of the opening of the Carryduff branch of the Newry-based company, following the acquisition of the agricultural division of Cyril Johnston and Co. Ltd. Alan Milne's team have had a busy year adapting their new premises and extending the choice of equipment and facilities including new tractors and machinery, parts and stores department and a comprehensive service and back-up support for customers.
"We have been happy with the way the first year at Carryduff has gone" Alan Milne told FarmWeek. "We have sold 65 new Massey Ferguson tractors as well as five Schaffer telehandlers. Other equipment ranges have also been in good demand including the Dieci loaders which now come with a three-year warranty.
"We found that our core business of supplying the construction industry from our Newry premises was shrinking with the fall-off in construction work but Carryduff has helped us to ride through the hard times. Machinery dealers must be adaptable and be prepared to meet what the market demands."
As we approach the busy spring workload period on farms this is an opportunity for farmers to reassess their machinery requirements and Alan Milne will be keen to ensure that any purchases are backed up with a strong customer support service. This will include service vans on the road to deal with routine servicing and emergency breakdown cover, including 24-hour callout availablility during peak working periods such as silage harvesting.
During the Open Week all tractors and machinery will be on view indoors in either showrooms or a marquee, allowing farmers and contractors to inspect equipment away from the winter elements. There will be a host of special offers in the parts department and stores, as well as refreshments available to visitors. Colin McKee has been put in charge of the parts department at Carryduff and through concentrated effort has pushed the parts' sales up by 37 per cent year on year.
Representatives of finance companies and manufacturers will be on site to assist with enquiries.
Alan Milne had built up a commendable reputation at his Newry base where he supplies Fendt tractors, dDieci loaders and a number of other marques including Takeuchi mini diggers and San Marco self erecting cranes.
In taking on the Cyril Johnston portfolio he has considerably strengthened the range available as he has acquiried the Massey Ferguson dealership for Counties Down and Armagh, as well as dealerships for other major franchises such as Kverneland, Taarup, Vicon, Bomford, Permastore and Schaeffer loaders.
All of these ranges will be on show at next week's open days along with an impressive model from the high horsepower Challenger tractor range. Alan Milne has added Challenger to his portfolio as dealer for half of Ireland and has recently sold the first model to a farm near Dublin.
There will be special entertainment on the Wednesday evening of the Open Week when the 'Bard of Armagh' will be telling some of his tales. A warm welcome awaits all potential customers wishing to see the full range available from Alan Milne Tractors.
C Series Challengers comfort, control and convenience!
THE new C Series Challengers, which were first seen in the UK at last years Cereals Event, head up the Challenger range which is now available through Alan Milne Tractors of Carryduff. These feature a host of innovative features to further improve operator comfort and control with climate control now standard in the spacious cab.
These include the new TMC II (Tractor Management Centre II) operating console, along with a new, clear and easy to use dashboard that displays key operating information.
Challengers industry-leading TMC Armrest with integral Display is now even easier to use with its new large (7in/178mm) colour screen, which now also offers full ISOBus control of implements.
The TMC Display also provides all the tractor performance management, setting and operation functions with the One Touch Headland Management sequence now even more comprehensive and easier to use. One Touch allows operators to store 35 functions for six different machines, and replay these at the touch of a button. This sequence can now be programmed and edited on the screen, without the need to record the entire sequence again.
The latest high output hydraulic system is now equipped with fingertip switches, mounted at the front of the TMC Armrest and provides even finer control of flowrate and timing for precise implement operation.
The TopCon System 150 is now available for fitting to Challenger tractors, providing integrated auto-steer, assisted steering and guidance. An RS232 socket allows variable rate controllers to be connected into the GPS signal and coverage maps can be downloaded via a USB port.
