Farmers test drive Gendore’s latest

FARMERS travelled from across Gippsland to Gendore Tractors and Machinery’s Demo Day at Lardner Park last Wednesday.
The reputable dealership is Gippsland’s only New Holland dealership and sells the quality brand to customers from Melbourne through to Mallacoota.
Farmers, from dairy and beef producers to those in the horticultural industry, joined with agricultural contractors to meet with Gendore’s experienced staff and sales representatives to discuss the latest tractors and machinery, and test drive these first hand at the ideal Lardner Park site.
Gendore has dealerships in Leongatha and Tooradin, and a new dealership in Warragul.
Gendore not only stocks New Holland, but also machinery by Alpego, Fleming and BA Pumps and Sprayers.
General manager Tim Burgess said the day was ideal for showing farmers how the latest machinery can help improve productivity and profits.
“This is the first demo day we’ve had at Lardner. The beauty of it is that we left the machinery here after the field days and we just brought it out of the shed for today,” he said.
New Holland’s new T4.85 Dual Command tractor offers a horsepower range from 85 to 115, and is a good sized loader tractor.
New Holland has a released a telehandler capable of carrying heavier loads than most tractor front end loaders.
“Everyone in South Gippsland is buying big square bales and the telehandler can easily handle them, and get into the stack without getting into the shed,” Mr Burgess said.
“It’s more versatile than a standard front end loader.”
Mr Burgess was impressed with the Sigma 4 loader, a new hydraulic self levelling European loader that has 25 per cent more lift capacity than a mechanical loader.
Gendore backs up clients with after sales service on property.
