Farming and construction equipment distributors, McHale Plant Sales of Birdhill and its Zetor Sales Ireland affiliate will have a major presence at the forthcoming National Ploughing Championships which take place in New Ross later this month.

Following their appointment to represent Zetor tractors, the team at McHale Plant Sales see the event providing a ‘springboard for growth’ in the year ahead.

‘We will be showcasing the very latest Forterra HSX - a model which Zetor claims is the most powerful and best-equipped tractor in their portfolio and a market leader in terms of fuel consumption - alongside their 70hp-140hp Forterra and Proxima ranges’ said McHale Managing Director, Michael McHale.

Making its debut on the McHale stand will be the Italian-made Merlo range of telehandlers. The company has agreed with the manufacturer to cooperate in representing Merlo construction and agricultural telehandlers in the Republic of Ireland outside of Leinster. Other models in their expanding agricultural products portfolio which will feature on their stand include the Agrostroj, SIP and UNIA range of tractor attachments.

Noting that they traditionally hold the No.1 position in Ireland for Komatsu excavators and bulldozers generally, McHale will also display their WA320-6 wheel loader, a model they claim is particularly suitable for silage handling and other farm applications.

McHale Plant Sales and its Zetor Sales Ireland affiliate will be exhibiting jointly on Stand No. 158, Row F, Block 3.
