Adare Machinery, the Limerick-based Doosan and Bobcat dealer, will have the company’s largest ever stand at this year’s National Ploughing Championships, being held at Ballintrane, Fenagh in County Carlow, Ireland from 17-19 September 2019. This is the 88th National Ploughing Championships and it will feature an impressive array of new Doosan and Bobcat products to be shown by Adare. 

The National Ploughing Championships takes place each year in the month of September. Since its inception in 1931, the show has grown in size, year on year. It involves over 1700 exhibitors and more than 240,000 visitors every year.

William Cuddy, sales manager at Adare Machinery, said: “We are very proud to have our biggest stand to date at the Ploughing Show and to be representatives for the Doosan and Bobcat brands at this important event. We are hoping for a very strong turnout with the growth in the Irish market and to be able to win a lot of new business at the show.”      

The highlight of the stand display from Doosan, which also includes the 14 tonne DX140LCR-5 crawler excavator, will be the first showing at the Ploughing show of the new DL280-5 wheel loader, designed specifically for agricultural applications. Adare will also be showing the Bobcat TL38.70HF Agri and TL34.65HF Agri telescopic loaders for the first time at the event. Part of a strong display of new Bobcat equipment will be the E35z, also being shown for the first time at the exhibition, part of the R-Series range of mini-excavators launched by Bobcat in 2018.  

The DL280-5 is the latest development in the high performance Doosan wheel loader range, which comprises 13 models – covering operating weights from 12 to 36 tonne. The DL280-5 offers high performance and high productivity with unbeatable breakout force, tipping load and enhanced output for all types of work around the farm, including feed management and work on silage and manure clamps. The DL280-5 can be equipped with a variety of attachments such as foldable silage forks and grabs, making it a very versatile and hard working machine for multiple jobs in agriculture.
