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 the most 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.

Expanded Bobcat Telescopic Loader Range for Farming

The TL38.70HF Agri and TL34.65HF Agri models are part of an expanded choice of seven telescopic loader models for the farming market from Bobcat, covering maximum lifting capacities between 2.6 and 4.3 tonne with lifting heights from 6 to 8 m.

HF – High Flow technology is a key feature of the TL38.70HF and TL34.65HF models, offering outstanding hydraulic capabilities and performance with a class-leading 190 l/min load sensing pump and flow sharing distributor to combine all movements together.

To complete the picture, Bobcat now offers the entire range of telescopic loaders in three levels of finishing in the form of Agri equipment packages – Agri*, Agri** And Agri*** – to best meet farmers’ needs in terms of productivity and comfort.

Bobcat also offers a full line of telehandlers, including both rigid frame and rotary models for applications in construction, rental, recycling, waste and general industry, covering maximum lifting capacities between 2.6 and 5.0 tonne with lifting heights from 6 to 25 m.

Zero House Swing Advantage

The E35z is a new generation model in the popular 3.5 tonne machine class offering the additional benefits of Zero House Swing (ZHS). As a ZHS mini-excavator, the E35z offers easier transportability and more functionality than a Zero Tail Swing model, in the that the ZHS design fully protects the front upper structure corners within the swing circle. The R-Series range of five compact excavator models – the E26, E27z, E27, E34 and E35z – offers a best-in-class mix of high digging forces, superb stability and smooth controllability of working functions complemented by low weights for easy transportation.
