AgroCentre is again in the fields!

Shatilovo Agricultural Research Station has hosted Oryol Field Day, bringing together the leading agricultural producers of the region, representatives of public authorities, plant breeders, scientists and large suppliers of farm machinery.

AgroCentre is a regular participant of Oryol Field Day trade show. This year, the company has traditionally presented one of the most interesting displays at the event.

The dealer showcased the JCB 175 skid steer loader for the first time. The machine incorporates a unique single-sided reinforced high tensile strength steel boom ensuring improved load retention. The loader's rated operating capacity is 794kg, it features Perkins engine which combines high torque and low fuel consumption.

'The JCB 175 skid steer loader has great serviceability', says Evgeniy Ankudinov, Head of Oryol Branch of AgroCentreLiski. 'It has an extended maintenance period and thanks to the tilting cab offers easy servicing, which results in reduced downtime.'

Local farmers liked the compact track loader so much that AgroCentre passed the machine into their good hands at the end of the trade show.

'One of our farms needs a compact, manoeuvrable and powerful loader', says Roman Sashchenko, Head of KDV Group Livestock Farming Development Division. 'Our partners from AgroCentre recommended the JCB 175 and offered us favourable terms and conditions. It did not take us long to consider the purchase, and right after the trade show the machine was on our farm delivering impressive performance. In autumn, AgroCentre will supply our enterprise with two more wheel loaders.'

AgroCentre also presented the time-tested machines, namely the Massey Fergusson 6713 mid-range tractor, Kverneland forage equipment, the JCB 531-70 telehandler, the Horsch 6HD disc harrow and Zaffrani headers.

'Oryol Field Day is an important event for AgroCentre', summarises Evgeniy Ankudinov. 'It is a place where we can meet our clients, get to know their demands, discuss the challenges they encounter and suggest solutions to complicated problems. So, such a trade show should flourish and bring farmers and machinery suppliers together.'
