If no new JD franchise set up nearest dealer will be 90 miles away from our area.
HRN sold a lot of JD's around here.

Aren't HRN and Netherton tractors owned by the same family anyway??

Looks like NH are going into the huge areas in Ireland too with Shaws rumoured to be buying over Lyons and Burton according to the Journal.

Shaws are sound and good back up and all but that take over is not good. A few years ago there was perry's in athy and kilkenny, enniscorthy motor and lyons and Burton and Shaws but now just 1. Very poor for any sort of competition.

Its a pity i think seems the day of a dearler having one branch and servicing his local area are to be a thing of the past the days of going into the stores or the sale team an being on first name terms with them will surely go too

From what i heard lads dont like being told what their going to buy they like to decide themselves

A bit like a local MF dealer never going out to sell a tractor ?

People come in to him , to buy a tractor .

The most of his buyers , Grandad bought a Fergy 20 , and we've never had another breed of tractor on the farm.

More lads being told that they were buying certain model and spec and how much to write a cheque for and not being given options to spec them out themselves

Won't be popular for saying it but most of the bigger franchise dealers are only really interested in those who are buying newer tractors and changing frequently.

How often do you see older tractors in these yards now as in >15 years old, very seldom no matter how clean they are.

I don't see how these big mergers are good business for anyway to be honest and in particular all the moving and shaking with dealerships in the UK.

You don't move quick enough nash they move them on fairly rapid for small money

You could always deal with William Foster in Wicklow.
