Hamilton Tractors celebrates a century of tractor sales


Hamilton Tractors who has supplied 100 tractors since taking on the Landini and McCormick franchises is celebrating this landmark with an Open Day on Wednesday April 6th at its Carnwath premises in Lanarkshire.

Jan and David Walkinshaw have supplied 100 tractors since taking on the McCormick franchise and were presented with a plaque commemorating the achievement.

Most of the tractors have been bought by farmers and agricultural contractors but the milestone machine – a 143hp McCormick X6.460L – is operated by civil engineering firm Ward Plant Group and is currently working on the A9 upgrade near Aviemore.

“Hamilton Tractors has proved to be a good choice for our dealership in the area,” says Bob Bain, area sales manager for Scotland at distributor AgriArgo UK. “David Walkinshaw is an enthusiastic salesman and he is backed by parts and service people who know how to look after his customers.”

The Hamilton Tractors business was bought by Jan and David Walkinshaw towards the end of 2008, selling just farm machinery at first before being awarded the McCormick franchise for Lanarkshire and Midlothian.

Examples of all leading models in the range will be on display at the Hamilton Tractors Open Day on along with machines from the dealership’s equipment franchises, which include Abbey slurry tankers and feeders, Fleming trailers, Krone and McHale grass harvesting machinery, and Quicke and Twose loaders and attachments. In addition to all-day refreshments, farmers and contractors visiting the event will enjoy a 10% discount on all parts orders and other special offers.
