Tom Shaw Farm Machinery Appointed Deutz-Fahr Dealer

This well-established Birr, Co. Offaly dealership is now offering the full range of machines from the highly regarded tractor manufacturer Deutz-Fahr.

The Tom Shaw Farm Machinery business has taken another positive step forward thanks to recently being awarded the Deutz-Fahr franchise. Based in Dromoyle, Birr, Co. Offaly, Tom, Violet and their staff already run a successful SAME tractor dealership and have customers who have remained loyal to them since they started trading way back in 1988.

The addition of the Deutz-Fahr brand is aimed at attracting new business from farmers and contractors who need higher-horsepower tractors.

"The SAME tractor range is a very popular brand that offers our customers the sort of tractors they want, along with reliability that is the envy of the business," Tom says. "However, in recent years, we've noticed an additional demand for more powerful tractors - those in the 150hp-plus range - and it is the Deutz-Fahr brand that these customers ask for." Tom, like his customers, recognises that Deutz-Fahr is now regarded as being the premium brand when it comes to higher-horsepower tractors - the range extends through to 270hp, with power provided by electronically managed Deutz engines.

"The build and styling is tremendous," he says. "And I think that when it comes to operator comfort, Deutz-Fahr is in a league of its own." He adds that the latest model to join the Deutz-Fahr range - the M-Series with its 132-190hp power span - is ideally placed to meet the requirements of his higher-horsepower customers.

"These Tier III, six-cylinder Deutz-powered tractors, with their 40x40 four-speed powershift transmissions and 9,200kg hydraulic rear linkage lift capacity are awesome machines that just ooze power and reliability," Tom commented. SAME tractors will clearly continue to serve Tom Shaw Farm Machinery's customers well - their reputation for hard work and trouble-free longevity is now well established but now, for this company, there's a new kid on the block. And it goes by the name of Deutz-Fahr.
