An ATV shredder in action

Co Antrim manufacturers Quad-X and Blaney Agri are taking to the road this April on a nationwide demo tour, on a scale never seen before.

This demonstration event will see over 20 machines on display with various live machinery demonstrations including feeding, bedding, shredding, hedgecutting, weed sensing and swathing. Be the first to witness some new unseen products in action.

This is a unique opportunity to see 100% innovative Irish machinery in action, with the manufacturers and engineers on hand to explain more and answer any queries. Quad-X offer an extensive range of ATV equipment while Blaney Agri design and manufacture innovative tractor machinery. Grants are available on some of these machines – come and hear if you qualify.

This machinery is designed and developed in consultation with farmers and contractors. With an ethos of continual improvement the R&D engineers are always keen to get your feedback.

If you are concerned about land eligibility or have problems with overgrown vegetation, come and see the Quad-X and Blaney Ari machines tackle rush and scrub, including the acclaimed power shredder mowers. The all new Wipeout 2 weed wiper models will be in action, showing off their second generation patented technology credentials – all designed to help you to save up to 92% in chemical use while giving a kill rate of up to 100% in one pass, and saving valuable clover.

With winter just behind us, you will be pleased that indoor feeding and bedding are almost over for another season. But if you remember all too well the hassle involved in forking and graping out round bale silage, then Blaney Agri are excited to demo three round bale feeding machines to help make feeding an easy chore done in seconds.

Blaney Agri are pleased to be showcasing their BA93 hedgecutter on the demo tour, incorporating power shredding technology for outstanding performance and a tidy finish.

With Spring now upon us, now is the time to focus on grass and maximising it’s potential. Blaney Agri are pleased to be able to demonstrate the one pass aerator system – a grass spiker, tined harrow and overseeder all in one. Reclaim your pastures and boost grass growth.

With thoughts of the first cut of silage not too far away, now is the time to pray for good weather or to invest in a machine to maximise drying in the shortest of weather windows. The Blaney Agri SwathAir is sure to attract attention as it travels around Ireland, with the promise of better silage for farmers.

All the action is due to start at 2pm each day, so make your way to the closest demo location in Co Cavan, Co Down, Co Tyrone and Co Antrim.
