William Adams Ag Shepparton is the new dealer of McHale hay and silage machinery after agreeing on a deal to stock the Irish company’s product.
The agreement came about after the Shepparton business approached the Australian importer of McHale products, PFG Australia.
‘‘It started by us approaching them. We distribute Vicon hay machinery and PFG (PFG Australia) are importers of Vicon products. It also suited two different markets,’’ William Adams Ag Shepparton branch manager Christian Barnett said.
The two markets Mr Barnett referred to was to complement the Vicon products they have in stock as well as to continue their relationship with PFG Australia.
‘‘PFG are importers of hay tools, wrappers and balers and they have been pretty keen. It has taken a few years to get the franchise across, but we are rapt to get hold of it. Our other William Adams branches have been distributing McHale products for three years, so it was inevitable that the Shepparton branch would get hold of it (at some stage),’’ he said.
Mr Barnett said the McHale products were a popular choice throughout the Goulburn Valley.
‘‘They produce a very top-end product. They produce a proven high-end baler, which produces high-quantity bales without many repairs or maintenance needed. It is also suitable for wet, high-density silage bales.
‘‘There are a lot of McHale operators in the area and we are rapt that we can support it,’’ Mr Barnett said.
Keeping clients satisfied, the Shepparton branch will stock a wide range of silage equipment.
‘‘We have the McHale V640 and V660 balers, a couple of different silage wrappers and a new silage bale cutter as well.
‘‘William Adams is also the sole distributor of Fella hay tools.’’
