New tractor range launched

By Country News

Konigs held an open day on May 29 to officially launch the Landini tractor range in the Goulburn Valley.

The Shepparton company has recently taken on the brand, which has tractors for a wide range of farming practices.

‘‘We’ve just recently taken this franchise on for the Goulburn Valley area and it is a great tractor because it has such a wide range in specialised profiles for horticulture, viticulture and vegetable growing,’’ Konigs Shepparton owner Leo Schoonderbeek said.

Australia-wide Landini tractors distributor Inlon’s sales and marketing manager Gary Surman echoed Mr Schoonderbeek’s comments, and said the range suited the broad market needs in the area.

‘‘Konigs is the newly appointed dealer for Landini tractors, so they will sell specialist orchard tractors, vineyard tractors, high clearance vegetable tractors, general farm and dairy tractors and utility tractors,’’ Mr Surman said.

He said the open day provided him with a chance to meet with customers and understand the needs of local farmers.
