Attachment specialist Albutt Ltd are gearing up for their biggest show yet with a host of new products launching at LAMMA 2017.
It has been a period of growth for the Tewkesbury based firm which has seen them open a second factory at Evesham, a new paint and surface preparation facility go live, and the sales, design and accounts teams move into a new purpose built office facility.

John Deere is launching two new top of the range six-cylinder tractor models rated at 230 and 250hp (97/68 EC), designed to meet the needs of contractors and arable farmers. The 6230R and 6250R will complete the line-up of John Deere 6R Series tractors from summer 2017.
The 6230R and 6250R set new standards for transport, operator comfort and acceleration on the road. Thanks to an engine boost of 50hp with intelligent power management (IPM), the flagship 6250R tractor provides up to 300hp when required. With a very light vehicle weight of 9.3 tonnes, the 6250R delivers more power than any other tractor in this weight class, along with an unrivalled power density of 31kg/hp. The high maximum permissible weight of 15 tonnes also allows a 5.7 tonne payload, which means the tractor is able to transport heavier loads.

Mud soaked trails, impossibly steep inclines, freezing cold starts, John Deere Gators have proved themselves year after year as go-anywhere, dependable and reliable work vehicles. With more than 500,000 built, they’ve earned a reputation for durability and quality like no other. Unfortunately, their positive attributes have made Gators a popular target for professional and opportunistic thieves. Reacting to this, and following the success of CESAR in reducing tractor theft from John Deere customers and dealers, John Deere has announced that from the 1st November 2016, all XUV & HPX Gator utility vehicle models sold in the UK & Ireland will be factory fitted with the CESAR security marking and registration scheme.
SICK, the leading global manufacturer of sensors and motion control devices, has launched a range of smart inclination sensors designed to provide precise, non-contact and wear-free measurement of inclination angles in agricultural and heavy construction vehicles.
SICK’s TMS/TMM sensors use MEMS (Micro-Electromechanical Systems) technology to measure the inclination, so they achieve a high level of precision combined with a high level or reliability and robustness.
Dewulf, specialist in harvesting technology for potatoes and carrots, have introduced the Kwatro Xtreme as a solution for growers who plant in 4 x 90 cm rows or 1800 mm beds.
The Kwatro Xtreme harvesting unit is positioned in front of the tracks so the ridges remain intact. The 900 mm wide tracks and the optional super-wide rear wheel (Mitas 1250 / 50R32) ensure minimum soil compaction so harvesting can continue even in extremely wet conditions. The harvesting unit is equipped with automatic depth control based on two skids (ADC), separate harvesting shares and large, hydraulically driven cutting discs. The harvesting unit is supported by a robust system of support rollers and automatic pressure control (APC). With the skids positioned between the baulks, the harvester automatically follows the rows (DAS).
