At this week’s LAMMA show, the UK’s largest farm machinery show, New Holland showcased two vintage Fordson tractors alongside its latest tractor models.
This display formed part of a year of celebrations in association with the club Blue Force, which began with a book launch at New Holland’s Basildon factory and showroom in the UK on January 11.
The 528-page book titled, ‘100 years of Fordson, Ford and New Holland Tractors 1917-2017’ was published by Blue Force and includes over 1,270 colour photographs as well as details of models produced since 1917.
New Holland’s Marketing Manager James Ashworth said: “Our world class manufacturing sites produce quality tractors for a global market, including the site at Basilson, where we make T6 and T7 tractors for farmers in the UK, Ireland and more than 120 countries all over the world.
“We are delighted to showcase our history and thank Blue Force members for loaning two fine vintage tractors for our stand.
“We look forward to supporting Blue Force with their activities throughout the year,”
The next celebratory event will see two Blue Force members, embarking on a two-month-long ‘Coastline Tractor Challenge’ on April 13.
The challenge will see the men use two New Holland T6 tractors to visit most of the coastline of England, Wales, Scotland and part of Ireland.
