Kellands has sealed a deal with a new customer in Switzerland after its Agribuggy A280 self-propelled sprayer outperformed a rival hydrostatic machine following comprehensive field trials.
The machines were evaluated for their performance on steep slopes and wet ground, with the Agribuggy proving first choice thanks to its market-leading stability and unrivalled traction.
Other major factors in the customer’s decision to choose the Agribuggy included:
- Stable, low-centre of gravity design
- Light, manoeuvrable design
- Market-leading power-to-weight ratio
- High-visibility curved glass cab
- Superb build-quality
- And the full range of benefits delivered by Kellands mechanical drive technology
Kellands director of sales and marketing Keith Pashley said he was delighted with the sale and believed the machine’s exceptional all-terrain performance made it ideal for the Swiss market.
He explained: “The customer was very impressed with the performance of the Agribuggy in really challenging terrain – it offers unrivalled grip and a consistent and safe performance where other machines would not be able to operate at all.”
The deal was secured by Kellands’ European distribution partner Hendrik Pool of Pool-Agri and the Hans Kunz Landtechnik AG dealership in the Lucerne area.
Hendrik said the sale would help raise the company’s profile in Switzerland and beyond and would provide a springboard for future sales in the country.
