Grassland and tillage manufacturer McConnell has branched out into the sprayer market by rebranding the lightweight Kellands Agribuggy in its yellow and black livery.

The Alamo group, which owns both companies, claimed one of the main reasons for the change is to tap into the vast UK dealer network McConnell has created.

No changes have taken place with the running gear of the UK-built Agribuggy – it even has the same A280 model number on the door from the Kellands days.

However, if you can’t stand the colour change, Kellands will continue to sell the Agribuggy in its traditional red clothes, along with their Multidrive machines.

The first McConnell coloured units will be available at the start of next year, with a full UK launch at Lamma 2018.
