Krone Big Packs in sporting green

DEERE and Company will sell Krone Big Pack medium square balers, sporting green/yellow livery, through John Deeres European dealer network in 1996.

Coming just three months after the announcement of a similar deal with Matbro, this latest agreement represents John Deeres next stage in a policy to offer its dealers a full product line-up.

Krone will build both Big Pack 120-80 and 80-80 models for John Deere at its Spelle factory in Germany, but will also continue to sell the balers under the Krone label through existing channels.

Deere-badged versions of the Big Pack are due to make their first public appearance at Germanys Agritechnica Show in Hanover in November, but UK farmers are unlikely to see the machines until the New Year. &#42
