New £50,000 tractor stolen

IRISH New Holland dealer P J Callan is appealing for help in recovering a new £50,000 tractor it rented out.

The New Holland 8770 4WD super steer tractor, serial number 00D413037 and engine number VH698625, was due to be returned to the Co Louth dealer on Mar 5. Subsequent investigation showed that the name and address given by the person who hired the machine were false.

The tractor, unregistered and with 125 hours, was taken without the standard fittings of front weights and weight carrier. Anyone with any information should ring Mr Callan on 003541-53555. &#42
