JOHN DEEREs telehandler range has been updated with the introduction of three new models – the compact, 2m wide 92hp 4350, and the 100hp 4450 and 4550 models.

The models first appeared as Matbros TS230, TS270 and TS290 at last years Royal Show and, although built at Matbros Northern Ireland factory, feature Deeres low emission 4.5-litre PowerTech engine and the companys familiar green and yellow livery.

Options include a four-junction joystick, full powershift transmission and steering mode wheel alignment system.

Prices extend to £34,355 for the range-topping, joystick-equipped 4550 model.
