This year’s LAMMA show takes place at the Newark Showground on 16 and 17 January. Andy Collings highlights some of the new products that will be on display.
A record number of companies are expected to exhibit at LAMMA 2008. In fact the organisers have announced that, with 470 exhibitors signed up, the show is officially full. It’s a situation that many other agricultural shows would be envious of.
While the every-other-year Agritechnica event in Germany is becoming the show of choice for those wanting to see the latest European launches, for most UK farmers LAMMA provides the first opportunity to see new introductions in the flesh.
The new T6000 Range Command and Power Command tractors, which replace the TM Series, will be on show.
This three-model range spans a power band of 125hp to 150hp and offers a choice of transmissions. A 50kph or 40kph 19 x 6 Eco transmission is available in both Range Command and Power Command and there is also a 29 x 12 creep speed box.
A gearshift management system includes an auto change mode to suit conditions in the field and on the road. Such sophistication also extends to pto engagement – the speed of which is maintained irrespective of changes in forward speed.
