The participants of the event demonstrated great interest in the novelties from John Deere: 6175M and 6195M series tractors, 8R and 8RT series tractors and wheeled and tracked 9 Series machines. As for harvesting equipment, special attention was paid to John Deere S and T Series tractors.

‘We have presented John Deere S690, which is currently the most powerful machine among the John Deere rotary combines’, says Alexander Kirichenko, Sales Manager of EkoNiva-Chernozemye. ‘Its specifications are impressive: the operating volume is 135 l, maximum engine capacity is 614 hp, grain tank capacity - 14 100 litres, and the unloading speed is 135 l per second.’

The John Deere T660 and T670 series Combines and self-propelled forage harvesters also attracted the participants’ attention.

The demonstration of John Deere F450E baler was the highlight of the presentation for the representatives of small farms. The machine has fixed bale chambers, so it is capable of forming high-density bales 1.2 m or 1.5 m in diameter.

Technical characteristics of Vaderstad Tempo planters and JCB 5 Series Telehandlers were also discussed at the presentation. Vaderstad Tempo planters are capable of handling up to 500 ha per day at an average speed of 20 km/h.

By the way, farmers have an opportunity to take advantage of the special offer from JCB. Telehandlers are available at 0% interest rate with a minimum down payment. All front loaders can be purchased at 3.99% and mini loaders at 0% in installments.

In addition, the attendees of the event learned about financing programs — John Deere Financial and JCB Finance, — which make the acquisition of equipment more affordable.
