A NEW Scottish dealership franchise has been awarded to Nairn-based Hodge Plant by Same Deutz-Fahr.

SDF has made it a full line Deutz-Fahr dealer covering sales/service and parts across the full product range.

Depot sales manager, Graham Stuart, said the Deutz-Fahr equipment range covered everything from small groundcare machines, to agricultural tractors, right up to the high hp arable machines and combine harvesters.

It is a natural addition to the company’s growing portfolio of top brand franchises, which include Case Construction Machinery, Jensen Woodchippers, Dynapac compaction equipment, TGB ATVs and Kinshofer attachments.

“Deutz-Fahr is a global brand recognised for its build quality and longevity,” he said. “The wide product line up, coupled with the manufacturers down to earth and helpful approach made taking on the franchise an easy decision.

“We can now offer full sales and a 24/7 service and parts support from small compact groundcare tractors right up to the large arable machines and combine harvesters.

“We also plan to run a hire division to satisfy the growing demand for short to long term hire of machinery and we are actively looking into adding more quality agricultural machinery names to our line up to compliment the Deutz-Fahr brand,” he added.
