THIS YEAR'S Tractor World Scotland Show on March 23 and 24 promises to 'take the event to a new level', now it has the use of the Highland Hall at the Royal Highland Centre.

Adding the Highland Hall doubles the indoor floor space of last year’s tractor show, and gives Pentland Livestock Ltd the use of the adjoining Central Hall in its entirety for the busy Saturday auction.

Themes for Tractor World Scotland 2019 include 80 years of David Brown tractor production, narrow (berry, vineyard and hop garden) tractors and implements, tractors manufactured in France and a celebration of the tractor and plough through the ages – with an impressive County tractor and push-pull plough combination already booked in.

These themes will be well supported by the strong club presence at the show, which includes The Ayrshire Vintage Tractor and Machinery Club, Blue Force, DMR Machinery Club, Ferguson Club, Ford and Fordson Association, Friends of Ferguson Heritage, International Harvester Club of Great Britain, International Harvester Heritage Association, Nuffield and Leyland Tractor Club, Scottish County Tractor Club, Scottish Tractor Pullers Club and Vintage Horticultural and Garden Machinery Club.

As well as examples of the major tractor marques and models that will be present, expect displays of horticultural and garden machinery, models and dioramas, stationary engines and classic commercials present on both days of the show, with a drive-in day on the Sunday for the chance to see even more classic trucks and vans.

Local John Deere dealer Netherton Tractors Ltd will be in attendance and Case IH and New Holland are expected to have a presence too.
