Run by Tony and Fiona Blackburn at Newton Reigny near Penrith, Newton Trailer Centre is already part of the Argo Tractors dealer network, having supplied Landini products for several years.
But a review of the tractor market in the county has resulted in the business switching to Argo’s McCormick range. “We’ll continue to wholeheartedly support our Landini customers with parts, servicing and anything else they need,” says Mr Blackburn. “But there are more McCormick users across the county who need this support and we’re now able to provide it.”
Tony Blackburn’s Newton Trailer Centre at Newton Reigny near Penrith, is the new sales, parts and service dealer for McCormick tractors throughout Cumbria.
Mr Blackburn adds that individual tractor makes represent different things to different people. “Although there is nothing at all wrong with the Landini products, I think McCormick is better known and perhaps has a more modern image in a lot of people’s minds, which gives them added confidence to run the tractors.”
The Newton Trailers territory extends from the coast beyond the M6 to the Penine hills, southwards into north Lancashire bordering McCormick dealership Charnleys, and northwards beyond Carlisle, where the territory of Dumfries-based TH Engineering begins.
