The agreement ensures that the tractors assembled in Argo’s factories are correctly equipped and configured to work with Topcon products for different levels of precision guidance using a choice of solutions.
In Britain, the agreement has paved the way for a commercial partnership between McCormick distributor AgriArgo and LH Agro, Topcon’s authorised distributor for England, Scotland and Wales.
A similar partnership has been forged between AgriArgo and Topcon Ireland in Dublin and Topcon Northern Ireland, Toome, Co Antrim.
“The LH Agro team in Britain and Topcon’s precision agriculture specialists in Ireland have the technical know-how and service back-up resources that are essential for these very specialised products,” says managing director Ray Spinks of AgriArgo.
All McCormick X8 VT-Drive and premium-spec X7 tractors are now optionally available from the factory guidance-ready with the necessary hardware and electronic connections installed; this option will eventually be introduced for other McCormick models.
