Major Owen Ltd, a groundscare dealership in North Wales, has announced that it will now support the agricultural market in its area, offering Kubota’s M-series tractors.
These additional models will include M6001 Utility, M6002 and M7003 models spanning 104-175hp, plus corresponding LK tractor-loader models and R0 pivot steer loaders.
“Major Owen’s business development continues to reinforce Kubota’s commitment to its customers and the markets,” explained Henry Bredin, general manager of Kubota (UK)’s agricultural and groundcare machinery division.
“This is a dealer that already has considerable M-series tractor experience, having delivered on sales, service and support with lower powered M4 and M5 models across a diverse customer base. Larger tractors are a natural and logical progression.”
The company, which is located in Penrhyndeudraeth on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park, has a long-standing relationship with the manufacturer, dating back to the 1980s. It employs a team of over 25 staff and is managed by Andy Jones.
“Over the last couple of years, we’ve seen a surge of interest from the farming community looking for more powerful tractors,” he explained. “So, we took the decision to expand the business to be able to provide the tractors, warranty, service and support that we need for this exciting new chapter for Major Owen.
“Many of our staff already have experience and knowledge of the smaller M-series tractors,” said Andy. “We’re in the process of increasing our sales, service and workshop teams to support new and existing customers, as we expand our portfolio with Kubota’s higher horsepower tractors.
“Our experience has shown how robust and reliable the smaller M-series tractors have been, and we’ve every confidence that the higher-powered models will deliver the same levels of Japanese reliability, while providing a competitive fixed cost of ownership for customers,” he said.
