TRACTOR users got to test the latest green machines from Germany with a ‘try a tractor’ day in Grove.

East Challow-based agricultural sales company LJ & CA Cannings hosted the day, letting customers test out their newest machines from manufacturers Deutz-Fahr.

More than 150 people came to the Grove Technology Park to have a go at driving them.

Sales representative James Cannings said: “We invited all of our customers down to have a go on the new tractors.

“More than 150 people came, and it went down very, very well.”

He added: “They got to drive a few times up and down the airfield, and we had other machinery – fertiliser spinners and drills and so on – on display for those who were waiting to get on the tractor.

“They were really, really impressed. It was supposed to close at 6pm, and I was still there with customers at 8pm.”

Following on from the day’s success, the company plans to hold similar events in the future.

Mr Cannings said: “I think we will do it again.”
