Bord na Móna buys John Deere tractors from TFM

Templetuohy Farm Machinery and John Deere have secured a major five year fleet deal with Bord na Móna for the sale of 245 tractors, after an extensive tender process last summer.

The five year deal will see 133 machines being delivered in 2010 and the remaining 112 over the following four years to 2014. A total of 189 6830 Standard 140hp tractors and 56 new 5070M 70hp tractors will be supplied by TFM, all on dual wheels, for use in the Bord’s peat harvesting operations.

This is both the dealer’s and John Deere’s biggest ever deal with Bord Na Móna, which has been hiring a number of John Deere tractors for the past five years.

“The Bord usually keeps its tractors for a long time, so when the decision was made to buy rather than hire, the Bord’s group procurement manager Declan McDonnell was particularly looking for reliable and durable machines,” says TFM’s dealer principal Jimmy Butler.

“From previous experience, the Bord appreciated the performance and reliability of John Deere tractors, and knew that they had a proven ability to work in the harsh peat bog environment. We are delighted to have won the contract, and look forward to working closely with the Bord to deliver and service their new tractors over the next five years.”
