Korean link-up plays to models' strengths

The new Landini 1 Series and McCormick X10 are the first fruits of a new original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement between Argo Tractors and Daedong Industrial Company.

The models were shipped from South Korea to the Argo base in Italy where they are kitted out with European-specification wheels, tyres and hitches.

According to Argo, which produces tractors from 35hp to 225hp at its manufacturing complex in Fabbrico near Milan, there is a good fit between the two companies.

A representative said: "In choosing Daedong as our partner for a range of compact and utility tractors spanning 22hp to 91hp, we have teamed up with a leading manufacturer in its sector."

"Argo Tractors is no stranger to OEM agreements with manufacturers - it already produces its own compact and track-laying tractors for two other makes."

Ray Spinks, AgriArgo UK general manager and sales director, said the new ranges will benefit from the after-sales support resources both Argo and Daedong.

"Apart from spares stocked by our local Landini and McCormick dealers, we have added the top 100 fastest-moving parts to the stock held at our Harworth base."
