Adare Machinery at the National Ploughing Championships 2016

Adare Machinery is delighted to announce that we will have our biggest stand ever at the 2016 National Ploughing Championships taking place in Screggan, Tullamore, Co Offaly from 20-22 September 2016. Throughout the three days, we will be showing a wide array of Doosan and Bobcat equipment at our stand on Block 3 | Row 15 | Stand 346

Attended by over 281,000 visitors in 2015, last year’s show was host to our biggest ever stand, but the stand for the 2016 show promises to be even bigger and busier, with several new Doosan and Bobcat products being shown for the first time in Ireland, including the new Doosan Stage IV compliant DX140LCR-5 15 tonne reduced tail swing crawler excavator and the Bobcat T450 compact tracked loader.


The new Doosan DX140LCR-5 excavator offers increased performance, durability and fuel efficiency, with a focus on greater power, robustness and versatility. Power is provided by the Perkins 1204F engine, which combines reduced fuel consumption with the power and torque of larger engines with a smaller displacement. The new Perkins 1204F engine provides a 6% increase in power with an output of 85.9 kW (115.3 HP) at 2000 rpm and a 3% increase in torque. Swing torque has also been boosted by 28%. Fuel consumption has been lowered by up to 10% compared to the previous generation machine. As well as the Stage IV engine, new systems and functions have been incorporated to achieve this significant result.

Filling the gap in the range between the S100 and the 500 series models the new Bobcat S450 compact skid steer loader offers a massive increase in power combined with hydraulic and hydrostatic efficiency improvements that translate into significantly increased productivity. Manufactured at the Bobcat plant in Dobris in the Czech Republic, the S450 is powered by the Kubota V2203-M-DI-E2B-BC-3 Engine which produces 49 HP. Equipped with radial lift boom arms, the rated operating capacity of the S450 is 608kg while the operating weight is 2,365kg. Thanks to its compact dimensions and lower weight, the S450 is easy to transport on a trailer towed by a light truck, 4 x 4, or all-terrain vehicle.

We are looking forward to meeting all our customers at the event and invite everyone to call and say hello to the Adare Machinery stand. BLOCK 3 | ROW 15 | STAND 346
