The only late-1940s Farmall Super A in the country?

A vintage Farmall Super A from the late 1940s will be on display at McAree Engineering’s stand at this year’s National Ploughing Championships.

The vehicle, which they believe is the only one in Ireland, has been restored by Benny McCabe from County Monaghan.

McAree will exhibit its full range of V-Mac silos on their stand – with single and split silos along with legged, offset, and enclosed options available to check out.

This year, the firm will also has one of its feeder wagon storage solutions – their enclosed silo with feeder wagon augur fitted to it.  Their very popular tote bins will also be on display.

The feed silos are constructed using Magizinc, a modern steel that provides high levels of protection against corrosion and with exclusive interlocked forming, boast superior strength.

Suitable for the agricultural, biomass, wastewater treatment and plastics industries – V-Mac silos are available in a range of styles and formats.

This innovative technology is solar-powered, with a lid-fitted silo monitor, is easy to install and trouble-free.

According to Peter Richardson, sales & marketing manager, “it is the easiest and quickest way to accurately monitor the volume and quality of the dairy, pig or poultry ration in your feed silo”.

Visitors to stand No. 40 on Block 2 (Row 2) also have the opportunity to win a V-Mac feed barrow valued at €400.

McAree technical advisors on the stand will include Fergal Sherry, Noel Kiely, and Peter Richardson along with Barry and Eileen Finnegan from Lvlogics Ltd.
