This historic tractor was restored over the last 10 years by Benny McCabe a local Monaghan man and is powered by tractor vaporising oil [TVO].

Manufacture of the Fordson tractor took place in the USA from 1917 and production in Cork from 1919.

The McAree stand will be bigger and better than ever before and display their full range of V-Mac silos on display.

These include the enclosed, legged and offset options as well as their 4 ton hopper and Tote bins. 

The feed silos are constructed using Magizinc, a modern steel that provides the extremely high levels of protection against corrosion and with exclusive interlocked forming and are incredibly strong.

McAree make their silos different from anyone else as the rolled body construction ensures a smooth inside wall helping excellent product flow and super-strength construction.

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

In addition McAree will be featuring the SiloSpi feed silo monitoring solution, featuring Lvlogics software and monitoring application.

They will also be showing their new Feed Mill Silo Concept. This innovative design is intended for use in high throughput, high volume storage situations like industrial mills.   This is a new Square Silo that is fully configurable to any size you require and is easy to assemble.  

The first ones are currently being installed on a JMW Farms feed milling site in Co. Armagh.

Visitors to stand have the opportunity to win a V-Mac feed barrow valued at €400.

McAree personnel on the stand will include Fergal Sherry, Noel Kiely & Peter Richardson.
