Daly’s Garage has the right tractor for you

15 May , 2024  

As new tractor prices continue to sky-rocket, more and more farmers and contractors are turning to the second-hand market in their search for a value-for-money alternative. And they don’t have to look any further than Daly’s Garage in Clongeel, Co. Cork for used tractors of the highest quality.

Established in 1980, Daly’s Garage is a leading farm machinery sales, service, tractor parts and agricultural spare parts business which boasts a nationwide customer-base. The garage has an excellent reputation for sourcing New Holland, Massey Ferguson, Case and John Deere tractors from the UK with one owner and genuine hours.

“There’s always a big demand for good second-hand tractors, especially ex-hire or demo models from the UK,” founder and owner Billy Daly says.

“They represent great value-for-money compared to new tractors. Most of the tractors we source have only 500-600 hours on them, but we can supply any tractor to suit any budget or requirement. We deal with New Holland, Massey, Case and John Deere because they are the leading brands. We also source the odd excavator for our construction clients.

“All our stock is HPI-checked for customer peace of mind and protection. We stand over everything we sell. We pride ourselves on the excellent quality of our machinery and the exceptional service we offer customers. Our product knowledge is second to none.”

As well as used tractors, Daly’s Garage supplies a wide range of new and used agricultural equipment and parts. The family-run business is a main dealer for Major vacuum tankers, Quicke front loaders, Rossmore front loaders, Nugent trailers and transport boxes, and Vector Powerdrive fence post drivers. In addition, Daly’s Garage has been supplying Maxol oils and lubricants since its inception and stocks everything from slurry fittings and tractor touch-up paints to PTO parts and bearings.

Daly’s Garage is committed to providing a professional and value-for-money service to meet the growing requirements of its customers along with knowledge and understanding of the industry that will ultimately benefit them. A comprehensive range of machinery is stocked at all times.

“We stock tractor parts for John Deere, Massey Ferguson, New Holland, Valtra and much more,” Billy continues.

“We also have an extensive farm machinery parts section which includes parts for Krone, John Deere, ring rollers, hedge-cutters, mowers, balers, spreaders, sprayers, bale wrappers and many more. Quality Tractor Parts in Mullingar, Sparex in Waterford, McHugh Components in Dublin and Genfitt in Kiltimagh, Co. Mayo keeps us topped up with parts on a daily basis.

“Being able to offer value and service to the customer means everything to us. To this end, we are constantly striving to ensure every item we sell is competitively priced and the customer is happy with the service we offer.”

Daly’s Garage also leads the way when it comes to service and repairs. Both Billy and his son Liam are qualified tractor mechanics and between them, they provide a complete range of proactive and reactive solutions to ensure that downtime is kept to an absolute minimum and farm machinery owners can get back to work as quickly and safely as possible.

“Liam is a Case and New Holland mechanic who is well-versed with the latest tractors and technology. He runs the workshop for us.”

Billy, whose wife Julieann is also involved in the business, served his time as a mechanic with Kanturk Motor Works (Case International and Vauxhall dealers) and Lucey’s (David Brown dealers) in Millstreet before founding Daly’s Garage 44 years ago.

“It was all repairs in the early days before I started bringing in tractors from the UK. At this stage, I know the motorways of England better than the Irish ones! I’ve forged strong relationships with many reputable dealers in the UK. I have a network of contacts who I can call on if I need a particular machine. I only deal with exceptional clean and tidy stuff with low hours on the clock.

“The customer comes first with us and we’re always available to deal with their queries. We listen to their needs and desires before sourcing the right tractor for them. We have something for everyone. That’s one of the reasons why we get a lot of repeat business.”

He adds: “We have been an agent for Major since 1985 and have been dealing with Rossmore for just as long. We sell a good few Major vacuum tanks with trailing shoes, for which there is a grant available to farmers.”

As Daly’s Garage continues to go from strength to strength, Billy would like to take this opportunity to thank his customers and suppliers for their continued support as well as his small, but dedicated team for their hard work and expertise.

For all your tractor, agricultural equipment, spare parts and service needs, Daly’s Garage has you covered. Opening hours are 9am to 6pm Monday-Saturday.
