Getting Ready to Show at Royal Cornwall

Only two weeks to go until we see you all at Royal Cornwall Show!  The showground up at Wadebridge is always a fun and busy weekend, but if you were wondering how on earth you are going to find Truro Tractors in among all the other exhibitors, well…  here is a hand map:

This year, Truro Tractors will be located on stand number 436 – pretty much in the same area as last year – and easily identified by the flashing “TT”.

This year the show dates are from Thursday the 9th of June, until Saturday the 11th.  Previous shows have been a bit windy, or extremely rainy… check out the weather forecast for 2016.

We’re not making this up!  Sunshine, temperatures of 14ºC, and just a light breeze.  You can confirm this information for yourself.

Truro Tractor is bringing more machines than ever.

Look out for the special delivery of a New Holland T7 Heavy Duty.

New for 2016, the Kawasaki Pro DX will also be at the show.

Data Cut

The Bomford Flailbot is a remotely operated track mower for challenging terrain, and Truro Tractors will be bringing it to Royal Cornwall too.

As well as these exciting new machines, Truro Tractors will be exhibiting a range of Honda quad bikes; New Holland tractors from the Boomer up to the T7.200 and Heavy Duty models, inlcuding the Blue Power line; a New Holland LM635 telehandler; more mowers from Lely and Bomford… the list goes on!  And we haven’t even mentioned the ride-on mowers, chainsaws and other horticultural machinery that will be on show.

If you can’t wait for Royal Cornwall Show to come around, call your local depot of Truro Tractors today and come and see what we have to offer.

Tractor Ted Tuesday

It’s not quite summer yet!  The sun may be shining but there is still a chill in the air, so when your young Tractor Ted fan is outside playing, keeping them warm with this great little hoody jumper.

New to the Tractor Ted range – and available at the Chacewater branch of Truro Tractors –  this navy hoody has a front pocket to keep little hands warm on chilly days.  The Tractor Ted badge made of velour, and the hood has buttercup yellow waffle lining.  Elasticated cuffs in red give contrast and are a nice extra finish.
