Over 80 representatives from Ransomes Jacobsen’s Iseki distributors across the UK attended a two-day dealer meeting at Trinity Park in Ipswich to view and ride a range new and current products.
Split into two days due to the number of attendees, the event was broken down into morning classroom sessions and afternoon ride ‘n’ drives. In the classroom sessions members of the Ransomes sales and product management teams provided detailed information on the recently introduced TG range of compact tractors and updates on existing products including the Iseki SF450 cut and collect out-front rotary mower.
After lunch, the afternoon sessions provided the opportunity to test all of the Iseki products distributed by Ransomes Jacobsen. The delegates were split into five groups and were able to drive each machine on the vast acreage at Trinity Park, home of the Suffolk Show.
Also in attendance were Tadanori Kaneko and Satoshi Ishida from Iseki Europe, who were able to answer technical questions from delegates and also to help celebrate Iseki’s 90 anniversary with tea and specially made cake.
Commenting at the conclusion of the second day, John Quinton, Ransomes Jacobsen’s UK Sales Manager said, “We are absolutely delighted at the success of the meeting. The new TG range was very well received and the positivity from each group at the end of both days was remarkable. We ensured that we put on an educational and instructional event and our Japanese guests were very impressed with quality of the presentations and the manner in which we organised the ride and drive aspect. They were particularly impressed with the venue and its acres of space and unlimited supply of grass.”
Richard Tyrrell, Ransomes Jacobsen’s Product Manager for Iseki products added, “The response from the dealers to the new products was superb and they were delighted with the new features on the TG range. We also saw a lot of interest in the smallest model in the fleet, the SRA 950F four-wheel drive brushcutter. We can look forward to next season with great positivity.”
