Ballarat Tractors Teams Up With Midwest Fabrication

Melbourne Tractors Group are pleased to announce our Ballarat branch, Ballarat Tractors has now added a new franchise, Midwest Fabrication, to complement its growing combine harvester business.


Sam Risbey, the Branch Manager for Ballarat Tractors said the addition of Midwest Fabrication draper platforms will help service the agricultural sector in the Ballarat region more efficiently.


“As well as providing service and support to existing Midwest customers in this area, the addition of Midwest Fabrication to our business is to provide wide draper platforms for not only New Holland combines and windrow tractors, but also all other brands as well,” said Sam.


“Midwest currently has a new wide 18.3m/60Ft draper platform operating this year, and it has captured a lot of interest in the market already,” he said.


“That size maybe a little big in our area, but they do have platforms down to 25ft that can be mounted to front linkage of tractors for windrowing, self-propelled windrowers for swathing, platforms for direct cutting cereal crops for self-propelled forager harvesters, or harvest and windrow/harvest platforms for combine harvesters.”


Midwest is a well-known and respected Australian company whose products are innovative, reliable and provide exceptional high performance.  A family owned company based in Dalby, Queensland, they have been developing and manufacturing draper platforms for over 14 years.


“Our team at Ballarat Tractors will be able to provide sales, parts and service support for our Midwest customers through their harvest season.  We will be carrying good stocks of parts and our technicians will be factory trained by the Midwest team,” said Sam.


Bernie Allport, COO for Midwest Fabrication welcomes Ballarat Tractors to its growing national dealer network.  “Ballarat Tractors has a great reputation for the customer support they have for their products.  Sam and his team are looking forward to growing and supporting the sales of Midwest products in western and southern Victoria, especially at this critical harvest time of the year,” he said.
