Here at Wilsons of Rathkenny, we are one of the 9 authorised Weidemann dealers in Ireland.  Hoftracs, Wheel Loaders, Tele-Wheel Loaders and Telehandlers that are designed with the farmer in mind, and are manufactured to the demanding German standards of quality and durability, have proved themselves to be an invaluable tool to the Irish farmer!  We offer the full range of innovative Weidemann machines at our Agricultural Showroom, based just outside Ballymena. 

The multi-functional Hoftrac

Weidemann’s smaller pivot steer machines have been very successful in Ireland in recent years.  From the 1140 up to the 1880, these compact machines are being put to the test and fit perfectly at home on Irish farms.  With a compact design, low centre of gravity, tight turning radius and powerful performance, they can effortlessly fulfil any work task and work quickly, flexibly and safely.  If you are having labour issues on your farm, the ‘Hoftrac’ range can solve your problem.  Let the Weidemann take control of all the endless manual jobs around the yard, reducing the daily workload for you!  Yard scraping, mucking out, saw dust dispensing and feeding are just a few examples of the jobs these keenly priced Weidemann machines can do. 

The powerful Wheel Loader

The Weidemann wheel loaders make every work application even more productive. In addition to a high level of functionality, working comfort and excellent safety standards, they have a great deal of power and endurance.  With a Weidemann wheel loader you’re in safe hands!  Although this isn’t a massive market to date in Ireland due to the size of the wheel loaders available, Weidemann are set to grow in this particular sector thanks to the introduction of the new 9080 model.  This 11T machine packs a punch of 156HP and with an oil flow rate of 180ltr/min (flowing sharing), it really is top of the class in performance.

Telescopic Wheel Loaders

The ‘tele loader’ range has a strong hold in the Irish market.  Packed with innovative features, a telescopic wheel loader has a telescopic arm and can therefore offer increased lifting height and reach.  They are perfect for jobs such as stacking bales, shear grabbing silage as well as buck raking silage in the summer.  From the 2080T up to the most popular 5080T, these bigger machines are a great asset to any farm.  With a lift capacity starting at 1.8T in the 2080T right up to 3T in the 5080T, there‘s a loader to suit everyone! 

The compact Telescopic Loader

The compact Weidemann telehandlers are unique in their combination of lifting height, width and machine power.   Weidemann’s T4512 is the most successful machine to date in Ireland.  This compact, well-equipped 4WS machine is the best selling 4WS loader in Ireland and also right across Europe.  Farmers are finding the T4512 can do anything they want it to do, and it will withstand the high demands of daily life on an Irish farm.  Driving and working with the T4512 is efficient and enjoyable, it’s “some wee yoke!”  With the relaunch of this model in late 2020, the next generation T4512 has been totally redesigned and has many new features and functions, and will no doubt continue to be such a success in Ireland.  Read more here.

Another option in this range of machines is the slightly larger T5522 which offers over 2T lift capacity, but is still very compact.  With a width and height of less than 2mtrs, it is also ideal for use in tight working spaces. 

This market is set to see even further growth with the introduction of larger 4WS machines coming soon.  These new models will definitely complement the current range.

Attachments – turn your Weidemann into a multi-tool

With a wide range of attachments available for all machines, your Weidemann will offer you endless functionality and practicality.  Thanks to the hydraulic quick-change system, all attachments can be easily changed from the driver’s seat.  So your machine is immediately ready to get to work again, which will lead to increased productivity and profitability.

Designed for Work.

Thanks to the many innovative concepts, technologies and sophisticated production model, Weidemann machines really are designed for work and have proved this in Ireland since 2009.  A Weidemann is more than a machine, it is a solution.  The machines are reliable, durable, compact, user friendly, easy to operate and so much more!  They are a multi-tool that has been designed to help farmers’ complete daily jobs quicker and more effectively, saving both time and money.

With various options available, we will help you choose the right Weidemann to suit your application, so you can be sure your machine meets your individual needs.  We will demo any machine to let you see firsthand how invaluable a Weidemann is and prove they really are designed for work!  So why not see for yourself?  Book a demo with Wilsons of Rathkenny today!
