A TRACTOR dealership open day has evolved into the biggest farm machinery show in North Wales.

On March 1 Gaerwen-based Emyr Evans Tractors stages its fourth machinery show with a star-studded line-up of big name manufacturers.

For the second time the event is being held at Mona showground, Anglesey, where the inaugural event in 2009 attracted more than 700 farmers.

Last year the show was staged at the company's Denbigh base to co-incide with the opening of expanded premises.

Gaerwen manager Gwynedd Evans said: "Mona showground is the ideal venue: it's indoors, heated, accessible and has plenty of parking.

"We organised it to start after lunch and run on late so that farmers have the flexibility to come when they want.

"We tend to find people have a look around, then stay on for the social element - the atmosphere really is very good."

Besides Massey Ferguson, for which the dealership is best known, visitors can inspect new models from JCB, Fendt, Manitou, McHale, Marshall and Pottinger.

Sales are expected to be high as the April 5 deadline looms for tax changes affecting purchases of new plant and machinery.

Currently the first pounds 100,000 spent on machinery attracts a 100% capital allowance - but this will drop to only pounds 25,000 after April 5. If the invoice is raised before the deadline, payment must be made within four months to qualify for the higher rate.

The free event runs from 2pm-10pm and will have a St David's Day theme.
