One of Scotland’s main Claas dealerships, Sellars Agriculture, is expanding into the central belt.
Claas has revealed details of a number of new options being made available next season for its Quadrant 4200, 5200 and 5300 balers.
The popularity of Claas machinery has been steadily rising since several combines arrived in the UK in 1947.
