Harvesting equipment specialist MacDon Australia Pty Ltd has expanded to include McIntosh & Son Esperance to its national dealership network.

Opened in 2017, Esperance is the newest dealership for McIntosh & Son and is now the sole distributor for the full line of MacDon products for the area.

Dealer Principal for McIntosh & Son’s southern branches, Devon Gilmour, believes this is a positive addition for surrounding growers who will appreciate having access to the full range of MacDon product lines and associated service provision, as well as an extensive parts catalogue.

The appointment gives farmers in the state’s south east access to some of the world’s best windrowers, swathers, mowers, and Draper fronts including the original MacDon™ FlexDraper® with an Active Float System that allows the header to conform to the ground with minimal ground pressure for an even cut every time, plus on-the-go control of ground pressure, cutting height and fore-aft header tilt.

McIntosh & Son has demonstrated its service-oriented approach with development of its Katanning parts warehouse and showroom facility, and its service workshop in Geraldton. The company has also applied to have its Katanning and Wongan Hills branches registered as regional training organisations (RTOs) with the aim of accepting the company’s 2020 intake of agricultural machinery apprentices.

These moves have made statements about the company’s professionalism and drive to deliver better customer services and retention of staff.

“Partnering with a dealership committed to customer service and support like McIntosh & Son at Esperance means positive outcomes for everyone”, MacDon Australia CEO David Rudolph said.

MacDon Industries is a family-owned and Canadian-based manufacturer of harvesting equipment, specialising in the production of pull-type and self-propelled windrowers and specialty and pick-up fronts for combines.

MacDon aim to make harvesting easier and more productive for farmers, by working directly with dealers and growers in the toughest real-world conditions.
