Sean Sr and Sean Jr Lacey run a successful contracting business in Carrick on Suir, Co. Tipperary/Ireland. The Lacey family are no strangers to Pöttinger products, having operated Pöttinger mowers, tedders, rakes, power harrows and seed drills for many years.
Sean Sr has been using Pöttinger power harrows since 1996 and the current unit is the fifth in a row. "We wouldn’t dream of buying anything else. Quality of work, reliability and low running costs are the reasons we buy Pöttinger. The acreage we can get from the tines is fantastic," explains Sean, "and the quick-change tines are secure and easy to replace."

"The new LION 3002 with 60 mm rotor shafts gives us even more confidence when working in stony difficult conditions. We do a lot of reseeding, and the Pöttinger VITASEM drill is mounted on the power harrow for this operation. In fact, that drill has covered 15,600 hectares to date," says Sean.
"In our opinion the Pöttinger power harrow is sturdy, reliable and a value-for-money machine. That's the simple reason why this is our fifth one in a row," agree both father and son Lacey.
