The Foire de Libramont, Belgium's largest outdoor agricultural show, took place at the end of July. Pöttinger Belgium sprl. - founded last year - was present for the first time with its own exhibition stand. Despite the poor weather, the numerous visitors were highly impressed with the equipment on display. The advantages of the machines with all their new features shone through. The fair provided an excellent opportunity to intensify direct contact with farmers and dealerships. Many of our dealers said that the new sales structure promoted customer proximity that has been very positively received. 

One of the new Pöttinger machines - the large trailed HIT 10.11 T tedder - won an award during the show. Its unique Liftmatic plus rotor raising mechanism with headland position won the technical innovation prize. All machinery that won awards of this kind were demonstrated in action. During this demonstration the award-winning HIT 10.11 T showed off its abilities in front of hundreds of enthusiastic farmers.
