Maxol are putting the challenge to some of the almost 300,000 attendees at the Ploughing Championships to prove their Farm Safety skills by taking a spin in the Maxol Agri Tractor Simulator. Programmes include a tractor and trailer obstacle course, reversing and parking with a trailer, and handling and loading bales onto a trailer.
Owen O’Neill, General Manager, Maxol Lubricants said;
“It’s always a pleasure to be at the National Ploughing Championship, our Agri Tractor Simulator is proving to be great fun and it’s fantastic to have the legendary Grassmen visiting us today. We are very keen to help the farming community to look after themselves and to remimd them of the importance of farm safety whenever we can. That’s why we have partnered with AgriLand this year to highlight safe practice around tractors, and we have also featured safety tips on our own website, www.maxol.ie/lubricants. Farm accidents have increased by 13% in the last 5 years according to the Teagasc National Farm Survey and we want to do as much as we can, when we can, to send this trend in the opposite direction.”
