The first AXION 900 series tractor to be sold in Scotland was an AXION 940 bought by Farmcare at Monymusk in Aberdeenshire in 2013, which has now clocked-up over 5,000 trouble free hours.The 380hp AXION 940 was bought to replace a smaller 268hp AXION 850 and now, as then, it is mainly used for both ploughing and drilling on the farm, where the hilly terrain soaks up power.

Overall mechanically the AXION has been extremely good and apart from a broken hose which was repaired by SELLARS within hours, it has never let us down.
Overall reliability has been excellent and there is no comparison between the AXION and previous machines we have operated.
Thanks to its extra power, it boosted our daily drilling output by about 20% and it is still turning in that level of performance. And because it has been so reliable, when our contract hire agreement ends later this year I am certainly looking to try and keep it on.
