New grassland equipment maker coming to UK


Already present in many European markets including Switzerland, Austria, Holland and Germany, grassland equipment manufacturer Sip is to re-enter the UK market.

Sip hopes its latest machines will be a tempting alternative to the well-known brands.

With its base and factory in Slovenia, the manufacturer will be selling directly to dealers in the UK and will be represented by sales director Martin Holden. Having previously worked for Kongskilde/JF, Mr Holden is no stranger to grassland equipment and knows the market well, says the manufacturer.


While Sip has previously been available in the UK through Twose, up until 2015, this is the first time the company has entered the UK market in its own right. Andrei Cosovici, Sip’s director of sales and marketing says; “We have been planning our strategic sales growth for some years, starting with bringing in new designers to give our new products and upcoming developments a fresh edge over many established popular brands.


“With the recent consolidation within the farm machinery manufacturing business, Sip is perfectly placed to offer dealers and farmers a complete range of mowers, rakes and tedders from a specialist in this area. In particular, Sip is focusing on the professional contractor market to provide mowing, tedding and raking/gathering integrated solutions up to 15m working width.”


The first showing of the new organisation takes place at Grass and Muck event in Warwickshire this month where several models will be on display in the static exhibition area on stand no 601.

Over the last three years, Sip’s mower range has been completely revised to include new technology such as hydraulic suspended front-mounted, three point rear mounted and trailed disc mower models. Interestingly, the firm also makes all of its own disc beds.


All mowers are equipped with the firm’s quick release knife system and a patented disc protection system for easy in field repair, it says.

Tedders and rakes

Tedders span 4.55 to 15m working widths, with the three largest sizes being trailed and folding to under 3m transport width and only 2m high.


Likewise, its range of rakes comprises side and centre delivery models up to 10m. A new four-rotor design with a working width of 15m is due for launch at Agritechnica 2017 and will be available for the 2018 season.
