About Us


Agricultural Machinery joined Cornthwaite Agricultural in March 2009 to become part of the Cornthwaite Group. Agricultural Machinery is the main John Deere dealer for Cheshire and Cornthwaite Agricultural is the main John Deere dealer for Lancashire. Together we have become one of the largest John Deere dealer groups in the UK, specialising in the sale and support of new and quality used tractors and farm machinery.

In June 2017 we announced our agreement to sell and support Kramer telescopic handlers, and their range of wheeled loaders. The agreement is for both the Agricultural and Industrial sectors covering Shropshire, Staffordshire, Cheshire, North and Mid Wales, Lancashire, Cumbria, Derbyshire and the Isle of Man.

Cornthwaite Agricultural is based near Ormskirk, in the North of England. Our purpose built depot is approximately 5 miles from Junction 27 of the M6. We have an experienced sales team with broad product knowledge backed up with a dedicated and highly trained team of service and parts technicians. Our professional, friendly admin team will also help you with any queries.

Agricultural Machinery was originally formed in 1951 by the Hughes family and is based in Nantwich - the heart of Cheshire. Since that time we have built up, and to this day maintained, a fantastic reputation for customer service and support.

As well as John Deere and Kramer, we hold many other franchises including Bailey Trailers, Krone, Vaderstad, Reco, Fleming, Quicke, Browns, Zuidbert, Redrock, Standen and Gregoire Besson.

We specialise in used tractors and used farm machinery and have a constantly changing range of used tractors and used machines available. We export high volumes of used tractors and used farm machinery all over the world.
