About Us

MANNS is part of the CLAAS global agricultural machinery business, and we sell and service a comprehensive range of high- quality harvesting equipment and tractors. The CLAAS name has always been recognised for providing excellent and efficient service and machinery, which is the ethos we uphold here at MANNS.

Employing over 100 staff, MANNS provide a complete service for their customers from Machinery Sales through to After Sales, Service, Parts supply and Finance support from CLAAS Finance.

With a fleet of more than 70 well equipped service vehicles and a high proportion of engineers qualified to Master Mechanic or Master Technician, MANNS provide an After Sales and Service back up which is second to none.  Operating 7 days a week during the Golden Harvest and with out of hours call out facilities the remainder of the year, we are here when you need us.  With on-going training and development of all staff through the new CLAAS Training Academy, customers can rest assured that today's state of the art machines receive the very best support from MANNS fully trained technicians.

Between our 7 branches MANNS cover East Anglia, Leicestershire and Kent, selling the full range of CLAAS machinery from 75hp to 500 hp tractors, forager harvesters, green harvest products, telescopic handlers and loading shovels through to the flagship LEXION combine range. We also stock the full range of HORSCH products for cultivation & seeding and the LEEB self-propelled and trailed sprayer range as well as the full range of STEWART trailers.  In addition we provide professional financial assistance through CLAAS Finance, we share close links with the CLAAS factory and have a Parts Logistics system that is the envy of the industry.

This same professionalism is given to the MANNS used machinery business from a dedicated Used Machinery Centre (UMC) at Saxham to support the sale of used combines, foragers, tractors and other equipment.  The Centre is a purpose built facility to keep used machinery in premium condition once prepared for sale.

As UK agriculture polarises into larger units, we recognise the importance of staying close to our customers, irrespective of the size of the business, and we have not compromised in this belief.  We have built a strong and enduring relationship with our customers, based on stability, continuity and trust and we look to expand our customer base still further in the future.

MANNS continue to run as well structured business with a secure future, supported by CLAAS a leading global manufacturer. Contact us today for more details.
