FARMTRAC on Tuesday announced the launch of two new tractor models, 6060 and 6065 — first 'executive' tractors. Available in 60HP and 65HP, these tractors are designed to cater to the progressive new-age Indian farmers who are smart, educated, have an entrepreneurial bent of mind, and have adopted farming as a business of their choice.
Both Farmtrac 6060 and 6065 come with a new four-cylinder turbocharged, intercooled engine that delivers higher torque to run larger implements and pull heavier loads. The tractors are offered in two transmission options — a modern 24-speed syncroshuttle gearbox providing versatility to do multiple tasks — and a heavy-duty 8+2 speed epicyclic transmission delivering high reliability in toughest of conditions.
Furthermore, the tractors are equipped with the latest four-wheel drive technology which ensures full utilisation of engine power allowing these tractors to perform bigger tasks in the least time. These new tractors provide for an in-line fuel injection pump, which unlike the rotary pumps used by the competition, stays unaffected by adulterated fuel and is the preferred customer choice.
Speaking at the launch, S Sridhar, chief executive officer, Escorts Agri Machinery, said, "Farmers in Punjab and Haryana have been trend-setters in agricultural practices. They have successfully demonstrated the merits of farm mechanisation which has further led agriculture to become a flourishing business for them."
