Reesink is launching Farmtrac’s smart range of compact tractors at LAMMA with the FT25G electric model featuring lithium-ion battery technology headlining its stand.
Farmtrac’s FT25G electric tractor is a hugely popular proposition for equestrian centres, greenhouse growers and livestock farms, with its compact size, zero emissions and low noise levels. Charged from a domestic socket to 100 percent in five hours and able to run for up to six hours, productivity isn’t affected by the decision to go green. Oil-immersed brakes, power steering and position control hydraulic linkage are all standard fare on the FT25G.
A new dedicated division from Reesink in the UK, Reesink Agriculture, has secured the exclusive distribution rights for Farmtrac tractors in the UK and in addition to the electric FT25G will also debut a selection of the comprehensive nine-strong smart-looking 20-113hp range at LAMMA.
Alongside the FT25G and also at the show is the FT22, the most compact tractor in the range and multifaceted for small holdings and small farms. Powered by a Mitsubishi engine, there’s plenty of choice with the FT22 – turf, agri or industrial tyres, mechanical transmission, selectable four-wheel drive and folding ROPS, plus the options of a cab and front loader.
The FT30H has as many options as the FT22, but slightly more power, comes with a HST transmission and will be an intriguing choice for work in orchards and large gardens.
The FT6075 is a powerful, 75hp utility tractor for larger farms and estates. Its loader has a lift of 1000kg meaning it can handle a host of tough tasks.
Completing the show line-up is the 90hp FT690 model. This powerful, all-rounder is ideal for farms that have big jobs to do – ploughing, seeding, fertilising, cultivating, harvesting and transporting, all are done without fuss – and lots of comfort – with the FT690. Comfort is thanks to the modern cab, complete with air conditioning, efficient ventilation, soundproofing and plenty of space.
Farmtrac tractors incorporate world-class components including transmissions designed and produced by Carraro and hydraulic systems from MITA. The engines are designed to meet the relevant emission standards with stage V products under development. Models feature independent rear PTO, and mid PTO is available on tractors equipped with HST transmission. As a range, all Farmtrac tractors boast a simple and reliable design, low fuel consumption and low maintenance costs and the ability to plough through jobs easily, while its smart appearance can be attributed to styling by the Porsche design studio.
A robust warranty supports the launch of the range into the UK market, giving customers significant peace of mind. And supported by Reesink, a distributor renowned and trusted for its servicing, maintenance and back-up.
Steven Haynes, tractor sales manager at Reesink, says: “We were looking to bring to the UK market a tractor range designed to offer performance and value while being simple and intuitive to operate. Not only that, but it had to be from a brand that paves the way with its product development. All of these points are evident across the range, but none more so than in the effective and innovative electric model.”
