Farmtrac to light up show with new electric tractor with lithium-ion battery

 Hot off the heels of its successful launch to the UK agricultural market earlier this year, distributor Reesink Agriculture is bringing Farmtrac to Dairy-Tech 2020 to showcase the range of powerful and competitively priced tractors to visitors.

 Cutting-edge and cost-effective, the comprehensive and innovative nine-strong smart-looking 22-113hp range offers a practical solution for most small, mid and heavy-duty tasks on the farm. And Reesink is bringing five of these dependable, intuitive workhorses, including the all-new, all-electric FT25G, to the show.

 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. We were delighted to secure the exclusive distribution rights for the Farmtrac range in the UK. It’s a hugely exciting development for the market.”

 The 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.

 Alongside the FT25G is the most compact tractor in the range and multifaceted for small holdings and small farms. The FT22 is powered by a Mitsubishi engine and offers plenty of choice with turf, agricultural or industrial tyres, mechanical transmission, selectable four-wheel drive and folding ROPS, plus the options of a cab and front loader.

 The FT26H has as many similar features as the FT22, but with a more powerful engine, comes with an HST transmission and will be an intriguing choice for those who work in and maintain orchards and large gardens.

 The FT6075 is a powerful, 75hp utility tractor for larger farms and estates. It features a fuel-efficient diesel engine and a 12×12 speed transmission and with an impressive 2500kg lift capacity which means it can handle a host of tough tasks.

 The powerful, all-rounder 90hp FT690 model is ideal for farms that have big jobs to do – ploughing, seeding, fertilising, cultivating, harvesting and transporting, all are done without fuss – in lots of comfort – with the FT690. Comfort is thanks to the modern cab, complete with air conditioning, efficient ventilation, soundproofing and plenty of space for the operator.

 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 concludes: “Farmtrac provides a tractor solution for those needing great value with great performance. There’s something for everyone in the debuting comprehensive range. The new electric model has already generated a lot of interest and showcases a major leap forward in new product development and technological advances.”
