A staple on the farm is the tractor. Today, growers have more and more choices, with units offering everything from better design to emission reduction. What follows are a couple of the latest the industry has to offer.
Some of the features on the new tractor include a 50 horsepower engine with a 2,800 pound, three-point lift capacity; four-cylinder, naturally aspirated diesel engine with large cubic-inch displacement for added durability; and four-wheel drive axle, which increases traction and enhances maneuverability. The three-point hitch includes telescoping stabilizers and flexible link ends for easy attachment of implements.
A large operating platform allows plenty of leg room to stretch out and includes tilt, telescoping steering wheel, power steering, adjustable seats, and storage tray with cup holder.
