TAFE – Tractors and Farm Equipment Limited, through one of its tractor manufacturer companies, Massey Ferguson tractors, have recently launched their MAGNATRAK series in India
The new tractor for the Indian market was unveiled at a ceremony in Kolhapur city, in the state of Maharashtra. The brand new Massey Ferguson 8055 MAGNATRAK in the 50 hp range, is the first of the MAGNATRAK series.
According to TAFE, the MAGNATRAK series is said to be designed with advanced technology and performance in mind, with utility at a low operating cost, that is ideally suited for heavy haulage operations.
Mallika Srinivasan, CMD, TAFE said, “For over 60 years, TAFE and the Massey Ferguson brand have shared a deep and strong bond with the farmers of India’s Maharashtra. The farmers here are very progressive, who are rapidly adopting the latest technologies to increase productivity and drive enhanced value from their farming operations. To meet their key aspirations of power, style, comfort, and efficiency, TAFE today launched the new MAGNATRAK series. We are honored to introduce the premium heavy-duty haulage tractor – the MAGNATRAK in Kolhapur, the sugarcane capital of India.”
The premium haulage tractor is paired with TAFE’s MAGNATORQ engine for maximum torque and high fuel efficiency. The engine boasts a best in class torque of 200 Nm, enabling the tractor to pull heavy trolleys, both off-road and on-road. The engine and the transmission are tuned to deliver exceptional productivity with high road speeds resulting in more savings, faster load completion cycles and high fuel efficiency.
The MAGNATRAK also features practical styling elements that include an aerodynamic single-piece bonnet with a one-touch front opening system. The spacious platform and an adjustable seat is designed for operator safety and comfort. An industry first, the MF 8055 comes with powerful projector headlamps and Tri-LED for better visibility and brightness at night.
The MAGNATRAK series is well-compatible with a wide variety of agricultural applications like reversible moldboard plow (RMB), rotavator, post-hole digger, threshers and newer applications like the baler as well.
MAGNATRAK’s higher ground clearance helps in easy navigation of the tractor, even while crossing bunds and uneven roads. The tractor’s longer wheelbase ensures stability and prevents front lifting while pulling heavy loads. The high PTO placement offers superior performance with a wide variety of PTO operating implements. Maxx Oil Immersed Brakes (OIB) and safety guards for radiator and silencer further make the MAGNATRAK an extremely safe and dependable tractor.
