Farmtrac Tractors Europe,
leading International tractor producer from Escorts group , unveiled its latest
global tractor portfolio ranging from 20-120 HP, at Agritechnica 2017 held in
Hanover in Germany. The first electric tractor produced by Escorts Ltd was also
unveiled at the show.
Named NETS (New Escorts
Tractor Series) the newest Farmtrac tractors are fully compliant with EPA Tier
4 emission regulations, and designed with simplicity for farm applications at
each power level. Styling by Studio F. A. Porsche brings the range a unique
blend of style and comfort, providing a complete new look and aesthetics for
today’s global farmers.

flagship NETS models, offering power ratings from 70 to 90 HP; compact tractors
in 22 to 30 HP options; crossover tractors designed to appeal to both on-farm

At the Agritechnica, Farmtrac also introduced
EPA Tier 4 emission regulations compliant CRDi engines, previously limited to
cars and naturally-aspirated machines, which the company says will meet
customer demands from the United States, Europe, Latin America, Africa and
ASEAN countries, as well as the growing numbers of ‘new generation’ farmers in
its domestic Indian market.
In the shape of the Farmtrac

eco-friendly electric tractor is the first such tractor to be developed and
built in India, the world’s largest tractor market where the annual demand for
tractors is seeing double-digit growth. Although still in development, the full
production version is expected during 2019.
