India’s fastest growing tractor manufacturer and the No. 1 Exports brand, ITL has developed the new technology marvel in collaboration with its Japanese partner Yanmar Agribusiness Co to deliver benefits of three tractors in one tractor.
ITL has become the first tractor manufacturer in India to introduce ‘E-Powerboost’ – the Japanese hybrid technology under its Solis Yanmar range and has also patented the related product technologies. With the launch of new Solis Hybrid 5015 tractor, ITL aims to further strengthen Solis Yanmar’s position as the 4W drive tractor experts.
The new 50 HP Solis Hybrid 5015 tractor is a customised product that optimises traditional diesel engine power combined with electric energy to deliver sustainable performance and high speed, similar to what is offered by a 60 HP tractor. The efficient heavy duty mileage engine of the futuristic tractor consumes fuel similar to that of 45 HP tractor, thereby reducing fuel consumption and save costs.
Using a simple ‘Power booster’ switch on the dashboard and a hand-operated lever, the customer would experience smooth power adjustment to gain a powerful boost in tractor performance. The advanced vehicle controller monitors the energy and the tractor also gets faster acceleration with its highly efficient electric motor. With the power booster, the Solis Hybrid 5015 tractor becomes the most powerful in its segment to offer unmatched performance.
