MAGNATRAK’s higher ground clearance helps in easy navigation of the tractor, even while crossing bunds and uneven roads. Its 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 operated implements. Maxx Oil Immersed Brakes (OIB) and safety guards for radiator and silencer further make the MAGNATRAK an extremely safe and dependable tractor, the company said.
