“VST’s new multiutility compact tractors have several firsts to their credit including an independent PTO, MID PTO, reverse PTO, fully synchromesh gearbox, electro-hydraulic controls (EHC), and dual track width option with selective models. By adopting advanced technology, the new range provides increased comfort for the operator. The EHC feature enables the driver to control the implements with the touch of a button. Its narrowest track width with dual options and short turning radius allows farmers to navigate narrow spaces easily while working with different crops, considerably increasing productivity and reducing crop damage,” the company said.
“The ergonomics of the new VST series 9 tractors include raised platform, a premium look, projector headlamps, a heat protector shield, a new-generation instrument cluster, a deluxe seat, and a short turning radius. These versatile tractors are suitable for a wide range of applications and can be used with tillers, rotavators, MB plough, ridger, duck foot cultivators, sprayers, loaders, haulage, thresher, genset, and many more,” the farm equipment maker said.
