Leading tractor manufacturer, Escorts Limited today launched which it claims to be the first Anti Lift Tractor in Chandigarh.
S P Pandey, Chief General Manager & Market Lead –Powertrac, Escorts Agri Machinery said during the launch that “With a determination to create tractors of the future, our engineers have understood the pain of haulage customers and designed India’s first comprehensive Anti Lift Tractors–the new ALT Series by Powertrac.” He said that tractors in general are usually vulnerable because of their front Lift nature, resulting in reduced or no steering of front wheels. This endangers the safety of the driver and results in considerable damage which increases the maintenance cost for the owner.
Pandey claimed that Escorts has developed an innovative technology through series of path breaking measures such as shifting the center of gravity and hitch point forward, unique hub-reduction transmission, increased wheel base, heavy front axle, stiffener bars and plates, custom-designed 85kg front bumpers and high-intensity extra front lamps. These features considerably improve the front Lift resistance capability of the tractor.
Built around the themes of driver safety and owner savings, the ALT made specifically for commercial haulage operators, are available in two models: ALT 4000 and ALT 3500. He said that aggressively priced new ALT 1.0 tractors come in 37 HP and 41 HP and shall be currently available in markets of Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand and Bihar.
