Utility Tractor Reviews
The Yanmar T-80-CCE resides in a class all of its own: designed with vineyards and orchards in mind, this tracked model drives like a conventional tractor yet looks like a dozer.
When we got word that an owner of a brand new, shiny John Deere 4720 was offering us the chance to get his well-optioned cab tractor dirty (a little anyhow), we seized the opportunity.
The Mahindra 6110 Shuttle Cab tractor is no lightweight, but it offers impressive stability, even with the loader in full raise. Add in a comfortable cabin and aggressive financing options you’ve got a 59-horsepower contender.
Fire up the Perkins and you are immediately struck by how quiet the Massey Ferguson HD Series 2660’s 81-horsepower powerplant is.
First impressions are important and in the case of the all new RX6010PC tractor, we came away thinking Kioti has a winner. Read on to see if you agree.
Luxury. Comfort. Convenience. Words not typically associated with a tractor cockpit, but test drive a 5105M and you’ll see how John Deere’s attention to fit, form and function have taken the tractor experience to a whole new level.
Operating the DK45SE was a pleasure. The twin side-by-side pedal arrangement was comfortable and well modulated, the cab was also quite quiet, even at PTO speeds, and we found the loader hydraulics exceptionally responsive, even at idle.
With the company’s storied history in mind, we had a difficult time containing our enthusiasm when the opportunity to put a Case IH Farmall 75C cab tractor through its paces came up. It certainly lived up to our lofty expectations.
The Mahindra 5010 4WD Cab model, when equipped with a hydrostatic transmission, puts 38 hp to the power take off (PTO). This is tractor capable of running that heavy duty 8-foot rotary cutter or lifting nearly a ton and a half to full lift height.
Some names in the tractor business need less introduction than others; Massey Ferguson is one of these.
