DIMO Agribusinesses, in collaboration with its steadfast partner Mahindra Tractors, has recently unveiled the state-of-the-art Mahindra Yuvo Tech+ 585 tractor, boasting 50 HP, to serve the needs of the Sri Lankan farming community.
The introduction of the Mahindra Yuvo Tech+ 585 tractor to the Sri Lankan market took place amidst the picturesque fields of Anuradhapura Galenbidunuwewa, featuring the enthusiastic presence of numerous farmers. Those in attendance were given the unique chance to experience a test drive of this cutting-edge tractor model.
As part of Mahindra’s innovative Yuvo tractor series, this particular tractor is equipped with a range of distinctive features that significantly boost its efficiency and adaptability. With a powerful 2979 CC engine generating high torque at 197nm, it excels in pulling heavier loads both in the field, particularly with rice cultivation, and during transportation. Additionally, it boasts an impressive lifting capacity of nearly 1700 kg. The maintenance-free dry-type air filter eliminates the need for regular servicing. When cleaning is necessary, an indicator on the panel notifies the tractor operator, ensuring easy monitoring. This air filter is engineered to enhance engine efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
The inclusion of a dual-clutch system enables continuous PTO operation even during gear shifting. With the PTO operation controlled by a manual lever, the machine can operate more efficiently and effortlessly over extended periods.
In response to the introduction of the latest 50 HP Mahindra Yuvo Tech+ 585 tractor, DIMO Director Rajeev Pandithage stated, “DIMO Agribusinesses remains focused in our commitment to advancing local agricultural mechanization, bringing in the next generation agriculture to our nation. Furthermore, we are dedicated to fostering sustainable progress in the evolution of agriculture for the upcoming generation, and to uplift the ambitions and hopes of our local farming community. We anticipate that this cutting-edge Mahindra Yuvo Tech+ 585 tractor will play a pivotal role in enhancing the efficiency of our local agriculture, thereby fuelling the dreams and aspirations of our country’s farming community.”
With modern Slipto technology, this tractor delivers 44.9 HP and features a 540-rpm rotating PTO system on both sides, making it exceptionally proficient at handling attached implements with ease and efficiency. Equipped with a side gear lever system featuring synchro shuttle technology, this tractor offers 12 forward and 12 reverse speeds. This configuration empowers the tractor operator to efficiently accomplish a greater amount of work while minimizing fuel consumption, whether in the field or during transportation. Furthermore, the high-capacity hydraulic pump enhances precision and lifting capacity, ensuring uniform soil preparation with advanced technology.
The utilization of large-sized tires with mud grooves, measuring 9.5×20 in the front and 14.9×28 in the rear, effectively raises the tractor’s clearance from the ground. This feature enables the modern tractor to effortlessly manage open fields.
Provided with a 4-year warranty, this newly launched tractor is poised to instigate a transformative shift in the development of the local agricultural industry.
