Everything is going Mini so why not our farm equipments, and hence the answer is Ustad mini tractor from Greaves Cotton, which is being priced in the range of Rs 2 lakh to Rs. 2.4 lakh for the area measuring most probably 3-5 acres.
It is powered with a Greaves G 600 W II engine wobbling out 11-12 hp, as per its entry level range, and a massive torque of 32 Nm at its peak. Overall, it is said, Ustad consumes low fuel, slated to be around 1 liter of diesel/hour, which can be termed to be the cool output due to 4 stroke direct injection single cylinder engine.
2 reverse and 8 forward gears, sealed water proof mechanical brakes, pawl and ratchet type locking system, 2.1 meter turning radius are some of the features that makes this entry level offering a true “Ustad” in its entire range.
It is not that all what the Ustad stores in itself, but there some more of tricks underneath, and can be named as, three point linkage feature allowing to attach multiple applications like haulage, cultivator, seed drill etc.
Commenting on the launch, Mr. Sunil Pahilajani, MD & CEO, said, “The launch of Greaves Ustad is a testimony of our continuous focus on new product development and innovation. It symbolizes our commitment of providing the farming community a value for money product backed by a strong after market support.”
