care­ful craft­ing

Er­gonomic de­sign has been the fo­cus of Mahin­dra’s new 7580 and 7590 4WD se­ries trac­tors

Two higher horse­power util­ity trac­tors launched re­cently by Mahin­dra Ag & Auto Aus­tralia have a bet­ter er­gonomic de­sign to com­ple­ment their in­creased strength, the com­pany has an­nounced.

Mahin­dra’s new 7580 and 7590 4WD se­ries trac­tors, with 80hp (59.6kW) and 92hp (68.6kW) re­spec­tively, are de­signed to build on its al­ready suc­cess­ful Mahin­dra 8000 se­ries, which has sold over 500 units in Aus­tralia to date.

The com­pany says both of the mod­els, each weigh­ing over

3.6 tonnes, are ideal for pri­mary and sec­ondary tillage, live­stock op­er­a­tions, crop pro­tec­tion, haulage and loader ap­pli­ca­tions and a myr­iad of other field ap­pli­ca­tions.

The new mod­els fea­ture a re­design of the fuel tank – easy to ac­cess on the left hand side of the trac­tor, and the bat­tery box, ac­ces­si­ble from the right.

A flat plat­form also make ac­cess to the cabin eas­ier – the com­pany promis­ing no more trip­ping over the trans­mis­sion hump or other levers – while a stan­dard 12 for­ward and 12 re­verse speeds helps to max­imise per­for­mance.

Both trac­tors have a lift ca­pac­ity of 2,500kg and a to­tal op­er­at­ing weight of 3,618kg.

“At the heart of both ma­chines is a tur­bocharged in­ter­cooled four-cylin­der in-line diesel de­signed for three things: re­li­a­bil­ity, fuel ef­fi­ciency and a big flat torque curve, reach­ing 326Nm on the 7590,” Mahin­dra says

“Both mod­els fea­ture twin re­motes, two-speed power take offs [540/1000 rpm] and even heav­ier builds for greater trac­tion and longevity.”

As­sem­bled in Bris­bane and now avail­able at over 40 deal­ers na­tion­wide, the new mod­els keep the 8000’s pop­u­lar trans­mis­sion, wheel equip­ment and hy­draulics while also em­bark­ing on a to­tal sheet metal re-de­sign – us­ing the qual­ity steel the com­pany is known for.

The steel pro­vides the trac­tors with a solid op­er­at­ing plat­form in con­junc­tion with good sized wheel equip­ment for a more sta­ble op­er­a­tion in hilly con­di­tions, Mahin­dra says.

“A strong weighty plat­form in con­junc­tion with good hy­draulics also pro­vides bet­ter lift ca­pac­ity on front end self­level load­ers and three-point link­age,” it adds.

The Mahin­dra 7590 util­ity trac­tor has a lift ca­pac­ity of 2,500kg.
