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.
