A leading agro-industrial company says tractors that can handle tough Zimbabwean farming conditions and provide state-of-the-art performance for their owners are essential for the ongoing development of agriculture in Zimbabwe.

The arrival of the New Holland TT35 two-wheel drive tractors was expected to boost efforts by small-scale farmers to contribute to that development by increasing productivity.
In a statement Bain New Holland marketing officer Mary Machingaidze, said: “Our customers spoke and we listened, hence the arrival of an affordable tractor that offers international credentials and local suitability.
“Season 2012-2013 is almost here and the new tractors will assist farmers in their efforts to increase production and help Zimbabwe become the bread basket of the region.”
According to the company this brand new “champion of the small-scale farmer” brings with it a wealth of international success as a tractor that would fit in well with local small-scale farming expectations and requirements.
New Holland tractors are imported by Bain New Holland, a division of William Bain, one of Zimbabwe’s leading agro-industrial organisations with nearly a century of service experience to the farmers of this country.
About the tractor
The TT35 tractor is 35 horsepower and comes in either two-wheel or four-wheel drive. These units offer an attractive combination of power, speed, lift capacity and pulling strength, with a high degree of fuel efficiency.
Its three-cylinder engine provides power and reduced emissions, and the 60-litre fuel tank allows for longer operational use. These units follow the New Holland styling pattern which allows for good visibility by operators and the flip hood allows easy access to service areas, with no grills and panels needing to be moved. They come with an optional 8×8 transmission which will make it easier to shuttle shift from forward to reverse.
