2) Scout T-15
The Russian company Scout has been manufacturing agricultural machinery since 2008. The company manufactures all spare parts in China, but assembles them in Russia, after which it redirects the finished products to its branches in the CIS and Poland.
Scout T-15 is considered the basic model of mini-tractors for small farms. The dimensions of the model are slightly different from the previous one - 2.4 by 1.35 m, height 1.09 m, and the weight is 70 kg more - 540 kg. In the basic kit, the manufacturer installs weights of 116 kg with a reinforced frame. The single-cylinder diesel engine produces 14.85 horsepower. It starts thanks to an electric starter. To protect against overloads, there is a belt drive, which is a transitional link between the clutch and the engine itself. In the event of an overload, the motor will not be deformed - the entire impact will be driven.
The manual transmission is equipped with a planetary gear, as well as a rear axle locking system. 4 gears: three for speed, one reverse, there are also upshifts and downshifts. Wheels 16 and 10 inches. You can install chains on the rear wheels so that the device does not slip. The track adjustment is from 1.1 m to 1.4 m, this is more than enough for the mini-tractor to be able to drive between the beds without hitting them.
Equipment can be connected using a single-point rear attachment. Hydraulic system with four modes, one of which is a floating position. During float operation, the implement sinks into the ground under its own weight. The hinged system can withstand up to 190 kg inclusive. Of the attachments, the tractor can work with a plow, a mower, a seeder, a snow blade and a rototiller. The car is equipped with low and high beams, there are turn signals and a dashboard that shows the temperature, the amount of coolant and an ammeter.
Pros Scout T-15:
- A large number of nozzles
- reinforced frame
- Hydraulic system single-line
- Missing hour sensor
Price - 160,000 rubles
3) MTZ Belarus 132N
The oldest model in this rating of mini-tractors for the economy - MTZ Belarus 132N - ranks third.
The device has been produced at the Minsk Tractor Plant since 1992. Before the release of this model, there were two more that have already been discontinued. The dimensions of the unit are 2.5 by 1 m. The height to the steering wheel is 1.2 m, to the end of the arc - 2 m. The weight is 532 kilograms. The tractor has 13 horsepower and a single-cylinder four-stroke gasoline-powered Honda engine. (brand not lower than AI-92, otherwise the equipment may fail) and launched using an electric starter.
The gearbox is mechanical, with seven speeds: four forward, three reverse. To reduce the turning radius, a system of inter-wheel differential lock was provided. The main difference between this mini-tractor and the previous ones is the same wheel diameter (from 5.9 to 13 inches).
It uses a three-point method of connecting attachments. And the active one must be connected to the shaft, which is needed for power take-off. The maximum rotation speed of a single-speed shaft is 1200 rpm. The tractor works with attachments such as a snow blower, plow, mower, hay mower, blade, hiller.
- Four-wheel drive
- Reliable engine
- Three-point method of connecting attachments
- Oil in the hydraulic system may overheat
