Not bad, looks good by tractor standards. Looks pretty practical as well.

Cummon guys, well I admit it is kind of errrrr Path breaking, but it is good, at least the farmers have some space to carry the fertiliser bags without attaching a trolley. And this looks some what more civilised than the regular fare.

Ok, I now have confirmation that the Mahindra Shaan is in production. It was in the news in the local newspapers in Nagpur. The tractor is being produced in the Nagpur plant and is powered by a 23.5 HP engine. It has an inbuilt trolley to transport agri produce and can carry passengers too.

It comes complete with a canopy, windscreen and wipers! It has a slick driver's cabin, down swept exhaust, back-lit instrument cluster and a maximum speed of 39.5 kmph. The trolley has a load carrying capacity of 750 kgms.

Now that's innovation for you from Mahindra!

UGH! A mentally challenged kid could have put together a better looking Lego model than this 'THING'. I suppose this is a 'DC Creation'?

And we're raving about it???? That HMT Trantor thing looks like it came from 20 years into the future in comparison with this matchbox construction.

Shaan or SHAME?

vin, the trantor was in the news sometime back.
From the looks of these two, the two are in different categories.
