The company who produce this tractors are "VST Tillers Tractors Ltd.", this is a Joinventure between VST Motors (Remember India Garage) and Mitsubishi, Japan.

My laptop is caught with issue and with the service guys, allow me to take one or two days to write a TD report with pictures as I need to download them from my mobile.

Meanwhile, pay your visit to this url which says all about the tractor's techanical details. (checkout the applicaitons link too)

Congratulations. VST tillers and tractors is based in Bangalore, Mahadevapura.

Man, it looks real cute. Hope its adequately powered & stable for all the farming needs (even though you have mentioned it).

Also, I like this idea of getting into farming Wish I too can have a lil farm like yours sometime.

Apart from the farming, the tractor will do duty on the road once in a while and we need something that can go atleast 30-35 kph (which the conventional ones should do comfortably in top gear).
Hi Wanderlust,
You Need minimum 35 BHP Tractor which can plough and can handle 7 Pin Cultivator. You can go for second hand Massey 35 or Swaraj 735. Good tractor will not cost you more than 2 lacs.

@Trammway - we have a mango farm too, but its in Gujarat, we recently purchased another tractor a few months ago, our old tractor is an escort and is over 15 years old, and still runs great,its just under capacity for us. We bought a 55 HP John Deere with power steering and 2wd, we were advised to go against the 4 wd as we didn't need it for farm work and would consume a lot of diesel. We didn't know too much about tractors because we are from Bombay, but the neighbouring farm people were very helpful.

Will post some pics tomorrow, they are on the other computer.

We currently have a hmt 5911 and it has been serving us well for the last 10+ years not matter what kind of load or tilling no issues what so ever. But that things fuel consumption is off the charts. For the ones that dont know tractor fuel consumption is usually calculated in number of liters in number of hours.

But all things set aside so much tractor talk going on and no one mentioned the king "New Holland" tractors?

I wish to buy a John Deere or the higher capacity tractors but the thing I wanted to try self farming and wanted to try something smaller to get the feel of it. Slowly I will upgrade my farm and equipments, may be the small tractor then converted to spray machine alone.

Yeah, I did notice the tractor's fuel consumption mentioned in somewhat similar manner. Can anyone tell me this in liter measure

S.F.C. (Specific Fuel Consumption) 230 gm/hp-hr

We should be happy that the farming and agriculture talks are started going on around the internet and more youngsters from urban area is looking at farming opportunities.

+1 to the farming and youngsters thing.

I don't know much about SFC, but a quick google result showed this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Specifi...mption_(thrust)

From my experience on the farm I can say that our tractor averages about 6 - 7 liters of diesel per hour of usage, the difference depends on what kind of use it is.

I suggest you go for a John Deere only when you are ready to upgrade, I test drove several tractors and we picked the John Deere, it has power steering and basically the product quality is way superior than the ones around. And plus we make castings for them

I am posting some pics of my John Deere, we don;t self farm since that is not our predominant industry and cannot spare time to do so, but I do love driving around in the farm on the tractor, it is a lot of fun.
