Great, i am sure you could have settled with a 2WD (regular one), but did you like the 4WD ?
Is booking done in TVM?

Exactly.. The tractor I booked today is

Mitsubishi-Shakti MT180D Tractor

This is one of the smallest tractors that ever produced in India with 18.5BHP 3cyl diesel engine (I'm not talking about tillers) and comes with 4WD (High and Low) and differntial lock and loads of excellent features.

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)

No dude, it is a tractor which comes with a cultivator. Infact other farm related equipments for this tractor is available as option and readily available with the dealer.

This is a start of new age 4x4 era at rural areas

The other 4x4 tractor available on the shelve is Jone Deere one but above 5.5L budget.
