The new subcompact tractor series from Mahindra USA, will be ready to become your chore hand later this month. The tractors in the Mahindra Max series are small in size but big in capacity.
"Big in backhoe capacity, big in loader capacity, drive over mid mount deck, turn around seat on the backhoe, all of this can be factory installed," says Mac Payne, director of sales at Mahindra USA. "We’re very excited about the product."
Three machines make up the new lineup from Mahindra; the Max 22, Max 25, and the Max 28 XL that the company is calling a mid-compact tractor. The Max 22 and Max 25 have a 900 lb. loader capacity to the top of the lift. The Max 28 XL exceeds a 1400 lb loader capacity.
"When you’ve got a true frame and a heavy frame you can put a larger loader on there and have a bigger loader capacity," he says.
The tractor’s large loader capacity makes it a good option for moving product, hay and manure around the farm. It has the backhoe capability to do digging and a fabricated deck for mowing.
A true three point hitch on each machine in the new Max series allows farmer to use any tool they choose with the tractor and that is flexibility according to Payne.
"It has a full size three point hitch so box blading, rotary cutting, any of those kind of jobs are very well suited for the max," Payne
says. "It’s a true tractor in that compact size."
Payne says that the tractors attachments, mid mount mowers, loaders and backhoes, allow farmers a lot of versatility on the farm.
"I think that’s where the Max fits into the best, it’s a very versatile tractor," he says, "because it’s a true tractor, with a heavy frame and bigger tires gives us better stabilization and better traction."
He says the machines which made their official debut earlier this month in Galveston, Texas will be on the farm ready to work come spring.
