Tough workhorses get new stablemates

By Dairy News

OVER THE past 10 years, the heavy hitters in Mahindra’s range have forged an ironclad reputation for bulletproof toughness and durability, all thanks to the design of the tractors.

The Mahindra 8000 series 80 hp tractor has been the bedrock of the Mahindra Australia tractor range since 2012.

Selling more than 500 units in Australia, it has been well-regarded for its solid and durable no-nonsense maintenance and reputation for being able to handle the tough stuff.

The factory has worked on improving the ergonomics of the 8000/9000 series by a total sheet metal re-design, while keeping the engine, transmission and hydraulics of the original 8000 series tractor.

With the latest 80 and 92 hp offerings, Mahindra has kept all the things its customers loved about the utility tractor range — like the quality steel, good-sized wheel equipment and hydraulics, and solid planetary 4 x 4 reduction — but added a few notable improvements.

The New Mahindra 7580 80 hp and 7590 92 hp are more than 3.6 tonne in tractor weight with 12.4 x 24 fronts and 18.4 x 30 rears, and are ideal for primary and secondary tillage, livestock operations, crop protection, haulage and loader applications and a myriad of other field applications.

At the heart of both machines is a turbocharged, inter-cooled, four-cylinder, in-line diesel engine designed for three things: reliability, fuel efficiency and a big flat torque curve, reaching 326 Nm on the 7590.

Both models feature twin remotes, two-speed PTOs (540/1000 rpm) and even heavier builds for greater traction and longevity, and they exemplify the most famous Mahindra traits — uncomplicated design and operation, ruggedness and versatility in any situation, as well as bulletproof, no-nonsense simplicity.

The new Mahindra 7580 and 7590 are assembled in Brisbane and are available now at more than 40 dealers nationwide.
