AgroCentre presented machinery catering to the needs of both private growers and large-scale holdings at Oryol Field Day.

The Massey Ferguson 6713 tractor is a sought-after machine. Farmers formed a queue to get behind the wheel. According to industry experts, the machine is a worthy alternative to Belarus tractors in the medium-power tractor range, having an edge due to the low total cost of ownership, i.e. operating costs after purchase.

‘The tractor is outfitted with high-end technology, yet requires lower investment when it comes to servicing and spare parts as compared to the competitors’, says Sergey Shcherbatov, Manager of Sales Department of Oryol Branch of AgroCentreLiski.

The Fendt 1000 Series is an intelligent machine not afraid to get dirty. No rival can boast of similar features.

‘The transmission features two valves, on the front and rear axle each, which can be prioritised for the dual-circuit high-capacity hydraulics, thus eliminating slippage’, says Sergey Shcherbatov. ‘The tractor determines which axle has no grip and automatically shifts torque to the other axle. And that is standard equipment. The cab with triple air cushioning and an independent front axle suspension enables the operator to have a comfortable ride even at high speeds.’

The Kverneland baler is a true find for livestock specialists. It delivers uniform density across the entire bale thus preventing moisture from getting in and resulting in better-quality forage.

‘Counterparts with fixed chambers make a bale with a looser middle, where more bacteria develop, so the hay is of inferior quality’, says Sergey Shcherbatov.
