World technologies at the Countrywide Field Day

Over 3,000 participants and 300 agricultural enterprises from 70 regions of Russia took part in the Countrywide Field Day 2018 (Lipetsk oblast) to introduce their latest developments and share firsthand experience with other guests.

The event was dedicated to high technologies, equipment and machinery.

‘Today, Russia’s agricultural sector is one of the most innovative and high-tech’, says Oleg Korolev, Governor of Lipetsk oblast. ‘Life quality improvement largely depends on agriculture.’

AgroCentre’s booth displayed a wide range of equipment, spare parts and intellectual developments of the worldrenowned brands: Challenger, Fendt, Massey Ferguson and JCB.

‘Our dealer centres operate in 19 regions of Russia. AgroCentre’s mission is not just to supply our clients with advanced machines, but to provide them with full technical support’, says Sergey Lomantsov, Executive Director of AgroCentreLiski. ‘We are constantly striving to promote the latest developments, so that the farmers could achieve impressive results.’

AgroCentre’s partners and clients had a tour of the company’s booth, discussed the latest developments with the specialists and outlined new prospects of cooperation.

‘Today, the customers can buy any machine, however, they cannot use it efficiently if they are not provided with comprehensive after-sales support’, emphasises Vladimir Stebakov, self-employed entrepreneur, Head of Stebakov agricultural enterprise (Oryol oblast). ‘AgroCentre offers us complete technical support and always helps us out.’

The Fendt 1050 tractor, which was demonstrated both at the booth and in the field, attracted special attention of the visitors. The Fendt 1050 and 936 tractors took part in the machinery parade, so the guests could properly assess their manoeuvrability in action.

‘The Fendt 936 tractor is the best-selling model in Russia’, shares Sergey Lomantsov. ‘The machine is equipped with the stepless Vario transmission and the cost-effective six-cylinder Deutz engine, featuring a 7.8-litre cubic capacity.’

The primary innovation is the combination of new engine technologies with the optimised continuously variable Vario transmission – here the best of the best come together.

The Massey Ferguson 6713 tractor remains deservedly popular among the farmers. The model is fitted with the fourcylinder 132 hp AGCO Power engine with a turbocharger, which features a 4.4-litre cubic capacity. The engine performance ensures increased torque at low revs, thus improving fuel efficiency and making the machine more costeffective. Moreover, it reduces parts wear and provides for a pleasantly low noise level, which makes the operator’s work very comfortable.

Demonstration of the JCB 531-70 Agri telescopic loader with the Auto Smooth Ride System (SRS) was the highlight of the event. The machine is equipped with the 100 hp JCB DieselMax. The maximum lift height is 7 m, the maximum lift capacity is 3,100 kg and 1,250 kg at the maximum lift height.

‘JCB 531-70 Agri with the SRS accounts for 90% of all JCB machinery sold in Russia’, shares Nikolay Kunitsyn, Head of Sales Department of AgroCentreLiski. ‘I would like to draw your attention to the JCB’s SRS, which reduces spillage of loose goods when moving on uneven surfaces and increases the service life of the JCB boom components. Besides, the boom of the telehandler is supplied with the lighting system, which allows you to work in an enclosed space.’

The telehandler is fitted with an engine heater unit, which is absolutely essential for work during the winter time. The engine section is located to the right so as to provide the operator with excellent visibility from the cab.
