Must have

At International Kursk Korenskaya trade fair, the local branch of AgroCentre appeared in all its glory. This year, over ten thousand people have visited the exhibition venue Svoboda village (Kursk region, Zolotukhinsky district). AgroCentre presented its top models of machinery produced by the leading agricultural manufacturers, as well as precision farming systems and the best genuine oils on offer.

‘Big guns’

Fendt and Massey Ferguson machinery manufactured by AGCO corporation was presented ‘in the front line’. Scores of people lined up to get behind the steering wheel of the novelties.

The MF 6713 tractor, a heavyweight among the mid-range tractors, is capable of competing with global counterparts due to its smooth running without any overheating issues, a user-friendly operating system and Russian assembly which makes it eligible for subsidies.

The Fendt 1000, the most powerful conventional tractor, claims success with its appearance. The farmers appreciated the total illuminating power. And the sales managers outlined its integrated functions providing the model with a competitive edge over rivals.

‘The tractor comes fitted with its own GPS system’, says Roman Starodubtsev, Sales Manager of Kursk Branch of AgroCentreLiski. ‘Pneumatic cab suspension increases operator comfort and productivity. The model features an independent front axle suspension which guarantees constant contact with the ground and prevents power-hopping. As a result, the best pulling power is achieved enabling the machine to go faster and handle bigger implements.’

Other popular models at the trade fair included the Top Down cultivator from Vaderstad designed for heavy- and middle-textured soils for primary tillage without soil turning and the JCB 535-95 telescopic handler with PowerBoom which has been globally recognized for many years now.
