EDITORIAL – New Zealand Lifestyle Farmer.
Far more versatile than a ride on mower, a compact tractor can transform a lifestyle block. Up until now, the prices of quality brands have often been prohibitive – but not anymore. SOTA Tractors will release its range of remanufactured compact tractors at field days. They have been purpose built for lifestyle farmers with safety and performance as the main criteria.
The machines are fully supported through local SOTA dealers who advise on safety, usage, implements, servicing and so on – similar to a new machine. Originally Japanese domestic tractors, they have been stripped down and rebuilt to a fixed specification. Key components of the engine, brakes and running gear are inspected and replaced as required.
Parts renewed as standard include: paint, badging and safety decals, battery, roll bar, upholstery, tyres and the three point linkage. So extensive is the refurbishment that they look like a new tractor. Better still, they’re about half price!
