Multi-Purpose Tractor For Orchard, Groves
It features a unique tricycle design, plus a reversible seat and tilting steering column which enable it to be operated in either direction with no inconvenience to the operator. Offset design puts the operator and controls to the right of center, permitting safer, close-in work under branches. A category 1, 3-pt. hitch with drawbar and independent 540 RPM power take-off handles most standard attachments, either pull or push type.
Its 43 in. height, plus a wide (62 in.) drive wheel tread, give the Omni-Trac exceptional stability for safe use with high-lift attachments, such as pruning towers. The combination of a full-pivot caster wheel and independent hydrostatic steering to each drive wheel permits a turning radius of only 8 1/2 ft. Convenient direction-reversing controls, either hand or foot operated, enable the operator to maneuver the Omni-Trac while simultaneously operating a forklift or other attachment.
The new-style tractor is available with a choice of 49 hp 4-cyl. gas, or 44 hp 4-cyl. diesel engine. A hydrostatic transmission, and hydraulic drive motors in each wheel, provide smooth power and infinite ground speeds from 0 to 10 mph.
