Mahindra’s Best Overall Performing Tractor Dealer – Neale Goad from Ballarat Vic Mahindra, considers the versatility of the range is Mahindra’s biggest strength.
“Ballarat is all potato farming one way, the other direction goes into sheep, and 50 kilometres in another direction goes into broadacre farming.
We’ve got that and a lot of lifestyle around us ranging between 0.40 and 16ha (1 and 40 acres). That’s why the Mahindra product suits us, we can have a little 18kW (25hp) for most gardening purposes, right up to the 74kW (100hp), that will do most farm applications, and everything in between.”
Anthony Mangold from Thompson’s Farm Gear at Wauchope was one of Australia’s first Mahindra tractor dealers back in 2007, and can see the brand’s values have continued.
“What we see in the new range are some very exciting new compacts, and some new models in the 44 to 66kW (60-90hp), and they seem to be still built on those principles that got Mahindra off to a good start in Australia.
The reasons we took them on, and the reasons a lot of our customers did in the early days too. I can see that people looking for those same benefits and features and still finding them in a modern Mahindra tractor now.”
