Inlon adds new TYM tractors, upgrades Strautmann mixer

Inlon has hit the ground running to start 2024, bringing new TYM tractors to Australia while welcoming upgrades to Strautmann feed mixers

An official launch event for new utility cabin tractor models TYM T68 and T78 was held at the main office of Australian distributor Inlon earlier this year.

In addition to the new tractors, TYM dealers from across Australia also got their first look at the recently remodelled TS25 and T2900HST compact tractors.

Three representatives from TYM Korea travelled to Australia as part of a factory delegation and learned more about the local market.

“After the inevitable ‘pandemic lull’ in new production models, TYM is making up for lost time, with four new models released in the last six months and two more to come in 2024,” Inlon’s sales and marketing manager Gary Surman says.

“It was an opportunity for the delegation to speak with dealers and hear about the great customer experiences, new product ideas and needs of the Australian market.”

The TYM TS25 and T2900 ROPS tractors are described by Surman as being “welcome additions to the compact tractor market”.

Both offer auto throttle and HST simplifying operation, while their heavy-duty front axle, longer wheelbase and large industrial front and rear tyres give extra stability when lifting and loading.

TYM’s other additions – the new TYM T68 and T78 cabin tractors – are powered by the German-built Deutz TCD 2.9L turbo diesel intercooled engine, which is fuel efficient, reliable and powerful, with a dual dry-element air cleaner for Australia’s dusty conditions.

The four-cylinder engine produces an impressive 67hp and 75hp respectively and only 2200 engine rpm for optimal fuel efficiency.

“Importantly, the electronic engine governor holds the set engine rpm, under varying loads, delivering the maximum power of the engine when required, without rpm droops or spikes,” Surman says.

“This is ideal for PTO work, as the PTO speed is maintained without loss of rpm up to the maximum power rating.

“In comparison, an engine with a mechanical governor experiences rpm droops and spikes as the load varies in operation.”

Power shuttle transmission for the TYM T68 is 24-speed, with 18 speeds under 10km/h and 16 speed, with 11 speeds under 10km/h for the T78.”

Distributed Australia-wide by Inlon, the TYM T68 tractor loader package starts from $74,900 while the TS25 starts from $20,713 for the tractor only.

Mixer innovation

Strautmann, another brand represented in Australia by Inlon, has continued its innovation and development of its feed mixer range.

Now in its fourth generation, Strautmann has introduced its new Intensive Mix System auger.

Strautmann pioneered the development of the stepped auger which better agitates, lifts and loosens feed material, for a faster mixing time, uniformity and lower power requirements.

With the new IMS, Strautmann has increased the number of steps, making them smaller and more frequent.

The steps now occur every 60 degrees of auger angle rather than the previous 90 degrees, which the manufacturer says accelerates the mixing process while using less power and reducing wear on the auger.

Strautmann also has a patented knife adjustment system, and this means the IMS auger can be adapted to specific feed components that need increased cutting in the mixing process, such as straw and complete round bales.

The knives are available in two lengths and their working angle can be set according to whether an aggressive cutting action or mixing is needed.

A mix of knife types and angles can be arranged along the auger flight.

A special mounting position is available for the top auger knife which enables it to more aggressively and quickly break up complete bales that are loaded into the bowl.

“The stepped design gives fast, low horsepower mixing because the steps lift and loosen the fodder as it mixes, creating a uniform feed ration without over processing,” Strautmann product manager for feed mixing technology Andreas Haggeney says.

“Tests comparing traditional pure smooth spiral augers with the stepped flight auger have showed considerably reduced power consumption with the stepped design.”

The German-built product has performed strongly on Australian farms for over 30 years and is set to go to a new level thanks to the latest upgrades.

Strautmann offers a wide variety of Verti-Mix models with capacities between 7 and 45 cubic metres, ensuring there is a mixer to suit farms and feedlots of all sizes.

Customers can choose from single, twin and triple auger configurations plus a range of discharge doors and conveyor options.

By providing a high quality total mixed ration, Strautmann says the whole herd will benefit from optimum nutrition.

Uniformly mixed feed provides better weight gain, fertility and improved feed efficiency with the potential to lower cost and wastage, the company adds.
