Featuring tracks on the rear the 91hp articulated tractor took centre stage on Marshall Machinery Sales and Auto Repairs site at the annual event. The futuristic looking tractor attracted loads of attention from an inquisitive crowd.

The SkyJump V95 will perform a week of demonstrations in Tasmania before making its way to Mirco Brothers Machinery in Western Australia.

Mirco Bros Machinery is a Western Australia based supplier of tractors and agricultural implements serving WA’s vegetable, horticultural and vigneron industries since 1972.

It features rubber tracks on the rear, pneumatic wheels at the front and a dual-steer system that combines central-chassis articulation with the front-turning wheels.  The dual-steer system provides it with an exceptional turning radius.

It is claimed that its rear tracks allow it to achieve traction up to 60 percent better than a wheel tractor on steep terrain.

Its low centre of gravity and short wheel base, in combination with the grip and stability of its rear tracks, makes it perfect for work in vineyards and orchards with tight working spaces and steep slopes. The SkyJump has a narrow track of just 1.35m.

A 91hp, four-cylinder, VM common rail direct injection diesel engine drives the SkyJump. It features 32-speed synchronised gearbox (16F/16R) with synchronised reverser.

Marshall Machinery Sales and Auto Repairs machinery sales specialist Jeremy Karlovsky says they could not be happier that Mirco Brothers-entrusted, Tasmanian-based dealership with launching the new Ferrari SkyJump to the Australian public.  

"It has attracted heaps of interest and solid enquiry over the course of the field days.

"With its rear tracks and articulated frame it offers so much more than its rigid chassis all wheeled competitors."

Farms and Farm Machinery test reviewer Tom Dickson will take it for a test drive while it’s still in Tasmania and put together a full review for Farms and Farm Machinery magazine and TradeFarmMachinery.com.au
