The company has only just started manufacturing compact track tractors, with the focus on minimising the soil compaction, a good power to weight ratio and maximum stability and traction on steep hills.

Its new AC track technology is designed for better oxygenation of the soil than is possible with wheels, and tracks generally perform much better on steep hills, or in wet condition when carrying heavy implements.

The Mach 2 has a weight of 2915kg and features an 87hp Yanmar engine.

Its intended use is within fruit orchards, hence the focus on low soil compaction, which is important to maximise fruit productivity.

David Richardson macadamia farmer David Richardson has been using Antonio Carraro tractors for years and is now using the Mach 2 to pull nut harvesters.

The general idea is that its tracks leave less marks on the terrain, so operators are able to pick up more nuts from the ground with the harvester in tow.

 "We choose this model of tractor because of the low profile," Richardson says. "It allows us to drive under the canopy, generating much lower soil compaction thanks to its low weight and the wider tyre configuration."

Antonio Carraro tractors have been sold in Australia for over 35 years, with the first machines being brought over from Italy in the mid-1970s.
