High demand for Goldacres' Atrac M-Series tractors

Built on the body of Goldacres’ iconic sprayer range, the Atrac M-Series tractor range is proving adept in fertiliser spreading as well.

Demand is high for Goldacres’ tractor range, just about one year after the product’s official launch, with many taking advantage of its spreader-friendly design. 

Goldacres released its M Series of multi-purpose tractors under its Atrac brand last year, using some features and components from its existing self-propelled sprayer platform.

Currently comprising the M4, based on the Goldacres G4 self-propelled sprayer, and the M8, based on the G8 sprayer, the tractors boast a black and white livery – compared with the company’s traditional green.

Both the M8 and M4 prototypes have been built and have spreader bodies manufactured and fitted. The cab / chassis units are now available. 

The M4 has a 160 horsepower Cummins engine (119kW), offers a high clearance of 1,400mm and a 6.5 tonne carrying capacity, as well as an optional four-wheel drive that can be disengaged at the flick of a switch.

The M8 has an 817mm clearance with a 3m track with four wheel drive, alongside a 260hp (194kW) Cummins six-cylinder engine with an Allison 3000 series six-speed automatic transmission with electronic push button selector.

Marketed as a multi-purpose tractor, the Atrac M series models were built primarily as a platform to mount fertiliser spreader bodies, Goldacres says – though it adds that the possibilities are endless. 

Nonetheless, customers and dealers wanting to adapt the tractors for spreading will need to arrange a spreader body or suitable attachment to be fitted from a third party. 

To assist with this, Goldacres says it has formed a good relationship with Ballarat-based Southern Spreaders, which can tailor its installations to suit individual customers’ requirements.
