My first new compact tractor

By | May 14, 2019

I had been using a second-hand compact tractor at my hobby farm for quite a while. But it lacked plenty of the functionalities & features which I could have made cultivation at my hobby farm more convenient & quicker. I needed a more versatile & capable machine for my farm, that is when I came across Solis compact tractor upon a friend’s recommendation. I didn’t know that Solis was basically a modern name the known tractor brand Sonalika had adopted. After a quick online search about Solis tractor, I came across Solis 26 tractor which I eventually ended up buying. Here’s are the features of Solis 26 tractor that made me buy it.

If we talk about towing & pulling capacity, Solis26 tractor is at the top among its kind.  With a great towing capacity of 1600 kg, this Solis compact tractor pulls even a trailer full of heavy loads across the farm with magnificence & ease.

Talking about the lifting capability of this Solis compact tractor, it comes with a lifting force of 600 kg due to the added 6 HP in the model. You can easily remove heavy debris, clear out snow-covered roads, or lift heavy logs at your farm.

In relation to using implements, Solis 26 tractor comes with a standard 3 point CAT system. This system can attach plenty of implements at the back & the front as well. Also, Solis compact tractors come with a single pinch system for easy detaching of implements. Implements such as cultivator to prepare the soil for farm cultivation, a rotary slasher for shrub management are the two implements I have been using on my compact farm. This Solis compact tractor functions well with even the professional farming implements.

Talking about the engine, Solis 26 tractor is provided with a torque 3-cylinder Mitsubishi diesel engine which is powerful as well as fuel efficient. Also, comes with a swift shift 6 forward, 2 reverse speed gearbox. With my old tractor, I never got a sufficient power supply & it barely managed to maintain sufficient pace even on regular terrain.

Another important factor that impressed me is its agility & manoeuvrability. Solis compact tractors are constructed such that they can move around easily on a narrow farm. The Solis 26 tractor can turn at a sick turning radius of 2.1 meters. Also, the track width of this tractor is ideal for a personal farm.

The most exciting feature of Solis 26 tractor is that it comes with power handling while most of the compact farm tractors don’t have this option. Further, it comes with oil breaking system which provides greater control while dealing with uneven terrain. Talking about its ride, the silent engine of this Solis compact tractor makes the ride a smooth experience.

It’s been a year since I bought my Solis 26 tractor & I am more than satisfied with its performance & versatility. I have been able to cultivate larger portions at my field & maintain my yard as well. And although I am a rash driver, the durable frame of this Solis tractor has endured every abuse without ever once breaking down. So, to those out there looking for a compact farm tractor for their hobby farm, I would recommend that you go for Solis 26 tractor. If you want something in slightly less price range, you can go for Solis S 20. Offering a slightly less HP, this compact tractor is as versatile & powerful in its features.
