Mitsubishi mini tractor MT 180D

Choosing the right tractor can be as daunting a task as choosing the right car. We were in the market for a new tractor a couple of months back and after thorough research and analysis we went ahead with Mitsubishi  mini tractor MT 180.
Since the initial ploughing and development was completed by local tractors, we wanted a tractor for the "maintenance" mode that could maneuver through the closely spaced Mango UHD and Melia Dubia plantations.




































Various implements can be attached to these types of tractor - Rotavator, 5 Finger and Disc Plough and Hydraulic Trolley. I would not recommend using the Disc Plough (for first time breaking of soil) with this tractor since the machine is relatively less powerful with 18 hp motor. However, implements for maintenance operations like 5 Finger Plough and Rotavator could be used when enough moisture is present.
In Tamil Nadu, tractors less than 39 hp qualify for government subsidy. In Sivagangai district, MT 180 was eligible for a maximum subsidy of Rs 1.25 lakhs (tractor costs approx Rs 2.8 lakhs exclusive of subsidy)

Apart from this, a fertigation pump can also be attached for easy spraying.




















The pump has an inlet, outlet, and a bypass lever. Recommended pressure is 2.5 kg/cm2. It can be easily attached/detached from the back of the driver's seat. In the next couple of weeks, we are planning on spraying the plants. Will post a video regarding the operations of the pump.

  2. You should consider some biodiesel plantation for peak oil preparedness sake.

  3. It would be great if you bought a tractor that has features which will help you in your work, like, pump sprayers. It’s great right? Just make sure that you regularly maintain your machine so that you can keep it in good condition.

    1. I do not think 18 hp will be powerful enough for paddy fields - especially in the clayey soil. It is best if you check with the co.
