Farmtrac tractors are to be officially imported into the UK by Surrey Power Machines, based at Claygate, Surrey.

The Polish company has a manufacturing base in its home country and also sells smaller Indian-made models that meet EU regs. The £9,995 Ford-derived Farmtrac 535, for instance, has a 33hp engine, an 8×2 mechanical transmission and folding rollbar and looks well suited to yard duties.

Next up from that is the Farmtrac 555 and 555DT with 3 cylinder, 48hp AVL engine, 8+2 constant-mesh mechanical transmissions, 2wd or 4wd and either cab or rollbar.

The 4wd Premium range (70-110hp) uses more familiar components like Carraro axles, ZF transmissions and Perkins engines. The cab has optional air-con and the tractor meets Tier3a emissions regs.

The Farmtrac FT 670DT has a four-cylinder 66hp engine and 12+12 transmission, while the FT675 has a 75hp version with Carraro 12 +12 mechanical transmission and synchro shuttle.

Go up the power range and you come to the FT685 DT with 82hp 4-cylinder Perkins engine, 24/24 gearbox and Carrraro transmission and the FT690 DT with 88hp Perkins engine and 24/24 transmission. At the top of the range are the Farmtrac FT7100 DT with 98hp and 16/16 gearbox with powershift and the FT7100 DT with 110 hp and powershift.
