Identification

Solectrac Electric Tractor eFarmer is a clean, quiet, zero-emission alternative to under 40HP diesel tractors especially made for small size organic farmers.

It can be charged by renewable energy, such as wind and solar, and provide all the power of a comparable diesel tractor. The eFarmer has a front hitch for loader or reaper, a mid hitch for bed preparation and cultivation with total visibility and a rear hitch and 540rpm PTO for any Category ! Any of the hitches can also load and carry exchangeable battery packs to extend run time and balance the weight of implements. The eFarmer uses linear actuators to lift the hitches. These electric actuators are 10 times more efficient than the hydraulic lifts on diesel tractors and have no toxic fluid to leak on crops. The front and rear wheel tract is adjustable from 40" to 72" to work on the different width planting beds used by row crop farmers. The eFarmer has 18" of ground clearance to allow cultivation without damaging crops.
