EkoNiva meets its old friends at Agrosib

2014.11.10

This year, a real holiday atmosphere reigned supreme at the Agrosib exhibition in Novosibirsk. Farmers were enthusiastic about the good results of the past farming year and were looking forward to meetings with their colleagues. EkoNiva-Sibir cordially welcomed its partners like good friends of old standing.

As Vladimir Gorodetsky, Novosibirsk Oblast Governor, pointed out, this year the farmers have gathered over 2 million tonnes of grain of higher quality than last year’s. 

“In the last three years, around 4 billion rubles has been provided for the development of agriculture in the oblast,” says Vladimir Gorodetsky. “The bulk of funding was used for purchasing agricultural equipment. Practice shows that intense development of agriculture is only possible if there is technical re-equipment.”    

Industry leaders demonstrated at the exhibition over 300 units of farm machines from the world’s main manufacturers. 

EkoNiva-Sibir showed its customers a new tractor, the John Deere 6150M (150 hp). This new product appealed both to executives of major agricultural holdings and to individual farmers.

As explained by Aleksey Burkhovetsky, senior sales manager of EkoNiva-Sibir, it has an improved hydraulic system, optimised transmission and a premium class cabin, which make this tractor a real flagship among medium power machines.  

By using the upgraded transmission, it is now possible to automatically change gears within each operating range. The tractor hydraulic system has become more efficient (114 l/min) due to the increased throughput of the pump.  

John Deere designers also took care of the operator. Operating the tractor has become still more pleasant! The cabin is more spacious, with more effective noise reduction and visibility increased to 310°.
