India sends first batch of small and medium-power tractor prototypes to Russia

India has sent its first shipment of small and medium-power tractor prototypes to Russia, which have arrived at the Volga Combine Plant. The arrival of these tractors marks the beginning of a new partnership between the two countries.

The TKS 90 is a type of tractor used in agriculture that is narrow and able to drive between bushes, making it useful for work in greenhouses. Russia’s Ministry of Business and Commerce has even received a request from the Federal Ministry of Agriculture for such machines.

The shipment includes a total of more than 50 vehicles, including TKS-90, TKS-75, and TK-90, which are wheeled tractors with engines ranging in power from 40 to 90 horsepower. The corporate is currently conducting an intensive inspection of these tractors, which will need to be “run in” on the manufacturing floor before being put into service.

According to Ivan Ilyin, head of the Volga Mix Plant’s workshop for assembling wheels and tractors, the initial assessment of the tractors should take 4-5 moto-hours to complete. The company will be checking everything, including the front and rear axles, and the first impression is excellent. The tractors are compact, highly effective, and designed for the operator’s comfort and local weather management.

The trial batch of tractors will be dispersed throughout various climatic zones in Russia, so that Moscow can determine what different requirements need to be considered when localizing these tractors in Russia. The Indian partners, ITL, are one of the world’s largest tractor plants, producing hundreds of thousands of machines per year and exporting them to 140 countries worldwide. The company has experience in organizing similar meeting crops in Algeria, Brazil, and Turkey, and will now be in Russia.

The full-cycle manufacturing expertise at the Volga Mix Plant will allow for small and medium-power wheeled tractors to be assembled in Cheboksary this spring. The goal is to manufacture a minimum of 3000 vehicles per year in-house, with approximately 80% of those tractors to be produced in Cheboksary by 2033.
