Multi Tool Trac reduces farmer’s work and enables them to be more efficient and sustainable while utilizing the soil more profitably.
We do this by building the first electric tractor. It has a complete electric powertrain, a unique on-the-fly track width adjustment, and five positions for all common tools and agricultural equipment (three with hitch and PTO. A modern diesel engine with 160 kW (210 Hp) is used as range extender.
Large machines increase the capacity in arable farming, but on the other hand, they cause soil compaction at the cost of harvest quantity and quality. Controlled Traffic Farming (CTF) is a very good solution to this problem. CTF at 3 meter combines the advantages of CTF with minimal loss of land for tracks. Together with farmers we developed the Multi Tool Trac to be the standard tractor for use in 3 meter CTF.
The main feature of the Multi Tool Trac is the ability to adjust the track gauge from 3.20 meter on the field to 2.25 on the road. The narrower gauge is required for safety on public roads. Our solution is a unique – on the fly – adjustable gauge system.
The second feature is a long wheelbase to fit all equipment in between the front and rear wheels. This results in unique visibility for the driver on the crops and a very stabilized machine.
On top of this we opted for an electric powertrain. Electric power is perfect for traction, and high precision driving. We believe that in the future all tractors will be electric. Many famers have already laid the foundation for electric drive on their farm by investing in solar and wind power.
The first prototype Multi Tool Trac is built in 2015, the second in 2017. Both have been tested extensively since then.
With the results we are now redesigning the Multi Tool Trac for series production. This third machine will be ready November 2019. For 2020 we plan the start of series production of this Multi Tool Trac.
