AgLife: Traction Ag leading the way

Traction AG is inviting primary producers and contractors to its 2021 Product and Drive Day experience on March 3 and 4.

Business leaders have confirmed an ‘exciting’ showcase featuring new products from Massey Ferguson, Fendt, Gleaner, GSI, Challenger, Rogator, Hansa, Polaris, Cub Cadet and Wimmera GPS.

The Traction Ag team will also have other on-site product displays from PBSeeds, Sparex, Primary Sales and more.

General manager Vince Carbone said one of Traction AG’s main feature products this year included a working demonstration of the newly updated and innovative Croplands Weed-it Spray system.

“This machine is the best-selling optical-spot spraying system in Australia,” he said.

“With more than 13,000 optical-spot sensors already in use in Australian agriculture, this technology has opened up new opportunities for Australian farmers to reduce input costs and chemical use.”

Mr Carbone said Traction AG was also launching an exclusive. 

“For the first time in Australia, the recently released New Fendt 700 Gen 6 Series Tractor will be showcased and revealed at the Product and Drive Day,” he said.

The team has urged people to avoid missing out on the opportunity and to head along, see the exclusive display and take the tractor for a drive.

“Traction AG’s Rogator 1300C, with its massive 48-metre boom, will have plenty of room to show customers why it is the best self-propelled sprayer on the market for operation, innovation  and comfort,” Mr Carbone said. 

“With much excitement, Traction Ag is also proud to be launching a new product range – the Australian-owned-and-made Hansa range of heavy duty trailing and 3PL spreaders. 

“With current shortages of high-analysis phosphorous fertilisers, these spreaders will be in strong demand.

“The word is, ‘be quick, talk with a Hansa representative and grab an early-bird special’.”

Traction AG also has an exclusive for Victoria’s adrenaline junkies.

Mr Carbone said all-terrain racing legend Simon Evans would attend with his new Polaris RZR pro XP Ultimate and Traction AG was giving its customers the chance for the ultimate adrenaline rush.

“The team at Traction AG is busy building an on-site race track to match the excitement,” he said.

To win a lap on the race track, people can enter via the business’s Facebook by answering why ‘you need to feel the rush’.

“Traction AG’s innovative and progressive team has guaranteed we will have products on display for visitor enjoyment and hands-on experience,” Mr Carbone said.

“This is a great opportunity to catch up with the Traction AG team and enjoy some great food and refreshments. See you there.”
