Arbos displays all its power in Spain!!

In the last edition of FIMA 2018, the Lovol Arbos Group showed all its power with a fantastic stand in FIMA with the aim of showing all tractors and implements. Besides, Arbos took the opportunity to launch its new 7000 Series. Arbos (Italian manufactured) has a range of power on its tractor from 40HP to 260HP. Regarding tractors, also Arbos exhibited other interesting tractors like 4111Q narrow (with low cabin for fruit trees) and the 4100E (isodiametric tractor).

Therefore, the range of tractors offered by Arbos for Spanish farmers are the following ones:
  • 7000 Series. Model 7260 (definitive version).
  • 5000 Series. Models 5100, 5115 and 5130 with Global and Advanced versions.
  • 4000 Series. Models 4060, 4070, 4080, 4090, 4100 y 4110. Narrow, isodiametric, with different configurations (E, F, F PRO, AF and Q) tractors. A large range for specialized crops.
  • 3000 Series. Models 3040 and 3050. Narrow tractors that are ideal for greenhouses and nurseries.

We could see 5000 Series tractors in Demoagro 2017 where they were working at full capacity. Our feeling was positive but we need more working hours to have a good final opinion. We are confident that we will work with them in the future because this Series is being sold for a few months ago. The 7000 Series is going to be delivered in first months of next year. We would like to work with it to see how its FTP engine works and know great performances of this new tractor.

Nevertheless Arbos is not only tractors. With regard to implement, Arbos has a full line with tools in soil cultivations, drilling, planting and crop protection. All implements were showed but we would like to highlight the Blaster trailer sprayer of 4,000 litres, 36 metres of working width and directional axle, the launched of new seed drill called MEK-X 300 (direct sowing or minimum tillage) and the award-winning technical novelty in FIMA 2018 called Magicsem 3D that allows your monogram planter to work up to 20km/h. In FIMA 2018, we were able to see the full range of implements that undoubtedly have an extraordinary look. Italian implements of the prestigious manufacturer Martermacc Company.

Arbos range implements are listed below:

FIMA 2018

The 40th edition of FIMA Farm Fair (in Zaragoza - Spain) closed its doors on 24th February. Its statistics are really good: 1,572 exhibitors, 160,080 s.q.m and more than 240,000 visitors. Despite having visitors of up to 72 nationalities, the fair is still national scope. We had the opportunity to speak with different exhibitors who told us this edition was a success because there were a lot of professional visitors and they were really interested in exposed machinery, even exhibitors could sell a few machinery, fact that had been really difficult in previous editions. The farm fair began with great expectation because King Felipe VI inaugurated the farm fair and he visited its 11 pavilions and even he took an interest in the machinery exhibited in more than 15 stands.

Definitely, FIMA farm fair is a fantastic  storefront for all manufacturers, but it is even more significant for all farmers who would like to find a specific machinery because they have a large variety of machinery to compare easily and quickly different specifications and brands. Of course, sometimes large machinery is exposed (exhibitors like showing big machinery) and they are not ideal for a large group of farmers (unfortunately the poor and dry Spanish agriculture predominates). On the other hand, many exhibitors showed medium and small machinery that are very interesting for the majority of Spanish small farmers.  For example, we would like to buy an olive sprayer and  mulcher, so we were able to see and compare a great variety of brands and models exposed.

Regarding novelty, we would like to mention technical novelties awarded, we were proud of seeing new tractor models launched in Agritechnica (Germany) only a few months ago. Besides, we could reaffirm technology of autosteering system, drones, field yield maps are already consolidated. A part from that, we checked implements (especially seed drill, spreaders, sprayers,...) every time are bigger and even more accurate to save costs and so many interesting things that you can see in our videos that we show you below and in our wide photo gallery.
