BUSTERS Countryside Management is seeing the benefits of an Antonio Carraro Tigre 3200 tractor, recently purchased from UK importer, Kirkland UK.

Needing a tractor to help his business expand that was compact, stable and versatile, owner Alex McCann was said to be thrilled with his Tigre 3200 and the level of customer service he received from Kirkland UK.

He said: “We were looking for a small, powerful, well-built compact tractor, to be used mainly for our low-impact forestry operations. This mainly entails towing a timber trailer through rough wooded terrain, and monthly flail mowing duties. The ACTIO centre pivot and isodiametric design really gives this very capable little tractor amazing stability and traction, which were key points in deciding to purchase it.”

Kirkland UK offers a large selection of compact tractors made in Italy by Antonio Carraro. These range from a 26 hp version to a 98 hp cabbed model, and from just 985 mm wide to 1,900 mm. The Antonio Carraro tractors are described as having an incredibly low centre of gravity, making them the ideal for working on rough terrain and steep gradients. The majority of models have equal-sized wheels for the best weight distribution while ensuring the operator has increased stability, comfort and traction.
