Introduced as a part of the brand’s Blue Series range, the tractor is designed for specialty applications such as spraying, rotavation and inter-row cultivation in vineyards, orchards, sugarcane and cotton fields etc. The first lot of 21 tractors was handed over to customers at the launch.

With the Blue Series SIMBA, we are now providing our customers with a range of compact tractors for specialty applications.”
Powered by a three-cylinder 29HP Mitsubishi Engine, the Blue Series SIMBA 30 is focused on higher power and fuel efficiency in the segment. It also offers the benefit of a narrow track and features nine forward and three reverse gears along with side shift transmission modes, oil-immersed brakes, a 750 kg hydraulic lift capacity and automatic depth and draft control (ADDC).
The tractor offers a semi-flat platform, floor mat and heat shield with optimised operator seat height. It also features a neutral safety switch and differential lock that helps to manoeuvre the tractor safely and easily in any condition and on all surfaces. Blue Series SIMBA 30 features a four-wheel drive front axle and is equipped with an adjustable rim tyre option to reduce the overall width of the machine. For easy maintenance purposes, the tractor features a dry type air cleaner with clogging sensor that warns the operator when the air filter is clogged.
