Where are Mahindra tractors built?
In short, Mahindra is very much a global brand—as many equipment brands are today. Mahindra grew out of the largest tractor market in the world in India in the early 1960s thanks to a partnership with International Harvester and still has roots planted in Asia.
However, Mahindra as a company is also deeply committed to American manufacturing and supporting American agriculture. Assembly and distribution of Mahindra tractors take place in five United States cities today—including in Bloomsburg, PA, right here in our Central PA backyard at PowerPro!
Is it true that Mahindra tractors don’t have a DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter)?
Nearly all of Mahindra’s tractor models in their Compact Utility (series 1600, 2600, 3600, and 4500) and Utility (series 5500, 6000, 7000, 8000, 9000) lineups do not have diesel particulate filters. This is because Mahindra’s mCRD engine eliminates the need for a DPF and never requires high-temperature burn-offs, which is a maintenance task that often gets forgotten by owners and tractor operators.
Developing this engine was a nearly $30million investment in design to uphold the brand’s dedication to producing maximum power and torque without wasting precious fuel. Because DPF systems tend to fail prematurely and cause unexpected repair bills for tractor owners, Mahindra sought to simplify engine technology to offer better fuel efficiency and lower maintenance costs. The mCRD Engine was the result, and we think you’ll be impressed.
How reliable are Mahindra tractors?
The Mahindra brand philosophy is “Push More, Pull More, Lift More,“ which speaks to an intense commitment to building rugged and durable tractors that can work as hard as you do. In addition to the innovative and less maintenance-needy engine design we talked about in the previous answer, Mahindra engines typically boast larger displacements and lower operating RPMs than their closest competitors, too. This equals better reliability and quieter operation with excellent fuel economy.
So, the answer here is that Mahindra tractors are incredibly reliable. However, if you should run into issues, the manufacturer offers industry-leading warranties that are nearly unheard of from other tractor brands. Because Mahindra wants to win customers who will be fans of the brand for life, they provide either five or seven-year limited powertrain warranties for every tractor, depending on the specific model you choose.
Why buy a Mahindra tractor?
Mahindra lists eight specific reasons to choose their tractors over the competition. Among those are their innovative no-DPF engine design and their best-in-class warranties that we’ve already discussed. If you still need a little convincing, though, here are a few more big things that make Mahinda a smart buy every time:
- Heavier frames/rugged build quality – With a cast-iron chassis, your Mahindra tractor has more built-in weight attached to a heavy-duty frame. You get better traction, safety, and stability from every Mahindra tractor.
- Higher lift capacities – Because of their heavier build, Mahindra tractors allow for higher front end and 3-point lift capacities.
- Seating comfort – Your Mahindra tractor can handle a full day of work with no trouble. Extra cushioning, integrated armrests, and a retractable seatbelt on the mComfort seat means you can too.
- Full range of available implements – Attachments and implements for all Mahindra tractors abound, including snow blowers, backhoes, post hole diggers, mower decks, and more.
- Friendly Mahindra dealers – Mahindra approaches selling tractors as an opportunity to win fans for life, and they carefully choose dealers who can promote the brand with integrity and trust—that’s us here at PowerPro Equipment.
