The fact that the Rex 110F was chosen in the specialised category as this year's Tractor of the Year at the 2010 Eima International show in Bologne, Italy, has given the company a boost in terms of PR and seen an increase in sales of the range.
AgriArgo UK area sales manager Steve Cann said: "Although these tractors are small, they are high specification." Following a restyle to meet the new corporate appearance at the end of last year, Argo is introducing an extra-narrow Rex 90S with 83hp four-cylinder engine, a compact three-cylinder engined Rex 70F at 68hp and Rex 85F with 79hp and the Rex 120F and GT with 110hp.
The 'F' versions feature a tighter-steering front drive axle to improve agility. Inside the machine, the clutch pedal has been relocated and various levers moved to allow the control of a front linkage or power take-off (PTO).
Transmissions for all models are either a 15 forward, 15 reverse gearbox with synchro shuttle or a 30x30 unit with two-speed powershift and power shuttle shifting between forward and reverse. Electro-hydraulic engagement of the PTO is available on the synchro shuttle models while loader operators have an electronic joystick option giving fingertip control of up to five remote valves for different functions.
Cann said: "We can now offer growers seven power outputs to suit different situations for fruit and nursery production."
