BRANSON TRACTORS are still little known in the Philippines but it could become a big winner as more Filipino farm owners can experience the superior performance of the agricultural machines from Korea. Philip Kim, head of Fitcorea Trading Phils believes that in due time, Branson tractors can become a byword among local agri entrepreneurs.
Branson tractors manufactured by Kukje Machinery Co. Ltd., a member of the Korea Agricultural Machinery Industry Cooperative (KAMICO), will be showcased together with the company’s combine harvesters and transplanters at the 2016 Agrilink trade show which will be held at the World Trade Center in Pasay City on October 6-8, 2016.
A product of Korean engineering talent, Branson tractors are of the highest quality.The models come in the low 35-horsepower model to the powerful 55 to 95-horsepower models. The low 35-horsepower is equipped with hydraulic system so that it can do a lot of farming chores that other brands of tractors of the same size cannot perform because they are not equipped with hydraulic system.
With hydraulic system the 35-horsepower Branson tractor can also do functions that the bigger models can do. With its hydraulic system, the small Branson tractor can plow the field for planting rice simultaneously leveling the field because it can be equipped with a leveler. It can also be used for excavating the field with a backhoe. It can make levees in the field, and can lift heavy materials with its front-end loader.
Branson tractors were introduced in the Philippines only last year but a good number of units have been purchased by individual farmers from Mindoro, Nueva Ecija, Cavite, Bulacan and Mindanao. Local governments from Pampanga and Bicol have also ordered several units only recently. Philip Kim is very optimistic that as more people experience the good performance of Branson tractors which are competitively priced with other brands from Japan and elsewhere, Branson tractors will become a byword among progressive farmers.
Other Korean products that will be exhibited at the Agrilink trade show include the compact Lee Hwa rice mill, multi-purpose dryer, solar insect trap, machine for milling brown rice and many others.
