"Kiwifruits King of Comfort" Rated the # 1 Tractor for kiwifruit, by kiwifruit growers. Quasar tractors, available in both high and low versions, are in a class of their own and know no rivals in the market.
The bodywork with its aggressive and sloping design, the tight turning radius, the big, almost iso-diametric driving wheels and the powerful engine make Quasar the ideal machine for working between the rows of orchards like kiwi fruit with low plants & pergolas, where there's not much room for manoeuvring, and or on heavy soil, sloping and rugged ground. Thanks to the compact bearing structure, which distributes 50% of the weight on the front axle and 50% on the rear one, the center of gravity has been kept low and near to the middle of the machine, while all the traction is fully discharged towards the ground, thus allowing the operator to work in complete safety even with very heavy implements and steeply sloping ground.
The Quasar "super low" was developed purely as a result of the needs of the kiwi fruit grower. The big advantage of the Quasar is that it is built from the ground up- not the top down, like other orchard tractors. This enables the Quasar to have the lowest and most comfortable factory built operator platform in the market, at just over 700mm, and while still on large low profile 300 / 65 R16 & 340 / 65 R20 wheel equipment, also allowing a road speed of 40 kph.
Here in New Zealand the Quasar has built an enviable reputation for its reliability & strength, and is operated by many of the major corporate users.
