Pics: Unusual, lesser-spotted tractors and combines; so who is Agromash?
Agromash is a sizable Russian manufacturer of agricultural equipment.
The brand is largely unfamiliar to us here in western Europe; it is obviously well known in its native market.
It manufactures tractors, combine harvesters and a range of farm implements.
Agromash is essentially an amalgamation of several entities and factories, including Krasnoyarsk Combine Plant, Altaisk Engine Plant, Vladimir Engine & Tractor Plant, Volgograd Tractor Plant and RusAgroMash.
These all came under the collective Agromash brand back in 2009.
Among its current products is a creditable offering of wheeled and tracked tractors; the smaller wheeled tractor line-up includes ‘tool carrier’ models – with cargo areas out front where you might normally expect to see an engine. These are reminiscent of conceptually similar (albeit now-discontinued) offerings from Fendt.
The group has been associated with a wide and varied product dossier over the years – not just tractors. Below is a picture of an Agromash KSK II self-propelled forage harvester.
Like the forager, previous incarnations of its combines were also noteworthy for their similarly-distinctive, “swept-back” cabs. Below is a Yenisei-badged machine.
The company is currently in the process of rolling out updated combines. Below is a picture of the manufacturer’s latest 4000 Series machine.
Nowadays, Agromash has an extensive network of service centres and dealers right across Russia; its operations extend into Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan.
The brand is affiliated with the so-called Machinery & Industrial Group – otherwise known as ‘Concern Tractor Plants’. It claims to be one of Russia’s leading distributors of agricultural equipment.
AgriLand has also profiled another Russian manufacturer of significance – namely Rostselmash. Rostselmash is a company of some considerable scale; it produces large numbers of combines – and also self-propelled foragers – for its native market and the surrounding regions.Also Read: Will these Russian forage harvesters make it to Ireland?
Also worthy of note is Gomselmash – a sizable manufacturer that is headquartered in the Republic of Belarus. It is especially well known for its combine harvesters and a diverse line-up of self-propelled foragers.Also Read: Pics: ‘Unusual’ forage harvester from the ‘east’ struts its stuff
