TYM Tractors' T393. TYM Tractors' T393.

Korean tractor brand TYM Tractors have been available in New Zealand for more than a decade, building a reputation for quality as a quiet achiever.

The distributor Agtek, based in Te Puke, currently focuses on three models to meet the varied sectors and individual requirements.

Starting with the TS25, designed for applications requiring compact dimensions and lighter machine weights, both key considerations in a small tractor, power is provided by the well known Yanmar engine pushing out 25hp. It offers better hydraulic flow and rear lift capacity than its key competitors yet weighs in at around 75kg less.

The middle brother, T393, also runs a Yanmar engine – a 3-cylinder rated to 38hp, with impressive lift capacity to 1200kg and 25l/min hydraulic flow. 

The third model in the trio, the T503, takes its power from a 4-cylinder Perkins lump delivering 50hp, with a hydraulic flow of 36.5l/min and 1500 kg lift capacity runs a quality Perkins engine, along with all the other industry leading features of the smaller models.

All models feature a hydrostatic transmission, said to be as easy to drive as an automatic car, available with a range of front-end loader options, and rear mounted equipment such as carry-all trays, finishing mowers and rotary hoes.

Everything else from carry trays to finishing mowers and rotary hoes. The TYM T393 and T503 are also available in both cab and non-cab options.
