Most tractor manufacturers claim the horsepower of the tractor at the engines maximum RPM. This means that for you to actually get the horsepower you bought the engine must be set to maximum RPM moving the engine further away from its maximum torque and using unnecessary fuel.
The Cummins engines used exclusively throughout the Branson Tractor range in fact produce more horsepower than the claimed horsepower on the side of the tractor. What does this mean for you? You only need to run the engine @ 2600 RPM to get what you paid for. In turn lower revving engines run closer to the maximum torque of the engine making the tractor feel more grunty and they use less fuel, run quieter & cooler ultimately saving you money.
Branson Tractor have also included an over-ratio rear PTO in most of their tractor range meaning that the required 540 rpm for most rear implements is achieved @ 2600 RPM instead of full engine RPM giving even greater fuel economy for PTO functions such as slashing.
It make sense, not only do Branson Tractors deliver excellent value for money during the purchase process they continue to deliver cost savings for the life of the tractor.
