Romanian distributor supports new tractor

Perkins distributor Maviprod in Romania has developed a strong relationship with local manufacturer IRUM SA. Their latest collaboration resulted in a new Perkins powered agricultural tractor.

Maviprod, part of the Mavi group, has over the years worked with IRUM SA, a local Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), on successful developments including tractors and machines for agricultural and forestry industries.

Their most recent project is an agricultural tractor called the TAG 95.1.

A successful independent business, IRUM selects engines and suppliers depending on the specific requirements of the project. “Perkins as a brand is recognised in Romania,” said PhD eng Andrei Ioan Oltean, business development manager of Maviprod, “but of utmost importance to IRUM was Perkins latest emissions technology and capability to move from EU Stage IIIB to Stage IV.“

For the first prototype of IRUM’s proposed tractor, the Maviprod team suggested a Perkins 854 or 1204 engine.

IRUM specified a Perkins 1204E-E44TA for this particular opportunity, choosing the 1200 Series for its power range and the excellent combination with the transmission proposed by the engineering design team.

Real working conditions

The design was completed in six months. Physical development was carried out by the two companies from February 2014 to March 2015, followed by testing of the prototype TAG 95.1 at a farm in real working conditions.

Drawing on its own resources, Maviprod carried out 80 percent of the prototype development. Mr Oltean said: “We take pride in our flexibility and ability to provide customers with a complete solution, from design through testing to prototyping and validation.”

Another prototype, powered by a Perkins 854F-E34TAWF engine, is expected to be completed later in the year.
