If we need to look back and determine the activity that played the biggest role in human evolution, I would say it was agriculture. It played a far more significant role than we actually credit it for. Perhaps a more crucial part than the industrial revolution. It made us self reliant, and it can be said that it led us to civilization. God knows what would have happened if we hadn’t discovered it. Maybe we didn’t have the world we have today.
Agriculture is what makes us human. It’s the ability to produce food for ourselves that makes us one of a kind, among other factors. Agriculture still holds that Paramount position in human life. It can be estimated that agriculture still forms around 6.4 per cent of the global GDP and it is estimated to grow as new people are entering the agriculture sectors with new technologies and replacing the traditional practices with new ones.
As we entered the industrial age, tractors have replaced human effort. Earlier, agriculture was a very expensive and extensive thing (with opportunity costs like time and effort involved). But with the advent of tractors, both time and effort of humans have decreased and thereby decreasing the opportunity costs. Tractors are efficient, fast and effective. They are easy to use and can help you to do your work easily and fast.
When we talk about tractors, Mahindra seems to be the only company that comes to mind. With its new motto of ‘Rise’, the automobile giant seems to be on the rise as well. The company dominates the existing tractor market by a great margin. The company is known to produce great products, in this case, tractors according to what every consumer needs: durable, effective and on a budget. As far as India is concerned, Mahindra tractors dominate. The company seems to have a very effectively established relationship among the masses, especially among the farmers.
The company is one of the leading tractor brands in India and in the world. With its great range of products in the segment, the company has surely made its place among the masses.
Here is the List Of Top 15 Best Mahindra Tractors:
this one is a powerhouse for sure and stands tall up to his name. The 265 DI Power Plus is one of the most popular tractors among the masses. It costs between 4 to 5 lakhs and is sure a great buy in this segment. This one is used for a variety of purposes ranging from speed drill, cultivation, disc plough and threshing etc.

Mahindra tractors are known for their quality of engines, speaking of which I’m bound to tell you that this machine boasts of a 2400 CC engine with 3 cylinders. The fuel tank is of 49 litres capacity and it also has the power steering.
Mahindra Yuvraj is yet another popular and budget-oriented tractor from Mahindra. It’s small, compact and easy to use. The tractor costs about half of the price of 265 DI but offers great performance and effectiveness in working. With its 863 CC engine which rotates at a rate of staggering 2300 RPM, the machine produces enough torque to move loads and do a bit of heavy lifting as well, although being designed for lighter stuff.

This one is specially designed for the lower end of the income spectrum so that the company could provide its services to small and marginal farmers as well. It has a full tank capacity of 24 litres which works fine. The mileage is also pretty good and its numbers speak for itself. This mini tractor is a competitively priced model and a perfect choice for farmers.
with its comfortable features and stylish look, 475 DI is a perfect fit tractor that is one of the best sellers from Mahindra. With a 4 cylinder and 2730 cc engine, this one is a powerhouse in the middle segment. It’s 8 forward and 2 backward gear system makes it easy to use and a preferred choice for most farmers.
It can be easily stated as a combination of Power and Efficiency. It comes in two steering variants: Power and Manual, for those people who like it kind of old school. It has a fuel tank capacity of 48 litres and is one of the best in the segment.

Speaking of Strong and Durable, Mahindra 575 DI is one of the best tractors to ever come out of the factories of Mahindra. It’s an engineering marvel. All of its features: from the engine to looks, it’s designed with precision and care. Think of it as a big brother of Mahindra 475 DI.
This one boasts of a 4 cylinder, 2730 cc engine that produces a horsepower of 45 hp, which makes it one of the best choices for medium scale farming. This one comes with additional additions like accessories which consist of tools and top links. It is described to be the one with stylish looking, powerful and technologically advanced.

This tractor can be used from easy and simple tasks to hard ones. The tractor has a lifting capacity of 1600 kgs and the smooth functioning transmission of 8 forward and 2 backward gears even further accentuate its working capabilities. It can be used for haulage, cultivation and Gyrovator.
This tractor can be aptly described as the bringing in best of both the worlds of power and suitability. This one comes in 2 variants named: Bhumiputra and Sarpanch. The difference lies in the dimensions of the tractor, the air cleaner type used and fuel tank capacity.
The sarpanch variant is more compact than the Bhumiputra. This one is a 50 HP tractor that can be used for almost anything. From simple agricultural operations to transport shipments. With the price range of 6 to 6.4 lakhs, this one model of Mahindra stands out among others due to its suitability criteria.
It is something that can do a wide range of functions while still being at the lower end of the income spectrum. Nowadays, even the government is providing subsidies on such powerful and good tractors so that they can be provided to each and every farmer who wants them.
If Mahindra’s very own 265 DI and 575 DI had a baby, It’d be this one: Mahindra Jivo 225DI. This one is a compact and easy looking, easy working, the budget-oriented tractor that can be used by one and all. But don’t let the lower cost make you feel that it’s not worth it.
For most of the operations, this one works like a charm. This one is designed especially for the financially weak and marginalised farmers. Jivo can be said as the compact version of Mahindra 475 DI and has almost the same specifications. With its 2 cylinders, 1366 CC engine, this one is one of the best that Mahindra has to offer.
The transmission is easy and smooth with 8 forward and 4 backward gears that make it a great investment. It uses the sliding mesh gearbox which further enhances its capabilities and at the same time reduces its maintenance costs.
And it has those oil-immersed brakes that I’m going all GaGa about. The price is around 3.80 lakhs and I don’t think anyone can find a better tractor than this one in this price range. It absolutely dominates the market by providing this much for that price.

This one is a great tractor from the conglomerate. It has a 4 stroke injection diesel engine and can be used for a wide variety of functions: from a rotavator to thresher, from a sprayer to a ridge. You name it, 245 orchards have got you covered.
The ergonomics of this one is also pretty good and makes you feel like it’s sort of a high-end tractor while its pricing is just in the appropriate range of 4 to 5 lakhs. The interiors are comfortable to the eyes and so is the seat. It provides for a good range of functions even in the internal system.
The engine is water-cooled to save and prevent it from overheating which degrades the performance of the engine but also the performance of the tractor itself and makes it inefficient. The tractor comes with 6 forward and 2 backward gear transmission systems and that helps in easy locomotion of the machine from one place to another. It has a top speed of 23kmph.
This one can be described as the better version of Jivo 265. Mahindra Jivo 365 DI is the latest edition of the Mahindra family in the category of 30 to 40 HP tractors. It is a lightweight but strong and durable tractor that has great capabilities and working power.

I saved the best one for the last. This one is the best to offer from Mahindra but it is priced at a higher range. It is a technologically advanced tractor which can do a wide variety of operations. The company claims that it can handle 40 different farming operations.
