If obstacles are hit with the tire, no mechanical parts will wear out. All large HP tractors use hydrostatic steering.
DUAL HYDRAULIC PUMPS
Much smoother operation of the front-end loader because the loader and the hydrostatic steering have their own pumps. Most Economy model tractors use just one pump, which is cheaper to produce.
20, 45 & 50 series
This transmission is much more expensive to produce, but most importantly, it allows the operator to shift on the go without bringing the tractor to a complete stop to change gears.
CAST IRON REAR END AND TRANSMISSION HOUSINGS
It is not good to have hp and not be able to transmit it to the rear wheels. Cast Iron is the best ballast but is the most expensive to produce. The wonderful thing about our tractors is that when you buy our 30hp, you get the same 50hp gearbox we use in our 50hp.
POWDER COATED PANELING
No worries about cracking the tractor components due to weathering, accidents, or other acts that could cause the plastic or fiberglass used on our competitors to crack. Powder Coating prevents UV damage to the paint bringing longevity to our paint jobs. All side panels can be removed without any tools.
INDEPENDENT PTO OR LINK
The most expensive and most sought-after PTO function is independent. All of your large hp farm utility tractors use independent PTO. The independent PTO gives the operator much more control over his PTO function. It also reduces the burning out of the clutch because he no longer has to engage the clutch lever to control his PTO function. However, we went the extra mile, and those customers who want to stop the PTO with the clutch can do so by switching to the live clutch position on the tractor’s PTO function switch.
WET DISC BRAKES
Not all top-of-the-line tractors use wet disc brakes because it is much more expensive to produce a wet disc brake. The advantage of a wet disc brake is simple: it is always in a protected environment, assuring the operator will always have excellent braking power under demand.
BACK UP LIGHTS
Back-up lights are automatically engaged when the shuttle lever is shifted into reverse. The operator will appreciate this standard equipment when working outside late in the evening. It will illuminate the area behind him so he can see and not back over anything that could be in the way.
We are one of the few tractor manufacturers that put a tilt wheel in as standard equipment. This allows the operator to position the steering wheel for optimum comfort.
TRUE FLAT DECK
Branson offers a true flat deck configuration. There is nothing in the way to cause a customer to stumble or catch a pants leg when dismounting the tractor.
CENTERED MOUNTED FUEL TANK. (MOST MODELS)
Branson offers under-the-platform fuel tanks on compacts. The lower tank allows the customer to fill it without worrying about spilling fuel all over the tractor and himself. Plus, it puts the weight of the fuel in the center of the tractor where it belongs. Because of the location under and not upper, we can have one of the largest open platforms in the industry.
TWO-SPEED PTO. AVAILABLE ON MOST MODELS
We are one of the few that offer a two-speed PTO as standard equipment. Because our A series engine develops its maximum torque at 1800 rpm, it allows the customer to switch to 1000 rpm and slow his rpm to approx. 1400 and operate his implements for more significant fuel savings and efficiency. This also allows the customers to use various spray rigs, which need 1000rpm to work correctly.
We offer clutch locks as standard equipment. This allows the customer to lock out his clutch discs which will prevent clutch sticking if the customer is leaving his tractor non-operational for extended periods.
No more worry about corrosion destroying your radiator.
REMOVABLE FRONT RADIATOR SCREEN
This is a great standard feature that allows the customer to clean out without having air or water.
Both hydraulic pumps are engine mounted, not like some of our competition. This means that the customer has hydraulic power at this disposal at all times.
FOLD DOWN ROPS
This allows the customer to go under trees or any other low-lying structure.
INDIVIDUAL WORK LAMP
This allows the customer to shine a light on his implement for nighttime operation, or the customer can use it to light up an area to facilitate any work he may have.
QUICK ATTACH LOADER & MID-MOUNT MOUNTING KIT WITH REAR AXLE BRACKETS
Our loader is a genuine quick attach, requiring no tools to remove, plus anyone can remove the loader in less than 5 minutes. The mid-mount mounting frame allows the customer to lift the loader up, and once the tractor side panels are removed, he will have 100% access to the engine compartment. Plus, all of our loaders go to the rear axle, which promotes more strength and helps prevent what is known as LOADER SWAY.
FRONT BUMPER GUARD
All our loader tractors come standard with a bumper guard to protect the front tractor bonnet.
RECESSED GREASE INSERTS
All of our loaders come with recessed grease inserts to prevent the possibility of any being broken off. Also, all the grease inserts are facing outwardly so the customer can reach them for greasing.
We cover bumper to bumper for 1000 hours or two years and 2000 hours or six years on the engine and power train*. (*The 7845 & 8050 models are 2000 hours or four years on the engine and power train.)
