The Dongfeng range is perfectly streamlined. The tractors are fully assembled including the option with a factory fitted front ended loader. They are QC passed in China by our own full time quality control staff. In Australia we virtually key start them and roll them off the container. A final safety check / pre delivery is conducted and they are ready to go to work. There are no middleman dealer costs, there are no elaborate pre delivery charges – just great prices and a 2 year warranty.
While the Dongfeng brand may be relatively unknown in Australia it comes from the same stable as the well established East Wind brand that has been available in Australia for 15 years. In addition, thousands of these simple little tractors have been sold in North America and Europe over many years.

So what do you get for your money? First of all there is a choice between a 25HP model (ZB25), 35 HP model (ZB35) and a 45 HP model (ZB45) using a 1.5 litre, 2.23 litre and 2.83 litre direct injected diesel engines respectively. The transmission is taken care of with a simple manual 4 speed gear box with high and low range. This instils immediate confidence as this is the identical power plant and drive train that has been utilised in the well regarded East Wind range over a number of years. A three point linkage system and PTO enable all kinds of popular implements to be fitted from slashers to grader blades to get all kinds of jobs done.
Safety is well covered with an Australian Certified folding Roll Over Protective Structure (ROPS), PTO shaft guard and retractable seat belt. Plus a clutch engaged safety switch prevents accidental take offs when starting.
But the stand out feature in this range is the 4 in 1 bucket. Supplied as standard it has outstanding versatility to scoop, blade, level as well as grab. Opening the 4 in 1 bucket up exposes the blade for scraping and pushing soil. Being able to close the bucket over an object gives the ability to grab – which is very handy for shifting branches etc. And of course you can use it like a standard bucket to move soil, gravel, mulch etc. The BL-25 / BL-35 / BL-45 boast lifting capacities of 350 kg / 400 kg / 500 kg respectively.
A self levelling feature enhances safety by keeping the bucket level when raising and lowering the boom. A quick release mechanism means the bucket can be easily removed to fit other attachments such as a fork attachment with bale spikes. To make the machine more manoeuvrable for jobs such as slashing, the entire loader assembly can also be quick released on its own support stands.
At the end of the day the new factory direct Dongfeng range is a brilliant entry level tractor for the Australian Market. We do have more premium options available in our East Wind range but the inclusion of the Dongfeng range in our offer means that there is an option for everyone no matter what your budget.Top
