Branson F42H – 40HP Compact Tractor
with Hydrostatic Transmission
Great Value Hydrostatic Model
This 40HP compact tractor is an impressive all-rounder and stands out from the crowd with a very clever transmission. The hydraulic HST means that the one pedal controls forward / reverse and adjusts engines revs to the working conditions.
Branson Tractors have earned a reputation as dependable, performers as the integrated organisation controls the design and engineering right through to engine manufacturing.
The turning radius is amongst the best in the industry for great manoeuvrability making it ideal for work in orchards, nurseries etc. The front end loader is state of the art featuring single joystick operation 4 in 1 bucket and self-levelling functionality. You can do it all – blading, levelling, grabbing and scooping.
The eco-friendly engine is genuine Branson built for quiet operation and low fuel consumption. The "long stroke" design produces maximum torque at a lower operating speed. Branson's high-torque engines will pull you through tough spots that many other engines won't!
The hydraulic HST transmission is incredibly easy to use. One pedal controls forward / reverse and the engine revs so you can concentrate on getting the job done. A wide range of ground speeds makes the machine very versatile.
Branson front axles are all 4 wheel drive. They are designed with a dual power direction, hydrostatic, steering cylinder. We do not use a steering drag link. This is a major advantage for 56 degree industry leading tight turns and low steering effort. Elimination of the drag link provides uniform front tire wear and much easier steering effort in front loader applications!
Three-point hitches aren't all the same! Branson's is strong and balanced with the tractor.
The Category I hitch has a lift capacity of 1500kg at the ball end. Telescoping, adjustable, hitch stabilizers are standard equipment! Compare Branson's yoke type rockshaft lift arms. They are the best design available!
Hydraulics are the life-blood of the whole tractor. Our dual pump design provides 18 lpm to the steering system and 33.5 lpm to the loader or other hydraulic functions. Steering is smooth and easy, while all other hydraulic demands can operate at their own performance requirement, all at the same time. The dual Hydraulic remotes are a standard feature which enables you to connect up hydraulic implement. “It's the way all hydraulics should be!"
Independent 540/780 rpm PTO is a standard feature on Branson's F Series Tractors. Electric PTO also enables easy live or independent operation. A nice standard feature is 540 "E" PTO which lets the engine run 25% slower. This enables quieter, more fuel efficient operation in light operating conditions, such as mowing, spraying, etc. In heavy duty conditions, simply move the selector lever to standard mode. It really helps PTO implements work well!

Found in top of the line tractors, wet disc brakes are standard on Branson tractors assuring you always have safe, powerful braking power. And to top it off 4WD is standard with an easy shift lever.
