Sona Koyo will launch Power Steering for Small Tractors
Sona Koyo Steering Systems (SKSS) will launch the power steering technology for small tractors in the domestic market of India.
SKSS Executive Chairman Kiran Deshmukh said, "We have developed an electronic power steering for agriculture tractor application. The technology has been extensively tested in India and it will be launched in the next year".
The company is already exporting power steering technology called Electronic Power Assisted Module (EPAM) and the same technology is being adopted for small tractors in India, he said.
At present, power steering is available only for big tractors which cannot be fit into small tractors due to lower engine capacity and space constrain. And we are working on the same technology for small tractors in India, he said.
