Two awards for the Weidemann eHoftrac

The Weidemann 1160 eHoftrac was awarded in March of this year with the innovation award of Equitana 2015 and the innovation award from the Bulgarian trade fair AGRA 2015.


At Agritechnica 2013, Weidemann presented for the first time an initial prototype of the new emission-free electrically driven 1160 eHoftrac. At EuroTier 2014, a fully developed machine was presented, which simultaneously marked the sales launch. As a part of a large-scale presentation tour, Weidemann has been presenting the new innovative farm loader with an electric drive concept to the general public in close co-operation with the respective distributors at trade fairs and events since the end of November 2014.

In March 2015, the machine was able to win two awards at renowned trade fairs as a result of the presentation tour. At the Bulgarian trade fair AGRA 2015 in Plovdiv, the 1160 eHoftrac was awarded the innovation award in the category of "Machines, equipment and technologies for animal husbandry". A total of 9 awards were given in 6 categories.
Furthermore, the 1160 eHoftrac was given the special innovation award from the jury at Equitana 2015 (Essen, Germany). This award is given out for particularly outstanding innovations for the equine industry. The award shows the appreciation and sensitivity of horse owners for low-noise and emission-free machines, which ultimately benefits both humans and animals.
