As its name suggests, the Rapid Universo is a true all-rounder. With a 13hp petrol engine, hydrostatic drive, active steering and two-directional working, this is a professional machine for the professional operator. It features a two-speed independent PTO giving speeds of 700rpm or 1000rpm so that you can match the attachments perfectly. It has the standard quick-attach system and the Rapid twist grip transmission control. Steering is controlled by levers mounted underneath each side of the handlebars. As a two-directional tractor, the handlebars turn through 230 degrees and are able to lock in an offset position. To perform this, Rapid use their patented ‘Wendermatic’ system, which keeps the forward and reverse as well as the right and left hand steering controls the same, wherever the position of the handlebars. This makes the machine much easier to use for the operator.
The Universo has the ability to perform in all areas – whether it be rotavating or stone burying, grass cutting and flailing or haymaking with the mini round baler, this tractor is on top of its job. All this with the capability of performing each task on steep slopes if required.
