Small Scale Farming

Rumptstad has developed, especially for West Africa and in close cooperation with African experts, a complete mechanization package based around the power platform of the very innovative Rumptstad Thai Tractor. This power platform, combined with an incredible range of appropriate implements, is the perfect tool to drastically revolutionize life in the rural areas of Africa.
Soil tillage, seedbed preparation, sowing, weeding, ridging, harvesting like threshing, processing of crops, water pumping, transportation and electricity generation are just a few of the vast range of applications possible with Rumptstad’s Mechanisation Package.

The technology used by Rumptstad is simple, sturdy and of the highest possible quality fabrication in Holland. The Rumptstad technology is easy to use, training of operators takes a couple of hours. No special knowledge or training is needed and the equipment can be used by women and men alike.

Maintenance and repairs are simple and can be done at village level without the need for special tools. Training for servicing and repairs can be done during a couple of days. The Rumptstad equipment is very well adapted and specifically designed to be operated at the grassroots level.

To reduce dependency on petrol and diesel, the engine of the Rumptstad Thai Tractor has been designed for the use of pure vegetable oils and/or biodiesel. Farmers have the possibility to grow their own fuel by planting any oil seed like sunflower, groundnut or Jatropha. Rumptstad sells the equipment to process these seeds into biofuel. Again base on their unique power platform, the Rumptstad Thai Tractor.
