Praveen Penmetsa, founder and CEO of Motivo Engineering, recently sat down with Forbes to explain the many remarkable features and uses of the Harvest electric tractor. This rugged and versatile machine is currently being tested in India and California, and offers a variety of features that will appeal to farmers both on and off the grid. The design allows users to attach existing tools, create new ones, and come up with unique solutions based on their needs and the tools to which they have access.
"We’re giving you the two basics of civilization, which is rotating shaft power and electricity. Now, it’s up to the farmers out in the field to make the implements they want, or design them. Or, use each other’s ideas to come up with stuff. You can still use all the things that are already in existence. That’s the cool thing, is it’s a standard PTO shaft. It’s a standard. Wherever you are in the world, as long as you meet that standard – and a lot of implements already do – just plug it into that." - Praveen Penmetsa
