The Valtra Ants tractor is a unique look into the possible future of farm equipment. This buggy tractor was designed by Lighthaus and was inspired by soldier and worker ants. Lighthaus' tractor marries an eye-catching design with an eco-friendly engine to produce a sustainable and futuristic piece of heavy machinery.

The Valtra Ants tractor comes in two different styles: soldier and worker. The soldier configuration contains a hybrid engine with an electric motor pumping out 100 kW of power. The worker configuration is fully electric and can pump out 200 kW of power. The commercial automobile industry has been going green for awhile now. The same cannot be said about companies that make heavy machinery like tractors and backhoes. Designs like the Valtra Ants tractor will hopefully inspire the makers of these mechanical beasts of burden to add a tinge of green to their designs.
