Hasmukh has a vision to make farmers life easy through making tractor operations more affordable for farmers. So now the question arises who is Hasmukh and how did he manage to assemble a solar powered tractor? Below are the answers to all questions.

• Hasmukh belongs to a small town named Mandal which is 90kms from Ahmedabad. Being a farmer, during day he grows Cotton, Vegetables, Bajra, Jeera etc. When the sun sets, he adopts the role as a mechanic & with many unsuccessful attempts he managed to assemble a solar powered tractor.

• Hasmukh loves to repair auto parts & in his village he is famous as mechanic. Hasmukh says that he knew the pain of farmers as he himself is one. He always knew how hard it can be for farmers to pay for tractor maintenance& fuels. This is when he thought of assembling a solar powered tractor that would reduce costs for farmers.

• Before getting the prototype right Hasmukh assembled four solar powered tractors but they were not successful models. After the prototype, he assembled 3 more tractors & tested them on different soils in Gujarat. In 2018 at Vibrant Gujarat Startup and Technology Summit, Hasmukh showcased his solar powered tractor. His tractor gathered huge crowds to understand the innovation.

• Before the tractor Hasmukh also designed an electric fence powered by solar energy to fend off wild animals. His friends Kunjan Patel & Saurin Shah also joined Hasmukh in his project.Kunjan is also a farmer &Saurin is an owner of fuel outlet in Ahmedabad.

• Hasmush started by sourcing spare parts & scraps & began working on his innovation in late 2012. The initial 4 models were not able to produce desired results & he had to sell them back in scrap. Over these 4 models, Hasmukh lost 20 lakhs but this did not stopped him as he had the support of friends & partners.

• Hasmukh& friends registered their startup as Saur in Autosol Energy Private Ltd. The team has also for subsidy from iCreate& project loan from the Govt of Gujarat.
