Valtra Unveil their New T Series Tractor…December 11, 2014
Their ballsiest launch yet so says our Hamilton Brothers expert!
According to our resident Valtra expert Brian Hamilton who attended the recent unveiling of Valtra’s all new ‘T’ Series, “it was exactly as advertised on the board at the entrance to the venue and by far their ballsiest launch yet from start to ‘finnish’! says Brian. “There is nothing of the old tractor in evidence. This new T Series has been completely redesigned, beefed up and strengthed with an entirely new cab, chassis, heavier lift capacity and of course eco-friendly and fuel efficient”.
This new series ranging from 155 to 250 HP with up to 1000 Nm of torque to cope with the most demanding tasks is the culmination of extensive discussions with hundreds of customers and thousands of hours of test driving. And the end result? A tractor which is 100% ‘Built Around the Driver’.
The new T Series is available in four variants: Direct, Versu, Active and HiTech, the last of which will enter production next year. Production of the Direct, Versu and Active models has already begun. Active is a new line that features a powershift transmission and mechanically operated load-sensing hydraulics. The new Versu, Active and HiTech models revolutionise the way powershift tractors are driven. The clutch pedal is only required when starting the engine and the brake pedals also control the clutch. Other features include:
Intelligent Engine Design
All T Series models are powered by reliable AGCO Power engines, either a 6.6-litre engine or 7.4 in the larger models. Exhaust emissions are minimised by a Stage 4-standard SCR system and the turbo on the latest engines has an electronic bypass valve, so the engine responds rapidly and offers excellent torque even at low revs and optimum fuel efficiency. The T174 model is also available with Valtra’s EcoPower feature. When the Eco button is depressed, the nominal engine speed drops to 1800 rpm while torque increases. This results in a 10% reduction in fuel consumption while lowering the noise level and extending engine life.
Roomy Cab with Exceptional Visibility
The most striking feature of the fourth generation T Series is its brand new cab which is stylish, spacious and quiet. Pillars that curve outwards maximise interior space for the driver while keeping the external dimensions compact. The cab is now 20 centimetres wider by the driver’s seat compared to the previous generation.
You will also benefit from electrically heated front and rear screens, a front windscreen wiper sweeping 270 degrees, factory-fitted parking cameras, LED working and rear lights, and 6sq metres of glass combine to offer unsurpassed visibility. Another window in the front of the roof also helps when operating a front loader. Driver comfort has been further optimised with a stereo with subwoofer, a cool box, a TwinTrac reverse-drive system that can be adjusted laterally and a factory-fitted, fuel-powered and phone-operated auxiliary heater. Some of these features are standard, while others can be ordered from Valtra’s unrivalled options list.
Ease-of-use and Low Cost of Ownership
Special attention was paid to the ease of use and maintenance when designing the new T Series. Service intervals are 600 hours, and checking the oils on a daily basis is simple thanks to the inspection windows plus radiators and filters are easy to access without tools.
Tailor Your Tractor to Suit Your Individual Requirements
As with all Valtra tractors you can tailor your tractor to suit your individual requirements from an enormous list of options including AutoGuide steering assist system which uses satellite and correction signals to steer the tractor accurately to within a centimetre! Also available is the AgCommand remote monitoring system which enables you to keep track of servicing requirements and of course Valtra Premium Care, AGCO Finance and Valtra’s first-class spare parts service are also on offer to give you unsurpassed reliability, and low running and maintenance costs.
