Valtra's following grows

With the release of its N5 and T5 series of tractors, Valtra continues to expand its presence in the Australia-New Zealand region.

AGCO’s ANZ Valtra product manager Paul Morris says the brand has built an increasing following in Australasia over the last few years.

He reckons this is based on the performance, reliability and user friendliness of its N4 and T4 series tractors.

“One of the most satisfying things we see are the number of farmers and contractors who buy Valtras based on the recommendation of friends and neighbours,” Morris adds.

The latest fifth generation N5 and T5 tractors are said to create a better working environment thanks to the new A-Pillar digital display and a redesigned cab interior. The tractors’ new daytime driving lights add to the modern look and are complemented by a number of new paint colours and cabin trim options.

T5 Series tractors offer power outputs from 155-271hp, featuring a six-cylinder Stage 5, AGCO Power engine set up.

These feature low revs and high torque, with a 600-hour service interval to reduce service costs and deliver a longer lifespan. 

Easily configured for loader operation, a multi-function joystick gives full electronic control with more than 2.5 tonnes lift capacity. It also gives great visibility of the implement during work and upward visibility via a roof window to the nearly 5 metre operating height.

A ‘Lock & Go’ system makes it fast and easy to mount or remove the loader from the tractor. Meanwhile, the T5’s long wheelbase and tare weight delivers stability to handle loader work.

The four-cylinder N Series tractors offer power ratings from 135hp to 200hp, using Stage V, 4.9 litre engines. These feature Start Boost and Superstart functions for easy start-off under high loads.

Claiming the best power-to-weight ratio in its class, the N Series is extremely agile without compromising on power to the ground or PTO output. The machine also delivers fuel economy and strong pulling power at all engine revs.

The latest N5 powershift transmission can be driven like a CVT in automatic modes, making shifts based on acceleration and torque requirement.

In Direct models, the CVT transmission gives you performance and high efficiency at low speeds and heavy pulling – through to light road transport or high speeds.
