The popular Valtra A Series is going into its 5th generation. The revised tractor range, that offers from 75 to 135hp, is now available with many new features that have been requested by customers.
The model series continues to comprise seven models, all of them available in the GL format that feature an easy-to-use mechanical transmission. The best-selling 105 and 115hp model are also available with a four-step powershift transmission. In these HiTech 4 machines, the transmission is controlled electronically. All A Series tractors come with Valtra’s renowned shuttle transmission that includes an integrated handbrake.
“Operating the A Series has been made even more efficient and comfortable in many ways,” Valtra’s product marketing specialist in charge of the new range, Marko Ojalehto, said. “Powershift gears are available on several models; the front loader armrest has been upgraded on GL models; the four-cylinder models hav five more horsepower than before; and the service interval has increased to 600 hours.”
New features on the 5th generation A Series:
- 5hp more on A105 to A135 models;
- two Powershift gears optional on A75 toA95 models;
- AutoTraction, which can be switched on/off;
- dual-circuit hydraulic brakes;
- new control armrest on gear lever models;
- upgraded Stage V compliant engines;
- 600-hour service intervals;
- redesigned engine cover;
- redesigned wheels;
- optional PTO buttons on rear mudguard on HiTech 4 models;
- Valtra Connect remote monitoring optional;
- automatic main power switch in the ignition switch.
More than half of A Series tractors are fitted with a front loader at the factory. Accordingly, many of the upgrades have been designed to make front loader work even easier, such as the Powershift gears and updated control armrest familiar from HT4 models.
From now on, the three-cylinder models A75 to A95 will be available with the HiTech 2 transmission featuring powershift. This will result in more efficient field work and enable road transport at lower engine speeds. The HiTech 2 models have a 24 forward and reverse speed transmission. In addition, all A Series models can be equipped with a creeper transmission that reduces the lowest speed to approximately 100m/hr.
Engine power has been increased by 5hp on four-cylinder models and now corresponds to the model designation. All engines comply with Stage V emissions standards and now feature a diesel particulate filter (DPF) in addition to SCR injection. Exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) is not required.
Engine speed and power can now be controlled even more precisely thanks to a new accelerator pedal. Increasing the service interval from 500 to 600 hours saves costs, while increasing the amount of productive working time.
According to current regulations tractors need to be compatible with trailers with a dual-circuit braking system. The A Series is available with compressed air brakes or a hydraulic trailer brake system, customers can chose their preferred option.
