Still on offer with three models, the power now ranges from 520 to 605hp from a 15-litre Cummins engine and Cat Powershift transmission.

Versatile marketing director Adam Reid said there were a number of new features on the latest 610DT model.

"The engines are now Tier 4 final on this latest 610DT model and they offer 15 per cent more pulling power at the tracks thanks to a changed gear set.

"We have also incorporated a new braking system which sees another disc being added at the rear, meaning two rear and one frontal braking system."

Reid says these tractors also boast a new suspended cab to increase operator comfort and there is a new cab internal touchscreen terminal for extra ease of use.

When quizzed on what the current policy was with Versatile into looking at alternative engine solutions, Reid was clear on this response.

"Options for alternative energy power on these larger tractors are scarce but of course we are keeping an eye on developments," he says.

"However, I have to say Versatile will follow Cummins’ lead on this and will keep in close contact with them about any developments."

The DeltaTrack uses a positive drive system to reduced wear, friction and heat. Track slippage is eliminated by interlocking track lugs into the drive wheel.

The DeltaTrack keeps 6.5 lugs engaged with the drive wheel at all times to eliminate slippage between the track and drive wheel.

The DeltaTrack uses the largest drive lugs in the industry – 8.5 inches (215.9mm) – to maximise operating life.

The DeltaTrack uses the heavy-duty Cat TA22 powershift transmission with 16 forward and four reverse gears. A large selection of working gears is available to match almost any application.

The TA22 is fully programmable for autoshift and speed matching. Capable of road speeds up to 22mph (35km/h), the DeltaTrack moves between fields efficiently.

Agritechnica ran from November 12-18, 2017 in Hanover, Germany. Not all products launched at the event will be available in Australia.
