Valtra’s first G Series tractor has made its Australian debut, marking one of the first new models to hit our shores in about a year.

Following its launch in Europe last year, the first Valtra G Series tractor made its debut in Australia in March. 

The G125 EcoActive was showcased at a demonstration day in Colac and the tractor, the first of Valtra’s new G Series’ to arrive in Australia, will travel the country in the coming months to give prospective buyers a test run.

Valtra product manager Paul Morris says the new model was "everything we hoped for" and early feedback had been positive.

"For those who are more familiar with Valtra, it has those familiar stylings but with a more modern take on it," he says.

"I think it is that combination of a lighter chassis, which we have been missing from the lineup - a lighter chassis powershift tractor that will suit the livestock or dairy farmer, so it is more nimble but lighter for feedout as well. 

"It has a very strong chassis so we see it has front linkage, and it’s a heavier tractor so it can carry a load better."

With four models ranging from 105–135hp (78–100kW), the G Series fits between Valtra’s A-Series and N-Series models.

The G125 EcoActive already in Australia is a 125hp model which also has a 10hp boost to 135hp.

Morris says the Eco models "have basically a second engine mode that gives better engine torque at a lower RPM."

The G125 EcoActive also has a 24+24R transmission with four ranges and six Powershift gears – and a top speed of 40km/h, while its slowest working speed is just 120m per hour.

Other features include a four-cylinder 4.4-litre Agco power engine, a SmartTouch armrest on some models which allows the powershift transmission to be driven like a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and can be operated using just the drive lever.

The cabin has 5.7 square metres of glass, including a panoramic roof, along with heated mirrors, air conditioning and cab suspension.

An optional extra is the Wayline Assistant, which makes it possible to create segmented waylines manually, either from existing waylines or according to the edges of the field.

Morris says there has been huge uptake on the new models across Europe, with significant stock numbers due to arrive in Australia later this year.
