Valtra has launched a host of new fifth generation tractors to its already bulging portfolio, this time in the N and T Series, now available for order in the Australian market.

After launching the smaller fifth generation G and A Series tractors late last year, the focus now is on even more technology and smart solutions in the new N and T Series tractors.

This most recent launch is to further mark 2021 as the 70th anniversary year for the Finnish manufacturer and there are more celebrations to come.

Speaking at the European launch of the models, Valtra vice president of sales and marketing Mikko Lehikoinen said the tractors have new smart functions and are comfortable and easy to operate.

"We have made plenty of improvements in the new series based on customer feedback on our award-winning fourth generation tractors. Precision farming is at the centre of the new generation, and each new model is available with Valtra Connect," he said.

"New legislation, such as the European Green Deal, is accelerating the need for precision farming, and agriculture will change more in the coming years than it has changed in recent decades.

"We believe that precision farming technology will play a key role in achieving sustainability goals. Ensuring that the right technology is used in the right place at the right time will help improve agricultural productivity. Valtra is ready to support farmers in this change," he said.

 

Power in Valtra's N Series and T Series ranges from 135hp to 235hp.

 

Even smarter models

Around two in three new Valtra tractors are equipped with automated steering or advanced smart farming solutions already today. Customers can also specify their new N or T Series tractor with Valtra Guide autoguidance and smart farming features such as Task Doc and Section Control. Task data can be transferred seamlessly between the tractor and farm management software.

The brand-new Auto U-Pilot combines Valtra’s innovative headland management system with Valtra Guide. Auto U-Pilot controls the implement with more precision in the headland, reducing the amount of attention required by the operator and making their job easier.

The amount of software options is increasing rapidly with the growth of smart farming technology, and Valtra customers can easily update the latest features to their SmartTouch tractors.

New features

The fifth generation N and T Series tractors come with redesigned cabs, a new look, new transmission and engine features, and a completely new smart display.

One of the most visible new features on the tractors is the display on the A-pillar, which replaces the traditional instrument panel behind the steering wheel and where all the important information can be easily seen on the colour screen.

The top of the display always shows default information, such as the driving speed, engine speed and time. Below that, the operator can select information for controlling the tractor and implement, precisely in the desired format. The display also shows the radio station and smartphone information over Bluetooth.

The same display can also be used on HiTech and Active models to make all engine, hydraulics and transmission settings. The display presents all settings and stages clearly, allowing the operator to get much more out of the tractor. On Versu and Direct models, the A-pillar display and SmartTouch divide the tasks according to suitability and also the preferences of the operator.

A thorough revamp

When climbing into the cab of the 5th generation N or T Series, it is obvious that the tractor has been thoroughly revamped. The steering column is completely new, and adjusting the position of the steering wheel is now easier.

Valtra’s acclaimed forward-reverse shuttle lever has been updated, making it now easier to change directions when switching between different controls such as the SmartTouch lever or the TwinTrac shuttle. The steering wheel is a little bigger than before but still handy in size, as is characteristic for Valtra tractors.

Starting off in the B and C speed ranges is easy, even with a heavy load, thanks to the new Start Boost feature. Changing between speed ranges is now faster, which is noticeable especially at road speeds.

At home in the cab

Operators can carry out work more efficiently when based in a comfortable cab, Valtra says.

In SmartTouch models, the right side of the cab has been redesigned, and the seat swivels even more to the right. The right control panel also has a handy phone holder and optional USB charging points for mobile phones, tablets and other electronic devices.

The upper part of the backrest on the new generation Valtra Evolution seat swivels with the driver and also provides support when the driver has partially turned around to look at the implement at the rear.

A higher-quality dark Premium interior is available as an option in the cab and includes, for example, a leather-covered steering wheel, partially chrome pedals and rubber padding at the bottom of the storage compartments.

  

Limited edition red Valtra T Series tractors will also be available

 

Availability

The new N and T Series models are available immediately in Europe, as production started back in spring at Valtra’s factory in Finland.

To mark the 70th anniversary, Valtra will also manufacture 70 specially equipped ‘Limited Redition tractors available in the T Series (T174e to T254) and will be sold worldwide.

The specially equipped anniversary models feature a deep red metallic paint reminiscent of Valtra’s roots 70 years ago. The red colour is also highlighted in the details of the tractor, including in the stitching of the leather interior and the interior light. The anniversary model has black rims and a stainless steel Limited Redition badge.
