More 4th generation A Series tractors have been built at the Suolahti factory in Finland in just a few years than the previous A3 generation. Now Valtra is introducing the 5th generation A Series. The 4th generation A Series won the Machine of the Year award twice, in 2017 and 2019. Now, this popular model is entering its 5th generation with many new features that have been requested by customers.
The model range continues to comprise seven models, all of which are available as GL versions with an easy-to-use mechanical transmission. The most popular 105- and 115-horsepower models are also available with a four-step Powershift. The transmission on these HiTech 4 models is controlled completely electronically. All models feature Valtra’s well-known forward-reverse shuttle with integrating parking brake.
“Operating the A Series has been made even more efficient and comfortable in many ways. Powershift gears are available on several models, the front loader armrest also been upgraded on GL versions, the four-cylinder models have five more horsepower than before, and the service interval has increased to 600 hours,” says Marko Ojalehto, the product marketing specialist in charge of the new A Series.
Over 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 HiTech 4 models.
More Powershift gears and advanced engine
Three-cylinder A75–A95 models can now be specified with the HiTech 2 transmission with two Powershift gears, which makes field work in particular more productive and requires lower engine speeds when driving on the road. The total number of gears on HiTech 2 versions is 24 forward and 24 reverse.
On four-cylinder models, engine power has been increased by five horsepower and now corresponds to the model designation. Smaller models still have a three-cylinder engine. All engines comply with Stage V emissions standards and now feature a diesel particulate filter (DPF) in addition to SCR injection, but no exhaust gas recirculation (EGR). 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.
The A Series is available with either a pneumatic or hydraulic brake system for trailers. The cost-effective hydraulic system automatically detects whether the brakes connected to it are standard single-wire or the latest two-wire brakes.
