The N and T Series have reached their 5th generation. Redesigned cabs, a new look, new transmission and engine features and the completely new smart display make it easy to use the latest technologies.
When climbing into the cab of a 5th generation N or T Series, it is obvious that the tractor has been thoroughly revamped. The first thing that catches the eye is the new steering column and the smart display on the right front pillar of the cab that controls multiple tractor functions, especially on HiTech and Active models.
Further improvements are revealed when driving. 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. The performance of the engines is otherwise the same.
When working, Direct and Versu models are controlled from an even brighter SmartTouch screen. SmartTouch also has a new Help feature that provides easy assistance with various functions. On Active and HiTech models, tractor settings are now made using the new display on the A pillar, which continues in the tradition of SmartTouch as the easiest-to-use control system in the industry.
New look inside cab
The steering column has been completely redesigned. The steering wheel is a little bigger than before but still handy in size, as is characteristic for Valtra tractors. The column with the light switches is behind the steering wheel on the left and the wiper column is on the right, while the forward-reverse shuttle lever is now a little more to the front of the steering wheel. The lever now automatically returns to the middle position after selecting the direction. As a result, the lever is always ready in the right position, even if the direction is changed frequently using the SmartTouch drive lever.
On all 5th generation N or T Series tractors, the new display replaces the traditional instrument cluster. The driver can select the information needed for the work situation on the display, just like with SmartTouch. On HiTech and Active models, the new display makes changing engine, transmission, hydraulics and other settings easier than ever. On Versu and Direct models, adjustments are made from the SmartTouch touchscreen, while the A pillar display makes it easy to monitor selected data.
New cab enhances productivity
The new cab is more comfortable and allows for more productive work. 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.
Technology makes working easier
The 5th generation N and T Series tractors have numerous features designed to make working easier. Changing between speed ranges has been made smoother thanks to the latest software and components. Quick changes are possible when the transmission temperature exceeds 30 degrees Celsius.
Auto U-Pilot combines Valtra’s innovative headland management system with Valtra Guide automated steering. Auto U-Pilot detects when the tractor is approaching the headland and engages the driver-programmed sequence automatically.
The headlights are now controlled using the new column to the left of the steering wheel. The daytime running lights switch on automatically when starting if no other lights are selected. The driver can choose whether to use the upper or lower headlights and whether to use both with on full beam.
