Valtra’s A Series Enters the HiTech Era

The Valtra A Series has traditionally been the most popular tractor in Scandinavia. Valtra has further improved the forest features that are so important in this region.

The popular A Series from Valtra enters the HiTech era. The new electronic HiTech forward-reverse shuttle that is now available on the A Series is closely related to Valtra’s traditional shuttle feature, which is widely considered the best on the market. The smooth and precise shuttle is a big advantage when performing front-loader tasks. The system also features an integrated handbrake, further enhancing convenience and safety.

Together with the electronic shuttle the A Series gets a dual-speed PTO controlled by a hydraulic multidisc clutch. The PTO is operated by simple switches, and the hydraulics offer smooth engagement. Control switches can also be optionally specified in the rear mudguard.

The new A Series tractors are powered by AGCO Sisu Power 3.3-litre common rail engines. A viscous fan and common rail fuel injection reduce both noise and fuel consumption. With the introduction of electronic engine management, the A Series is now also available with cruise control. Other new electronic features are available for operating the front linkage and transmission. Valtra’s electronic Autocontrol front linkage is extremely precise, and switches for raising and lowering the linkage can be found in both rear mudguards. Valtra’s unique Autotraction feature and automated 4WD system are ideal for tasks that require repeated stopping and starting. The options list also includes electronic Proline dials that provide a wide range of information.

Driver comfort has been taken to a new level. Noise levels in the cab have been further reduced, and the cab itself has been comprehensively updated. The suspended pedals, including electronic clutch and gas pedals, are easy to operate even with heavy boots. Entering the cab is now easier thanks to wider access. The adjustability of the steering wheel and driver’s seat has also been improved. Customers no longer need to specify a forest cab, as the redesigned cab offers a more even floor. For forest tasks the cab can be specified with a gas pedal in the rear and a rear window designed for a loader valve.

Valtra – Individually Yours

New customer promise reinforces Valtra’s customer-based philosophy

Valtra updated its customer promise and corporate identity in connection with its 60th anniversary in January.

According to the company vision, Valtra’s aim is to be the most desirable partner for individual and reliable tractors and solutions. The new customer promise “Individually Yours” communicates the company’s unique way of operating among its own employees, sales and service network, partners and above all customers.

The core philosophy of Valtra is to meet the individual needs of the customer. This philosophy is born from Valtra’s unique customer-based service concept and customer order system, which was introduced in 1992. Valtra’s sales representatives work in close partnership with their customers to determine the ideal tractor specifications for their requirements. The design of Valtra tractors is based on modules combined with additional options and unique features, allowing half a million different combinations. This extreme versatility allows Valtra to offer competitive solutions to customers involved in farming, forestry, municipal contracting and heavy contracting.

The ongoing development of business practices, new investments in production, and future development plans will continue to reinforce Valtra’s individual and customer-based operations.

Together with the customer promise, Valtra modernized its logo. The Valtra name has appeared in 3D on the sides of tractors. The new print and electronic logo will have the same 3D design approach reflecting power and quality of its products.
