Antonio Carraro will be displaying several new pieces of agricultural equipment at Fieragricola, taking place February 6 to 9 2014 in Verona, Italy. The company's booth will be located in the Vineyard/Orchard Hall n. 4 – Stand B4-B5.
Mach 2: steering reversible twin-track tractor
Antonio Carraro continues to develop new-concept tracked vehicles suitable to work on rough,muddy or wet terrain. Rubber tracks offer the ideal solution to increase working speed and productivity, as well as to improve vehicle comfort and safety, while reducing soil compaction. After the success of the Mach 4 articulated reversible quadtrack launched on the market in 2008, Carraro has focused on the development of a new prototype of tracked tractor. Over these years, the company has extensively tested and fine-tuned the prototype in order to arrive at Fieragricola 2014 with a totally innovative, ready-for-sale product. The Mach 2 is a steering reversible two-track tractor with rear rubber tracks and 20-inch front tires.
The Mach 2 is designed for use on sloping terrains where constant grip, traction, stability and safety are paramount. The unique tractor’s configuration with front steering wheels and rear rubber tracks allows for easy and safe operation even on steep slopes, enabling maneuvers that would be impossible for any other vehicle equipped with conventional tires. With a width of 1,440 mm, a weight of 2,915 Kg, a brilliant 87 hp Yanmar engine, a certified speed of 35 Km/h, a low center of gravity and a wide range of options to choose from – including the ultra comfortable StarLight cab – the Mach 2 is a unique all-around tractor that can suit any farmer’s needs and do even the toughest jobs quickly, safely and efficiently.
Like all Antonio Carraro tractors, the Mach 2 comes with an extended warranty (EXG) of up to four years which confirms the field proven reliability of Carraro products.
SRH 9800 Infinity: infinite speeds
The SRH 9800 – the compact, 87 hp articulated reversible tractor with hydrostatic transmission which was finalist at the ‘Tractor of the Year 2013’ award and winner of the “Intervitis Interfructa Innovation 2013” award – has achieved great success among agricultural operators through its unique features, simplicity of use and working accuracy.
Now, Antonio Carraro presents at Fieragricola exhibition the new SRH 9800 Infinity. On the new version, the gearbox has been upgraded with new functions and the transmission has been improved to provide smooth, seamless speed progressions even when changing loads require the operator to shift on the go. The new Infinity transmission offers two mechanical speed ranges: ‘field’ from 0 to 15 Km/h and ‘road’ from 0 to 40 Km/h. Each range provides three hydraulic speeds that can be shifted on the go through a convenient button without affecting the tractor travel speed. The Eco system allows the tractor to automatically maintain the top speed at low engine rpm, resulting in reduced fuel consumption and lower noise and vibrations for greater operator’s comfort. The Infinity transmission, combined with the precision and efficiency of the hydrostatic system, makes the new SRH 9800 a dynamic and versatile tractor with infinite operating speeds. This allows the operator to precisely adjust the speed to the task at hand, making it ideally suited for applications
that require the operator to maintain a pre-set travel speed. The SRH 9800 Infinity is equipped with the ESC, a PTO rpm and working speed management system that allows the operator to set the travel speed and the PTO revolutions simultaneously and independently of each other, thereby ensuring optimum and constant performance, regardless of load variations. The SRH 9800 Infinity is a highly-specialized tractor that suits demanding application where precision, compact size, modular design and maneuverability are key requirements.
The SRH 9800 Infinity carries an extended warranty (EXG) of up to four years.
TRX 6400: new engine
Antonio Carraro relies on a new Italian-made (VM Motori) super-compact engine to power its TRX model of the Ergit Series. This 56 hp engine, that like all engines used on AC tractors features a direct-injection fuel system, delivers high torque already at low engine speeds (195 Nm/1,400 rpm) and
top-of-the-range performance. The TRX is a specialized multifunctional tractor tailored to work in confined spaces and on sloping terrains, such as narrow crop rows, large canopy crops, overhead trellis vineyards, steep slopes and terraces. Its compact design, its ultra-tight turning radius and its brilliant engine, combined with excellent stability and constant traction, ensure superior performance even on the toughest terrain. The ergonomically-designed reversible driving position makes work easier and faster, thereby improving operating efficiency and fuel economy. The TRX 6500 can be fitted with a variety of implements to handle a wide range of applications, including ploughing, pesticide spraying, fruit harvesting and barn management. The TRX 6400 carries an extended warranty (EXG) of up to four years.
Tigrone 5800 Jona: a new engine for the leader of equal-wheel tractors
The Tigrone Jona (from the ‘Tigrone’ range, Best Seller Award of the Year 2012 and 2013) has been updated with a new Yanmar engine in the 50 hp power range equipped with direct-injection fuel system, which has now become a standard feature across the whole AC tractor range and already meets emission standards slated for 2016. This new engine offers high torque already at low engine speeds and industry-leading fuel consumption achieved through a combustion chamber that optimizes the combustion process improving fuel efficiency. Specially designed to work on hills, mountains and in specialty crops where compact size, traction and maneuverability are key, the Tigrone Jona features a power lift with draft control function which, via a mixed position and draft control system, enables a precise and efficient operation of the implements. The spacious and easily accessible operator station and the uncluttered tunnel offer the operator a high level of comfort. The rear fender is equipped with grab handles for improved safety and comfort. The 12-speed synchronized transmission with synchro shuttle offers a wide selection of operating speeds for a variety of applications. The Tigrone Jona comes with four years’ extended
TGF 9800 Ergit 100 with pressurized cab
The TGF 9800 (87 hp) of the Ergit 100 Series is a super low profile tractor with different-sized tires which provides high traction and excellent maneuverability between narrow rows and allows ultra-tight turns due to the smaller front wheels. Operators can choose between as many as 16 tire combinations to tailor the tractor to a variety of needs, always ensuring efficiency and performance, whatever the crop or field conditions. Powerful yet compact, the TGF remains stable and perfectly balanced even when towing heavy implements, making it ideally suited to work in dense orchards, overhead trellis vineyards and greenhouses, as well as on steep slopes.
At Fieragricola 2014, the TGF will be on display with the pressurized Protector 100 cab, which provides superior comfort and exceptional visibility, while protecting the operator from air-borne contaminants. Despite the tractor’s compact size, the Protector 100 cab provide easy, comfortable access to the driving station. All-around visibility is ensured by the glass doors and back window, which also gives the operator an unobstructed view of the rear implement. The cab sealing and pressurization, ensured and monitored by the Air Control system, provides the operator with a safe and healthy work environment. Inside the Protector 100 cab, operators can be sure to breathe purified air, thereby protecting their health during pesticide spraying. The TGF 9800 comes with four years’ extended warranty (EXG).
