The button-operated Speed-Fix device allows the operator to set and maintain the ideal travel speed for the task at hand.
SRH 9800 Infinity – Infinite possibilities
After winning numerous awards at major trade shows around Europe, the SRH 9800 Infinity – a compact, narrowtrack tractor with reversible driver station and articulated chassis – continues to grow in popularity. Powered by an 87 hp Yanmar engine, this tractor features an innovative continuous-variable hydrostatic transmission which provides the operator with infinite operating speeds while dispensing with the gearshift lever. This transmission offers two mechanical speed ranges: 0 to 15 Km/h and 0 to 40 Km/h. Each range provides three hydrostatic speeds that are shifted through a selector switch integrated into the joystick. Speed changes can be made on the go without losing power or traction. The tractor features a forward pedal which assists braking when going downhill by stopping the vehicle automatically upon releasing the accelerator, without using the clutch or brakes. The tractor travel can be controlled either through a lever located under the steering wheel or through a button integrated into the joystick enabling the operator to virtually control all tractor operations from a single controller. The transmission is further equipped with an Eco system which, when the tractor reaches 40 km/h, automatically reduces engine speed from 2,600 to 2,100 rpm, thereby lowering noise and fuel consumption. The SRH 9800 Infinity relies on a highly-efficient hydraulic system with as many as 11 hydraulic outlets and a vertical tie rod, both controlled by joystick. An additional feature is the ESC device, which allows the operator to adjust the travel speed and the PTO revolutions independently of each other to maintain constant performance, regardless of load variations. Available also with sound-insulated, air-conditioned Starlight cab mounted on silent blocks, the SRH 9800 Infinity reflects Antonio Carraro’s commitment to offer each customer a tailor-made product with custom options designed to suit specific soil conditions – be it steep slopes, uneven grounds or unstable surfaces.
TRH 9800 - Universal
The TRH 9800 is a multi-purpose equal-wheel tractor with reversible driving position. The electronically-controlled
hydrostatic transmission is integrated with the engine, an 87 hp, 3,300 cc model with four valves per cylinder and
electronic injection system. The TRH 9800 features a computer system that controls the ground speed, the engine
rpm, the acceleration and the PTO revs. The hydrostatic drive makes this tractor ideal to handle a wide range of
implements, from multi-blade lawn mowers for large areas to digging trenchers that may require fine variations to
ground speed to suit soil conditions. The TRH 9800 features an electronic proportional joystick for control of the
implement hydraulics and a fully customizable man-machine interface for added driving precision and comfort.
The TRH 9800 can be fitted with either a StarLight cab or an EasyStar 6-post half-cab. A comprehensive range of

Mach 4 – Extraordinary
The Mach 4 is an 87 hp articulated reversible tracked tractor with four independent rubber tracks. This quadtrack
offers an innovative solution which combines the benefits of both a tired tractor and a conventional tracked vehicle without the drawback of each. While it can travel on road up to a speed of 40 km/h, thereby reducing the time and cost of road transfer compared to conventional tracked tractors, the Mach 4 will provide extraordinary tractive power, ensuring unequalled performance on the roughest terrains and enabling maneuvers that would be
unimaginable for a conventional tractor. Emphasized by the black finish and by the front bull bar, the aggressive
design of the Mach 4 reflects the mix of ruggedness and style of an extraordinary tractor that is designed for operators with extraordinary needs. The advantages of this phenomenal Antonio Carraro tractor are well proven: great versatility of the reversible driver station Rev-Guide System RGS and excellent traction ensured by the ACTIO oscillating chassis, which, combined with the longitudinal oscillation of each track and optimum weight distribution, causes less soil compaction than a human foot. The machine “floats” even on the crumbliest terrains, ensuring maximum grip without slippage even on muddy, unstable or marshy grounds. The precise, smooth steering of the articulated chassis enables the Mach 4 to maneuver easily through tight turns and move nimbly between crop rows.
For the Mach 4, Antonio Carraro offers a wide range of convenience features, including: Superbrake braking system, gearbox with E-Drive reverse shuttle, CleanFix self-cleaning radiator system, JPM joystick integrated into the armrest to allow easy operation of the power lift and all implements (pruner, forklift, snow blade, trailer and much more).
