Italian OEM Antonio Carraro has announced it will showcase a host of new enhancements to its machines at next month’s International Agricultural and Gardening Machinery Exhibition, EIMA 2016, in Bologna, Italy.
The new Tony 9800 TR and SR tractors are, for the first time, being run by a ‘Made in AC’ software that allows the operator to personalize their working style, maximizing results and simplifying procedures.
Both are fitted with a 4-cylinder, 87hp engine with a synchronized PTO set at 540/540E, with electrohydraulic control and progressive engagement.
On request, the tractor can be fitted with a new FOPS and ROPS homologated Cat. 4 pressurized AIR cab, which protects the operator from harmful dust, aerosols and vapors.
The Tony, when fitted with the cab, reaches a maximum height of 2.1 meters.
The Tony 9800 SR will enter into production in the articulated chassis version. It is a particularly agile model when used in rowed crops and when good handling is required.
This tractor can be used with many kinds of equipment thanks to its hydraulic transmission, which guarantees modulated starts, the memorization of the parameters, and the personalization of the operator’s working requirements, which enables the vehicle to be adapted to their needs and drive style.
The new model TR 7600 Infinity sees the joining of the AC Infinity hydrostatic transmission to a reversible tractor with a wide track ACTIOTM steering chassis. It is designed for working on slopes, carrying out haying on mountainsides, and grass cutting on roadside embankments, as well as maintenance on roadways, parks, urban areas and sports grounds.
The new engine is a brand new 4-cylinder, 74hp, turbo Kohler homologated in Phase 3B. It has two mechanical speed ranges (from 0-15km/h and from 0-40km/h), each of which has three speeds that are hydrostatically controlled by a joystick selector, which can be engaged even when in motion without losing traction or causing an interruption of power. The forward speed pedal assists braking even on slopes and the vehicle comes to a halt on release of the accelerator, even without using the brakes or the clutch.
The Mach 2 and Mach 4 will be presented for the first time in camouflage style at EIMA 2016. Both are reversible and make complex maneuvers simple and safe, even under extreme circumstances such as on muddy and slippery ground, in adverse weather conditions, and on slopes that would be inaccessible for a vehicle with tires. The rubber track system reduces ground compaction. Both are available with the StarLight cab and have a wide range of optional extras to satisfy all requirements. Both have road homologation for speeds of up to 40km/h.
