Valtra unveils new 'largest and most powerful' S Series
Finnish tractor brand, Valtra, has unveiled the latest generation of its flagship high-horsepower tractor – the S Series, nicknamed 'The Boss'.
Valtra unveils new S Series at its Finnish factory in Suolahti.
According to the Agco-owned company, significant investment in the Valtra's home factory in Suolahti, in Finland, has facilitated the production of the sixth generation of the S Series.
At 280-420hp, this new S Series is Valtra’s largest and most powerful tractor, promising high torque at low revs, the company said. The 8.4L Agco Power engine and CVT transmission offer a 5 per cent reduction in revs and up to 10 per cent decrease in fuel consumption, depending on conditions, compared to its predecessor, the company claims.
Several new features and improvements differentiate the sixth generation S Series. A new design, improved access, a new spacious cab, an increased number of lights (all of which are LED), and more versatility for all tasks are just a few of the features.
As expected, the factory fitted TwinTrac reverse drive system and SmartTouch user interface feature, as well as a range of suspension options for front axle and cab. The S Series tractors can also be fitted with Valtra’s Skyview cab option, and the entire S Series is now available with Valtra's Unlimited customisation options, the company said.
The new S Series was unveiled at a special event at the Finnish factory's Suolahti site on September 21.
The S Series global launch
The sixth generation S Series marks the first global launch of a Valtra tractor. Serial production is being ramped up in the second quarter of 2024 and first deliveries in Europe can be expected in the summer. Deliveries to regions with less-regulated emission standards, such as South America, are planned to begin in the second half of 2024. Valtra will present the S Series in field and customer events worldwide from November 2023.
Valtra will be showing the sixth generation S Series at Agritechnica in Hanover, Germany between November 12-18.
