October - November 2014 | Back

Always focused on specialized farming, Valpadana will be present at EIMA International with a range of compact tractors for use in vineyards and orchards, for haymaking and greenhouse growing, and even maintenance in urban areas. Among the machines on display at the Bologna event, the VP 9000 Series will be in the spotlight with two models – VP 9095 and VP 90105 – equipped with 3.2-litre four-cylinder FPT engines that meet Tier 3 emission standards and deliver 88 and 95 Hp, respectively. But the VP 9000 tractors are especially characterized by their 16 FW + 16 RV transmissions with mechanical Synchro Shuttle and standard creeper transmission (0.8 to 40 km/h), as well as offering a PTO with electro-hydraulic engagement, a lift with 2,300 kg capacity and 50 + 31 l/min hydraulics. Worth a special mention among the features offered by this range is the reversible driver's seat (standard on all models), and the front axle with 4WD and 100% electro-hydraulic differential locking (front and rear). The bridge controls are ergonomic, allowing the new Valpadana operational features to be managed with intuitive and easy controls that integrate mechanical, hydraulic and electronic systems. To enhance operator comfort in the VP Series 9000, Valpadana has included a standard De-Clutch button on the synchronized shuttle lever, with which it is possible to reverse direction without pressing the clutch pedal. In the 65-75 Hp power range, Valpadana offers the 7000 VP series, designed primarily for professional use in the specialized agricultural sector. Two models are available in both articulated and steering-wheel versions; the VP 7000 range is powered by 3200 cc 4-cylinder turbo  FPT engines that meet Tier 3A emission standards. The 16 FW + 16 RV transmission is equipped with mechanical power shuttle and standard creeper transmission (0.8 to 40 km/h). Among the other pluses of the 7000 VP Series are the electro-hydraulic controlled PTO, the 2,300 kg capacity lift, 50 + 31 l/min hydraulic flow and a reversible driver's seat.
