With an impressive 280-420hp, the S Series is Valtra’s largest and most powerful tractor, promising high torque at low revs. The 8.4L AGCO Power engine and CVT transmission offer a 5% reduction in revs and up to 10% decrease in fuel consumption, making the S Series one of the most sustainable tractors both in terms of production and supporting farmers to grow sustainably. The new S Series places high emphasis on comfort and visibility, and offers all the intelligent technology farmers would expect. With the new machines now being produced in Suolahti, this heralds a new era for the 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 introductions for the 6th generation S Series. The factory fitted TwinTrac reverse drive system and SmartTouch user interface have always been popular features with the S Series drivers. The new S Series brings a number of upgrades including a range of suspension options for front axle and cab, and now S Series tractors can also be fitted with Valtra’s Skyview cab option and Valtra Unlimited customisations.
The design of the new S Series draws inspiration from Valtra’s popular 5th generation design, but there are some notable changes. Valtra’s Industrial Design & User Experience Department Lead Kimmo Wihinen explains, “The 6th generation S Series combines form and function in a modern, aggressive form language that conveys the S Series’ power. The sleek slope of the bonnet gives exceptional forward visibility. As an industry-first, the S Series features a fully integrated light unit including LED low/high beam, LED daytime running lights as well as close range LED working lights in the front. This provides an exceptionally high level of light output and gives the 6th generation S Series its distinctive look”.
Valtra’s SmartTurn automatic headland turning completes the autonomous field driving experience with four turning patterns –Part Field Mode, U-Turn, Y-turn and K-turn, that allow the driver to work the field in the most efficient way. Additionally, the new S Series tractors are available with Unlimited’s popular Central Lubrication System (CLS) and a state-of-the-art sound system (including Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto). The popular VIEW camera system also comes with the S Series; this innovative system uses cameras mounted on the tractor, a high-definition display, and advanced machine learning algorithms to automatically detect objects moving in front of the tractor and warn the driver for enhanced safety in the field and on the road.
