Extraordinary power with impressive fuel economy. Four-cylinder Turbo Intercooler engines with a unitary capacity of 1 000cc. Engines offering exactly the right amount of power for the job: the 1 litre size is the best compromise today between smaller, sub-litre configurations, which are very compact but underpowered, and conventional larger engines with capacities above 1 000cc.
85hp/63kW engine is equipped with an intercooler, which cools the air compressed by the turbocharger, increasing the mass of air delivered to the cylinders and improving combustion. This considerably increases power and reduces fuel consumption, while maintaining lower engine operating temperatures.
Much more advanced than conventional rotary pump systems, the exclusive SDF injection system with individual pumps for each cylinder maximises engine power (with very high injection pressures of up to 1,400 bar) and ensures extremely short injection times, while the electronic engine management system varies the injection timing itself in relation to load to optimise consumption.
An electronic governor lets the driver set and store an engine speed, which the electronic control unit then maintains at a constant value in any condition and even with varying load, for constant, uniform results. The engine powering Agroplus F model use an innovative exhaust gas recirculation system, to achieve compliance with Tier III emissions regulations.
A range of speeds to choose from. Agroplus F tractor is equipped as standard with a PTO with a multiplate wet clutch and selectable speeds of 540/540ECO/1 000rpm, or with a synchronised PTO. An optional 1 000rpm front PTO is also available.
Safety and agility. The compact design of the tractor, front axle layout, small size of the engine and slim forms of the flanks contribute to an impressive front ground clearance, keeping the components of the front axle transmission well protected. For maximum traction even in the most challenging terrain conditions, Agroplus F tractors are equipped with an exclusive and specifically developed AUTO 4WD system, allowing the driver to engage and disengage four-wheel drive with extreme ease.
All Agroplus versions feature an integral all-wheel braking system, with low wear wet disc brakes on all four wheels for superlative stopping power in all conditions – even on steep gradients or at high speed. The maximum steering angle permitted by the smooth, nimble steering system differs according to model: with a steering angle of 50 degrees for the tractors 4WD and 70 degrees for the 2WD variants.
Size matters: both inside and out. Agroplus F tractors are available as platform or cab variants: platform versions are all compact, but differ in size according to model to cater for every possible application. Agroplus F is available with two tyre size dependent platform variants (measuring 28” and 24” in height at the mudguards respectively), both of which mounted on silent-blocks, and a 28” cab.
The large screen and windows ensure a clear view of the surroundings: fully glazed four A-pillar cab and windscreen with no central cross bar for total 360° visibility. The comfortable work environment of the soundproofed, pressured cab with an effective air conditioning system, is complemented to perfection by superior ergonomics, with intelligently and intuitively laid out colour-coded controls for immediate identification: each colour corresponds to a specific operation, allowing the driver to quickly and instinctively find and use the right button.
Power and versatility under total control. Extraordinary versatility and efficiency are the key strengths of Agroplus transmissions. These transmissions were developed and tested in collaboration with the SDF Engineering Division, which boasts unrivalled experience in the design and continuous development of transmissions for specialised applications.
The base version, with synchronised shuttle, is offered in two configurations: with the extremely simple to use Over Speed gearbox, for a total of thirty forward speeds and fifteen reverse speeds, or with the three stage Over Speed Powershift gearbox with supercreeper gear, for a remarkable forty-five FWD-REV speeds. The Over Speed function allows a top speed of 40km/h with any tyre size fitted, without having to change any mechanical parts inside the transmission.
Total precision and simplicity of use. The hydraulic system is equipped with a single 54 litre/min pump as standard (or with dual tandem pumps with capacities of 33 and 25 litre/min as an option) and offered in three configurations: six-way with flow regulator and three mechanical distributors; duplicated four-way system, with two mechanical distributors for central implements; or six-way with two electrohydraulic distributors plus one duplicated distributor with flow regulator, controlled from a joystick on the driver console.
The system adjusts the oil delivery and return flow for optimised usage of any implement mounted on the centre of tractor or at the front, for maximised productivity. The rear lift can carry heavy implements, with an impressive load capacity of 3 000kg, while the front lift has a smaller load capacity of 1 500kg. The Electronic Hitch Regulation (EHR) electronically controlled rear lift is available as an option: an implement offering extreme precision, which is incredibly simple to use.
