VALTRA'S big launch of last year was its new T Series and it appears that the company's faith in its new model has been more than justified.

The T Series was made the 'Machine of the Year' award in the 180-280hp category at the recent SIMA Show, with the selection made by 19 independent agricultural journalists representing 17 European countries.

Valtra says that from its launch in November, it has been a huge success story, both among dealers and customers. Deliveries started in December and the order backlog of the T Series is the highest ever experienced by Valtra for any model.

This fourth generation of the T Series has seven models ranging from 155 to 250hp, all with a stylish and spacious new cab which focusses on driver comfort and is the only tractor brand to utilize AIRES+ pneumatic front axle suspension.

Four transmission types (HiTech, Active,Versu and Direct) matches up to most operations and conditions.
