The entire Valpadana specialized range at Sima 2017

From the 4600 series super compact models to the professional VP 9000 tractors, the complete Valpadana range is on show at Sima 2017.

A specialized tractor range well known in the market comes with a wide choice of configurations: IS (equal wheels), AR (articulated with equal wheels) or VRM (with bigger rear wheels).

Due to the endless possibilities offered by the VP4600, VP7000 and VP9000 series, Valpadana is able to meet all the needs for specialization in intensive cultivations such as vineyards and orchards, greenhouses and nurseries, as well as those in the public and private ground care sector.

Available in versions ISM (equal-wheel), ARM (articulated equal-wheel) and VRM (with bigger rear wheels), the VP 4600 series is easy to handle and versatile, these distinguishing features are obtained thanks to ultra-compact dimensions (the minimum width is merely 970 mm) and a turning radius of just 2,320 mm.

Other characteristics of the VP 4600 series, which features 23 to 48 HP Yanmar engines, include the powerful oil-immersed multiple-plate braking system, the 8 FWD + 4 REV transmission with synchronized reverse shuttle and the fully independent PTO with dedicated oil-immersed multiple-plate clutch.

The standard equipment includes a power lift with drop-speed regulator and 1000 kg maximum lifting capacity. Top performance is achieved with optional extras which includes up to 3 double-acting control valves and a power lift with up/down/float functions or 2 double-acting control valves with power lift and draft control function.

The VP 7000 Series is a highly professional range and is presented at the Paris venue in the 7080 ISM (Equal-Wheel) footstep version, but there is also an articulated (AR) version and an optional cab available for both.

The range is equipped with FPT 3200 cc. 4-cylinder turbo Tier 3 engines.

The VP 7000 Series also features a transmission with 16 FWD + 16 REV speeds plus mechanical reverse shuttle and creeper as standard equipment (speeds from 0.8 to 40 km/h) completely manufactured by Argo Tractors. These VP 7000 tractors have a new Joystick with full proportional control over all users: continuous oil delivery with flow control, shut-off valves on the hydraulic taps and floating functions on the double-acting sections, electrohydraulically controlled PTO, 2,300 kg power lift, 50 + 31 l/min hydraulic circuit, reversible driver's position and front axle with 4WD engagement and electrohydraulic diff locks. 2

The VP 9000 Series is top of the Valpadana range and visitors to the Paris venue will be able to examine the 90105 IS model in the cabbed version with reversible driver's seat as standard equipment.

The VP9000 Series represents the top of the Valpadana range of equal-wheel tractors. Increasingly professional and specialized, the VP9000 series implements Valpadana's industrial and manufacturing synergies with Argo Tractors, thereby meeting the requirements of the specialized tractor market in a targeted manner. The two models, 9095 and 90105, feature 88 HP and 95 HP power ratings, respectively.

Manufactured by Argo Tractors, the transmission provides 16 FWD + 16 REV speeds for all models and is equipped with synchronized mechanical reverse shuttle and De-Clutch button, allowing the operator to reverse the tractor without having to depress the clutch pedal.

The rear power lift has 2,300 kg lifting capacity. The double-pump hydraulic circuit features 81 l/min total flow rate and is available with up to 4 control valves electronically operated using a proportional joystick.

All models are available in both footstep and cabbed versions, this latter one featuring a monocoque structure and an air suspension seat as well as a an easily serviced high-efficiency ventilation and air conditioning system.
