Versatile has developed a new DeltaTrack for low-speed, high-torque requirements, the company has announced. Called the DeltaTrack Creeper, the tractor is the first of its kind to be factory-approved for use in low speed applications such as tile plowing.
The DeltaTrack Creeper is based on the DeltaTrack Scraper Special but will run in-field at a lower rate of speed, 0.95 mph (1.52 km/h) at 1800 RPM. Hydraulic flow, peak torque and full horsepower are still available when necessary, the company says.
Standard on the new DeltaTrack Creeper are Camoplast 6500 Series tracks, available in 30” or 36” widths. Designed with an extra fabric layer connecting the drive lugs, the tall narrow tread bars provide aggressive traction in loose, slippery soil.
Three models are available from 450 to 550 horsepower. The DeltaTrack Creeper (450DTC, 500DTC & 550DTC) feature the Cummins QSX15 engine paired with a 16-speed powershift transmission. The machine includes a 2-year factory warranty.
A limited number of Versatile DeltaTrack Creeper tractors will be available for spring 2015 with prices starting at $475,368.
