Valtra S Series tractors feature SmartTurn technology

by

It wasn’t the biggest new tractor roll-out at Agritechnica, but the Valtra S Series certainly attracted its fair share of attention thanks to a unique combination of size and technology.

The Valtra S Series is a sixth generation tractor from the Finnish manufacturer, which operates plants in Finland and Brazil. Models range from 280 to 420 horsepower and are powered by a new 8.4 litre AGCO Power engine, that delivers five percent greater power output and nine percent greater torque than previous tractors, explains Valtra’s product marketing manager Timo Mattila.

The S Series is fully loaded with smart farming technology including SmartTurn automatic headland turning. “SmartTurn is one part of the precision farming technologies, which make the headland turn automatic,” notes Mattila. “In the previous systems it only made driving the field automatic, but now the tractor can also turn fully automatically on the headland.”

In this report, Mattila tells RealAgriculture’s Bernard Tobin that farmers in Europe and South America will see the tractors later in 2024, but at this time there are no plans to bring the S Series to North America.
