Valtra’s 5th generation model range is now complete with the all-new Q Series that fits between the popular T and S Series. The Q Series, designed, engineered, and manufactured in Finland, is a tractor for large farms and contractors that seek performance and integrated smart technology in the 230-305 HP range.
The Q Series is an easy-to-use, intelligent machine built for Pros allowing customers to perform any farming or contracting task and handle any implement with ease and efficiency, thanks to the reliable 7.4 litre AGCO Power engine and the industry-leading AGCO CVT transmission. The large comfortable cab offers great visibility, excellent suspension and the award-winning SmartTouch user interface.
Total cost of ownership of the Q Series is favourable. Easy to use precision farming solutions, a powerful, robust and reliable design, and excellent customer support enable Q customers to maximize their performance and ensure fuel efficiency, efficiencies in working hours, and reduced inputs. This is a winning combination that will deliver the best tractor experience for this horsepower segment.
“The Q Series is a high-quality tractor with a capital Q and customers deserve an equally high-quality service. To ensure the best tractor experience we have introduced a certification programme for Q Series dealers”, comments Valtra sales director Matti Tiitinen.
Q Series dealers offer expert knowledge in sales and aftersales service, a high level of spare part availability, service contracts, and flexible finance options for complete cost control. Furthermore, Q certified dealers offer a 100% connected fleet to guarantee maximum uptime using the latest remote diagnostic tools to schedule predictive maintenance for when it best suits customers. At handover, special attention will be made to making sure the customer’s Q Series is set up with their implements and all smart farming capabilities from day one.
The 7.4 litre engine ensures reliability and fuel efficiency. Maximum power is available at very low engine speeds of 1850 rpm and the maximum torque stays consistent in the range of 1000 to 1500 rpm. The long stroke engine easily generates the high power and torque that is available in the Q Series. Valtra’s EcoPower principle has been applied to the entire Q Series range, further reducing fuel consumption. Maximum driving speed is achieved with only 1500 rpm.
The transmission is easy to operate. The Q Series’ electronic transmission management automatically selects the lowest possible engine revs for the work to maintain the lowest fuel consumption, and distributes the power accordingly to the hydraulics, PTO, or transmission. The driver simply adjusts the settings to whichever best suits the driver or task. With droop control the operator can change the behaviour of the tractor for even more economic or intensive operating to save either fuel or time, depending on customer’s cost-saving preferences.
The Q is not too light, not too heavy with a weight of 9.2 tons and protects soil from compaction. The maximum gross weight is 16 tons which guarantees a high payload and it means always transporting load legally. The Q Series is compact, has a low total height and a long wheelbase. Therefore, the centre of gravity is low which makes the Q very stable. The Aires Suspension in combination with the long wheelbase increases the pulling force of the tractor and reduces power hopping. The grip to the ground is increased because the air suspension has a faster reaction time compared to industry standard hydraulic suspension.
At road speeds, power is transmitted almost purely mechanically, which means fast and smooth acceleration. Both the cab and the front axle are air-suspended and they are synchronized to ensure a smooth ride in any environment and any temperature, whether harvesting on a hot summer day or clearing snow from the roads in winter.
From Pro to Pro
Drivers will appreciate the Q Series’ all-day comfort with its air suspension, the award winning and easy-to use SmartTouch armrest, ergonomics, visibility, and smart farming features.
The Q Series will fit into any fleet thanks to Valtra Connect advanced telemetry and easy-to-use task management enabling smooth FMIS and Agrirouter integration. All smart farming features in the Q Series are controlled smartly and simply from the SmartTouch user interface. Task files can be stored so that it only takes a few swipes and taps to start tasks, which are fun to complete as ISOBUS features provide the most accurate and efficient outcome. In combination with Auto U-pilot, SmartTurn levels-up the Q Series’ ease-of-use. With SmartTurn the field operating experience becomes fully automated, freeing the drivers’ attention to focus fully on the implement and task at hand. Drivers can choose between automatic turning patterns to minimize soil compaction and increase speed and efficiency.
In true Valtra form, the Q Series can be optimised even further with Valtra Unlimited. From upgrades to the cab or tractor colour to specialist adaptions for contracting work in the field or on the road, Valtra customers can truly tailor the Q Series to their needs.
Q Series can be optimised with the Valtra Unlimited automatic central lubricating system that helps ensure the Q Series is always running smoothly and avoids laborious manual lubricating. Valtra’s intelligent central tyre inflation system protects the structure of the soil in the field and optimises fuel consumption on the road. Valtra Unlimited brings safety to the Q Series with new integrated LED front work lights with balanced illumination in front and to both sides. Auto beacons come on when the speed reaches 25 kmph. And when the working day is over, the follow-me-home function illuminates the yard for increased safety, as the front waist working lights stay on for a period of time when you exit the cab.
Everything about the Q Series is designed to reduce inputs, maximize yields, optimize fuel efficiency and assist customers in fulfilling regulators’ requirements, meeting their own sustainability goals, and easily report them. The Q Series is built in the Suolahti tractor plant in Finland, which is run entirely on renewable energy.
