The new DT Series tractors are complete redesigns for AGCO, adding a wide range of comfort features based on customer feedback. “We’ve listened to our customers talk about what they want in their tractors,” says Jason Hoult, product marketing manager for high horsepower tractors. “We added bigger, quieter cabs, more advanced engine management, and breakthrough transmission technology.”
The series features four models with new, higher horsepower ratings, including: the DT205B with 205 PTO hp; DT225B with 225 PTO hp; DT250B with 250 PTO hp; and DT275B rated at 275 PTO hp with a maximum 350 ISO engine hp. The new AGCO SISU POWER 8.4 L engine introduces e3 Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology to agriculture, which is said to significantly reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulates without sacrificing horsepower.
Also featured in the new tractor line is an all-new continuously variable transmission (CVT) with Dynamic Tractor Management (DTM). The DT Series CVT with DTM is the most efficient, stepless transmission on the market, reducing the amount of horsepower and fuel needed to do the job. The CVT offers two variable speed ranges: from 0 to 17 mph for field applications, and up to 32 mph with the optional front-axle suspension system.
In 2009, AGCO will be showing off the new design at dealerships across the country via a specially equipped travelling display. Contact your local AGCO dealer for more information. For more on the new tractor line, visit the AGCO Tractor web site.
