New ArmaTrac Tractor Launched at Livestock 2013

ArmaTrac is launching its new 4WD 904e tractor at Livestock 2013. The 94hp (70kw) machine is powered by the latest Perkins 850 Series engine, through a Carrero transmission, and is specifically designed and built with the livestock farmer in mind.

The new innovative Perkins 854E-E34TA engine is fully compliant with EU Stage IIIB, EPA Tier 4 Interim and MLIT Step 4 emissions regulations due to come into force this summer. Turbocharged and air to air charge cooled, the 3.4 litre, 4-cylinder unit has a high power density, combined with excellent torque, which allows a lower cubic capacity and so creates more space to package the new wall flow aftertreatment unit.

The Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) technology on the aftertreatment unit performs through the whole cycle of the engine for maximum efficiency. The particulate filter consists of a porous ceramic silicon carbide wall flow delivering a minimum of 90% removal of particulate matter and a minimum 3,000 hour ash service interval. It also contains a Diesel Oxidation catalyst to remove hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and the soluble organic fraction, with the gasses passing straight through the device rather than through the walls.

The four wheel drive ArmaTrac 904e has a 12 forward, 12 reverse full synchromesh Carraro transmission, with power shift and forward/reverse shuttle, giving the tractor superb manoeuvrability both round farm buildings and in the field. A 48.5 L/min hydraulic system offers four hydraulic valves and 3,000kg of lift through the CAT 2 linkage.

Efficiency is the watch word as the independent and synchronised PTO runs at a 540 or 540e which allows the tractor to work on lighter jobs with lower revs and therefore lower fuel consumption. The 110L fuel tank also allows the operator to work without the need to top up regularly.

Driver comfort is also much in mind as the luxury cab is ergonomically designed with all round visibility giving drivers an unparalleled view, digitally controlled air conditioning, is dust proof, has plenty of space and flat surfaces.

Air-con aside, electronics are in limited supply on the ArmaTrac904e with the majority of functions manually controlled via mechanical hand levers, including the pto, hydraulics and external valves. Brakes are hydraulic control, five friction discs with oil bath at each wheel.

ArmaTrac tractors are designed and manufactured in Turkey by Erkunt Tractor Industry, Ankara and is represented in the UK and Ireland by Broglio Limited. The company is currently actively seeking dealers in all parts of Britain, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
