Agritechnica 2019

SAME affirms its mission as a creator of specialised and utility tractors.

Agritechnica 2019 -  the historical Italian brand has chosen to showcase its tractor ranges for orchard and vineyard, and its multi-role models for open field and general farm tasks. All of these models feature an extensive use of the most advanced technology available today for tractor applications.

The red-liveried brand presented the three models spearheading its range of specialised machines to the international public at the German expo exhibition - all of which feature the CVT continuously variable transmission developed specifically by SDF for vineyard and  orchard machines. In addition to its extremely compact construction and superlative reliability, the SDF CVT transmission also boasts class-beating efficiency and unrivalled comfort. The multiple award-winning Frutteto CVT S 115 ActiveDrive - an extraordinarily compact and agile machine and winner of the “Best Specialized” category of Tractor of the Year 2019 - will be on show combined with the Grégoire Ecoprotect over-row sprayer. As well as offering the ideal solution for working between more broadly spaced rows, the Frutteto CVT 105 ActiveDrive is also perfectly at home in the open field, making it an excellent choice for multiple crop farms. SAME will also be presenting its range-topping specialised tractor at Agritechnica 2019, the Frutteto CVT 100 ActiveSteer - the world's first specialised machine with 4 wheel steering.

SAME will also be presenting its two flagship utility tractors at the German expo. This first is the Explorer 110, powered by a FARMotion engine - which attain compliance with Stage III B emissions regulations simply with a maintenance-free DOC catalytic converter that needs no additives - and boasting a potent hydraulic system with a primary pump with an output of up to 90 l/min for the lift and rear distributors, plus a secondary pump for the hydraulic steering and actuators.

The second is SAME's definitive all-rounder, the Dorado Classic 90.4, a tractor renowned for its extraordinary versatility and manoeuvrability, which now features an updated design in keeping with the style of the broader Dorado family. Completing the package are a choice of dependable, fuel-efficient FARMotion Stage III B engines and an ergonomically designed cab with a 4-post structure for unobstructed all-round visibility. A low centre of gravity and 4-wheel braking ensure sure-footed safety even when working on steep gradients. With a potent dual pump hydraulic system, with 4 or 6 way mechanically controlled rear distributors and a rear lift with a capacity of 2650 kg (or, as an option, up to 3600 kg), Dorado tractors are not only perfect for general tasks when working in limited  spaces but also capable machines that can take heavier duty field applications in their stride.
