Agritechnica: Valtra S-series gets power boost

Valtra also pulled the covers off its updated flagship S-series tractor at the show.

Updates include a new six-cylinder 8.4-litre Agco/Sisu engine that develops a maximum power of 370hp. The twin turbo block also generates 1,590Nm of torque and there’s a boost function that takes power up to 400hp.

The rest of the changes are largely cosmetic. A sleeker, rounded bonnet has been added, which the maker says will eventually trickle down to the smaller models.

There have been a few subtle changes inside, too. The old black-and-white screen has been dropped in favour of the colour one used in the N- and T-series and the dashboard has been changed a bit, too. Valtra says there are more upgrades planned for the cab soon.
