Versatile Introduces New 2018 4WD, DeltaTrack Tractors
Torque Optimization Increases Drawbar Pull up to 15%
The 2018 Versatile four-wheel drive and DeltaTrack includes new tractor models
with more horsepower and torque, new features and available options. The Versatile factory will soon begin production on the highest horsepower tractor built in Winnipeg with the new Versatile 610, with 605 HP, available in four-wheel drive and DeltaTrack.
New 2018 Versatile four-wheel drives and DeltaTracks feature the latest in Cummins Tier 4 Final engine technology, an integrated Cummins after-treatment and turbo that increases torque and fuel economy compared to previous generation engines.
New planetary axle ratios and changes to the engine and transmission software result in up to 15% more torque in the DeltaTrack and up to 7% in the large frame four-wheel drive. This provides more pull at the drawbar by putting more power to the ground. New weight packages can be integrated into the rear frame without interfering with drawbar visibility while allowing for optimum ballast.
The largest cabs in the farm equipment industry are on Versatile tractors, and a suspended cab is now available on large frame four-wheel drives and DeltaTracks. The DeltaTrack features the most advanced track suspension system on the market and, combined with the new cab suspension system, offers a superior ride and operator comfort while protecting the tractor from shock using the multi-axis bogie technology from Camso.
