The Agroplus Profiline 420 is reliable, competitively priced and economical to run: ideal as the main tractor in a small to medium farm, or as an intelligent and effective addition to supplement an existing equipment pool of more powerful machines for a large, complex farming enterprise. Its short wheelbase and impressive steering angle (55 degrees for 4WD versions and 70 degrees for 2WD versions) make it the ideal choice for working in very confined, maze-like spaces. Agroplus also boasts an extraordinary weight/power ratio, making it one of the best choices available for open field applications.
Extraordinary speed control is endured by a transmission with five gears, three ranges (with supercreeper gear) and three power shift ratios, for a remarkable forty-five forward and reverse speeds in all. The three-stage Powershift transmission ensures quick gear shifting action and varies the ratio used in relation to demand, offering two significant benefits, by both compensating for changes in load and maintaining an optimum engine speed. Hydraulic reverse shuttle with adjustable response for immediate, smooth direction inversions. For total safety, the control lever of the reverse shuttle, situated under the steering wheel, also has a neutral position. The “Comfort Clutch” feature maximises driver comfort by permitting gear shifts by simply pressing a button and without using the clutch: the function also ensures that gear shifts are always performed quickly and smoothly, which is indispensable especially for transport applications.
The hydraulic system has a dedicated 54 l/min pump which feeds the rear lift and the four or six way rear distributors with flow regulator. The hydrostatic steering system has its own independent pump, to ensure that the Agroplus is extraordinarily manoeuvrable even at low engine speeds. For high precision jobs, where accurate implement management is crucial, the optional rear lift, with a capacity of 3000 kg (or 3600 kg, with supplementary rams) ensures total control.
An outstanding driver area for both platform and cab versions, designed with painstaking attention to detail. Comfort and ergonomics: the driver sits on an air-sprung seat that adapts ideally to weight and stature, and has plenty of space to work in comfort, with all the controls within easy reach and arranged rationally. A simple push of an electrohydraulic switch effortlessly engages the PTO, dual traction and differential locks.
The cab is soundproofed and pressurised. The air conditioning system is housed in the headliner, and feeds air ducts both in the ceiling and routed towards the floor, for a total of eight directional vents in all. The high visibility panoramic roof, available for applications with the front loader, offers an unobstructed view of the implement mounted at the ends of the loader arms.
