500 hp ANTS
Feb 08, 2011
With up to 563 hp, the two module ANTS ag vehicle was unveiled during the 60th anniversary celebration for Valtra. ANTS (which has its roots in the current Valtra lineup of the A, N, T, and S Series tractors), are built to be versatile, efficient, lightweight and powerful.
The two modules include a solider unit and a worker unit. The two can be combined into a single unit with three axles, eight wheels and 536 hp.
The cab is adjustable along the “spinal core” of the ANTS modules. The cab window features the control panel, the controls are voice activated, and the cab is outfitted with intelligent armrests.
ANTS use a drivetrain technology with an electric motor located in each of the wheels–the wheels are expandable and respond for traction in all working conditions.
