Lower Horsepower Tractors Extend Series
Valtra's N Series now offers a broader horsepower range with the addition of the N82 and the N92. Providing 82 hp and 92 hp respectively, these tractors are powered by four-cylinder, 4.4-liter SisuDiesel engines. The design of the two models can be attributed to their lower weight (approximately 400 lb. lighter than other N models); the fuel tank acts as a mid-frame and protects the front axle, reducing weight on the front axle without reducing strength and front-end carrying capacity. Standard features include a hydraulic shuttle and three-step programmable Powershift transmission that features 24 or 36 forward and reverse gears. Automatic four-wheel drive and automatic differential locks can be manually controlled. For more information, contact your Valtra dealer, or visit www.valtra.com.

Wide Pickup With Gentle Handling
For ideal windrow placement, Kuhn North America introduces the Kuhn 300 Series Merge Maxx merger. The hay tool features a wide pickup and a cross conveyor that can be adjusted for precise windrow placement. Its overall working width is 9'6". The Merge Maxx provides gentle handling, which results in less leaf loss and less contamination from dirt and stones. The merger builds a fluffy windrow for easier harvesting and requires a tractor with a minimum of 50 hp.
