A Tractor With A Breathalyzer
Sep 19, 2013
AGCO’s Valtra tractor brand has built a reputation for being highly customizable. The company highlighted this at Agritechnica 2011 with a display that allowed attendees to put their fingerprint on a Valtra. More on that here.
To make the tractors even more personalized for farmer’s needs, the Valtra Unlimited customized studio at its factory in Finland. The studio can add on any accessories and equipment that are not available directly from the production line during the normal manufacturing process.
The company says it’ll outfit the tractors with anything the customer’s order as well the machine complies with transportation and traffic regulations. Some cosmetic examples are gold exterior paint or special leather for the operator’s seat. Mechanical examples include auxiliary hydraulics, reversing cameras, central lubrication systems, flashing lights, or an alcohol lock. That’s right, an ignition interlock or integrated breathalyzer for the tractor (which the company says is required by laws for operators doi road maintenance applications in some cities.)
All Unlimited tractors come with special-edition Unlimited floor mats, seat covers, steering wheel logo and decal. The Unlimited tractors are available across Europe. You can learn more here: www.valtra.com/unlimited.
