The Tony 9800 TR (87hp- Yanmar engine – 4 turbo cylinders) is the latest of AC’s “Grand” reversible tractors with a hydrostatic-mechanical transmission. A new concept transmission with continual variation, 4 robotised speed ranges with electronic controls, that noticeably increases the transmission’s capabilities, by increasing traction capacity by 30% compared with the standard model. The Tony 9800 TR also offers electronic automatic control of forward speed movement and engine revolutions thanks to the ESC control system – Electronic Speed Control. It also has a large hydraulic capacity that amplifies the range of equipment it can be used with. The gearbox range, servo assisted and engaged via a switch (on the dashboard or the joystick) or automatically, does not result in discontinuous movement. The simple or electronic draft position and control lift is fitted with suspension and a joystick with adjustable oil flow. The electronic system is aided by an analogical/digital instrument that supplies all information regarding the tractor’s functions.
The central tunnel of the driver’s seat is completely free of impediments, just as the command centre joystick offers maximum ergonomics and operational comfort. The StarLight cab (FOPS certification and Category 4 protection from harmful substances), offers a large, soundproofed living space, with all round visibility. The cab is fitted with doors and spherically curved windscreens on butterfly windows, with a window by the power lift and skylight for excellent visibility above.
All the pedals are suspended on the reversible drive tower, in an ergonomic position, so that the cab’s living area is completely isolated from the outside without any risk of air infiltration from the drive platform.
