History of Versatile Tractors
The Versatile brand is one of the four largest global manufacturers of high-performance tractors. Since the start of the production of the first
tractor (1966), more than 50,000 units of energy-intensive equipment have been supplied under this brand. Today Versatile is a division of Buhler Industries Inc. the Canadian part of the Rostselmash holding. The product line of tractors under the Versatile trademark consists of three series: Genesis series (196-278 hp), 2000 series (335-375 hp), HHT series (435-535 hp). ). Buhler Versatile Inc is part of the corporation, which includes several North American enterprises for the production of agricultural machinery Farm King, Allied, Inland. More than 800 people work at the company's production facilities. Since October 2007, 80% of the shares of Buhler Industries Inc have been acquired by Rostselmash. Rostselmash actively promotes Versatile equipment through its own dealer network. Versatile tractors are supplied to North America, Australia, New Zealand, CIS countries and Europe.
Versatile 2375 tractor - a
The Versatile 2375 tractor with a 4 × 4 wheel arrangement belongs to the fifth traction class, designed to work on large areas. High power and the ability to install paired wheels allows you to work with almost any wide-cutting implement using zero, minimum or classic farming technology.
The articulated frame offers a number of advantages such as tight turning radius, track-to-track movement, etc. The two semi-frames are capable of vertical deflection by 42 degrees relative to each other, which provides increased cross-country ability. Despite the vehicle's dimensions - 3.5 meters in width and 6.75 meters in length - the turning radius on standard wheels is 4.86 meters, and on twin wheels - about 7 meters.
The machine is equipped with a 6-cylinder Cummins QSM11 turbocharged diesel engine. Maximum power 375 hp achieved at 2100 rpm. The engine is adapted operating conditions and has an increased service life; works in tandem with a manual or automatic transmission.
The mechanical Quadshift transmission has 3 speed ranges with 4 synchronized gears each - a total of 12 forward gears and 4 reverse gears. Gear ratios are selected to provide maximum traction at operating speeds. The automatic Powershift transmission has 12 forward and 2 reverse gears and can optionally be supplemented with an electronic clutch valve.
Reinforced final drives with planetary gears are installed in the tractor axles, which transmit all possible power to the drawbar. The planetary hubs are attached directly to the axle beam through a heavy-duty, large diameter bearing. As a result, the entire load is not transferred to the drive components, but to the axle beam. As an option, if the machine is supposed to work in particularly difficult conditions, you can order the installation of a differential lock for the front and rear axles, which will significantly increase the machine's cross-country ability.
The HydraFlow hydraulic system, thanks to load sensors, automatically regulates and maintains the required pressure level in the system for the most efficient operation of the attachment. When there is no load, the system goes into low pressure economical mode, creating a reserve for transferring all power to the drawbar. The maximum pressure in the system is 200 bar, and the pump capacity is 170 l / min.
Comfort and efficiency
For the smooth operation of the machine, it requires regular maintenance. And in this regard, the designers of Versatile 2375 have something to be proud of - they have provided everything to make maintenance of the tractor simple and convenient, which was appreciated by the operators. All lubrication and inspection points are easily accessible, and sight glasses allow you to quickly check the level of all working fluids.
Comfortable working conditions for the operator are not only a guarantee of his health, but also increase work efficiency. Ergonomics of the workplace is well thought out and meets all modern requirements. Therefore, working with such a machine becomes simple, comfortable and efficient.
