Antonio Carraro TGF 10900 R
Low centre of gravity orchard tractor With its 98 hp Kubota engine, the TGF is a steering mono-directional tractor with large rear wheels and a low center of gravity, the lowest and most compact tractor in the 100 hp class. It is a tractor specifically designed for work in orchards and vineyards, perfect for both low- and high-trained vines, for working under tree canopies, in greenhouses, in “Y” shaped orchards and on slopes. It is characterized by its extremely compact dimensions and tight turning circle, thanks to the smaller front wheels that reduce the turning radius and enable precision maneuvers. The hood height is the lowest in its class (112.5 cm), as is the driving position, with an overall height of just 174 cm with the low-profile Protector 100 cab. Although extremely compact, the TGF offers the same level of operator space and comfort as a conventional tractor, with the central tunnel free of levers to facilitate access, and the reverse shuttle control located to the right of the operator. The transmission features a synchronized 16 + 16 gearbox with synchronized shuttle (optional E-drive). There is a choice of eight different tire combinations to meet all operating requirements and for different types of terrain. The optional Protector 100 cab has a streamlined profile to prevent entanglement and damage to foliage. Two versions are available: the basic Category 1 pressurized cab and the Category 4 certified version, providing total protection against the ingress of dust, gas and aerosols. The R Series represents the top of the AC range for performance, technological content and on-board equipment, offering a host of useful functions as standard. Thanks to CAN-bus technology, which allows instantaneous dialogue between the tractor's various electronic control units with a minimum number of connections, the operator can enjoy the benefits of electronic engine control, with all the controls conveniently located on the instrument panel, including the work speed memories and acceleration ramps. All the models are equipped with the formidable 98 hp, 4-cylinder Kubota engine with electronic Common Rail injection. The slightly longer wheelbase ensures optimal distribution of the tractor's weight. All the models in the range can be equipped on request with the new Air cab (except for the TGF 10900 R, which is fitted with the Protector 100 cab) affording advanced technology and comfort, with a spacious operator position, notwithstanding the extremely compact dimensions which allow easy maneuvering in tight spaces and between crops. The cab is pressurized and available also in a Category 4 certified version, which offers the operator total protection from inhalation of harmful dust, gas and vapors.
