9030 Articulated Tractor
The 9030 articulated tractor has 23 horsepower provided by a three-cylinder 1,115 cc Yanmar engine that includes direct and progressive injection to reduce fuel consumption. The way it is made makes this a very solid vehicle that can be fitted with 18-inch wheels. This gives it increased ground clearance and better driver visibility.
It is one of the few under-40 horsepower tractors fitted with synchronised gears. It drives like a car: it is not necessary to stop the vehicle to change gear. Another outstanding feature of the 9030 is the power take-off that is semi-independent of the drive system, which is extremely useful when working with mowers and similar implements.
This type of tractor is especially useful for working inside greenhouses, on vineyards and with crops where there is reduced space and, therefore, the need for a tractor with a tight turning circle. It is also useful to have an articulated model to avoid having to make complicated manoeuvres at the end of a crop line.
The 9030 articulated tractor’s robust design is especially apparent on the mechanism of the central shaft. The ball and socket joints that enable the articulation are reinforced to prevent wear and tear and guarantee a long working life for the machine.
Generally speaking, the maintenance costs of this tractor are low. Its consumables, such as filters, belts, oil reservoirs, etc. are located within reach, thereby making them easy to replace by the user rather than the tractor having to be taken to the repair shop.
Just as with the other tractors of its series, it stands out for its driving comfort, with this being due to its stability, traction and ease of using its gear levers, which are located as they would be in a car, namely to the right of the steering wheel. This is the model adapted to those who appreciated versatility and durability.
