IN celebration of Valtra's 60th anniversary, the firm has introduced their vision of what an agricultural tractor or power unit might look and work like in the future.
The ANTS concept is a play on words in that A, N, T and S are all current series of Valtra tractors. But also, the futuristic ANTS machines are loosely modelled on the little bugs in both appearance and function.
Valtra's ANTS consists of two modules, a soldier unit with an output of 100kW and a worker unit with an output of 200kW. These units can be combined, creating an ANTS queen with three axles, eight wheels and an output of up to 400 kW. If needed, a cab or implements can be attached at any position to either one of the ANTS modules along their spinal core.
