Steyr Introduces New Multi Tractor
A unique level of comfort.
The new Multi was developed in cooperation with farmers and was manufactured in the Austrian town of St. Valentin. It embodies true multi-functional capabilities and an outstanding level of comfort, quite simply unique in this category of vehicle. Particular highlights are the new automated transmission with its Multicontroller armrest and integrated joystick for the front loader, which is exceptionally easy to operate and delivers enormous benefits in terms of comfort and safety when working with the front loader. The armrest can be folded up to enable the driver to leave the vehicle easily from the right-hand side. The controllers for powershift points and the three-stage switch for shuttle performance levels are located on the armrest, between the Multicontroller and the front loader joystick. A new design of front axle suspension makes transport operations very comfortable indeed for the driver.
Steyr ECOTRONIK for even greater efficiency.
The Steyr ECOTRONIK achieves a perfect symbiosis of engine, transmission and vehicle operation. Other highlights include the new automatic transmission and reliable engines, delivering robust torque, optimum fuel economy and power ratings of up to 120 hp, as well as exceptional pump performance levels, making this tractor a great all-rounder. The oil service interval is 600 hours. The transmission has four main gear ratios and four powershift groups which engage automatically in transport mode. Gear matching of these powershift stages is performed automatically in each mode. With ECOTRONIK the shift points in the automatic powershift transmission can be adjusted to take place at shaft speeds of between 1000 and 2000 rpm. In Power mode, employed for heavy-duty work, the automatic transmission performs upshifts later and downshifts sooner than in Eco mode. Conversely, for light-duty work, Eco mode does exactly the opposite. There is also middle ground, in that the shift points can be adapted to suit whatever the job in hand might be, at any given time. Thanks to ECOTRONIK, the Multi lives up to its name – as a multi-talented performer on livestock and mixed arable farms.
Versatile and manoeuvrable.
The Multi guarantees uninterrupted work in Shuttle mode and constant speeds when working in fields. It is also ideally suited for front loader operation, with the loader joystick with transmission functions situated ergonomically on the armrest. The four PTO shaft modes have been adapted to suit the engine characteristics curves. PTO shaft speeds of 540 and 1,000 rpm are reached at engine speeds of between 1800 and 1900 rpm to utilise maximum engine power. However, in Eco mode the PTO shaft speeds delivering maximum torque are situated in a more fuel-efficient range, at engine speeds of between 1500 and 1600 rpm. The PTO shaft can be operated clockwise or anti-clockwise in stationary mode.
When it comes to the hydraulics, customers can choose between the axial piston hydraulic pump (CCLS) with a displacement of 80 l/min and up to 5 mechanical control units, and the axial piston hydraulic pump (CCLS) with a displacement of up to 100 l/min as well as 2 mechanical and up to 4 electronic control units. There is also the option of having a front hitch with electronic control (EFH); the great benefit of the EFH is the electronic strain relief on front-mounted attachments that it provides. The driver is able to set the contact pressure for those front-mounted attachments and the EFH employs a pressure sensor to adapt the contact pressure of front-mounted attachments to the prevailing terrain. This enhances the quality of work and safety on steep gradients because pressure is maintained on the front axle at all times.
Yet another extraordinary feature is the turning circle of this tractor – only 4.05 metres! The maximum permitted GVW has been increased to 8 tons and the new Multi is also more comfortable and performs better with its new front axle suspension. It is now possible to fit 28-inch tyres on the front wheels. The cab is also available with suspension – the height of the tractor remains the same regardless of the level of suspension action. All models can be ordered ‘monitor-ready’, which means they can be equipped with ISOBUS II. Easy to maintain and highly versatile, the new Multi is the first choice of all farmers wishing to enjoy the excellence of STEYR quality standards in a compact format.
