With the number of professional farmers and agricultural collectives in Japan and across the globe steadily increasing, there is a greater demand for agricultural machinery that is highly efficient, highly functional and low cost. Considering this trend, YANMAR is addressing farmers’ needs of “comfort, control, potential and pride” with the new flagship model YT Series large-size tractor.
Under the slogan, “Creating a new agriculture,” world-renowned Ken Okuyama (also a director of YANMAR Holdings Co., Ltd.) heads the product design. The YT Series tractor utilizes the same innovative and unique “premium design” as the combine the company is releasing at the same time.
With a new “premium red” color, more striking than YANMAR’s usual red, and a body design that evokes a sense of strength, farmers can further enjoy their everyday work and take pride in the refined construction of their tractor.
Operators have access to a 330° view from inside the cabin thanks to rounded glass on all sides; no detail was forgotten, as even before customers enter the tractor, an adjustable aluminum step projects a feeling of luxury. Also focusing on ease-of-use, levers and switches used often during operation are placed above the armrest to create a new working experience. Operators can also check various machine settings and conditions in an instant on the color monitor located to their right. The company’s acclaimed continuously variable transmission has been further improved for increased functionality and efficiency, and the powerful and eco-friendly YANMAR green diesel engine has cleared Japan’s Tier 3 and EPA Final Tier 4 emissions regulations.
Advanced design and simple, yet sturdy, function come together in YANMAR’s flagship model YT Series, making this premium tractor a vital addition to every professional farmer’s lineup of machinery.
