Making a 180° turn for improved ergonomics and more productivity

For most jobs tractor operators drive their machine forward. But there are some applications where changing direction will get more out of the tractor while also improving the work posture of the driver. This is why Valtra has developed TwinTrac – a unique reverse drive system which is available on tractors from 74kW up to 272kW.

Working with Valtra TwinTrac increases productivity in a wide a range of applications: on the field, in the forest, on the farm yard or in municipal maintenance work. The operator benefits from

-          outstanding visibility and control of the implement

-          improved machine agility

-          further improved ergonomics with a reduced risk of neck strain

As a result the job gets done more accurately and quickly – the operator saves time and fuel costs!

Designed for both directions

The TwinTrac reverse drive system features additional controls in the rear of the cab, including an extra steering wheel and forward-reverse shuttle, plus accelerator, clutch and brake pedals. The driver’s seat in Valtra tractors swivels through 180 degrees so it is easy to change direction without leaving the seat.

A recent study showed that working in reverse offers significant health benefits as twisted postures of the back and neck can be reduced to a minimum.
