Valtra has good news for farmers: An old friend with a new face

A farmer’s needs are the first consideration when a Valtra factory redesigns a tractor. The aim is always to provide farmers with practical solutions for their farm. The Valtra team in Brazil has done just that with the fourth generation of BH tractors that are built on the legacy of the previous generation.

The BH140 and BH180 models were popular across the Southern Hemisphere for their good working ability, simple design and reliability.
TractorZam is now excited to announce the good news that the BH-series Valtra tractors are back in Southern Africa, with a brand-new facelift and
exciting features.

There are five new models available in the BH series that are mainly distinguished by their engine size. BH stands for Brazilian High Power while the numbers that follow, indicate the model’s horsepower. The BH154 is the smallest of the series and produces 154 horsepower or 114 kW. In addition, there is also the BH174 (129 kW), BH194 (139 kW), BH214 (147 kW) and BH224 (155 kW) available.

Beyond its beautiful, modern appearance, Valtra also made quite a few practical improvements to the BH models. Better turning ability is made possible by the shape of their weight frames. The inter-cooler is installed above the cooler, ensuring proper airflow through the radiator to cool the
engine effectively. The section below the radiators is completely sealed and
there are seals on the sides of the bonnet to prevent dust and other debris
from clogging the radiators.

The components inside the AGCO Power engine, are exactly the same as
those of the Valtra tractors imported from Finland. Farmers can therefore
rest assured that there are more than enough spare parts in stock.
This engine complies with the exhaust gas legislation for the African agricultural market and is classified as a level 3 engine. BH-series tractors have a 210-litre fuel tank, with the option to increase it to 400 litres.

The working capability of the BH series hydraulic oil pump is 170 litres
per minute, ensuring that implements relying on the tractor’s hydraulic operation always function perfectly. The hydraulic system is simple, practical, and designed to be connected easily. Its hydraulic oil is also completely independent of its gearbox oil. The hydraulic rate of this system can be controlled from the cab by turning to the rear and adjusting the leavers through the rear window.

All pumps are easily accessible under the cab, which makes servicing the tractor easier. There are three valves and a backflow valve, with the option to add more valves depending on the farmer’s needs. All three valves have
flow control. The lift and power outlet are exactly the same as that of the Finnish 3-series tractors – technology that has already been proven to
be effective.

The new models have a six-speed gearbox with larger, stronger gears.
They also have a three-speed shuttle which means they effectively have 18 gears forward and backwards. There is a forward and reverse shuttle lever
next to the steering wheel that enables the driver to change direction comfortably. The tractors have very good weight distribution and weigh about 10 tonnes each, making them perfect for dragging heavy implements.

Inside the cab are all the necessary controls that are located in easily
accessible locations around the driver. The hand throttle control is adjusted
by rotating a button. There is also an automatic, adjustable speed control.
The hydraulic levers kick back automatically when the lift arms are raised
or lowered to the desired height. The BH194h and BH224h can easily adapt
to any GPS system and can be supplied with a Top-Con system. All the electronics of the tractor are ready to fit any control system.
