Farm Equipment Review: November 2005

Enhancements on options
The new GT series of AGCO tractors are EPA Certified Tier II emissions compliant
and are now available with multiple tire and enhanced three-point hitch options.
The GT45A and GT55A are powered by three cylinder, three litre diesel engines.
The GT45A is rated at 44 PTO horsepower and the GT55A is rated at 56 PTO horsepower.
The GT65A and GT75A are powered by four cylinder, four litre diesel engines
and produce 62 and 74 PTO horsepower, respectively. All four are equipped with
16F/8R synchro shuttle transmissions, especially well suited for loader and
blading work where repetitive direction changes are needed.
The tire options now include the R1 ag tire, R3 turf tire and R4 industrial
tire. Dealers can order the new GT with the preferred tires factory installed.
Also factory installed is the new extendable lower link on the three-point hitch.
The link option gives operators even more versatility when working with rear
mounted attachments and implements. All four GT models are available in two
wheel drive and mechanical front wheel drive (MFWD) as well as platform or cab
configurations. With a turning radius of only 10 feet for two wheel drive models
and 12 feet for MFWD models, the series is especially well suited to use in
limited access areas. -30-
