The new ACTIO chassis, reinforced and strengthened, gives the machine more weight, increasing its working stability on hilly or mountainous terrain and among specialised crops where the machine gives its best results, moving with agility between the rows.
The new tow hitch allows better access to the PTO. The new PTO is independent with a mechanical control, at 540/540E rpm. The geometrical structure of the lifting system is new, increasing the lifting capacity by about 100 kg in comparison with the basic model.
The new lift with controlled force improves the use of the tools, as it is jointly managed by force and position. The Tigrone 5500 Jona offers top-level operating comfort thanks to a wider driver position.
The tractor has a reliable 48 hp 4-stroke diesel engine, ecological and very silent-running, compliant with the Stage 3A standard. The Tigrone 5500 Jona also has a new synchronised gearbox with 12 forward +12 reverse speeds, with inverter.
Antonio Carraro tractors have been sold in Australia for over 35 years with the first machines being brought over in the mid '70s.
Today, Antonio Carraro produce a range of specialised machines suited to working with ease in environments which would normally cause problems for traditional tractors. Tight spaces, steep slopes and low clearances are their specialty and with features such as ACTIOTM and REVguideTM they are uniquely suited to working in less than optimal conditions with ease and relative safety.
The modern facilities at the Antonio Carraro factory are state of the art with a fast, efficient production line and manufacturing principles learned from Porsche headquarters in Stuttgart including Kai Zen, which means constant improvement.
Our staff and dealer network have factory training and we have a huge inventory of spare parts in stock to back up every machine we sell.
