Newly redesigned AGCO RT Series Generation A tractors now incorporate an advanced engine design that boosts power, saves fuel and meets or exceeds the latest emission standards. The 6.6L AGCO engines are wastegate turbocharged, 24-valve power plants, which incorporate advanced, high-pressure common rail injection from Bosch. Constant injection pressures of up to 24,000 PSI allow for precision electronic control over the entire fuel system. The four-valve-per-cylinder head not only improves gas flow but also allows redesigned high-flow injectors to be centrally positioned over the combustion chamber, creating a more even fuel injection and an improved, more efficient combustion. Both the RT140A (140 hp) and RT155A (155 hp) tractor models are now equipped with the redesigned engine. The AGCO RT165A (165 hp) has the same advanced engine, but in a larger, more powerful 7.4 litre configuration. All three AGCO RTA models are equipped with the AGCO Auto-6 semi powershift transmission, which provides 24 forward and 24 reverse speeds, clutchless shifting, and an overdrive feature that offers maximum transport speeds without running the engine at full throttle.
