    Engine

    The Versatile MFWD tractors are powered by the Cummins QSL9 that features the latest in diesel engine technology. Cummins is the exclusive engine supplier across the entire range of Versatile tractors. Engineers from both companies worked together to ensure seamless integration of the engine with the transmission and electronics.

    QSL9 - The Cummins QSL9 is a market leader in horsepower and torque. This turbocharged engine, with electronic controlled high-pressure common-rail injection, offers smooth power delivery and fast engine response with less vibration. In addition this model is excellent for cold starting ability with an integral air inlet heater.

    VGT/Multiple High Pressure Fuel Injections - The QSL9 combines productivity and power with fuel efficiency. Using Cummins advanced in-cylinder technology, the QSL9 maintains performance, dependability and durability while operating cleanly and efficiently. Advanced electronics enhance engine performance, with better torque and faster throttle response. The Cummins QSL9 is known for its cold start ability and smooth operation, including less engine noise and vibration which means less operator fatigue.

    Transmission

    Upshifting and downshifting is as easy as the push of a button. Models are equipped with a 16 x 9 full powershift transmission that has been refined for smooth shifting, particularly when under load. An innovative design that features large helical cut case-hardened gears on roller bearings ensures the operation is durable, smooth and quiet.

    Hydraulics

    Modern implements require more flow from the hydraulic system, constant speed from the power take-off and load bearing capacity at the drawbar. The Versatile 260, 290 and 310 have been designed to handle these rigorous demands.

    Electro-hydraulics - are standard and are ergonomically designed for both comfort and convenience. Finger-tip controls manage the hydraulic functions and hydraulic flow is increased and decreased using the EHR monitor. The Versatile 260 to 310 have a total hydraulic flow of 208 L/min (55 GPM), or 284 L/min (75 GPM) with the optional Hi-Flow hydraulic system. Four remote valves are standard and six remote valves are optional.

    Hitch/Axle

    3-Point Hitch - A Category III/IIIN 3-point hitch comes standard on Versatile models 260 to 310 with a lift capacity of 8550 kg (18,850 lb).

    PTO - The fully-independent PTO features multi-plate, bronze friction clutches for smooth, shock free implement starting. The 260 comes standard with 540/1000 dual speed PTO. The 290 and 310 come with the 1000 RPM PTO as standard equipment and the 540/1000 as optional.

    Hitch and Drawbar - The drawbar is equipped with an auto hitch pin that will automatically drop in place when hitching up implements. When backing up the tractor to attach an implement, the implement hitch will contact the release strap and the pin then drops automatically into place, without the operator having to leave the cab, or without the need of a second operator. Three-point hitch with draft load sensing maintains a consistent implement depth that is ideal for hard working applications such as tillage.

    The Versatile MFWD tractors come standard with a 1-1/2" (38 mm) drawbar clevis. An optional 2" (51 mm) clevis is also available. A heavy-duty drawbar is available on all models.

    Frame and Axle - The Versatile 260, 290 and 310 are designed to be durable and reliable. The frame and hood have been sculpted to improve turning radius and allow for larger tires and more configurations. The improved turning radius is most evident during end of row functions.

    All models feature a limited-slip differential that automatically increases traction in various ground conditions. When even more traction is required an optional locking differential is available that delivers full power equally to both wheels.

    Efficient speed reduction from the transmission to the ground is achieved utilizing a heavy-duty inboard planetary axle driven by a large crown and pinion gear set. The heavy-duty cast iron rear axle housing protects components for years of trouble free operation.

    HQ Cab

    Versatile MFWD tractors take advantage of the class-leading Versatile HQ Cab. With over 6.83 sq. m (73 sq. ft.) of viewable window glass the HQ Cab provides a panoramic view of your fields. A seat mounted right-hand console gives you fingertip control over the entire tractor to help reduce operator fatigue. A semi-active air-ride suspension seat is standard and the HQ Cab also offers a large training seat.

    Deluxe Cab - The new Deluxe Cab is a high-end full-featured cab that provides the operator with every imaginable comfort for long working days. A semi-active air-ride suspension seat and the training seat are both standard in this configuration. In addition to the connectivity options available in the standard cab, the Deluxe Cab has an 110v AC power outlet and a 5-volt integrated USB port.

    Cab Environment - Large multi-directional vents optimize comfort and help create an ideal cab environment. Climate control reduces window fogging and the pressurized cab prevents the accumulation of dust and dirt particles. Convenience features include four cup holders and coat hooks to keep the cab clean and organized.

    Operator Seat - The operator seat has a 27° swivel range to maximize visibility when towing implements. Air-ride suspension and a heated leather seat are standard in the Deluxe Cab.

    Training Seat - Turn the training seat into a workstation by folding down the backrest to reveal a surface ideal for a laptop computer. The Deluxe cab features an 110v AC power outlet to ensure that your work is never interrupted by a loss of battery power.

    Radio - A conveniently located stereo and high quality sound system help make long days in the cab more enjoyable. Satellite radio is available.

    Visibility - The one-piece hood improves forward visibility by 35% over previous generations. The hood slope provides the tractor with a modern look and improves the view for the operator. A single latch opens the tethered hood for access to the engine and cooling areas.

    Service

    There are never enough hours in the day and every minute counts. That’s why all Versatile tractors are designed with easy serviceability in mind. Routine service can extend the life of your tractor, minimize downtime and lower your operating costs.

    Versatile factory trained dealer service technicians are up to date with the latest repair technology. Efficient troubleshooting by trained professionals provides timely service support that minimizes your downtime.

    The oil filter is easily accessible on the right side of the engine. The filter is vertically mounted and is a spin-on type for quick, clean service.

    The large, standard fuel tanks hold a total of 170 gallons (644 L) of fuel. This large fuel capacity provides long hours of hard working performance between refueling. Both tanks fill from one location just in front of the cab on the left side of the tractor. The big, dual-element air filter is mounted above the engine and is easy to reach. An aspirated pre-cleaner in front of the air-cleaner housing extends service intervals of the filter in even the dirtiest conditions.
