Orion V8.80 | V8.95 MT
Isodiametric tractors, reversible, with steering wheels configured in haymaking version. 73 or 91 HP
The Orion V8.80 and V8.95 MT are tractors with steering wheels made in the version for mowing fodder, especially in sloping areas.
The structure is characterized by a low centre of gravity for maximum stability on slopes without sacrificing the ground clearance for a rational flow of the mowed fodder under the machine.
To help heat disposal, the cooling system is supported by the Self Cleaning System
which allows the engine and hydraulic system to always operate within the maximum safety margin.
The Dual Floating System
optimizes the load on the ground of the equipment applied to the third point, promoting its 'floating'.
Particular attention has been paid to the driver’s comfort: 6 post rops and approved cabins make for a practical and comfortable driving experience.
Two VM engines are available for the Orion: a 73 HP four cylinder engine (Orion V8.80) and a 91 hp four cylinder engine (Orion V8.95), both with counter-rotating mass and EGR System.
The decision to use a lower number of rpms, 2,300 rpm/min was conceived to reduce consumption, noise level and vibrations, with the benefit of comfort.
The EGR System located inside the engine allows to reduce the emissions of nitrogen oxides and fuel consumption.

Transmission and gearbox
The Orion are provided with OS-Frame transmissions: a unique transmission shaft moves both the gearbox main clutch and the PTO independent clutch, while assuring the best mechanical output.
The joint in the middle of the machine lets the front axle oscillate up to 15° with respect to the rear axle, for excellent stability on slopes, as the four wheels are always stuck on the ground.
The 32-speed synchronised gearbox (16 FWD + 16 REV) with synchronized reverser always allows right gear selection for the tasks for which the tractor is intended to.
The 'Long Life' clutch is multidisc in oil bath with a proportional hydraulic control and Pro-Act System for maximum performance and comfort.
The Orion are equipped with planetary gear axles to minimize wheelbase of the tractor and increase its manoeuvrability.
The 4-wheel drive has got an electro-hydraulically controlled disengagement of the front one.
Pto and hydraulic system
The rear PTO is independent from the gearbox and synchronized with all progress speeds. PTO can be engaged by an electro-hydraulic control, it has a speed of 540/1000 rpm. The clutch is multidisc in oil bath.
The solid rear hydraulic lift with accumulator for weight compensation HDR relies on multi-purpose practical and versatile couplings to adapt quickly and easily to all marketed equipments.
As optional, it is also available a hydraulically controlled upper link and tie rod which allows adjusting the attachments from the driver’s position, and a performing front lift which is necessary when using combined attachments.
The hydraulic system consists of a double circuit with two independent pumps and dedicated heat exchanger: the hydroguide pump has a flow rate of 28,5 l/min, like the one for the lift and distributors.
A joy stick with electronic control (optional), is used to control both the hydraulic system and the rear lift with a single device.
Active and passive safety
The braking system, with 4 multiple disc wet brakes, is assisted by an hydrostatic control acting as braking distributor which intervenes constantly and simultaneously on the 4 wheels when acting on the pedal.
Exclusive to the Orion is the independent Brake-off parking brake that is automatically inserted when the engine is off. When the unit is operating, on the other hand, it is controlled with a practical button on the dashboard.
The electro-hydraulically controlled front and rear differential lock, simultaneously or rear only, assures the best traction on any type of grounds.
6 post rops and the safety belts on the seat protect the operator.
The driving position with platform mounted on silent block is custom-fitted on the driver with ergonomic controls placed to be easily found and activated by the operator.
From the seat the operator enjoys a complete view both on the machine and on the attachments.
The digital display guarantees the total control of the unit.
The hydrostatic steering ensures maximum maneuverability and low turning radii.
The Orion are equipped with standard reversible driving position: a few seconds are required to rotate by 180° the seat, the steering wheel, the console and brakes-clutch pedals so that the operator may work having the equipment in front of him and constantly be able to control the operations. This means: maximum security and comfort.
Available in Lusso and Comfort versions with air conditioning, the Orion cabs have been designed with the greatest care to even the smallest details to guarantee the inside comfort and not to damage the environment in which they operate.
The structure is mounted on silent block suspended platform completely independent from the chassis of the tractor in order to reduce noise and vibrations.
The large glass doors improve the driver's view when operating in both traditional and reverse driving position.
