Mars V8.80 | V8.95 RS
Isodiametric tractors, monodirectional or reversible, with steering wheels. 73 or 91 HP
The Mars V8.80 and V8.95 RS are multi-purpose specialized tractors, particularly performing in vineyards, orchards, nurseries cultivations and greens maintenance.
The low centre of gravity, the all-wheel drive and the rigid frame with front-wheel steering provide outstanding stability and unmatched road grip, allowing Mars V8.80 and V8.95 RS to work in complete safety both on flat and uneven, sloping grounds.
The reversible driving position (available as optional) allows to operate practically and rationally both with towed and front attachments.
Two VM engines are available for the Mars: a 73 HP four cylinder engine (Mars V8.80) and a 91 hp four cylinder engine (MarsV8.95), 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 transmission of Mars is fitted with the OS-FRAME chassis.
The structure with cantilevered engine allows for a very low centre of gravity without sacrificing ground clearance.
A 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.
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 and requires no maintenance.
The Thor are equipped with planetary gear axles to minimize wheelbase of the tractor and increase its manoeuvrability.
The permanent 4-wheel drive allows exploiting the machine’s towing feature.
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 540/540E rpm or, as optional, 540/1000 rpm.
The clutch is multidisc in oil bath.
The solid rear hydraulic lift by rams (optional with position and draft control) relies on multi-purpose practical and versatile couplings to adapt quickly and easily to all marketed equipments.
As optional, it is also available 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. As optional a 49 l/min oversize pump is available.
Active and passive safety
The braking system with multi disc wet brakes, act on the rear transmission.
Front and rear differential lock, electro-hydraulically controlled, allows the tractor to be always in traction.
The roll-bar and the safety belts on the seat protect the operator.
The driving position 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.
In the reversible version, a few seconds are required to rotate by 180° the seat, the steering wheel and the console so that the operator may work having the equipment in front of him and constantly be able to control the operations.
