Valtra T-Series HiTech models Operators manual

This operator's manual is for the Valtra T Series HiTech tractors. The T Series HiTech models are T144 H, T154 H, T174e H, T194 H, T214 H and T234 H. The manual is meant for agricultural tractors only. If the tractor is used for other applications, it is the owner's responsibility to ensure compliance with local regulations. In this case, always contact your dealer first. The purpose of this manual is to enable the owner and operator to use the tractor in a proper manner. Providing that the instructions are followed carefully, the tractor will provide years of service in the tradition of Valtra.

The manual contains detailed instructions for operating, servicing and maintaining the tractor. Optional equipment in the manual refers to equipment that can be selected when ordering the tractor. Due to the continual development of the products, the content of this manual may not always correspond to the new product. Therefore, we retain the right to make alterations without prior notification. Maintenance, repairs and adjustments which are not described in this manual require special tools and exact technical data. For such work contact your dealer who has specially trained personnel to help you.

Repair and maintenance and Support
During repair and maintenance work, all the applicable safety precautions and maintenance instructions have to be followed. The engine has to be stopped and the implements lowered before any maintenance work. If the maintenance work requires supporting the tractor, the supports have to be suitable and the tractor has to be supported from the correct support points. When splitting the tractor, the support points and the center of gravity for each frame part have to be considered.

Heavy components
Tools and lifting devices have to be used in the correct way. Lifting slings should be in a vertical position and lifting and lowering should be vertical as often as possible.

Adjusting the driver's seat
You can adjust the driver's seat according to your height and weight. With these adjustments you can minimize the exposure to vibration, obtain the best support for your lower back and get the most comfortable driving position. You may need to change the adjustments according to work conditions or the components you are using such as the tyre type.

Adjusting the air-suspended driver's seat
You can adjust the air-suspended driver's seat according to your height and weight.With these adjustments you can minimise the exposure to vibration, obtain the best support for your lower back and get the most comfortable driving position. You may need to change the adjustments according to work conditions or the components you are using such as the tyre type. Power must be switched on while adjusting the air-suspended driver's seat, but the seat has its own compressor. The air-suspended driver's seat is extra equipment.

The control stop is used when the tractor is running an implement in stationary mode (for example a compressor or pump) and the operator is not in the cab. Using the control stop reduces the risk of more serious damage to the engine or in the transmission. The control stop is extra equipment.

Using the ignition switch
The ignition switch has four positions: OFF, ACC, power on and start position. In the ACC position, for example, the radio and cold box are powered. After turning the ignition key to OFF position, there is a delay before the main power switches off.

Fuel-operated heater
The fuel-operated heater (optional equipment) uses the same fuel as the tractor and can be used for heating the engine and the cabin. The heater heats primarily the engine and then the cabin. The heater is controlled either with the heater panel or remotely via mobile phone and push button on the dashboard.

Power shuttle
You can change the driving direction smoothly with the power shuttle lever. The engagement of the power shuttle is automatic. You can request a driving direction change with the power shuttle lever at any driving speed, but the transmission starts to engage the new driving direction only when the speed is below 10 km/h. If the driving speed is higher, the traction releases and the transmission goes into idle until the speed is low enough. The new direction arrow starts to flash to indicate that the driving direction change has been requested. The direction arrow is constantly lit when the new direction has engaged. If you return the power shuttle lever to the original direction when the driving speed is still over 10 km/h, the traction engages immediately.

The operator detector prevents the shuttle engagement if you are not on the seat. If the direction is selected, the arrow of the selected direction flashes on the display panel. The selected direction does not engage until you sit on the seat and move the power shuttle lever to the parking brake position (P) and then to the desired direction.

If the driving speed is below 5 km/h and the operator leaves the seat for more than two seconds without pressing the clutch pedal down for more than 10%, the shuttle disengages and the direction arrow flashes. The direction stays selected but does not engage until the operator sits on the seat and moves the power shuttle lever to the parking brake position (P) and then to the desired direction.
