The P796V tractor around which Locostra is built is a 79hp, approximately 60kW, four wheel tractor. It is produced by Pierre Trattori, a small family driven company producing only one type of tractor.
Apart from off the shelf components the tractor is entirely produced in the company workshop, where no numerically controlled machines are used, but only manual lathe, drilling machines and welding tools are available. Therefore, the tractor can be maintained in every not specialized workshop everywhere in the world.
The engine is a commercial off the shelf diesel engine produced by DEUTZ, TD2011L04 type. It is a direct injection engine with 4 cylinders, a cubic capacity of 3110cm3, 2600rpm maximum rated speed, 250Nm maximum torque at 1600rpm rotational speed and oil cooled with independent radiator.
The frame is entirely made of steel. Standard profiles are cut, drilled, worked and welded using previously prepared templates. The frame has a central articulation allowing the radius of curvature to reach 2.15m when the double steering system is used (both on the articulation and on the front wheels).
The tractor is fully hydraulically actuated, having a hydrostatic transmission system and hydro static steering system connected to the steering shaft. Forward, backward motion and speed are controlled via a joystick connected to the hydraulic transmission system.
Therefore speed is continuously regulated from 0 to 30km/h.
The 3 point linkage system is standard category 1. It is hydraulically actuated and can lift up to 2000kg. The p.t.o. rotates at 540rpm. The tractor can pull a maximum load of 4000kg.
The tractor weights 2000kg without the cabin and 2160kg with cabin. It is 1615mm wide, 2957mm long and 1240mm height without the cabin.
