New cab, controls and connectivity for second-generation Steyr® Terrus CVT

  • Three-model flagship STEYR® range is redesigned throughout
  • Major revisions include new cab
  • Two new specification packages
  • All-new interior with new Multicontroller III armrest, configurable controls, Infomat 1200 monitor, tablet instrumentation
  • Full S-Fleet wireless connectivity package allows instant data transfer and remote monitoring

With a fresh cab design, revised styling, re-thought controls and advanced connectivity technology, there is now a new generation of Terrus CVT tractors topping the STEYR line.

The launch of the new 250-300hp range marks the brand’s continued push to offer models with the highest levels of quality, comfort and technology, to make the job of farming easier, more efficient and more productive.

As with the previous range, introduced in 2015, the Terrus CVT line – built at the St. Valentin plant in Austria – comprises three models (250/270/300hp nominal/rated power), all driving through the STEYR CVT transmission. However, beyond this, many of the tractors’ features are unique to the new- generation Terrus CVT. This includes the new cab with completely revised interior, including a new Multicontroller III armrest, configurable controls, Infomat 1200 touchscreen monitor, tablet engine/transmission instrumentation and – for the first time – STEYR S-Fleet telematics with instant- two-way data transfer.

Looks and style are important elements of modern tractors, and externally the new Terrus CVT shows the influence of STEYR’s ‘avantgarde’ design philosophy, to create a premium on-board experience for a premium tractor. Those looks are matched by features that are equally cutting-edge, focused around operator experience, handling, implement control and precision farming, all connected and customisable to different applications and preferences.

When you climb into the new entrance area  into the cab, operators  will  find a  key  feature  is  the  all-new Multicontroller III armrest. This incorporates a redesigned multi-function Multicontroller lever, customizable controls including remote valve paddles with LED colour indication – allowing operators to set up their Terrus CVT according to preference – and the new ISOBUS-compatible Infomat 1200 touchscreen monitor. The high-resolution Infomat 1200 provides an overview of all tractor functions, and allows operation and optimisation of the hydraulics, PTO, engine and transmission using either the touchscreen, new encoder turn-and-press dial or short-cut keys. In addition, it can show camera feeds, to monitor implements at the rear or the front view from road junctions, for example.

Infomat 1200 not only incorporates next-generation S-Guide guidance management, but also new S- Fleet telematics capabilities, eliminating any need for manual/USB data recording/transfer.

Tractor and implement operating data are recorded instantly and automatically, and are accessible on the farm PC via the web portal, or the S-Fleet mobile app on the manager/owner’s smart device. It’s also possible to see machine location and monitor performance indicators, allowing observation of when fuel supplies may be needed, for example. Two-way data transfer means data and instructions such as field maps can also be sent to the tractor from a smart device or PC.

“Since 2015, the Terrus CVT has been a huge success for us in the 250-300hp sector,” says Peter Friis, STEYR Head of Commercial Operations in Europe.

“Now we have a new range that takes us even further forward in technology, capacity and capability.”
