The new electronically-operated Stage IIIB engines comply with the strictest European standards as for emission control: a supremacy among isodiametric tractors translating into lower consumption, less toxic emissions and higher operating comfort.
Innovative technical content, elegant design and reduced overall dimensions make Vega K105 and L80 indispensable machines for future agriculture.
Vega K105 tractors come with a 3.8 lt Kubota engine which develops 98 HP. Devices such as the Exhaust Gas Recirculation system, the Diesel Oxidation Catalyst and the Diesel Particulate Filter dramatically reduce toxic substances emitted into the environment.
Vega L80 tractors have a 2.4 lt Kohler engine which develops 75 HP. Turbocharged by a Turbo Intercooler, it is equipped with an EGR system alongside a DOC catalyst to reduce emissions and enhance operational efficiency.
Both latest generation Common Rail engines ensure a precise injection control, a more efficient combustion, improved performance and less fuel consumption.
The electronically-managed engine keeps engine speed steady and thus the vehicle speed, the PTO rotation speed and the hydraulic flow, with following fuel saving and improvement of the work efficiency.
The engine speed electronic management, developed in-house by BCS Group, is fast and precise through a control panel located at the right of the steering wheel.

Engine and clutch are reciprocally connected by a single shaft transmitting movement both to the gearbox main clutch and the PTO clutch, obtaining compact dimensions and larger steering angles.
A joint in the middle of the tractor give more stability on slopes and all soil conditions, keeping the highest traction on all four wheels.
The synchronised gearbox is formed by 4 ranges and 4 speeds, for a total of 16 ratios both in forward and reverse, with synchronised reverser.
The logic sequence of speeds (from 700 m/h to 40 km/h) allows the selection of the best gear for the required use, with following fuel saving, reduced stress on mechanical components and a better quality of the work.
Long life clutch
The new electronically-managed multiple-disc clutch in oil bath is smoother to engage and more performing vs the standard dry clutches, so that the operator can control the tractor always with more precision.
The use of this evolved hydraulic clutch inside the transmission generates a series of concrete advantages: longer life, no maintenance and top manoeuvrability thanks to the more compact dimensions of the tractor.
The clutch engaging pedal comes with the Pro-Act System for a more comfortable and ergonomic movement of the foot on the pedal. The operator is more sensitive to modulation.
Transmission can be equipped with the electronically-operated reverser, with EasyDrive® electronic handling. The comfortable lever on the left of the steering wheel allows the operator to reverse the driving direction without lifting the hands from the steering wheel and without using the clutch pedal, while keeping the vehicle control at all times.
For the best feeling between you and your tractor, you can modify the system reactiveness in 5 different levels, depending on the different working needs
An electronic control unit, fully developed and produced by the BCS Group, can calculate in real time parameters such as sloping, acceleration and load.
When the reverser is operated, the control unit decreases the machine speed by means of the service brakes, depending on the speed and the engaged ratio, and automatically engages the reverse gear, releasing the clutch progressively. This reduces manoeuvring times and increases operating safety.
The EasyDrive® electrohydraulically-operated reverser is especially handy and easy to use for all those works requiring many direction changes, such as greenery maintenance, material handling with fork lift, snow moving works or for movements at the headland in vineyards and orchards.
Vega K105 and L80 tractors have a matchless manoeuvring capacity, thanks to their short wheelbase and their compact dimensions.
The steering wheel is power assisted, through a dedicated hydraulic system. The manoeuvres are precise and the turning radiuses are very small both in models with steering wheels and in those with central joint, and especially in Dualsteer® versions.
Dualsteer® is internationally patented and is unique on the market: it is a double steering system joining the central joint of the frame to the steering of front wheels, the steering angle can reach 70°.
The hydraulic system has two circuits with independent pumps and heat exchanger for oil cooling.
The oversized flow rate of pumps allows all modern implements for specialised agriculture to be coupled.
The new electronically-operated joystick allows to control the hydraulic system and the lifts at the same time through a single device; in this way, all operations involving the tractor hydraulic system can be performed safely and easily.
A potentiometer integrated in the armrest can be used to adjust the system sensitiveness.
Pto and lifts
The rear PTO, with multiple-disc clutch in oil bath is independent from the transmission and is synchronised with all progress speeds.
The sturdy rear lift has a lifting capacity of 2300 kg; for SDT differentiated wheels versions it’s 2700 kg.
A performing front lift is available as an optional, indispensable for using multipurpose implements.
Active and passive
The use in full safety both slopes and crosswise is guaranteed by the design geometry of Vega K105 and L80 tractors, having a low centre of gravity and a very good weight distribution on axles when the implement is coupled to the rear lift.
The differential lock is electrohydraulically operated, so that the tractor is always under traction.
Four disc brakes in oil bath intervene simultaneously and continuously on all four wheels, even when the front drive is released, as they are supported by a hydrostatic control acting as braking divider.
The independent Brake-off parking brake is exclusive to Vega range: it automatically engages when the engine is switched off.
The driving platform is hanging on silent-blocks to dampen vibrations and noise to the advantage of operating comfort.
The controls are ergonomically located and easy to be operated; when seated, the operator has a complete, unobstructed view on the machine and on the implement.
The multipurpose function of Vega K105 and L80 tractors is enhanced by the reversibility of the driving seat (not available in SDT differentiated wheels versions).
Just in a few seconds the operator can rotate the driving platform by 180° (seat, steering wheel, dashboard and pedals), to work with a front-mounted implement and steadily supervising all working operations.
The Comfort cabs were designed with streamlined contour to protect the vegetation the tractor is working in and also to ensure good comfort inside the compartment.
The cabs come with A/C system and heating, have large glassy windows and wide sunroof, so that the driver can supervise all operations in the best way also when the driving platform is in reverse position.
For SDT differentiated wheels versions the new AIRTECH Compact cabs are available, pressurised and approved for Category 4, insulating operators from toxic inhalation during phytosanitary treatments, for a healthy and safe working environment.
The low-profile single-body frame makes the use under the foliage, in pergola vineyards and greenhouses extremely easy.
Vega K105 and L80 tractor feature an aggressive look, at the same time elegant and functional, with a muscular line that guarantees at the same time the best visibility for the operator.
In addition to the four front light clusters on front fenders, two LED beams above the hood grill increase the lighted area favouring over-night work or in case of poor visibility.
All under control
The new, automotive-inspired dashboard is a concentrate of digital technology.
In addition to the electrohydraulic controls located in a logic and ergonomic way, the multifunction colour display keeps each parameter under control at all times. The quick and immediate reading of the values is possible thanks to the analogue gauges with dials.
The Dualsteer® is a patented double steering system that combines the central articulation of the frame with the steering of the front wheels: this allows to realize a real steering angle equal to approximately 70°.
From the operational point of view the driver only needs to operate the steering wheel because the control of the engagement proportionality of the two devices, which act simultaneously, is guaranteed by a hydraulic circuit and by a specific system of mechanical connection of synchronization. The hydraulic circuit acts both on the steering cylinders of the central articulation and on the steering cylinders of the front wheels while the connection system guarantees the synchrony and the progressiveness of the steering.
The additional hydraulic cylinder on the central steering increases both the power steering with high accuracy at very low speeds also in presence of high load on the axles, both the direction and stability on road transfer at high speeds.
