All Ferrari two wheeled tractors are designed for both commercial and hobby use. An essential safety feature of all models is the Operator Presence Control (OPC, often called the "dead man control"). All Ferrari 310-360 Two Wheel Tractor models are now supplied with the Powersafe system, which meets requirements of the new EU safety directive EN709/A4.
On conventional models, when the OPC is released, the engine stop is activated. With this system, the tractor can still move forward for several feet after the OPC is released due to inertia of the engine. This also means that whenever the operator move away from the machine, the engine must be restarted on his/her return.
With the Powersafe system, the standard dry clutch is replaced by a multidisc hydraulic clutch. When the OPC is released it them releases the hydraulic clutch so the tractor and Power Take Off stop immediately whilst the engine keeps running. Stopping the forward movement is up to 10 times quicker than with conventional systems and wear on recoil and electric starters is greatly reduced. The machine is also easier to operate.
Please note all versions are now supplied without bonnet/engine cover. This is now available as an optional extra on the 320, 330 and 340 models.
The 310 is the smallest machine in the Ferrari range. It has a basic specification but is engineered to the same standards as the more sophisticated machines. It is particularly suitable for hire shops and small scale vegetable growers.
The 320 is a simple, basic machine like the 310 but has the benefit of extra gears and a larger engine. The 320 has no differential so both wheels are permanently locked together. This model is the ideal choice for users who require a well specified machine at an economical price.
The Ferrari 330 has the same transmission as the 320 but has the benefit of a differential in the axle. This means that the 2 wheels are not locked together so the machine is easier to manoeuver. Should maximum traction be required, for example when ploughing, the differential can be locked using a lever on the handlebars.
The 340 is the largest in the Ferrari 300 series range. It has ample gears so the correct speed can always be found for the job. A reinforced transmission allows fitting of a wide range of heavy duty attachments, making the 340 a true multi-purpose power unit. The 340 is ideal for landscaping and ground care contractors
