Volcan V800 | V950
Isodiametric tractors, reversible, available with central articulation (AR), with steering wheels (RS), with double steering system (Dualsteer) or with steering wheels configured in haymaking version (MT). 73 or 91 HP
- The Volcan V800 and V950 AR are specialized tractors designed to be used in extremely tight spaces: row crops, vineyards, orchards, greenhouses and nursery gardens as well as all the maintenance work, in both summer and winter, typically done by local municipalities.
to the isodiametric wheels and steering with hydrostatic drive acting
on the central articulation, the best qualities of the Volcan V800 an
V950 AR is its agility and manoeuvrability.
- The Volcan V800 and V950 RS are multi-purpose specialized tractors, particularly performing in vineyards, orchards, nurseries cultivations and greens maintenance.
The low centre of gravity and the rigid frame with front-wheel steering provide outstanding stability and unmatched road grip, allowing Volcan V800 and V950 RS to work in complete safety both on flat and uneven, sloping grounds.
- The Volcan V800 and V950 Dualsteer® are specialized tractors with the exclusive double steering system. The Dualsteer® combining safety and stability of the steering wheel ‘RS’ version with the performance in curves and manoeuvrability of the ‘AR’ version with central articulation.
The short wheelbase and the steering radius to 2200 mm. only (with wheels 280/70-18) make the Volcan V800 and V950 Dualsteer® the ideal machine to be used both on slopes and in the most extreme conditions, where the ability to move with ease and in total safety becomes the only way to work: vineyards and orchards with narrow row spacing, greenhouses as well as all the maintenance works, both in summer and winter, typically done by local municipalities.
- The Volcan V800 and V950 MT are tractors with steering wheels made in the version for mowing fodder, especially in sloping areas.
The structure is characterized by a low centre of gravity for maximum stability on slopes without sacrificing the ground clearance for a rational flow of the mowed fodder under the machine.
To help heat disposal, the cooling system is supported by the Self Cleaning System
which allows the engine and hydraulic system to always operate within the maximum safety margin.
The Dual Floating System
optimizes the load on the ground of the equipment applied to the third point, promoting its 'floating'.
Particular attention has been paid to the driver’s comfort: 6 post rops and approved cabins make for a practical and comfortable driving experience.
The reversible driving position allows to operate practically and rationally both with towed and front attachments.
Two VM engines are available for the Volcan: a 73 HP four cylinder engine (Volcan V800) and a 91 hp four cylinder engine (Volcan V950), both with counter-rotating mass and EGR System.
The decision to use a lower number of rpms, 2,300 rpm/min was conceived to reduce consumption, noise level and vibrations, with the benefit of comfort.
The EGR System located inside the engine allows to reduce the emissions of nitrogen oxides and fuel consumption.

Transmission and gearbox
The Volcan are provided with OS-Frame transmissions: a unique transmission shaft moves both the gearbox main clutch and the PTO independent clutch, while assuring the best mechanical output.
The joint in the middle of the machine lets the front axle oscillate up to 15° with respect to the rear axle, for excellent stability on slopes, as the four wheels are always stuck on the ground.
The 32-speed synchronised gearbox (16 FWD + 16 REV) with synchronized reverser always allows right gear selection for the tasks for which the tractor is intended to.
The 'Long Life' clutch is multidisc in oil bath with a proportional hydraulic control and Pro-Act System for maximum performance and comfort.
The Volcan are equipped with planetary gear axles to minimize wheelbase of the tractor and increase its manoeuvrability.
The 4-wheel drive has got an electro-hydraulically controlled disengagement of the front one.
Pto and hydraulic system
The rear PTO is independent from the gearbox and synchronized with all progress speeds. PTO can be engaged by an electro-hydraulic control, it has a speed of 540/540E rpm or, as optional, 540/1000 rpm. The clutch is multidisc in oil bath.
The solid rear hydraulic lift by rams (optional with position and draft control) relies on multi-purpose practical and versatile couplings to adapt quickly and easily to all marketed equipments.
As optional, it is also available a hydraulically controlled upper link and tie rod which allows adjusting the attachments from the driver’s position, and a performing front lift which is necessary when using combined attachments.
The hydraulic system consists of a double circuit with two independent pumps and dedicated heat exchanger: the hydroguide pump has a flow rate of 28,5 l/min, like the one for the lift and distributors. As optional a 49 l/min oversize pump is available.
A joy stick with electronic control (optional), is used to control both the hydraulic system and the rear lift with a single device.
Active and passive safety
The braking system, with 4 multiple disc wet brakes, is assisted by an hydrostatic control acting as braking distributor which intervenes constantly and simultaneously on the 4 wheels when acting on the pedal.
Exclusive to the Volcan is the independent Brake-off parking brake that is automatically inserted when the engine is off. When the unit is operating, on the other hand, it is controlled with a practical button on the dashboard.
The electro-hydraulically controlled front and rear differential lock, simultaneously or rear only, assures the best traction on any type of grounds.
The roll-bar and the safety belts on the seat protect the operator.
The driving position with platform mounted on silent block is custom-fitted on the driver with ergonomic controls placed to be easily found and activated by the operator.
From the seat the operator enjoys a complete view both on the machine and on the attachments.
The digital display guarantees the total control of the unit.
The hydrostatic steering ensures maximum maneuverability and low turning radii.
The Volcan are equipped with standard reversible driving position: a few seconds are required to rotate by 180° the seat, the steering wheel, the console and brakes-clutch pedals so that the operator may work having the equipment in front of him and constantly be able to control the operations. This means: maximum security and comfort.
Available in Lusso and Comfort versions with air conditioning, the Volcan cabs have been designed with the greatest care to even the smallest details to guarantee the inside comfort and not to damage the environment in which they operate.
The structure is mounted on silent block suspended platform completely independent from the chassis of the tractor in order to reduce noise and vibrations.
The large glass doors improve the driver's view when operating in both traditional and reverse driving position.
