We Tune Tractors

What we can do for your Tractor and how we do it.

Tractor Tuning and tuning of other farm machinery is one of our core skills. If you have an entry level tractor, grain harvester, cain harvester, sprayer, static pump engine general purpose tractor we can increase productivity, improve the economy and increase ground speed. Our team of specialist dealers come to you, find out what you require. They then read your ECU data with specialist tools. We then modify your ECU data to achieve what you require. Our dealers then load the software back in, log the machine running and do a field test to ensure you are happy.

Reliable and economical agricultural machines are an important part of every farmer’s work. No matter if you have a tractor, a combine harvester or a forestry machine – we develop technologies for a more efficient use. By using our economy and fuel saving tunes you can achieve lower fuel consumption for your agricultural machine, you reduce running costs and at the same time receive a better performance.

Tractor tuning can achieve torque increase by up to 30%, an increase of horsepower by up to 20% and a reduction of fuel consumption by up to 5–15%. Due to our ECU software, a reduction in fuel consumption is achieved very often while the driving style stays the same. How does that work? By shifting the torque. This enables the driver to drive at a lower engine speed and reduces fuel consumption. After our tune, your tractor has the same power at a lower torque as compared to before with a higher torque

Tractor Tuning Improvements

Unlock Power

Often your machine is capable of making more power safely but the factory detunes it and makes you buy the next model up to get the power you need.

Increase Ground Speed

By tuning your tractor we can increase ground speed and productivity. Increased productivity saves you time.

Fuel savings

Our tunes often save you fuel due to lower engine loads needed to do the same job. How would you like a smaller fuel bill?

Frequently Asked Questions

Is tuning possible for my tractor?

Use our vehicle search function to check if we cover you tractor

Does tractor tuning shorten my engines life?
This depends on the degree of the tuning modifications. If no limit values are exceeded during the software tuning and you have a “normal” style of driving, no increased wear is to be expected. If the requested modifications deviate from normal standards and/or your driving style does not comply to “normal” standards, the same signs of wear as the engine would be exposed to without chiptuning are to be expected.

Specialist tools to get the job done

We invest heavily in the latest software to develop and test our tunes in house. We have rolling road and PTO dynos around the world at our disposal. We are not scared to innovate and reverse engineer to achieve the goals at hand.

ECU Tuning

Reliable and economical agricultural machines are an important part of every farmer’s work. No matter if you have a tractor, a combine harvester or a forestry machine – Alt Tune develops technologies for a more efficient use of raw materials and energy. This does not only help you save costs but it also protects nature. By using our ECO technologies you can achieve lower fuel consumption for your agricultural machine, you save costs for raw materials and at the same time receive a better performance.

EGR Closure and Disable

We have the ability to close your EGR valve or even un pug it on some models. The EGR is a recirculation system for exhaust gasses. They often fail due to mechanical issue or blocking with soot. By removing your EGR you can prevent this.

AdBlue / DEF Disable

We have the ability to stop AdBlue / DEF injection or unplug the entire system. Like the EGR system they are prone to many issues including circuit errors and blocked injection systems.
