2021 Tractors Of The Year
TOTY recently announced its 2021 Tractors of the Year, celebrating agricultural equipment manufacturers who continue to enhance farming operations with advanced technologies and increased operator comfort features. This year, the panel also focused on sustainability. Let’s take a look at the winners in the top categories.
Overall Tractor Of The Year
The jury selected Massey Ferguson’s 8S.265 as Overall Tractor of the Year. Touted as the quietest cab on the market with 360 degree visibility, this tractor features a new cooling and hydraulics system. Its Dyna-7 engine offers efficient operation of a total of 28 forward and reverse speeds in four ranges and seven seamless gears. The cost-effective transmission delivers smooth and intuitive operation in manual mode or can even be operated fully automatically.
Best Utility Tractor
Considering that utility tractors must be easy to maneuver and versatile, the jury named the Valtra G 135 Versu as its Best Utility Tractor of the Year. It features an advanced power lift and effective working hydraulics. The Valtra’s high hydraulic pump capacities (100/110 l/min) guarantee speed, ease of use and full-featured implement control. And its new 6-speed powershift gives the driver better work-speed possibilities.
Best Specialized Tractor
The jury selected the Fendt V Vario 211 as its Best of Specialized Tractor of the Year. With a full new cab, Fendt has improved the working environment for the driver. The Dynamic Performance extends power range — the extra power (10 hp) is controlled and released automatically according to the working needs. The jury touted its high quality, reliability and very efficient transmission.
Sustainable Tractor of the Year
The jury selected the Claas Axion 960 Cemos as Sustainable Tractor of the Year, citing it as a “big step toward a more sustainable farming” due to all the technology included on the tractor. According to the jury, this helps make the machine even easier to use. In addition, there is a high level of optimization of all the technology and electronics utilized. Tire pressure has been optimized, as well, to help provide fuel savings and more efficient performance in the field in any working condition.
