Yearly Agrishow was held in May in Brazil at Ribeirão Preto. AGCO product launches made the show extremely interesting. From the beginning of year 2017 Tier3 emission level engines are mandatory in the heavy line machines – locally this emission level is called as MAR-1.
Simultaneously with the MAR-1 compliant engine launch, Valtra and Massey Ferguson made significant improvements to their tractors. The hard work paid off as Centurion based Massey Ferguson 6700-serie tractor with AGCO Power 44 MD Common rail engine was awarded Tractor of the Year award in its engine power category. Also Valtra’s splendid new T-series tractor was awarded Tractor of the year award but in a higher engine power category. In addition to this the T-series tractor was awarded Best Machine award in the category above 200 hp.
The T-series tractor does not only have a new beautiful look but it also contains many significant technical improvements in addition to the award winning AGCO Power 74CW3 engine. From the customer point of view the most important new feature is most likely the new CVT gearbox, which is fully automatic and with unlimited range of speeds.
