More power, precision come to tractors

TAGS: precision
What’s New: More tech and comfort are also coming to many tractor models.

Maybe you need over 600 hp or maybe you just need 30 to do your jobs. Either way, equipment companies have you covered with new tractor introductions. There are very sophisticated, high-tech models to choose from, along with economy models, sometimes in the same brand.

Kubota made one of the most recent introductions, bringing out a new line of utility tractors with features that are bound to make your life easier. Massey-Ferguson also made two recent introductions, bringing out compact utility tractors in both the 1800/2800 M Series and the 1800/2800 E Series. The M series is designed for operators who want creature-comfort features like cabs. If you’re after economy but dependability, then check out the E-series.

Fendt introduced a whole new lineup of tractors coming to North America from now into 2022. The Fendt 700 series is notable because these Gen6 tractors feature a completely new, operator interface inside the cab. It’s designed for use with precision technology, and is designed ergonomically for operator comfort.

The same interface will be offered when the Fendt 300 series comes to North America in 2022, bringing precision and more comfort features to a line of tractors with less horsepower than where you usually expect to find these features.

The Case IH Steiger 540 AFS Connect tractor is all about connectivity in the new world of big data and precision agriculture. If you’re after a big tractor, check it out at your local dealer.
