What’s new from the shows: Most new tractor models are equipped for 21st century technology.
October 25, 2018
You wouldn’t feel like you’d been to a farm show if you couldn’t come home and tell your spouse that you saw at least one new tractor. Several companies introduced new models of tractors and displayed them on their lots at recent farm shows.
The list of what’s new in tractors includes everything from a subcompact tractor from Mahindra to important upgrades on 6R Series tractors from John Deere. Upgrades on the 6R Series and the John Deere 5125 utility tractor help make both models “future-friendly.” The utility model features precision agriculture technology that you wouldn’t expect to find on a utility tractor. By including options offered for these tractors, you can equip them to perform effectively in 21st century agriculture.
The familiar green color of Deutz-Fahr was back at farm shows for the first time in years. The company is reintroducing tractors in the U.S., bringing a lineup with a wide range of horsepower to this country. They’re equipped with some of the most advanced transmissions and other internal features available on tractors anywhere, with components made by some of the world’s most respected leaders in their fields.
Learn what you can here by clicking through the slideshow below. Then visit a local dealer to test-drive any tractors you think might be a fit for your farm.
