FPT Industrial has scored success in the Tractor of the Year 2021 Awards with the Claas AXION 960 CEMOS named Sustainable Tractor of the Year.

The winning tractor is fitted with the latest generation of FPT’s Cursor 9 Stage V engine and this 6-cylinder engine delivers maximum power of 327 kW /460 hp at 1,800 rpm and maximum torque of 1,860 Nm at 1,400 rpm.

The Cursor 9 is a member of FPT Industrial’s flagship engine family for off-road applications, designed to provide high performance for applications with highly intensive missions, ensuring low operating costs and maximum productivity.

Key features include top class performance with up to +9% power density compared with the market average in the nine-litre range, fast load response and maximum in-field productivity thanks to high torque availability and an eVGT.

It also boasts a high system efficiency and low fluid consumption with EGR-free combustion and second-generation common rail, low running costs with FPT’s exclusive, maintenance-free Hi-SCR2 after-treatment solution and proven system reliability thanks to robust and lean design and EGR-free combustion.

Andy Smith, director at Hendy Power said that farmers are increasingly looking to use sustainable technology in their businesses and this win reinforces FPT’s credentials in this area of business.

“The optimisation of all the technology and all the electronics, including tyre pressures, allows to this tractor to achieve remarkable fuel savings and a much more efficient in-field performance in all working condition,” said Andy.

“We are extremely proud to be an integral part of this great achievement”, says Marco Zanelli, head of market segment off-road. “Cursor 9’s DNA, in terms of high performance in a compact layout, top class transient response and low fuel consumption, robustness and reliability in all working conditions, proved, once again, to be the best solution for all off-road vehicle manufacturers aiming to reach top performance and true economic and ecological sustainability.”
