Agritechnica: Show-Stopping Tractors
by Charlene Finck, Farm Journal Editor
Agritechnica opened for a special preview day on Sunday with more than 2,000 exhibits sprawling in 18 halls at the Hannover fairground. While it is impossible to see everything in one day, two mammoth tractors were show-stoppers and had even those who hadn't seen them talking about the machines. The two – the Deutz Agro XXL and the new Claas Xerion 5000 – were both unveiled to the public at the show.
