AGCO Tractors Unveiled

February 11, 2009 08:01 AM


Since 1990 AGCO Corporation has grown through a series of more than 20 acquisitions. In early February the company launched its first product for North America that started from scratch. The project started in 2004 with its first focus group in Jackson, Minn., and the result is three series of row crop tractors.

During the National Farm Machinery Show, AGCO executives Doug Griffin (far left), Martin Richenhagen and Bob Crain, discuss their new lineup of row-crop tractors and launching selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology in the ag market.
The AGCO DT Series, Challenger MT600C Series and Massey Ferguson 8600 Series row crop tractors are outfitted with a new engine design, continuously variable transmissions (CVT), a redesigned cab and more.
AGCO Sisu Power engines are the first in the ag industry to feature selective catalytic reduction (SCR). [to read more about this engine design, click here]
AGCO's Fendt brand pioneered CVT, and today the company has more than 70,000 of the transmissions worldwide.
The all-new 4-post cab features 28% more interior space than previous models. In-cab features include a redesigned tilt and telescoping steering wheel, ISOBUS compatible electronics, updated control armrest, cell phone holder and more. An innovative feature of these tractors is the integrated solar panel mounted on the cab's roof that keeps the tractor's battery constantly charged.  
All three brands of tractors are outfitted with CVT. These tractors are manufactured at the company's Beauvais, France factory.
