FPT Industrial powers the “Sustainable Tractor of the Year 2021”, the CLAAS AXION 960 CEMOS. The winning tractor is fitted with the latest generation of FPT’s Cursor 9 Stage V engine. 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.
It’s also worth remembering that out of 18 candidates for the Tractor of Year 2021 awards, seven were powered by FPT Industrial engines: Class Axion 960 CEMOS – Cursor 9, CASE IH Quadtrac 620 – Cursor 13, Landini Serie 7 V Shift – N67, New Holland T6.160 – N67, STEYR 6240 Absolut CVT – N67, CASE IH Vestrum 130 CVX Drive – N45, Valtra F105 – F34. This is the second time the “Sustainable Tractor of the Year” has been awarded, and it is intended to honor tractors that stand out for their particularly sustainable technology. The first edition of this category awarded the New Holland Methane Power tractor concept powered by the FPT Industrial N67 Natural Gas.
“With the Claas AXION 960, and thanks to the CEMOS system, a big step towards more sustainable farming has been achieved. All the technology available on this tractor is easier to use than ever. The optimization of all the technology and all the electronics, including the optimization of tyre pressures, allows to this tractor to achieve remarkable fuel savings and a much more efficient in-field performance in all working condition”, explains the international jury of 26 specialist journalists.
Normally, the winners are awarded every year at either the EIMA or Agritechnica tradeshows. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, for the first time the award ceremony took place virtually and was streamed as a live broadcast.
“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.”
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 vs. the market average in the nine liter. range; fast load response and maximum in-field productivity thanks to high torque availability and an eVGT; 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.
