McCormick X6.440 VT Drive

The 2017 edition of Agritechnica opened with many awards ceremonies. A jury composed by 24 international expert journalists decided to mention FPT Industrial both in the “Tractor of the Year 2018” and “Machine of the Year 2018”. FPT Industrial was involved five times during these ceremonies: first for equipping McCormick’s X6.440 VT-Drive tractor, which won the “Tractor of the Year” award in the “Best Utility” category, then for powering Case IH Maxxum Multicontroller, STEYR Profi, New Holland Agriculture T6.175 Dynamic Command in the “Mid-Class” category and the CLAAS AXION 900 in the “High Horsepower tractors” category of the “Machine of the Year” award.

FPT Case IH Engines

FPT Industrial will be present within the Case IH exhibit at the 2017 Farm Progress Show and feature engines that power agricultural machinery.

The Farm Progress Show is the largest outdoor farm event in the United States: from the 29th until the 31st of August farmers, agribusinesses and brands will gather from all over the US and around the world to discover the agriculture industry’s newest developments in equipment, technologies, products and services.

FPT Industrial and Case IH, sister brands within CNH Industrial, collaborate together for this event and celebrate the 175th anniversary of the Case IH brand. Visitors to the Case IH exhibit can discover four different FPT engines: three from the Cursor family – Cursor 9 (8.7L), Cursor 13 (12.9L) and Cursor 16 (15.9L) – and one from NEF, the N67 (6.7L). These engines power Case IH tractors, harvesters, sprayers, floaters, windrowers, and the new combination applicator – Trident 5550.
