JCB duo named Machines of the Year at top Paris show
TWO of JCB’s newest and most innovative products have been named as Machine of the Year for 2017 at one of the world’s leading agricultural shows.
Machine of the Year – Tractor
The 8000 Series JCB Fastrac received the award in the 280-400 hp tractor category.
Machine of the Year – Handling
The JCB Agripro Loadall telescopic handler secured the accolade in the handling section.
The awards were handed out at the prestigious SIMA show this week in Paris where the brand new products received their international show debuts.
A JCB spokesman said:
“We are delighted to have won both of these awards. They are a tribute to the whole JCB team involved in the design, engineering and manufacturing of these two innovative products.”
The Fastrac 8000 Series won the accolade thanks to its speed, comfort and innovation. The JCB Agripro Loadalls feature a unique DualTech VT variable transmission. This offers customers the best of both worlds by combining the precision flexibility of hydrostatic with the speed and acceleration of powershift in a single transmission.
Machine of the Year competition
The Machine of the Year competition honours the most innovative agricultural products. Winners are decided by a jury of European journalists specialising in farm machinery. In order to compete, machines must sold in at least five European countries.
