FPT Industrial Equips the New Holland T3F, Awarded ‘Best of Specialized’ at TOTY® 2015
FPT Industrial, leading powertrain supplier of engines for on and off-road applications, provides its Series 8000 engine to the newly-crowned New Holland T3F tractor, which has won the ‘Best of Specialized’ accolade at the 2015 Tractor of the Year® (TOTY) awards.
Established in 1998 by Italian magazine Trattori, the ‘Best of Specialized’ is part of the TOTY awards, which recognises European innovations in tractors for specialist applications, such as orchards and vineyards, where compactness of the machines is fundamental for operators. The jury consists of around 20 European journalists representing the most influential agricultural magazines.
T3F tractors are equipped with an FPT Industrial Series 8000 engine, a 2.9-litre unit with three cylinders and turbo intercooler. Compliant with Tier 3 emission regulations, it provides a robust and reliable solution while ensuring low noise and vibration and reduced fuel consumption. Thanks to the high available torque (up to 295 Nm) and a 34% backup, the engine provides outstanding performance in the field.
The engine is part of the Series 8000 range developed by FPT, which also includes a 3.9-litre displacement, four-cylinder, in-line version. Turbocharged and equipped with internal Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR), the Series 8000 allows customers to optimise engine installation on the machine and guarantees excellent vehicle performance with low operating costs.
During 2014 FPT Industrial engines obtained many important successes on an international basis: in May, at SaMoTer in Verona, the prestigious DIESEL OF THE YEAR® 2014 title was bestowed on FPT’s Cursor 16 engine. Meanwhile, the ‘International Van of the Year’ 2015 title was awarded to the F1 Series-equipped new Iveco Daily at the 65th edition of the IAA Commercial Vehicles exhibition in Hannover, Germany.
