STRONGER THAN 600 HORSES

Presenting the powerhouses among tractors.

By Anke Henrich

Schlepperfreunde" (towing friends) is a designation for German fans of both small and large tractors. With their cabins full of digital assistants, they are able to travel autonomously across fields thanks to GPS data. Powerhouses with delicate sensor technology for precision agriculture. Displays in the cabins show field and machine data in real time. At the same time, these farmland giants are required to be ever more fuel-efficient, while improved front axle suspension systems prevent "power hopping". A German reference book on the giants among agricultural machines provides detailed information on 1,000 tractors, including technical details such as model year, engine displacement or horsepower – and is a weighty tome in its own right. VDMAimpulse keeps things a bit shorter: here are five of the most powerful tractors in the world.
