The strength to hammer your toughest jobs comes from the AGCO POWER Tier 4i compliant engine with clean-air technology. This six-cylinder workhorse is forged from solid cast iron to be on the job for years to come.

  • Four valves per cylinder and a new injector location deliver more efficient combustion.
  • Cross-flow head design for cooler intake temperature and a higher energy intake charge.
  • Single-side servicing gets you in the field faster to humiliate tough jobs.
  • Large viscous drive fan runs only when you need it to save fuel and horsepower.
  • Narrow in-line design helps you see more and turn in a shorter radius.


The simplicity and performance of the TechStar ™ CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) means your toughest jobs are living on borrowed time.

  • The industry’s only clutchless, stepless transmission means less maintenance and a truly smooth ride.
  • Access the speed choices and power reserves hiding in the speed ranges between gears.
  • Move the control lever in the direction you want to go and choose your speed. That’s all there is to it.
  • Three automatic versions of pedal mode quickly change with the demands of the job.
  • Industry-exclusive power management helps the engine and transmission work together on the most efficient setting.
  • Two continually variable speed ranges keep you on the move, whether you’re working in the field or in transport.
