Presented at this month’s EIMA trade fair in Bologna,
Italy, the award is sponsored by the Italian magazine Trattori in
cooperation with other European trade publications from 19 different
countries. It is designed to recognise the most advanced
tractor technology on the market, from the point of view of European
readers and customers.
The award trophy was handed over to the general manager of John
Deere Italiana, David Colquhoun and John Deere Werke Mannheim
factory marketing manager, Remi Hanot by a representative of
the international ‘Tractor of the Year’ jury.
This is the fifth major European product award in 12 months
for John Deere 8030 Series tractors, following an Agritechnica
gold medal in Germany, the Techagro Grand Prix in the Czech Republic,
the 2006 ‘Diesel of the year’ in Italy and the FIMA
innovation award in Spain.
“In light of fuel price increases and the growing impact
of environmental regulations, European juries clearly value the
improved fuel economy and environmental performance aspects of
our machines,” says Graham Thompson, John Deere’s
European divisional marketing manager for 7030, 8030 and 9020
Series Waterloo tractors.
“These awards are also in line with the results of a Nebraska
test which was recently conducted on an 8430 tractor. According
to this independent test, the John Deere 8430 holds the world
record for lowest specific fuel consumption among row-crop tractors.”
