Case IH Maxxum 145 MultiController wins ‘Tractor of the Year’ and ‘Best Design Title’ 2019
The awards were given at the EIMA Agricultural Trade Show in Bologna, Italy, held during 7-11 November 2018
Case IH, a global agricultural equipment brand of CNH Industrial, was awarded the titles of ‘Tractor of the Year 2019’ and ‘Tractor of the Year - Best Design 2019’ for the Maxxum 145 MultiController, at the EIMA Agricultural Trade Show in Bologna, Italy. EIMA, which ran during 7-11 November, is a biennial event that hosts some 1,900 companies from 40 countries exhibiting more than 50,000 models of machinery and equipment for all types of agricultural operations.
The Tractor of the Year Awards are determined by a jury of professional trade journalists from Europe's top agricultural publications. The Maxxum 145 MultiController was recognized for its transmission, the ActiveDrive 8, eight-step semi-powershift variant, which delivers enhanced operating efficiency. The ergonomic multicontroller armrest and joystick, which facilitate intuitive machine operation, especially when working with complex modern implements, was also a deciding factor. The combination of these features, together with the range’s industry-leading fuel consumption for field work, not only improve farming productivity but also enhance overall sustainability.
This award for the Maxxum MultiController range follows the ‘Machine of the Year 2018’ accolade, conferred at the Agritechnica Trade show in Hannover, Germany, in 2017.
