The Tractor of the Year jury has picked the new Valtra G135 Versu in the Best Utility category for 2021. The jury awarded the multipurpose and utility tractor above 70 horsepower that offers the best solutions available on market.
Introduced in autumn 2020, the Valtra G Series brings the advanced features of bigger tractors to smaller tractors in the 105–135 horsepower range. Versu models feature a Power-shift transmission and easy-to-use SmartTouch user interface. The G Series has been designed as an all-purpose tractor for farms that is ideal for front-loader tasks. The G-Series also has a lot of precision farming features that have traditionally been available only for larger tractors.
Tractor of the Year is the most prestigious award in the industry. The jury comprises 27 European tractor journalists, each representing their own country. According to tradition, jury members have the opportunity to test drive the finalists in real-life conditions on the field. There are four award categories: Tractor of the Year, Best Utility, Best Specialized and Sustainable Tractor of the Year. The Best Utility category is for four-cylinder tractors with more than 70 horsepower.
