The tractor of the Year 2022 Awards, held at the recent EIMA show in Bologna, handed out a brace of gongs for the Green Giant John Deere.

The 7R350 picked up the prestigious Overall Tractor of the Year 2022, impressing the judges with its on-board technology and automation, a wide, spacious cab said to offer outstanding operator comfort, while the Active Command steering and E-Z Ballast weight systems, also received a special mention.

Also winning the TOTY 2022 Best utility Class, the JD 6120M scored highly for its compact nature and 2.4 metre wheelbase, 4.7 tonne payload capacity, the latest precision technology and its inherent suitability for fitting a front-end loader package.

In other categories, the relatively unknown Reform Metrac H75 pro picked up the Best Specialised Award, while the well exposed New Holland T6 165 Methane tractor, as expected, came away with the Best Sustainable Tractor Award.

Running since 1998 and currently sponsored by tyre manufacturer BKT, the TOTY Awards programme winners are picked by a jury of 26 agricultural machinery journalists from 25 countries.
