(Note: This DVD has also been advertised as ‘Modern Tractors – The First Decade of the 21st Century).
Welcome to the world of the modern tractor, full of powerful technologically advanced machines controlled by electronics and computer systems. In this, the first part of a close look at how the modern tractor has developed over the last ten years or so, we trace the evolution of John Deere, Claas, Valtra, Same, Deutz Fahr and Case IH models of the present day back to their origins in the models of the 1990s. Stephen Richmond also takes a close look at how powershift transmissions have changed in the last ten years, as well as demonstrating how the CVT transmission has replaced the powershift as the ultimate in tractor transmissions.
