So, sit back and enjoy five of our favourite tractors we've reviewed over the past little while.

And if this gets you in the mood for a new or second-hand machine, make sure is your first stop.

Fendt 720 S4 tractor

Fendt 720 S4 tractor review

For those who like high spec’d tractors (We definitely fit into that category) this Fendt 720 is about as close as you are going to get to ‘having all the boxes ticked’.

So, it's fair to say Jaiden Drought had a great time tickling some soil for a local farmer in one of AGCO’s slickest machines.

There's a reason why Fendt tractors are known as the Rolls Royce of the ag world - enjoy!


John Deere 6155R tractor

John Deere 6155R tractor review

John Deere’s  6155R ‘mid-frame’ tractor is a seriously good bit of gear, with exceptional build quality, some of the best technology in the biz, and top-notch operator comfort. 

So, read why the John Deere tractor made the the trip out to cold Ballarat all worth it!


Challenger MT740 tractor

Challenger MT740 working hard

Arguably, the Challenger MT740 is the hottest tractor to hit our shores in quite some years.

Jaiden Drought was thrilled at the opportunity to experience the MT740 tractor and its 405hp AGCO Power 9.8L Tier 3B 7-cylinder diesel engine.


Claas Arion 660 tractor 

Claas Arion 600 series tractor review

Harry got behind the wheel of the latest Claas Arion 660. 

With a slight facelift and an upgraded tier 4 final engine, the new Claas Arion 600 series looks good on paper, but does it check out?

The simple answer is yes!


Valtra T234 tractor

Valtra T234 tractor review

The name Valtra sounds like something from Star Trek and its current crop of tractors isn’t too far off it – sitting in the latest Valtra T Series cabin did make me feel like I was in the cockpit of a spaceship.

And while warp speed might be a way off, the Valtra T234D is among the world’s fastest, clocking a top speed of 130km/h an hour on snow a few years ago.

Regular readers of will remember that the Valtra T254 won top tractor of the year at Agritechnica 2018 – and the T234D has a lot of similarities to it.
