The History of JCB Tractors

JCB Fastrac tractors gained recognition for their ability to achieve high speeds on the road. The first JCB Fastrac tractor was publicly unveiled at the Royal Show in 1990, but its history dates back to the 1980s when company chairman Anthony Bamford conceived the idea of creating a tractor that could move quickly on roads in addition to field work.
The first prototypes of the Fastrac, with independent suspension on all wheels and the ability to reach maximum speeds of up to 75 km/h, were developed in secret beneath the JCB Transmissions office building in 1987. They were tested and refined based on feedback from farmers, and the project, known as Project P120 and valued at £12 million, was publicly revealed in 1990.
The first models of the JCB Fastrac, designated as the 125 (120 HP) and 145 Turbo (140 HP), debuted in 1991, and two years later, the Selectronic gearbox with two-speed gear change was introduced, improving overall usability. In the following years, models with power ranging from 150 to 180 HP were introduced.
In 1995, the 1115 model was introduced, smaller and more maneuverable, but with a limited maximum speed of 50 km/h, designed to run on agricultural “jodhpur” type tires. In subsequent years, the Fastrac series was expanded with new models, such as the 2150 (148 HP), equipped with new engines and a 54×18 Autoshift gearbox.
In 2005, JCB introduced the 8250 model with a maximum power of 250 HP, and in 2008, the 7000 series with power ranging from 178 to 270 HP. These models were equipped with CVT and P-Tronic drive systems.
In 2013, the 4000 series was introduced, advertised as the most advanced in the model’s history. It includes models with power ranging from 175 to 235 HP, equipped with a CVT gearbox, self-leveling suspension front and rear, and an advanced cab located in the middle of the vehicle.
