JCB Fastrac 4220: High on comfort, low on fuel

JCB’s Fastrac 4000s have been flowing off the production line for over four years now and have made something of a name for themselves, performing both on the road and in the field.

This month’s long-term test subject is a tractor that really challenged convention when it first appeared at Agritechnica in 2013 — the JCB Fastrac 4000.
