Tractor test: JCB Fastrac 1135

JCB deserves credit for the way it introduced a completely new systems tractor design at a time when other companies were rationalising. But JCB has also continued to develop the Fastrac as a systems tractor and the latest 1100 range is another landmark in its history. This test takes a close look at the 100kW/135hp Fastrac 1135.
