At a ceremony at EIMA International, Bologna, the winners of the Tractor of the Year 2022 competition were announced, bringing to a close nearly a year of testing and evaluating machines.
Once again sponsored by BKT, the competition celebrates the most innovative and cutting-edge tractors on the market. This year saw the 26 judges engage in studying, observing and testing high-performance tractors from across the industry.

- Tractor of the Year 2022: John Deere with the 7R 350 AutoPowr model
- Best of Utility 2022: John Deere with the 6120M AutoPowr model
- Best of Specialized 2022: Reform with the Metrac H75 pro model
- Sustainable TotY 2022: New Holland with the T6.180 Methane Power model
“We are really proud to be able to support this prestigious award for the second year,” explained Lucia Salmaso, CEO of BKT Europe during the awards ceremony. “We are convinced that the Tractor of the Year is a splendid showcase to enhance and emphasize innovation in agricultural mechanization and therefore in agriculture itself. This is why we will continue to strive to support this event which for us is synonymous with the future, sustainability and technology.
“I offer my warmest congratulations for their excellent work to the winners of the four categories John Deere, Reform, New Holland.”
“We are all very satisfied with this 25th edition of TotY,” said Fabio Zammaretti, president of Tractor of the Year. “The level of tractors competing grows constantly and it was a very tight race. The jury this year, once again, did an extraordinary job in evaluating all the tractors competing for the 4 TotY awards. Our mission is to make the most of the technologies offered by tractors, without forgetting that sustainability plays a fundamental role in our industry. We are also very pleased with the collaboration with BKT, thanks to which we were able to find the perfect mix of digital and face-to-face events.”
