Readin classic tractor and it said cummins in talks with tractor manufacturers about supplyin them engines. So its unlikely gonna be massey fendt valtra jd case nh steyr 4 pot kubota 4 pot zetor deutz same as they all already have ther own engines made in house. The other options include mccormick claas landini lindner zetor and kubota 6 pot. So as kubota recently purchased versatile and they already use cummins could it be that kubota plans to introduce 6 pot cummins in smaller than versatile tractors to fit between them and a m7. Possibly a m8 comin? Obviously just my own theory

Not exactly a Cummins as in the old understanding of Cummins. Yes it is, but it’s also the same motor as the FPT 6.7.

Does fpt own cummin or vice versa?
From what I remember Cummins had a shared company with Case Corp called CDC, (consolidated Diesel corp) it goes back to the 80’s as I remember reading about a 1494 prototype testing with a CDC engine.

Sometime in the mid 90’s EEA was formed, (European Engine Alliance) they developed the NEF (new engine family) a joint venture between Cummins, Iveco and NH. Later NH became CNH global.

Cummins owned a 50% share in CDC so too CNH, Cummins bought its share out about 2010 owning CDC outright.

Cummins sold its 33% share in EEA making it fully under FPT control.

So not involved with each other any more so it is a cummins engine bein fitted to kubota

Farmers Guardian had a feature in their machinery section this week, tractors being Dyno tested. The Cummins engine in the Maxxum put in a stonking performance, better than newer tractors.

If they're using a fpt engine and the ZF poweshift gearbox ( which it looks like they are ) then it's just a McCormick / landini in orange paint and a kubota cab .:unsure:

AHDB has announced yesterday it is winding down significant activities on behalf of the horticulture and potatoes sectors.

While still awaiting a decision on the future by Ministers in England, Scotland and Wales, AHDB wants to reassure levy payers their views have been heard following recent ballots in the two sectors.

AHDB is now stopping programmes of work that could be restarted in the future by grower associations, individual growers or the supply chain. This work includes for example, export market access and promotional international trade event work, consumer marketing campaigns and market pricing and insight information.
