The new FR920 flagship model features the all-new FPT Industrial V20 engine developed for forage harvesting applications. It delivers a massive 670 kW (911 hp) maximum power at 1600 to 1800 rpm, 4,095 Nm maximum torque and a productivity-boosting 44% torque rise at 2100-1600 rpm.

The power curve specifically mapped to match the precise requirements of foraging applications ensures the best transient response, so that the FR reacts fast to changing load. The V20 engine delivers the most fuel-efficient performance in the 1600 to 1900 rpm working range. This, together with the low maintenance costs result in the machine’s excellent Total Cost of Operation.
