FPT Industrial's exceptional commitment to excellence results in yet another acknowledgement of its status as a best-in-class player in the powertrain sector. On this occasion, the brand has set a record together with its sister CNH Industrial brand New Holland Agriculture whose CR8.90 recently set a new world record in soybean harvesting in the Bahia State of Brazil. The combine harvester powered by the Cursor 13 MAR-1 (Tier 3) engine was able to harvest a massive 439.73 tons of soybean in eight hours and was certified by the independent organization RankBrasil. The CR 8.90 delivered outstanding performance in exceptionally high yield crop: 4,886 kg per hectare: the model follows in the footsteps of the CR 10.90, which has held the world record title in wheat since 2014.

The Cursor Series is FPT Industrial's flagship engine family for off-road applications, designed to provide best-in-class performance for equipment with highly intensive missions, ensuring low operating costs, high performance and maximum productivity. Specifically designed for heavy-duty off-road applications, the Cursor Series has proven robustness and reliability which leverages structural strength, representing the right solution for the most demanding agriculture, construction and industrial applications (such as large-size tractors, harvesting machines, wheel loaders, forestry equipment).

Available in four engine models (8.7, 10.3, 11.1, 12.9 and 15.9 L displacements), Cursor engines have a 6-cylinder architecture, featuring Electronic Unit Injectors or Common Rail System to ensure optimal combustion efficiency; proven turbocharger architectures allow airflow optimization to deliver high performance and low fuel consumption. With long-standing EGR-free technology, Cursor engines represent the right choice for fuel efficiency, low operating costs and maximum reliability.

Originally developed in 1998, the second generation of Cursor 13 was launched in 2013 which introduces a new heavy-duty Common Rail System and revised engine hardware. Different turbocharger solutions (WG and high-performance two-stage versions) ensure optimized output to meet a wide range of requirements.

The Cursor 13 on the New Holland Agriculture CR8.90 features a high pressure Electronic Unit Injector system, efficient Fixed Geometry Turbocharger delivering high power and torque with competitive fuel consumption. Furthermore, this engine is best-in-class for oil change intervals (600 hours) resulting in reduced vehicle downtime and improved productivity. It has a lean layout, designed to ensure quick and easy maintenance operations.
