XERION Tractors Break Records at Nebraska Tractor Test Lab

The XERION 4500 and XERION 5000 tractors are raising the bar when it comes to efficiency, cab noise, pull-to-weight ratio and more, because these four-wheel-drive tractors broke several records during their evaluation by the Nebraska Tractor Test Lab (NTTL).

The NTTL, based at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, is the officially designated tractor testing station in the U.S. Since 1919, they have tested more than 2,000 tractors, providing independent third-party analysis.

The XERION 4500

The XERION 4500 now holds the record as the most fuel-efficient tractor in the 4WD, 450-500 hp class. Pair that with new records in power-take-off (PTO) hp (hr)/gallon in rated engine speed (18.33), and you’ve got one amazing combination.

The XERION 4500 also set a new 25-year record in the ballasted portion of the test, dispelling the belief that tracks necessarily provide more pulling power than tires. The 4WD tractor tested with a higher maximum pull, pull difference and pull-to-weight ratio than a comparable tractor with tracks.

The cab noise level of the XERION 4500 is quieter than a Cadillac Escalade traveling at 65 miles per hour, registering at just 68.5 decibels. That was a new record… until they tested the XERION 5000.

The XERION 5000

The XERION 5000 was even quieter than the record-breaking 4500, coming in at just 67.0 decibels.

This tractor also did very well in the three-point hitch test, achieving a maximum force of 21,738 pounds in the continuous lift test.

Head-To-Head Comparisons

Both XERION models competed against top tractors in engine lugging capacity, and both came out on top, setting a record for low engine speed while providing maximum torque. That’s due in large part to the XERION tractor’s ECCOM CVT transmission.
