The Optimum Balance of Power, Size, and Versatility.
Optum series tractors are designed to meet the customer needs for dimensions, power, comfort, hydraulic capacity, and weight. With this flexibility the Optum tractor delivers on everything fropm haulage and roading applications to tillage, planting and seeding, and hay and forage operations.


Proven Engine Performance
The proven 6.7L engines are built to produce power for the toughest field conditions. Reinforced material can handle anything the Optum will put this engine through.

  • When specific conditions are met, the engine will idle at a lower speed to conserve fuel
  • Industry-Leading SCR-Only Efficient Power Technology Proven, simple, single system solution to meet emissions standards without compromising fuel efficiency



Reliable CVXDrive Transmission
The CVXDrive is a reliable transmission for infinite ground speed control that delivers the power to the ground in field and road applications, while allowing for maximum fuel efficiency by managing the engine RPM and transmission speed. The CVXDrive transmission features:

  • Four forward ranges and two reverse ranges
  • Double clutch technology for smooth and efficient operation
  • Automatic mode saves fuel and allows the operator to focus on other tasks
  • Automatic range shift maximizes mechanical efficiency
  • Active stop feature allows for ease of starting and stopping tractor, especially on inclines
  • Built-in creeper speeds
