Wheels from GKN Land Systems have helped a 7.7-tonne vehicle set a new record for the world’s fastest tractor.

Four JMJ Forest wheels supplied by GKN Land Systems’ facility in Denmark featured on the Valtra T234 tractor when it achieved the record on an emergency airfield approximately 20km from the city of Sodankylä in Lapland. The tractor was driven by four-times World Rally Champion Juha Kankkunen and reached speeds of 130.165km/h or 80.88mph.

John Madsen, Director Engineering & Product Management - Wheels Systems, said: “This is a great achievement and proves that our wheels are not only among the best in the industry, but are also trusted by our customers to be used in the most rigorous conditions.”
