FIAT Tractors History
Fiat was founded in 1899 by a group of investors, including Giovanni Agnelli. In 1902, Agnelli becomes the manager of the company, which has become one of the world's largest car manufacturers. The history of the Fiat Trattori began in 1918, when the company produced its first tractor, the Fiat 702, with a capacity of 30 hp. The Fiat 25R was released in 1951 and became a pivotal car in Fiat's history. It was the most innovative tractor in the European agricultural machinery market, the first in a long series of tractors, up to 1983. In total, almost 45,000 diesel-powered vehicles were produced.
The Fiat 25R is powered by a Fiat 1901 cc diesel engine producing 24 hp. at 2000 rpm. Early versions were equipped with a 4-speed manual transmission, while later versions were equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission. The 25R was equipped with an electric starter, which was very unusual for tractors at the time.
