JCB Fastrac Two - the world’s fastest tractor features our wheels and chassis:

JCB’s Fastrac has stormed into the record books after being crowned the world’s fastest tractor with a speed of 135.191 mph.

The Fastrac - designed and built by a team of young engineers in Staffordshire - secured the title at Elvington Airfield in York with motorbike racer and lorry mechanic Guy Martin at the wheel.  The feat was officially ratified by Guinness World Records who presented the company with a special framed certificate minutes after the achievement.

Following two successful runs, the JCB Fastrac broke the world record for a tractor, achieving a peak speed of an incredible 153.771mph and an average of 135.191mph.

With the previous record of 103.6mph having been set by JCB’s Fastrac One in June 2019, the project team embarked on an ambitious plan to break the record again with Fastrac Two – which was 10% lighter and even more streamlined than its predecessor.

Having been involved in the design of the wheels and chassis for the first world record, GKN Wheels & Structures was again invited to work with JCB’s team of young engineers to develop and manufacture wheels and a lightweight chassis that were capable of meeting the additional challenges of Fastrac Two.

The Infini-Swift wheel by GKN is the perfect solution for haul trucks that operate in harsh conditions, with increasing loads and long hours of usage leading to fatigue.
Changing or rotating a tire assembly on a mining machine can be challenging and time-consuming. Downtime is costly.
With our patented technology, the tire removal on a Swift Rim is significantly faster than with standard rims ensuring machine downtime is minimized.
The Infini-Swift design enables tires to be changed without removing the outer or inner wheel assembly arrangement.
The result is up to 50% time saving and safer operation.
