First opportunity to view at Lamma

Fendt 1000 Vario

LAMMA 2016 will be the first public showing of the new Fendt 1000 Vario in the UK. The new Fendt 1000 Vario range consists of 4 models (1038 Vario, 1042 Vario, 1046 Vario, 1050 Vario) and is a compact standard high-horsepower tractor ranging from 380 – 500 hp. Its compact design and low unladen weight of 14 tonnes mean it is extremely versatile. The tractor can be used for a range of tasks including transport work (60 km/h) or heavy PTO work such as wood chipping or mulching as well as more common agricultural tasks such as land preparation. The low unladen weight makes it ideal for work requiring low ground pressure, such as drilling. Thanks to its flexible ballasting concept, the vehicle can be ballasted according to need with up to 50 percent of its base weight. Thanks to its modular equipment options, with/without rear linkage or rear PTO, and the large number of hydraulic, hitch and linkage variants, it is compatible with all conventional implements, even those of previous high-horsepower tractors. The Fendt 1000 Vario has been designed for the heaviest draft work which, until now, has been reserved for articulated, tracked and system tractors.

Fendt Katana 85

The Fendt Katana 85 will be on show for the first time at LAMMA 2016. Serial production of the Fendt Katana 85 began in early 2015 and joins the Fendt Katana 65 which was introduced to the UK in 2013. The Fendt Katana 85 features a 21 litre V12 MTU engine developing 850 hp. The Fendt Katana range features variable header speed with ground following capability in all crops. The Fendt Katata range also features six feed rollers. The combination of these two features ensure a smoother crop flow. Crop is presented evenly to the cylinder and shear bar helping the machine achieve an industry leading chop length consistency. The Fendt Katana range is available with a 20, 28 or 40 knife cylinder. This enables customers to achieve chop lengths from 2.6 mm to 29 mm depending on the cylinder that is selected with a full set of knives. The Fendt Katana 85 can be specified with a 1430 litre fuel tank or a combination of fuel and additive tanks are also available depending on the customers’ requirements. The Fendt Katana range also features the Visio5 cab, offering extreme comfort, visibility and ease of operation.

Fendt 313 Vario and 4X75 Compact Loader

Fendt will also be showing new Fendt 313 Vario with a 4X75 Compact Fendt Cargo loader. By moving the loader 100 mm closer to the tractor the need for a rear ballast weight or wheel weights is removed. This means the rear of the tractor is free for quickly coupling and uncoupling to a trailer when loading bales or filling a feeder wagon.

As well as these new machines the best-selling Fendt 724 Vario and Fendt 939 Vario will be on show for customers to view.
