The 1000th Fendt 1000 Vario will roll off the production line before Christmas, generating high demand not only in Europe but also in new markets such as North America and South Africa, Fendt claim.
After his first season with the 1000 Vario, Dale Kitschens, a Texan farmer with around 2,700 acres of land, is especially impressed with its economical diesel consumption; “At a full torque of just 1,100 rpm, it offers huge advantages in terms of diesel consumption. We can work for four days straight without filling up with diesel, which is an absolute first for us.”
The DLG Powermix Test has now confirmed this in its independent tests. The result of 235 g/kwh diesel consumption on the Fendt 1042 Vario is the lowest the test has ever seen. AdBlue consumption is 19 g/kwh.
Fendt is also celebrating its first order of the self-driving Rogator 600 sprayer at Agritechnica. Farmer and contractor Arnold Breithecker from Beselich decided to go with the new Fendt model, that Fendt say has an outstanding ground clearance combined with a faultless Fendt operating concept.
