820 Vario - Most sold model in Germany
The popular all-rounder from Fendt
The Fendt 820 Vario with 205 hp was the model most in demand last year. With 760 units sold, it is the most-sold tractor on the German market for the third time – a true workhorse for Fendt.
“With the 820 Vario, we have succeeded in doing a hat trick, as one would say in football, and we are very proud of that. With this model, we offer our customers a compact all-rounder that is unique in this power class,” says Andreas Loewel, Managing Director of AGCO Deutschland GmbH proudly. Since its market launch in 2006, the 820 Vario was sold 8,630 times worldwide and therefore already takes second place on the list of the all-time most sold Vario tractors, after the 716 Vario.

The 312 Vario is also very popular; it accounts for the second highest share of Fendt tractor sales. “Overall it is evident that all of our models are very well received and with 100 percent Vario and the continuously variable transmission technology from 70 to 390 hp, we have a sophisticated and mature product line. It is important to us that all of our customers find the ideal tractor for the size of their farming business,” explains Loewel.
