Fendt’s Tractor Management System (TMS) is the key to the easy and economical operation of the. With this function activated, Tim just has to set the desired speed and the tractor runs the transmission and engine RPM as efficiently as possible while maintaining his desired speed of travel.
Tim has owned many different makes of fruit tractors during his career however he has not had a fruit tractor with the unique features Fendt offers in this sector.
“The electronic selection of the three PTO speeds is a great feature Fendt have on this model” said Tim. Fendt have used the Vario Stepless CVT transmission in this tractor and electro hydraulic spool valves. This has allowed for the tractor to have a flat floor and generous cab space which is not the case with many other speciality tractors in this sector.
“I spend long days in the Fendt and the flat floor and well organised cab layout make the days work much more comfortable” said Tim.
The glass sunroof on the Fendt is an asset for Tim and his business as he uses it to look up and inspect his avocados while spraying under the trees.
“In avocado farming I have very short time periods for harvesting the fruit while it is ripe and I need to have every advantage possible to harvest at the correct time, the reliability of the Fendt and the support from my dealer GWS Machinery helps me keep on top of my avocado and citrus fruit harvests” said Tim.
