New pickup, easy to use, longer service life:
Further development of the Fendt Katana

For the new types of Fendt forage harvester released in model year 2019, the Katana pickup has been further developed; we have expanded the Heavy Duty package (HD) and created the option of a comfort chassis for larger maize attachments.

New pickup

The new grass pickup P3003 Maximum is noted for its improved HD drive and new HD auger but also a greater distance to the front tyre of the Fendt Katana. This significantly improves access to the machine, especially around the infeed.


The new HD drive chain for pickup tines and auger means the drive lasts longer. The HD wear parts on the auger flights and in the transfer area of the pre-bale roller unit offer a significantly longer service life and safety during the harvest.

Easier to use

In the future, owners of the maize attachments 460 plus and 475 plus will also be able to equip their machine with a comfort chassis. This means you can couple and uncouple the chassis without leaving the cab, keep within axle loads and increase safety. Warning device, protective cloths and lighting are fully integrated in the chassis.

HD package extension

The Heavy Duty wear package (HD) available as an option for the Fendt Katana is extended by an HD drum floor. There is also an HD wiper for the smooth roller of the infeed unit. The HD wear parts have a significantly longer service life, which also leads to increased safety during the harvest. Of course, these HD components can also be retrofitted via AGCO parts.






The innovations are available from the 23 August 2018, on the Fendt Field Day in Wadenbrunn.
