The right tyre pressure is a topic that AGCO/Fendt has been pursuing for a long time. AGCO/Fendt receives its second silver medal for an innovation that also concerns the right traction: the Fendt Grip Assistant. To assist tractor drivers in choosing the right ballast weight and setting the correct tyre pressure, Fendt has developed a new assistance system, which recommends the right ballast weight and optimal inflation pressure directly on the terminal. “Then the tyre pressure control system will inflate the tyres automatically to the proper field or road pressure. The optimum pressures are then automatically set for best soil protection and efficient traction,” says the DLG jury.
The developers at Fendt were also awarded silver medals for two new products from the harvesting division. AGCO/Fendt is the first manufacturer at the Agritechnica 2015 to exhibit a rotary hay rake with innovative electric integral drive, where the electric motor is directly integrated in the rake socket. Regarding the Fendt Former 12555 X, the jury says, “Each rotor can operate at its own individual speed and can thus respond to the specific harvest conditions. The specific energy input is lower than that on direct drive systems.”
