Agricultural journalists choose the Fendt 1000 Vario

The “Zemědělec” trade journal chose the Fendt 1000 Vario as the “Machine with a very wide range of applications for agricultural production”.

And the Fendt 1000 Vario garnered the third award. The “Zemědělec” trade journal chose the Fendt 1000 Vario as the “Machine with a very wide range of applications for agricultural production”.

This honours the biggest standard tractor, which is predestined for operations on the road as well as in the field. For high-horsepower tractors, in particular, the design benefits of a standard tractor really count, e.g. high manoeuvrability and visibility, high ride comfort in the field and on the road, variability regarding tyres and hitch systems and countless areas of application.
