The Fendt 6335 C PLI – a new model for slopes

AGCO/Fendt expands its line of combines for steep slopes with the Fendt 6335 C ParaLevel Integrale (PLI). The well-known ParaLevel system enables side-to-side slope compensation of up to 20 percent, while the Integral system levels fore-to-aft tilt using the rear axle. It automatically compensates for slopes up to 30 percent when driving up slopes, and up to 10 percent when driving downwards. With the combination of the ParaLevel and Integral systems, the machine is kept completely level, even on steep slopes. Crop flow in the feed, threshing, separating and cleaning systems remains uniform, resulting in a clean sample and optimal threshing quality. In this way, the Fendt combine can also make use of the full machine capacity on steep slopes, which guarantees high productivity. The four-wheel drive on the Fendt 6335 C PLI ensures ideal traction and therefore greater safety in hilly terrain.

Intuitive control through new Variotronic terminal generation

The 7-B and 10.4-B Varioterminals in smartphone look, familiar from the tractors, are now also available in the “Proline” and “Skyline” combine cabs. They are marked by intuitive operation through the combined use of touch and key control elements. Thanks to a new bracket with ball joint, the Varioterminals can be adjusted flexibly. They have a clear resolution with LED backlighting and a scratch-proof, full front glass surface that is easy to clean. In the Varioterminal 7-B, in addition to controlling the machine functions, it is also possible to save settings for all major types of crops and control the diagnostics functions. The Varioterminal 7-B is available in the Proline cab. The Varioterminal 10.4-B additionally offers two camera ports and can be upgraded with the Fendt VarioGuide guidance system and Fendt VarioDoc documentation system. The combines in the C, P and X-Series have the Varioterminal 10.4-B as standard specification in the Skyline cab.

New table guidance for improved threshing performance

All machines in the C, L, P and X-Series now have TerraControl IITM table guidance as standard specification. TerraControl IITM allows the selection of three different cutting heights, for clean crop pick-up and feed, even in difficult harvesting conditions. The side-to-side table guidance compensates for uneven ground up to eight percent. In addition, TerraControl IITM table guidance also includes field pressure control, which guarantees that the table is guided directly above the ground when harvesting laid crops.

Increase in threshing performance with the throughput control system Constant Flow

The Constant Flow throughput control system automatically adapts the driving speed of the combine to the density of the crop. Two sensors in the threshing unit drive determine the load on the machine, so that the load on the threshing unit can be kept as constant as possible. The throughput control system is standard in the P and X-Series.

Market share expanded in harvesting sector

Combines for the different AGCO brands are built in the AGCO Harvesting Centre of Excellence in Breganze, Italy. With 45 percent, Fendt has become the largest taker of combines from Breganze. In compliance with the AGCO Guidelines for offering a full-line of products from the Fendt brand, market shares increased significantly in the first half of the year with the help of existing and new sales partners in Bulgaria, Poland and Turkey. For the entire region Central and South Eastern Europe, market share increased by one percentage point in the past season. Thus Fendt was able to prove itself in a difficult economic environment. The Fendt combine line was presented to Italian farmers and contractors for the first time at the EIMA 2014 in Bologna. Today Fendt harvesting machinery is already in its second season in Italy. Fendt harvesting was introduced to the Turkish and Swedish markets this year. The Fendt square balers were also launched on the markets in Turkey and France.
