On a 400 m² stand, Fendt exhibits eight tractors from the Fendt 200 Vario V/F/P specialty tractor series in many different variations, with a maximum output ranging from 70 hp to 110 hp. For example, with different tyre concepts, with diverse outer widths, in many equipment variants and, of course, with different implements such as a vine puller, vineyard cultivator, mulcher, leaf remover or leaf cutter.
Also new is the HORTITECHNICA trade fair for specialty crops, which is organised for the first time by the German Agricultural Society (DLG), an internationally renowned fair organiser, and features extensive special shows and demonstrations. Together with the Fendt distributors BayWa, RWZ Rhein-Main and ZG Raiffeisen Karlsruhe, Fendt presents its entire specialty tractor range on 400 square metres in Hall 1. The main focus is on the tractors from the Fendt 200 Vario V/F/P range, which unite the highest driving comfort with optimum efficiency. With their stepless Vario transmission, they enjoy a very high acceptance amongst professional customers, who produce wine, fruit, hops and all other specialty crops.
Visiting the Fendt stand is worth it
Fendt 200 Vario V/F/P specialty tractors far ahead technologically
The specialty tractors from the Fendt 200 Vario V/F/P series are regarded as technologically leading in this segment. The unique Fendt Vario transmission enables safe and stepless driving, acceleration and starting off on slopes. The travel speed and engine speed are always controlled independently, which permits perfect adjustment, working speed and working quality at all times. The front axle suspension enables high ride comfort and better implement guidance. The workplace on the 200 Vario provides ride and operating comfort on par with larger Vario tractors: spacious comfort cab, flat cab floor, multifunction joystick control, numerous settings and automated functions, cruise control, TMS and PTO automatic. The high-capacity hydraulics on the 200 Vario is designed for very demanding implement combinations. Two separate hydraulic circuits, with a delivery capacity of up to 106 litres per minute with flow summation and up to 6 control valves with max. 10 connections are possible. And the unrivalled swinging power lift with hydraulic lateral and tilt adjustment ensures high working quality in specialty crops.
Fendt is the top leader in the specialty tractor segment.
Since the introduction of the Fendt specialty tractors with Vario technology at the Intervitis 2010, a total of 12,000 tractors from the Fendt 200 Vario V/F/P series have been delivered to customers. “Fendt has a long tradition in specialty tractors,” emphasises Peter-Josef Paffen, Chairman of the AGCO/Fendt Management Board. “Wine, fruit and hops farmers, in particular, are important customers for us, because they often must manage their machines in difficult terrain, for example, on steep slopes up to 50 percent. Here Vario technology is clearly superior to conventional drive concepts.” Fendt has been the market leader in Germany for specialty tractors by a large margin for many decades. With the introduction of the Fendt Vario technology, the market position has even improved to a nearly 50 percent market share in the last years. The number of units sold and market shares have also improved continually for Fendt in the wine and fruit-growing regions in Italy, France, Spain/Portugal and Central Europe. In general, the specialty tractor market in Europe is very robust and stable in comparison to the overall market.
