Profitability is when your Fendt Katana even cuts down the costs per hectare

Non-stop efficiency

Compare the key data of the new Fendt Katana forage harvester and you will see: the ratio between investment and running costs, power and fuel consumption, precision and ruggedness is right. Powerful, efficient and smooth-running engines with Eco/Power mode drive the Fendt Katana 65 and 85 and comply with emissions stage Tier 4 final. In Eco mode, the engines run at 1520 rpm for a lower power requirement and reduced fuel consumption. In Power mode, the engines run with 1900 rpm for maximum power and output. In both modes, the speed of the chopping assemblies remains the same. The gearbox takes care of that: different speed input (Eco and Power), but the same output for the main belt and therefore the chopping assemblies. In addition to a low fuel requirement, wear is also low. Components were designed to be durable and tremendously ruggedly to keep the Fendt Katana constantly operational. Just what is needed during the harvesting season.

Economically economical

Beyond the claim for the highest chop quality, the Fendt Katana forage harvester has another decisive goal: overall profitability. We back up this claim by offering top-drawer advice, and through the use of ground-breaking technologies. The combination of largely dimensioned chopping assemblies and the innovative V-Cracker enables a high output. Highly efficient hydraulic drive technology and fuel saving SCR technology together with the Eco/Power modes and the automatic maximum output control, lower your costs per hectare and tonne. And cuts down unnecessary costs.

Powerful savings: If full power is required, the Fendt Katana can deliver the power required for the operating conditions. The hydrostatic drive on the Fendt Katana, together with the innovative engine technology and electronics, guarantees highly efficient operations. The front axle is driven by independent wheel motors with integral brakes. This space-saving design creates space for the all-important largesized chopping units. Thanks to the hydrostatic drive, the speed of the header can be regulated independently and can be optimally adjusted to the prevailing conditions. The cutterhead, the V-Cracker and the discharge blower are driven by a belt drive.

Switching between Eco mode and Power mode takes place through a two-speed gearshift assembly in the angular gearbox. During light operations in grassland, the engine operates at a low speed in Eco mode. The speed of the chopping units, however, is still maintained at the required speed in the optimum range.

Future-proof & economical engines

Whether the new powerful R6-MTU engine in the Katana 65 or the MTU 12-cylinder V-engine in the Katana 85, the engines in the Fendt forage harvester bring a whole host of economical and practical benefits. Despite their compact design, they unfold sufficient power at all times and ensure maximum fuel-efficiency. Furthermore, they have an especially low maintenance requirement, good accessibility, are smooth-running and already comply with emissions stage Tier 4 final today. The Fendt Katana 85 can go for 1000 hours without an oil change and does not need AdBlue or a particulate filter.

Always the right speed

With the maximum load control, the road speed is automatically adjusted to the respective harvesting and crop conditions. Engine power is optimally utilised to achieve maximum output and to make the operator’s work easier. Machine utilisation is clearly displayed in the Varioterminal.

The variable fan on the Katana 85 draws in no more air than is needed. This releases or saves reserve capacity according to the application and the Katana power requirements, which significantly increased the machine’s overall efficiency. Thanks to the fan’s reverse function, dirt is pushed away from the radiator at adjustable intervals by changing the air flow. The radiator therefore always performs at it’s full cooling capacity and the cleaning intervals become longer.

Economical ECO mode

During grassland operations where less power is normally required under normal conditions, the strengths of the Eco drive mode come into full play. With the two-speed angular gearbox, operators can switch between Eco and Power modes according to need and save precious fuel. This is accomplished by reducing the speed of the engine from 1900 to 1520 rpm. The speed of the chopping units remains constant.

Modular & lightweight: the new tank concept

The new tanks on the Fendt Katana forage harvester not only have a high capacity – their modular and rugged plastic construction also spares a considerable amount of weight. Choose between 1225 l diesel tank with 205 l AdBlue tank or 1010 l diesel, 205 l AdBlue and 215 l water or additive tank in the Katana 65 Or decide for the Katana 85 with alternately 1430 l diesel tank or 1215 l diesel and 215 l water or additive tank. Either way you profit from the comfort of the new tank concept: the filler necks for diesel and AdBlue are located on the left side where they are easily reached.

Awesome power on any kind of ground.

4WD standard

Intelligent and as standard: 4WD of Fendt Katana forage harvester with anti-slip control for the single wheel engines of the front axle. The differential gearbox for the suspended rear axle is driven by a hydraulic motor, where an automatic differential lock ensures the best traction when the difference in speed is too high. An HD ground drive with strong motors on the front and rear axles is available as an option for the Katana 65 for more power, torque and traction. The HD ground drive is integrated in the Katana 85 as a standard specification. The result: excellent ride comfort in any terrain.

The rear axle has suspension to absorb shock loads in the field and on the road. That protects both the operator and the machine. Furthermore, the suspension enables better ground contact for the Fendt Katana and boosts pulling power. Together with the permanent, standard specification four-wheel drive, this means optimal propulsion.

4:1 for VarioActive

Like everything in the new Fendt Katana forage harvesters, the superimposed steering system is trimmed for maximum performance. When driving on the road, four turns of the steering wheel are required for a full steering lock, at the headland with VarioActive, it only requires one turn. The result: precise steering, steady driving and extreme manoeuvrability.

Top manoeuvrability

The rear axle of the Fendt Katana has an excellent steering angle. Together with the compact design of the machine, this enables very high manoeuvrability. Manoeuvring is fast and easy in every situation. The design with the longitudinally mounted engine means that you can profit from an excellent steering angle.

Huge selection of tyres, first-class suspension

To protect the operator and machine from shock loads when driving in uneven terrain, the Fendt Katana forage harvesters have a height adjustable rear axle suspension. In addition to the best comfort, it guarantees additional safety and stability even at 40 km/h. Together with the new, expanded tyre selection, the Katana becomes a universal talent on any ground. Extra large tyres with diameters of up to 206 cm and width up to 900 mm lower the pressure on the ground and increase ground clearance.
