Triple for the Fendt 1000 Vario in the PowerMix Test

Now independently confirmed: Unrivalled pulling power and efficiency. The German Agricultural Company (DLG) and the editorial staff of profi magazine tested three Fendt 1000-series models and determined the fuel consumption on the new DLG PowerMix roller dynamometer. The result: The Fendt 1042 Vario consumes an average total of 236 g/kWh of diesel across the 12 different PowerMix cycles. The Fendt 1046 Vario uses another two grams less than that, at 234 g/kWh. And the top-end model Fendt 1050 Vario only uses 233 g/kwh. That sets three new world records in fuel consumption. The low-rpm concept and a number of new technical detailed solutions offer decisive advantages in terms of fuel consumption and overall economy.
