LoadLogic weight management system

Weight distribution strategies

The LoadLogic weight management option also includes a hydraulic weight distribution system. This includes 3 weight management modes: Load Balance, weight centralised over the tandem chassis, and floating position. Load Balance mode evenly distributes the load of the machine across all contact points. Weight centralising mode takes the load off the outer support wheels and the entire weight is carried by the tandem chassis. It also makes sure there is enough support pressure so the in-line ballast weights do not lift up the wings. In floating position mode, the active hydraulic wing ballast is switched off.

Tyre inflation system

The tyre inflation system is part of the LoadLogic weight management system. Various sensors help automatically adjust the tyre pressure.

Fendt MOMENTUM – fast, precise, powerful.

In the right place at the right time

This is especially true for the seed. We've all asked ourselves, "When's the best time to plant which fields? Is it better to plant early or is it wiser to wait?" Even a couple of days can make the difference to the results of the harvest. Planting too early can lead to losses if the conditions are cold and damp. Planting too late reduces yield as you're not making the most of the potential growth time. The weather is often very unpredictable in the planting season. Rain can delay work by several days. Only powerful technology can maximise on short planting windows.

Not too shallow, not too deep

Losses due to incorrect planting depth are not uncommon. When you drive faster, you need to adjust the tillage disc downforce to avoid reducing the drop depth when the row unit floats. Studies show that if the seed is not planted at the right depth with the right soil moisture, this has a direct influence on the yield.

Accurate results with high-precision technology.

    Application knife

    The Conceal fertiliser application system is equipped with a single-sided application knife. The application knife is located between the depth control wheel and the double disc coulter. The application point is 7.5 cm beside the furrow at a depth of 2 to 4 cm. As Conceal works directly next to the seed furrow, the application is perfectly placed next to the seed furrow, regardless of the terrain and cornering. A maximum of 270 l/ha can be applied.

Details that make all the difference.

Row unit

The row unit consists of the metering unit, seed tube, gauge wheels, residue manager, tillage disc and other components. With this modular system, you can select the parts to give you the right solution whatever the conditions.

Hydraulic DeltaForce

Creates a specific downforce for each row for the right standing pressure for different soil types and planting conditions.

vDrive

The row units are electrically driven. The vDrive is marked by its outstanding reliability and precision.

Every row counts!

Curve compensation

Reduces yield losses due to emergence variations in undulating rows and headlands. Conventional technology below; Fendt MOMENTUM with curve compensation above.

Test results

The picture below shows the influence of contours on the ear size when maize planting. Without curve compensation, the inner and outer rows show losses.

Tillage discs

Soil types vary widely depending on the region. Various tillage discs are available to suit.

Pressure rollers

Choose a V-shaped rubber pressure roller or a V-shaped steel pressure roller.

20I20 and ISOBUS – precise, smart and simple.

Smart Farming

ISOBUS

All the general functions – including the LoadLogic weight management system, tyre inflation system, fan control, machine folding/unfolding system and the toolbar lift/lower mechanism – are operated via ISOBUS. You can monitor the level of the seed and fertiliser tank on the ISOBUS screen.

20I20: Everything in sight

The 20I20 terminal provides the driver with the best possible overview of the current singulation accuracy, vacuum, coulter downforce, planting depth, seed placement, population and liquid fertilisation. If there are any errors, the system helps with troubleshooting. You can set specific alarms and warning parameters so you are notified if thresholds are not met.

Reducing Compaction

Fendt Momentum Planter - Reducing Compaction

Shallow compaction (0-6 inches deep) directly in the root zone is the most detrimental to yield. Visual symptoms like stunted plant height is often a key indicator that soil compaction is present. Just how much does soil compaction at the time of planting impact your yield potential? Experts estimate that average yield loss from compaction ranges from 10-20%, but can range as high as 60% in extreme situations.


Can you afford to give up a minimum of 10% in yield potential to compaction? Even if you could afford to, why would you want to?

The Fendt Momentum planter equipped with Load Logic provides you with a solution to the compaction issues that are otherwise created in non-optimal conditions.
Fendt Momentum’s “Load Logic” system, automatically transfers weight off the row units of the planter by lifting and adjusting the planter frame to minimize row unit downforce. The system has two automatic modes of operation, Load Balance, which distributes weight across the entire frame, or Controlled Traffic, which shifts compaction pressure to follow tractor path.

Weight Management

Weight transfer cylinders located on both wings, in concert with the weight management system, push and pull the left and right wings to complement the smart spindles

The Fendt Momentum planter also integrates all of the latest Precision Planting technology from the factory, including DeltaForce, auto-downforce system, which provides automatic, individual row unit down pressure to ensure only the right amount of down force is applied per row unit to plant at desired planting depths.

Momentum’s exclusive “Smart Spindle” technology monitors weight distribution across all tires on the planter, and is automatically adjusting tire pressures while operating in the field. By utilizing the latest “VF” tire technology, all tires are reduced to very low PSI levels, increasing the gross flat plate area and reducing compaction.

Smart Spindles automatically adjust the pressures and control all planter tire pressure from the console of the cab, reducing compaction, improving ride quality, and increasing tire longevity.

Not only are these automatic weight distribution adjustments to the planter frame and tire pressures assisting in reducing compaction, but so too is the tire configuration. The planter features in line center tandem wheels, which follow the affected row path already created by the tractor tires, thereby controlling traffic through the field and limiting compaction. This design, along with its front of frame mounted tire configuration, completely eliminates pinch rows, whereas conventional row unit planters have upwards of 6 compaction affected pinch rows.

In-line tandems not only eliminate pinch rows, but the patent-pending transport carriage system is also an integral part of Momentum's weight management and inflation systems.

Increased Accuracy

Monitor all planter functions and individual row unit performance in real time with the 20/20 Gen3 SeedSense® monitor system, which comes standard on all Fendt Momentum planters. , 20/20 SeedSense tells you what you need to know about population, skips, doubles, speed, row unit ride, down force and ground contact. It enables you to seed precisely, maintain depth, avoid compaction and troubleshoot mechanical problems.

The Precision equipped row units intelligently places seed according to your desired population while compensating for turns and overlaps. vSet2/vDrive meters are standard on the Fendt Momentum series and unsurpassed in accuracy, simplicity and durability.

DeltaForce is the standard downforce offering on all Fendt Momentum planters. This system provides independent down pressure control of each row unit based on sensors measuring the correct down pressure needed. DeltaForce responds to the soil conditions multiple times a second in order to maintain planting depth without compacting the soil around the seed. This fast response is crucial in order to have every seed in the correct environment, whether planting at high speeds or at a more traditional speed. The ability to set, monitor, react and record down pressure gives you the precise control to aid uniform emergence across the field.

Increased Capacity

Twin, 65-bu. seed tanks – 130 bu. total capacity 1,000 gallon liquid fertilizer (optional)

The Fendt Momentum planter is the first planter in the industry that was co-designed with our partners at Precision Planting™.​ Momentum offers the latest innovations from Precision Planting, integrated right from the factory.​

More capacity means less stopping, but managing that extra weight is key. Momentum not only adds capacity but also limits its negative effects through its in-line center tandem wheel design and its LoadLogic weight management system.

As planters have become more complex, they’ve required more complexity from the tractor, limiting the amount of value and technologies farmers could access from their planter. Momentum solves this issue with the Power Beyond system. Multiple frame and fan functions are powered by the Power Beyond hydraulics of Momentum, greatly reducing the number of hydraulic remotes required.
