2018 Dealer Satisfaction Barometer – German dealers trust in Fendt

Quelle: LandBauTechnik e.V.

Farmers and contractors must be happy with their machines. And agricultural equipment dealers must work well with their manufacturers. It's the only way customers can get the best supplies and support. The German association, LandBauTechnik e.V., has carried out its annual opinion survey of German specialist businesses, and one thing is for certain – German Fendt dealers have complete confidence in their brand.

Environment and sustainability – technology

Hydraulic fan drive and Visctronic

Fendt uses a smart cooling management system to manage different waste heat. Coolers for water, charge air, transmission oil and fuel form a highly efficient cooling package for an effective and powerful tractor. A powerful water pump cools the engine with precision while an additional fuel cooler makes effective use of the diesel-bound energy.

With Visctronic, each cooler can control its own fans, which is a much more efficient system compared to most where the engine cooler controls everything. What is more, there is no need to store cooling reserves, which in turn has a positive effect on fuel consumption.

Economy PTO

The economy PTOs 540 E and 1000 E allow for slower engine speeds with optimum power transmission during lighter PTO work. This means the PTO can reach its nominal speed even at a relatively low engine speed, saving you on fuel.

Low-speed concept

Thanks to their low-speed concept, Fendt tractors are again noted for their efficiency and eco-friendliness. The technology in today's engines means we significantly reduce their nominal speed even during heavy-duty work. This not only further improves fuel efficiency, but also provides for a pleasantly low noise level.

VarioGrip

Fendt offers the first integrated tyre pressure control system VarioGrip, which also allows the air pressure to be adjusted while driving. The advantages of adaptable tyre pressure are that by lowering the tyre pressure you create a greater contact area between the tyre and the ground, which improves traction and reduces the risk of rolling and wheel slip. This not only saves on fuel and reduces CO2 emissions, but lessens the ground pressure, protecting the soil and minimising tyre wear on the road.

Slip control

To avoid excessive slippage and to make best use of the tractor's pulling power, Fendt tractors are equipped with a slip control feature. An electronically controlled rear linkage keeps wheel slip to a respectable low. This results in higher effective driving speeds and lower fuel consumption. Optimum power transmission also reduces soil compaction without any unnecessary impact on the top layer.

Compact design

Fendt sets itself extremely high standards in terms of efficiency and environmental protection. As such, we rely on lightweight machines with a good weight-power ratio but they must also be able to take on the right ballast systems just when more power is needed. Lightweight constructions call for less material and fuel consumption and reduce CO2 emissions.

Separate oil supply for hydraulics and transmission

Having separate oil tanks for the gearbox and the hydraulics safeguards the quality of the oil. By separating the oil supplies, the hydraulics circuit is ideal for use with bio-hydraulic oil, for example. Fendt tractors are impressive in the long intervals required for transmission oil changes – an advantage that benefits not only the farmer, but also the environment.

SCR technology

SCR technology is noted on the market as an eco-friendly solution. This system injects AdBlue or urea in the exhaust pipe system, which reduces the nitrogen oxides to a minimum. It is a solution that makes the Fendt Vario work highly efficiently and in a safe way for the environment.

Vario transmission

A Vario transmission helps the driver work at the optimal speed, every time, making considerable savings at the same time. Whatever the type of work, by increasing their area coverage farmers can cut fuel use by 10% and help protect the environment. A highly durable, robust gearbox, and optimal power transmission underline the sustainability and eco-friendliness of Fendt tractors.

Engine/transmission control

The Tractor Management System (TMS) regulates the engine speed and gear ratio according to the selected speed, so that the tractor always runs at its most economical. This efficiency can reduce overall fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

VarioGuide, SectionControl, VariableRateControl (VRC)

VarioGuide: Fendt's VarioGuide automated steering system prevents missed spots and overlaps so that the driver can increase area coverage. The resulting saving on fuel increases efficiency, promotes the saving of resources, reduces CO2 emissions and consequently protects the environment.
SectionControl: The automatic SectionControl for ISOBUS implements is a targeted and economical way to manage resources. Even before the unwanted overlaps happen, SectionControl activates/deactivates section widths at the headland and field boundary. When working with field sprayers, muck spreaders, single grain seed drills and drilling machines, with SectionControl you can enjoy potential resource savings of up to 17%. The targeted use of spray products and fertilisers will also lessen the impact on the environment.
VariableRateControl (VRC): The more varied the field's conditions, the more efficiently Fendt VRCs use seed products and other resources. This section-specific management system applies plant protection, fertilisers and seeds just as required. VRC avoids over-fertilising certain areas and unnecessary impact on the environment, while saving you on resources.
