2018 Dealer Satisfaction Barometer – German dealers trust in Fendt
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
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.

VarioGuide, SectionControl, VariableRateControl (VRC)
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.
