DULUTH, Ga, US: AGCO Corporation, a worldwide manufacturer and distributor of agricultural equipment, will bring the fourth generation of Fendt® 300 Vario® tractors to North American producers for delivery in early 2022. The 300 Vario tractors are light yet powerful, offering the features and superior quality of larger Fendt tractors in a range perfect for hay and livestock production, field work and general farm use. Customers will be able to choose from models that all deliver the fuel efficiency, maneuverability and comfort expected from a Fendt, the company has announced recently.
“Soon North American producers who want the excellence of Fendt engineering in an efficient, mid-size tractor will be able to order a Fendt 300 Vario model, configured and equipped with the features that best fit the needs of their operations,” says Tom Turner, strategic marketing manager, AGCO. “We’re excited to begin previewing this tractor to customers now.
“Just like the Fendt 700 Gen6 tractors, the four 300 Vario models will be available with the new FendtONE™ operator station that allows each operator to customise the tractor to their individual preferences for each chore. FendtONE provides the entire suite of Fendt smart farming technology for full connectivity from the tractor to the office.”
Light, agile, productive and efficient
Two characteristics that will set the Fendt 300 Vario tractors apart in the marketplace are their outstanding weight-to-power ratio and agility, traits particularly beneficial for loader work in the tight quarters of livestock operations, inside barns and when feeding livestock. The 300 Vario will include four models, the 311 (100 HP), 312 (113 HP), 313 (123 HP) and the new 314 with 132 HP and up to 142 HP with the Fendt Dynamic Performance (DP) power boost.
Dynamic Performance automatically adds 10 HP when it senses the need ‒ either pulling a load or when stationary, running a PTO-driven implement such as a feed grinder-mixer. Especially notable, the premium Fendt 314 ProfiPlus won AgriTechnica’s Tractor of the Year Best Utility award in both 2019 and 2020.
