The prestigious Fend brand is coming in strength to EIMA International to exhibit in their area the finest examples of the ranges. Among those leading off is the Ideal, a combine equipped with helix-shaped rollers fingers created with the close collaboration of AGCO specialization center. Two rotors with length of 4.84 meters ensure excellent grain and straw quality. The Fendt Ideal in available in three models named the 7, 8 and 9 according to the categories. The 7 single rotor machine is powered by the AGCO 451 Hp engine. The 8 and 9 two rotor combines mount the MAN 538 and 647 Hp engines respectively. All three models come in versions self-levelling, wheeled, tracked or PL with lateral levelling. Among the unique features of the IDEAL is the IDEAL balance dual-shaped grain pan for returning the contour for distributing the grain over the entire surface of the preparation floor for optitizing cleaning. Another strong point is undoubtedly is the Streamer 210 grain tank with the largest capacity in the category at a volume of 17,000 liters and a discharge rate of 210 l/s.

The Fendt Roundbaler with a fixed and variable chamber. The fixed chamber version is equipped with 18 steel rollers at the center of the Rotana 130F able to form bales with diameters of 130 cm. The variable chamber models are the 4160V and 4180V models for bales of 90 cm up to 160/180 cm. All these balers can be configured for the Xtra version equipped with cutting floor - 13, 17 or 25 knives -. Hydroflex system  prevents losses and protects the cutting floor, while CPS system allows you to get a uniform bale density, with the combination of the belts and a mechanical block on the lower drive roller. To mention in this market category is the Rotana 160V which combines variable chamber and round baler with belt units.

The Fendt 900 Vario MT is  unlike other tracked tractors and different from standard tractors with desiging and build as a pure tracked machine. These tractors have a higher profile and a more pronunced design for features for operations in difficult conditions. The Fendt 900 Vario MTs are ideal for heavy duty work. The innovative Mobile Trac System provides great traction while applying lower pressure on the soil to lower compaction due to an excellent distribution of weight in all areas worked. For maintaining performance on level terrain there is nominal basic speed of the FendtID engine running at 1700 RPM and the Concentric Air System for cooling.

Fendt 200 Vario V/F/Ps are specialist tractors with fuel consumption lowered to the minimum, first class hydraulics and a reliable stepless Vario transmission. The Vario 200s are built on a narrow V wheelbase with outside width of 1.07 m, ideal for operations in vineyards and orchards. Coming as optional is a larger rear axle for increasing stability. The Fendt 200 F Vario has an outside width of 1.32 m providing greater comfort for the driver in a cab 10 cm wider. The Fendt P Vario is equipped with larger axles and greater lift capacity due to outside width at 1.68 m.

The TIGO XR and PR are Fendt automatic loading compact forage wagons with a generous capacity of 6 m³ which can be added to the load with a multifunction front VarioFill frontal panel system which automatically compacts each m³ load and assists in the discharge operation.
