Ziegler Ag Equipment now represents the Fendt tractor line in 23 of its 27 locations. The dealership in August unveiled the new tractor line and other machinery products it sells and services at Altoona, its central Iowa dealership.
Fendt, a brand of Agco, is known globally for industry-leading technology, manufacturing and world-class German engineering. It has a strong reputation for performance and reliability. The Fendt tractor line ranges from 125 to 500 hp.
In the compact tractor market, Ziegler now sells and services the Massey Ferguson Compact Utility Equipment (CUE) line at 18 different locations. The tractor line runs from 22 to 140 hp. Massey Ferguson is also an Agco brand. Adding the Fendt and Massey Ferguson lines allows Ziegler to offer a wide range of tractors at virtually all horsepower levels. Ziegler also sells and services the new Fendt Ideal combine, providing a total equipment and technology solution from Agco.
In addition to the new tractor lines, Ziegler now sells and services Brandt grain-handling products. This includes grain carts, augers, belts, baggers and grain vacuums. By adding the Fendt, Massey Ferguson and Brandt lines, Ziegler can better serve new and existing customer needs, says Andrew Sunderman, Agco North American product manager.

Puck celebrates 40th anniversary
Puck Enterprises recently celebrated its 40th anniversary with an open house for customers and the public at its Manning, Iowa, headquarters. The two-day event featured product demonstrations, new product unveilings, facility tours and more. The company has been at the forefront of creating innovative manure and fertilizer handling products since 1979.
Puck’s line of liquid application and pump products were exhibited. Creating the most buzz was the new TTR-30 hose cart, Boom Truck 5470 trailer and Torsion Flex pull-type toolbar applicator. Also, Puck announced a partnership with Iowa-based Bauer Built Manufacturing to produce a new fertilizer spreader and side dump trailer for dry manure application.
The facility tours provided a look at how Puck Enterprises has grown from humble beginnings at the Puck family’s farm to now operating three U.S. locations and one internationally.
“All of us thank our customers and the community,” says Jeremy Puck, general manager. “We are using that momentum, and the innovation and spirit of our employees, to help propel us into the future.”
The TTR-30 is a special turntable reel that can hold a mile and a half of 10-inch hose or 3 miles of 8-inch hose, allowing liquid transfer operations to increase their efficiency and capacity.
For application, Puck’s new torsion flex pull-type toolbar features an easy bolt-on shank that can handle heavier application needs. Providing a big leap in liquid transfer capabilities is the Boom Truck 5470, with its ability to swivel the entire pump and boom for added pumping flexibility.
