Fendt introduces specialty crops tractor

With wheel widths as narrow as 44 inches (39 inches available by special order), versatility is the hallmark of the Fendt 200 Series tractors just introduced to North America by AGCO Corporation.

The powerful, new generation Fendt 200 Series is specifically designed for labor intensive orchard, vineyard, hop and other high value crops. Front, mid and rear-mount options, flexible hydraulic outlet positioning and an award winning 3-point hitch system make multi-tasking with advanced implements easy.

Growers can match their particular needs to one of four models in the 60 to 90 engine horsepower range, choosing from very narrow to wide configurations, 2 or 4-wheel drive and cab or ROPS designs.

New Tier II, high capacity, Deutz 914 air-cooled, in-line diesel engines produce 15 percent more torque while using 5 percent less fuel. Buyers can choose from the 198 cubic inch (3.2 L) 3-cylinder in the Fendt 206 (50 PTO hp) and 207 (60 PTO hp) tractors or the 262 cubic inch (4.3 L) 4-cylinder in the FENDT 208 (70 PTO hp) and 209 (80 PTO hp) tractors.

Transmission options include the standard 19F/6R synchromesh, 19F/19R shuttle and the 19F/6R synchromesh with an additional 9F/3R creeper gears offering speeds as low as 0.18 mph on the 200V models. The Fendt 208P and 209P tractors feature two additional speeds and a top speed of up to 25 mph (40 kph).

The Fendt 200 Series also features an all new 19.5 gpm hydraulics system including engineering-award-winning 3-point hitch technology. Shock load stabilizing reduces equipment wear and tear by using hydraulics to actively control rear implement bounce and keep front wheels on the ground.

The right-hand console hosts the hydraulic center with electro hydraulic control of up to six spool valves, the Electronic Powerlift Control (EPC) and the swinging, rear, 3-point hitch controls. A single lever operates any two hydraulic valves, essential for proportional control such as lifting and leveling a bucket loader. Also located on the console are controls for the front and rear PTO, 3-point hitch and four-wheel drive activation. Three circuits, the EPC and the swinging rear 3-point hitch can all be operated independently and simultaneously, each under constant oil flow for up to four multi-tasking operations.

One side can even be higher or lower than the other. It is awesome for doing blade or tillage work on hillsides. If the tool swings down hill, you can adjust it mechanically or with the push of a button.”

The Fendt 200 Series features an air-conditioned cab with a roof window for improved overhead visibility.
