AGCO Brings Fendt To North America
AGCO introduced the German-built Fendt tractor at the recent California Farm Equipment Show. Two models were shown - the 926 and the 524. The 524, a 125 hp model, won't be available until this fall. For now three models in the 900 series are available including the 926 at 230 pto hp, the 924 at 200 pto hp, and the 920 at 175 pto hp. Ken Garrett, marketing manager, says these are "Cadillac" tractors that feature the world's most advanced transmission and an air ride suspension that allows for a smooth ride at fast road speeds. "These tractors make shifting gears a thing of the past. You can set ground speed anywhere from 0 to 31 mph without ever having to shift gears. The air ride suspension absorbs 60 percent of the shock load on the front axle to provide an extremely smooth ride. The cab is also equipped with a special suspension system." The 926 sells for about $160,000.
