The Fendt Company history & backgrounds
The Fendt brothers, under the supervision of their father Johann, started building tractors from their blacksmith shop in the late 1920’s, delivering the first small sized tractors in the1930’s. The tractor had features including a mounted plough and a separately driven mower, all powered by an engine with six horse power. Small farmers that were accustomed to using horses could now afford to mechanize their operations with a tractor.
Fendt is a German company that was incorporated in December 1937 and has moved on to become an extensive manufacturer of agricultural equipment globally. The firm is now a part of the AGCO group, marketing a range of forage and combine harvesters, tractors and square and round balers.
Different types of farm equipment from Fendt
Farm Tractors from Fendt
Fendt first developed the CVT (continuously variable transmission) in the 1970’s but due to lack of funding it actually went into production only in 1996. The CVT was named Vario and the Fendt 926 Vario was the first step-less transmission to be installed in a tractor, unrivalled by its competitors. The Vario has a top speed of 60 km/h (38 mph) among AGCO products while the JCB Fastrac is with 80 km/h the fastest tractor on the market. The Fendt tractor is regarded as the ‘Rolls Royce’ of tractors and has been featured on many TV shows including Top Gear. Find out many ads of farm tractors by Fendt on Agriaffaires.
