Fendt telehandler debuts at FTMTA

  • Fendt has chosen to debut its innovative Cargo T740 telehandler with its elevating cab design at this years’ FTMTA event
  • The telehandler will be part of a packed Fendt stand that will also include the new 728 Gen 7 tractor and Tigo forage wagon

“FTMTA is an important event in the agricultural calendar and we wanted to bring a cross section of Fendt machinery that reflects the needs of farmers in Ireland. We therefore have a focus on tractors in the 100-200 horsepower sector that can be specified with loaders, whilst also showing the future with the new 728 Gen 7 tractor,” says Fendt’s Richard Miller.

The Fendt 211, 312 and 516 Vario tractors chosen for the stand have all been fitted with Fendt’s Cargo loader to illustrate the benefits of the tractors for grassland system work. The Tigo forage wagon further demonstrates the progress Fendt has made in this sector.

“The Tigo is a popular product in Ireland because the range offers capacities of 22 to 45 cubic metres in a compact design that is up to 20% shorter than rivals,” he adds.

The Fendt Cargo loader, fitted to the tractors at the event, is also an increasingly attractive option for operators buying lower horsepower Fendt tractors. It makes even the smallest 200 Vario a capable loading machine which can reduce fuel costs and help access to small spaces.

“There will be three tractor and loader combinations on display to demonstrate the versatility of the Fendt range for loading work. The panoramic view from the cab, intuitive joystick controls and weighing functionality all help to make a 200, 300 or 500 tractor a capable and comfortable loading machine,” says Mr Miller.

The current Fendt 724 Gen 6 tractor will feature on the stand with the incoming 728 Gen 7 as a way to illustrate the progress the brand has made in both engine technology and efficiency.

“The Gen 6 has been a tremendously successful tractor throughout Europe, and the new 728 with its AGCO power unit, higher output and greater efficiencies will uphold Fendt’s reputation in the mid horsepower sector. FTMTA will be a unique opportunity to see both and ask our team questions about all the products on show,” he concludes.
