"Fendt machines enable farmers worldwide to do their work more efficiently and sustainably, and the focus must always be on the benefits for the customer. Due to the successful growth strategy, the requirements of North American farmers also determine our work," says Walter Wagner, Managing Director for Research and Development AGCO/Fendt. "The main task of the engineers in the Research and Development department is to find good solutions for these different requirements."

The self-propelled sprayer for application and fertilization has been designed for use on large areas worldwide. For the first time, the chassis of the self-propelled harvester can be raised to a height of up to 1.93 meters (76 inches) and can thus also be used in late growth phases. The body of the machine allows a quick change between different bodies for application and fertilization. With an external width of 3.91 to 4.49 meters (12.8 – 14.7 feet), the self-propelled machine is suitable for use on large areas in North and South America, Australia, as well as in Eastern Europe.
