At a Glance: The Fendt ® Momentum ® 30-Foot Planter

  • The new 30-foot Fendt Momentum planter brings its agronomically advanced planting system to a whole new range of smaller operations .
  • The Momentum planter is now offered in 30- to 60-foot machines with liquid and dry fertilizer systems , and in 12- and 23-row configurations with 30- and 15-inch spacing, respectively.
  • AGCO’s exclusive SmartFrame™ technology puts each row unit in the best possible position for row cleaning, downforce, furrow creation, seed placement and closing.
  • The Vertical Contouring Toolbar (VCT) and its independent floating toolbars follow the topography of your terrain for 52" of vertical planting range .
  • Load Logic™ weight management minimizes soil compaction , and wide in-line tandem wheels eliminate pinch rows .
  • Momentum provides high capacity for seed, liquid fertilizer and dry fertilizer, while its compaction management ensures these large capacities do not negatively impact yields .

AGCO Corporation (NYSE:AGCO), a global leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of agricultural machinery and precision ag technology, announced today the introduction of a new 30-foot model for its Fendt ® Momentum ® planter line, making its agronomically-advanced capabilities available to a wider range of farming operations.

With the addition of the 30-foot model, Fendt’s AE50 award-winning Momentum planter is now offered in 30- to 60-foot machines with liquid and dry fertilizer systems, and in 12- and 23-row configurations with 30- and 15-inch spacing, respectively.

“We’ve worked hard to expand our product lineup here in North America, and we’re excited to bring greater flexibility to farmers with the Momentum planter line,” said Arthur Santos, marketing manager for Fendt planters at AGCO. “This addition allows family-owned farms and smaller operations to experience the best in agronomic planting, increasing their yields and improving their bottom lines.”

Introduced to North America in 2020, Fendt’s Momentum planter set a new standard for seed placement. It was designed from the ground up to provide optimal seed depth and spacing, regardless of variations in soil moisture or type, residue levels, terrain or operating speed. With its innovative Vertical Contouring Toolbar, Momentum can follow the topography of your terrain, providing 52 inches of vertical planting range. Its exclusive SmartFrame ™ technology puts each row unit in the best possible position for row cleaning, downforce, furrow creation, seed placement and closing.

The all-new 30-foot Fendt Momentum planter also provides high capacity for seed and fertilizer, allowing farmers to plant more quickly without requiring frequent machine reloading. It carries 100 bushels of seed and can handle up to 800 gallons of liquid fertilizer with its newly designed tank, which will be unveiled in 2024.

To eliminate pinch rows, Momentum leverages an in-line tandem wheel design and Very-High Flexion (VF) tires, which provide the flotation advantage of tracks with the high road speed of tires. It can also be equipped with Fendt’s central tire inflation system, which automatically adjusts tire pressure to reduce compaction.

The Momentum planter is designed by a global engineering team and manufactured in Beloit, Kansas. It’s covered by Fendt’s Gold Star Customer Care Program, which includes a full three-year warranty with no deductible and annual postseason inspections.
