DULUTH, Ga. — AGCO Corporation (NYSE:AGCO), a worldwide manufacturer and distributor of agricultural equipment, will feature four models of its Fendt® high-horsepower tractors at the 2019 World Ag Expo (WAE) in Tulare, California. This is the first time these high performing tractors have been exhibited at WAE. Show attendees will find the Fendt tractors at the AGCO exhibit space Q46 between “Q” and “R” at North Greenbelt. Other products on display include Hesston by Massey Ferguson® hay equipment, a full lineup of Massey Ferguson® tractors, including low-profile and high-clearance models, and the powerful Challenger® track and 4WD tractors.

For more than 90 years, Fendt has combined craftsmanship with engineering to deliver innovative, high-quality, reliable farm equipment designed for in-field efficiency and ease of use. Fendt’s tractor lineup exemplifies this tradition.

“We’re excited to showcase four of our most popular Fendt models,” says Andrew Sunderman, tactical marketing manager North America at AGCO. “Since they were introduced to North America, these tractors have become the leading choice of producers seeking unequalled comfort and productivity for tackling everything from daily livestock chores to planting to deep tillage or moving heavy loads.”

Fendt tractors deliver power and fuel efficiency due to the latest engine technology. They feature comfortable cabs and productivity-boosting options, such as front 3-point hitch, front PTO, self-leveling front axle suspension and the VarioGrip onboard tire pressure inflation system. On exhibit will be the 700 Vario (145 to 240 HP), the 800 Vario (220 to 280 HP), the 900 Vario (270 to 360 HP) and the powerful yet fuel-efficient 1000 Vario (396-517 HP), designed for the heaviest draft work, yet compact, agile and versatile enough for optimum performance on the road.

As a full-line equipment manufacturer, AGCO will showcase many of its other popular and innovative products well-suited for California agriculture.

At any of our six Massey Ferguson GC1700 ride & drive stations, WAE visitors can show off their tractor-driving skills: dig; scoop and move; back it up; pull some real weight; grade a path ‒ and take our Backhoe Challenge!
