"INDEPENDENT tests carried out by the German Agricultural Society (DLG) and trade journals suggest that Fendt Vario tractors are class leaders when it comes to fuel economy.
Over the past nine months, Tier III tractors from different brands underwent thorough testing.
The Fendt Vario 312, 415, 820 and 936, were each determined from the research to be the best and most economical tractors in their class.
In order to satisfy current emissions regulations, Fendt says that it chose not to take the easy path and only re-circulate the exhaust internally.
Instead, exhaust gases are re-circulated externally.
This, says the firm, helps to keep fuel consumption down.
Another factor that makes Vario tractors more efficient, says Fendt, is that the engine can always be driven in the most economical range.
Tests in mixed operations suggest that up to 6pc of working time and 8pc in fuel can be saved over the course of a year with infinitely variable speed adjustment.
Fendt contends that fuel is the single biggest cost factor over the entire service life of a tractor, accounting for up to 60% of spending."
