Fendt’s 200 series tractors bound for North America, eventually

During a global online press conference last October, AGCO’s Fendt brand introduced a second-generation 200 series line of tractors. The original 200 series has been available in Europe for more than a little while and accounts for about 20 per cent of the brand’s Marktoberdorf assembly plant’s output, but it’s now been given a rethink and a technology upgrade.

The 200 series includes speciality models, such as vineyard tractors, but the 200 Vario series offers five general purpose machines in the 79- to 124-horsepower range. The tractors are now compatible with the new FendtOne operator interface and are designed with features that should appeal to livestock producers looking for a digitally-capable, sophisticated tractor.

The brand intends to eventually bring the 200 series to North America, although the timeline for that is still unclear.

“The serious launch is in January with a ramp-up curve in Europe,” said Roland Schmidt, vice-president Fendt marketing EME (Europe and Middle East). We are going to push the business in Europe and also include the other continents.”
