Fendt has a history of tractor innovation and pushing the boundaries of conventional tractor design. Before it became part of the AGCO Group, the company developed different tractors such as the Fendt Toolcarrier and Xylon.

Its Vario transmission was also developed before AGCO acquired it and is now a feature of all Fendt tractors produced. In recent years, the drive to meet ever-tighter emissions regulations has soaked up huge chunks of manufacturers’ development budgets. To that end, a new tractor launch, regardless of brand, often involves an upgrade to its emission control system, a model number change and some cosmetic tweaking.
