Fendt will showcase its new Tigo 65 VR, the company’s recently launched forage wagon. The Tigo VR series comprises two models, the Tigo 65 VR (38 m³) and the Tigo 75 VR (44 m³). The new range slots in between the existing XR and PR ranges.
The main difference with the two VR models is they automatically control throughput via tractor implement management. This means the wagon regulates the tractor’s forward speed, depending on pickup load and speed.
The 2m swinging pickup comes with seven rows of tines. Fendt says chop length is 37mm, thanks to the 40-knife chopping unit. The wagons come with the option of the FlexSharp knife self-sharpener. The Tigo VR models feature the VarioFill headboard as seen on the PR and XR models.
Bringing a range of tractors, Fendt will be exhibiting its new control setup which has been labelled the ‘FendtOne’ concept. Fendt has swapped the conventional dash for a fresh-looking 10in monitor. The new larger digital display simplifies the dashboard, while showing the same details.
Meanwhile, Fendt designed its new touchscreen terminal to work like a modern touchscreen phone, with the operator now able to swipe through the screen.
The manufacturer also introduced a smaller, more-modern joystick, with all functions closer to the operator’s thumb. Despite the change of shape, the fundamentals remain the same.
