““For a leading global agricultural equipment manufacturer and the premium brand Fendt it is a must to offer all key machines in the product portfolio. With the Fendt Katana 65, we have taken the last big step towards becoming a full-liner,” said Peter-Josef Paffen, Vice President & Managing Director, Fendt.
“For these reasons, the AGCO decided to develop a forage harvester a few years ago and is employing the development expertise of the Marktoberdorf location for this completely new development. The newly formed forage harvester team used the existing development expertise from the tractor division at Fendt intensively. The experienced engineers in the forage harvester development team received support from the professionals in tractor development, for the hydraulics, electronics, engine and cab. This led to new ideas and enabled completely new approaches in the development of the Fendt Katana 65 forage harvester. The name Katana, which our engineers have chosen for the new product, signifies how high the aims for this development are. A katana is a Japanese samurai sword and stands for high performance, sharpness and precision.” View the whole press release at this source: Press | Press releases – AGCO GmbH
