The readers of the agricultural trade magazines “Schweizer Bauer”, “Schweizer Landtechnik” and “Terre&Nature” have voted the Fendt 828 Vario “Tractor of the Year”.
The 260-hp tractor (Category 3, 126 hp and up) received nine percent of the votes, which was the best result. The 110-hp 312 Vario, also a tractor from Fendt, took second place. “We are very pleased with this result,” said Werner Müller, GVS Agrar AG Sales Manager for Fendt Tractors, at the awards ceremony in Schaffhausen. The fact that Fendt took both first and second place confirms the excellent image that the tractor brand has with farmers. There is also great interest in the 828 Vario in Switzerland. “Last year, the 828 was presented to the public for the first time, in September the tractor went into production in the Fendt works in Marktoberdorf, and in the spring the first models were already delivered to customers,” explains Müller.
Altogether 49 standard tractors in three horsepower categories, 8 mountain tractors, 13 yard loaders and 12 telescopic loaders were included in the competition for the Tractor of the Year, which took place shortly before the Agrama last November.
