1000th 1000-Series

This global AGCO milestone was reached through the sales of the world's most powerful standard tractor, the 1000-series, in 35 countries throughout Europe, North and South America, Africa, Australia and Asia.

After the launch in Fall 2016 of the 1000-series tractors sold under both Fendt and Challenger, AGCO was able to announce the first production milestone for the world’s most powerful standard tractor. On Wednesday, 20 December 2017, much earlier than expected, the 1000th Fendt 1000 Vario rolled off the production line.

The 380 hp Fendt 1038 Vario was ordered through the highly successful Canadian Fendt dealer, Maple Lane Farm Service Inc., in Mount Forest, Ontario, for Jeremy and Herman Terpstra at their dairy farm, Terpstra Farms Ltd, in Brussels, Ontario, Canada.

“We are delighted with the excellent worldwide acceptance of our new 1000 Vario high-power tractor models. At up to 517 hp, they have shaped a new market and are now delivered in a total of 35 countries throughout Europe, North and South America, Africa, Australia and Asia,” says Peter-Josef Paffen, Chairman of the AGCO/Fendt Management Board (left).

The 1000-series was a blank-canvas innovation that filled the previous gap in the 380-517 hp power range for standard tractors. This was the first time a model has been designed to the requirements of professionals in large-scale farming from around the world. It is an international award-winning tractor, including the “Tractor of the Year 2016“, “Machine of the Year 2016” in the XXL Tractor category and the coveted “Public Award”, gold medals and much more.
