 In New Zealand, the highly professional dealer group attending the training included dealer principals, sales staff and technical support staff. All were given the opportunity to evaluate the systems on display in real time with a mix of Valtra, Fendt and Massey Ferguson tractors equipped with AGCO’s technology products.

 Taking an active role in enhancing dealers’ knowledge base, AGCO Australia’s ATS Product Manager, Jeremy Duniam, was pleased with the training that included classroom style learning as well as practical demonstrations of the products.

 “The dealer training was extremely productive and was received very well by all participating. It is always rewarding to see dealer staff remain behind after the day sessions have finished to spend more time getting familiar with the systems. The dealer network in New Zealand is very professional in their approach. Their knowledge of ATS solutions will equip New Zealand farmers with innovative technology solutions, which is the future of farming.” Jeremy said.

 This recent dealer training reflects AGCO’s commitment to and global emphasis on precision ag technology, recently launched as Fuse™ Technologies.

Old Fendt Favorit Still Going Strong in NSW, Australia.

IMG_3355

At regional machinery exhibition with his wife, Darryl Lush took a test drive on a new Fendt 626 Favourit and thought “someday I want to have this Fendt on my farm”. That was some 30 years ago.

Fendt produced only 65 Favorit 626 models, with an estimated six units exported to Australia. Two of these tractors would end up at Darryl’s 2200 hectare property near Gunnedah, northern NSW.

Darryl grows wheat, canola, sorghum and cotton and also operates a small construction business undertaking earthworks mainly in the region, but from time to time has ventured as far as Melbourne. It was this business that first introduced Darryl to Fendt tractors – he has been hooked ever since.

Finding a tractor that was be suitable for his business proved difficult. After approaching several other manufacturers with little success, fortuitously,  a neighbor suggested Darryl take a look at Fendt. A suggestion that had lasting result.

Darryl’s first Fendt was a Favourit 612 LS, which gave him many years of faithful service. His next,was the first of two Favorit 626 LS. The 626 gave him the edge over many of his competitors in construction.

“On large construction sites I would have some friendly competition with other operators, but at the end of the day the 626 would always be more capable” He said proudly.

Today, Both Darryl and his 626 put in fewer hours, pulling a chaser bin during harvest and occasionally small construction jobs in the local area.

“I am very attached to my 626 Favorit, but if someone makes me a good offer, enough that I could buy a new 900 Vario, I would probably be weak,” laughs Darryl.

Images of Darryl’s Favorit 626 are available on Fendt Global.

Under the motto “Go East”, the Fendt sales engineer Jan-Christoff Hoffmann started out from Marktoberdorf today in a 936 Vario. His destination: a large-scale farm in the Ukraine with some 300,000 hectares of land. He will travel about 3,000 kilometres in the next four weeks to get there. He will drive through seven countries and work on different farms in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Moldavia and the Ukraine – doing tillage, grassland, transport and harvesting work as well as performing construction and forestry operations.

The team maps out the tour across seven countries.

Together with the agricultural engineering magazine profi, AGCO/Fendt will accompany the tour with a film crew, so that a brand-new, exciting DVD of the Go East Tour will be available for the Agritechnica 2013. The logo for the tour is a sun, because the sun rises in the East. That is the goal that drivers drive towards on their tractors in the morning and have in the rearview mirror in the evening after a long day at work.

REN Machinery – AGCO Dealership Changes Hands in Warragul Australia

REN Machinery, one of the longest serving machinery dealers in Warragul, Australia, has changed hands after 53 years of supporting their local community.

AGCO Managing Director and Vice President ANZ Warwick McCormick, along with staff, thanked the French family, the late Earl French and more recently Gary French, for their long involvement in supporting the various brands AGCO manufactures and distributes throughout Australia.

Taking over the Dealership and inheriting a tradition of service and professionalism from the French family, two local residents, Justin Kay and Brad Kinrade will now represent the Massey Ferguson, Fendt, Valtra and Iseki brands in Warragul and the surrounding districts

AGCO’s decision to appoint and support Justin and Brad in their new venture is an encouraging sign of the transition to a new generation of locally owned and operated dealerships that continue to support their local communities.

Justin and Brad thanked AGCO Australia for the confidence shown in their future plan to develop the local business and for the opportunity to be part of the ever increasing growth and diversity in products required for modern day farming practices.

“The brands that AGCO offer are all of premium quality and offer one of the most extensive product lines available to professional farmers, large and small alike and contractors in the Warragul region. We have confidence in the agricultural industry and look forward to offering these quality brands to existing and new R.E.N Machinery customers,” Justin and Brad said.

REN Machinery will continue operations from their existing Warragul premises.
