 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.

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.
