After a three-year break due to the Covid-19 pandemic, machinery giant Fendt, said it was happy to be back at the Royal Highland Show with loads of new kit.

The updated Fendt Ideal 9T combine is the headline act at Ingliston this year, this time coupled to a 40ft Gerringhoff header. The model on display also features our innovative joystick control, meaning there is no steering wheel – giving an uninterrupted view of the header and feed system.

From its tractor ranges, on display will be a Fendt 211 Vario, Fendt 312 Vario, Fendt 724 Vario and finally a Fendt 942 Vario. All machines are fitted with the latest FendtONE interior.

On the baling front it will show the Fendt Rotana 160 V round balers. With the unique hydroflex floor and a choice of 13, 17 or 25 knives in its cutting unit, with three control options.

On display for the first time will be the Fendt Cargo T740 telehandler a new machine which incorporates many of the features found in it’s bigger brother, the Fendt Cargo T955, but aimed directly at the agricultural sector. Featuring a 7.7m working height, with a four-tonne maximum load capacity, its Fendt TopViewCab lifts this machine above the rest.

This can be raised to an eye level of 4.1m and allows operators a direct view into trailers or feeder mixers during loading.

This year, visitors will also have the opportunity to examine the detail of Fendt's RoGator 645 self-propelled sprayer, which have tank capacities of between 3850 and 6300 litres and a choice of boom widths from 24m to 36m. These all have section control, variable rate control and VarioDoc Pro control systems on board.

Fendt's stand is No 141 on seventh avenue.
