German agricultural machine-manufacturer Fendt has introduced the new Cargo T955 telehandler and announced the next generation of Fendt e100 Vario.

Claimed to be tough and having durable build-quality, the Fendt Cargo T955 telehandler comes with a unique lifting cab with vibration damping. The telehandler can take loads of up to 5.5 tons and light the weights to a height of 8.5m.

Developed in cooperation with SENNEBOGEN Maschinenfabrik, the Fendt Cargo T955 is claimed to handle tough applications. The telehandler combines the advantages of a conventional telehandler such as lifting height, reach, low body height, high manoeuvrability and is touted to be highly stable with the performance characteristics of a wheel loader in the same weight class.

The Fendt Cargo T955 has a lifting cab that can be raised to a viewing point of 4.25m. By lifting the cab merely by 20 to 30cm gives the user a 360° all-round view.

There is no dashboard to obstruct the lower part of the continuous windscreen, instead, the user can have floor-to-ceiling view of the surroundings. Together with the lifting cab, this gives the driver the perfect view of the attachment tool in almost every working position.

Loading can also be more precise and the driver stays comfortable on long working days. The drive intelligently regulates power distribution offering variable driving speeds of up to 40km/h.

Fendt e100 Vario will be launched at Agritechnica 2019

The company has unveiled its Fendt e100 Vario, the battery-powered tractor, in 2017 for the first time. The Fendt e100 Vario is the latest generation of the compact battery-powered tractor which will be launched at Agritechnica 2019.

In the past two years, the company’s e100 Vario is claimed to have undergone several practical tests set a range of different requirements and tasks such as farming applications to municipal use, including winter clearance work.

As DC superchargers are yet to find their footing on farms and in the municipality sector, to address the issue, the company has equipped the battery-powered tractor with Type 2 charging socket instead of a CCS socket. The tractor can also be charged using 400V sockets with up to 32A, which equates to charging capacity of 22kW. The battery can be fully charged in less than five hours.

Fendt e100 Vario is claimed to have been consistent across several practical applications and the performance and multi-purposeness of the vehicle has been demonstrated on various field tests with conventional PTO-driven implements such as tedders, rakes, feed mixers.
