See the pics below for a combination of the best tractor and disc harrow technology in the world!! (sorry, not meaning to offend all the John Deere, Case MF and New Holland lovers, but these new 1000 series Fendts literally ooze class!!)

We caught up with the 420Hp Fendt demonstrator hooked to a set of our 4AG 4.5m DVi 970 primary offset discs at Phil Parry Contracting in sunny Mangakino this week. Discing sprayed out pasture, the big german was fair idling along at 10km/h and hardly noticed the discs on the back! You don’t really appreciate the size of this class of tractor until we saw it alongside a Fendt 930 in the same field, they are massive!! The weight block on the front weighs 3.3ton alone!!

When you’ve finished admiring the tractor, check out what a tidy job the discs are doing!!

"We milk 2600 cows in both North and South Islands, plus grow maize and various crops on 600 hectares of lease ground. We are constantly developing new ground to bring into production and the 4AG 970's are excellent for chopping up old, heavily thatched pasture and contouring rougher areas. Daily throughput is important to our size operation. so we're pretty happy to be averaging 3-4 hectares/hour!"
