The Fendt 942 Gen 6 Tractor
We were fortunate to have the opportunity to be included as a stop on the Fendt 900 Series road show. Yesterday we, along with some of our customers, were able to get up-close and personal with this new Fendt 942.
The new series has a lot similarities to the 1000 series, yet offers a more compact, lightweight design at a lower horsepower range. For operations not needing the high horsepower requirements offered in the 1000 Series, this tractor is a lower-cost alternative.
Designed to be suitable for row crop applications, it offers an expanded tire option which can be implemented right off the factory floor.
The new 900 series offers front PTO which can be used in conjunction with the two front remotes.
Also offered on this new series is the reversible fan option, providing optimal cooling and engine protection.
The beauty of this tractor is all of the similarities it shares with the 1000 series. The low engine speed concept, single range CVT transmission, 113 GMP dual hydraulic pump, and the wishbone front axle with the pull-in turn effect- just name a few.
It was an exciting day getting to check out this new gem with our customers, and it was great to have all of the AGCO representatives here to showcase this new Fendt.
Thank you to all who attended, customers and AGCO representatives alike.
We are looking forward to having one of these on our lot in the future!
