International AGCO/Fendt Press Conference 2010
Fendt Katana 65
The first public presentation of the Fendt Katana 65 forage harvester at this year'sField Day in Wadenbrunn is being awaited with great suspense. “For a leading globalagricultural equipment manufacturer and the premium brand Fendt it is a must tooffer all key machines in the product portfolio. With the Fendt Katana 65, we havetaken the last big step towards becoming a full-liner,” said Peter-Josef Paffen,Spokesman for the Fendt Management.
For these reasons, the AGCO Corporation decided to develop a forage harvester a fewyears ago and is employing the development expertise of the Marktoberdorf location for thiscompletely new development. The newly formed forage harvester team used the existingdevelopment expertise from the tractor division at Fendt very intensively. The experiencedengineers in the forage harvester development team received support from theprofessionals in tractor development, for example, for the hydraulics, electronics, engineand cab. This led to new ideas and enabled completely new approaches in thedevelopment of the Fendt Katana 65 forage harvester. The name Katana, which ourengineers have chosen for the new product, signifies how high the aims for thisdevelopment are. A katana is a Japanese samurai sword and stands for high performance,sharpness and precision.
