Fendt has definitely been the preferred tractor make of Carl Johan Schmidt from Agershov for many years. When Carl Johan needed to replace his combine harvester, he was in no doubt about the choice of make, and that it was to be a shaker.
The two Fendt tractors don’t look very old, but the hour meters in them have a story to tell. “My 712 has done 12,500 hours since 2002, and my 822 has done 11,000 hours since 1999,” says Carl Johan Schmidt from Agershov. Apart from the two Fendts mentioned, he also has a two-year-old Fendt 718 and an older Fendt 615, which has just been put into operation. But the newest member of the Fendt family of the chicken and pig producer from South Jutland is a Fendt 8410 combine harvester with a 30-foot PowerFlow cutter bar. “For 13 seasons I had been harvesting with the same MF 7272 with a 22-foot cutter bar, so the time had come to replace it,” he says.
