Father and Son contractors from New South Wales are happy with the comfort, performance and fuel efficiency of their newly purchased Fendt 930 S4 Vario. Father and son Jeff and Jeremy Brown work together in Spring Ridge in New South Wales, providing contracting services for cotton, sorghum, barley and wheat planting. Four months ago they purchased a new Fendt 930 S4 from North West Farm Machinery in Quirindi. It is the first Fendt tractor they have purchased.When asked about how the new Fendt has fitted in on Gowdgerwery farm Jeff said “I don’t get to see my son as often anymore, with our previous tractor I had to bring him diesel every afternoon but with the Fendt having very low fuel consumption he can finish a long day out in the field with ease”.
The new Fendt 900 S4 series tractors have been fitted with a twin turbo system which has further improved fuel efficiency. The Fendt 900 S4 has more torque and horsepower at lower engine speeds the result is less fuel consumption. The 900 S4 has now been put through the independent DLG fuel tests in Europe, in this stringent testing cycle the tractor is put through twelve different fuel and AD Blue tests. The tractor is tested under varying loads in draft, hydraulic, drawbar and transport work which reveals a tractors true fuel consumption figure. The 900 S4 series has set the lowest fuel and AD Blue consumption in its horsepower category.
