The 822 Vario works in front of a large Hesston 7433 baler, while the 817 Vario pulls a threeunit mower combination. A neighbour, who Jantzi frequently helps in his contracting business, pulls his Hesston 2150 baler with his own Fendt 824 Vario. The 714 Vario, on the other hand, is used for transport and loading bales or driving a bale wrapper, which can wrap individual bales or a complete row of bales. The 513 Vario is primarily used for the hay rake and can also do loader work, if necessary. In the spring, says Jantzi, he will sow alfalfa with an AGCO seed drill.
“The 513 has enough hydraulic power to load large square bales weighing up to 450 kg. I only have to mount a weight at the rear to balance the tractor. What I like the best, however, is its manoeuvrability,” he says, highlighting the advantages of the tractor. He owned a Fendt 411 Vario before buying the Fendt 513 Vario. He was very excited to find out that the new one has the same manoeuvrability that he is already used to and offers higher performance to boot. Over 200 work hours in only three months speak for themselves.
