In the end, the winner was clear for Daniel Otto – "We chose the Fendt mainly because of the low fuel consumption. We also loved how easy it is to use." That was important because not every tractor driver learns how to handle an 200-hp tractor from scratch. He was also surprised by the high market value of his three 'old' Fendts, after all, each of the tractors had over 13,000 operating hours on the clock. But together with their young age, their excellent performance and condition, these used machines are sought-after items on the used machinery market.
"Of course, people always ask why you need a high-tech machine from Marktoberdorf for this easy kind of work," adds the branch manager. The quick answer is: "We need technology we can rely on! A decent worker without all the fancy extras." That's why Viela Export GmbH opted for the low-end equipment bundle, Power. The tractors are used exclusively for transport work. They don't need lane guidance or documentation for short shuttle runs on the land. Perfect lighting with LED headlights and a comfortable seat are much more important. Each 720-series works up to 2,500 hours over multiple shifts on the port site every year. And to move things quickly between the two ports, all the Varios run on the 50-km/h setup.
