A particular winning feature was the hydraulic control on the Fendt. The resulting power gained allows even the small Varios to do two things at once; mowing while cutting or weeding while mowing, for example. It's an enormous time saver for the winegrower. Permanently locking in the transmission power, the stepless drive is another clear advantage, especially on steep slopes. Today, the estate's fleet includes six Fendt tractors, and it's not just the efficiency that speaks for Fendt. Performance also played a decisive role in the choice of brand. “These tractors can carry out all the wine-growing work as well as the usual transport tasks. So, we can save ourselves having to buy a conventional farm tractor,” explains Rachel, co-executive director of the company and experienced business economist. Nearing the end of our visit, Benoit mentions the enthusiasm of his employees: Spending less and less time among the vines himself, he trusts his vineyard managers, both real Fendt fans. The fun of a well-functioning machine undoubtedly has an impact on the motivation of the employees. And when transporting the harvest to the cellar and the wine to the bottling hall, the drivers appreciate the comfort of all the ergonomic details.
