Juan de Dios and Manuel chose Fendt as their trusted brand for the most important part of their activity: the harvest. In 2014, they purchased a Fendt 6335 C PL combine with a 7-meter cutting header from their long-time, trusted dealer Repuestos Agrícolas Andaluces. According to the brothers’ annual estimate, the harvest in their area lasts 50 days and can easily reach 400 hours. Yet even after working nearly 3,000 hours total, their machine still feels brand new. “It is a very user-friendly combine. Fuel consumption is only 20 liters per hour, and maintenance cost does not exceed 3,000 euros on a yearly basis,” explained Juan de Dios. “The Fendt cab is much larger and offers excellent visibility. The lighting system is ideal for working at night.”
The brothers purchased the Fendt to replace a Laverda combine with a 6-meter cutting header. “We needed to work much slower because sometimes that combine could not process the entire crop we cut. With the Fendt 6335 C PL, we can perfectly work at 4.5 kilometers per hour.”
“The quality of the grain sample is very good, especially in our region where usually there are no humidity problems. The straw can be more fragile and of lower quality sometimes, but this can happen every 10 years, depending on the season,” explained Manuel.
The twins were so satisfied with the performance of their first Fendt 6335 C PL combine that they decided to buy a new one with the exact same features this year. “One more reason for changing our first Fendt 6335 C PL is the high residual value of this machine,” said Juan de Dios. “This has enabled us to get back a big part of our investment.”
