High-Tech, High Horsepower
Fendt introduces the 800 Series tractors, new to the North American market after being unveiled at the Ag Connect Expo 2011. The tractors feature a top speed of 32 mph, versatile front and rear implement mounting, the Variotronic consolidated electronic control system, Tier IV Interim emissions compliance with a 6.06-liter Deutz four-valve, six-cylinder engine and a fully redesigned x5 cab. The hydraulic system of the Fendt 800 Series features a load-sensing pump with a delivery capacity of up to 50 gal. per minute. The Varioterminal measures 10.4" and can display up to four applications simultaneously; a standard 7" monitor is also available. A reversing driver’s station that allows the seat and armrest to rotate 180° is an option. The x5 cab has tinted front and side windows, automatic climate control and a seat heater.

Safer Reach into Roadside Ditches
For use in conjunction with the Schulte 10' or 15' rotary cutter, the redesigned Schulte FLX-1510 Flex Arm allows the operator to travel on the road during ditch mowing. When in transport, there’s no need to unhook the Flex Arm because it can tow directly behind the tractor. The FLX-1510 incorporates a set of swivel gearboxes and one right-angle gearbox to allow smooth transmission of power in any direction from behind the tractor to offset to the right. The tire placement allows the cutter blades to pick up the only wheel track and prevents most stripping. The Schulte FLX-1510 can be set with its new drive system to mow behind the tractor with no driveline vibration. For more detail, call (800) 404-6044 or visit www.schulte.ca.
