Fendt 720 Vario

Similar to the New Holland T5 and T6 pictured below, we have Stage IV emission regs to thank for the updated Fendt 700 series. We test the 720 Vario model.

Practical test

John Deere 8200i forager

The self-propelled forager market isn’t all about monster 800-900hp machines, with 400-500hp models still accounting for a healthy number of sales. Which is one of the reasons why we picked a ‘baby’ 295kW/401hp JD 8200i for our practical test.

Claas Direct Disc 600 header

Direct-cut forager headers are being asked to handle a wider variety of crops, cope with a greater quantity of material and make use of higher harvester horsepowers. Claas’s new contribution to the whole-crop sector is the Direct Disc 600.

New Holland T5/T6 tractors
