New Fendt Katana 850 proves its worth for Gloucestershire contractor

Added 28/09/2023

One of the first all new Fendt Katana 850s to leave our Chandlers RFM Ross-On-Wye depot is already proving its worth for an existing Gloucestershire based customer, James Biddlecombe of JB Contracting Ltd.

"The machine is supremely quiet and fuel comsumption has reduced over the previous machine, with a significant increase in output due to the improved Crop Flow and Liebherr 18 litre 847 hp engine," reported James after only a few days of use.

Optimised crop flow has a significant impact on the machine's throughput and chop quality. When developing the crop flow, the focus was on a uniform feed flow at high throughputs and, at the same time, minimal power requirements.

The powerful in-line 6-cylinder engine is precisely matched to the requirements of a forage harvester in terms of its torque characteristics and features by particularly low maintenance costs, helping to keep cost of operation in check. If the full power of the forage harvest isn't required, it can be operated in fuel-saving Eco Mode. In Eco Mode, the usual running speed of the chopping cylinder is maintained at reduced engine speed making it possible to work fuel-efficiently, in both full-load and partial-load operation.

The Fendt Katana 850 is now available to order. For more information contact Chandlers Fendt Katana specialists Russ Brett on 07971 151750 or Matt Cooke on 07971 151751 at our Ross-On-Wye depot.
