Thought for the Week

"If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results." Jack Dixon

Fendt 900 Series tractors offer updated features for 2014
Grainews
When AGCO invited members of the farm media to its Jackson, MN, tractor and sprayer assembly plant to look at new equipment, it didn’t limit what was on display to only machines built in there. Management also wanted to show off the newest models in its German-built Fendt tractor line, including a 900 Series tractor in the group of machines gathered in a field near the factory. Early in 2014, the company announced improvements to 900 and 800 Series Fendt tractors. So far these two model lines and the smaller 700 Series Fendts are the only ones available in Canada, but the company has promised to soon make the new, smaller 500 Series and the very-high horsepower 1000 Series just introduced in Germany available here too.

Kubota reaffirms position in market with launch of larger tractors
Farmers Guardian
In what is initially perceived as a natural progression for the company, giving customers and more product choice, the new series actually has a far greater impact particularly for dealers and rival manufacturers. While its previous smaller tractors were often considered complimentary products by dealers to their ‘larger’ brand tractors, these new more powerful machines have already upset the apple cart as now they are direct competition for the bigger boys, leaving some dealers to make a choice.

Terrain-following ability an advantage with Case 500 drill
Real Agriculture
The ability to follow the contours of a field sets the Case 500 drill apart from its competitors, but while it cuts the soil well, this unit could do a better job closing the soil. That’s according to Phil Needham of Needham Ag Technologies, who assesses the pros and cons of the Case 500T drill as part of the video below. The Case drill features an 18 inch disc blade set at at a 7 degree angle to create a seed slot wide enough to place seed into.
