Fendt adds extreme levelling option to C-series combines

Growers on challenging hillsides can now get greater slope compensation from Fendt’s C-series combines, with a new Super Level version of its 5275 combine.

The five-walker machine already comes in Para Level and Para Level Integrale spec – the firm’s slope adjustment mechanism – to provide a maximum of 20% side-to-side movement, 30% uphill and 10% downhill.

However, the new 5275 C Super Level maxes out at 38% on sideways slopes and has an extra 5% vertical tilt for uphill climbs (now 35%). Downhill remains the same as the Para Levels, at 10%.

This allows the threshing setup, grain tank, separator and cleaning system, as well as the driver, to remain level. Fendt’s Connect telemetry is also an option on C- and L-series machines.
