Published on German magazine DLZ’s website, the picture shows the 9m long machine in Fendt’s trademark metallic green and silver show livery.  


 


Rumour has it that the big six-wheeler will be on show at Agritechnica in Hanover from 13th – 17th Nov.


 


Video of another tri-axle tractor has also been doing the rounds on the internet. It shows an enormous machine working with an equally enormous set of discs, tearing round like a bat-out-of-hell.

From what we could gather – although our knowledge of Czech isn’t that great – it steers on both front and rear axles and there is some form of suspension that allows the driver to romp along at such a fantastic pace.


 


Could it be the big Fendt undergoing testing in disguise? Or is it a completely different machine built by an eastern European company like Russian tractor maker Kirowetz?
