The power of precision: Fendt Katana forage harvester.

Forage harvesting and earning money is a lot of fun with the Fendt Katana. Because in the end it is always about performance. To be a cut above. With results that are convincing both in quality and quantity.

Precision is when one achieves maximum performance every time and everywhere.

The more varied the conditions, the more the Fendt Katana forage harvesters can play to their strengths. When working in grassland, it does not matter, if the terrain slopes, the ground is soft or the crop has different degrees of moisture. The Katana can manage all harvesting volumes. The huge cutterhead and the six feed rollers with their large intake can process the highest yields with the best chop quality.

The Fendt Katana forage harvester also gains momentum in maize operations. Tirelessly they work their tracks. Powerful and precise, they guarantee the highest, homogeneous quality of the chopped material in any crop and in any cutting length. There is no better way to process maize to a biogas substrate or fodder.

Unearthly power on any kind of ground.

Intelligent and standard: the four-wheel drive of the Fendt Katana forage harvester with anti-slip control for the individual wheel motors on the front axle. The differential gearbox for the suspended rear axle is driven by a hydraulic motor, where an automatic differential lock ensures the best traction when the difference in speed is too high. An HD ground drive with strong motors on the front and rear axles is available as an option for the Katana 65 for more
power, torque and traction. The HD ground drive is integrated in the Katana 85 as standard specification. The result: excellent ride comfort in any terrain.

Technology

Factory-installed HD wearing parts set

Wear-resistant HD components are available for the crop flow system. This way you can prolong the lifetime of wearing parts and achieve greater operational reliability during the harvest.

Crop Flow

Precision from above

The Fendt Vario technologies make you faster and more precise than ever. The new Fendt VarioGuide guidance system steers your Fendt Katana in two accuracy levels, +/- 20 cm and +/- 2 cm, thereby maximising area coverage. You have a choice of two different receivers and correction services. Parallel to that, the VarioDoc documentation system records all relevant data and immediately provides valuable information, from yield mapping to fuel consumption.

Modular & lightweight: the new tank concept

The new tanks on the Fendt Katana forage harvester
not only have a high capacity – their modular and
rugged plastic construction also spares a considerable
amount of weight. Choose between 1225 l diesel tank
with 205 l AdBlue tank or 1010 l Diesel, 205 l AdBlue and
215 l water or additive tank in the Katana 65. Or decide
for the Katana 85 with alternately 1430 l diesel tank or
1215 l diesel and 215 l water or additive tank. Either way
you profit from the comfort of the new tank concept:
the filler necks for diesel and AdBlue are located on the
left side where they are easily reached.

To Press Release

Pickup has a new HD drive

The P3002 Pickup has a new HD drive which enables a high output under extreme harvesting conditions. The centrally integrated feeler wheel ensures better ground following.

Headers

Automatically and manually sharp thanks to shearbar adjustment

Automatic shearbar adjustment with knife wear detection is available for the Fendt Katana forage harvesters starting immediately.

Advantages:

  • Automatic adjustment and easy to operate from the terminal
  • Knife wear indicator shows degradation of the knives
  • Adjustable clearance in 6 steps
  • Constant high quality of the cut reduces wear at the same time

When your head thinks “best chop quality”, your gut says: Fendt.

The success and profitability of a biogas facility already begins in the field. Because only short, precisely processed material can provide maximum energy yield. Efficiency that is standard in the Fendt Katana 65 and 85 forage harvesters.

Numerous Fendt Katanas on the market speak for themselves. And also for the many thousand satisfied cattle for Fendt. They are our toughest critics. They sort out the overlengths in chopped fodder immediately. Valuable energy, and as a result important milk output and daily weight gains, would be lost. In order to exploit the full energy from the crop, the kernels must be cracked completely.

5 golden rules for perfect silage

Silage quality = chop quality

Harvesting and silage technology, together with the crops on the field, form the basis for maximum milk output and energy yield.

Further information

Intensive chopping

The desired chop length should be constant and without overlengths, for every crop and under all harvesting conditions.

Further information

Proper kernel processing

Independent of the chop length, at least 95 % of all kernels must be cracked open. A good two-thirds (70 %) of the kernels should be split into at least 3 parts; only in this way does adequate starch become available. The rachis should be split into at least 8 parts.

Further information

Denser is more economical

Compression and compressibility of the chopped material is vital for good quality silage and therefore also for higher profitability. Homogeneous chopped material is a prerequisite for good compaction in the silo.

Further information

Monitor and correct

Regular monitoring of the chopped material for overlengths or uncracked kernels, e.g. with a shaker box, prevents poor digestibility, improper fermenting and mould.
