Fendt Katana 850
Fendt is finally showing a forage harvester with more than 800 hp, the Katana 850. The machine is powered by a Liebherr engine: The longitudinally mounted engine delivers 847 hp from a displacement of 18 liters, making it one of the most powerful six-cylinder engines. Only the Katana chipper has a reversible fan that automatically clears the radiators of dust. Hägele's Cleanfix fan is directly driven. When there is little need for cooling power, it twists its blades and consumes less power itself. A gearbox is flanged to the engine and distributes the power to the feeder, drum, cracker and throwing accelerator via the mega V-belt - Fendt calls it a power belt. A new feature is the larger action radius of the frame, which allows the pickup to swing out further on uneven surfaces, as well as the V-folding. The manufacturer is also showing for the first time a grindstone that adjusts continuously across the entire width of the drum. This means that the distance between the knives and the counterblade remains the same throughout.
