Tractor test: Fendt Favorit 716 Vario

Nobody actually drives a Fendt Favorit 716 Vario, they manage it. When and if operators are able to recognise this base requirement, they will quickly come to appreciate a premium-priced 118kW/160hp tractor that provides both supreme operator comfort and the performance characteristics to match. This is no tractor for the ‘boy’, though. Like all sophisticated kit, the 716 takes an experienced operator to get the best out of it, as Manfred Neunaber discovered
