The 2021 Fendt 211 V Vario is the best specialized tractor of the year

After judging several models, the 2021 Fendt V Vario 211 earned the title of “Best of Specialized 2021” from Tractor of the Year. The Fendt 211 V Vario has a completely redesigned cab. This improved the overall experience for the working driver. 

In addition, the Fendt V Vario 211 features what’s called ‘Dynamic Performance.’ This extends the power range by controlling 10 hp of extra power. It automatically releases the excess power according to specific needs. Fendt’s system gauges this necessity in line with the specific work or jobs the tractor takes on at any given moment. 

Plus farmers know the Fendt 211 V Vario for its high quality. It’s also a tractor with expected reliability. In addition, this specialized tractor of 2021 boasts a “very efficient transmission,” according to Tractor of the Year.

What specialized tractor models made it as finalists for the award?

In addition, the Ferrari Vega 85 Dualsteer and the Reform Metrac H75 Pro made the cut. These tractor models stood out as specialized tractors that dominate the rest. But that brings us to another question.

A specialized tractor is just that––specialized. But how? A specialized tractor is designed for handling work in less common places. These are mountain tractors that excel in hilly farming situations such as vineyards. 

For the purpose of the Tractor of the Year award, these tractor models had to outshine others in a few categories. Transmission, engine, and overall comfort are the obvious judging points for any tractor award. But specialized tractors are also judged on their specialized agility and design.

Tractor of the Year, or TOTY, is an awards organization that awards tractors across Europe according to their performance and versatility. The TOTY awards are European-based. However, there are plenty of tractors in the running for these awards that we also know here in the farmlands of the United States.

Well-known brands in the USA like New Holland, John Deere, and Massey Ferguson all made the list of finalists for various TOTY awards. 

Fendt, for example, is a brand that operates under the corporate umbrella that AGCO provides. There are Fendt dealers across the United States. That means this tractor is relatively easy to access here making the Best Specialized Tractor of 2021 award even more relevant for the 2021 Fendt 211 V Vario.
