From 1928, the Fendt company was still busy producing laboriously hand-built grass mowers. Nevertheless, in 1930 they presented the first Fendt tractor, the Fendt Dieselross F9. The name Dieselross related to the workhorses still widely used at the time in farming but bit-by-bit being displaced by diesel-powered tractors. The Fendt Dieselross F20G on which our Schuco model to a scale of 1:18 is based was Fendt‘s mid-range model from 1951. Over 6,300 were built up to 1957 and had an upright, single-cylinder, 4-stroke engine with a displacement of 1.5 litres, delivering 20 hp through an 8-speed gearbox to the rear axle. This permitted speeds from 0.8 to 20 km/h (0.5 - 12.5 mph). Since 1997, the former family business in Marktoberndorf has belonged to the American agricultural equipment concern, AGCO Corporation and, since 2009 has traded under the name of AGCO GmbH. Schuco is going to produce in a limited edition of 1.000 pieces a miniature model of this Fendt Dieselross F20G to a scale of 1:18. Just like the other models of the Schuco Edition 1:18, the Fendt comes with many lovingly crafted details, such as opening and closing doors, a front opening hood and the opening bonnet under which the highly detailed replica of the engine is accommodated.
