need to till their fields quickly and comfortably. It was back in 1930 when the Hammond brothers and Sava valla built their first tractor the Hoss diesel which had only six horsepower today

high

performance machines make plowing a joy the latest model is a true agricultural giant a 14 ton engine its 517 horsepower engine gives you a top speed of 60 km/h the 1050 Vario is currently the most powerful standard tractor in the world it is manufactured in these huge workshops at the headquarters of Germany's largest producer of agricultural machinery a total of 3,200 employees work on an area of ​​400,000 square meters about 16,000 tractors the size of 57 football fields are manufactured here each year seven different models are manufactured on a single production line n one after another the heart of each tractor is the engine and transmission block this one alone weighs f our tons as much as three small cars the engine is a twelve point four liter 6 cylinder unit of ma n the manager of plant pays to be better first check the unit then production can start mounted on the transmission at the front is the frame for the engine the engine provides the power and the transmission distributes it the relatively large element here is our fan unit then we have the front axle and here the hydraulic tank for the next three hours the unit will go through 29 assembly stations then the most powerful series in the world the built tractor will be ready first the data cables are connected to the engine and transmission block the tractor high-

An 800-litre tank ensures that the tractor can handle any job for at least 12 hours without stopping to refuel. All components come from a logistics warehouse which is also located on the huge site the right part for the respective model is supplied at exactly the right time the wide range of necessary components are delivered in the standard way but we don't have enough space to store them all on each belt so it takes a lot of logistical experience and intelligence from our staff to get the right part to the belt at the right time at this station the driver's cab is placed on the engine block it is manufactured and pre-assembled in another factory depending on the The equipment weighs up to 1.2 tons.

All assemblers are specialists who have completed three and a half years of training as an agricultural machine mechanic, auto mechanic or mechatronics technician. The cab is secured with 14 huge bolts 7 on the left and 7 on the right to the harsh demands of field operation the cab must be securely mounted this important work step is also known as the marriage with cause the marriage means installing the engine in the vehicle for us it means linking the cab to the tractor in the next section of assembly the installers installed a battery box then connected all the electrical system then the engine hood was attached followed by the radiator shrouds one on each side of the tractor at the next station the tractor receives its diesel fluids and hydraulic oil and cooling water, then a series of tests are carried out to ensure that the indicators and headlights, for example, work properly and to see that the wipers work, the staff then check the steering and on-board systems. the electronics thought of a crisper one but marked it off after downloading the software the various electronic functions on the tractor are tested the axles are adjusted and checked together with all electronics and all other functions the new tractor has to pass more than one hundred tests before it is allowed to leave the factory during assembly the new tractor has to go through seven quality checks among other things for the transmission and the hydraulic and electrical systems many parts can only be checked for another four components such as wheel assembly all results are collected in a computer system only if the tractor passes all the tests it is released for the next assembly phase if an error occurs or a defect is detected the tractor is taken to the assembly section repair to be repaired and checked once more by specially trained personnel the next work step is one of the most important while the new tractor has its wheels complete with tires the front wheels each weigh 400 kilograms the rear wheels 800 diameter 2 meters 35 in comparison a normal car tire measures only 60 centimeters in diameter there are tires for road or off-road use a tire for field use needs a lot of tread so it can grip for road use as a construction vehicle for example less tread is required wheel assembly is precision work electric guided forklifts lasers transport the wheels directly to the tractor lift 12 centimeters later, the wheels will be fixed to the tractor by 12 huge wheel nuts the wheel puts the power in contact with the ground the choice of tire is of crucial importance because, depending on the task , determines how effectively engine power is transferred to the surface now the super tractor can to move for the first time under its own power on this roller test stand you have to demonstrate for the first time what you can do and if all the work on the vehicle has been carried out correctly it weighs many tons the colossus is anchored with chains steel to make sure it doesn't break test run lasts six minutes tractor accelerates first to 40 then 50 then 60 km/h in each case

braking brings th Tractor has stalled This tractor has passed the tests Engine and brakes work as required Tractor is now complete Final inspection is all that is required First check is to see if all lights have the legally required luminosity here at the end of the assembly line in the tunnel This factory produces about 8 tractors per day, mainly for customers in Europe, but we also have customers in South Africa, North America, and some off-road countries. well-trodden, final inspection takes around 20 minutes function of each component is checked one last time all components in the right place have been properly secured tractor has scratches or defects future owner should take possession of a perfect tractor even If the rigors of daily operation will soon take their toll, the underbody is checked to make sure all hoses are routed correctly and nothing is dangling Tractor has passed final inspection n Within the next few days it will be shipped to a farm in north east germany mostly farm machines have a purpose in life to do the hard work today about a million tractors and farm machines are in service in germany 200,000 of them were manufactured in this huge factory in the algo region of bavaria, near hoyt in upper franconia, it is time for the construction contractor secha de maize benjamin insuline contracted his equipment and personnel to

farmers

in the region who do not have large machines of their own and to those who purchase one. it would not be financially viable today these four men are going to harvest a field that is 11 hectares in size a short summary in advance for me the most important thing with the corn field is the quality of the crush it is vital for the farmer and for the biogas that the shells are well cracked because they are the source of biogas energy, the next thing that is important is that the driver knows the fields that sometimes contain cairns s so you really have to be careful especially around the perimeter and it is important for us to work as a team so that each man knows where the crusher is going and how the machines should be filled these are essential issues are a matter of priority for me and so is quality work the four man team has arrived with two tractors with trailers and a additional tractor and field chopper this gigantic field chopper can process 120 tons of corn per hour tractors with trailers always have They need to travel exactly parallel to the crusher requires great concentration on the part of the drivers, otherwise the vehicles could crash.

I must be attentive to what it indicates and to the cutters. It's all about concentration. The field chopper weighs 18 tons. 650 horsepower engine consumes 45 liters of gasoline per hour The crusher and tractors are equipped with ultra-modern technology such as GPS The positioning system is mainly used during sewing when centimeter to centimeter precision is required to make optimal use of arable area compared to what we are

. Concern for the visual judgment of the driver. It's important because he sees better where obstacles in the ground may be in tall corn if they are not discovered in time. the row of 10 sharp blades in front of the chopper could be damaged today's corn crop by the way it will be used entirely for power generation electricity and heat will be produced in a biogas plant the difference between feed corn and energy corn is determined chopped length as it is known depending on what the corn will be used for is cut into longer or shorter lengths today corn has become the most important plant for producing biogas provides high yields is easy to plant and cultivate and does not It has storage problems now our cut length is six millimeters we can store two lengths in the computer if I see the corn getting thin I lower it to four millimeters that is exactly biogas material. the thinner the corn the shorter it should be shredded and the greener the corn the longer the chop lengths should be right now we are using six millimeters on the material it is coming out of the machine nicely today the men will be working on the field for 11 hours and harvesting around 1400 tons of corn there isn't that much bass it's so much fun and driving a crusher gives you a great feeling it's just fantastic to sit in a crusher like this you're the boss the best man it's so cool to drive through from villages because other people on the road have to get out of the way tractors drive trailers with harvest to farm corn is unloaded and covered with tarpaulin energy corn will ferment in energy-rich Sailaja after 30 days of fermentation in a biogas unit the mass will emit methane gas, a gas engine will generate electricity and heat from it, i guess we will have to store around 1500 tons of corn in the silos, that is feasible, I am confident that we will achieve it.
The corn from the field is evenly distributed in the silo and then compacted. The SI lodge fermentation process is only started under the tarpaulin in airtight conditions. Compaction in particular is the right task for the 14-ton super tractor. It's the perfect machine for spreading and compacting the corn in the silo in the past we used to do the job with a Fendt 930 job but now we set the standard especially on the big tractor because it's extremely heavy and has 500 horsepower we don't have any problems in distributing the 40 or 50 cubic meters of corn delivered from the field Buffa Ananda Sala's home in Lower Franconia houses one of the largest tractor and farm machinery workshops 40 employees service and repair up to 15 machines at the same time This tractor has to be fitted with a new front PTO shaft to which work tools can be attached the job of the transmissions is to transfer rotational motion from the engine to thefront end work tool such as a lawnmower that needs to run at 1,000rpm converting the tractor owned by a local farmer takes a whole day and costs several thousand euros then the mechanics fit the new intake front axle of power to the tractor later will drive the mower on the front of the tractor blow up a bit in a bit a bit what's that good just a moment the mechanics here trained in farm and construction machinery so they are specialists in excavators and tractors lower the crane so you can get it loose nice so the straps are used to secure the component are removed and underneath you'll have to tighten the hex bolt there it is the men here don't do conversion work like this every day though every move it has to be perfect slowly slowly not quite right and a little later in a little more this is a new model everything is a bit different rent, like the bolts and some of the connections, when you work on a new vehicle you have to use your head a bit, it's been quite a while since we last worked on a new model on the tractor sharpened to work on special extensions se is carried out exactly according to the assembly instructions because a modern tractor consists of tens of thousands of components, whether it is inspections, engine conversions or accident repair work at first glance, the farm machinery workshop seems like an ordinary auto shop it's just that everything here is on a much larger scale this vehicle hit a haystack and got dented the radiator grille is pushed in the camera that fits here was broken as were the lamps so we are going to replace everything so that the tractor looks like new for tractors, harvesters and others the mechanics use tools similar to those found They come into a car shop but they are usually a bit bigger here we have a box with ratchets from size 4.5 to size 32 we also have allen sockets we need all this for the machines we also have ordinary star wrenches from size 5 to size 50 en so elegant the ratchet wrench is here to loosen the huge nuts and the wheels of a tractor have a diameter of up to 80 millimeters for cart wheels the maximum is 17 millimeters the important thing in this job is that the tractor looks good in the field we wanted fix it but it was already broken we only glued it temporarily it seems that we are going t or I have to ask for a new port to make it good again this inscription is scratched and can no longer be repaired the men have almost finished assembling the front PTO shaft on tractor owner will soon be able to connect a mower a hard day's work for mechanics is coming to an end, of course, more than 5 grams the weight pod It would be a problem but we have great equipment such as cranes we have everything we need the attachment has been installed now just need to update the embedded software modern tractors are high tech machines I have to tell the tractor it now has a PTO shaft at the front and an additional control unit.
I will check the software and then if necessary update the mechanics. Now put the hood on and add all the fluids, cooling water and hydraulics and transmission. Oil The engine that will later also drive the mower is a 185 horsepower water-cooled six-cylinder diesel The tractor has a top speed of 50 kilometers per hour and a total weight of 8 tons The fuel tank has a capacity of f 400 liters a final test company on the engine or something seems ok the control unit is building pressure we just need to attend to one or two more details like the side panels the wings the tires then the tractor will be ready to use again in a few days this agricultural colossus will harvest again in the fields of Franconia agra Technica is the world's largest trade fair for agricultural machinery which takes place in Hannover every two years attracts 450,000 visitors who come to see the latest combine tractors and other special machines the vehicles arrive five days before the Fair starts eight specialists make sure the machines are on display at the venue ar right at the right time you brought the mil and the 724 so let's unload it's Dennis Tabor and Marko the best job making sure everything runs smoothly over the next two days a total of 32 multi ton machines will arrive at the fairground in trucks the first arrival is a 517 horsepower 1050 V ario the most powerful standard tractor in the world the 14 ton monster almost fits on the low bed truck there should be no mistakes when unloading or when placing it is vital that the machines arrive in the order they would be placed in the pit those on the other end should arrive first the large machines likely to be on display at the front will be last making it easier for us to get everything in the correct position now a large amount of machinery is required concentration because this is real precision work on unloading a machine Denis Temma has to make sure the wheels don't slip off the narrow loading ramp.
Almost all of the exhibits have already been sold to customers as demo machines, so the team has to doubly ensure that virtually the entire range of this farm is not damaged. Machine builders' products will be on display in an area of ​​3,000 square meters, which means a lot of work for Dennis Kaiba and his team. Take a look - the lift unit only needs to move forward. d a little this mega tire is about to be mounted on one of the stars of the fair, the 10:50 Vario with twin tires instead of two tires at the rear four will be mounted, this will allow the tractor to transfer its enormous power to the ground even more effectively but with the twin tires the Colossus wouldn't have been installed on the truck that's why they will be installed here at the show including the tire each wheel weighs 800 kilograms one wrong move and the mechanics could be injured easily. that's why they use this moving jack for assembly, yes it looks good they are perfect don't push it we need to make it roll slowly let's roll it first it doesn't move if the tires are not flush the tires will lean. i'm trying to lift it up a bit lower it's all going up a bit more stop python be careful i don't want the tires to be so big i could fit inside them the wheel has now been secured with several nuts and the mechanic can't change its position anymore cs can now relax while they put the rest of the 12 wheel nuts on, so they are now held in place, each wheel is 2 meters, 35 high and 75 centimeters wide. side ok until it's ok nothing for my lesson you know wait i'll lower it a little more no not much me a little higher here ok it's in after two hours the first twin tire is secure in place now it's time for the other side but before the mega tractor with its twin wheels can enter the hall the specialists drive the other machines to the stand the men work from the back to the front because the Fair Hall has only one wide entrance in other words the tractor that is supposed to it's right up front you have to get into the hall at the end everything seems ok i think we can drive it ok ok i'll guide you and you drive it's ok for me it will be shown to the public for the first time at the show a special feature is its infinitely variable transmission there is no Tracked gears are mainly used in regions with a lot of rain such as Great Britain because of their larger contact area compared to wheel tracks they can fu perform much better on wet ground this 431 horsepower model weighs 15 tons more and more tractors and attachments arrive as night approaches after hours of work dennis tebbis still needs

concentration to safely maneuver one farm machine after another until the stop at the trade show if it goes in at an angle the accessory unit could slip off the trailer and then you need a crane, worst of all the machine could tip over and be badly damaged there are a lot of obstacles especially in the aisle well that's it where they go, that's the little one that goes there and that one near the box, we should be able to back towards the box, things need to be rearranged constantly.
In order to create space, the narrow passages of the trade fair were not made for farm machinery that was too wide. The stand builder has his job. We have to bring the ma. Chinese we have to handle the situation the best we can to try to create space the fair is still under construction so there is construction material everywhere which makes the address a test for Dennis TiVo along with the problem of space there is another challenge the floor of the exhibition stand the driver must not drive while stationary because that would move the carpet and we would have to fully re-route him so he can only drive when the vehicle is moving air hoses and all electrical cables have also been laid on the floor, so we also need to make sure the wheels don't damage them.
It's precision work to place everything exactly where the planners intended. This is our central line. is exactly in the middle, the same also applies to the length of the vehicle, again there is a specific make and the machine must also be parallel to all other machines, I don't just go back straight perfect, well, the throne room is look good, all the company's machines are now in the showroom, except for the highlight, the world's most powerful standard tractor with its twin tires, now it has to pass through the narrow entrance to the hall, yes. we're done we adjusted everything for the problems now it's a bit tricky the ground is not quite flat no but i think we did a good job so let's make sure we can get the machine into the hall today the mega tractor is now five meters wide and the entrance to the hall is only a few centimeters wider success the giant is now exactly in its position the exhibition stand is complete and the visitors are delighted not only farmers are inspired by agricultural machinery but also children and there is a lot to look forward to view On an area of ​​3,000 square meters, this manufacturer of agricultural machines exhibits 32 products at Agri Technica, the highlights being a new large combine harvester, a new tracked tractor and a new cargo vehicle. lloy located near the huge tractor factory it is this gravel pit this is where the tractors have to prove how well they can withstand the strain and stress dr.
Heinz Birla is a departmental manager Stefan Pills is a test driver today They want to run some kind of long crash test in the morning Hey good morning all set yeah great all bolts checked. the critical points yes we can do that first there is a critical point on the tie rod we will need to check for cracks like with the bolts I already checked them and you tighten them with a torque wrench have you checked all the pressure the tires? what I can have is that the rear weight of 1800 kilos is not like in the last tests as in the last test the front loader measures 2 meters 10 correctly before a new or modified agricultural machine goes into volume production is subjected to lots of hard stress tests bluefin visual check completed all bolts check nothing is missing great let's start the test to determine if the track with its front end loader can withstand stresses that are 20% higher than the requirements for work on the field no cracks should appear if the bolts came loose in the first place Stefan pills fills the shovel with gravel then reverses full throttle and slams on the brakes this maneuver also exposes parts of the tractor to extreme forces I am a designated hottie this is a tough test , in fact excessive, no driver would behave like this normally, but we want to cover the entire useful life of a tractor in a short time to be sure of that the vehicle will be able to cope with every effort and load when we deliver it to the customer the objective of the test is to test the front loader itself, as well as the vehicle body, axles and propulsion system the test covers all these areas that this tractor has overcome with great success at the headquarters of the farm machinery manufacturer there is also a showroom where current models of the company are on display Tobias Guggenmos is a farmer who is thinking of buying a new tractor for his dairy operation this is a one terminal tractor with machine learning necessary electrical control valves contains more technology than the 300 model here we have the front linkage you know from your 310 it only has a raise and lower function but here we have electrical control valves under the linkage position-controlled front with pressure relief the mower adapts perfectly even to the unevenness of the surface cie how are the conditions on your farm yes we are in the alloy we have everything from hills to valleys so i advise you to go for this technology a new farm machine costs up to halfmillion euros that's an investment but for their money customers get technology and computer support like in a spaceship the GPS system allows the tractor to be driven with an accuracy of two centimeters and without overlap, so you don't even have to drive the company now also has crawler tractors in its program they are mainly used in regions where the ground is soft due to the larger contact surface a crawler can transfer its power to wet ground much better crawlers a It is also the first choice for agriculture and particularly sensitive terrain.
The large ground contact area is gentle on the ground. less ground pressure ground protection and traction transfer are better with track skids by between three and five percent compared to around 10 percent for a wheeled tractor wheel slippage occurs during a substantial transfer of traction in the field the less slip the better it's like being in a spaceship cool you don't get when you walk around here it really gets you I'll sit down with my family and go over our finances I think everything looks good the ultimate decision making aid is the circle track nearby here customers can try any model of tractor more than scared we have the mil series 1040 to 420 horsepower model the biggest model has 500 horsepower drives the same as any other fence so you are used to it want to try it and can't wait to sit in it and enjoy the smell hear the power and the noise and just the leave me i want to experience it on the road and it absorbs all the driving sensation this tractor has a top speed of 60 km/h it weighs 14 tons this version costs almost 400,000 euros but it will be fantastic to get on this spaceship and when the engine roars your fingers vibrate you grip the direction you select and put your foot down the force pushes you into the seat as if you were taking off in a spaceship tractors and farm equipment made in Germany what started as a small tractor company has now been a global company for a long time For years alloy farm machines have been seen in fields around the world
