Experience a new dimension in tractor steering with our innovative Fendt ErgoSteer

The Fendt ErgoSteer steering joystick offers you an upgrade in terms of ergonomics and allows you to steer in a more relaxed and body-friendly manner for all field and yard work. The intuitive operation of the joystick is no problem even for changing drivers, and you will love the precise straight-line driving thanks to the self-centring retraction steering and the feedback of the steering angle to the driver. The individually adjustable armrest makes your workplace in the Fendt cab even more comfortable.

-  Can I order the Fendt ErgoSteer steering joystick ex works?

The Fendt ErgoSteer steering joystick is a retrofit solution. Can be ordered from all AGCO dealers via AGCO Parts. 


-  Can I also use the steering joystick on my tractor without Fendt One in the future?

Delivery is currently not possible. Possibilities for realization are being examined.


-  Why isn't the steering joystick also available for the 200/300 series with FendtONE, for example?

Due to the handbrake on the left next to the seat, it is not possible to access the handbrake as an emergency brake function through the joystick armrest.


-  How fast can I drive with the steering joystick?

Due to legal requirements, the speed of the machine is limited to 25 km/h when using the steering joystick.


-  Can I also use the steering joystick on my tractor with reverse drive station? If so, up to what speed?

Yes, also up to max. 25 km/h 


-  Is the steering joystick approved for road traffic?

The steering joystick is not approved for road use.


-  Is the joystick available in all markets (EME, NA, ...)?



-  Is it possible to order the armrest without the steering joystick?

Yes, no problem.


-  Can I simply swap the steering joystick unit between my machines?

Yes, no problem, if the second vehicle is equipped with an armrest on the left, only two toggle bolts including cable harness need to be removed. 


-  What setting options are available with the joystick?

• Retraction steering on/off

• Steering sensitivity


-  What is the meaning of retraction steering?

When the joystick is released, the vehicle steers back to straight ahead (0°) while driving.


-  Can the buttons be freely assigned?



-  Why is the housing below the steering joystick so large?

Due to the mechanics for position feedback.


-  Is this the same steering joystick as on the combine?



-  Will I lose the warranty for my seat if I add the armrest?

No, the armrest was tested and approved together with the seat manufacturers.


-  Can I drive on the road without using the joystick but with a passenger?

Yes, because the joystick must be switched off on the road.


-  Can I also use the steering wheel when the joystick is activated?

The steering wheel always works with priority.


-  Why do I have to register the steering joystick if I'm not allowed to drive it on the road anyway?

As the steering joystick interferes with the existing steering system, which must comply with ISO and UNECE specifications, installation invalidates the operating license and additional approval by a technical service/test centre (TÜV) is required. Machines for which the steering joystick has been included in the vehicle approval do not have to undergo this procedure. You can find out whether your machine already contains the information in the vehicle documents in the homologation document using your chassis number under the Operation tab.


-  Why is the steering joystick not available with the POWER or PROFI version?

The steering joystick realizes the steering movements via the steering valve of the guide system, so the POWER+ or PROFI+ equipment (guide preparation) is mandatory.
