Fendt brings new Vario track tractors to Australia

Presented by

Fendt has added to its Australian and New Zealand track tractor range, rolling out the 900 Vario MT and 1100 Vario MT models to the local market.

Fendt's range spans from 380 to 673hp (283 to 502kW) and includes a host of new features designed to enhance both comfort and performance.

"There’s nothing we haven’t thought of in creating the new Fendt Vario MT track tractors," Fendt product manager Tyron Midgley says.

"For flotation, ride comfort, fuel efficiency, implement operation, power and reliability, these new track tractors will definitely stand out as a great choice for the heaviest jobs.

"We’ve added some totally new, Fendt-exclusive innovations, such as a steerable three-point hitch system and a hydraulically controlled swinging drawbar option that make headland turns with large implements smoother for the operator, less demanding on the tractor and gentler on the soil."

The 1100 Vario MT is available in four different models, with the biggest being a 673hp (502kW) model which has a six-cylinder, 16.2L diesel engine and which Fendt claims is the highest horsepower track tractor available on the market.

Designed for the biggest jobs, the 1100 Vario MT tractors have been given plenty of attention in terms of suspension and hitch systems.

Smart Ride Plus load levelling, a Fendt-exclusive option, integrates with the front suspension springs to adjust tractor height and also keep it level when operating heavy attachments.

The tractors also have two-point cab suspension with integrated rear shock absorbers and two more shock absorbers with rubber bumpers on the front, Category 5 free swinging drawbar with 4990kg load rating as standard and the choice of a hydraulically controlled drawbar and hydraulically controlled three-point hitch.

There is also a dual pump, dual circuit hydraulic system for up to 440lpm of hydraulic oil flow and separate hydraulic oil reservoirs for implement and vehicle hydraulic systems.

The 900 Vario MT tractors are designed for optimum efficiency and can run at lower engine rpm to reduce fuel costs.

Features such as the dual pump, dual circuit hydraulic system and a 26cm Varioterminal operating system, compatible with ISOBUS, exist on both the 900 and 1100 tractors.

The 900 also has the Mobil-trac system, which is patented by Fendt’s parent company Agco and has a long wheelbase for more stability and to deliver power to the ground.

"Operators receive a noticeably different level of ride comfort when operating the 900 Vario MT tractors, especially over terraces and rough field surfaces," Midgley says.

"The Smart Ride system combines oscillating mid-wheels, hardbar suspension, cab suspension and seat suspension, giving operators great ride quality without sacrificing the in-field benefits of power, control and traction."
