The Fendt 300 Vario series has been one of Fendt's biggest sellers for years. This latest generation comes with FendtONE – an all-new driver's workstation. For the first time, the intuitive FendtONE operating philosophy combines machine operation with direct communication in the office. This makes the 300 Vario an absolute pioneer in ergonomics, control and ease of use. The concept is supplemented with an optional infotainment package and 4.1 sound system. Meticulously designed down to the last detail, FendtONE offers you the experience of intuitive control and functionality. The new driver's workstation includes a 10" dashboard, an armrest with multifunction joystick and, depending on the equipment variant, a 12" terminal. With the armrest anchored to the seat, you can easily adjust any setting without much movement at all. There is also a second networked 12" terminal, which you can stow half way into the cab roof.
300 Vario Generation 4:
Always the right choice. For 40 years. And for many years to come.
The Fendt 300 has been a unique success story since 1980, with 140,000 vehicles sold. This series is perfect for most farms in terms of performance, quality, versatility and outstanding residual value. The 4th generation Vario features the all-new driver's workstation with FendtONE as well as the high-end model 314 with 152 hp max. output. The concept seamlessly unites machine and office. With this, the 300 Vario is again a pioneer among compact standard tractors.
* Maximum power to ECE R 120
** Maximum power with DP ECE R 120
314 Vario DynamicPerformance: More than one step ahead
DynamicPerformance (DP), Fendt's added power concept for greater area coverage and higher productivity
The 314 Vario DP has a maximum engine power of 152 hp at an impressive torque of 650 Nm. The innovative power-boost concept DP releases up to 10 hp more power when it's needed. It is not tied to driving speeds or special operational tasks, but works purely dynamically. Typically, the engine power of tractors is distributed across numerous power consumers – such as the PTO, hydraulics, engine fans and air conditioning. The system detects when certain components need more power and then provides it through smart control. DP works at a standstill – such as with your feed mixer wagon – just as it does on the move. DP also kicks in for groundwork and for slow transport journeys according to the power required from active consumer units. The 10 hp extra power of the 314 is great for farms that use a compact, lightweight and powerful tractor with reserves.
High ground clearance for plant protection, even in late growth stages
Plant protection and fertilisation in late growth stages increase yield. The 300 Vario offers you the high ground clearance required for this. 500 mm for use with special crops. 500 mm = for the tyre options: 270/95 R32 front and 270/95 R48 rear.
Vario added power – save up to 7% on time and 9% on diesel
The extra power of the Fendt Vario comes from always working at the perfect speed and optimum efficiency to achieve maximum area coverage. It taps into power reserves that powershift gears just can't touch. Independent tests* show that this saves you up to 7% in working hours* and up to 9% diesel* compared to shift gears, depending on the type of farm. For a 100 ha forage farm, this equates to up to 46 working hours per year and up to 11,600 litres in diesel** over 7,000 operating hours. In terms of cash benefits with the continuous system, that's over €25,000***!
Basic data: *Landwirtschaftliches Wochenblatt Westfalen-Lippe, 5-2001; 100ha forage farm; **Own calculations: 140 hp tractor, 700 operating hours per year – runtime 10 years/7,000 operating hours; average consumption 20 l diesel / operating hours; saved operating costs: Rental costs for a 140-hp tractor – €20/operating hour*** (machinery syndicate rates for 140 hp – http://www.mr-bayreuth.de/images/inhalte/verrechnungsheft2018.pdf; 460 operating hours = €12,800/7,000 operating hours)
Light, agile, stepless gliding at just 33kg/hp
Soil compaction reduces yield, and that's true for arable farming and grassland. Extensive tyre options and the low weight-power ratio of the 300 Vario are gentle on your soil. At just 5010 kg or 33kg/hp, the 314 Vario is a real lightweight. And it can ballasted to your needs. At the headland, benefit from its outstanding manoeuvrability with a min. turning radius of 4 metres.
The new FendtONE drivers' workstation
FENDT ONE: Intuitive use, connecting machine and office for the very first time
Pure ergonomics: Multifunction joystick and crossgate lever
Settings and overview in the dashboard
Armrest control panel with ingenious colour guidance
Here you will find all functional groups in one place, in colour-coded control panels for gearboxes, power lifts, hydraulic valves and PTOs. There are also 5 freely assignable buttons, so you can customise the controls. The button allocation is set with the Individual Operation Manager (IOM) on the terminal. A clever colour concept helps the driver to quickly find their way around and avoid operator errors. The driver immediately sees whether buttons have been re-allocated by the colour concept. In the IOM you can also reprogram the 19 preset buttons, for functions like pre-activating the steering system (On/Off), the all-round indicator lights (On/Off) and valves.
New 12" terminals – more functions and display area
The 314 Vario now features the 12" terminal, which includes all the assist systems, such as Contour Assistant, SectionControl and VariableRateControl. The ever-increasing number of terminal
applications means you need more display room in the tractor.
Together with the new operating philosophy, the new Fendt 314 Vario features an optional second 12" terminal in the roof on the right-hand side. Up to 6 freely configurable screens are shown on the terminals. The terminals can be operated using the pushdial but also via touch, for easier control. You can also assign the use of the keys in the Individual Operation Manager (IOM) on the terminal. A clever colour concept helps the driver to quickly find their way around and avoid operator errors. Linking the terminals, drivers can customise the display areas and get a better overview.
The extra 12" roof terminal
The extra 12" roof terminal on the right is linked to all the other terminals. You can shift the content so it works for you ergonomically. You can also partially push this terminal into the roof for a better overview on the road, so you can still use 50% of the display area for main views over 3 sections.
As well as the well-known crossgate lever, the new 3L joystick with up to 3 operating levels and up to 27 functions is also available as an option. With the 3L joystick, you can control the front loaders Fendt Cargo and Fendt CargoProfi, including special functions. You can now use the 3rd valve together with the 3L joystick and the Fendt front loaders to run 3 functions at the same time; use round baler forks to lift the front loader, retract the forks and close the clamp at the same time, for example. If your working day includes frequent changes of direction, the reverse drive button makes your work quicker and fatigue-free.
300 Vario in 3 equipment versions Power, Profi and ProfiPlus
With its modular design, the 300 Vario can be perfectly adapted to your requirements with a range of equipment to choose from. The Power variant (pictured above) starts with the high-performance, adjustable 10" digital dashboard. Simply adjust the settings with the new pushdial on the right-hand armrest. The entire cockpit can be completely rotated and adjusted by foot pedal.
Infotainment bundle with 4.1 sound system
Four high-end speakers and a subwoofer deliver superior sound quality in the VisioPlus cab. Enjoy playback from your smartphone via USB, AUX-IN and Bluetooth. FM/AM/DAB+/HD and two antennas with permanent channel search also ensure uninterrupted radio reception. Make phone calls in your 300 Vario with a fantastic quality hands-free kit: 8 microphones installed in the roof liner mean your hands are free and the sound is excellent. Use the Varioterminal options and the side control dial.
Consistent and intuitive operating philosophy
For the first time, the new FendtONE platform merges your machines and your office into one control unit. FendtONE combines the familiar operation of the tractor with the terminal for planning or control tasks that classically would take place in the office. You can schedule field data and orders on your computer or smart device wherever you are, and send them to your machine. The view from the driver's cab and online (from the office or on the move) is always the same. FendtONE helps you comply with legal documentation requirements and optimises your entire work processes.
When new ideas and old values come together
Top software for superior productivity: SC/VRC, Contour Assistant and Task Doc documentation
For the first time, you can use all the Fendt lane guidance and documentation options with the light and smart 300 Vario. The Contour Assistant adds the wayline types Contour Segments and Single Track to the existing types. The different segments are recorded by just a single lap around the field using the Contour Segments wayline type. Field boundaries can therefore be quickly and easily established. Use Single Track to record an almost endless track with an open contour. Parallel tracks are not automatically generated and tramlines are stored as contour lines.
Never do the same job twice, with SC
With Fendt SectionControl for ISOBUS implements, you can apply seeds, fertilisers and pesticides without overlapping. This prevents double treatment and distances are automatically maintained.
Variable application with VariableRateControl (VRC)
If you transfer data with Task Doc, you can apply variable quantities as required and make your resources last longer. Task Doc for documentation is part of the latest solution in precision farming. The individual requirements for seeds, fertilisers and pesticides are shown on application maps, for retrieval and automatic release on the job.
Up to 7% more area coverage with front axle suspension
The self-levelling front axle suspension with 80mm suspension guarantees the best traction and increases your area coverage by up to 7%. The ever powerful Vario drive also delivers the best driving safety even on hillsides or with front loader use.
3 front power lift variants for precise adjustment and perfect traction
The power lift with vibration damping is available with position control as standard, or as a comfort front power lift with position and load relief control. This all helps optimise your feed quality. You drive the mower in a 'floating' fashion, with a support pressure defined in the terminal. It works at a constant height and follows the ground contour with precision. No need for conventional relief springs. The weight transferred from the implement to the front axle simultaneously increases traction and prevents drift on the hillside. Research studies confirm that this optimises the feed quality, as the raw ash content in the feed decreases and the sward is not pierced. For winter work with a snow plough, the constant field pressure control provides uniform clearing results.
The superior driving and working comfort of an HGV
The intelligent combination of three systems guarantees maximum ride and operating comfort: lockable front axle suspension with anti-roll control, cab suspension (choose from mechanical or pneumatic) and active shock load stabilising. This gives the front axle an even load and the steering control is maintained. Together with the sensitive Fendt Reaction steering for safe straight-ahead work, the 300 Vario offers truck-level driving and working comfort.
Easier attachment with da valve in the front panel
To make it easier to attach and detach front implements with their own hydraulics – like the hydraulic folding of side guards on front mowing units – the Fendt 300 Vario now has connections for a double-acting valve in the front cover.
Outstanding value retention
The superior value retention of a 300 is a solid building block for its overall economic efficiency because it costs less per hour/acre. Cutting edge solutions like these often come to market years later. Benefit: a real investment even after years.
