The higher the traction, the better the tractor transfers power to the ground. The result is high efficiency and less soil compaction. All of this already begins in the drive train.
The success factor for grip
The drive with grip
Perfect grip means power is always there where it is needed. With the new Fendt VarioDrive, this is achieved through intelligent torque distribution between the front and rear axles - Fendt Torque Distribution For example, if the front wheels slip, the intelligently controlled four-wheel clutch automatically closes. Torque is then automatically shifted to the rear axle, which has grip. And vice versa: If the rear wheels do not grip, the torque is shifted to the front axle. The operator does not notice a thing, except for the benefits of the intelligent torque distribution: namely continuous traction.
Fendt VarioGrip for the perfect tyre pressure
The Grip Assistant recommends the right tyre pressure and ballasting for adefined speed when in Speed Select mode. In Ballast Select mode, the assistantrecommends the ideal working speed as well as tyre pressure for a defined ballast.
Due to their large diameter of up to 2.35 metres, the rear tyres on the Fendt 1000 Vario have a very large contact area, which has a positive effect on traction and therefore pulling power. This always includes having the right tyre pressure. With the integrated tyre pressure regulation system Fendt VarioGrip, the tyre pressure can be adjusted with a click in the Varioterminal. Air is filled into or released from the tyres while driving. Compared to operations with unadjusted tyre pressures, you can achieve up to 10% more pulling power and cover up to 8% more area with up to 8% lower fuel consumption*.
Perfectly ballasted with the Fendt Grip Assistant
Besides the tyre pressure, the ballasting and working speed are also decisive for power transfer to the ground. The new solution is called: Fendt Grip Assistant. With the assistant, which is fully integrated in the Varioterminal, the right tyre pressure and optimal ballast weight or driving speed can be determined quickly. Depending on the implement or given ballasting situation of the tractor, the Grip Assistant recommends either front and wheel weights, or the optimal working speed.

The right tyre pressure is a topic that Fendt has been pursuing for a long time. Fendt receives this silver medal for an innovation, which also concerns the right traction: The Fendt Grip Assistant.

Front axle suspension
The self-levelling independent wheel suspension on the Fendt 1000 Vario guarantees optimal ground contact of the front wheels under all conditions and reliably revents power-hopping for the best pulling power. Ride comfort and safety also are maintained at transport speeds up to 60 km/h. The long suspension travel maintains ride comfort independent of the load. Operators can travel through the suspension manually, for example, when picking up weight without a front lift with the comfort ballast pick-up feature. A further benefit: The single wheel suspension is maintenancefree
The Fendt 1000 Vario has highly flexible ballasting options. Diverse front weights from 870 kg to max. 3300 kg are available.
Front weight 3,300 kg
Front weight 2,500 kg
Front weight 1,800 kg
Front weight 1,250 kg
Front weight 870 kg
Wheel weights from the 1000 Vario
The Fendt 1000 Vario has highly flexible ballasting options.. Diverse weights from 2 x 650 kg each up to 2 x 1250 kg are available
Wheel weight 1,250 kg
Wheel weight 1,000 kg
Wheel weight 650 kg
Multiple tyres for healthy soil
The strong axles of the Fendt 1000 Vario are designed for twin, or even triple*, tyres. This doubles or triples the contact area and distributes the weight ideally – that is not only a benefit for the soil.
