The Vario series is convincing with its versatility, reliability and exceptional value stability. Anyone who has ever experienced a Fendt 200 Vario, does not want to miss its benefits – both out on the field and on the books. The current series is entering its final sales season before the next generation arrives. So it's well worth a closer look at this treasured and stably Fendt series.
Five reasons why you should secure yourself a Fendt 200 Vario, while you still can
With more than 12,000 units sold, the 200 Vario Standard has been astounding farmers for 11 years – wherever compact conditions in terms of low height, manoeuvrability and weight are key factors. Whether grassland farming, in Alpine conditions or for farmyard or front-loader work.
The Fendt 200 Vario will make quite an impact on your farm! Get ready to be impressed:
1. Benefit from the Vario's added boost
Independent publications* 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 50 ha forage farm*, that's up to 34 working hours a year. Additional 6,500 litres of diesel are saved in 5,000 operating hours.
In terms of cash benefits with the continuous system, that's over €12,000**!

**Our own calculations based on: 100 hp tractor, 500 operating hours per year – runtime of 10 years and 5,000 operating hours; average consumption 11 litres of diesel / operating hour;
***Saved operating costs: rental costs for a 100 hp tractor – €16.50/operating hour*** – 340 operating hours = €5,610/5,000 operating hours; (machinery syndicate rates for 100 hp – https://www.mr-bayreuth.de/images/inhalte/ verrechnungsheft2018.pdf;
2. Premium quality for outstanding value stability
A glance at the current used machinery market and independent reviews in Agrartechnik (3/2020) confirms the unique value stability of a Fendt as a sought-after and highly valued machine. A safe investment with premium quality and future-proof technology as a real asset.
3. Level-controlled front axle suspension for more area output and driving comfort
The level-controlled front axle suspension with anti-roll control guarantees with permanent ground contact the best traction and increases your area output up to 7%. Due to the built-in anti-roll control, driving is perfectly safe and comfortable even on hillsides or with front-loader use.
4. Incredibly manoeuvrable and lightweight, slope-proof by its low centre of gravity.
Dimensions to get excited about: the 200-series with wasp waist starts under an unladen weight of 3.9 tonnes, a minimum height of 2.46 metres and a turning circle of just 9.35 metres. The 200-series wins wherever narrow conditions and precision are key factors; whether front-loader use, work in alpine conditions or soil-friendly crop care.
5. VarioActive halves the steering wheel rotations
With the VarioActive superimposed steering system, you can reach the full steering angle with half the turns, which pays off at front-loader work and in the farmyard, as well as on headlands.
