One Purpose. All Purpose.

Fendt 1000 Vario harnesses its power. Its large tires, intelligent ballasting and tire pressure assistant as well as unique, variable four-wheel drive deliver the right amount of traction in any situation – along with outstanding maneuverability. And it is powerful for more than draft work.


High power – low fuel consumption. Fendt iD.

Low engine speed concept Fendt iD

The Fendt 1000 Vario always runs within the maximum torque range for the lowest specific fuel consumption, which means that high power is already delivered at low engine speeds. “High torque, low engine speed” is the system according to which all vehicle components such as engine, gearbox, fan, hydraulics and all auxiliary units are tailored to suit the ideal engine speed.

Fendt VarioDrive

The way Fendt iD works

The entire drive train of the Fendt 1000 Vario works at an economic optimum. The high-capacity engines with VTG turbocharger unfold their enormous power potential efficiently at low engine speeds. The transmission and variable four-wheel drive ensure ideal power distribution within the optimal consumption range. The Concentric Air System (CAS) cooling concept, with high performance fan, cools all heat exchangers according to need and boosts overall efficiency. All consumers, such as the air-conditioning, air compressor or alternator, are coordinated for low wear through low engine speeds.

High torque – low fuel consumption

The Fendt iD low engine speed concept results in permanently low fuel consumption and an extended service life. The speed band of the Fendt 1000 Vario ranges from 650 rpm to 1700 rpm. In the main working range, the speeds range from 1100 to 1500 rpm, which

is gentle on the components and lowers consumption. The engine in the Fendt 1050 Vario already delivers an impressive 2400 Nm of torque at 1100 rpm.


Most powerful standard tractor with maximum adaptability

The Fendt 1000 Vario offers an unprecedented range of adaptability. As a result of its impressive horsepower and its quick and easy ballast capability, the 1000 series can adapt itself from lighter row crop applications to heavy tillage and draft load applications.

  • New power segment 380 – 517 HP
  • 31,000 lb. unladen weight, max ballasted weight of 46,250 lbs.
  • Max Road Speed of 31 MPH/50 KPH

* Figure depends on country-specific legal requirements.

The 500 hp segment

Up to now, no other standard tractor has similarly high horsepower with optimum traction. With a constant power output of 380 to 500 hp, the Fendt 1000 Vario is predestined for heavy draft work.

No weight problem

With an unladen weight of 30,864 lb (14,000 kg) , the Fendt 1000 Vario brings a comparatively low weight on the ground. It is designed for a weight of 50,706 lb (23,000 kg) in field operations. On the road, the Fendt 1000 Vario drives up to 31 mph (50 km/h)*.

* Value depends on country-specific, legal regulations

Fast and economical

With a top speed of 31 mph (50 km/h), you get from A to B quickly with the Fendt 1000 Vario. Its low engine speed range for transport is impressive: it already reaches 25 mph (40 km/h) at 950 rpm.

Multiple tires for healthy soil

The strong axles of the Fendt 1000 Vario are designed for dual, or even triple, tires. This doubles or triples* the contact area and distributes the weight ideally – that is not only a benefit for the soil.
* Depends on country variant

Different track widths, countless operations

A tractor that is so versatile that it does more than one track width. In markets with row cultures, it is even available with a 60 inch (1.5 m) track width*. Good to know: even when using a narrower track, the reverse drive can still be used just as well as with the full track width.
* Depends on country variant

Optional rear PTO

The Fendt 1000 Vario is available with or without a rear PTO – depending on its area of application.
The two-speed PTO, with the speeds 1000 and 1000E, enables ideal power transmission.

Power lift for front and rear

The Fendt 1000 Vario is available with or without a power lift at the front or rear. There is plenty of lift capacity available: up to 12,553 lb (5,693 kg) on the three-point rear power lift The lower links can be folded up into parking position, so there is additional space for the drawbar – and is another plus for excellent maneuverability.

Hitching made easy

From the Adjustable Swinging Drawbar to the comfort ballast pick-up, with the Fendt 1000 Vario, you can pick up weights and implements in different ways.The Fendt 1000 Vario can be fitted with a Category 4N 3-Point Hitch with sway block stabilizers.

Work in reverse with the reversing driver station

The reverse drive has already proven itself, especially in forestry operations with a chipper. Full comfort is maintained: because the entire driver station of the Fendt 1000 Vario can simply be turned around 180° – and with it all the operating elements such as the steering wheel and the entire armrest. The comfort passenger seat remains useable. The rear window is heated, which means clear visibility towards the rear.

The first impression counts, the second makes the difference

The perfect combination of state-of-the-art controls and comfort is called Fendt Life Cab. This already becomes apparent when first entering the cab of the Fendt 1000 Vario, because the newly designed Life Cab combines the highest grade materials with the tried and tested arrangement and practicality of all elements. The new experience of space and sight is complemented by the many small things that make daily work more pleasant.
