VisioPlus cab

Visibility without limitations

The Fendt VisioPlus cab with its unique glazed areas sets the benchmark for overview and visibility. The interior has impressive high-quality workmanship. As is typical for Fendt, the controls are logically placed and well thought-out and the Vario is easy to control. A first-class workplace..

360° view

The ideal operator environment

Work is a pleasure in the new Fendt VisioPlus cab, because it is a miracle in visibility and spaciousness. The windscreen curves up into the roof and provides a full view of the raised front loader. More room and nearly six square metres of glazing make the cab feel very spacious. The ergonomic, intelligent operating interface and the high-quality workmanship, provide you with the convenience and comfort that substantially increase your performance.

Open or closed?

The new front windscreen on the VisioPlus cab is a true plus in visibility. The curved top of the window has tripled the upward view angle. The downward sightlines through the front windscreen and the waisted bonnet have been optimized for an ideal view to the front linkage. The front window of the new Fendt 500 Vario is offered in two variants: the first variant is the familiar opening window and doors on the right and left-hand sides. If you prefer an absolutely unobstructed view, we recommend the second standard version with a continuous front windscreen and a door on the left side.

All-round visibility: front, sides and rear

The upward viewing angle has been tripled. The downward sight lines have also been optimized and it is easy to see into the wheel arches.




The models in the 500 Vario series offer outstanding all-round visibility. The front window and right window panes are available in a one-piece version as standard for an optimum view to mounted implements. A version with an opening front windscreen and right door is also available.

The cockpit is positioned in the cab in such a way as to optimise visibility to the front and rear. The components at the front and rear are also arranged so that visibility is not impaired, for example, the hydraulic control block for the rear valves is positioned on the right under the cab. Furthermore, the window dips down low, which permits an excellent view to the lower link hooks and the linkage.

    Windscreen wipers with intermittent wipe function

    The segment wipers can be set to intervals, like in passenger cars, and clean the front window reliably. The exclusive parallel wiper offers optimum wiping characteristics. The spray nozzles, which are located on the wiper arm, ensure that the front and rear windows are well-cleaned.

    Opaque roller shade

    The opaque roller shade in the front serves as a glare shield when the sun shines low. What's special: It is tailored to the curved shape of the front windscreen and covers the complete width of the window. Furthermore, it holds in any position and disappears completely in the roof liner when it is no longer needed.

Better overview with wide-angle mirror

The optional wide-angle mirror expands the field of vision. You have a better overview of things that are happening on the sides of the tractor. The hazard zone, which is usually located in the blind spot, is easier to see into and unforeseen situations can be avoided.

Pivoting multi-function display

The dashboard, i.e. the multi-function armrest, pivots along with the steering wheel, when it is adjusted. It is therefore always in the best ergonomic position for the driver and always in full view.

Ergonomics as never before

When developing the 500 Vario, special emphasis was placed on the ergonomic design of the operator environment. All operating functions have been optimally placed on the right armrest, which moves along with the driver seat, and in the new Varioterminal. The steering wheel is height and tilt adjustable. The instrument cluster swings along with it and is therefore always in an ideal position. Air-conditioning is standard and automatic climate control is available as an option.

Tidy and straightforward

The air-conditioning, radio, tachograph and VarioGuide guidance are neatly installed in the roof liner. The devices are perfectly positioned so they do not impair visibility. Devices can also be easily retrofitted.

Integral cable lead-through

Fendt offers a clever solution for cables that run from the rear of the tractor into the cab. Cables can be guided through the lead-through, no matter what kind of cross section they have. The rear window can be closed, so dust, dirt, water and noise stay outside.

Plenty of storage options

In a Fendt cab you will find many different stowage spaces and compartments, so that everything has its place. For example, three stretch nets, which can be reached from the ground, stowage compartments around the driver seat as well as a bottle holder.

Stretch nets can be reached from the ground

The stretch nets under the passenger seat in the front of the cab are positioned so that they can be reached from the ground – operators do not need to climb up into the cab to get things out of them.

Cooling compartment

There is space for a meal and a cool drink in the air-conditioned cooling compartment for long work days.

Passenger seat

Passengers find a comfortable passenger seat in the VisioPlus cab.

Ride comfort thanks to cab suspension


The pneumatic cab suspension reduces vibrations to a minimum and provides high ride comfort. It is supported on four points with integrated self-leveling: the cab rests on two conic bearings at the front and on two air spring elements at the rear.

    Fendt super comfort seat Evolution dynamic

    In addition to the features of the super comfort seat, the top high-tech version of the seat also offers lateral horizontal damping, climate control and dynamic damping. This reduces operator fatigue during long periods of work.

Fendt Varioterminal

A step ahead through innovation

The Fendt Variotronic, with its many benefits, has already caused a stir in the Fendt high-horsepower tractors. Now the modern operating concept has also been integrated in the 500 Vario. The large 10.4“ Varioterminal and the 7“ Varioterminal are distinguished by their user-friendly menus and practical touch technology.

Flat menu hierarchy and everything in view

Thanks to the flat menu hierarchy and the clutter-free display, operators can learn to use the Varioterminal quickly and always have everything in view. The high-resolution scratch-resistant screen and all function indicators automatically adapt to ambient light conditions. Optimal day and night viewing modes significantly reduce strain on the driver's eyes. The components of the Varioterminal are manufactured according to the motto “Made in Germany”, so that you can be sure you are getting high quality, reliable electronics with the best workmanship.

Finally, all functions in one terminal

The Fendt Variotronic is unique in that all functions are united together in one terminal: tractor and implement controls, camera functions as well as the documentation and automatic steering system are completely integrated in the 10.4” Varioterminal and can be operated using the same operating logic. That saves you the cost for additional terminals. For standard farming requirements, Fendt offers the 7” Varioterminal.

The Fendt Variotronic controls

The operating elements on the right-hand armrest – comprising the Varioterminal, multi-function joystick, crossgate lever and membrane keypad – have a well-balanced overall design and form an ergonomic command centre where everything is under control.

Terminal Simulation

Using the Terminal Simulator, you can test all the functions and see for yourself how easy it is to navigate the menus in the new Fendt Variotronic.

The ideal controls





Varioterminal 7“

With a 7-inch screen diagonal, the 7" Varioterminal is a handy and functional companion for tractor operations and Variotronic implement control.




Varioterminal 10,4”

The 10.4” Varioterminal fulfils all operator wishes. Now, in addition to the tractor operations and Variotronic implement control, the external cameras, the new Fendt VarioGuide automatic steering system and the VarioDoc documentation system can be controlled with just one terminal.




Control via keys or touch

You can easily change menu settings in the Varioterminal by either touching the screen or pushing the navigation buttons. You can navigate through the menus using either the keys or the touchscreen. The tractor controls on both terminals are identical.

    Camera view

    The large 10.4” Varioterminal provides up to two camera connections. The use of cameras significantly increases comfort and safety. The camera at the rear of the tractor can be set up to be activated automatically when reversing and the image can be displayed in the terminal.

Fendt VariotronicTI

During turning manoeuvres at the headland, operators usually have to change between different controls, sometimes up to 12 times. In the 500 Vario it is not necessary to change controls, because the right armrest is the central operating control. Operators can rest their arm on it and control the tractor and implement using the multi-function joystick and Varioterminal. The linkage control module next to the crossgate lever controls the quick lift switch, depth control and front and rear PTO engagement. Thanks to headland management, standard on the 500 Vario, operating errors during turning manoeuvres are a thing of the past. With just a touch of a button, operators can activate automated operating sequences at the headlands. To optimise the sequence of the steps, they can also be edited and adjusted individually when the tractor is at a standstill. On a 10-hour day with some 160 turning manoeuvres, that can save operators up to 1,920 hand movements.

1,920 hand movements less per day

With VariotronicTI headland management, operators can create and save operating sequences while driving or standing still. More than 20 steps can be programmed according to the sequence listed below. The sequence is displayed along with the triggers, such as time or distance. Individual steps can be edited at a later time.

Documentation and variable application rate with VarioDoc and VRC

The new solution for precision farming, variable rate control function (Vrc), is now available in combination with Variodoc Pro. The need for operating inputs, such as seeds, fertilizer or pesticides, is shown on application maps, which can be called up during operation and automatically executed. The big advantage: operating inputs can be defined and planned in the field database and then applied with utmost precision.

The data from the field is saved in the field database by VarioDoc. VarioDoc Pro adds recording of GPS position data and data transfer in near real-time.

VarioDoc

The new Fendt VarioGuide guidance system

With Fendt VarioGuide you can drive reliably and accurately without actively steering, even in difficult reception conditions. With the new version of Fendt VarioGuide, you can choose from the GNSS receiver NovAtel® or Trimble®. A number of correction signals are supported, depending on the receiver, for example, EGNOS/WAAS or also RangePoint™ RTX, CenterPoint™ RTX™, Ntrip. Existing Trimble® RTK infrastructures, such as Ntrip can continue to be used. Even without a correction signal, VarioGuide works reliably for up to 20 minutes with RTK accuracy via Trimble® xFill™ technology.

VarioGuide

SectionControl guarantees that there is no overlapping

With the fully automatic Sectioncontrol, you can always plant seeds, spread fertilizer or apply pesticides precisely in the right spot. This prevents double treatment and distances are automatically maintained. With the aid of the Sectioncontrol assistant, you can set the correction values for each implement quickly and easily. The switch on and off points are set precisely from the very beginning, which automatically results in economical application.

The VariotronicTI headland management saves all the procedures when performing a turning maneuver. VariotronicTI automatic triggers the sequences precisely at the right place.
