The new Fendt 900 Vario was designed for heavy traction work on every field across the world. With its popular flange or bar axle, it offers a variety of different tyre combinations, especially in Europe. But in order to meet global requirements, there is also a 60" track variant for the new series. This means that the high-power tractor can be used for row-crop applications, especially in North America. The front axle, designed to fully power the tractor, has been further developed. Maintenance-free double wishbone axles provide for hydropneumatic single-wheel suspension.
As we already know, the VarioGrip tyre pressure regulation system, fully integrated by Fendt, is also available as an option for the new 900-series. What is unique, though, is that you can also adjust the tyre pressure for twin tyres from the comfort of the cab on the row-crop model, by integrating it with the vehicle's valve and air guidance technology. Even while driving.
If certain parameters are preset for one type of job, the Fendt Grip Assistant, now offered for the first time for the 900-series, supports the driver in the Varioterminal – either determining the ideal ballast and the right tyre pressure at a pre-defined speed, or it can determine the best possible working speed and optimal tyre pressure if the ballast on the tractor is already fixed.
To bring the power to the ground, transfer traction and increase the footprint, a new large tyre has been specially developed for the new 900-series, with a maximum diameter of 2.20 m (750/70R44).
