Fendt VarioDrive

The heart and soul of every Fendt.

The revolutionary Fendt VarioDrive drivetrain from the Fendt 1000 Vario wheeled tractor has been extensively and optimally adapted for the Fendt 900 Vario MT. The result was the innovative and efficient continuously variable drive for tracked tractors, which fulfil all the practical requirements. As a result, you can drive in a continuously-variable power-split way in a speed range from 12.5 mph to 25 mph and without having to manually change between the speed ranges. You can therefore always work within an optimal speed range with minimum slippage when operating the Fendt 900 Vario MT. The VarioDrive CVT paired with Fendt iD, and the Mobil-trac system provide an operating experience like no other.

Reliably converts every drop of fuel into efficient power.

Fendt iD low engine speed concept

A powerful and highly efficient 7-cylinder AGCO Power engine sits under the hood of the Fendt 900 Vario MT. With a displacement of 9 liters, the engine generates up to 431 hp at a rated speed of just 1,700 rpm. Two in-line turbochargers with fixed geometry provide constant power generation. The max. torque of 1,416 lb-ft is already reached at just 1,450 rpm thanks to the Fendt iD low-speed concept. The speed range of the engine is between 1,000 and 1,700 rpm. The engine idle speed is just 800 rpm. Experience unbridled power and extremely efficient work during every use thanks to Fendt iD.

Unique cooling system:
Efficient cooling is ensured by the unique Fendt Fan and Concentric Air System (CAS) cooling concept. Here, a forced-draft high-performance fan is positioned in front of the cooler unit, where it pulls in cool dense air, accelerates it via the concentric hood and pushes it through the cooler. The CAS has its own hydrostatic drive, so it can always deliver ideal cooling power to each component according to need, independent of the engine speed. The fan is tilted upwards, which prevents crop residue from being drawn up from the ground.

Easy maintenance for long operating times:
Do not waste time on extensive maintenance. Take advantage of the long maintenance intervals and perfect accessibility. Fresh air is brought in at the front. The Venturi system of the air filter prevents many dust particles from getting further in. In addition, a dust extraction system, which is driven by the vacuum of the CAS, ensures that the air filter remains efficient for longer periods. A contamination sensor constantly monitors the status of the filter and reports upcoming maintenance if required. The constant further development of AGCO Power engines along with the low maintenance effort makes the Fendt 900 Vario MT a totally reliable workhorse.​

The Concentric Air System offers a large cooling capacity with maximum efficiency along with an unparalleled high efficiency.

The air filter is easy to replace and has a dirt sensor, which provides information on the filter effect.

High-performance hydrostatic devices

The heart of VarioDrive drivetrain is formed by the extremely large and powerful hydrostatic devices. They each boast a capacity of 370 cm3. The hydro-motors can swivel independent of each other. This way, the VarioDrive drivetrain achieves maximum efficiency in every situation. To further increase the efficiency, a hydro motor is decoupled at higher speeds (more than approx. 12.5 mph) as soon as it swivels back.

Automatic in optimal range

Thanks to the Fendt VarioDrive drive, you can always drive automatically within the most efficient range. The Fendt 900 Vario MT achieves a transport speed of 25 mph at a low 1,550 rpm. The renowned Tractor Management System (TMS) along with the automatic maximum load control ensures that the Fendt 900 Vario MT delivers the most efficient results every time, without you having to make any elaborate settings. Together with Fendt iD low engine speed concept, experience sheer power with lowest possible consumption.

Everything under one roof

It was never easier to control a tracked tractor to perfection. For the Fendt 900 Vario MT, the motto is: Sit down and go. Select your preferred driving mode in the armrest: Drive the Fendt 900 Vario MT using either the joystick or the accelerator pedal. In the process, the TMS maintains an optimal ratio of the rpm and driving speed. You can also set the rpm with the accelerator pedal and the driving speed using the joystick. If the TMS is deactivated, you can control the rpm and the driving speed absolutely independent of each other.​

High-performance hydrostatic devices in the Fendt VarioDrive ensure smooth acceleration and efficient jerk-free propulsion.

Attachments under complete control:
Matching the power and performance of the Fendt 900 Vario MT, the hydraulic system has also been developed for maximum performance. Select either 58 GPM or 116 GPM pump capacity. The bigger version has two separate circuits with 56 GPM capacity each. Both the versions deliver their maximum performance at 1,700 rpm. The highest extractable oil volume is 26.4 gallons. And the hydraulic oil supply is separate from the transmission oil. This avoids mixing the oil and causing system problems. The steering system has its own separate system. This means that there is enough oil at your disposal for the implement.

Connections at the rear​:
Both hydraulic pumps share the work perfectly; one of the pumps is directly coupled to the left valve block and supplies to valves 1-3 and the Power Beyond connection. The second supplies to the right valve block with valves 4-6 and the power lift. All in all, maximum six valves are possible in the rear. Stay flexible with exchangeable cartridges: the 1/2" couplings offer a flow rate of up to 37 GPM. The 3/4" coupling and easy Flat Face Coupler (FFC) allow up to 45 GPM. All the valves at the rear can be coupled under pressure on both sides (DUDK).

High capacity hitch:
You can attach three-point implements onto the Fendt 900 Vario MT just as comfortably as onto a wheeled tractor. The rear power lift has a 19,000 lb lift capacity. In addition to power, enjoy the greatest comfort: the rear power lift can be operated at both the rear fenders. Shock load stabilizing actively dampens when driving on the road contributing to high ride comfort and road safety. Gearbox pressure sensors are used for controlling the rear power lift. You can control the implement perfectly via the comfortable power lift module in the armrest.

Efficient PTO operation:
In order to transmit power of the AGCO Power engine to the PTO-operated attachments efficiently, the PTO is almost directly connected to the crankshaft. Only one gear level lies in between. This facilitates high effectiveness. Two speeds are at your disposal: The 1000 at 1,650 rpm or the 1000E at a favorable 1,255 rpm. The speed is pre-selected simply and without complication at the touch of a button in the cab. The PTO is similarly activated. Alternately, it can also be activated at both the rear fenders.
