The Fendt 1000 Vario has highly-flexible ballast options. A range of front weights from 870 kg to max. 3300 kg are available, as well as wheel weights from 2 x 650 kg each up to 2 x 1250 kg.
The success factor for grip.
Fendt VarioGrip for the perfect tyre pressure
Due to their large diameter of up to 2.35 metres, the rear tyres on the Fendt 1000 Vario have a very large contact area, which has a positive impact on traction and therefore tractive power. This always includes having the right tyre pressure. With the integrated tyre pressure regulation system Fendt VarioGrip, the tyre pressure can be adjusted with a click in the Varioterminal. The tyres are inflated or deflated while you're on the move. Compared to working with unadjusted tyre pressure, you can achieve up to 10% more pulling power and cover up to 8% more area with up to 8% lower fuel consumption.* VarioGrip is available for flange and bar axles, and forms the basis for tyre pressure adjustment at the touch of a button, even with dual tyres.

Perfectly ballasted with the Fendt Grip Assistant
Besides the tyre pressure, the ballasting and working speed are also decisive for power transfer to the ground. The new solution is called: Fendt Grip Assistant. Fully integrated in the Varioterminal, this Assistant quickly determines the right tyre pressure, ideal ballast weight and driving speed. Depending on the implement or ballast of the tractor, the Grip Assistant recommends either front and wheel weights, or the optimal working speed.
The Grip Assistant recommends the right tyre pressure and ballasting for a defined speed when in Speed Select mode. In Ballast Select mode, the assistant recommends the ideal working speed as well as the optimal tyre pressure for a defined ballast.
Front axle suspension
The self-levelling independent wheel suspension on the Fendt 1000 Vario guarantees optimal ground contact of the front wheels under all conditions, and reliably prevents power-hopping for the ultimate in pulling power. Ride comfort and safety are also maintained when transporting at up to 60 km/h. The long suspension travel maintains ride comfort independent of the load. The driver can manually override the suspension travel, to use the easy ballast pickup without front power lift, for example. More benefits: The single wheel suspension is maintenance-free.
