The success factor for grip.
Fendt VarioGrip for the perfect tire pressure
Due to their large diameter of up to 91.4 inches, the rear tires 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 tire pressure. With the integrated tire pressure regulation system, Fendt VarioGrip, the tire pressure can be adjusted with a click in the Varioterminal. The tires are inflated or deflated while you're on the move. Compared to working with unadjusted tire 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 tire pressure adjustment at the touch of a button, even with dual tires.

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 31 mph. 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.
