The revolutionary thing about this gearbox is a variable all-wheel drive, applied with independently driven axles. The drive train works on a hydrostatic-mechanical distribution of power. The diesel engine drives the planetary set. The ring gear, in turn, drives the hydropump. The hydropump then supplies two hydromotors. One hydromotor for the front axle and one for the rear axle. The rear axle is also driven mechanically. Fendt VarioDrive provides permanent traction.
Drives your success – at full power.
Power distribution through Fendt Torque Distribution
The tractive power is decisive. You can only get the power to where it is needed by having permanent torque distribution between the front and rear axles. This is where Fendt Torque Distribution comes into play. The torque is distributed in a fraction of a second. If the front axle starts to slip, the smart-controlled all-wheel coupling automatically closes. The highlight of the variable all-wheel drive lies in the interaction of the rear axle and the front axle. A smart all-wheel clutch shifts the torque between the axles when needed. The torque is shifted to the gripping axle. If the rear wheels are not gripping, the torque is shifted to the front axle, and vice versa.
Tightest turning circle thanks to pull-in-turn
At the headland, Fendt VarioDrive makes all the
difference. The front wheel drive can actively pull the
tractor into the turn. This is the 'pull-in-turn' effect.
This reduces the turning circle by up to 10%. When you
turn a corner, the front wheels have to travel further
than the rear wheels. As the oil of the hydropump can
spread between both hydromotors, the speed on the
front wheels automatically increases.
Small turning radius thanks to the 'pull-in-turn' effect, e.g. 20 ft. for the Fendt 930 Vario with standard tires.
The requirements are as individual as the customer. Because there are almost no limits to customer requests, Fendt offers an extensive range of tire options. There's just one answer to 'maximum soil protection, with maximum power transmission' – it's Fendt VarioGrip. With Fendt VarioGrip, you can easily control the inner tire pressure from your cab while on the move. Less tire pressure increases the contact area of the tire. And with a bigger contact area, there is more tread on the ground and the weight of the vehicle is spread over a larger area. On the road, on the other hand, you need more inner tire pressure. This reduces rolling resistance and minimizes wear and tear on the tires. Compared to working on the field with unadjusted tire pressure, with VarioGrip you can achieve up to 10% more tractive power and cover up to 8% more area with up to 8% lower fuel consumption.*

Fendt Grip Assistant
Besides the tire pressure, the ballasting and working speed are also decisive for power transfer to the ground. The new solution is called: Fendt Grip Assistant. With the assistant, which is fully integrated in the Varioterminal, the right tire pressure and optimal ballast weight or driving speed can be determined quickly. Depending on the implement or ballast of the tractor, the Grip Assistant recommends either front and wheel weights, or the optimal working speed.
VarioGuide Contour Assistant
The VarioGuide Contour Assistant software option adds Contour Segments and Single Track to the familiar VarioGuide wayline types. This makes your field work even easier and more efficient.
Contour Segments wayline
Until now, drivers have had to record different waylines so they could work different sections of the same field. They also had to manually switch between the waylines as they worked. You can use the Contour Segments wayline to record each segment and wayline in a one-off circumnavigation of the field, or apply them directly from the existing field boundary. All relevant waylines are grouped into one unit. Contour Assistant automatically detects the right track.
Single Track wayline
Use Single Track to record an almost endless track with an open contour. You no longer need to automatically generate parallel tracks. This feature is ideal for plant protection, as you can record a single track and apply it to the whole field.
VariotronicTI headland management
With the VariotronicTI headland management system, you can apply any of your headland sequences at the touch of a button. You can store up to 25 implements. In combination with VarioGuide, VariotronicTI automatically detects the position and automatically initiates all the recorded steps at the headland.
