For the new Fendt 1000 Vario series, AGCO/Fendt set an exceptional goal: to develop a completely new standard tractor in a power range not yet occupied worldwide, 400-500 hp, that is compact, agile and versatile, and also extremely power and fuel-efficient. To achieve this result, a completely new development along with an entirely new approach was required. The Fendt 1000 Vario is the first standard tractor worldwide with the comprehensive low engine speed design “Fendt iD” and the “Fendt VarioDrive” drive technology.
The new Fendt 1000 Vario, with 4 models (1038 Vario, 1042 Vario, 1046 Vario, 1050 Vario), is a compact standard high-horsepower tractor ranging from 380 – 500 hp (according to ECE R24) and is still versatile in use, for example for transport work (60 km/h) or heavy PTO work such as chopping wood.
The low unladen weight of only 14 tonnes makes it predestined for work requiring low ground pressure, such as seeding. Thanks to its flexible ballasting concept, the vehicle can be ballasted according to need with up to 50 percent of its base weight. With its modular equipment options, with/without rear linkage or rear PTO, and the large number of hydraulic, hitch and linkage variants, it is compatible with all conventional implements, even those of previous high-horsepower tractors. The Fendt 1000 Vario was designed for the heaviest draft work, which was primarily reserved for articulated, tracked and system tractors up to now.
The Fendt 1000 Vario is the first standard high-horsepower tractor with the comprehensive low engine speed concept, Fendt iD. All vehicle components (engine, transmission, fan, hydraulics and other consumers) were perfectly coordinated with each other during development and designed according to the so-called “high torque – low engine speed” principle to minimise specific fuel consumption. The high-horsepower tractor is equipped with a compact MAN six-cylinder engine with a 12.4 litre displacement and VTG turbocharger. The VTG turbocharger ensures dynamic performance and high torque in the lower speed range. These power reserves make a significant contribution to the realisation of the Fendt iD concept. The maximum torque of up to 2400 Nm lies at only 1100 rpm for the Fendt 1050 Vario.
The powerful, quiet engine is combined with a completely new stepless drive concept, the VarioDrive. The engine and transmission were already designed and optimised for each other during the development of the tractor.
