New 900-series Fendt a popular high-powered tractor


The new top model Fendt 942 Vario will be on display at the Henty Machinery Field Days.

With the new Fendt 900 Vario large tractor series, Fendt is launching an all-new innovation setting new standards in the top performance class.

The new models are tailored to the individual requirements of large farms and contractors world-wide.

Numerous technical highlights, an extensive connectivity package, the relatively low weight and the powerful new design enable worldwide and versatile use.

With its five models (930 Vario, 933 Vario, 936 Vario, 939 Vario and 942 Vario), the new Fendt 900 Vario sits in the power range of 296 to 415hp in the compact high-power tractor class, slotting neatly into the power range between the Fendt 800 Vario and the 1000 Vario.

The new top model Fendt 942 Vario sees the 900-series venture beyond 400hp for the first time and Henty Machinery Field Days visitors will be able to experience the tractor first hand.

As a popular all-round high-power tractor, the new 900-series generation is versatile in its use.

Made for heavy tractive or PTO work like mulching, the 900-series is also suitable for transport at up to 60km/hr.

The low unladen weight of just 11.7 tonnes and the integrated VarioGrip tyre pressure regulation system makes this series ideal for work with low ground pressure and high tractive power.

Thanks to its modular equipment with or without rear power lift, rear PTO, front PTO, reversing driver station and a range of hydraulic, attachment and power lift models, it is compatible with all common attachments.

All models in the new 900-series are equipped with an all-new MAN six-cylinder engine designed for Fendt, with a cubic capacity of nine litres and VTG turbocharger with variable turbine geometry.

The change interval for the M3677 engine oil has gone up to an unprecedented 1000 hours.

The Fendt VarioDrive powertrain builds up together with the perfectly aligned TA 300 Vario transmission.

The Fendt iD low speed concept, geared towards high power reserves, is used in the 900-series for the first time. The nominal engine speed is 1700 rpm.

The Fendt reaches a top speed of 60 km/h at a fuel-saving 1450 rpm, 50 km/h at 1200rpm and at 40km/h the engine speed is just 950 rpm.

With the new Fendt 900-series Vario comes a new class of cab, the Fendt Life Cab, introducing the latest connectivity to display machine data from the 900 Vario in real time.

With the basic ready telemetry package, it has all the hardware needed to capture and send on the data for a variety of new services.

Smart Connect is a service for the driver in the tractor – the driver connects an iPad to the Fendt 900 Vario via the machine’s internal WiFi.

Machine parameters, such as the tractor position, the worked area, speed, fuel consumption and engine load, are sent straight to the tablet during use.

The display can be plotted on a map or as a graphical sequence for the last 60 minutes.

The tablet’s screen serves as an additional display area for the successful Varioterminal.

Smart Connect assists the driver to show information that is purely for control purposes, and comes as standard on all ProfiPlus models.

The new Fendt 900 Vario was designed for heavy traction work on every field across the world.

With its popular flange or bar axle, it also offers a 60” track variant for row crop applications.

If certain parameters are pre-set for one type of job, the Fendt Grip Assistant, now offered for the first time for the 900-series, supports the driver in the Varioterminal.

It either determines the ideal ballast and the right tyre pressure at a pre-defined speed, or the best possible working speed and optimal tyre pressure if the ballast on the tractor is already fixed.

To bring the power to the ground, transfer traction and increase the footprint, a new large tyre has been specially developed for the new 900-series with a maximum diameter of 2.2m.

At the customer’s request, a new extendible multi-functional tool compartment was built on the right hand side of the 900 Vario.

An individual storage solution for the driver, there is room for a pull-out toolbox or a washing box with a 12-litre water tank.
