AGCO Corporation has launched the Fendt® 900 Vario® MT Series track tractors.
“We’re excited to bring the Fendt track tractors to producers throughout North America,” says Tom Turner, strategic marketing manager at AGCO. “The 900 Vario MT tractors exemplify Fendt’s legacy of reliability with the efficiency, ride comfort and power producers require to get big jobs done day after day.”
The Fendt 900 Vario MT is available in three models from 380 to 431 horsepower, powered by AGCO Power™ 9.8-liter diesel engines equipped with concentric air systems (CAS) for efficiency-enhancing cooling and enhanced engine life. The tractors feature the convenience and smooth, seamless speed control of the Fendt VarioDrive™ continuously variable transmission (CVT), combined with Fendt iD™ low-rev engine operating technology that delivers 1,500 foot-pounds of torque at 1,100 rpm, for maximum torque and great fuel efficiency.
As with all Fendt products, the 900 Vario MT tractors are backed by the Gold Star Customer Care warranty and maintenance program to provide customers with reliable uptime. This warranty isn’t just a matter of pride; it is part of the Fendt legacy that began 400 years ago when the Fendt family began fabricating precision clocks that were each personally serviced and maintained.
Fendt 900 Vario MT tractors are designed to operate with optimum efficiency. All systems, including the hydraulics and 2-speed PTO, run at lower engine rpm for lower fuel costs and reduced engine wear.
Fendt 900 Vario MT tractors are equipped with a standard Category 3/4N three-point hitch with 19,000-pound lift capacity and a 2-speed 1000 and 1000E PTO shaft. The tractors offer standard gauge settings from 72 to 88 inches, wide-gauge settings of 72 to 120 inches and three track styles in six widths from 16 to 34 inches.
AGCO’s patented Mobil-trac™ system (MTS), designed with a long wheelbase for more stability, is renowned for delivering power to the ground, setting the 900 Vario MT Series apart from other track tractors in the industry. The steel hardbar acts as a front axle, attaching to the forward point of the roller frame and providing up to 11 degrees of oscillation, to improve ride and minimize compaction.
“Operators receive a noticeably different level of ride comfort when operating the 900 Vario MT tractors, especially over terraces and rough field surfaces,” Turner says. “The Smart Ride™ system combines oscillating midwheels, hardbar suspension and cab suspension, giving operators great ride quality without sacrificing the in-field benefits of power, control and traction. The tractors also handle well at the maximum road speed of 25 mph, and ride comfort on the road is noticeably better than other track tractors.”
Engineered for operator convenience and productivity, the Fendt 900 VARIO MT tractors feature an easy-to-use 10.4-inch touchscreen Varioterminal™ that has an intuitive, smartphone feel. Using the Varioterminal, operators can easily manage all tractor settings and adjustments, plus monitor and control ISOBUS 11783-compatible implements, camera functions, field documentation, variable rate applications, guidance and wireless data transfer, and headland management. The Varioterminal, joystick, PTO controls and conveniently color-coded keypad put all tasks and functions within easy reach of the operator’s fingertips, for faster operation and less operator distraction and fatigue.
