The 500 Vario brings together the best ideals in a completely new tractor series. The dimensions of the legendary 500 Favorit, paired with an award-winning design, are visible signs of the technical progress. The combination of up to 165 hp maximum output with fuel-saving SCR technology brings high efficiency to a new performance class. The ideal features of the Fendt high-horsepower tractors – the unique VisioPlus cab and the Variotronic – are now also found in the new 500 Vario. That is ideal, through and through
High-tech through innovative power
A Fendt Vario is high-tech through and through. Innovations, such as the unique Vario transmission for stepless, highly efficient work, the precise control via joystick and terminal or the perfected visibility, as found in the VisioPlus cab, ensure outstanding operating and working quality.
Premium workmanship Made in Germany
The Fendt tractors are developed, designed and produced in the world’s most modern tractor factory network at the locations in Bavaria. The use of durable, high-quality components guarantees maximum quality and the high reliability of the tractors is a matter of fact at Fendt.
Efficiency and economy as a maxim
The focus at Fendt is to promote customers’ success with highly efficient and economic products. A decisive factor here is keeping fuel consumption as low as possible – this is absolutely convincing at Fendt.
Calculated to the end
The high quality, forward-looking technology and high efficiency found in Fendt tractors prove to be special benefits at the end of their service life. Because these characteristics are what give Fendt tractors an unbeatably high resale value. In the total cost calculation, Fendt therefore offers low operating costs per hour.
The maximum output of the 500 Vario ranges from 125 up to 165 hp. For this new series, Fendt exhaust gas recirculation (AGRex), Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) and a Coated Soot Filter (CSF) diesel particulate filter for compliance with emissions with emissions stage Tier 4 final/Stage 4. On the Fendt high-horsepower tractors, this drive train – the engine together and the Vario transmission – has already proven itself to be extremely economical.
SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) for exhaust gas after-treatment
With SCR technology, exhaust is after-treated with Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF), a 32.5 percent solution of urea, which converts nitrous oxides NOx into non-toxic nitrogen and water. The consumption of DEF, the standard urea-water solution used by commercial vehicles, lies at an average of seven percent of the diesel consumption. This can vary depending on the operation. DEF is available at most gas stations or through AGCO Parts.
Powerful hydraulic system
The hydraulic system features modern load-sensing technology. Delivery capacities of 29 gpm (110 l/min) or 42 gpm (158 l/min) are possible as an option. The separate transmission and hydraulic oil supplies prevent oil mixing and contamination in the transmission. Furthermore, bio-hydraulics oils can be used.
Powerful lift at the rear
The electrohydraulic rear linkage has a maximum lift capacity of 15,000 lbs (6,803 kg). The newest load compensating rear linkage means a great gain in comfort, because it automatically maintains the set lowering speed, for heavy as well as lightweight implements.
Intelligent control at the front
The maximum lift capacity at the front is 5,423 lbs (2,460 kg). The comfort front linkage has optional load relief control, which can be adjusted using the Varioterminal. It uses the double-acting front linkage valve to lower the implement and transfers the weight of the implement to the front axle. This is a particular advantage when operating a snow plough or a front mower in grassland operations, since implement guidance can be quickly adjusted to uneven surfaces. Relief springs for the mower are no longer required.
The ideal operator environment
Work is a pleasure in the new Fendt VisioPlus cab, because it is a miracle in visibility and spaciousness. The windscreen curves up into the roof and provides a full view of the raised front loader. More room and nearly six square metres of glazing make the cab feel very spacious. The ergonomic, intelligent operating interface and the high-quality workmanship, provide you with the convenience and comfort that substantially increase your performance.
The new front windscreen on the VisioPlus cab is a true plus in visibility. The curved top of the window has tripled the upward view angle. The downward sightlines through the front windscreen and the waisted bonnet have been optimized for an ideal view to the front linkage. The front window of the new Fendt 500 Vario is offered in two variants: the first variant is the familiar opening window and doors on the right and left-hand sides. If you prefer an absolutely unobstructed view, we recommend the second standard version with a continuous front windscreen and a door on the left.
