Fendt 200 Vario V/F/P
The Fendt 200 Vario range has been designed to give maximum ride and operator comfort along with taking optimum efficiency in mind. They are also the first and only narrow tractors with a full stepless transmission on the market.
This range of tractors is available in three width versions as with previous ranges: a narrow ‘V’ to suit vineyards and orchards, starting at an overall width of 1070mm, a medium width ‘F’ for orchards on wider spacings and then a wide ‘P’ for wide orchards and hops. Models are available from 70 to 110 horsepower with four wheel drive.
The Vario stepless transmission is a fantastic tool and allows working speeds from 200 metres per hour to 40 kilometres per hour totally smoothly and without jerking. The joystick is a break from traditional levers but is easily got to grips with. You can program the ‘cruise control’ with forward speed and rpm so with one press of a button everything is set to work up the row pulverising, spraying or hoeing etc. With this one joystick you are able to carry out many operations that would previously have required multiple levers.
The overall profitability of a tractor is important and fuel consumption plays a crucial role here. With the Vario transmission, it is easy to always drive the tractor at an economical optimum, which greatly reduces fuel consumption. The 40 km/hr top speed is achieved at a fuel-saving 1750 rpm.
The savings potential of the continuously variable transmission is clearly noticeable. As well as profiting from lower fuel consumption you can save valuable working time.
