Fendt Announces an Upgrade of the 300 Vario Range

With its quality, reliability and ease of operation, the 300 Vario range from Fendt has found many enthusiastic users since 2006.

The new 300 Vario tractors are powered by a 4.04-litre 4-cylinder Deutz engine with four-valve technology and a 1,600-bar common rail high-pressure injection system.

Excellent fuel economy and high performance

The new 300 Vario range has been expanded upwards with a new top model, the 313 Vario with a maximum output of 135 hp, and now covers the power range from 95 to 135 hp. The new 300 Vario tractors are powered by a 4.04-litre 4-cylinder Deutz engine with four-valve technology and a 1,600-bar common rail high-pressure injection system. The electronic engine control EDC 17, the turbocharger with electronic wastegate and the viscous fan have been adopted from the high-horsepower tractor ranges and are standard on the 300 Vario.

For the new 300 Vario range, Fendt also relies on the fuel-saving SCR technology for compliance with emissions standard Euro 3b (Tier IV interim). This technology, familiar from the 700, 800 and 900 Vario high-horsepower tractors, has already impressively proven its superior fuel economy in neutral PowerMix tests. The high effectiveness of the time-tested Vario transmission ML 75 ensures an efficient drive train. Thanks to infinitely variable speed adjustment from 20 metres to 40 kilometres per hour, the 300 Vario is predestined for versatile applications, starting from specialty crop or row crop work, to grassland operations and arable farming, to classic work as a farmyard tractor

The TMS tractor management system is now standard in the 300 Series and ensures extremely economical driving, automatically.

Easy handling combined with state-of-the-art technology

The operating concept on the 300 Vario unites easy handling with state-of-the-art technology. All operating elements are centrally located on the steering column and the right-hand console. New in this performance class is the on-board computer, which displays important information on area coverage and time. The single-gate Vario-Stick unites the main gearshift lever, the group gears, the powershift stages and the controls for the super crawler gearbox into one operating element. In view of ergonomics, it is ideally placed on the right-hand console.

The new 300 Vario range is equipped with a comprehensive lighting system, which maximises working comfort at night; Xenon lights are available as an option. The wide-angle mirror (optional) extends the operator's field of vision and thus ensures greater safety.

Extra refinements

The brakes have been refined, allowing the permissible gross weight to be increased from 8 tonnes on the previous model to 8.5 tonnes. In combination with a low unladen weight of 4,230 kg (309 Vario), this amounts to a maximum payload of 4,270 kg and a weight-to-power ratio of only 33 kg/hp (313 Vario).

The hydraulics have been redesigned, in particular the rear lift. It now has a lifting capacity of nearly six tonnes (5960 daN) and can therefore lift over a half a tonne more than its predecessor. Thanks to the new tandem hydraulic pump, the oil delivery capacity has been increased from 78 to 83 litres.

The improved steering lock, in combination with the pivoting mudguards, permits an even better steering angle. The combination of a 4.15-meter vehicle length, a 2.35-metre wheelbase and a 52-degree steering angle result in a turning radius of only 4.2 metres for the best manoeuvring and turning characteristics.

For the tyre concept, the focus was on a versatile application range, which orients itself on practical requirements. The selection ranges from row crop tyres, which have a high ground clearance, to modern wide tyres, which minimise soil compaction in both field and grassland operations.

The legendary Fendt 300 range

The legendary reputation of the Fendt 300 range already began in the 1980’s. Through constant adaptation to the changing market requirements, Fendt has further developed the range up to the 300 Vario. Today, this range continues to stand for reliability, low fuel consumption and ease of operation while offering high performance.
