Agco Fendt has introduced the new Fendt 500 Vario tractor.

“The new Fendt 500 Vario features an extensive range of capabilities to meet the needs of operators who increasingly demand more with less,” says Josh Keeney, AGCO Fendt tactical marketing manager. “Time is a precious resource for farmers. The Fendt 500 is versatile enough for a wide range of applications work, from light chores to fieldwork. It’s an efficient tractor that provides unrivalled competitive advantages from a tractor of its size.”

The Fendt 500 Vario comes fully-equipped with the Varioterminal. The terminal is fully ISOBUS-certified by Agricultural Electronics Foundation (AEF) and available in 7-inch and 10.4-inch screen sizes. Among these features include: VarioGuide™ automatic steering system, camera function, VarioDoc documentation system, SectionControl and VariotronicTI. The VarioGuide automatic steering system allows for precise driving.

Headland management is integrated into every Varioterminal and clearly laid out in the display. Variotronic allows operators to activate automated operating sequences with just a touch of a button.

“Ultimately, all this technology will give the operator the ability to use the machine for optimum performance and the ability to turn his or her attention to other management decisions, away from the setting and adjustments of the machines,” says Keeney.

The single, undivided curved front windshield of the Fendt VisioPlus cab curves up into the roof and offers nearly triple the upward angle of sight. The cab also provides an unobstructed view of the front wheels, as well as 320 degrees of horizontal visibility that encompasses the tires, crop and front- and rear-attached implements. The compact 500 Vario is also fast, agile and maneuverable in transport work. As a standard offering from the factory, the tractor has a road speed of up to 31 mph.

The standard pneumatic self-leveling cab suspension reduces fatigue and is supported on four points with integrated self-leveling two conic bearings at the front and on two air spring elements at the rear.
