Fendt 300 Vario – Technology

Yes, this drive is a joy.

Lively and efficient

The power range of the Fendt 300 Vario goes from a maximum output of 110 hp to 138 hp with a top speed of 40 km/h. The 4.4-l engine delivers more power and torque in the 300er class. The all-round tractor is extremely fuel-efficient: The low rated speed of 2,100 rpm, a new cooler unit and a high-capacity air filter ensure high efficiency with low fuel consumption.

Economical and environmentally friendly

Also saves on emissions: The SCR exhaust technology with AdBlue exhaust gas treatment proves to be especially fuel-efficient. The additional injection of the urea solution AdBlue reduces nitrogen oxides to a minimum. In combination with a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and the exhaust gas recirculation (AGRex), emissions are reduced effectively and the tractor complies with the newest Stage 4 / Tier 4 Final emissions standards

Economical and low maintenance

The fuel pre-filter with thermostatic valve allows the tractor to start reliably, even at very low temperatures well below zero, since the pre-warmed fuel flows from the return into the prefilter. The radiator and filter are arranged for ease of maintenance. The fuel and AdBlue consumption indicator not only monitors the current consumption, but also logs the consumption for different operations. Furthermore, they assist the operator in maintaining an efficient driving style.

“We started with one Fendt 300 Vario, and now we have four. These machines do really good work every day, and they are top in terms of fuel consumption.”

Andrew Herron, arable farmer and Fendt operator from Belfast, Ireland

Exhaust gas aftertreatment

With SCR technology, exhaust is after-treated with AdBlue, a 32.5 percent urea solution, and the nitrogen oxides NOx are converted to harmless nitrogen and water.

Engine characteristics – Fendt 300 Vario

596 Nm torque, 138 hp maximum output at 1,750 rpm.  More strength through powerful 4.4-l engine.


The fuel pre-filter with thermostatic valve allows the tractor to start reliably, even when outside temperatures are very low. The radiator and filter are arranged for ease of maintenance.


The extremely fine atomisation through a 6-hole injector nozzle effectively reduces AdBlue consumption.

Powerful hydraulics

With a 110-litre delivery volume, the load-sensing pump (LS control pump) has a high volume capacity. This pump capacity permits the engine speed to be kept low, which saves fuel effectively, even during demanding operations. The Fendt 300 Vario is equipped with the powerful 110-litre LS control pump as standard in the Profi equipment level. The Power variant has an 84-liter constant flow pump as standard and can be equipped with the 110-litre pump.

Stepless driving pleasure: The Fendt Vario transmission.

The stepless Vario transmission guarantees ride comfort and savings potential. You can drive from 0.02 km/h to a maximum speed of 40 km/h continuously, without shifting. You always work at the exact speed that matches the work. This provides enhanced performance that will always remain outside of the grasp of power shift transmissions. The tractor is easy to drive, either per joystick or with the pedal. The Vario transmission and engine are designed for low fuel consumption.

The ingenious Fendt Vario transmission is a hydrostatic-mechanical power split drive. With increasing speed, the share of the mechanical power transmitted through the planetary set increases. Power splitting and hydrostats that swing 45 degrees ensure outstanding efficiency.

The separate transmission and hydraulic oil supplies prevent oil mixing and guarantee high operational reliability of the transmission.

Fendt Vario – that is driving comfort

Well-balanced and efficient with TMS

Frequently changing operations are on the agenda for an all-rounder. Whether for transport or heavy draft work, the Fendt 300 Vario has been designed for ideal performance, low fuel consumption and reduced wear on components. The tractor management system TMS controls the engine and transmission so that they are always working at an economical optimum without you having to think about it. You just have to specify the desired speed.

Relaxed driving at the limit

The Fendt 300 Vario Profi offers fully automatic maximum output control, where the engine load is determined according to the power demand. The engine is therefore always operating in the ideal engine speed range. Operators can also adjust the maximum output control 2.0 manually, if they wish. The kick-down mode, where the tractor accelerates similar to a passenger car with automatic transmission, means the tractor takes off swiftly.

The driving mode can be selected individually: The speed can be controlled with either the pedal or the joystick.

Driving direction can be changed with either the joystick or the reverser lever with integral stop and go function.

The right speed…

… for the PTO shafts can be easily adjusted using the keys on the Variocentre: the speeds 540, 540 E and 1000 rpm are available for the rear PTO. Practical are the external controls on the rear mudguard. The Eco variant 540E is ideal for light work, where fuel can be saved at a reduced engine speed. The PTO shafts on the Fendt 300 Vario have outstanding efficiency, since power to the PTO stub flows through a direct drive line from the Vario transmission.

The new integrated front PTO delivers 1000 rpm. The direct drive line from the engine to the implement means high efficiency.
