Fendt 700 Vario – Technology

Perfect coordination.

The engine and transmission of the Fendt 700 Vario form a perfect unit for a high-torque drive train with stepless driving pleasure. The tried and proven, powerful six-cylinder engine in the Fendt 700 Vario convinces through lively handling with high manoeuvrability and a maximum output of up to 240 hp. The new engine components increase durability and reduce fuel consumption. The further developed SCR exhaust technology complies with the requirements of emissions Stage 4 / Tier 4 final.

Perfect coordination for the best drive train

Power and reliability

The tried and proven six-cylinder Deutz engine on Fendt 700 Vario delivers 110 hp to 138 hp with a top speed of 50 km/h. With a 6.1 litre cubic capacity, 4 valves per cylinder and common rail injections, the engine offers a high torque driving experience. The compact high-horsepower tractor is designed for maximum performance and load capacity. The engine and transmission are ideally coordinated, so that a high overall efficiency can be achieved.

Economical and environmentally friendly

Every litre counts. The Fendt 700 Vario is equipped with the SCR exhaust technology and is especially fuel-efficient and complies with the emissions standard EURO Stage 4 / Tier 4 final. The passive diesel particulate filter, which does not require additional injection of fuel into the exhaust line, also saves fuel. Despite a low rated speed of 2,100 rpm, the new Fendt 700 Vario delivers full performance in the field and on the road.

Perfect driving is stepless

Because only with the stepless Fendt Vario transmission can you drive at the ideal speed for your work. You can drive from 0.02 km/h to a maximum speed of 50 km/h, exactly, without steps. And you can operate your tractor conveniently with the multifunction joystick. Reduced maintenance costs through longer transmission oil change intervals, every 2,000 hours, have an especially positive impact.

Go to the limit with full power

Features, such as the automatic maximum output control, further reduce fuel consumption, since the engine is always running in the ideal speed range. The load limit, which is different for each operation, is regulated automatically. The limit no longer needs to be entered manually and the engine and transmission are always perfectly coordinated. In kick-down mode, the tractor accelerates swiftly and convinces through lively handling.

Vehicle body – Trust begins at the base

Ready for every operation: The Fendt 700 Vario meets all your requirements for robustness and reliability. The strong cast half-frame with self-levelling front axle easily masters high payloads over six tonnes. The integral compressed air braking system keeps the tractor and trailer safe when braking and the cast half-frame enables stable handling in curves, even at high speeds. With the perfectionist, your work day begins with a good feeling.

Many paths – one goal: arrive quickly and safely

The points for performance and comfort

The entire chassis of the Fendt 700 Vario has been perfectly designed for demanding operations and fast transport.

  • Self-levelling front axle suspension with 100 mm suspension travel
  • Pneumatic dual-circuit braking system with one-pedal or steering clutch brake
  • TMS pedal mode with adjustment of deceleration through thrust detection
  • Automatic trailer steering axle lock
  • 100% differential locks for front and rear

Fast transport and high payload

A robust cast half frame, which enables a permissible gross weight of 14 tons, carries the load on the Fendt 700 Vario. With a high payload of 6,020 kg, the compact high-horsepower tractor has plenty of reserves for heavy implements. The self-levelling front axle suspension has a 100-mm suspension travel for optimum play. It provides comfort and safety with an especially direct transmission of pulling power, even with heavy loads.

Safe braking

High transport loads must be slowed down quickly in hazardous situations. The pneumatic dual-circuit braking system decelerates the tractor very effectively. The compressed air based braking system reacts very sensitively and precisely. The two-pedal brake has proven to be especially advantageous during transport with trailers. The TMS Tractor Management System increases driving stability through automatic thrust detection and intelligent deceleration.

Absolutely stable

The Fendt Reaction steering system guarantees optimal straight-ahead driving. After negotiating a curve, it returns the steering wheel back to its starting position faster. The automatic steering axle lock ensures stable straight-ahead driving with trailers. Operators do not need to lock the self-steering axle manually when certain speeds have been attained or when reversing.

Comfort and safety

The design of the suspension on the 700 Vario enables maximum ride comfort in the field and on the road. The combination of front axle suspension, cab suspension and seat suspension, which provide a driving sensation on par with passenger cars, was adopted from the high-horsepower tractors.

Shock load stabilising prevents the tractor and implement from bouncing by actively counteracting movements using the hydraulics. It reduces pitching movements so you benefit from improved steering safety and higher ride comfort.

With the VarioActive superimposed steering system, a stronger steering ratio can be activated. It adapts itself to steering movements and driving speed and provides more comfort during front loader work, at the headlands or in tight farmyards.

The front axle, which has a suspension system as standard, enables high payloads along with the best ride comfort. The +/– 50 mm suspension travel, absorbs uneven surfaces very well. The swing angle of 8° ensures stability while driving. A front axle steering angle of 52° guarantees maximum manoeuvrability.


Lighting concept on the 700 Vario doesn’t leave you in the dark. The work lights on the 700 Vario can be individually adjusted for up to 360 degrees of illumination. Optionally available as LED lights.

With the corner lights, you have the entire wheel arch in view, even at night. The corner lights are also available as extra bright LED lights.

The arrangement of the lights in the 700 Vario is unique – the work lights are “cross-eyed”. This prevents all shadows and reflections so operators profit from an optimally illuminated field of vision.

Finish your work safely: The integrated coming home light permits operators to climb down from the tractor safely, even in the dark. The headlights continue to shine a while longer after the tractor is switched off.

The lighting is easily set and adjusted thanks to its straightforward layout. With the smart one-button system, all previously set work lights can be switched on easily and quickly with just one touch of a button in the membrane keypad.
