Fendt Efficient Technology

The best of the best Fendt machines are given the Fendt Efficient Technology label. They allow professional farmers to achieve MORE from LESS – more output using less resources such as fuel, inputs or time. The 800 Vario achieves this with equipment options such as the VarioGuide guidance system, SectionControl, the AgCommand™ telemetry system or the VarioDoc documentation system. The low fuel consumption of a Fendt goes without saying.

Integrated enhanced performance

Fundamental innovations have found their way into the 800 Vario, ones that further improve the efficiency of the tractor series. The primary innovation is the combination of new engine technologies with the further optimised continuously variable Vario transmission – here the best of the best come together. Lively handling through more dynamics, higher torque and improved power availability. At the same time, intelligent solutions ensure low consumption of both fuel and AdBlue.

The VarioGrip tyre pressure regulation system provides efficiency that is transferred directly to the ground. Up to 15 percent more pulling power with the same horsepower underline the lead in efficiency of a 800 Vario. With the help of the intelligent Variotronic solution, you can further optimise the use of your Fendt Vario. This includes the new SectionControl, VarioGuide guidance system as the fully automatic maximum output control.

Superior reliability

High-horsepower tractors must deliver maximum performance. Fendt has trimmed the tractors for robustness, so they can stand up to higher loads. These measures include a high-performance engine and transmission oil cooling concept as well as stronger pistons made of steel, which are designed for high injection pressures.

With safety in the comfort zone

Next to economy, comfort and safety also have a high priority. To take a leading position here, the 800 Vario has ground-breaking technical advantages. A front windscreen made of laminated safety glass, a 300° field of vision with a new windscreen wiper or the LED headlamps with headlamp levelling are only some examples of features that increase safety.

Fendt Spotlights. Notable. Better.

A holistic approach, and therefore the perfect coordination of all the components in the tractor, is what makes the overall Fendt difference. A Fendt is notable, because it has been designed down to the very last detail by Fendt engineers, who also have an eye on the whole.

This results in solutions that are not obvious at the first glance, but are decisive in operation, so that you can do more.
Look for the Fendt Spotlights – the notable and better solutions – and discover what makes a Fendt a Fendt.

Engine and transmission: Superior performance. Perfection in detail.

Fuel filter for a sure start

When the temperatures outside are icy, the fuel pre-filter guides the pre-heated fuel directly back for injection and not to the tank, until the diesel has reached an adequate temperature. The injection process therefore always runs reliably.

Steel pistons

The cylinder pistons on the 800 Vario are made of durable steel. They are highly stable and have a long lifetime.

Vehicle body: Efficiency in motion

VarioGrip operation

Operation of the tyre pressure regulation system is integrated in the overall vehicle concept. Using the Varioterminal, the tyre pressure of the tractor can be controlled with just a push of a button. The assistance system informs drivers about too low or too high tyre pressure.

Lighting: Superior visibility – even at night

Coming home light and entry step light

Get back home 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 entry steps on the 800 Vario have practical lights. They are positioned on the tank so that the steps are perfectly illuminated and drivers can climb in and out safely.

Easy and clear operation

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.

The Fendt x5 cab: Details that are a pleasure.

Best visibility thanks to narrow bonnet

The 800 Vario has been trimmed for an optimal overview. The bonnet has been kept as narrow as possible, so drivers have an excellent view to the wheel arches and front-mounted implements.

More visibility

The new wiper offers a 300° field of vision To keep the view to the wheel arches and the front-mounted implement free when it rains, the wiper field has been nearly doubled and reaches all the way down to the bonnet. The windscreen wiper can be adjusted ideally with the intermittent wipe function.

More safety

A special feature of a Fendt tractor is the bonded front windscreen. It is not visible from the outside, but none the less a benefit for you, because it increases the stability of the window and provides a reliable seal. For even greater comfort and safety, a heated front windscreen made of laminated safety glass is also available.

Optimised interior lighting

The interior lighting in the 800 Vario is perfectly designed for the important areas. No matter the time, the most important operating elements are always well illuminated. The intensity of the lighting is automatically control via a light sensor, dependent on the light conditions.

The perfect workplace

The armrest is attached to the seat, which makes it very practical and comfortable for operators. The armrest moves together with the seat. Operators lean their arm on the armrest, where they can conveniently control operations.


Numerous sockets, for example the four 12 Volt sockets, are available for external current consumers.

Phone Bracket

A bracket keeps mobile phones their own fixed spot. The bracket can be adjusted to accommodate various phone models.

Integral cable lead-through

Fendt offers a clever solution for cables that run from the rear of the tractor into the cab. Cables can be guided through the lead-through, no matter what kind of cross section they have. The rear window can be closed, so dust, dirt, water and noise stay outside.

Many storage options

In a Fendt cab you will find many different stowage spaces and compartments, so that everything has its place.

Many storage options

Important papers, such as the operating manual, can be stored securely and well protected in the document case.

External cool box

Refreshments for a long work day find their place in the large external cool box. The cool box can also keep meals warm, if necessary.

Cooling compartment

There is space for a meal and a cool drink in the air-conditioned cooling compartment.

Fendt Variotronic: The leading edge through integration.

Varioterminal 10.4-B

You can easily change menu settings in the Varioterminal by either touching the screen or pushing the navigation buttons. You can navigate through the menus using either the keys or the touchscreen.

Varioterminal individually adjustable

The position and tilt of the Varioterminal can be adjusted as desired. A ball-head joint in the bracket permits the terminal to be pivoted in all directions. The operator always has an optimal view to the terminal.

Varioterminal individually adjustable

Up to four applications can be displayed in the monitor of the Varioterminal. The screen assignment key allows operators to freely select the screen layout. The home key is practical. You can always call up the last state of the display with the touch of a button.

Joystick button assignment

The functions for the implement control and headland management can be assigned to the multifunction lever as needed. Operators can find the perfect operating ergonomics for the operation at hand. In combination with the VarioGuide automated steering system, Variotronic automatic enables automatic activation of sequences at the headland.

SectionControl operation

The controls for SectionControl integrated in the Varioterminal are simple and easy to understand. They are straightforward and clear.

Edit offline

To optimise the progression of the steps, these can be created at a standstill, so there is no rush. If necessary, operators can adjust and optimise the operating sequence while working.

Customisable joystick buttons

It is practical that four sequences of the headland management can be activated with the joystick – two when driving into the track and two when driving out.

Front and rear linkage automatic mode

The easiest, but very helpful automated function, is automated control for the front and rear linkage and the PTO automatic mode using the “clover leaf” on the multi-function joystick. These can be activated with the Go and End keys without having to program the headland management beforehand.

Mounting areas: Has more interfaces.

A number of connections are available at the front and rear:

Practical: Cotter pins are secured to the lower link and cannot be lost.

External controls / PTO automatic

The Fendt Vario have external controls for the linkage and rear PTO. Rear implements are easy to mount. The engine speed can be increased via the rear PTO automatic and the desired PTO speed can be targeted. You save yourself unnecessary steps, for example, when starting the suction for the slurry tank.

Double-sided connect-under-pressure couplings:

Through the DCUP couplings, the hydraulic valves can be coupled under pressure on both sides; mounting and removing implements is easy. The self-closing valve flaps offer secure protection against contamination through dirt or water.

Overall profitability – Leaders drive Fendt

Overall profitability distinguishes the entire product line of the premium brand Fendt. The efficiency of the products guarantees the best cost-effectiveness per hectare. In combination with the extremely high retention of value of a Fendt, you also get an unbeatable resale value at the end of your tractor’s service life. As a trendsetter, Fendt continually sets important new standards and installs technology that continues to be in demand in the future. Add to that the high quality, which stands for operational reliability and a long life. The total is a retention of value that only Fendt can offer you.


Tested efficiency

Fendt stands for efficiency and low fuel consumption. The best proof for that is the practice-oriented DLG PowerMix test. According to the DLG PowerMix test, the 824 Vario from the predecessor series of the new 800 Vario is one of the most economical high-horsepower tractors that has ever been tested with its result of 245 g/kWh.* And that was the benchmark to improve on for the new series.
