Fendt Vario CVT in Agricultural Tractors 2007-01-4205

This presentation shows the concepts and the advantages of the Fendt Vario CVT and the features that have been developed to enhance its use in agricultural tractors. The Fendt Vario transmission has been in production for more than 10 years with more than 60,000 tractors built with this CVT concept (until the first half of 2007, Fendt and OEM). As examples emphasize, the CVT helps to optimize the usable power and the fuel economy - especially when compared to power shift transmissions. The machine productivity is further improved by a variety of features like cruise control or constant engine speed for PTO operation with variable ground speed. Acceleration rates are adjustable and reversing can be accomplished with best operator comfort. Further automation and operation systems make the CVT tractor fit to high-end applications. A macro-instruction system allows the driver to store multiple operations. Other main characteristics of a tractor for professionals are mentioned, e.g. anti-roll system, auto-guidance.
