AGCO recently showed off its Fendt 1100 Vario MT track tractors at Farm Progress Show.
New to the lineup in late 2020, the 1100 Vario MT tractors combine innovations from previous models, as well as newly engineered features that elevate operator comfort and in-field performance.
Daniel Smith, product specialist with AGCO, says the series “hits that two-track market as well as the articulated market for air seeders, heavy draft tillage, and multiple applications.”
Some of the highlights from the series include fuel efficient Fendt iD low-rev engine management, smooth, stemless VarioDrive continuously variable transmission (CVT), as well as a high-capacity, dual-circuit hydraulic system.
The tractors offer a new approach to track machine suspension, more ballasting options, two industry-exclusive rear hitch systems, and many features to provide operator comfort.
“What makes this machine awesome is it’s up to a 673 horsepower machine with a MAN engine and it producers a very high torque for a very low engine rpm. So we can run this machine at 1300 to 1400 rpms, be at maximum torque, get a lot of work done, and have very minimal fuel usage while we are doing that work,” explains Smith.
The series comes in four models: the 1151 (511 HP), 1156 (564 HP), 1162 (618 HP) and the 1167 (673 HP). The Fendt 1167 Vario MT is the highest horsepower track tractor on the market today.
