Fendt adds integrated guidance system to baby 300 Varios

Fendt is now offering integrated guidance on its baby 300 Vario series tractors when ordered in top-spec ProfiPlus guise and fitted with a 7in in-cab terminal.

In addition, the 500 and 700 series models are now available in PowerPlus spec, which was first introduced on the larger 800 and 900 tractors in 2015 where there was a need for guidance systems.

It means the smaller machines can now be ordered with fully automatic steering – an important step for Fendt, given that more than 60% of 700 series tractors leave the factory with some form of guidance kit.

Customers can choose between a NovAtel or Trimble receiver, with precision levels from +/- 20cm on the standard Vario guide through to the all-singing +/- 2cm RTK option.

The 800 and 900 Vario tractors have also been upgraded with flat face hydraulic couplings that allow for cleaner connections of the hydraulic pipes, to minimise the amount of dirt that gets into the system.

Retrofitting couplings is also possible thanks to  screw-in inserts for the conventional set-up, which are available in different sizes.
