Not one but two of Fendt's flagship 1050 Vario models feature in this video. First of all we see a demo machine working with an Imants deep spader to turn the soil to a depth of over a metre. This is done to bring lighter soil and sand from the subsoil and mix it in with the surface to create a lighter soil type.
The second 1050 Vario is one of the first sold in the Netherlands to a specialist contractor. It is seed preparing land for cauliflowers using a 6m purpose build bed tiller.
The 1050 is the biggest in a 4 model range which Fendt launched at the 2015 Agritechnica show. It has 517 HP from a 12.4L MAN engine. The maximum torque is already available at 1.100 rpm. Its top speed of 60 km/h is reached at 1.450 rpm. The transmission is the new VarioDrive which automatically controls power to both axles.
