In our test on the road and in the field, the Vario transmission and the TMS engine-transmission control proved to be very well coordinated, the automatic maximum output control is exemplary.

traction (01/02 2016)

Even those that do not need this flow volume (193 l/min) can also profit, because the engine needs less speed to deliver high volumes of oil during hydraulic work.

top agrar (12/2015)

With an unladen weight of 7.8 t, an impressive 6.2 t payload remains – that is more than 1 t more than the average

The 700 Vario can also refute the argument that stepless drives have poor efficiency: For (…) 121 kW maximum tractive power, the Vario consumes (…) 262 g/kWh less than some tractors with manual transmissions.

profi (4/2016)

And as light-footed as the 700 Vario is on the road, it is just as economical. With 537 g/kWh at 40 km/h and 540 g/kWh at 50 km/h, fuel consumption during transport is also a good 8 and 6% below the average of all previously measured tractors – there is nothing more to add!

Super performance – lowest consumption. Perfect!

Fendt: Best rating in top agrar-Test

In the top agrar test ›The new 200er tested in practice‹ (11/2015), the Fendt convinced with the best overall rating. The Fendt 720 Vario wins with a final rating of 1.7 with a clear margin ahead of the competitors (second place scored 2.1).

The new tractor test proves: Leaders drive Fendt.

The Fendt 700 Vario tops all tests. The current DLG PowerMix results as well as all the previous independent test results show: The manoeuvrable high-horsepower tractor leads in low diesel and AdBlue consumption, traction, hydraulics, operation and comfort. All in all, the Fendt 700 Vario has outstanding versatility and has proven itself in operation; it is therefore the perfect tractor for any farm.

dlz (12/2015)

The S4 is a successful further development. The new engine is livelier and tends to be more fuel-efficient than its predecessor. Diverse updates, which might not be obvious at first glance, round out the excellent impression and make the 724 ProfiPlus a tractor that is a pleasure to drive.

The press writes.

Macchine Agricole (7-8/2015)

The new 700 Series from Fendt adapts to the different conditions, from light work, such as harvesting hay, up to heavy operations, such as tillage.

Vehicle body: Can do it faster. Does more.

Fendt promises.

A robust cast half frame, which enables a permissible gross weight of 14 tonnes, carries the load on the Fendt 700 Vario. With a high payload of 6 tonnes, the compact high-horsepower tractor has plenty of reserves for heavy implements.

Safety is top priority for us

Fendt promises.

High transport loads must be slowed down quickly in hazardous situations. The pneumatic dual-circuit braking system decelerates the tractor very effectively.

The press writes.

Macchine Agricole (7-8/2015)

The new pneumatic 2-circuit braking system underscores the road worthiness of Fendt tractors.

Fendt VariotronicTI - Electronic assistants

Fendt promises.

Operating the Fendt 700 Vario Power is straightforward and easy using the fully integrated Variocentre.

The press writes.

top agrar (11/2015)

The operating interface offers very many options, especially in the tested ProfiPlus equipment variant – despite this, we found most functions to be straightforward.

The press writes.

profi international (1/2015)

However, users love the Vario box for its versatility. And it's the same story for the controls - the multifunction joystick and large colour touch screen mean all the tractor's clever tricks are easy to find, so they get used on a daily basis. Add the big, airy cabin into the mix and it's no surprise that drivers are very happy to spend over 2.000 hours a year on the 724.

Because the cab is more than just a workplace

Fendt promises.

The Fendt VisioPlus cab offers plenty of space for your comfort. Comfortable entry, optimal suspension, ergonomic arrangement of the operating elements as well as more visibility and space with panoramic front window.

The five-post cab is bright, has good workmanship and provides excellent visibility thanks to the high front window (super: 300° wiper).

The press writes.

profi (12/2015)

The spacious cab provides super visibility, even upwards, has excellent workmanship and is pleasantly quiet with less than 72 dB(A). The seat can be turned far to the side, and the armrest does not get in the way, even for bigger drivers.

Powerful hydraulics

Fendt promises.

The lifting struts can be shortened by removing a locking pin and pressing the lower links upwards until they engage.

The press writes.

top agrar (12/2015)

We liked the front hydraulics and all of the equipment of the newly designed, optional double-acting rear power lift (great: lift struts can be quickly shortened by 10 cm for drawbars in the bottom hitch). With a nearly 9-t lift capacity and 85 cm travel, no wishes remain open.

Mounting areas: Full function for front and rear

Fendt promises.

Powerful hydraulics facilitate and expand the areas of application for maximum efficiency and the best productivity.

With a delivery capacity of 193 litres per minute, the load-sensing pump on the Fendt 700 Vario truly provides a high volume capacity for the hydraulic system. These pumps for the Profi and ProfiPlus variants have an easy time with the most demanding implement operations.

The press writes.

profi (4/2016)

In the lowest position, the 720 Vario already lifts 7.4 t and at the top over 9.5 t. (…) together with a more than 85 cm travel and the linkage geometry, no wishes go unfulfilled.

The press writes.

profi (4/2016)

In addition to the standard-equipped 152 l/min axial piston pump, there is now a pump with 193 l/min for the hydraulics (…). The DLG measured 194.4 l/min and 51.8 kW of usable hydraulic power. In addition to the 64 l of available oil, another top value in this class.

The press writes.

profi (4/2016)

Especially because the reliable lateral stabilisers, which feature easy conversion from Cat. II/III and can be hung up out of the way, still remain unparalleled.

The press writes.

top agrar (12/2015)

Some 64 l can be taken out of a separate tank - the best in the test. Measured on two ports, the pump delivers 194 l/min (average of test participants: 167 l/min).

The press writes.

top agrar (12/2015)

With a nearly 9-t lift capacity and 85 cm travel, no wishes remain open.

Front linkage

Fendt promises.

The load relief control for the front linkage is a particular advantage when operating a snow plough or a front mower in grassland operations, since implement guidance can be quickly adjusted to uneven surfaces.

The press writes.

traction (01/02 2016)

The optional front linkage is not only double-acting, it also has active load relief control as well as position control with precise height adjustment.

Rear mounting area for many implements

Fendt promises.

No matter which PTO implement you are using, on the Fendt 700 Vario you can demand power exactly when it is needed.

The press writes.

profi (4/2016)

The 700er can now deliver a continual 160 hp over the (more stable) front PTO and is also fully equipped with four PTO speeds at the rear: 540, 540E, 1000 and 1000E.

The press writes.

Macchine Agricole (7-8/2015)

The automatic PTO start-up is also worth mentioning. The power transfer at the PTO is adjusted to the needs of the implement, e.g. for implements with very high power requirement when switching on [square baler].

Fast transport and high payload

Fendt promises.

Every litre counts. The Fendt 700 Vario is equipped with the SCR exhaust technology and is especially fuel-efficient and complies with the emissions standard EURO Stage 4 / Tier 4 final.

The press writes.

profi (4/2016)

The braking rate of 5 m/s² is outstanding - just like the modulation of the new pneumatic braking system!

The press writes.

profi (4/2016)

And as light-footed as the 700 Vario is on the road, it is just as economical. With 537 g/kWh at 40 km/h and 540 g/kWh at 50 km/h, fuel consumption during transport is also a good 8 and 6% below the average of all previously measured tractors – there is nothing more to add!

The press writes.

traction (01/02 2016)

We performed the transport PowerMix at the DLG for the first time with our test candidate and the data speaks for the tractor from the Allgäu: With 498 g/kWh, the 724 Vario is clearly at the top of its power class in terms of fuel economy.

The press writes.

traction (01/02 2016)

The 724 Vario was excellent in transport – with a 48 m³ Dolly semi-trailer, it consumed a good 1.5 to 2.0 l/h less than other modern tractors in the harvesting chain.

The press writes.

traction (01/02 2016)

Furthermore, the tractor, with an unladen weight of barely 8 t, requires less diesel for propelling itself. Here the lightweight design clearly pays off.

The press writes.

top agrar (12/2015)

In our round of tests, the Fendt was the best in terms of the overall consumption of diesel and AdBlue (DEF). In the 50 km/h version, it consumed 52.5 litres per 100 kilometres, at 40 km/h it was 2.3 litres lower.
