Fendt adds FFC to 800 & 900 Varios tractor ranges

Flat face hydraulic couplings (FFC) are now being offered on Fendt’s 800 Vario and 900 Vario tractor ranges. Until now, the FFC was only available for the Fendt 1000 Vario. The flat face design of this two-sided Fendt hydraulic clutch, which can be operated at full pressure, prevents oil leaks. With pressure losses eliminated, the oil does not heat up as much, conserving energy.

FFC have high flow rates: 140 litres for rear valves 1-6 or optionally up to 170 litres on the fourth rear valve.

Fendt Marketing Director, Roland Schmidt, said FFC were also much easier to keep clean than conventional hydraulic couplings. “The absolutely flat surface of these flat-sealing hydraulic couplings makes cleaning an easy task while, at the same time, the extremely low level of dirt ingress also extends the filter change interval,” Schmidt said.

Fendt has also retained its familiar color coding scheme. Schmidt adds, “This means that a farm does not need to change over to the new system from one day to the next, and can instead do so one step at a time.”
