They are identical. Maybe the steering stops were not adjusted properly?

I toured the AGCO plant in Jackson MN a couple weeks ago and they were building some of the new 700 series tracked unit and putting Fendt hoods on them and shipping to Europe. All same but for the color and probably some lighting and other options due to road travel rules.
Fendt makes two Models with tracks now. MT 1100 and MT 900 Vario. I think these are the Challengers in Fendt green. But the MT 900 Vario got the Vario Transmission from Fendt.

Question: Are the Challengers and the Fendt 1000 Series in Northamerica also available with different Speeds: 40,50,60 km/h?

The new 900 Fendt is the same as the new MT700 Challenger paint is the only diff. . The MT600 Challengers are the same as MF 8700.
THe Mt 800 are like the MT1100 Fendts. The Challenger MT700 series is new from the ground up and is really different from the previous MT700e series.

If I remember right salesman said North America tractors are only 50k max. There is some 60k Fendts running around but the owners brought them with them to NA and will bring family later lol.

For anyone interested,
The reason there are yellow Fendt tractors and green Challenger tractors is that in order for Challenger/Cat dealers in the states to sell Fendt they paint them yellow and throw on a Challenger badge, and the same applies to the Fendt dealers in Europe selling the tracked tractors. The main difference between a Challenger 1000 and a Fendt 1000 is the warranty and the joystick. The Fendts warranty is three years or 3000 hours with maintenance program service intervals are at 50 hours, then at 500-hour intervals until 3000 hours or 3 years, whichever comes first. This is where Fendt will cover service, labor, and parts during the 3 year/3000 hours agricultural use warranty period. Whereas the Challenger 1000s still have a warranty but not quite like the Fendt 1000s do, and I currently don't know the conditions of their warranty. Also, the joystick is dumbed down in the Challenger so it no longer has two hydraulic control switches and has only two "Teach In/Accufield Command" function buttons whereas the Fendt has four. but other than the color and a few small other things they are the same tractor and are built in the same factory. And as far as the tracked tractors, the Challenger MT700/Fendt MT900 and the Challenger MT800E/Fendt 1100 they are exactly the same other than the color as far as I know.

Still the same frame and engine. I know the reps here said that they wished that the mt700s had the MANN engines
