Tables & Crop elevator.

Fendt IDEAL with PowerFlow tables.

PowerFlow tables

To get the best results, everything has to be right from the start. That's why all Fendt IDEAL combines work with the latest generation of the world's most esteemed PowerFlow tables. Our PowerFlow cutter units stand out for their robust, solid and durable design. The PowerFlow belts actively drive the crop, including ears, into the machine. This means the material flows evenly, and the threshing system's potential is fully exploited and protected from stones.

Fendt Autodock™ Crop elevator

Short setup times mean more time for harvesting. Fendt Autodock™ automatically couples the attachment within 5 seconds, setting standards in terms of ease of use. You don't even have to leave the driver's seat. Once the attachment is added, 4 hydraulic cylinders complete the connection. A hydraulic cylinder in the middle of the crop elevator frame mechanically locks the attachment.

Superior rotors: Single and Dual Helix.

The Helix Processor

The Helix Processor: simply unique

All components of the rotors such as the rasp bars and rotor tines are arranged in four rows like a helix. The front part of the rotors consists of 4 rasp bars installed lengthways which loosen the grains from the ears. The baskets below that are available in different designs for the best results in any application. They can be replaced quickly and easily from the side, depending on the application. The gaps between baskets are hydraulically adjusted up to a maximum of 35 mm. The rotor tines are tilted 20° to the rear, which divides the crop into the helix sections and reliably and gently runs it around the rotor. This prevents unexpected load peaks on the rotor and there are no edges for the product to stick to.

RotorFeeder feeding drum

The feed is vital

The RotorFeeder feeding drum with 600 mm passes the crop from below to the rotors, guaranteeing the best threshing results. The RotorFeeder speed is automatically controlled in proportion to the rotor speed – always at 70% of the rotor speed. Because the speed is adjusted to best match the rotor speed and the large transfer area, the straw is kept intact. The RotorFeeder also uses far less power during this process. A constant flow of crop is guaranteed by the optimal transfer.

Feed and power requirement

Gentle feed, low power requirement

The height of each rotor tine is 140 mm. Perfectly separated grain without damaging the product too much in too confined a space. In turn you get high straw quality and best threshing at low power. The threshing system is also distinguished by its simple configuration. The operator only needs to change the rotor speed range and the concave clearance.

Always in the right balance.
IDEALbalance™ System.


Outstanding technology. IDEALbalanceTM

To ensure that nothing but clean crop lands in the grain tank, Fendt IDEAL models are equipped with the unique and ingeniously simple IDEALbalance™ system. The core of the system is the double grain pan. The front grain pan collects the material threshed out by the rasp bars in the front part and forwards it to the front part of the preparation floor. The rear grain pan collects the material discarded from the rotor tines and sends it backwards to the preparation floor. The makes full use of the preparation floor and the product is well cleaned.

    Grain pan IDEAL

    The front grain pan is concave to gather the material in the middle of the pan. With a Dual Rotor, the rear grain pan is convex, so the crop collects at the outer ends. This distributes the crop in the machine properly in all conditions. On 15% gradients, this straightforward design avoids up to 60% losses compared to flat pans. IDEALBalance™ is built into all Fendt IDEAL models as standard. The IDEAL 7 comes with a special grain pan option, just right for the single rotor.

    Evenly distributed across the sieves

    On single-rotor models (IDEAL 7) the material is collected in the middle by the long grain pan, before being evenly distributed in the front part of the preparation floor.
The centre bars of the Fendt IDEAL.

Centre bars: Slope insensitivity of up to 15°

The 6 centre bars (IDEAL 7, 8) measure 150 mm in height for a slope insensitivity of up to 15°. Loss sensors at the end of the shaker shoe help the driver adjust the machine to the best possible configuration.
The curved drop steps of the Fendt IDEAL.

Curved drop steps: Significantly increased air volumes

The IDEAL 9 and 10 features curved drop steps. Thanks to the curved shape, the heavy grains gather in the lower part of the step, while the laws of physics mean the lighter parts of the crop flow are in the top section. The curved steps provide a wider air outlet, which can significantly increase the air volumes. The 4 curved-step sections of the IDEAL 10 can be easily removed for cleaning.

Choose between 3 straw distribution settings.

The chaff spreader is placed directly at the end of the shaker shoe and distributes straw and chaff as desired. The distribution disks are hydraulically driven, allowing variable speeds. Choose between 3 straw distribution settings: chop and mix (chaff into chopper), drop straw and mix (chaff into swath) and separate chaff from straw (chaff distributed sideways). At the end of the straw chopper comes either the ActiveSpread distributor or passive straw deflectors. ActiveSpread works with two hydraulic straw distributors, the speed of which you can adjust from the cab. With the passive straw distributor you have the choice of adjusting the deflector plates wither electrically or manually. The left and right sides can always be set independently.

Grain tank and discharge.

Unprecedented discharge speeds

Fendt IDEAL combines come with a choice of 2 grain tank versions. The Streamer 210 with a 17,100 l capacity and a 210 l/s unload rate, or the Streamer 140 with 12,500 l and 140 l/s. The enormous volume and increased unloading rate do justice to the enormous output of the Fendt IDEAL. The key to the enormous speed is the huge diameter of the unloading auger. The large diameter of 480 mm with a few auger flights allows for simultaneous low speeds. Gently and with low power requirements, the grain tank is fully unloaded within 81 seconds.

Sensors of the Fendt IDEAL.
Fewer and shorter stops for unloading are soon reflected in a greater daily yield – sensors for yield and moisture and a grain quality camera are fitted to the elevator. The data is accurate to 98%, and applied with the VarioDoc ISOBUS standard, live yield mapping and IDEALharvest™.

Fendt IDEAL: Engine, chassis and drive.

Engines & reversible fan

MAN and AGCO Power engines

To give you the best overall package, the 4 different Fendt IDEAL models also work with 4 different engines, which are perfectly adapted to the potential output of the IDEAL 7, 8, 9 and 10. The maximum fuel efficiency can only be achieved with an engine that is perfectly suited to the potential output. The IDEAL 7 has an AGCO Power engine, while the IDEAL 8, 9 and 10 feature 3 different MAN engines. All engines comply with Emissions Stage V regulations, and are noted for their long service intervals.

Revolutionary AirSense® Cooling

Cooling is a crucial part of ensuring the engines always run efficiently and reliably. AirSense® Cooling was developed for the Fendt IDEAL. The idea is to provide maximum cooling capacity with minimal cleaning effort. AirSense® Cooling consists of a 950 mm reversible fan and a cooling area of 2.7 m². The air is extracted centrally through a radiator grille on the top side of the Fendt IDEAL. Depending on the temperature and time, the fan automatically changes its direction of rotation and reliably fans the cooler.

Fendt IDEAL chassis

Slim mover

The slimline chassis of the Fendt IDEAL combine also allows for large contact surfaces in your wheel selection, with an outside width measuring less than 3.3 m with 800/70R38 wheels. Even Fendt IDEAL combines with ParaLevel slope compensation, which makes adjustments for inclines of up to 14%, can have 800/70R38 wheels on the front axle. This will keep your transport width under 3.5 m.

Maximum propulsion

The IDEAL automatically switches to 4WD mode independently and intelligently only when the adjusted pressure of the front axle is reached. This means that the AllDrive axis supports the IDEAL only where necessary to deliver full traction, With the differential lock on, the AWD is permanently on. When you steer the differential lock turns off, and after the manoeuvre comes back on again. With this, the IDEAL saves on fuel and protects the axle.

The Fendt IDEAL gearbox

Fendt MotionShift

The Fendt IDEAL gearbox offers two gears with a speed range of 0-15 km/h or 0-40 km/h. Fendt MotionShift allows you to shift both gear conveniently during the ride using a button on the armrest. The speed can be easily controlled via the multi-function joystick. In CVT mode, the speed starts at 0 km/h. The IDEAL's acceleration is linked to the joystick position. Enable the unique Hookup mode on the armrest and the Fendt IDEAL reacts proportionally to joystick movements. This makes light work of coupling attachments.

Workplace with the best view

The Fendt VisionCab was designed to offer you the perfect workplace with the best view over the attachment. It does this with a window area of 5.75 m² and a 180° panoramic view. The low noise level of just 73 db creates a pleasant working atmosphere. The generous driver's cab means even long-legged drivers can enjoy a comfortable seat.
The armrest of the Fendt IDEAL.

Everything under control

At the heart of the Fendt IDEAL's simple and intuitive operation is the armrest. It features a handy joystick and the membrane/toggle button for machine functions. There is also a small digital display for the key machine settings. The Varioterminal 10.4" also allows you to easily adjust the machine by tapping or by pressing a button. For the advanced machine functions of the IDEALharvest™, click your iPad into the stable and practical holder and run the application.

Joystick steering

For a better view of the table, the Fendt IDEAL offers a revolutionary concept – IDEALdrive. With IDEALdrive, there is no need for a steering column. Instead of using a steering wheel, you control the combine harvester with a joystick on the left armrest. The left hand steers while the right hand controls the speed. It means you have a great view to the front. The joystick's control and intuitive response are proportional to the driving speed.
