Strong all the way. 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. The clean-cutting Schumacher cutterbar achieves more than 1,220 cuts per minute, driven from both sides for maximum power and precision during cutting. Then the crop including ears is carried on the PowerFlow belts to the Superflow auger. This measures over 76 cm in diameter and occupies the entire width of the feed finger. The PowerFlow cutter unit is particularly impressive with uncut crop, achieving the highest output and the lowest losses.
PowerFlow tables: IDEAL all the way.
The lift cylinders on the Fendt IDEAL combine also provide easy clearance even with wide and heavy attachments. On the IDEAL 7 and 8 the cylinders measure 85 mm in diameter and can lift up to 5 tonnes. On the high-end IDEAL 9 model, the cylinders measure 92 mm and can lift up to 6.5 tonnes. The lifting design gives a maximum ground clearance of 1270 mm in the up position. Two cylinders on the crop elevator compensate for tilting. They respond quickly and precisely to changing surfaces and compensate up to +/-8°.
Always in the right position
With TerraControl™ you have perfect control over the widest attachments. TerraControl™ guides the attachment fully automatically at a perfect distance from and perfect inclination to the ground. Working together with various functions you can use for the best results. This includes work height adjustment, resetting, support pressure, various pre-selectable cutting heights, lifting when reversing, reel speed and headland management – everything fully automatically.
There are four different Fendt PowerFlow tables to choose from for the different IDEAL models. The widest version (12.22 m) is also suitable for Controlled Traffic Farming. All cutter units can be converted quickly and easily for the rape crop threshing. Both-sided vertical knives ensure clean crop edges.
The right connection for highest output.
So don’t lose any time. 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. At the same time, two couplings push out to connect the PTO drives. AutodockTM connects the multi-coupler separately to the attachment and the machine. An RFID code, the 'Ag tag' helps the Fendt IDEAL to detects the attachment and retrieves the last settings used for that unit.
The Fendt IDEAL provides the best power for all available attachments. As well as a fixed cutting speed, you can also choose from a variable speed and different power settings. Besides zero-loss and high power transmission as well as unconditional reliability, the designers have kept the external width small, so that legal requirements can be met even when using wide tyres. With a variable table drive, the two-stage crop elevator is always attached. The speeds of between 250 or 525 rpm allow for toolless adjustment for better crop quality, especially in dry conditions.
With the Optional Fendt AutoDock™, you can couple the attachment and all connections.
The Fendt IDEAL models 7 and 8 have three feed chains in the crop elevator. An even higher output can be realised with the IDEAL 9, in which four feed chains are fitted. The front feeding drum is closed on all models. This pays dividends when corn threshing due to the gentle grain handling. The chain tension and height can be adjust remarkable easily: by turning a shaft, you can switch the height between 50 and 98 mm. The correct tension can be set by the spring pre-load.
The adjustable attachment cutting angle for the perfect in-feed, especially for warehouse crops. Using the 2 hydraulic cylinders at the bottom of the crop elevator housing, you can set the angle between the crop elevator and the attachment from the comfort of your cab. The angle of rotation is close to the front feeding drum, so the transfer from the attachment to the crop elevator is not affected.
