Fendt Autodock™

Connecting couldn’t be simpler. Or faster. Or easier.​ 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 feederhouse ​frame mechanically locks the attachment. At the same time, two couplings push out to connect the PTO drives. AutoDock connects the multicoupler separately to the attachment and the machine. An RFID code, the “Ag tag,” detects the attachment and retrieves the last setting used for that unit. ​

9300 Series DynaFlex

Take it all in with the 9300 Series DynaFlex Headers. Available in widths from 30’ to 50’, the 9300 provides improved feeding with variable – speed gathering belt drive to promote smooth, even and efficient feeding in various conditions. With accumulators that absorb movement and increases response performance to increase the cutter bar coverage and flexibility up to 8” of cutter bar float. With dual mechanical cutter bar drives and a redesigned skid shoe providing enhanced durability for a better footprint on the soil, reducing wear while still providing the low cut height. ​

3300 Command Series Corn Head​

Improve residue management in your fields with the 3300 series corn head, available in chopping and nonchopping models. The stalk rolls are designed with point-to-point contact for increased aggression, while the chopping units will break down the stalks into smaller segments to promote better residue coverage. The slanted deck plate design helps strip the ears from the stalk more aggressively, decreasing butt-loss and kernel loss. To pick up down and tangled corn, the long, shallow snoots can handle even the toughest of harvesting conditions. The 3300 Command series corn head is designed for integration of Reichardt row sending and Headsight header height sensors.​

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 thresh the grain. The concaves ​are available in different configurations ​for the best results in any application. The clearance between the concave and rotor is hydraulically adjusted up to a maximum of 1.38 inches​. 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 eliminates ​edges for the product to stick to.

RotorFeeder feeding drum

The feed is vital

The​ 24” diameter RotorFeeder feeding drum passes a constant flow of crop to the rotors, guaranteeing optimal transfer and the best threshing results. The RotorFeeder speed is automatically controlled in proportion to the rotor speed – always at 70% of the rotor speed. The speed is adjusted to best match the rotor speed and the large transfer area, maintaining straw quality. The RotorFeeder also uses far less power during this process.

Feed and power requirement

Gentle feed, low power requirement

The height of each rotor tine is 5.5” (140mm)​. Perfectly separating ​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. with this 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 stratification pan. The rear grain pan collects the material discarded from the rotor tines and sends it backwards to the stratification pan. The makes full use of the stratification pan with the product well cleaned.

    Handles the hillsides with ease

    Thanks to IDEALbalance, the crop is evenly distributed across the sieves

    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% slopes, 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, designed for the single rotor.

    IDEALbalance can minimize the losses on a lateral slope up to 60%, without any complex steering

Center bars: Slope insensitivity of up to 15°

The 6 center bars (IDEAL 7, 8, 9) measure 5.9” (150mm)​ in height for a slope insensitivity of up to 15°. Loss sensors at the end of the shaker shoe help the operator adjust the machine to the best possible configuration.

Curved drop steps: Significantly increased air volumes

The IDEAL 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.

Separate post-threshing:
Specially designed returns for maximum performance and the best threshing. The product is threshed out by the auger and passed on to the grain pan. This prevents any separating potential being lost at the processor. Threshing occurs between the auger and the interchangeable covers, which can be serrated or smooth depending on the intensity you want.

Superior cleaning:
The long startification pan, with six individual sections and high partitions and the long shaker shoes provide for exceptional cleaning in the Fendt IDEAL. Most short straw and chaff is separated from the grain on the first drop between stratification pan and intermediate floor. The second drop to the top sieve then separates the impurities further. A strong air flow ensures perfect cleaning results. The longest sieves on the market with the integrated partitions mean optimal grain quality. In order to deliver the best results under all conditions, the opening range of the sieves can be electrically adjusted from the cab.

Straw Management

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). ActiveSpread works with two hydraulic straw distributors, and the speed can be adjusted from the cab. This feature can distribute chaff as wide as 50' across.​

Grain tank and unloading.

Unprecedented unloading speeds

Choose the Streamer 6.0 with a 485 bushel (17,100 L) capacity and a 6 bushel/second (210 L/s) unload rate, or the Streamer 4.0 with 355 bushel (12,500 L) capacity and 4 bushel/second (140 L/s) unload rate. The enormous volume and increased unloading rate are just what you’d expect from the unprecedented output of the Fendt IDEAL. The key to the enormous speed is the huge diameter of the unloading auger – 18.9” (480mm) – allowing for simultaneous low speeds.​ Gently and with low power requirements, the grain tank is fully unloaded within 81 seconds.

Cover flaps above the augers in the grain tank floor control the discharge speed in five positions.

The large diameter of the discharge auger combines low speeds with high output. This ensures grain quality!

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

Perfectly adapted to matching maximum fuel efficiency with the potential output of the Fendt IDEAL. All engines comply with Tier 4 Final emissions and share a well-earned reputation for long service intervals. ​

Revolutionary AirSense® Cooling

Cooling is a crucial part of ensuring the engines always run efficiently and reliably, so 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 37.4” (950mm)​ reversible fan and a cooling area of 8.8 ft.² (2.7 m²)​. Dirt and dust never weaken the cooling performance. It’s a system so reliable you can work through an entire season without any manual effort.​

Fendt IDEAL chassis

Fendt IDEAL TrakRide

Developed in the AGCO Center of Expertise for track tractors, three track types with widths of 26” (660 mm), 30” (760 mm) or 36” (910 mm) are available options on all Fendt IDEAL models. The TrakRide system ensures exceptionally low ground pressure.​

Maximum propulsion

The IDEAL automatically (and intelligently) switches to 4WD mode independently and intelligently only when the adjusted pressure of the front axle is reached. With the differential lock on, the AWD is permanently on. When you steer the differential lock turns off, and after the maneuver comes back on again, which 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 – 9 mph or 0 – 25 mph (0 – 15 kph or 0 – 40 kph)​. Fendt MotionShift allows you to shift both gears conveniently during the ride using a button on the armrest. The speed can be easily controlled via the multi-function joystick. 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.

The IDEAL work place.

Fendt IDEALdrive

With an unobstructed, end to end view of the combine header, Fendt IDEALdrive reduces operator fatigue and stress during long harvesting hours. Fendt IDEALdrive has eliminated the steering and replaced it with a joystick steering solution. The left hand steers the combine by moving the joystick left and right, allowing accurate steering with less body movement. ​

IDEALdrive is so responsive that a slight movement of the hand is all that’s needed to make a steering adjustment in the field. Operator steering workload is decreased substantially while productivity is increased. ​


IDEALharvest is a revolutionary system that makes automatic adjustments to the combine, while harvesting based on operator preferences. Mass acoustic detection (MAD) sensors provide the date required for the Fendt IDEAL to automatically adjust to your pre-selected harvest strategy and achieve the best threshing results. ​

IDEALharvest also displays the machine’s crop flow in real time, so you can use the data to assess crop distribution in the machine. Based on the real-time values of the installed sensors, the transfer volumes and grain losses are displayed onscreen. The grain quality camera helps optimize the grain quality. ​

Workplace with the best view

The Fendt VisionCab was designed to offer you the perfect workplace with the best view over the attachment, with a window area of 356 ft.² (5.75 m²) ​and a 180° panoramic view. The low noise level of just 73 db keeps things as quiet as possible. And the expansive operator’s means even long-legged drivers can enjoy a comfortable seat.

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 toggle button for machine functions. There is also a small digital display for the key machine settings. The 10.4" Varioterminal 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.
