Redefine your harvest with our combine.
The Fendt IDEAL was developed in the global AGCO Centres of Excellence for harvesting technology. Countless farmers and contractors from around the world were asked what combine requirements would make their IDEAL harvest. It's the culmination of this customer input, the combined experience of our developers and the chance to test the Fendt IDEAL all year round in different regions under the harshest operating conditions, that make the Fendt IDEAL the most modern and innovative combine on the market.

Fendt IDEAL combine
It's time for new dimensions.
Exceptional conditions require exceptional performance – both from us and our machines. A clear view of the cutter unit and in-feed with easy ergonomic steering. IDEALdrive brings ergonomics and efficiency to your working day.
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. The large intake auger delivers impressive production capacities. The reel is hydraulically driven. You can have the system adjust the reel speed automatically, which means less effort for the driver. The PowerFlow cutting unit offers enormous flexibility, switching easily between rapeseed and grain. Bothsided vertical knives ensure clean crop edges. For quick and easy transport, the stalk dividers just fold away. There are various Fendt PowerFlow tables to choose from for the different IDEAL models, the widest version spanning 12.22 m or 40 ft.
Always in the right position
With TerraControl™ table guidance 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, ground pressure, various pre-selectable cutting heights, lifting when reversing, reel speed, positioning and headland management – everything fully automatically.
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. At the same time, two couplings push out to connect the PTO drives. Autodock™ connects the multi-coupler separately to the attachment and the machine. An RFID code, the 'Ag tag' detects the attachment and retrieves the last settings used for that unit.
Superior rotors: Single and Dual Helix.
The IDEAL 7 is equipped with one rotor, the so-called Single Helix. With the Single Helix processor, the IDEAL 7 has a threshing concave area of 0.83 m² and a separation area of 1.44 m².
The IDEAL 8, IDEAL 9 and IDEAL 10 are equipped with the Dual Helix processor. With two rotors, these models have a concave area of 1.66 m². With a separation area of up to 2.88 m², the Dual Helix models offer optimum separation capacity and therefore the highest throughput.
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 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.
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.
The powerful Cyclone cleaning fan consists of three fan units with open sides for maximum air output. The fan speed can be hydraulically adjusted between 250 and 1400 rpm, to give you different speeds quickly and efficiently. The powerful airflow is split from the first drop stage, with a constant air flow generated over the entire length of the shaker shoe, giving you the best cleaning results.
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.
The long preparation floors, 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 preparation floor 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 fitted partitions mean optimal grain purity. In order to deliver the best results under all conditions, the opening range of the sieves can be conveniently and easily electrically adjusted from the cab. 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.
Chop and mix
Drop and mix
Separate chaff from straw
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
You have the choice
The Fendt VarioGuide automatic guidance system gives you a choice of different receivers from NovAtel® or Trimble®. Both offer a wide variety of correction signals with accuracies of up to +/- 2 cm. With the NovAtel receiver, the correction signals SBAS, TerraStar-L & C and RTK keep you on track. Choose a Trimble® receiver to use SBAS, RangePoint™ RTX™, CenterPoint RTX™ and RTK. If you lose your RTK signal due to the terrain, VarioGuide continues to work reliably up to 20 minutes thanks to the Trimble®-xFill™ or NovAtel® RTK Assist solution.
NovAtel and Trimble
Different correction signals, which allow you to carry on working for a time even if you lose the signal, are available for both NovAtel and Trimble systems.
