The Fendt IDEAL 7 and 8 have three feed chains in the crop elevator. Fitted with four feed chains, the output is even higher with the Fendt IDEAL 9 and 10. The front feeding drum is closed on all models. The chain tension and height can be adjusted easily by turning a shaft to switch the height between 50 mm and 98 mm to accommodate all crop types.
A key differentiator is the Single (Fendt IDEAL 7) or Dual Helix (Fendt IDEAL 8 to 10) processor that provides the highest output and best threshing quality with gentle crop handling and low energy consumption. The RotorFeeder feeding drum passes the crop from below to the rotors and its speed is set proportionally to the rotor, guaranteeing the best threshing results.
IDEALharvest sets a new benchmark in automated machine settings. Acoustic MAD sensors and smart algorithms to provide the data required to quickly and easily select from three key harvesting strategies. The rotor and fan speed, top and bottom sieve openings and forward speed are continually optimised to suit the selected strategy for throughput, grain quality and fuel consumption.
The machine's crop flow is also displayed in real-time, allowing the data to be used 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 Cam helps optimise the grain quality even further with real-time views on your iPad connected via in-cab Wi-Fi.
To ensure that nothing but clean crop lands in the grain tank, the unique and ingeniously simple IDEALbalance system consists of a 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. This makes full use of the preparation floor and sieve, maximising the use of the sieve area.
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 and up to a 15-degree side gradient, which is a straightforward design that avoids up to 60% losses compared to flat pans
