Unveiled to the public for the first time at Agritechnica 2017, the large Fendt IDEAL combine is proving its power in Europe this year in its second harvest season.
For the European market, the large combine series will be expanded to include a new top-of-the-range 790 hp model which also now features IDEALDrive – the steering system without a steering wheel.
This latest top-end model offers a max. power of 790 hp and is equipped with a new MAN 16.2-litre engine that meets the European emissions standard, Stage V.
It also features a new cleaning system and the Dual Helix separator, which customers will know from the Fendt IDEAL 8 and Fendt IDEAL 9. This combination increases throughput with the highest grain quality and lowest grain losses, increasing the area coverage of the new large combine.
With the Fendt IDEAL 10, Fendt introduces the first standard combine in Europe to be operated entirely without a steering wheel.
With Fendt IDEALDrive steering, the machine is controlled proportionately to the movement of a joystick on the left, with all the same functions on the joystick on the right armrest. For easy access to the driver’s seat, the left armrest can be folded up.
The Fendt IDEALDrive steering system will be available exclusively on the Fendt IDEAL. It gives the best view of front threshing attachments and offers the perfect overview, even on the road. The unique system complies with all European vehicle and traffic regulations.
The Fendt IDEAL 10 can be ordered from July 2020, ready for the 2021 harvest.
