AGCO Corporation continues to show off its new Fendt IDEAL combine at events like the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky. The company first unveiled the machine at the 2018 Farm Progress Show.
“This is a “clean-sheet” of design combine,” said Caleb Schleder, tactical marketing manager for combines. “That means our engineers did not have any foundation other than what they gathered from voice of customers, so it truly is a combine that is built from our customers’ needs and wants in the marketplace today.”
Schleder said the machine connects necessary automation with visualization capabilities that help operators to make better decisions by using real-time information. He said new features like a larger, redesigned rotor and the industry’s largest grain tank have boosted productivity and capacity for farmers involved in the company’s demonstration program.
He encouraged growers to take a look at that opportunity for the coming growing season by visiting idealharvesting.com and exploring the IDEAL Elite program, an exclusive group for demonstration opportunities.
