Fendt high productivity combine harvesters

May - June 2022 | Back

In the combine harvester sector, Fendt offers two high-performance machines. The 5275 C SL self-levelling model with 5 straw walkers was developed for working on very steep terrain. Indeed, thanks to the SuperLevel self-levelling system, the machine can work with slopes of up to 38% in transverse inclination and can compensate for longitudinal inclination of 35% uphill and up to 8% downhill. The operator can manage the compensation via terminal: when the system is active, the threshing unit, grain tank, separation and cleaning systems such as the driver's cab, always maintain a horizontal position with respect to the ground. For this new model, the German manufacturer has developed two dedicated cutting decks - FreeFlow and PowerFlow - equipped with a power take-off located higher up precisely for working on steep slopes. For the Ideal series, Fendt offers the top of the Ideal 10 range, which has seen the introduction of a new engine, the 16.2-litre MAN, which complies with the Stage V emission standard. With a maximum output of 790 horsepower, a new cleaning system and with an implementation of the Dual Helix technology, already present on the Ideal 8 and 9 models, the Ideal 10 combine raises the performance bar even higher by minimising crop losses. The 4.84 metre rotor (diameter is 600 millimetres) - explains the German company in a technical note - makes it possible to separate the grain, minimising possible product contamination and without damaging the quality of the straw. Another technological plus of the top of the Fendt range is the IDEALDrive system, which optimises the view both when driving and working as it does not use the steering column. The system complies with European vehicle regulations and the provisions of the Highway Code.
