DULUTH, Ga. — AGCO Corporation will feature its new Fendt® IDEALTM combine at the 2019 National Farm Machinery Show. Cleaned up and polished after harvesting demonstrations in fields in fall 2018, the Fendt IDEAL combine is the industry’s latest in harvesting innovation. Show attendees should plan extra time to see IDEAL at the AGCO display — Lots 7801 & 7823 — on the east side of South Wing B at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky, Feb. 13-16, 2019.

“Producer experience and field testing for Fendt IDEAL combines has been integral in the launch of this machine,” says Caleb Schleder, tactical marketing manager for Harvesting at AGCO. “We are excited North American farmers harvested their crops with the combine last fall, and proud it made a positive impression on producers who sat behind the wheel.”

This axial combine sets a new standard for harvesting automation, blending Fendt’s tradition of engineering innovation with the most advanced operating technology, to deliver what producers told AGCO they want in a combine — in-field efficiency, unfailing uptime, totally simple operation and better grain quality. These are some of the attributes that earned it a 2019 AE50 Award from the American Society of Agriculture and Biological Engineers.

During NFMS, producers can learn about the IDEAL combine through the IDEAL Experience, a self-guided walking tour of the combine housed within a grain bin at the AGCO exhibit.

As a full-line equipment manufacturer, AGCO will showcase many of its other popular and innovative products from high-speed White Planters to the latest Massey Ferguson® balers and Massey Ferguson, Challenger® and Fendt tractors of all sizes.
