MF IDEAL

Join the MF IDEAL revolution

The Ideal harnesses industry leading technology to deliver more grain at the best quality, for you. It’s the first “clean-sheet” design of a combine in 30 years—a machine based not on what has come before, but on what producers like you have told us they need, and what we’ve tested in some of the most rigorous trials ever initiated by a farm equipment manufacturer.

Over the past six years and continuing today, we’ve sought input from producers the world over. We’ve heard from combine operators who, collectively, grow every crop harvested by combines in practically every condition.

Key Benefits

Superb grain and straw quality

Superb grain and straw quality

The MF IDEAL’s low compression and extra-long rotors, which are gentle on straw, avoid contamination of the sample. The Dual Helix (double rotors) system on the MF IDEAL 8 and MF IDEAL 9 boasts the largest main threshing concave area on the market – a massive 1.66m² – 25% bigger than any other combine in the industry. This assures low grain losses at high output and delivers more grain in the tank per hectare. During threshing, low pressure on the straw mat damages less grain, producing a better quality, cleaner grain sample.

Ease-of-use

Ease-of-use

The new IDEALharvest™ self-adjusting function option makes life effortless for the driver. Using the grain-quality camera and unique Acoustic Sensors around the combine, a very straightforward dashboard can be brought up on the Tech Touch Terminal or the SmartConnect™ App which allows the operator to choose a combination of quality, performance and sample cleanliness for his harvest. The machine itself then fine-tunes the rotor speed, fan speed and sieve opening.

Working on slopes

Working on slopes

The MF IDEAL combines are fitted with the unique IDEALbalance™ grain-pan system. With no extra moving parts, the combination of the two specially-shaped under-rotor pans is insensitive to slopes up to 15% and places the grain mix in exactly the right position for the separation pan, sieve box and fan to produce a clean sample at high output.

Managing residue successfully

Managing residue successfully

The MF IDEAL combine makes incorporation easy as the new design of the chopper enables the material to be spread more evenly over a wider area. This is because the distribution of material from the ShortCut chopper can match the full width of the header, up to 12m using the unique, low powerrequirement ActiveSpread feature.

Exceptional cab comfort and visibility

Exceptional cab comfort and visibility

The MF IDEAL’s brand-new, ultra-quiet Vision Cab includes new additions such as a new ventilated seat, an optional large fridge unit and extra storage which make it even more comfortable and stress-free for the driver. A new information dashboard shows the combine’s vital statistics – for example, grain loss - in constant view. The ability to move the main Tech Touch terminal 90 degrees to the operator’s right further enhances visibility of the header.

Technology & Innovation

With simple gearboxes and fewer belts than other combines, the IDEAL offers a system designed to lead the industry in power-transfer efficiency and put muscle where the combine needs it the most. The shortest route is a straight line.

More threshing area, gentler on grain and straw. The IDEAL combine allows more space for a new threshing and separation rotor design that’s gentler on the crop—both grain and straw.
A workhorse with notable efficiency, MF IDEAL uses IDEALbalance to independently manage crop flow to excel on both flat and hilly terrain.
