This design goes way back to the old 9700 White harvester.Only they had a single large rotor. The largest rotor ever put in a harvester. The only problem was they loaded up the left hand side of the sieves, this was compensated by adjustable plates that let you direct the flow more evenly over the sieves. Worked to some degree but still loaded up the left hand side of the sieves first. Never put any grain out of the rotor always the left hand side of the sieves if you over loaded the machine. This machine with the twin rotors would have alleviated that problem. I still see the ghost of the old White hiding in this machine when I look at her. Buy the way I still have and operate a 9700 White in Australia. We bought it new back in the early 80s. I love this new machine I know by the design and what the old White can do just how well this new machine would operate. They have one of the simplest designs with very few moving parts, That is one of the main reasons way back that we bought the White!! Awesome video!! I was hoping to see an Ideal combine in this years harvest here in Manitoba, Canada but that’s not going to happen they tell me. 2019 harvest they will be available here under the Fendt flag here in North America!It's a pair of very beautiful machines I'm a fan of the Fendt brand! Big hug from the producers here in Brazil !!
I have a question, I noticed you were bumping back on the handle. Is this combine a hydrostatic or was it programmed to act more like a power shift
It's kind of humbling to know that I'll never see one of these machines in real life. Where I live, most people can only afford 30+ year old tractors and machines.
