Fendt combine harvester scoops Red Dot award 

The Fendt IDEAL high-power combine harvester took Best of the Best Red Dot Award in the renowned design competition. Efficient, high-performance and groundbreaking in design was the verdict of the Red Dot Jury.

Only around one percent of the more than 6,300 submissions are awarded the specific Red Dot quality seal at the end of the process: Best of the Best.

The Fendt high-power combine harvester scored highly as one of the best design products in the commercial vehicle category, and now stands alongside the other award winners, such as the Ferrari Portofino or McLaren 720S from the sports car category, in the exclusive Red Dot group: Best of the Best 2018.

“This high-performance combine harvester features a groundbreaking, sophisticated design that is optimally oriented towards future requirements”, said the jury, which consists of independent design experts from around the world.

“Its dynamic form language is emotionalising and lends it a strikingly elegant appearance. Also fascinating is the advanced ergonomic design of the driver’s cabin with excellent all-around visibility. The IDEAL combine is extremely comfortable in use, very powerful and efficient.”
