The following information is a Web Extra from the pages of Farm Journal. It corresponds with the article "Machinery Journal." You can find the article in the Farm Journal October issue.


Demonstration of John Deere Machine Sync

Once you press engage, the machine’s position and ground speed are a hands-off operation. Machine Sync provides the combine location and bin-fill status to the cart operator, who can determine how quickly the combine will need to unload; prioritize which combine to go to first when multiple combines are in the field; or call in additional carts as needed.


John Deere’s New Combine Cab

The cab featured on the S Series combines is the first all-new cab for the company’s harvesting lineup since 1989. It is 30% larger and features a side window design that gives the operator full view of the unload auger.


Grain Bin Extended at Push of a Button

The automated folding grain bin cover is optional on the new John Deere S Series combines and can completely extend or retract in 30 seconds. 


John Deere’s Flex Draper Head

John Deere introduces the 600FD HydraFlex Draper, which is available in 35- and 40-foot models and can run at ground speeds up to 10 mph.
