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.
