The single rotor combine is the logical evolution of years of designing, testing and listening to
customers. Conventional combines offer excellent performance in specific areas. But single rotor
combines are simply better all round.
John Deere invests more than any other agricultural equipment manufacturer in research and
development. Now we’ve created the S-Series. Developed in Europe, it’s also built in Europe.
Designed for heavy, dense crops and high capacity, it doesn’t just harvest more tonnes per hour,
it minimises losses and broken kernels so more than 99% of the grain goes into your tank and that
means more money in your pocket.

Increasing distances to fi elds and more contracting work are also trends we
observed. But we also notice the need to train operators more professionally
and manage people, machines and data
through more professional systems. in designing the new S-Series, we fully
focused on the needs and wishes of our
customers: more performance at low
loss levels even on hillsides going up or
downhill, less sensitivity and easier
adjustment of the whole combine to make the operation possible, even for inexperienced drivers. Weather conditions resulting in down crop
occur more often which can slow
down harvesting signifi cantly. better than ever: cleaninG shoe,

ManaGeMent functionality
The new DynaFlo Plus cleaning shoe has
been optimised by our engineers from the ground up. Through the adjustment of the crop fl ow and air fl ow speeds, we were able to achieve maximum throughput and minimal losses. We did not just extend the cleaning shoe to
the rear – we completely re-designed it. We have kept proven elements such as
the pre-chaffer and the fan type. We consciously decided against
including active cleaning shoe levelling
due to the excellent performance of our
cleaning shoe on slight side slopes. This was the result of our research and
confi rms what our customers already know: “if there’s a side slope, you need
HillMaster. But for slopes under 7%, you can do without.”

600r and 600f
The 600R range has a fi eld-tested, proven design incorporating optimum features to improve your
harvest. It has all the components you’ve come to expect from John Deere, including a large diameter
auger, stainless steel feed plates and the linear
knife drive. The 600F features a fl exible knife that can be raised or lowered by 15 cm and is controlled directly from the cab – making it perfect for harvesting close to the ground. A rapeseed header attachment is available for both versions.
The 600PF header with head-fi rst crop fl ow processes short stalked grains, laid and
long-growing crops with the same superb effi ciency, consistency and 10% more performance than the 600R. It takes just 15 minutes to convert for rapeseed. The new 640PF with a large 760 mm auger diameter is
the ideal partner for a large S-Series in tough
rape seed harvesting conditions.
The ultimate header for harvesting a variety of
crops, with an unbeatable conversion time of under 3 minutes without the need for tools. With the longest table on the market, you won’t lose any grain and thanks to the longest adjustable table length of 800 mm, you can also respond to changing conditions in the fi eld from the comfort of the cab. With up to 6 individual fi xed sensors adjusting the height of the table, your fi eld will look like it has been given a close shave.

Xtra capacity
feederhouse: perfect
crop flow and
threshing from
the very beginninG
The robust S-Series feederhouse is the ultimate
foundation for perfect results. The heavy duty chains
and large feeder slats are designed for the toughest
of conditions such as corn or rice harvest. The new
wear plates are durable and do not need to be
changed in your machine’s lifetime. The slip clutch
has an incredible capacity of 1200Nm forward
and 1400Nm reverse. What’s more, largest small
grain and corn headers can be used in the highest
yield conditions.
In the event that the feederhouse becomes blocked,
the strongest mechanical reverser will help get everything
out easily and begin harvesting again as quickly as possible.
Headers of up to 12.20 m width (up to 9.15 m in the HillMaster
version) as well as corn headers of up to 16 rows are no
problem at all.
Pivoting mid floor concept
The exclusive pivoting mid-floor concept of the
S-Series contains full length extension from pivot
point forward to the feed drum which enables
more feeding capacity by deflecting the entire
internal feederhouse components instead of only
the front drum.
In high volume crops this feature ensures better
engagement of crop material and smoother
conveyance to the threshing and separating
components of the combine.
Variable Speed for large corn heads
The exclusive 5-speed PowerShift transmission matches crop
conditions, intake and ground speed via a button on the multifunction control handle. It can transmit up to 202kW to corn heads
of up to 16 rows.
High capacity
The wide cross-section and low profile roller increases throughput
and the 4 chain feeder system handles dense, high yielding crops.

3 equal crop streams
50% More feedinG
capacity coMpared to
hybrid coMbines
The 270° feeding concept is unique to John Deere. It ensures a smooth transition from a tangential crop fl ow from the beater to an axial crop fl ow for the rotor. More space in the front of the rotor makes this transition easier and less
power consuming. Power which can be used for more effective threshing.
single rotor
Multiple tasks: threshing
The single rotor is what makes the S-Series so unique. It gives you clear advantages over other, more traditional and hybrid systems: 1
Instead of splitting the crop fl ow in two it keeps a single crop fl ow which consumes less power. The large rotor diameter generates higher inertia than smaller rotors enabling lower rotational speeds. The result? Better straw and grain quality. The “crop on crop threshing” of the rotor allows the effi cient threshing even if not all crop hits the concave resulting in a far wider “cross section area” than a tangential threshing system. 6
one coMbine – all crops
it doesn’t matter if you’re harvesting large areas of a single crop or moving
from crop to crop, the S-Series offers true multi-crop capability. Tested in 36 different crops, you can customise every single component from
the header through to the rotor and residue management system. Crop conversion is done quickly and easily with excellent access to the rotor and fast header conversion e.g. of the 600X. Conversion from small grain to rapeseed can even be done at the touch of a button. The dual range separator drive can be shifted easily with one lever to change the speed, for example corn harvest.

heavy duty Grates

heavy Duty Separator grates with dual row
interrupter bars are available for tough, green small grain conditions to loosen up the crop mat
and improve separation capacity. The thickness of the straw mat is reduced over
the conical threshing area. In the front area the easiest to thresh grain is removed through gentle
and effi cient crop on crop threshing. In the rear part of the cone the remaining crop is threshed. The overall effect is a very gentle threshing for
the best possible grain quality and the highest power effi ciency.
The discharge beater ensures reliable and even feeding of the chopper. The grate underneath the beater adds additional separation capacity.

maintains a consistent concave clearance for
more performance in large crop yields and
uneven feeding. Enables runnning the concave wider for more crop on crop threshing. 16 |
‘pull and release’ threshing and separating
The off centre rotor creates a ‘pull and release’ effect with the crop
compressed at the bottom as it passes the grates and is then released as it moves towards the top of the rotor. This produces a mixing effect which moves the grain to the outside of the crop fl ow where it is separated through the grates far more effi ciently.
single rotor Multiple tasks:
In the rear part of the rotor, separation of the remaining grains becomes prominent. John Deere exclusively offers the choice of two rotor types: We recommend the
TriStream Rotor for lower MOG (material other than grain) conditions. The VariableStream Rotor is more more conical at the front. Also, the amount of time crop stays in the rotor can be changed from the cab. This will vary threshing intensity to react to moist or dry conditions during the day. The Variable stream rotor is recommended in rice, where conditions are damp, wet and green or
in diffi cult straw conditions.
VariableStram Rotor – be flexible to conditions
On the S-Series it is possible to slow down or speed up crop fl ow from the cab. The operator can choose between two settings. In the standard position the crop makes 7 full rotations for higher separation of grain. However, if the operator wants to improve straw quality or reduce chaff load on the cleaning shoe in brittle conditions, he can switch to the advanced position. In this position the straw exits the rotor after only 5 rotations. | 17
high inertia separating
adjustable top vanes
replaceable separator tines
The rear section of the rotor is designed for
maximum separation. Here the diameter of the rotor and the inertia created is the biggest. This leads to increased separation versus competitive
solutions with smaller rotor diameters. The large fi ngers loosen up the crop mat and ensure trapped grain can escape from the straw. At the John Deere exclusive variable stream rotor the top vanes can keep the material for
more or less time in the rotor for more aggressive
separation or better straw quality.
The use of separation tines instead of separation
elements improves the mixing effect and helps
move the grain to the outside of the crop fl ow for better separation, even in tougher, green straw conditions. 2

low energy discharge
even chopper feeding
The tapered rear cone allows material to expand
before it is discharged through the 8-wing discharge beater. This improves power effi ciency and straw quality.
The discharge beater pulls crop out of the rotor instead of the chopper which preserves the stalks. The impellers provide even distribution of the crop to avoid plugging and feed the entire width of the chopper. This ensures lower knife wear, better chopping quality and more effi cient distribution.
18 |
simple adaption from crop to grass
designed for high yields
With its 2 speed fan drive, the cleaning fan can be converted from crop to grass in a matter of minutes. Simply adjust the belt instead of having to swap the pulley.
The returns are guided back through the cylinder and distributed evenly over the entire width of the threshing cylinder. The material is recorded and then displayed in the cab via the electronic sensors. To manually check the return constituents, there is an inspection fl ap just outside the cab door.
the new dynaflo plus
cleaning shoe:
large, light and less sensitive
How can you considerably enlarge the sieve surface without adding any weight to the overall combine? The developers at John Deere have found a brilliant answer to all of these questions. The use of an innovative, lightweight design and an aluminium structure resulting in reduced weight, which reduces peak engine loads and cuts down on vibration. Performance wise this means the harvested crop stays on the sieves longer, maximising
cleaning time and minimising losses. The S-Series is designed for the highest capacity. With a total sieve area of 5.10 m² (according to international standards (ANSI/ASAE S343.4 T – the area of the opening if the louvers are removed, not including the fi nger, step pan or waterfall area) is one of the largest on the market.
through intensive testing, we have developed a completely new combine
cleaning system which is resistant to adjustment errors.
For optimum results in changeable conditions, it does not need to be constantly readjusted, making life considerably easier for the operator.
conveyor augers
The heavy duty conveyor augers ensure active crop fl ow on slopes and under tough harvest conditions, meaning the cleaning shoe can be evenly loaded even in damp or sticky conditions.
| 19
new fan design
2-stage pre-cleaning
The new fan ensures peak performance with up to 740 m³ of air generated. A steep pressure curve delivers high pressure and less volume loss. About 30% goes to the front chaffer at high speeds, the rest goes to the rear chaffer and sieve.
Unique to the S-Series is DynaFlo Plus cleaning shoe. This is the additional fi xed raised front chaffer which helps thin the crop mat and cleans up to 40 percent of the free grain before it reaches the main chaffer. A key difference to the W/T Series as it adds not only more area but also more effective separation to match the capacity of the S Series combines.

The sieve, with its considerably enlarged surface, offers the highest cleaning performance. Thanks to SlopeMaster, you can effortlessly conquer slopes of up to 7%. The large sieve area and the perfect air distribution reduce further possible cleaning shoe losses on light slopes. For slopes up to 22%, HillMaster slope compensation comes in handy because it not only reduces walker losses but also cleaning shoe losses.
The new sieves are provided with mounts that
can be installed and removed in a matter of minutes.

Active tailings
management –
The active tailings system is a major feature of
the S-Series. It increases the capacity of the combine
by taking care of tailings separately and makes
adjustment of the combine easier. It delivers better
grain quality at low loss levels and contributes to
more quality straw output and lower fuel
Thanks to the re-thresher taking care of tailings, the concave
can be opened more widely which lowers power and fuel
consumption and improves straw quality. The bottom sieve
can be opened as well as tailings are less which increases
The elevator with rubber paddles constantly lifts
the material up to avoid material piling up and
being “processed” multiple times.
A “mini”-threshing drum with real rasp bars and
concave separates kernels still sitting in the ears.
Focus is again to be not too aggressive and to
avoid grain damage. The concave has two settings
controlled by a spring lever to switch between
small grain and corn quickly and conveniently.
The material is distributed by an auger on top of
the chaffer. The opening at the bottom of the
auger is triangular in shape so material is spread
evenly instead of dropping at one spot, avoiding
overload of the cleaning system.
| 21
If you have rolling terrain and need to go up or
down hill frequently, Active Terrain Adjustment
automatically adjusts fan speed, chaffer position
and sieve position.
This exclusive system even considers the type of crop
harvested. As rape seed for example is very sensitive
to fan speed changes, the chaffer and sieve settings
are changed first before adjusting the fan speed.
Overall, the combine will maintain ground speed
and minimise grain loss with the varying landscape
changes. Active Terrain Adjustment increases total
combine capacity on uphill slopes to drastically
reduce grain loss. And it reduces your tailings
and gives you a cleaner grain tank sample, too.
But perhaps the most impressive thing: All this is
done automatically so the operator can focus on
the harvest operation.

Uphill Slopes
Downhil Slopes
Going up a hill both the chaffer and sieve are opened while fan speed
is reduced to stop grain from going out of the rear. The cleaning system
performance increases up to 40% on inclines up to 10 degrees.
On declines, the chaffer and sieve close, while fan speed increases to keep
grain from pushing towards the front of the machine.
The tailings volume is reduced by up to 50% resulting in a cleaner grain tank
22 |
harveST WiThouT ComPromiSe,
even on SloPeS
slopes of up to 7%
John Deere has created a series
of simple solutions aimed at
avoiding cleaning shoe losses
on light hillside locations:
The conveying augers move the material
evenly onto the cleaning shoe. The slope divider plates on top of the chaffer
sieve prevent crop escaping when going
down hill before it has been cleaned.
For cleaning, there’s nothing better than a large sieve surface – except an even
larger surface. With the S-Series, the material is cleaned for a longer time on
our extra-long and extra-large sieves.
22% slope coMpensation with hillMaster
HillMaster is available for the S670 to the S690. Since the grain tank stays level, you can fi ll it up and save on unloading stops. The improved side-to-side weight distribution gives you more traction and stability and the level cab helps operators stay focused and productive all day.

unloaD in reCorD Time
The S-Series helps you save valuable time even with unloading. The 14,100 L capacity grain tank, can be unloaded in record time: up to 135 l/sec. The large diameter unloading auger and low speeds are especially gentle on grains. The cross auger cover plate for the grain tank can be adjusted without the need for tools, so the unload rate can be altered quickly for different crops.
Visibility is excellent too. With a large rear window, you always have a clear
view into the illuminated grain tank and
you can always take a sample from next
to the cab. The HarvestMon system can determine the grain through the mass
fl ow sensor. This system is simple, reliable, can withstand side slopes and is easy to calibrate. Relevant data is displayed in the cab and can be recorded on the optional greenStar
2630 and can be transferred to the Operations Center on MyJohnDeere.com – either manually via uSb device or
automatically via Wireless Data Transfer
(WDT). non-stop harvestinG
and on-the-Go unloadinG
The electronic engine management
provides up to 37 KW/50 hp extra
performance during unloading while
driving so you can continue harvesting
with full power. With John Deere Machine Sync, the combine operator can have the trailer drive alongside
the combine while unloading. Once in position, the combine operator can control the ground speed and steering
of the trailer. Grain trailer operators can see the grain tank levels of all working
combines and can be “called” to empty the fullest tank. This saves time, diesel, nerves and minimises soil compaction. | 25

If you are looking for even distribution of the chopped straw this option
is the ideal solution. The position is low in height to reduce the exposure
to side winds. At the same time it accelerates the straw to a maximum
speed to enable an even spread pattern.
The direction of spread as well as the spread width can be conveniently adjusted from the cab. When changing driving direction the push of a button is suffi cient to mirror the direction of spread as well.

tough spots or go uphill with a full grain tank.
ProDrive also saves you money. Engine Speed Management automatically controls the engine’s
rpm during road transport. The result is fuel savings of 10 to 20 %.

Maximum traction
all conditions
The John Deere tracks spread the load evenly over all five traction wheels.
So, in challenging conditions, you’re still harvesting when others have
stopped. And the best: You decide when to use them as tracks and wheels
are interchangeable anytime.
The closed loop hydraulic system also means power is delivered smoothly
and evenly. It helps minimise any potential soil damage and ensures excellent
traction, even at low speeds.
Thanks to the narrower body of the S-Series we were able to build tracks
that are shorter, but wider. This gives you an extra large footprint for
maximum traction and it spreads the load across a wider area. So you’ll also
enjoy lower soil compaction and avoid the additional cost of deep tillage.
The shorter track length also has the added advantage of reducing soil
damage at headlands.
MaXiMuM traction
reduced soil coMpaction
lower transport width
low compaction
off-centre pivot point
With a massive 1.18 m² of contact area per side, the advantages of tracks over tyres are easy to see. You’ll be able to keep harvesting in wet conditions when conventional wheel driven machines have long stopped.
The low turning point of the track unit leads to pivoting upwards of the
tracks instead of downwards. In muddy conditions the track unit is not pushing itself deeper into the ground but rather out of the dirt.
| 33
excellent traction
smooth transport
Our tracks feature a drive wheel which grabs the rubber teeth inside the belt to move it forward. There is no slippage as the system does not rely on friction like others. Add to this our belt with optimised tread pattern and you’ll enjoy better traction in muddy and wet conditions.
The hydro-pneumatic suspension cushions dynamic loads so you won’t feel
the road when travelling at high speeds between fi elds. To reduce the wear during transport the front and rear roller´s hydraulic pressure is lowered.

longer belt life
even loading
The drive system (which is not based on friction) ensures even tension and reduced slippage for improved comfort and longer belt life.
The rollers and central carriage mechanism are independently suspended
for more even loading across the entire area of the track which is in contact
with the ground.

a power boost for agriculture. Made by John deere.
John Deere is one of a few manufacturers of agricultural machines to develop and produce its own
engines. This delivers clear beneifts as agricultural machines and on-road vehicles have completely different requirements. Whereas lorry engines used by other makes are designed for travel at variable engine speeds and low torque levels, John Deere engines feature heavier duty housings and bearings – designed for running at rated speed all day while still being able to cope with abruptly changing conditions and varying, often high toque levels, during harvest time. 1
More power, more cost
effectiveness, more throughput
The John Deere PowerTech Engines used in the new S-Series deliver even
more power while offering unsurpassed fuel efficiency for diesel and diesel
exhaust fluid (DEF). At the same time, they fulfill strict Tier IV emission
regulations. The engine power is an impressive 460KW/625PS at the top of
the range model, the S690.

Diesel particle filter
enhanced cooling
The fi lter regenerates itself automatically and works in tandem with the diesel oxidation catalyst to ensure clean air. The entire system is encapsulated within a separate housing and is completely
segregated from its surroundings by means of overpressure.
The cooling packs are large enough to get you through hot
harvest days and aren’t bogged down with an overly complex design. The position next to the engine allows unobstructed air circulation around the engine and prevents dust and dirt
from settling in the corners. The slim size and low fl ow rate of the cooling package effectively prevent it from clogging. 2

drivetrain designed for the utmost reliability
engine speed management
As standard, the S-Series comes equipped with discs instead of belt clutches. It shifts gears in a highly controlled fashion, keeping the belt from “squeaking” when the machine is turned on and increasing its operating life. The drum’s high fl ywheel mass ensures extremely even load distribution, preserving the drivetrain. The Posi-Torq Variable Drives automatically tension the drive belt and prevent it from slipping.
The engine speed management improves the fuel
effi ciency by reducing the engine RPM from 2200 (and 2100 for 13.5 L engine) to 1600 revolutions during on-road travel and to 1200 revolutions when the machine
is standing (such as at traffi c lights).

autotrac: autoMatic steerinG for
Greater precision
With our satellite-based hands-free AutoTrac system, every pass matches the full cutting width
of your platform. This helps you reduce your input costs and boost your combine performance – even at night, in dusty conditions, on hillside
terrain and even after long hours of operation. The automatic steering relieves your operators
and allows them to concentrate on their yield. When working with multiple machines in a fi eld, the AutoTrac guidance lines can be shared from one machine to another so that all combines can harvest at the full cutting width. They can also be shared with the tractor or grain trailer operator so the machines can drive exactly
parallel to each other during unloading. Coverage map sharing visualises on the screen
where other combines have already been in the fi eld and you get a more accurate calculation of the total hectares harvested as you have full
visibility of all combines in the fi eld, the passes made, header width and area covered. autoTrac rowSense adds even more comfort
and productivity to corn harvest. It merges GPS based automatic steering and row guidance – leveraging row feelers on the header – to
increase harvesting speed. When row feeler information is not available, for example in down crop situations, the GPS signal takes over. autoMatic coMbine adJust (aca)
Standard on all models within the series,
Automatic Combine Adjust helps you effortlessly transition between crop types. By using standard John Deere values and retrieving data on your
current threshing and separating conditions,
it automatically adapts your machine to optimise
its performance. You can then use these proposed values or modify and save them for
later use. harvestsMart: always the riGht speed
The harvestSmart system automatically adapts
the speed of the combine to maximise capacity or minimise losses with the highest output. Sensors on the threshing cylinder, the engine
and the dedicated loss sensors control
the system with the goal of minimising losses
or maximising the throughput rate.

Modern farming isn’t just managing a business – you are managing a complex enterprise.
That’s why maximising performance and productivity depends on being well connected.
The Operations Centre on MyJohnDeere.com makes things easy. it’s your central location
to connect to your fields, machines, operators and partners. Simply log-on from any
internet-capable device.
Basically, the John Deere Operations Centre fits
your farm into your pocket. On one central map,
you can get an overview of ongoing operations,
follow your machines during the day as well as
visualise and manage your fields and agronomic
data. Upload field boundaries, yield and moisture
maps from your GreenStar 2630 display. All
information is easily accessible and clearly arranged
on a map. From the Operations Centre, you can also
connect to your John Deere dealer or other trusted
business farmers to share data – harvest results
with your customers – for instance.
It all starts with machine-to-office connectivity.
With John Deere’s telematic system, JDLink, you
always know where your machines are, what and
how they’re doing. You basically have two options
delivering different levels of functionality. JDLink
Access includes machine location and performance
monitoring, e.g. fuel consumption and machine
utilisation tracking. Essential functionality is even
available for non CAN-Bus tracking enabled
John Deere as well as non-John Deere machines.
On top of that, JDLink Connect delivers Remote
Display Access and Wireless Data Transfer to enable
machine optimisation, remote operator support
and seamless transfer of agronomic data (e.g. field
boundaries, yield maps) in one package.
Seamless data management
Data on yield or moisture can either be uploaded
manually to the Operations Centre, leveraging
a USB device or automatically with Wireless Data
Transfer to enable seamless and error-free
documentation. For older, non-JDLink machines
there’s also the possibility to transmit data via
Mobile Data Transfer, utilising your smart phone.
Once the data is available in the Operations Centre
you can – given, that you didn’t have time for
weight calibrations during harvest – retrospectively
calibrate your data and print it out in the form of
a report.
In addition, the Operations Centre lets you prepare
set-up information for the upcoming harvesting
season to ensure error-free documentation.
The files can be sent wirelessly to your equipment
where the date will pre-populate on the Greenstar
2630 display.

Go Harvest
Premium Combine Simulator
This simulator was designed for dealers or large fleet
owners and contractors to be able to train operators
in a cost efficient way. It is commercially available
for customers and was rewarded at Agritechnica
with a silver medal. It features real cab controls and
a real-world operator environment and simulated field
conditions on HD-TVs. Instructions and tasks are
given on the TV screens in a gaming environment
with several levels. It starts at simple operation of
the main controls, goes over attaching front-end
equipment, harvesting under different conditions
and different crops, to unloading on-the-go or on
the headland. At the final level operators have to
optimise the combine and solve specific tasks such as
high losses or get a better grain tank sample. Scores
measure the progress of the trainee at each level.
The simulator offers off-season training in a safe
environment with clear benefits in timing, cost
and effectiveness. Result: A perfectly trained operator
at the start of the season from day one.

unloading on-the-go
The full automation of the combine unloading
operation is exclusively provided by John Deere.
Machine Sync enables the creation of a network of
combine operators and the logistic chain:
1. Control grain tank fill level
The grain trailer operator is able to see the location of
all the combines in the network, their direction of
travel and the grain tank fill level. Based upon this he
can effectively decide which combine to go to next.
2. Combine operator takes control of tractor speed
Once he arrives near the combine his tractor is
controlled by the combine via a click on the screen.
The tractor and grain trailer is kept in parallel to
the combine and the speed is synchronised with
the combine, too.
3. Combine operator steers tractor
The combine operator can control the forward
and side distance of the tractor relative to his
combine and can unload and fill the grain trailer
while keeping full focus on the harvesting operation.
There is less risk for damage or grain spillage and
less traffic soil compaction on the field.

The initial purchase price of a combine is only one element in calculating the profitability of
an investment into a new combine. To get the full picture the running costs over the whole
lifetime have to be considered. And here the S-Series has clear advantages.
The S-Series design features a single rotor concept
with a low amount of moving components.
The crop-engaging wear parts are designed to last.
Tested and proven on a large scale worldwide on
small grain farm operations as well as in the
abrasive conditions of rice or soybean harvest or
wet and dry corn conditions, the S-Series concept
earned its reputation for reliability.
The single rotor design features less drives, belts,
chains and bearings as well as less grease points
compared to other concepts. The superior access
to the rotor at the heart of the combine ensures
maintenance is easy and convenient - a prerequisite
to make sure it is done properly. No daily grease
points and in general long maintenance intervals,
keep you in the field and reduce maintenance times
and costs.
S-Series combine owners can benefit from more
than 32% cost advantage on drive train parts.
A straight forward drive concept with a low amount
of belts and chains keeps your costs at a minimum.
In addition, genuine belts feature a special rubber
mix with aramid cords that have been designed for
heavy duty loads for the best performance.

Service and maintenance
made easy
The S-Series doesn’t just save you time in the field and on the road –
but also on maintenance and cleaning. To make these tasks as simple
and quick as possible, we always kept the operator in mind during
the design process:
–– No daily lubrication points
–– Easy access to the rotor, engine and cooling package are just few examples
–– A new air compressor with a 60 L reservoir and two connections, a 10 m hose
and accessories so your machine can be cleaned comfortably
Short conversion times between Corn and small grain
–– Changing the sieves just takes few minutes, adding de-awning plates to the rotor
is easy thanks to the good access.
–– The cover plate for the grain tank cross augers can be adjusted without any tools.
–– Converting from barley to rapeseed with the new S-Series and the 600X header
takes less than 5 minutes.
