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. | 5 up to 5% More perforMance with 40k in Minutes to the neXt field eXceptional Grain quality lowest cost of operation 6 | The baSiS For ToP PerFormanCe: CuSTomer FoCuS, TruST anD reliabiliTy 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, feederhouse and data 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.” | 7 “Made in Germany” quality from zweibrücken since 1863 Every idea had to meet our strict requirements. We did not pursue any idea that did not fulfill our strict requirements for user-friendly operation and maintenance. We also deployed forward-thinking technologies from other industries. For example, our cleaning shoe now features lightweight aluminium components. Our tests have led to the development of completely new connections with rivets that are commonly used in aircraft construction. This cleaning shoe has already proven itself by withstanding over 2,500 hours on the test bench. farming practice demand best in class chopping quality and residue distribution. This is why uniquely developed residue packages are available for European conditions. Due to the wide range of individual options John Deere ensures the outstanding performance of the S-Series combines in all crops and conditions. Over 20,000 hours testing in 53 countries and 36 different crop types makes the S-Series the most widely tested combine ever. That testing told us that no one combine configuration would meet every customer requirement. European crop density and high yielding conditions require adapted threshing and separating configurations for those tough conditions. No till or minimum till Field tests included not only wheat and canola but also rice, soya, wet corn, grass seed and many other crops to be found in different areas of Europe. From dry Spanish fields up to the wet challenging rape and wheat conditions around the UK and the Baltic coast. We’re well-known for our reliability – and this continues to be the main goal of our development. John Deere has been building combine harvesters since 1927. We are the largest combine harvester manufacturer in the world. To date, over 750,000 John Deere combine harvesters have been produced. 8 | spacious cab John deere remote display access speeds up to 40 km/h Excellent all-round visibility and low noise level.

A flexible all-rounder or a specialist for specific challenges? John Deere offers you a wide range of harvest headers so you can find just the right solution tailored to your needs and expectations – giving you complete peace of mind that you are always using the full potential of the S-Series. John Deere gives you a choice of headers with passive crop flow (600R, 600F, 600X) or active crop flow (600PF or 600D) in varying widths. Further information about John Deere headers can be found in the header brochure. | 11 The iDeal heaDer For every CroP 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. 600pf 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. 600d Convert from crop to crop in just 5 minutes with the 600X header The 600D* also features a head-fi rst active crop feeder. The crop is transported along a rubber belt. The height control, via gauge wheels and optional sensors, as well as the hydraulic cutting height adjustment, make for the perfect stubble height. A rapeseed kit is also available. specialist 600c The 600C corn header offers you maximum reliability due to its strong chains and unique loss-minimising collection concept. Headers up to 16 rows, rigid or folding, including header trailer solutions for the larger heads are available in different row spacings. *Not available for combines with the Hillmaster system 600X 12 | 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. | 13 1200 NM slip clutch designed for maximum capacity Excellent visibility Quick header hook-up The long feederhouse and low angle gives the operator a clear view to the header. The multi-lever coupler connects all the hydraulics and electrics as well as the header latching pins with one operator movement. Rapid unblocking In the unlikely event that the feederhouse becomes blocked, the powerful reverser will get you harvesting again in moments. 14 | 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. 5 4 4 effective stone protection large stones simply fall into the Feed accelerator Stone Trap (FAST) before they can enter the machine and cause any damage. FaST stone trap | 15 heavy duty Grates progressive threshing even transition 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. 1 2 3 2 3 7 a sinGle rotor concept confiGured to fit european conditions 5 6 7 high capacity feeding even feeding active concave isolation (aci) The 8 wing beater improves feeding, reduces noise levels and lowers power consumption. The crop is divided into 3 equal streams for balanced loading of the rotor. This maximises the capacity of the rotor. It also preserves straw quality as it prevents crop building up in one part of the rotor with potential damage to the straw. 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 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. Threshing Feeding rotor 1 single rotor Multiple tasks: separating 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. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. VariableStram Rotor – be flexible to conditions 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 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 3 4 5 2 3 4 1 6 varistreaM rotor better crop and Grain separation with one switch 5 6 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. 1 2 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. 5 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. 6 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. 3 4 one of the larGest cleaninG systeMs on the Market with up to 5.9 M² 7 8 7% hillside performance in base 22% optional easy removal 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. 20 | Active tailings management – PERFECTION IN ACTION 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 consumption. 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 capacity. PROTECTING GRAIN QUALITY The elevator with rubber paddles constantly lifts the material up to avoid material piling up and being “processed” multiple times. GENTLE THRESHING 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. EVEN DISTRIBUTION ON THE SIEVE 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 ACTIVE TERRAIN ADJUSTMENT 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. Active terrain adjustment automatically adjust the cleaning shoe settings 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 sample. 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. | 23 HILLMASTER 100% PRODUCTIVITY on SLOPES of UP TO 22% 24 | 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 Less unloading cycles less time lost unloading optimum filling of trailers Easier in-field logistics less grain spillage during unloading No damage of windrows for perfectly dry straw Space-saving fold Improved visibility Unloading auger The optional folding 6.90 m or 7.90 m unloading auger saves space during storage in your barn and assists manoeuvring in confined spaces. A camera mounted on the unloading auger spout improves visibility. To ease unloading on-the-go the picture can be transferred wirelessly into the cab monitor of the tractor driving next to the combine. Unloading augers in various lengths enable unloading on-the-go and maintain sufficient clearance to operate headers up to 12.20 m for on-the-go unloading. 26 | RESIDUE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS DESIGNED TO PERFORM RIGHT FROM THE START Our residue management offers a choice of 3 different chopper systems. It is designed to perform from the very beginning to enable fine cut, even and wide spread or a good straw quality for baling. Our Premium and Intermediate systems are equipped with a 100 knife, extra fine cut chopper, making sure it can be incorporated into the soil easily to release the full fertilisation effect as quickly as possible. Our Premium system also let’s you switch from dropping to chopping at the touch of a button. It’s a real time-saver that soon pays for itself. For example you can quickly go for chopping headlands or parts of the field with low yields or green straw.

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. 30 | Get there quicker, be done faster Spend more time harvesting and less time travelling between fields. With its automatic ProDrive transmission, the S-Series allows speeds of up to 40 km/h on roads. Intelligent speed management to save fuel FOUR WHEEL DRIVE TO MOVE ON IN TOUGH CONDITIONS The intelligent engine speed management system reduces the engine speed on roads, saving fuel. And the overall width with tracks is just 3.50 m to pass narrow roads, bridges etc With the optional four-wheel drive in combination with the front-differential lock and increased torque on the Pro-Drive transmission, even bad weather can’t stop you from bringing in your crop. Push button shifting Shifting is made easy with the optional push button shift transmission. Simply bring your combine to a standstill, push one of the three buttons and let the combine do the rest. Once you bring the joystick into the neutral position the park brake is engaged automatically. | 31 cruise between fields in comfort at 40 km/h The ProDrive advantage ProDrive transmission gives you precise control of your ground speed across two infinitely variable speed ranges. You simply set one range for your typical harvesting speed and the other for transport. All you then have to do is press the button for your chosen range and control the combine’s speed within that range by pushing and pulling the hydro lever. There’s no need to stop to change gear. It delivers you 64% more torque at a harvesting speed of 8 km/h to pull through 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 %. 32 | 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 3 4 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. 1 2 MaXiMiuM coMfort and still a top speed of 40 kM/h 5 6 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. 34 | 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. 650 2,000 600 1,800 550 1,600 500 1,400 450 1,200 400 1,000 350 800 300 600 250 400 200 1,200 1,300 1,400 1,500 1,600 1,700 1,800 1,900 2,000 consistent perforMance under torque (nm) horsepower (hp) S690 with 13.5 L engine varyinG load 200 2,100 Torque (Nm) Power (hp) 4 Model displaceMent power S690 13.5 l 460KW / 625PS S685 13.5 l 426KW / 579PS S680 13.5 l 403KW / 547PS S670 9.0 l 335KW / 455PS S660 9.0 l 285KW / 387PS John deere powertech engines John Deere’s PowerTech engines offer consistent performance for uniform engine speeds and deliver up to 50 hp extra power during grain tank unloading. | 35 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 3 unparalleled eXperience you can rely on: – over 7 million off-highway engines produced – over 22 million operating hours with exhaust after-treatment processes – over 60 million operating hours with Tier 3b engines – Over 200 million operating hours with variable geometry turbochargers and cooling exhaust gas recirculation – The use of a the same engine across numerous John Deere machines simplifi es maintenance thanks to uniform replacement components such as fi lters and oil – your John Deere sales partner is a trained engine specialist with long-term experience and can provide valuable support for all your challenges 5 6 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). 36 | a more eFFiCienT anD relaXing Way To WorK Welcome to one of the most productive and comfortable places to work in the industry. The S-Series’ roomy Premium Cab is loaded with a host of smart details to help you perform at your best while keeping you relaxed, even on long working days and under the toughest of harvesting conditions. And thanks to the tinted glass around the entire cab, the slimline cornerpost and highly ergonomic control elements, you always have a clear view – and are always in control. a great view The cab was designed specifi cally for combines. it provides an excellent view to the front and sides of your machine – such as when unloading the grain tank. | 37 Leather package for greater comfort Roomy instructor seat and refrigerator For extra comfort, a leather air suspension seat is available as an option for the Premium Cab. The hard-wearing leather upholstery is complemented by a matching leather-covered steering wheel. Even better, the seat is aircooled, making even the longest of harvesting days easier. The S-Series cab is one of the widest on the market. This means the passenger has just as much room as the operator.

Your technology advantage John Deere is committed to setting new standards in connected agriculture – because we believe that this offers tremendous potential to boost productivity, save valuable time and lower costs. We have identified the best technologies currently available on the combine market and brought them together in a single highly attractive package: – AutoTrac automatic steering – Connected customer support – Connectivity to Operations Centre – Interactive Combine Adjust – FarmSight Service Package Interactive Combine Adjust (ICA) ICA enables you to boost the performance of your combine, minimise losses and increase grain and straw quality. And best of all, you can let the system work on these goals simultaneously. AutoTrac automatic steering system AutoTac guidance reliably steers your combine from day to night, through dusty or on hilly terrain. This prevents costly overlaps or gaps and enables every operator to harvest at peak performance. You can expect up to 8* percent input savings and up to 14** percent productivity increase. | 41 up to 14% greater machine productivity* Go to the Operations Centre to allocate exact field locations for the the next harvesting campaign, track the work progress of your machines, easily assign work orders to your operators, view yield and moisture maps automatically sent from the field as well as create, analyse and share harvest reports with trusted advisors and customers. Connected customer support Leveraging the machine-to-office connectivity your John Deere dealer can (with your permission) maximise machine uptime through preventative maintenance. For example, he can remotely check machine health and identify potential issues before they actually stop you from working. With Remote Display Access you or your dealer have a live connection from the office to the GreenStar 2630 on the combine to assist the operator with machine setup and operation – without the need to drive out to the field. *From ‘Lohnunternehmen’ 1/2010 **From ‘Landtechnik’ 6/2006 42 | aChieve more WiTh leSS eFForT 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. starfire 6000 receiver accessing John Deere’s precision farming solutions starts with the new StarFire 6000 Receiver.

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. YOUR FARM IN YOUR POCKET 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. JDLINK MACHINE CONNECTIVITY 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. | 45 MyJobs and MyLogistics Apps: Ultimate coordination for a 100% optimised harvesting chain With this new John Deere system there is NO need for paper, phone and magnetic boards any more.

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. | 47 MACHINE SYNC – 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. 48 | your John Deere Dealer – A TRUE HARVESTING PARTNER. “It’s tough out there during the harvest season because time is money.

To get the full picture the running costs over the whole lifetime have to be considered. And here the S-Series has clear advantages. LOW WEAR PARTS COST LOW MAINTENANCE COSTS 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.
