Available in widths from 4.30 to 9.15 metres, the 600R platforms feature heavy duty components like an 80 hp reverser that takes power directly from the engine, along with an automatic reel reverse so you don’t have to raise the reel. Stainless steel feed plates help keep crop sliding smoothly into the four-way adjustable auger, while the epicyclical counterbalanced knife drive provides vibration free cutting with less shatter loss. And to help you start quickly every day, all 600R platforms feature single-point attachment of electrical and hydraulic lines, as well as locking the platform in place. Maximise harvest potential with the 600R Series platform A positive, epicyclical gearcase knife drive provides in-line knife motion for vibration-free operation. The counterbalanced drive provides smoother cutting, less shatterloss. Non-clog knife guards fully enclose the knives for cleaner cutting. Higher knife speed and longer knife stroke enhance cutting capacity. Knife sections are self-cleaning and bolted for easy replacement in the field. An 80 hp electro-hydraulically controlled mechanical reverser uses direct engine power to put more torque into the job so you can maintain a brisk harvest pace – even in difficult cutting conditions. With the automatic reel reverser, you won’t even need to raise the reel to reverse the cutting platform. Stainless steel feed plates in front of the auger will never rust. Crop is fed smoothly to the intake auger, year after year, season after season. MODEL WIDTH 616R 618R 620R 622R 625R 630R 4.85 m (16 ft) 5.50 m (18 ft) 6.10 m (20 ft) 6.70 m (22 ft) 7.60 m (25 ft) 9.14 m (30 ft) All 600R Series platforms can easily be switched between any W-C-T-S Series or appropriately equipped 1450/1550 combine. Single-lever latching gives you the ultimate in header hook-up convenience. One lever connects the electro-hydraulic multi-coupler and engages the platform attachment pins. Fast, easy and clean. Adjustable table length. Set the three position cutting table from 545 to 715 mm to maximise performance in all conditions… from short, dry straw to long, wet crop. A 660 mm intake auger provides plenty of feeding capacity. Plus, you can adjust the auger four ways (up/down and fore/aft) to ensure smooth, high capacity material flow. The John Deere Advantage • Automatic cutting height and ground pressure give you the versatility to harvest in a wide range of conditions • HeaderTrak system automatically maintains cutting height, even over uneven ground • A variety of header widths lets you choose the platform that matches your farm 4 The unique John Deere CornStar Rotary Corn Head allows true multi-direction maize harvesting, while the innovative intake system reduces vibration and promotes faster, smoother feeding with less grain loss. CornStar corn heads fold to 3.2 m for transport and are available in 6 and 8 row models. Short and long folding crop dividers. Simply fold the dividers into the platform for transport – no need to remove them before you drive on the road. No need to carry heavy attachments or to look for a storage place. Retractable fingers are positioned the full length of the auger to smooth out feeding and boost capacity. Breakaway grooves and retainers are standard; no chance of a broken finger entering the combine. 5 W-Series: Feederhouse The feederhouse has one of the most difficult jobs of any system on your combine: feeding a crop which can vary in yield from one metre to the next in a consistent layer to the separating system. So how does the John Deere W-Series feederhouse do this? With components like the high torque, high strength slip clutch, which give you the capacity to handle the toughest, greenest crops. With features such as the 80 hp reverser, which transmits power from the engine for consistent, dependable performance. And with designs like the ‘straight-through’ feeding, which means that the primary components – feeding, threshing and separating – are the same width, ensuring that every centimetre of the combine is utilised. The John Deere Advantage • High strength components stand up to the greenest, highest yielding crops • Feederhouse reverser gearbox gets 80 hp straight from the engine for consistent, dependable performance • The long feederhouse gives you a shallow angle of cut, with excellent visibility over the platform and a thin, uniform crop mat 6 High capacity feeding for high yielding fields Straight through feeding – The primary components (feederhouse, threshing area, cleaning system and straw walkers) are the same full width as the threshing cylinder. Plus, the feederhouse is set at a flat angle to the threshing cylinder; there are no abrupt transition areas, so crop flows smoothly. The front plate features 9° of tilt and 4° of side-to-side pitch to match ground conditions. The result? An even stubble height with less bulldozing, even in uneven fields. Excellent visibility. The extra long feederhouse positions the header far out in front, so you can see the platform and stubble height without leaning forward or balancing on the edge of your seat. The shallow angle created at the top and bottom of the feederhouse delivers a thin, uniform crop mat to the threshing area. There are no sharp angles to slow the crop flow. With 80 hp of mechanical power supplied from the engine. Directly from the cab you can remove the worst plugs with pushbutton ease! Less downtime, more productive harvesting. The reversing reel further enhances platform discharge for an improved material flow. 7 Benefits of W-Series Technology No matter what you grow, the W-Series combines from John Deere give you the ability to harvest your crop’s full potential with the efficiency you need and the high quality of grain and straw you demand. Threshing begins as the crop mat passes through a primary and secondary cylinder and concave on its way to the steep, 11-step walkers. Once on the walkers, the John Deere power separator drum combs the straw mat, releasing trapped grain, much like the tines on the John Deere tine separation machines. Once the powerful cleaning system blows away straw and chaff, you have more clean grain in the tank and a higher return in your pocket. Performance without compromise. That’s the power of the new John Deere W-Series combines. W-Series Separation: Performance without compromise Unbelievable comfort. The cab helps ease the load of long days in the field. See pages 18−19 for more details. W-Series Features More grain in the tank. The Power Separator combs the crop mat to release trapped grain other machines might miss. Cleaner grain. A dedicated precleaner, combined with the advanced 11-step walker design and innovative Power Separator, results in vigorous separation and cleaner grain. • Increased horsepower. Climb steep hills, even with a full grain tank, thanks to higher engine horsepower. ACA – Automatic Combine Adjustment makes it easy to match combine performance to crop conditions. ACA includes an outstanding remote shoe adjustment where all 6 elements (precleaner and sieves) are connected directly to a dedicated actuator, ensuring higher levels of accuracy. • High precision moisture sensor. You’ll get faster, more accurate readings with our moisture sensor, located in the grain tank. So accurate,t hat within seconds of starting a new field, you can confirm crop moisture levels and decide whether to continue harvesting or not. • John Deere AutoTrac Assisted Steering. Hands-free, satellite based guidance system means you only steer at the headland or to avoid obstacles. AutoTrac eliminates time wasting passes with a partially full platform. Excellent control. An array of simple in-cab monitors and user friendly controls will have you harvesting like a pro in no time… in any crop or condition. • John Deere HarvestSmart Auto Feedrate Control. HarvestSmart automatically controls feedrate for either maximum throughput capacity or grain loss parameters – you choose. Put HarvestSmart together with AutoTrac and the combine operates almost by itself at peak harvesting capacity hour by hour, day by day. Lower power requirements. The advanced threshing design features an extra large cylinder that gets threshing off to a strong start. A single lever latching mechanism ensures effective connection of both electrics and hydraulics to the feederhouse and locks the platform to the feederhouse. 8 • Automatic Combine Adjustment. The Automatic Combine Adjustment feature allows operators to choose one of 16 factory crop settings; the system then adjusts rotor speed, cleaning fan speed, concave clearance, main chaffer opening and sieve opening. Operators can fine-tune the existing settings or programme up to 5 custom settings. • John Deere HeaderTrak system continuously measures and adjusts the header’s ground clearance, giving you an even stubble height, even over rolling or rough ground. • Optional, exterior cameras and in-cab colour monitor. Rear and auger mounted cameras, along with a full-colour, in-cab monitor, give you a view of residue spread width and unloading operations. Outstanding resale value. John Deere combines are well known for their high resale value… something you’ll appreciate at trade-in time. 9 W-Series Separation Four-stage W-Series separation: Performance with quality How do the W-Series combines achieve their all-crop, all-condition performance and outstanding grain and straw quality? By using proven separation technology, combined with effective innovation. Start with walker separation. Proven in years of use and in a wide variety of crops, walker separation gives you the best balance of performance and grain and straw quality. But John Deere W-Series separation adds a unique Power Separator drum at the rear of the 11-step walkers; this drum combs, thins and accelerates the crop mat, allowing trapped grain to fall through. It is this combination of separating actions that gives you unbeatable performance in the widest possible range of crops and conditions. A single lever lets you raise the secondary concave to aggressively thresh difficult crops or lower the unit to reduce straw break-up in dry or brittle conditions or for long straw crops. STAGE 4 STAGE 3 STAGE 2 STAGE 1 The large inertia drum and long concave separation area can easily be set to perform in a wide range of crops and conditions. A speed differential between the crop and drum speed results in thorough initial separation. A large diameter beater provides excellent material handling and additional separation, as the second concave extends the separation area. The concave can also be adjusted to handle a wide variety of crops and conditions. Long walkers provide excellent separation in difficult crops, gentle handling for higher straw quality and lower power consumption. It’s the best solution for growers with varying crops and conditions. A grid design allows active grain capturing. The John Deere Power Separator employs the same “pull and release” technique found on C-Series combines. As straw is pulled over the walker grids, the tines comb the crop mat, opening channels for trapped grain to fall to the cleaning shoe. The Power Separator tines comb through the straw mat, accelerating the crop and thinning out the straw layer. Ideal for heavy and dense crops. *Not for UK Lever operated de-awning plates are standard with all four concave options. Standard cylinder drive ranges from 475 to 1030 rpm – ideal for small grain crops and high moisture maize. *Not for UK The John Deere Advantage • Excellent all-purpose separation for a broad range of crops and conditions. • Tackle heavy yielding and high moisture crops with confidence • High-flow walker design and unique tine separation delivers maximum grain savings with excellent straw quality 10 The advantages of W-Series Separation technology: • The whole separation length is used to remove grain from the crop • Full crop flow area is used for threshing and separation (maximising performance) • Excellent grain and straw quality • Low specific power requirement, lower fuel consumption • Simple adjustments, easy to finetune for maximum performance • Easy to change from crop to crop Posi-Torq drive senses torque needs, then transmits power without belt slippage. Cylinder speed stays constant. Belt life is significantly extended. Automatic Combine Adjustment (ACA) monitors let you change from one crop to another or fine-tune performance from the comfort of the cab. ACA is standard on all models. A positive dampening stone trap protects the cylinder and concave. Open it easily and empty it completely with a single lever. 11 W-Series: Cleaning Advanced cleaning with easy adjustment Hillmaster: Level land performance on 22% slopes There are two things your combine’s cleaning system needs to do: clean the grain and operate with a minimum of adjustment and attention from the operator. Obtain level land performance on slopes. Hillmaster slope levelling recognises changes in slope and automatically oscillates the entire combine body up to 15% to compensate. In combination with the SlopeMaster system, which maintains level land capacity on slopes up to 7%, Hillmaster is able to harvest on slopes up to 22% with no loss in performance. • Heavy duty axles provide the load carrying capacity of level land models, letting you use the full capacity of the grain tank • Because the cab remains level, you won’t have to fight gravity all day. You can concentrate on harvesting with less stress and fatigue • Equal weight distribution on both front wheels enhances traction and safety The Quadro-Flo Cleaning System accomplishes both of these tasks, thanks to a combination of proven technology and innovative features. First, the dedicated pre-cleaner removes up to 25% of the chaff before the grain ever reaches the cleaning shoe. Once on the shoe, four cleaning fans take care of removing the rest of the debris. You’ll fill the grain tank completely, so you have fewer unloading stops. Plus, since the cab remains level, you won’t have to fight gravity all day. You can concentrate on harvesting, with less stress and fatigue. And when it’s time to change the settings, adjustments are quick and easy. The HeaderTrak system lets you maintain an even stubble height over every centimetre of your platform, even in rolling fields or on contours. No bulldozing or gouging, even when you’re cutting low to the ground in laid crop. Plus, you can work at faster field speeds and put more grain in the combine. Also, operate with confidence at night or in dusty conditions. Dedicated pre-cleaner. Cleaning gets a head start as high velocity air moves through the precleaner to lift chaff and debris aloft, away from the lower part of the grain layer. In fact, 25% of the chaff is blown out by the precleaner. Around 1/3 of the grain is pre-separated, falling directly onto the clean grain auger, reducing the volume of grain and chaff that passes to the chaffer and sieve. The John Deere Advantage • Proven John Deere Quadro-Flo cleaning system delivers high volume cleaning action for extra clean, high quality samples • Easy, fast adjustments let you quickly match cleaning performance in all crops and conditions 12 Hillmaster Levelling Heavy duty conveyor augers handle large volumes of grain with ease, ensuring an even sieve load for efficient cleaning. These augers are especially good when you’re working on slopes or in damp conditions and in a wide range of crops. Four Dual-Flo cleaning fans blast a strong, constant stream of chaff eliminating air in two directions. Using four separate fans helps create a high pressure differential that blasts debris away while allowing grain to fall to the shoe. Chaffer/sieve. By the time grain and residue reach the chaffer and sieve, a large part of the straw and debris has already been removed. The separated grain is easily sorted through the chaffer and sieve. Resume button 1 can be programmed to return to preselected header height for long stubble crops. Ideal for harvesting crops like rape or sunflowers or to raise the platform at the end of the field. Resume button 2 can be used to maintain a preset stubble height, for example, in standing cereals, using the mechanical height sensors. Resume button 3 may be programmed to maintain a preset header ground pressure for perfect contour following in laid crops The HeaderTrak monitor displays information on the header functions at a glance: active resume button, HeaderTrak operating mode, stubble height or ground pressure, reel resume and the lateral tilt angle of the header. Two pairs of mechanical height sensors, (one under each side of the platform) continuously measure the header ground clearance. Their forward location ensures a quick response. The John Deere Advantage • Hillmaster automatic levelling oscillates the entire combine body up to 15% for level-land performance on slopes • In combination with SlopeMaster harvest on slopes up to 22% with no loss in performance, reduced unloading time and reduce grain loss 13 PowerTech Plus Engines The engine is the heart of the combine. That’s why every John Deere W-Series combine is driven by a dependable, fuel efficient, Tier IIIcompliant John Deere PowerTech Plus engine connected to high torque ground drives. In addition to superior reliability, John Deere engines offer you usable power, with a horsepower boost available for unloading and other power hungry applications, plus variable geometry turbo-charging and exhaust gas recirculation for cleaner, more usable power. The perfect balance of power and performance Torque curves matched to engine application. Electronically controlled John Deere engines provide extra horsepower to maintain capacity in tough conditions. Up to 17 additional horsepower is also available for unloading. Optional cameras and full colour, in-cab monitor give you a clear view of unloading operations; rear mounted camera lets you monitor residue spread width. MODEL GRAIN TANK W540 W650 8000 L 9000 L USEABLE HP FUEL TANK CAPACITY 255 290 800 L 800 L John Deere power delivers the torque reserve and power needed as engine speed lugs down below rated speed. Separator speed is maintained at a constant level at varying grain tank loads and during operation in undulated fields. High precision moisture sensor is located in the grain tank for faster, more accurate readings. A hinged, high capacity bubble up auger is linked to the grain tank covers. This reduces overall height of the combine for easier transport and storage. The John Deere Advantage • John Deere PowerTech Plus engines provide an excellent balance of high power output and fuel economy, plus famous John Deere reliability • Variable geometry turbocharging and exhaust gas recirculation give clean, usable power 14 Open grain tank covers from the comfort of the operator’s seat. 15 W-Series: Residue Management Chop, drop or spread with John Deere residue systems No matter what your goal – from finely chopped, evenly spread straw and chaff to perfectly formed windrows – the new John Deere W-Series combines offer a residue management system that can meet your needs. To start, our standard chopper spreads a uniform layer of straw and chaff together, even with wider headers. The twin-disc chaff spreader allows you to adjust the deflectors – from the cab – for heavy winds and slopes. And if you need more options, choose the Premium Chopper, which allows you to windrow chaff and straw together or spread chaff while windrowing straw. A twin-rotor chaff spreader features a separate hydraulic drive for wider, more consistent spread widths. There are no belts to adjust, no maintenance is required. To counter the effect side winds or slopes have on the spread pattern, special deflectors can be adjusted (electrically from the cab) to concentrate the residue to either the right or the left of the machine. Whichever system you choose, you’ll find easy adjustment and dependable, effective performance. Wind compensation: > 50% of straw is directed to one side The Premium chopper offers two windrowing possibilities Now you can spread chaff as well as straw with the same chopper. Chaff is blown into the straw chopper with the straw and evenly distributed. No more clumps in the field … just a smooth, even layer of residue. The Premium Chopper offers two windrowing possibilities. One lever lets you switch from blowing chaff to the sides or into the windrow. Position the straw residue deflector manually with a single lever. Or, choose the optional, electrically controlled system (as on the Premium Chopper). The John Deere Advantage • A variety of residue system options allow you to choose your residue management: chopping, spreading or windrowing • With our Premium Chopper system, you can windrow chaff and straw together, drop straw while spreading chaff 16 Choose the twin disc chaff spreader to spread chaff evenly over the full header width. If wind or slope is affecting the spreader, it is also possible to distribute the chaff to one side or the other via the straw chopper. One lever lets you adjust the chopper tailboard. It doesn’t get any easier than this. Windrow the chaff together with the straw. This will ensue that all of the residue is removed from the field – perfect for making bales for power stations. Spread the chaff to the sides while simultaneously windrowing the straw. Perfect for growers who bale straw. 17 W-Series: Cab and Controls Comfort. Convenience. Control. All from John Deere.

A dedicated training seat provides a comfortable place to sit when training new operators. The seat flips up and converts to a field office with space for a laptop computer. This 5 position switch controls unloading auger swing. Detents let you manually position the auger or fully extend or retract the auger automatically. Automatic Combine Adjustment (ACA) gives you full, automatic adjustment of the concave opening, cleaning fan speed, cylinder speed and sieves. Recommended chaffer and sieve adjustments are indicated. You can use the push buttons on the display (shown) or push corresponding buttons on the CommandArm Console. ACA provides optimum combine capacity from the start, even with inexperienced operators. Quick stop disengages the header and unloading auger and stops the auger swing. HeaderTrak display features a vertical bar readout that provides a visual representation of relative header height. The header height resume setting is shown in the lower left corner. The button right of the display shows the header position when the combine is equipped with the HeaderTrak system. VisionTrak display lets you monitor and control the performance of the cleaning shoe (left vertical bars) and separator (right vertical bars) independently or together. The horizontal bar shows tailings volume. You get a much clearer idea of shoe and separator performance to help maximise grain savings. The comfortable, ergonomic operator’s seat adjusts four ways to fit you like a glove. Lumbar adjustment gives you just the right amount of back support. Controls are logically arranged, easy to comprehend and close at hand. New “soft-touch” switches make it easier to fine tune combine performance. Fingertip switches enable precise adjustment of cylinder, fan speed and concave opening. You can adjust the armrest console up, down, fore and aft. The triple display tachometer lets you monitor three functions simultaneously. In addition to ground speed (which is always shown on the top line), you can select engine rpm, cylinder rpm, concave clearance or cleaning fan speed. Anytime you touch or adjust any monitored combine function, it’s automatically displayed on the bottom line. Infra-red halogen or optional xenon lamps provide twice as much light as normal lamps for unmatched night time visibility. Row-finder lighting helps you easily identify obstacles to the combine’s side BEFORE you turn. They are very handy when you’re lining up for your next pass. 19 W-i-Series combines Boost your throughput by up to 23%*.
