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
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
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
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
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
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.
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
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.
• 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.
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.
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
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
The advantages of W-Series

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
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
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
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
• Easy, fast adjustments let you quickly
match cleaning performance in all crops
and conditions
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

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
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
• With our Premium Chopper system, you
can windrow chaff and straw together,
drop straw while spreading chaff
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

The John Deere Advantage
• No daily grease points reduces service
time dramatically over the harvest
• Enjoy wide, open access to the walkers
and tine separator module, cleaning
shoe, engine compartment and all major
service points
Numerous service lights give you a better view for
easier trouble shooting and service at night or in low
light conditions. Lighting includes 2 stubble lights,
2 side finder lights, work lights in the grain tank and on
the unloading auger, 2 cleaning shoe lights, road lights
and side finder lights serving as exit lights, optional
service lights for both sides of the combine as well as
the engine compartment and 6 high intensity, infra-red
halogen headlamps.
Big side shields lift easily, giving you wide open access
to the main service points. The new side shields are
made from advanced composites. They’re lighter and
stronger than sheet metal shields. They are resistant to
dents and impact and have a smooth, gloss finish.
Toolbox design gives you easy access to plenty of
storage space.

when time is short and there’s crop to harvest.
