Deere Adds New Features to S-Series Combine

It may be planting season now, but it never hurts to look ahead to the harvest, and John Deere has added some new features to its S-Series Combine, the workhorse of its grain harvesting equipment.

classic-16-johndeeredemoDeere Senior Marketing Rep Britney Guidarelli provided a guided walk-through of some of the latest updates to the S-Series at the recent Commodity Classic.

“One of the biggest new features with the S-Series combine is the new Dyna-Flow Plus cleaning shoe,” said Guidarelli. “The cleaning sieve is 12 percent longer, and it will be able to reduce your tailings by up to 28 percent in shoe-limited conditions.”

A few additional new features to the S-Series include an on-board air compressor to help with cleaning, and the new Low Side Wall (LSW) tires, which offer some benefits of a track, including better flotation and decreased compaction, without the full expense of tracks, and with better road transport than tracks.

Guidarelli also highlighted John Deere’s new 612FC Folding Corn Head, a twelve row corn head available in 30-inch row spacing and chopping or non-chopping configurations that can provide productivity of up to 30 acres more per day compared to a traditional eight row corn head, and six more acres per day compared to a traditional twelve row, while reducing operating costs by 15 percent.
