Among its new product offerings, John Deere has unveiled a new 800-hp 7950 self-propelled forage harvester that is the largest, most powerful SPFH the company has ever built.

In addition, Deere unveils its new 770 SPFH corn head and 600C Series pickup heads to further complement the 7050 Series lineup.

The 7950 SPFH is now available to order and replaces the 7850 in John Deere's forage-harvester lineup that includes five additional models that range in size from 375 to 615 hp.

In some cases a single 7950 can replace two smaller forage harvesters. Customers that utilize one machine instead of two can significantly reduce their machinery and operator costs, said Tim Meister, division manager of marketing, John Deere Ottumwa Works.

The 7950 SPFH is available with John Deere HarvestLab and AutoLoc (Automatic Length of Cut) technology to help operators customize machine performance and maximize forage quality.

With its 19L Cummins engine, the 7950 SPFH provides customers with efficient power and reliability to handle their most demanding harvesting jobs, Meister said.
