To cater to the evolving demands of its customers, John Deere has made numerous updates to model year 2022 S Series Combines. In part to recognize over seven decades of manufacturing and selling self-propelled combines, a 75th-anniversary decal will be applied to every combine that leaves the factory.
Some of the new factory-installed options available to customers for the S Series include automation activation 4.0 with Generation 4 Machine Sync and AutoPath™, new LED lighting packages, and a remote grease line for the combine’s final drives.
“John Deere S Series Combines are a great harvesting solution for producers who grow corn, small grains, and pulses across North America. These new options can help farmers push the envelope of high-capacity harvesting while improving grain quality,” said Ray Gherardini, marketing manager for John Deere.
AutoPath utilizes guidance lines from previous passes to automatically set hands-free navigation in the field. A new LED lighting package option provides forward-facing lights to brighten dark areas, and an optional factory-installed flat-tooth comb chaffer makes it easier to set in canola in weedy harvesting conditions.
For smaller grain growers, John Deere now offers the Kondex all-crop concave configuration. It is ideal for high-speed harvesting, maximizing material-on-material threshing to keep the rotor full.
HDF drapers are also available in 35- to 50-foot working widths. Finally, wing leveling on Hinged Drapers allows operators to set a “home” position for their draper for the utmost convenience.
