John Deere has announced that it is adding two new models of X Series Combines to its 2021 harvesting lineup to meet the needs of large-scale producers. The X9 1000 and X9 1100 Combines are designed to thresh, separate, and clean more bushels per hour, regardless of the conditions. This means less downtime and more productivity for Deere customers.
“As conditions change, an X9 Combine can make automatic adjustments for the operator so it consistently operates at peak levels,” said Matt Badding, harvesting product manager for John Deere. “For example, in the morning, straw can be damp and make threshing and separating tough. By midday, the moisture evaporates and harvesting conditions improve. In the past, these changes required operators to adjust combine settings to help the machine compensate. Now, the adjustments are made automatically.”
All X Series Combines feature a wide feeder house, dual separator, and the industry’s largest cleaning shoe. Together, these components improve crop flow while increasing harvesting capacity.
“At the heart of the new combine is the X Series Dual Separator (XDS) with the largest threshing and separation areas Deere has ever offered,” Badding added. “Crop in the XDS is threshed and separated during nine revolutions, resulting in less grain loss and increased harvesting capacity.”
The highly fuel-efficient X Series Combines can run up to 14 hours without refueling during harvest. Operators can also enjoy the benefits of JDLink™ and John Deere Connected Support™, which come standard on both the X9 1000 and X9 1100 Combines. Additionally, the restyled cabs of the X Series Combines also offer more storage space, more USB ports, and better connectivity.
The X Series Combines are available on wheels or tracks. John Deere will begin taking orders for them later this summer. More details can be found by speaking to your local dealer or visiting JohnDeere.com.
