John Deere Reveals the Next Dimension in Harvest Productivity and Efficiency

John Deere is recognized for its Harvesting Solution Innovation


John Deere has previewed an expansion to the top end of their model line-up with the all new X9 Combine and matching Draper,  specifically  designed and developed  for tough European harvesting conditions. Compared to the S790, the largest model in the line-up today, the X9 Combine and Draper will deliver a step function al increase in performance and  productivity,  while at the same  time offering a significant  increase in efficiency.  This combination  of performance and  efficiency was awarded  a Silver Medal by the AGRITECHNICA medal committee.   

The X9 combine achieves this performance increase in productivity and harvest efficiency through the widest body available, improved crop flow, an increase in active threshing and separation areas, and a larger cleaning shoe, all while maintaining a transport width below 3.5 meters on both wheels and tracks.

All combined, these features  allow for a very high throughput,  very low losses, improved  grain and  straw quality,  and address the  needs of large farmers looking maximize their productivity and profits. A  new  industrial  design language  will also accompany  the X9 combine and draper,  along with  comfort, convenience,  and lighting improvements  to the cab. Common operator interfaces and controls used across the broader John Deere  portfolio  will allow  for the operator  to effortlessly move  between equipment.

The new Draper brings a new dimension to the header portfolio and enables maximum  throughput  in small grains.  A hinged frame will  offer unmatched ground following capabilities, with the widest wing range available, resulting in better ground following in contours and sloping terrain, delivering clean, even stubble  height and  straw distribution  for better seed establishment  and emergence  for the following  crop. Additionally, a  deep belt with a specially designed grain saving surface will put more grain in the combine and reduce loss  at the  header. The  new Draper will  also be compatible  with S-Series combines. All models of the S-Series combine family will continue to be available, and will keep  providing  leading solutions  in automation, grain  quality, capacity, productivity, and a low cost of operation. The all new X9 Combine and Draper are being revealed to the public for the first  time at  AGRITECHNICA  2019 before their  official introduction  in the summer of 2020.  Limited machines will be available for demonstration in the 2020 harvest season
