John Deere Combine Delivering S-Series Combine Distinction
New for model year 2017, the 9R Wheel Ag and Scraper Special Tractors will feature a redesigned composite fuel tank. Formed from the same material as the 9RX and 9RT fuel tanks, the new 9R Wheel composite tank's sloped design improves the aesthetics of the 9R and also improves the rear and rear-side visibility from the operator seat.

John Deere continues to demonstrate their dedication to protect and nurture crops through sprayer technology with the introduction of John Deere ExactApply nozzle control. A factory-installed, precision solution to protect and maximize the yield potential of crops.
These factory-installed optional wiring harnesses provide for easy installation of up to three remote observation cameras on the combine. Location on the unloading auger provides the operator views of the grain cart or truck while unloading. The camera mounted on the rear styling panel allow for a view behind the machine when reversing. And a mounting location inside the grain tank shows the operator the fill level and grain sample continuously while harvesting. Camera images are displayed on the GS2630 display on the CommandARM(TM) controls in the cab. The additional visibility provided will give operators the confidence to maximize harvesting performance when unloading and maneuvering the combine in and out of the field.
To increase operator comfort during long harvest days, foot rests are now included with the premium cab option on all S-Series Combines. This feature will enable operators to maximize their uptime during harvest and improve their overall performance.
John Deere Connected Support with 5-year JDLink(TM) Machine Connectivity
Beginning with model year 2017, a 5-year JDLink(TM) subscription is included in base equipment on S-Series Combines. This allows a differentiated value for operators with John Deere Connected Support. This requires the modular telematics gateway (MTG) 4G LTE hardware which is included as base equipment. These enhancements in machine communication and connectivity enable better, faster transfer of data into information needed for better agronomic management decisions. This lowers total cost of operations and improves overall profitability.
