GrainTruckPlus helps you manage your grain harvesting fleet from your field to your preferred elevators. Know where your team members and the nearest elevators are located and get
information about wait times at those elevators.
John Deere offers a variety of tire, wheel, and track options to match soil, terrain and front-end equipment requirements. When selecting the tire that best matches the harvesting application consider the tire size, load index and inflation pressure ride characteristics desired. Reference the charts below tire designation definitions.
John Deere S-Series Combines (S550, S660–S690) Cleaning Guide
As part of John Deere’s continuous efforts to improve the value and performance of the S-Series Combines the following enhancements are being added to model year 2017 machines. These changes are being made to ensure the highest levels of grain quality, specifically when harvesting high-moisture corn (above 25 percent moisture). Extensive field testing confirms that much of the kernel damage in these conditions is not the result of the threshing section of the machine, but rather parts in front of the rotor or high tailings volumes.
John Deere Combine Delivering S-Series Combine Distinction
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.
