Features



Designed for performance in coarse grain crops, the Tri-Stream™ rotor and Dyna-Flo™ Plus cleaning shoe efficiently thresh and clean grain in tough harvesting conditions. The TriStream rotor helps maximize fuel efficiency with technology that reduces the force required to move material through the combine by as much as 20 percent. High capacity starts at the feederhouse, where the S-Series provides large areas of clearance for high volumes of crop to flow uninterrupted.

 

  • TriStream rotor delivers performance – A slightly tapered front nose dramatically reduces the growling that often comes with thick crops and heavy rotor loads. Spiral vanes around the rotor guide the crop material through the feeding and threshing area, reducing hesitation and improving productivity. Meanwhile, rifling grooves on the elements allow the bullet-shaped rotors to move large volumes of crop material through the rotor more efficiently. Rifled elements grip crop material, providing a pulling action that helps even the crop flow, allowing the rotor to deliver better threshing performance.

  • DynaFlo Plus delivers clean grain – Consider your capacity needs met. In fact, in shoe-limited conditions, you get 10 percent more capacity in corn than previous models, which equates to another 0.6 ha/hr (1.5 acre/hr). The key is uniform distribution and a unique two-stage pre-cleaning design. Four conveyor augers move material onto the shoe steadily and evenly, even on hillsides. A fixed front chaffer helps thin the crop mat; about 30 percent of the air goes to the front chaffer at high speed, allowing it to clean up to 40 percent of the free grain before it reaches the main chaffer. A huge rear chaffer and larger sieve (12 percent larger than previous models) are specially designed to handle the threshing and separating performance of the S-Series.

Truly tough conditions demand more than simple solutions. Rather than slightly improve performance in rice, canola, wheat, barley, oats or other tough small grains, John Deere S-Series Combines set new capacity standards with four crucial components: Active Concave Isolation, a high-performance feederhouse, heavy-duty separator grates with two rows of interrupter bars, and the variable-stream rotor. When you’re looking at a storm on the radar and you don’t have time to spare, you can run full throttle and still put your toughest crop into the machine without any issues.

 

  • Better material handling – The industry-exclusive variable-stream rotor features a longer, more tapered front cone design that excels in wet, green rice or small grains where the straw is especially tough. The variable-stream rotor with adjustable top cover transport vanes is recommended for rice producers and those facing tough threshing conditions. The vane angle can be adjusted to reduce the stress on straw material as it flows around the rotor, increasing the quality of the straw while using less fuel. Along with the tough material handling capabilities of the variable-stream rotor configuration, the straw quality and length can be improved due to the electrically adjustable top cover transport vanes.

  • Dyna-Flo™ Plus cleaning shoe provides more cleaning capacity – In shoe-limited conditions, you’ll see a 14 percent capacity boost in wheat and canola compared to previous John Deere designs, raising your productivity and improving grain quality. Simply put, this is a cleaning system that does it all.

  • Harvest through the toughest conditions – Active Concave Isolation has been improved by applying hydraulic pressure to better secure the concave, providing extra stability when harvesting really tough crops. This increases the machine capacity by 10 percent, so you can harvest outside the optimal harvest windrow or crop conditions when necessary.

  • Better feeding in tough conditions – The S700 Combine feederhouse design features an exclusive pivoting mid-frame design to provide the highest level of material handling and feeding capacity, especially in high-volume, tough crop conditions. The front feed drum provides you with 5.1 cm (2 in.) of additional movement for greater flexibility in challenging crop.

The more time you can spend harvesting and the less time spent making adjustments means more daily performance. The S-Series Combine offers more convenience from the cab with platform tilt, precision residue, and easy crop changeover when it’s time to move fields. Whatever harvest throws at you, you can keep moving with the touch of a button.

 

  • Platform tilt – A center-mounted hydraulic cylinder lets you adjust the platform tilt of the cutterbar from the convenience of the cab using the advanced multifunction lever. You get the optimum cutting angle and the lowest possible cutting height.

  • Advanced PowerCast™ tailboard and straw chopper – This option for the premium residue system gives you additional residue management flexibility. With the premium system, you can chop straw and chaff and spread both by making adjustments within the cab. Auto Swap automatically adjusts for wind at headland turns. With the knife bank adjustment, you can change knife bank positions on-the-go from the cab to adjust residue sizing based on crop conditions or engine power consumption.

  • Fast delivery, space-saving folds – S780 and S790 Combines boast a 14,100-L (400-bu) capacity to match high-volume crops and wider front-end equipment, while still emptying the tank as fast as 134 L/s (3.8 bu/sec). The folding unloading auger lets you store the combine in the barn using less space and makes the machine more maneuverable in tighter gateways. You can also control your grain tank covers and the loading auger from the CommandARM™ console in the cab with the push of a button.

The faster you can get to – and into – your fields, the more productive you are. John Deere S-Series Combines make it easy. Tracks help you get into the field sooner and finish faster. The ProDrive™ system lets you smoothly shift between two speed ranges (field and transport) with the push of a button; you’ll no longer have to stop to shift when going up or down hills or when you’re exiting a field.

 

  • Get your harvest on track – Your ability to get into your fields sooner is easier than ever. Reach a road transport speed of almost 40 km/h (25 mph) with the John Deere tracks. The suspended track system provides a smoother ride with better ground following. This makes for more comfortable harvesting days and lets you finish faster. Available with 76.2- or 91.4-cm (30- or 36-in.) wide belts, these tracks deliver better ride quality and ground following, improved flotation, and less compaction. In addition, there’s no daily maintenance.

  • ProDrive ground drive system – This lets you switch between two infinitely variable speed ranges with the push of a button. Using the CommandARM™ armrest console, you can set the first range for typical harvesting speeds and the second for transport. This reduces your combine’s engine rpms during transport while still maintaining a productive ground speed, improving fuel economy. An electrohydraulic differential lock with a four-pinion differential delivers greater traction in muddy conditions.

  • Two-speed, four-wheel drive (4WD) is perfect for demanding conditions – This lets you switch between torque ranges. In slow-speed mode, the high-torque rear assist is ideal for tough conditions. Use high-speed mode for low-torque performance and faster ground speeds.

The S-Series Combine premium cab is a great place to spend a long harvesting day. The intuitive CommandARM™ console, along with the 4600 CommandCenter™ Display, delivers easy-to-understand harvest run screens. The multifunction control lever fits your hand perfectly to give you smooth hydrostatic speed control, unloading options, and more. An air-suspension swivel seat adjusts four ways with lumbar adjustments to give you just the right amount of support. For more comfort, add the leather package option, equipped with a leather steering wheel, lumbar-supported operator seat that is heated and ventilated, and a leather instructor seat. Even small cab comforts can make a big difference over long harvest days.

 

  • Designed for efficiency – The Generation 4 CommandCenter display provides full-screen viewing of all your harvest run pages. It’s customizable with programmable shortcut keys that let you easily choose the pages you look at most frequently. You can also lock out functions to prevent less-experienced operators from accidentally making changes. Plus, the Extended Monitor works with the 4600 display to give you more real estate for viewing.

  • Designed for productivity – The air suspension seat swivels 15 degrees to the right and 7 degrees to the left for better views of the grain tank and auger. Add grain tank mirrors for even better visibility of the fill level in the grain tank.

  • Designed for comfort – An integrated refrigerator keeps refreshments cold all day, and foot pegs deliver improved comfort during long harvest days. These are small features that will make a big difference after 10 or more hours of daily harvesting.

 

 

S-Series Combines deliver more precision with integrated technologies to help you make upcoming business decisions with more accuracy. They learn on-the-go to improve your harvest, reduce losses, or leave cleaner grain. You’ll collect more accurate data, the automated technologies will improve harvesting results, and connecting all your machines will help you make more informed decisions. What’s even better, they do much of this automatically in the background without you having to worry about it, so you can focus on the harvest.

 

  • John Deere StarFire™ 6000 Integrated Receiver – This receiver is the new standard in John Deere precision ag technology and is ready to harvest with AutoTrac™ in base. The integrated design further enhances the value that you have come to expect from StarFire products. The StarFire 6000 Integrated Receiver eliminates all setup, installation, and calibrations. There is no need to verify machine and receiver measurements, as this has been done precisely for you at the factory.

  • Combine Advisor™ technology package – Combine Advisor automatically adjusts the combine’s harvest settings to put higher quality grain in the tank and reduce the chance of grain loss. Cameras on the clean grain and tailings elevator help you make informed decisions on the crop that is flowing up and into the grain tank.

  • Machine Sync – During harvest, the combine can unload 100 times or more every day, so caution and safety are even more important. Machine Sync connects the grain cart to the combine, letting the combine operator adjust the speed and location of the cart, automating all tractor movement. The grain cart operator can see where all the combines are in the field, as well as which one is closest to full, prioritizing unloading and improving overall logistics.

Chaffer And Sieve

3 mm Fixed Round Hole Sieve - AXE68434

The Dyna-Flo Plus cleaning shoe is the heart of the S700 Combine cleaning system. The system is made up of a unique design consisting of aluminum and high-strength steel that reduces overall weight while maintaining overall strength. The Dyna-Flo Plus cleaning shoe also features an enhanced drive system that requires only one flywheel for optimal shoe performance and maximizes uptime.

Feature benefit:

  • Increased size of the sieve area by 12 percent for up to an additional 0.6 ha (1.5 acres) per hour of productivity.
  • Tailings volume reduction of up to 28 percent in coarse grains and up to 14 percent in small grains.
  • Weight reduction of 180 kg (396 lb) for smoother operation and reduced combine ground compaction.
Dyna-Flo Plus cleaning shoeDyna-Flo Plus cleaning shoe
Enhanced drive systemEnhanced drive system
Functionality:

The Dyna-Flo Plus cleaning system begins with conveyor augers located beneath the concave area, where the volume of threshed material is highest, to evenly move material onto the cleaning shoe (1). The deep auger troughs provide uniform distribution of material to the cleaning shoe with less bunching, even on sloping terrain and when harvesting up and down hills.

Dyna-Flo Plus cleaning shoeDyna-Flo Plus cleaning shoe

Once grain is on the cleaning shoe, the raised-center front chaffer cleans up to 40 percent of free grain before it reaches the main chaffer (3). High-velocity air from the cleaning fan elevates any light material traveling over the end of the front chaffer, resulting in more aggressive separation of chaff and increased cleaning performance (2). The main chaffer provides grain separation from chaff as the grain passes through the main chaffer to the sieve (4).

The sieve provides proper sizing of grain from material other than grain (5). Any grain that passes through the sieve is elevated to the grain tank while some grain or material other than grain flows to the tailings return system for reprocessing. On S760, and S770 Combines, the tailings material is directed back into the threshing section of the separator for additional threshing. The tailings material on the S780 and S790 Combines are directed to the active tailings return system for additional threshing, and then directed back on the return pan and then onto the main chaffer for additional cleaning (6).

Parts included for side hill packageParts included for side hill package

The side hill performance package can improve combine performance on slopes up to 8 degrees (14 percent) by substantially reducing cleaning shoe grain loss to acceptable levels.

 

Feature benefit:

  • Reduces grain loss out of the rear of the combine on side hill slopes
  • Increases combine productivity by not having to slow down on side hill slopes

 

Functionality:

 

The side hill kit installed in the cleaning shoe of S700 Combines allows grain to be evenly distributed across the entire width of the shoe when harvesting in slopes. As grain moves to the rear of the combine, the dividers keep grain contained into four individual bays which prevents overloading one side of the cleaning shoe. Additionally, the rubber agitator paddles in each individual bay work with the oscillating motion of the cleaning shoe to move grain toward the center of each bay for increased utilization of the entire cleaning shoe width for increased performance and productivity.

Rear of rotor with discharge paddlesRear of rotor with discharge paddles

Rotor discharge flights are available for STS combines when operating in specialty crops. The discharge flights are recommended for use in crops such as sunflowers and edible beans when operating in conditions that require rotor threshing speeds below 300 rpm. 

 

The discharge flights are designed to provide an aggressive push to the slow-moving crop material as it moves from the rotor housing into the discharge beater. The additional kick provided by the paddle design of the flighting significantly improves material flow and reduces possible plugging at the rear of the rotor at extremely low threshing speeds.

 

When operating in other crops where rotor speeds higher than 300 rpm are required (for example, soybeans, wheat, rice, etc.), it is recommended the discharge flights BE REMOVED to ensure adequate and even material flow through the rotor, as well as to provide better residue spread.

 

IMPORTANT:  Discharge flight paddles are NOT recommended for use in heavy, damp wheat or rice crops.

 

The discharge flight is for use on any 9650 STS, 9750 STS, 9660 STS, 9760 STS, 9860 STS, 9670 STS, 9770 STS, and 9870 STS Combines and does not require the combine to be fitted with any particular configuration of rotor discharge housings.

 

NOTE: Two rotor discharge flight paddles for 9560 STS, 9570 STS, and S550 STS Combines, AH219961 and AH219962, can be ordered through Service Parts.

The stone trap protects the combine's interior area by effectively catching stones deflected by the feed accelerator into the stone dump area before they enter the TriStream™ feed section.

  • Remote lever with an over-center latch makes cleanout fast and easy.
  • Trap requires no adjustment and provides worry-free harvesting when cutting close to the ground.
  • Adds no additional length to the feederhouse. Excellent line-of-sight visibility of the platform cutterbar is maintained.
  • No compromise in feeding material smoothly from the platform to the feederhouse conveyor chain.
  • No increase in front axle tire loading since feederhouse length is not extended.

Field-installation information

An expanded stone trap door with a two-piece front feed floor is available as a field-installed bundle. This bundle replaces the standard one-piece feed floor.

 

When harvesting crops such as corn, food corn, popcorn, and small grains, the front-piece floor section remains bolted in place. This allows 9 in. of opening across the width of the machine.

 

In rocky conditions such as beans and edible beans, the front floor section is removed to provide 11.5 in. of open area to the larger stone trap, allowing improved rock protection (22 percent increase in stone trap area).

 

Please refer to the chart below for retro-fit information

Two-speed feed accelerator handle Two-speed feed accelerator handle

The slow-speed drive reduces the standard two-speed feed accelerator from 450 rpm/800 rpm to 320 rpm/770 rpm.

 

These lower speeds allow the feed accelerator to provide more gentle grain handling in delicate specialty crops such as edible beans, food corn, or popcorn. 

 

Having the slow-speed feed accelerator drive available as a factory-installed option allows those who plan on using this drive for harvesting all their crops to save the cost of discarding the standard feed accelerator drive parts in the field.

Smooth-wear strips on feed acceleratorSmooth-wear strips on feed accelerator

The smooth-wear strips provide optimum grain quality in speciality crops such as popcorn and food corn. The bundle includes set of 30 wear strips to replace standard-equipment serrated wear strips.

Harvest Information Technology

ActiveYield delivers automatic yield calibrations to the operator without spending time manually performing yield calibrations.

Feature benefit:

  • Simplified yield calibrations for improved uptime in the field
  • Simplified data collection for use during and after harvest
#

Functionality:

ActiveYield eliminates time-consuming manual yield calibrations and replaces them with automated sensors that calibrate the machine by measuring the grain as the tank fills. This enables decisions to be made in real time without leaving the cab.

ActiveYield sensors in grain tankActiveYield sensors in grain tank

When the ActiveYield option is enabled and the Terrain Compensation Module (TCM) in the StarFire™ 3000 or StarFire 6000 Receiver has been calibrated, ActiveYield is ready to go to work. As grain is harvested and enters the tank, the three sensors within the grain tank collectively measure the grain as it piles over the cross auger covers. If all conditions are acceptable (header and separator on, grain is flowing, and machine level is within 4 degrees) load collection occurs from 900 through 3000 kg (2000 through 6600 lb).

Any pitch and roll of more than 4 degrees from center during load collection will cause the system to reject that load due to the grain pile shifting in the tank. A new calibration load starts once grain is below the sensors on the cross auger covers.

Stored calibration loads are replaced by new ones as the system continues to collect data. The system may be disabled at any time by accessing the moisture setup page and unchecking the ActiveYield box if manual yield calibration is desired.

ActiveYield InformationActiveYield Information

ActiveYield is available for model year 2016 through model year 2019 S760, S770, S780, and S790 Combines and requires the 4600 CommandCenter™ Display, GreenStar™ 3 2630 Display, or GreenStar 3 CommandCenter. Additionally, a StarFire 3000 or 6000 Receiver must be installed on the combine with the TCM calibrated for ActiveYield to detect machine pitch correctly. Manual yield calibration is not required as each crop has a built-in default value.

Harvest Doc™ system yield data collected by an ActiveYield system is only compatible with the John Deere Operations Center. John Deere does not guarantee compatibility of ActiveYield collected documentation with John Deere APEX™ software or third-party software systems.

Machine Optimization Technology

Active Terrain Adjustment is a system that enhances grain quality and reduces grain loss when harvesting on ascending or descending hills. The feature automatically adjusts the combine’s sieve and chaffer openings and carefully controls the cleaning fan speed, stabilizing tailings levels and ensuring a clean grain tank sample.

 

Feature benefit:

  • Achieves same loss level as on level land conditions (on hills up to 10 degrees)

  • Tailings reductions by up to 35 percent on 8-12-degree inclines

  • Automatic settings adjustments on hills

Active Terrain Adjustment slopeActive Terrain Adjustment slope

Functionality:

 

Order Active Terrain Adjustment as a factory-installed option or as an attachment for field installation on model year 2016 machines and newer (PIN 785000 -). The feature can be used in both coarse and small grains in all terrain, but will excel especially on hills.

Active Terrain Adjustment cleaning fan actuatorActive Terrain Adjustment cleaning fan actuator

When the machine starts an uphill climb, Active Terrain Adjustment will slow the cleaning fan down and open the chaffer and sieve elements. As the machine descends a hill, the cleaning fan speed will increase and the chaffer and sieve elements will close to decrease grain loss and prevent shoe loading.

ActiveYield delivers automatic yield calibrations to the operator without spending time manually performing yield calibrations.

Feature benefit:

  • Simplified yield calibrations for improved uptime in the field
  • Simplified data collection for use during and after harvest
#

Functionality:

ActiveYield eliminates time-consuming manual yield calibrations and replaces them with automated sensors that calibrate the machine by measuring the grain as the tank fills. This enables decisions to be made in real time without leaving the cab.

ActiveYield sensors in grain tankActiveYield sensors in grain tank

When the ActiveYield option is enabled and the Terrain Compensation Module (TCM) in the StarFire™ 3000 or StarFire 6000 Receiver has been calibrated, ActiveYield is ready to go to work. As grain is harvested and enters the tank, the three sensors within the grain tank collectively measure the grain as it piles over the cross auger covers. If all conditions are acceptable (header and separator on, grain is flowing, and machine level is within 4 degrees) load collection occurs from 900 through 3000 kg (2000 through 6600 lb).
