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. 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 through kg through 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. Additionally, a StarFire or 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. Combine Advisor is a suite of technologies designed to maximize harvesting profits.
The features help the operator set and optimize the S Combine and then automates the combine to maintain performance target as conditions change. Combine Advisor also provides easy navigation of the S set and optimize features: harvest settings application for initial set up and setting storage, VisionTrak system for monitoring losses, and Optimize Performance for step-by-step guidance of combine setting optimization.
Once John Deere Combine Advisor is set into motion, the operator will experience ease-of-use benefits coupled with increased productivity. Includes ActiveVision cameras. Engine speed management only available with Final Tier 4 FT4 engines.
Combine Advisor bundles are available for model year and future models. The bundles include ActiveVision cameras, harnesses, Auto Maintain, and software.

Dealer installation instructions are included, as weldments and drilling are required. The process will most likely take around 10 hours of labor. The Combine Advisor application provides the tools needed to set the combine to get the most out of it and automatically adjust settings to maintain optimum performance. Additionally, the operator can access Optimize Performance, activate the three automation technologies, and set the performance targets the machine will automatically adjust to maintain.
Feature benefits:. Auto Maintain with ActiveVision cameras is technology that works to automatically adjust five primary S Combine settings to maintain the user set performance target. When harvesting corn, soybeans, wheat, canola, or barley, the combine will maintain the performance of everything from grain loss and grain quality, to foreign material in the grain tank. The ActiveVision cameras, along with grain loss monitors, are specifically designed to identify the impact of crop condition changes and adjust the combine to maintain the performance target, allowing the operator to focus on other challenges of harvest.

Find a Dealer.Key features of the model range available in the UK and Ireland include an integrated 66cm 26in wide rubber track design for S-Series models only, suitable for road speeds up to 30kph, with full hydraulic suspension and an overall transport width of 3. These high-pressure common rail HPCR engines are equipped with two in-series turbochargers for higher boost pressures, a four-valve cylinder head for enhanced airflow, electronic engine control and an exhaust gas recirculation EGR system.
There is a choice of two transmissions on S-Series models. The proven ProDrive transmission, standard on the S and S, features smooth, automatic shifting between two speed ranges, and has an electrically activated diff lock. It offers speed selection for normal harvesting conditions or for faster field work and road transport, and allows individual speed adjustment via the hydrostatic control lever.
The newly designed three-speed Push Button Shift Transmission PBST is standard on the smaller S model, and allows the operator to select the required gear by simply pressing one of three buttons on the armrest console. As with ProDrive, this transmission applies the parking brake automatically once the hydro lever is pulled into the neutral position.
PBST is also standard on the T-Series combines, with ProDrive available as an option on the top three models in this range, which also features improved serviceability, with easier access to the sides of the combine and the main drives.
All four W-Series combines are equipped with a basic three-speed transmission as standard, with PBST optionally available. The four-way adjustable air suspension seat is more comfortable and includes lumbar adjustment for greater back support, while the larger passenger seat can be easily converted into a field office with space for a laptop computer, if required. The optional GreenStar touch-screen display supports the full John Deere i-solutions package, including HarvestSmart automatic feedrate control, Harvest Monitor yield monitoring and AutoTrac automatic steering.
An optional video camera can be installed to monitor the rear of the combine, the grain tank and the unloading auger for all-round visibility and control from the single GreenStar 3 display. Additional cab features include an efficient air conditioning system, sunshades, a refrigerator and a premium radio package.
A new button on the master control lever enables activation of AutoTrac for increased field efficiency, while the corner post display includes a new power meter. The new Variable Stream Rotor on S-Series combines provides higher separator capacity with a smoother, more uniform crop flow, better straw quality and lower fuel consumption.
It combines the proven single-tine separation system with a new, stronger rotor and new top covers with adjustable vanes, all specifically designed for maximum performance especially in high-moisture, high-yielding crops and green harvest conditions. The active returns system is also very easy to adjust, and by handling returns that would normally go back to the separator, and thus lower separator performance, it increases the total output of the combine.
This system uses less aggressive concave settings than those in the separator, and handles sensitive crops more gently, to maintain high grain quality. An optional PowerCast spreader is available to match the widest With the Premium version, the operator can either drop straw and spread chaff, or chop straw and spread all the material during harvesting, simply by switching from chop to drop on the CommandCenter display.
This straw chopper has grooved knives in four rows, working against 57 stationary knives to achieve the finest possible cut. Straw and chaff can also be separated at the rear of the combine by dropping the straw in a windrow, while chaff is routed through the chopper and distributed over the full header width by the adjustable electronic vane tailboard.
The optional John Deere HillMaster self-levelling system is available on all models, and compensates for slopes of up to 15 per cent by levelling the entire combine body automatically on the move. Combined with the SlopeMaster sidehill kit, this provides full harvesting performance on slopes of up to 22 per cent. With HillMaster, John Deere offers the largest full body self-levelling straw walker combine in the industry. This system offers three specification levels, allowing it to be tailored to individual business needs.
JDLink provides data on machine location, fuel consumption and harvest performance, as well as machine hour and location tracking, geofencing to protect a machine from misuse, and maintenance planning. This enables fleet owners and managers to determine, for example, if operators need more training. It featured a larger cab with much-improved visibility over the 70 Series.The S is one of the most automated combines on the market today.
For model yearJohn Deere introduced several new additions to improve harvesting performance and grain quality. Wider header sizes demand new requirements.
The HDX Series with its mm The grain-saver belt saves free grain, reducing header losses. With the increased reel range of up to mm 22 in. The fingered top crop conveying auger in combination with quick attachable rape side knives make the HDX Series the best performing small grain header in the market.
The updated auger elbow and turret deliver about 23 cm 9 in. With model yearall grain tanks for S-Series Combines feature large toolless grain tank hatches to decrease the time and effort required for tank cleanout between crops. With model yearthere will be a revised sidehill performance package available that comes factory installed for the best performance in sidehill conditions. Return pan:. For model yearthe return pan design will look similar to regular machines and machines that will be equipped with the factory-installed sidehill package.
The updated design of the return pan will have five large dividers for the best performance in leveled and hilly conditions. Front chaffer dividers:. On the model year factory-installed sidehill kit, there will not be any front chaffer dividers installed. For most conditions, front chaffer dividers will not be required and may decrease performance.

In case of conditions that require front chaffer dividers, they can be ordered through Parts. Chaffer dividers and flaps:. The sidehill package features long dividers and inner rubber flaps factory installed.
Only the outer six rubber flaps are installed at the dealership. All the controls are integrated in one place. Everything is logically grouped in one place. The Generation 4 display has been completely redesigned with the same, easy-to-use navigational features as a smartphone. Swipe to move from screen to screen, select apps you want to run, and customise screen layouts to suit the way you want to work.
Now you can control all the main functions from your hand. And, best of all, you can switch between screens on the display by turning a wheel on the hydro handle — no need to take the hand off in critical situations when you have to have manual control e. When they were designing the CommandPRO control handle control, our engineers looked at every hand-held controller from game players to aircraft. They wanted more programmable features to customize their harvesting.
The result is over 30 percent more functions than any other combine controller. As soon as your hand grips the CommandPRO control handle, you know this is very different from any other machine you have operated. It fits like a glove. The different buttons are in the perfect position. Even the scrolling wheel at the back is comfortable to the touch. It all feels so completely natural.
You can imagine closing your eyes and being able to operate it perfectly.Whatever the conditions or the operator, the S Series Combines automatically give you consistent grain quality.
Shortcut buttons let you customize and quickly toggle between run pages. Plus, the optional Extended Monitor works with your Display to give you more real estate for viewing. This optional package includes 7 automation technologies to maintain the performance settings you choose - no matter the moisture or crop conditions. The ActiveVision cameras use cameras on the clean grain elevator and tailings elevator to help you see what's going on. Manual calibrations can take up to 90 minutes, but with ActiveYield, it's done with no time or effort.
Automatic calibrations occur as you're running, sensing the weight of the grain in the tank as it fills and continually calibrating the yield system, giving you more accurate field mapping. Getting the best yield data is only useful if you can easily access and share it. With the John Deere Operations Center, you can turn your data into information that will make next year's harvest even better.
Plus, with more than 75 connected software tools, including the major farm management systems used by agronomists, you can make the most out of your data. Connect and no cost, which opens an automatic, wireless information pipeline between you and your equipment. Agronomic data and as-applied data can be accessed from anywhere and shared if needed.
And sending your data from the field immediately and automatically can prevent you from losing data. S Combines come with built-in technology to sense potential issues and alert you - or your dealer - when there's a concern. You can monitor machine fuel levels, location history, receive alerts and view the in-cab display remotely.
On an S Series Combine, the technology isn't just on-board, it's fully integrated. More acres, higher yields and hybrids with tougher stalks are real challenges at harvest. That's why our corn heads are robust enough to cut the toughest, thickest crop with ease to help ensure every kernel makes it inside the combine.
Now with a complete draper line that includes sizes from 25 feet to 50 feet, John Deere offers the biggest selection of draper heads for the widest range of crops and conditions.
Our auger platforms were engineered to match the high capacity of the S Combines and are equipped with a range of performance boosting features.
No matter how rough the field or how thick the windrows, the BP15 Belt Pickup gives you smooth, complete gathering of windrowed grain, thanks to a variety of exclusive features and innovations.
Power, grain quality, and efficiency are not mutually exclusive. The S combines deliver on all, and then some. Thanks to the Active Tailings System, a feature dedicated to the two largest models, capacity and efficiency are at their optimum.
This system increases separator capacity by providing the opportunity for additional threshing of the return grain, if necessary.
The tailings are evenly distributed to the cleaning shoe while you keep harvesting. The more your grain tank can hold, the less time you spend unloading. That's why the S and S models feature a robust bushel grain tank designed to hold more, so you can knock out the acres, fast.
Roomy, comfy, and with all the amenities you need. Deluxe S cab turns ordinary operator station to luxury mobile home. Best-in-class views and lighting. Convenient controls.Many other updates have been made along the way and I will highlight those changes throughout this blog post. It featured a larger cab with much-improved visibility over the 70 Series. It had finally a touchscreen command center display. There were a lot of 70 series command centers with fingerprints on them because operators were used to the touch screen in their tractors and tried in vain to run the 70 Series combine command center the same way.
John Deere S690 specification
The new refrigerator was a big hit because it reduced the need for a cooler to get you through the long days. The factory cab-cam harness made it easier to install cameras on the machine to reduce stress when on the road or when backing up. The S-Series also introduced a larger and more efficient cleaning shoe to help keep more crop in the machine.
With this added productivity, the S and S received a larger standard grain tank and an increased unloading auger capacity of 3. The S and S were also given an active tailings system to help better deal with the added capacity of the machine and reduce losses by not recirculating crop back through the rotor.
One of my favorite changes was the ease of changing the chopper speed. Gone were the days of swapping belts to switch from corn to beans. Another change vs. All of this was moved to the armrest as a park brake button and a gear selection. Also gone was the big silver colored boat anchor in the grain tank better known as the moisture sensor.
Replacing it was the new auger style mounted on the side of the clean grain elevator. This new design was much more reliable than its predecessor. Another new option was the power folding grain tank extension. This allowed customers to fold it up or down from the cab to avoid low hanging power lines or shorter shed doors. John Deere entered the class 9 market in with the model S with hp at rated speed for handling larger heads, larger acres, and heavier crop conditions.
No changes were made to the model numbers forbut there were some changes to the fleet nonetheless. The rotor received a thicker skin to help protect it from damage from ingestion of foreign material. A mid-year option addition permitted the chaffer to have a manually adjusted rear section. This allowed for the independent adjustment of the rear of the chaffer to a tighter setting to help reduce the amount of tailings volume.
This year saw some major changes to the S series.ACI increases throughput in tough threshing small grains and rice without sacrificing overall grain savings. This system allows producers to continue to harvest outside the optimal harvest window and conditions.
The concaves are suspended by hydraulic cylinders that increase the amount of crop that is being threshed as well as reduces the amount of rotor noise that is heard by the operator. The ACI feature hydraulically suspends the concaves; the consistency of the concave gap is increased along with decreasing sensor drift for a more accurate concave distance. Material flow through the threshing section of the machine is smoother giving more consistent threshing.
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.
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.
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.John Deere and CaseIH Combine Comparison
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 S, and S Combines, the tailings material is directed back into the threshing section of the separator for additional threshing.
Valuable harvest time will no longer be lost shifting on hills and when exiting fields to start transporting. The ProDrive hydrostatic motor has a higher displacement than the previous hydrostatic systems. Both the pump and motor are variable-displacement components that allow ProDrive to maintain high levels of torque to the ground throughout each of the two operating-speed ranges.
Range one can be set for typical harvesting speeds. Range two can be used when higher speeds are needed during harvest or when transporting the combine.
