2019 John Deere Combine For the model year 2019, customers have the option of a new suspension system installed in the factory in 30-or 36-inch belt widths. The redesigned John Deere track system for these combinations includes changes to the track harness, integrated power drive, spring cylinder, and tandem bogie wheels that work together to ensure the floatation, ride quality, transport speed, and improving longevity.
The new track system allows farmers to get to the fields earlier and harvest longer, especially with less than ideal harvesting conditions. There are also fewer impacts on soils; A larger contact area compared to previous tracks improves flotation and reduces compaction. The new track system features a unique tread design with wider and larger running rods that are angled to improve traction, balance and ride comfort while maintaining the tread
There is no daily maintenance with this system for ease of use. It has a closed oil bath lubrication system. The towing height increases by 15% from the previous AG-belt construction and ensures an extended belt life time. The lateral oscillation of the central rollers contributes to an even wear track. These tracks have a built-in drive that is specifically designed for this system and supports the associated load. Finally, the combinations with the new track system can reach transport speeds of up to 24.9 mph, which is an increase of over 50% to help you get to your next field faster.
John Deere focuses on performance, ride quality and the efficiency of small grain harvesting and has released new updates for its S-series combinations. These enhancements include a new suspension track system, Flex Draper header, and crop-specific enhancements to the Myoperations mobile app.
Modifications to the new track system will allow combinations to drive nearly 25 mph with wider and larger running rods to increase traction, balance and ride comfort while maintaining the running quality. The newly designed track system is available in 30 “or 36” widths.
“Combinations with these tracks will be able to get into fields earlier and harvest longer, especially under less than ideal conditions, with less impact on the ground, ” says Matt Badding, product marketing manager at John Deere Harvest Solutions. “The new tracks have a larger contact area compared to our previous tracks, which brings significant benefits to customers in these key areas. “

In addition, the S-series combined can now be paired with a new 700fd Hydraflex Draper. The larger models, 35 ‘, 40 ‘ and 45 ‘, integrate a fourth sensor into the automatic header height control. The 700FD Hydraflex Draper is built with a dual-V guide strap and corrugated edge for an improved crop flow, and the company uses up to four times longer belt life.
While these new modifications are able to directly improve performance in this area, John Deere is also working to make improvements for leading operators.
More farmers are making the switch to using mobile apps to increase their efficiency. John Deere has set itself the goal of serving these farmers and now offers remote viewing and adapts as part of the mobile app Myoperations. These amplifiers will allow farmers to more easily monitor kombsions operations and adjust settings such as concave clearance, rotor, fan speed, buddies and screen release from remote locations.
