2022 John Deere Combine Review

2022 John Deere Combine John Deere celebrates 75 years of combination manufacture and sale with a new update to the 2022 S Series Combine model year.

Major updates include Automation Activation 4.0 with 4th Generation Engine Sync and AutoPath; a new LED light package — the same light combinations offered on the larger X Series; and factory-installed flat-tooth comb chaffers for the S and X Series.

Three new residue management offerings are also available: an extra-fine chopper for the S780 and S790, an advanced PowerCast tailboard with luxury residue management for soybeans, and a tough chop kit.

Deere notes that AutoPath uses guidelines from previous passes, such as planting, to automatically set up hands-free navigation in the field and eliminate guessed lines at harvest, regardless of equipment width.

The LED lighting package offers additional headlights to brighten the area in front and behind the combination and illuminate the grain tank, row finder, engine and service access areas, and loading and unloading augers.

The flat tooth comb chaffer can make the combination easier to fit in the canola and lower tailings in lean harvest conditions.

The extra-fine chopper is designed to cut tough hay into fine pieces or possibly eliminate harrowing passages in the field.

Deere also announced a 2022 model year update to Deere’s front-end equipment offerings. This update includes:

  • New flexible cutterbar on hinged draper (HDF).
  • Removal of eight rows of folded corn heads (C8F).
  • Wing alignment and carry are integrated into the hinged draper.
  • HDF draper is available in 35 to 50 ft working width and has the same wingspan as rigid cutterbar draper, but with the addition of a flexible cutter bar to follow the ground closely. The company notes that the narrow profile of the new C8F 8-row folding corn heads improves transportation logistics.

The wing alignment on the hinged draper allows the user to adjust the “home” position for the draper.

When set, the draper returns to that position while lifting on the headland and increases harvest efficiency. Wing alignment helps the draper to clear any debris or obstacles that may be encountered during harvesting.

Integrated conveyance is a new feature for Deere hinged blinds. This improves harvest logistics and ensures the draper is always close to the combination when transporting between fields.

The integrated haulage allows the header gauge wheel to be switched to a conveying mode so the draper can be easily pulled from one plane to another.

2022 John Deere Combine News

Half a dozen new factory-installed options are available to order on the combined 2022 S Series model year from John Deere. The company also introduced several updates to its front-end equipment this month.

“John Deere S Series Combines are a great cropping solution for producers growing corn, small grains, and beans throughout North America.

This new option can help farmers drive high-capacity harvests while improving grain quality,” said Ray Gherardini, John Deere marketing manager.

AUTOMATIC LINE
AutoPath 4.0 Activation with 4th Generation Machine Sync and AutoPath are now factory-installed options for the S Series. AutoPath uses guidelines from previous passes, such as planting, to automatically set up hands-free navigation in the field.

This helps eliminate guessed rows at harvest, regardless of equipment width.

LED LIGHT PACKAGE
The LED lighting options available on the larger X Series combinations are also available on the S Series now. This package includes additional front-facing lights to brighten the area in front and behind the combination.

They also illuminate grain tanks, line finders, engine and service access areas, and loading and unloading augers.

CHAFFER FLAT-TOothed Comb
The high-performance chaffer is now flat-toothed. Canola growers will appreciate how to make the combination more manageable. It also reduces tailings in lean harvest conditions.

Factory-installed flat tooth comb chaffers are now available for S and X Series combinations.

THREE RESIDUE MANAGEMENT OPTIONS
Three new residue management options are available to order from the manufacturer.

First, the extra-fine chopper is available on the S780 and S790 models for farmers who need to cut hard hay into finer pieces or perhaps remove the pass harrow.

Second, farmers can order an Advance PowerCast tailboard with luxury residue management for soybeans. The premium residue management system includes a robust plant kit.

REMOTE LUBRICANT LINE
Farmers can order optional grease lines for final drive zerks to make services more convenient and help ensure routine maintenance is completed.

KONDEX ALL-CROP CONFIGURATION
Small-grain farmers who need to harvest pulse crops in their rotation can appreciate the concave configuration of all Kondex crops that Deere now offers.

The Kondex concave is ideal for high-speed harvesting as it maximizes material-to-material shear to keep the rotor full while driving in the field.

FRONT-END EQUIPMENT UPDATE
John Deere also made four updates to the front-end equipment offering.

First, the new flexible cutting blades on Hinged Curtains (HDF) are available in 35 to 50 feet working widths. It features the same wingspan of a rigid cutting blade draper (HDR), but with the addition of a flexible blade, the draper to closely follow the ground.

“HDF is the ultimate solution for crop cutting in the field,” said Gherardini.

The new eight-row folding corn heads (C8F) were also recently introduced. This narrow head profile makes it easy to transport logistics.

The wing alignment hinged curtain is the third front-end equipment introduction Deere has made recently. The wing alignment technology on the hinged draper allows the operator to adjust the initial position of the draper.

When adjusted, the draper returns to that position when lifting on a headland for increased efficiency. The header can be set to be lifted in a smile or a flat position. Wing alignment helps the draper clear up debris or obstacles.

Finally, integrated transport is a new feature of the John Deere hinged draper, which improves harvest logistics by ensuring the draper is always close to the mix when transporting machinery between fields.

The integrated transport mode allows the header measuring wheel to be converted to transport mode so that it can be easily pulled from one place to another.

AutoPath uses guidelines from previous passes, such as planting, to automatically set up hands-free navigation in the field and eliminate guessed lines at harvest, regardless of equipment width.

The new LED lighting package offers additional headlights to brighten the areas in front and behind the combination and illuminate the grain tank, row finder, engine and service access areas, and loading and unloading augers.

The factory-installed optional flat tooth comb chaffer can make the combination easier to install in the canola and lower tailings in weed harvesting conditions.

For customers who need to cut hard hay into finer pieces or perhaps remove harrows in the field, a new extra-fine chopper is available for select S Series Combines models.

Customers can now add an optional grease line for the final drive zerks to make it even more convenient to service. This simple system can help ensure routine maintenance is completed and uptime is maximized.

For small grain growers who need to harvest legumes in their crop rotation, John Deere now offers a concave configuration of the robust Kondex all crop.

The Kondex concave is ideal for high-speed harvesting as it maximizes material-to-material shear to keep the rotor full while moving in the field.

  • The new flexible cutting blade on Hinged Curtain (HDF).
  • Eight-row Folding Corn Head Release (C8F).
  • Wing alignment on Hinged Curtains.
  • Transport integrated on Hinged Curtains.

The new C8F 8 row Folding Corn Head narrow profile improves transportation logistics.

The alignment of the wings on the Hinged Curtain allows the user to adjust the “home” position for the curtain. When set, the draper returns to that position while lifting on the headland and increases harvest efficiency.

The header can be set to lift in a smile or a flat/neutral position. Wing alignment helps the draper to clear any debris or obstacles that may be encountered during harvesting.

Integrated transport is a new John Deere Hinged Draper feature that improves harvest logistics for customers and ensures the draper is always close to the mix when transporting between fields.

The integrated haulage allows the crown gauge wheel to be switched to “carry mode” so that it can be easily towed from field to field.
