2019 John Deere Combine
2019 John Deere Combine The John Deere S series 2019 combines three critical updates to previous models. The company announced that its newest combine will be equipped with a new track suspension system, a Flex Draper head and crop-specific Myoperations application improvements. These three features are likely to improve farmers ‘ harvesting experience, says Deere.
Suspension webs in 30-or 36-inch belt widths are now available as factory-installed options on the 2019 S-series combines. If a customer chooses to order the combine on wheels, traders can help them to switch to the rails at a later date. All model year 2019 S780 and S790 combine will come with a rail ready axle. The special axis will be an option for 2019 S770 combine, but is not available for 2019 S760s.
The updated system includes belt changes, integrated drivetrain, suspension cylinder and tandem wheels for trolleys and is designed to improve flotation, driving quality, transport speed and durability. Matt Badding, Product Marketing Manager at John Deere Harvest Solutions, says: “The combination with these paths will allow early entry into the fields and longer harvests, especially in less ideal conditions, with less impact on the soil. “
Badding credits the larger contact area of the new tracks with the advantages. Wider and larger profile strips are specially angled to improve traction, balance and ride comfort without sacrificing the lifespan of the tread. The new track system allows combine to travel faster than previous track systems with nearly 25 mph. Higher driving speed means less transport time and more time work in the field.
The latest addition to John Deere’s Flex Draper series is also available on the new 2019 S Series. The 700FD HydraFlex drainage is designed symmetrically with a double V-shaped guide strip. It also has a thicker, wavy front edge for improved crop flow. Deere says this gives the belt a four-fold longer lifespan. The 700FD HydraFlex Draper also has a dual-position 16-and 18-inch center feed drum for more crop versatility. This property can be particularly attractive for farmers who grow rape and other bushy cereals. The 18-inch top crop auger is designed to provide smooth feeding with fewer snails under harsh conditions.
“To improve ground detection on uneven terrain and automatically adjust the head position accordingly, we have added a fourth sensor for automatic head height control on our 35, 40 and 45-foot models,” says Badding. “The new 700FD HydraFlex Draper was built to deliver better crop handling versatility, more wear life, and to feed and capture more grain. “
The Draper can be ordered separately from the combine, but is on the same production schedule. Orders for the new curtains cannot be placed until late summer 2018. The latest Rotary S700 series from John Deere is built on the combination of automated combine systems and allows for additional crop settings and a combination operation to enhance the power of the combine with brains and not brawn.

For all intentions and purposes the S700 is pretty much the same as the previous generation S600, just loaded with more technology. On the top of the previous automated features, this now includes the ability of the combine to draw on more sensor inputs, which can make it better-informed adjustments to the combine. In addition, the yield accuracy has been increased thanks to the use of in-tank load cells.
Operation-wise, users will now be greeted by a brand new control interface with revised joystick and armrest controls along with a new look touchscreen derived from its tractors. Up-front, revisions were also made to the company’s range of Draper headers for improved handling of a wider variety of cultures.
The number of S700 combine models remains unchanged (see Overview of the S700 series). S700 combined and all subsequent updates will be available for the 2018 season.
