Features

ActiveYield™ system: Automatic yield calibration for corn, soybeans, wheat, canola, and barley

ActiveYield ensures accuracy of the combine’s yield with no time spent manually calibrating by the operator.

Feature benefit:

  • Increased uptime with zero operator time spent calibrating the yield monitor system
  • Improved real-time decision-making as ActiveYield enhances the accuracy of the combine's yield data
#

Functionality:

ActiveYield eliminates time-consuming manual 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, providing more accurate yield mapping data.

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, machine level 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 (GS3) 2630 Display, or GS3 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.

Auto Maintain

Auto Maintain with ActiveVision cameras is technology that works by automatically adjusting S700 Combine settings to maintain the ideal targeted performance. 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 target performance, allowing the operator to focus on other challenges of harvest.

 

Feature benefits:

  • Simply harvest by automating the critical workload of constantly managing combine settings when conditions change
  • Increase productivity by allowing ActiveVision cameras to identify and address tough-to-spot problems such as cracked grain
  • Provides flexibility in planning overall business and increases the productivity of the combine independent of operator experience
ICA2 run pageICA2 run page

Functionality

Auto Maintain looks at the level at which the combine is performing, sets that as the goal, and automates combine settings to continually hit the target performance goal over and over again. Auto Maintain uses existing sensor inputs along with the ActiveVision cameras to make decisions for accurate combine adjustments. It does not use grain moisture as an input, however. Auto Maintain is able to hit the target goal by automatically making adjustments to the threshing speed, concave clearance, chaffer clearance, sieve clearance, and fan speed. The ActiveVision cameras have been trained by university experts to analyze the clean grain and tailings material and input that analysis into the Auto Maintain system. Auto Maintain will show the operator how it has been performing with a constantly updating historical graph of losses, grain quality, and foreign material in the clean grain. The green-shaded area below indicates the performance targets set. The colored lines show the ongoing levels of losses and quality. For example, the green, purple, and orange lines below show a period of time outside of the green-shaded acceptable area. Auto Maintain with ActiveVision cameras recognizes this and the Combine Advisor package makes the appropriate adjustments to meet the set targets.

Historical Auto Maintain performance graphHistorical Auto Maintain performance graph

The ActiveVision cameras can detect broken and unthreshed grain. The cameras will also detect lightweight and heavy foreign material to make the appropriate combine changes. If the operator wants to see the grain as well, the system will highlight the broken and unthreshed grain to make it easier to analyze. The live view and historical graphs update constantly and the cameras can even tell the operator if there is debris on the lens.

Active Concave Isolation (ACI) increases threshing capacity

NOTE: Active Concave Isolation is only available on S780 and S790 Combines.

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.

Feature benefits:
  • In tough threshing, small grains producers can see up to a 10 percent increase in machine capacity while maintaining their loss level when the combine is equipped with a tough crop packages
  • In tough material handling conditions, the tough crop packages improve the throughput of the combine up to 20 percent to better utilize true machine performance outside the optimal harvest window and conditions, while accepting increased loss levels
  • Improved drivability and ability to handle slugs
  • Enhanced durability and uptime with the elimination of sheer bolts in the system
  • Increased operator comfort with the reduction of concave banging noise
ACIACI
Functionality:

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.

High-performance Dyna-Flo™ Plus cleaning system

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).

Automatic shifting with ProDrive™ transmission
Harvesting in slopesHarvesting in slopes
Harvesting in rolling groundHarvesting in rolling ground

The industry-exclusive ProDrive system uses PowerShift™ transmission technology to automatically shift between two speed ranges as ground conditions and terrain change to keep the combine harvesting at the desired ground speed.  Valuable harvest time will no longer be lost shifting on hills and when exiting fields to start transporting.

Feature benefit:

  • Precise control of the combine speed (when going up or down hills) without the need to continuously monitor and adjust the multifunction control lever
  • Retain high levels of productivity through the speed ranges with shift-on-the-go technology
  • Maintain ground speed when engaging four-wheel drive (4WD) (if equipped)
  • Operator-selected maximum speed within each range, allowing for more precise control of the combine in delicate operations (for example, when hooking up headers)

The ProDrive system on S700 Combines includes an integrated HarvestSmart™ feedrate control system to provide the maximum productivity and reduce operator stress and fatigue.

Functionality:

 

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.

 

The ground speed can be infinitely varied within both modes by the operator, using the multifunction control lever on the CommandARM™ armrest console. The multifunction lever regulates the high-capacity, variable hydrostatic pump and motor that drives the ground speed.

 

Using the navigation tools on the armrest, the operator can dial in the desired maximum-attainable speed within each of the two speed ranges. The maximum forward speed in either range can be set from 0 to 38.6 km/h (0 to 24 mph). The maximum speed in range one cannot be set higher than the maximum speed for range two. For example, if a maximum harvest speed of 13 km/h (8 mph) is desired and set, the full forward position of the hydrostatic control handle will deliver the speed of 13 km/h (8 mph).

 

The ProDrive transmission is equipped with an electrohydraulic differential lock with a four-pinion differential.  Non-ProDrive combines have a two-pinion differential. When operating in muddy, hilly terrain or in sandy conditions that may cause one of the tires to lose traction, this differential lock enables the operator to maintain productivity. If traction is lost, the operator can quickly and easily engage the differential lock by pressing the differential lock button on the CommandARM armrest console. An indicator light within the button alerts the operator that the differential locking feature is engaged.

Platform tilt increases header productivity from the combine

Platform tilt allows operators to hydraulically adjust the fore-aft pitch of front-end equipment at the touch of a button from inside the cab to adapt to changing crop and field conditions.

Feature benefit:
  • Maximizes performance of header in down crop or changing field conditions to extend the harvest day by up to one hour
  • Achieves customized fore-aft angle of header with 17 degrees of tilt
  • Adjusts from inside the cab, on the go
Hydraulic fore-aft feederhouseHydraulic fore-aft feederhouse
Hydraulic fore-aft multifunction control leverHydraulic fore-aft multifunction control lever

The platform tilt feature includes a different multifunction lever (hydro handle) to adjust the feederhouse tilt frame from the cab.

Functionality:

All S700 Combines provide an optional hydraulic header fore-aft tilt capability from the cab. However, all S700 Combines include a front-tilting faceplate as standard equipment. This tilting faceplate allows static fore-aft adjustment of up to 17 degrees of tilt on the feederhouse to accommodate different header and tire combinations to ensure a parallel cutterbar-to-ground relationship. This prevents the cutterbar knife guards from bulldozing or the platform healing on the rear of the skid shoes.

 

NOTE: Hydraulic fore-aft adjustment range is limited based upon the front-end equipment attached to prevent header frame damage. Check availability in local Price Pages.

TriStream™ rotor designed for coarse grains and easy-threshing small grains

The TriStream rotor is unique to John Deere because it features a slightly tapered design in the threshing area for best-in-class grain quality while dramatically reducing the growling that often comes with heavy rotor loads. The TriStream rotor is recommended for producers who harvest mainly coarse grains along with easy-threshing small grains.

The spiral vanes surrounding the rotor guide the crop material through the threshing and separating area in a pull-and-release action to improve performance. This John Deere S700 Combine feature will generate less power consumption.

 

Feature benefits:

  • TriStream rotor technology reduces the force required to move material through the combine by as much as 20 percent, maximizing fuel efficiency.
  • The rifling grooves on the threshing elements allow the bullet-shaped rotor to move material more efficiently, maximizing crop threshing performance and grain quality.
  • Heavy-duty vanes on the top covers propel the crop smoothly rearward through the length of the rotor, ensuring all the threshed grain is separated.
S700 TriStream rotorS700 TriStream rotor

Functionality:

 

Fifteen cast-constructed threshing elements provide superior material handling with excellent grain quality.  The elements spiral around the rotor to control material flow.  In some harvesting environments, the dense-pack configuration (nine additional threshing elements) may be necessary. 

TriStream threshing elementsTriStream threshing elements

Conical top covers allow for smooth material movement within the threshing and separating area. The top covers have a radius larger than the rotor, allowing the material to expand as it travels along the top of the rotor. This design uses the pull-and-release action of crop material, aiding in the threshing and separating to reduce power consumption.

Conical top coversConical top covers
Variable-stream rotor designed for tough material handling

The industry-exclusive variable-stream rotor features a tapered design in the threshing section, which improves crop flow, enhances grain quality, and reduces power consumption. The variable-stream rotor with adjustable top cover transport vanes is recommended for producers of rice and in tough threshing conditions.

 

The variable-stream rotor smooths crop flow during tough handling conditions to maximize throughput. 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.

 

Feature benefits:

  • The longer rotor taper in the threshing area allows improved material handling by providing smoother crop flow through the combine, maximizing threshing performance and fuel efficiency.
  • Electrically adjustable transport vanes allow operators to change the vane angle from the cab for improved straw quality.
S700 variable-stream rotorS700 variable-stream rotor

Functionality:

 

Fifteen cast-constructed threshing elements provide superior handling, improved durability and serviceability, and maintain excellent grain quality. The elements spiral around the rotor to move and control the material. In some harvesting conditions, 12 additional bolt-on threshing tines may be installed for increased material handling.

 

Rear discharge flights and a tapered rear cone improve material handoff to the rear discharge beater.

 

Electrically adjustable transport vanes allow operators to change the vane angle within the cab. Longer straw length can be accomplished when vanes are in the advanced position.
