At the Commodity Classic fair, held in Houston (Texas – USA) from February 28 to March 2, John Deere presented the new S7 combine harvester. Advanced harvest automation, high-tech cab, innovative design and sophisticated integrated features for precision farming are the strengths of the series, which is equipped with the latest generation of JDX engines: the nine-litre JD9X for the S7 700, the 13.6-litre JD14X for the S7 800, S7 850 AND S7 900 models.

Combine harvesters S7 are proposed by John Deere with state-of-the-art automation systems, such as Harvest Settings Automation that optimises operating parameters according to grain loss, the presence of foreign bodies or broken grain. Another novelty for the S7 is the predictive automation of feed rate, which detects the crop through different systems including satellite vegetation maps and feedback that the camera, present on the machine, recorded in real time. In addition, the S7 uses the information received from the camera to detect the height of the crop and/or the bedding crop and to adjust the feed rate accordingly. The cab of the new combine is the same as the flagship X9 model, and is equipped with the CommandCenterTM G5Plus which, in turn, is equipped with precision farming technologies such as AutoTracTM, which improves assisted steering, and Data Sync for integrated management of operational data. In addition, there is a new high-definition display located on the corner pillar of the cab for digital reading of combine performance. The StarFireTM receiver, on the other hand, ensures signal stability with an accuracy of 2.5 cm between passes. Completing the package of technologies available, the JDLinkTM system provides two-way connectivity for automatic data loading (both crop and machine) into the John Deere Operations CenterTM and for real-time remote monitoring.
