John Deere’s flagship combines now produced in Zweibrucken


As of this year John Deere’s largest S-Series combines, the 547hp S680 and 626hp S690 and their respective ‘i’ versions for the European and CIS markets, are being produced in Zweibrücken, Germany.
“We already have 50 years of experience in combine production for European and overseas markets and have invested approximately 20 million euros in our assembly facilities, infrastructure and quality assurance,” says factory manager Ralf Gaa.
“It is another milestone for Zweibrücken that we can now label the entire range of John Deere W-, T- and S-Series combines as ‘Made in Germany’. By adding the biggest S-Series manufacturing to Zweibrücken, we can react better than ever to the growing demand for high-capacity rotary combines.”
John Deere’s large horsepower S-Series combines feature a single tine rotor and have been designed to provide maximum performance and excellent grain and straw quality. Equipped with a grain tank capacity of up to 14,100 litres, these machines can harvest 70 to 75 tonnes of wheat or 100 to 120 tons of maize per hour. Their highly flexible residue management system meets a variety of harvest requirements.
Complementing the wide range of existing John Deere cutting platforms for combines, the new, versatile 600X header with extendable cutterbar will be available in limited quantities and countries for the 2014 harvest.
S-Series combines are also available with a number of intelligent solutions, including the new interactive combine adjustment (ICA). Designed to minimise losses and maximise both grain and straw quality, ICA offers the operator a choice of several harvesting strategies and either single or multiple optimisation targets.
To further enhance machine and fleet performance, John Deere S-Series combines can be fitted with JDLink telematics and Machine Sync harvesting logistics systems, both elements of the John Deere FarmSight strategy.
In addition, John Deere’s GoHarvest mobile phone app is now available as a free download for smartphones and tablets. This latest application allows operators in the field to optimise their combine easily and always have the recommended John Deere settings to hand.
