With two new X-Series combine harvester models added to its 2021 harvesting lineup, John Deere is enabling large-scale farmers to harvest more tonnes per hour and more hectares per day, especially in difficult, high-yielding, rainy conditions. The newest X9 1000 and X9 1100 combines from John Deere are the company’s flagship models and offer the highest level of harvesting capability.
With a grain ss of less than 1%, the X9 1100 can harvest wheat at a rate of 100 tonnes per hour. The foundation of the X9’s perforᴍᴀɴce is the X-Series’ largest feeder house, which leads the industry. To maximize crop flow and harvesting capacity, these features work in concert with a ground-breaking dual rotary separator and the biggest cleaning shoe in the industry. The 3.51m long XDS rotors employ the tried-and-true modular design of the S-Series combines, with specific threshing and separating sections. The separation section uses a finger design to extract the residual grains from the crop mat in addition to the standard threshing components, enhancing perforᴍᴀɴce under less-than-ideal circumstances.
The X9 has undergone extensive testing in northern, high moisture, severe separation environments, demonstrating its ability to achieve over 100 tonnes per hour at a one percent ss level. Thanks to completely new fan technology, the 7m2 Dyna-Flo XL cleaning shoe has a 36 percent larger cleaning area and a 45 percent larger cleaning capacity than the S-Series. This makes it possible to produce the best grain quality currently available, proving that these new combines are clearly superior to any previous combine offering and satisfying the requirements of Europe’s most important and picky customers.
The brand-new John Deere PowerTech 13.6-litre, six-cylinder diesel engine powering the X-Series combines can run for up to 14 hours during harvest without refueling and can produce up to 700 horsepower (515kW). The X9 has HarvestMotion, a strong belt-drive system that, like on the popular 9000 Series self-propelled forage harvesters, results in reduced engine rpm, 20% less fuel consumption, and 30% more torque. With the new Fast Fuel System, which offers filling speeds of up to 550 liters/min, the 1250-liter fuel tank of the X9 can be completely refilled in under 2.5 minutes, allowing customers to spend as much time harvesting as possible.
The X-Series combines were developed with harvesting efficiency as a top priority by John Deere. Due to technological advancements in transmissions, crop handling, cleaning systems, and the new Xcel straw chopper knives, the amount of power needed for harvesting has dropped by 120hp (86kW) while giving improved perforᴍᴀɴce. With important characteristics like 30% more torque than the previous ProDrive for slopes, muddy conditions, and rainy weather; 40 kph; and engine speed regulation to 1700 rpm for maximum efficiency on the road, the new ProDrive XL is a truly seamless gearbox.
ProDrive XL employs the double pump technology system, which is Uɴɪqᴜᴇ to the industry. To ensure the most torque is available, it instantly activates both pumps when it starts. As the forward speed increases and the torque deᴍᴀɴd decreases, the second pump’s output decreases, reducing the need for power and fuel. The X-Series combines come with a transport width of less than 3.5m and can be mounted on wheels or tracks.
