John Deere has expanded its X Series Combine line with the addition of two new models to enhance the harvesting performance.

The new models, including new X9 1000 and X9 1100 Combines, will allow large-scale farmers thresh, separate, and clean more bushels per hour or harvest more acres per day.

John Deere’ new X9 1100 Combine holds the capacity to harvest up to 30 acres of tough and high-yielding wheat per hour. It also harvests up to 7,200 bushels per hour in high-yielding corn.

John Deere harvesting product manager Matt Badding said: “As conditions change, an X9 Combine can make automatic adjustments for the operator so it consistently operates at peak levels.”

The X Series Combines include a wide feeder house, dual separator, and cleaning shoe, which work together to enhance crop flow and increase harvesting capacity.

The 75ft² Dyna-Flo XL Cleaning Shoe includes 36% more cleaning area than the S790, said the company.

The X Series Combines can work up to 14 hours without refuelling during harvest

John Deere’s fuel-efficient X Series Combines can work up to 14 hours without refuelling during harvest. The new John Deere PowerTech 13.6L engine coordinates with an advanced belt-drive system and updated ProDrive XL transmission to optimise fuel efficiency.

The X Series Combines are provided with integrated precision ag technologies, which collect significant machine and yield data while supporting to improve harvesting result.

The combines are available with an integrated StarFire 6000 Receiver that needs no calibration of the Terrain Compensation Module (TCM). Combined with new guidance system enhancements, the new receiver boots up and captures the GPS signal rapidly.

According to the company, JDLink is standard on both models, which facilitates machine-to-machine communication and helps the owner to share agronomic and machine-performance information.

John Deere is offering three technology packages for the X Series, including Select, Premium and Ultimate.

The Ultimate is comprised of a new heated and ventilated massaging seat that swivels 16 degrees right or left for improved operator visibility and all-day comfort.

The company is providing Signature Edition for increased levels of comfort, lighting and technology packages.

John Deere is providing X Series Combines on wheels or tracks. The X9 1000 grain tank can hold up to 420 bushels, while the X9 1100 can hold up to 460 bushels of grain.
