A Closer Look at the Highlights of the John Deere S780

September 13, 2017

Let’s take a look at some of the key highlights of the John Deere S780.

TriStream™ Rotor

The S780’s TriStream Rotor has a slightly tapered design in the threshing area. This feature is designed to reduce the growling that typically comes with heavy rotor loads. The spiral vanes surrounding the rotor also guide crop material through the threshing and separating area in a pull-and-release action. This ultimately improves performance, and it allows the machine to operate on less power.

As the summertime air slowly moves out and fall creeps in, the nation’s corn farmers prepare for their annual fall corn harvest, with big yields on their minds.
