Let’s take a look at some of the specs and key features of the John Deere 9560 STS and how it helps operators on the job.
Engine Air Scoop
The engine has air scoop advanced cooling technology. This provides continuous cool air to the engine and engine deck compartment. The radiator fan of the John Deere 9560 STS directs air over the engine as well, which helps reduce the amount of debris that gets caught in this area of the combine.
Large Engine Deck
The engine deck of the John Deere 9560 STS is larger and easier to access. The machine has a ladder landing that swings out for easy entry to the engine area. The batteries of the John Deere 9560 STS have also been relocated from the engine deck to the ground for simpler access.
The John Deere 9560 STS has an STS Bullet Rotor, which is designed to increase material handling and endure tough crops while using less horsepower. Crops are handled more smoothly as well. Rifled threshing features allow for better indexing of crops and move material through the separator at controlled speeds.
Camera Observation System
To keep a close eye on harvesting operations, the John Deere 9560 STS has a camera observation system. This gives operators a bird’s eye view of harvesting functions while working. The system includes two cameras and a flat-screen monitor, as well as camera brackets and electrical harnessing equipment.
Easy-to-Adjust STS Chopper Knives
The knife bank on the John Deere 9560 STS is designed to make it simple for operators to adjust stationary knives in the chopper. When going from crop to crop, operators will find it easier to achieve desired chop length.
The John Deere 9560 STS is compatible with the HarvestSmart control system. This system provides operators with features such as feed rate and ground speed control. HarvestSmart is also designed to ensure that the combine adapts to changing conditions while in use.
Air Chute Agitators
