Taking a Closer Look at the New John Deere Forage Harvesters

September 10, 2018

The new John Deere Forage Harvesters are specifically designed to help operators boost efficiency without compromising on the quality of their harvest. The 9000 Series Self-Propelled Forage Harvesters churn out excellent silage quality that helps livestock producers improve their feeding efficiency, animal health and productivity.

Let’s take a look at some of the highlights of the new 9600, 9700, 9800 and 9900 John Deere Forage Harvesters.

9600 Self-Propelled Forage Harvester

This self-propelled forage harvester has a 616 horsepower John Deere PowerTech PSX Engine for efficiency out in the field. It also has rotary harvesting units specifically built for the feeding of high-capacity forage harvesters. The forager itself can be operated with or without the kernel processing unit in position, and the components of the machine are all designed for extreme wear and tear. Finally, the 9600 features the HarvestLab 3000 sensor, which accurately detects dry matter and provides ingredient readings as necessary.

9700 Self-Propelled Forage Harvester

Similar to the 9600, the 9700 self-propelled harvester features rotary harvesting units, a kernel processing unit, and the HarvestLab 3000 sensor. It also has a coating on its components to ensure that they can stand the test of time. However, one key difference is that it has a 759 horsepower, 24L Liebherr V12 engine. It is specifically designed to consume less fuel while maximizing uptime and lowering the overall cost of operation.

9800 Self-Propelled Forage Harvester

The 9800 Self-Propelled Forage Harvester has rotary harvesting units, a kernel processing unit, and components featuring a protective coating for longevity. However, it also features an 858 hp, 24L Liebherr V12 engine for less fuel consumption and maximum uptime. In addition, its ProStream crop flow is designed with extra heavy-duty components for high horsepower and more throughput than ever before.

9900 Self-Propelled Forage Harvester

This self-propelled forage harvester has all of the features of its predecessors – rotary harvesting units, a kernel processing unit, and components specially designed to stand the test of time. Its engine is a 956 hp, 24L Liebherr V12, which is especially designed to reduce fuel consumption and maximize uptime. The HarvestLab 3000 sensor can accurately detect dry matter, sugar, starch and more while the machine is on the go.
