This rotor system efficiently threshes corn, beans, and coarse grain crops, even in difficult conditions. Advanced technology moves material through the combine harvester with less force, improving fuel efficiency without sacrificing speed or power.

Dyna-Flo™ Plus Cleaning Shoe

The Dyna-Flo™ maximizes cleaning capacity with an innovative two-step pre-cleaning process and extra-large sieve. Its design minimizes crop loss and boosts harvest quality, which is crucial during peak harvest season.

Active Concave Isolation

Available exclusively on the S800 and S900 models, this feature uses hydraulic pressure to stabilize the concave when harvesting tough crops or working in difficult conditions.

Quick and Easy Adjustable Cab

The cab provides unparalleled comfort and ease of control, designed to keep the operator focused and efficient throughout long working hours. For example, a multi-function lever lets you adjust the cutterbar’s platform tilt without leaving the cab, optimizing your cutting angle with ease.

ProDrive™ System

This system offers enhanced driving control in all terrain types, ensuring smooth operation and reduced stress on the operator. With maximum road speeds of nearly 25 mph (40 km/hr), you can get to your fields faster. 

Integrated Technologies

With tools like the Combine Advisor™ package, G5 Advanced License, JDLink™, and the John Deere Operations Center, the new S7 Series combines are equipped to deliver a highly intelligent, connected harvesting experience.
