John Deere has added the X9 1000 and X9 1100 combines to its 2021 harvesting lineup.

The X9 1100 can harvest up to 30 acres of tough, high-yielding wheat per hour and harvest up to 7,200 bushels per hour in high-yielding corn. “As conditions change, an X9 Combine can make automatic adjustments for the operator so it consistently operates at peak levels,” said Matt Badding, harvesting product manager for John Deere. “For example, in the morning, straw can be damp and make threshing and separating tough. By midday, the moisture evaporates and harvesting conditions improve. In the past, these changes required operators to adjust combine settings to help the machine compensate. Now, the adjustments are made automatically.”

The 75-square-foot Dyna-Flo XL Cleaning Shoe has 36 percent more cleaning area than the S790. “It can harvest thin dry crop, thick wet crop and everything in between, putting more high-quality grain in the tank pass after pass. Even if conditions change, grain quality remains high,” Badding said.

Available in both wheeled models or tracks, X Series Combines are equipped with the all-new John Deere PowerTech 13.6L Engine which works with a robust belt-drive system and updated ProDrive XL Transmission to improve fuel efficiency.

JDLink is standard on both models and comes with five years of service, offering machine-to-machine communication and making it easier for owners to share agronomic and machine-performance information.

Three technology packages are available for the X Series including Select, Premium and Ultimate. Select includes the StarFire 6000 Integrated Receiver, Generation 4 4600 Display, Harvest Smart™, Interactive Combine Adjustment and is Connect Mobile ready. Three comfort and convenience cab packages of the same name are also available.
