New joystick and screen


John Deere has introduced four new S700 Series rotary combines, which they reckon have the most advanced grain harvesting technology from front to back.

The biggest physical difference customers will see in the new S700 Series combines, compared to previous models, is in the cab. This starts with the new CommandPRO joystick, which features up to seven individually programmable shortcut buttons for customising the most useful functions. The common design shared with the new 6230R and 6250R tractors will be welcomed by existing John Deere users, while newcomers should appreciate the joystick’s intuitive colour coding and backlighting of the controls.

The cab’s new GSD 4600 display is also very easy to use. “This works just like a mobile touchscreen device, with a unique swipe functionality to scroll from screen to screen,” says John Deere Limited’s combines product sales specialist Charles Grey. “The layout can also be customised according to the needs of the operator, the prevailing harvest conditions or the job to be done.”
