The John Deere S7 Series – The Most digital Combine yet!

Here’s how it works:

  • Dual, forward-mounted stereo cameras: These cameras constantly monitor crop height and volume in real-time.
  • Pre-harvest satellite field images: Combined with the data from the cameras, these images create a predictive field map.
  • Automated speed adjustments: Based on the collected data, the system automatically adjusts the S7’s ground speed to match the varying crop density.

This translates to:

  • Reduced operator workload: The system automates adjustments, allowing you to focus on other aspects of the harvest.
  • Improved efficiency: By maintaining optimal speed, you can cover more ground in less time.
  • Reduced grain loss: Consistent speed helps to minimize grain loss due to bouncing or over-acceleration.
  • Maximized yield: Efficient harvesting ultimately leads to higher overall yields.

The S7 Series boasts four exceptional models: S7 600, S7 700, S7 800 and the S7 900. Each model is designed to cater to specific needs, ensuring that farmers have the power and efficiency required for their unique operations.

The S7 600:

· 382 max engine horsepower

· 3.6 bu/s (126.8 liters/s) peak unload rate

· 300-bushel (10,057-liter) grain tank

· PowerTech™ 9L Engine

The S7 700:

· 460 max engine horsepower

· 4.2 bu/s (148 liters/s) peak unload rate

· 300-bushel (10,057-liter) grain tank

· PowerTech™ 9L Engine

The S7 800:

· 540 max engine horsepower

· 4.2 bu/s (148 liters/s) peak unload rate

· 400-bushel (14,095-liter) grain tank

· PowerTech™ 13.6L Engine

The S7 900:

· 617 max engine horsepower

· 4.2 bu/s (148 liters/s) peak unload rate

· 400-bushel (14,095-liter) grain tank

· PowerTech™ 13.6L Engine

Notably, the S7 600 & S7 700 share the same volume grain tank and engine, while the S7 700 & S7 800 & S7 900 share the same peak unload rate, and the S7 800 & S7 900 have the same volume grain tank.

  1. Automation:

Predictive Ground Speed Automation:

The S7 uses the two forward, cab mounted stereo cameras to measure the crop height and volume. Pre-harvest satellite field images are generated to display a predictive field map and the combine uses this data to automatically adjust ground speed before entering changing crop areas. This automation helps you increase your combine productivity while minimizing grain loss.

Harvest Settings Automation:

Harvest Settings Automation takes precision farming to the next level by automatically adjusting critical parameters such as rotor speed, fan speed, and concave, chaffer, and sieve clearances.

Operating this tool is a breeze through the G5Plus display. Farmers can set their preferred limits for grain loss, foreign material, and broken grains. Once these thresholds are established, the combine takes charge, making real-time adjustments to optimize performance.

The significance of Harvest Settings Automation lies in its ability to expedite the harvesting process. By reducing the need for constant monitoring and manual adjustments, it allows farmers to focus on the task at hand – harvesting efficiently and effectively.

Should the set limits be exceeded, the display provides clear insights into the adjustments being made and the reasons behind them. This transparency ensures operators remain informed and in control throughout the harvest.

Included in harvest setting automation are the following technologies, Machine sync, Harvest IPM and Active Yield™.

Machine Sync: This feature allows the combine operator to take control of the grain cart operating in tandem. In-field data sharing facilitates the exchange of critical information and guidance lines among multiple operators, promoting teamwork and efficiency.

Harvest IPM (Intelligent Power Management): Harvest IPM unleashes the full potential of the engine by enabling operators to set power limits up to 105% at rated speed. It acts as a power booster, optimizing energy utilization during grain pumping and other demanding tasks.

ActiveYield™: A system that measures the grain in the cart, ActiveYield™ eliminates the need for manual calibrations. It ensures accuracy by automatically calibrating as the tank fills, saving time and enhancing efficiency.


Crafted to conquer the toughest conditions, the John Deere PowerTech™ , 13.6L, turbocharged 830 cubic inch power plant stands as the driving force behind this agricultural titan. It delivers maximum rated power at a lower engine RPM, providing not only robust performance but also ensuring engine longevity.

Fuel efficiency takes center stage in this power-packed narrative. The S7 Series doesn’t just offer power; it does so with a remarkable 10% reduction in fuel consumption.


In-Base Technology:

Integrated G5Plus CommandCenter™ Display:

Upgrades to the G5Plus Display includes seeing more and easily making machine adjustments with a 35% larger screen, fast processor for quick boot times and 1080p HD resolution.

The G5 Advanced package is also available, more info at https://www.deere.com/en/technology-products/precision-ag-technology/guidance/advanced-technologies/
