John Deere engine speed management
 
In-cab road mode engage funtion
Engine speed management consists of new engine software that has been added to model year 2014 combines equipped with the ProDrive™ transmission. When the combine is in transport mode, the software limits the engine to a lower rpm but will still reach full transport speed. This results in an increased fluid economy of up to 15 percent, in addition to decreased noise both in and out of the cab during transport.
