A new combine is introduced to the John Deere model line-up, as well as a new 600FD Flex Draper Platform, to better meet the increasing demand for diversity and customization options for producers.

Introducing the S650 S-Series Combine
The S650 is John Deere’s new Class 5, wide-body, S-Series Combine
S650 Combine operating in-field
The S650 has many built-in performance, safety, service, and reliability features to make harvesting easier for the small to medium size producer.
The model year 2014 S-Series Combines are equipped with a Final Tier 4 engine. Along with this transition, a power increase has been achieved in the 9.0L engines within the S660 and S670 model year 2014 models.
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.
The S-Series EvenMax cleaning shoe consists of a conveyor auger system and a dual adjust chaffer. It delivers even distribution over channel width and achieves maximum separation in the front area of the chaffer.
John Deere understands how important it is to offer multiple options to our producers where tires are concerned. Every year, John Deere accesses the needs of our
producers and continuously strive to match the varying harvesting conditions.
In model year 2014, all S-Series will feature Interactive Combine Adjustment. Interactive Combine Adjustment can help inexperienced operators to become more skilled in the harvesting operation. The combine operator is able to select an area of their combine that they would like to improve such as losses/grain quality and the combine will recommend adjustments to better optimize the combine.
