JOHN DEERE COTTON PICKER CP690
Improved non-stop round module harvesting with 4.4 mph max row unit sync speed. 13.5L Tier 4 Engine with 590 peak horsepower. Next generation ProDrive with anti-slip regulation. New Premium LED lighting package.
SIMPLER, MORE PRODUCTIVE HARVEST WITH LESS LABOR
The CP690 continues the legacy of exclusive non-stop harvesting technology for increased productivity. Unlike traditional basket pickers, the CP690 provides its own onboard module building system, eliminating boll buggy drivers, module builder operators, and all the supporting equipment traditionally needed during cotton harvest.
Reduction of Labor
Reduction of Support Equipment
THE CP690 REQUIRES ONLY TWO PIECES OF SUPPORT EQUIPMENT:
Frontier CM1100 Cotton Module Handler (or equivalent)
8R Series (or equivalent) Row-Crop Tractor
These two pieces of equipment are used to stage round modules end-to-end in groups of four, so they may be picked up by a module truck. Producers and ginners also have the flexibility to haul the round modules on flatbed trailers, providing the opportunity to haul more pounds per load for reduced transport costs. Since modules can be staged any time, day or night, one tractor and CM1100 Cotton Module Handler can support multiple CP690 Cotton Pickers. This reduction in support equipment means less equipment and traffic in the field and less fuel consumption. The CP690 not only creates a simplified harvest scheme, it helps reduce frustration that producers face while having to contend with traffic on increasingly busy roads.
MORE POWER TO PICK IN DEMANDING CONDITIONS
With a 418-kW (560-hp), 13.5L (824-cu in.) John Deere PowerTech PSS Final Tier 4 (FT4) engine, the CP690 packs enough punch to pick in the most demanding conditions. An additional 22.4-kW (30-hp) of boost is generated from the turbocharger for even greater output when needed. A conventional basket picker can spend 20 percent or more of its time unloading, waiting for boll buggies, or driving back and forth to a module builder. The CP690s nonstop harvesting system keeps operators where they need to be in the field, picking cotton. Producers have been greatly impressed with the engine's power, as well as the added benefit of having the full-time four-wheel drive (4WD) and anti-slip regulation on the CP690. These standard features enable them to harvest while other crews are waiting for the ground to dry.
CONSERVE FIBER QUALITY WITH 360 DEGREES OF PROTECTION
A combination of high winds and rain can damage cotton whether in the field or at gin yards. With the fixed, 2.44-m (8-ft) wide round modules, producers and ginners receive 360 degrees of protection, creating a unique shape that keeps cotton from wicking moisture that can reduce crop quality.
Modules are wrapped three times within the CP690's onboard module builder, ensuring cotton fiber and seed protection. Each portion of wrap contains two segments of linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) film. A non-tacky layer is followed by two tacky layers to keep the round modules in a uniform shape and provide protection from dust and rain. The Z-LOCK with dual tail adhesive system ensures the tapered end of the wrap is secure in high winds and rain.
GINNING ADVANTAGES OFFERED ONLY BY JOHN DEERE
The CP690 Cotton Picker brings advantages to one of the cotton producers most important production partners - their ginners.
During the cotton ginning season, ginners are constantly on the go. They coordinate moving modules from fields to the gin yard. They manage the cotton entering the feeder floor and keep the gin running should something break down. While doing all this, they still manage to gin and package 218-kg (480-lb) bales of cotton that are ready to go to a warehouse and ultimately a mill.
In the middle of the cotton harvest season, module trucks can run 24 hours a day trying to collect cotton modules that sit on turn rows. If rain is on the way, module truck drivers may need to change their scheduled routes and go to fields that could be impassable after a deluge to ensure the cotton makes it to the gin yard.
Producers who use traditional modules have only one option to get their cotton to the gin: the traditional module truck. However, producers who generate round modules from their CP690 can move round modules with increased flexibility and multiple methods.
ROUND MODULE MOISTURE SENSING ENSURES FIBER QUALITY
The moisture sensor on the CP690 Cotton Harvester provides on-the-go, real-time moisture measurement on which operators can rely. The moisture sensor is mounted on the round module builder which reads cotton moisture levels as the round module is being formed.
Real-time data to help preserve cotton quality
Module moisture documented in Harvest Identification, Cotton Pro
Industry-leading accuracy in the critical 9 to 13 percent moisture range
Maximizes ginning efficiency through module moisture tracking
The moisture sensor continuously measures the moisture of seed cotton in contact with the moisture sensor during the round module forming process.
