JOHN DEERE COTTON STRIPPER CS690
Non-stop round module harvesting solution. 13.5L Tier 4 engine with 530 peak horsepower. ProDrive transmission with full-time 4WD. 606SH or 608SH available headers.
SIMPLER, MORE PRODUCTIVE HARVEST WITH LESS LABOR
The CS690 introduces true nonstop harvesting technology to the cotton stripper for increased productivity. Unlike traditional basket strippers, the CS690 provides its own onboard module building system, thereby eliminating boll buggy drivers, module builder operators, and all the supporting equipment traditionally needed during cotton harvest.

MORE POWER TO HARVEST IN DEMANDING CONDITIONS
The CS690 Cotton Stripper is a powerful harvesting system only from John Deere. With a 373-kW (500-hp), John Deere Final Tier 4 (FT4) 13.5L (824-cu in.) PowerTech PSS engine, the CS690 packs enough punch to harvest in the most demanding conditions.
Many ask how frequently one must stop to fill up the CS690 with diesel fuel and the answer is simple - just once a day. The 61-L (16-gal.) diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) tank will last much longer. The CS690 comes equipped with a 1022-L (270-gal.) fuel tank that allows the operator to fill up the tank while servicing the cotton stripper.
When it is time to move from one field to the next, the CS690 offers a transport configuration with a height of 4765 mm (187.5 in.). It moves from harvest mode to transport mode in roughly one minute and allows the operator to easily move down the road at 27 km/h (17 mph).
Whether trying to beat a rain coming in, harvesting in tough conditions, or simply moving from one field to the next, the CS690 provides power on which operators can depend.
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. The CS690 Cotton Stripper provides weather resilience for harvested cotton only from John Deere. With the fixed, 2.44-m (8-ft) wide round modules, producers and ginners receive 360 degree of protection, creating a unique shape that keeps cotton from blowing away and from wicking moisture that can reduce crop quality.
Modules are wrapped three times within the CS690s 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 wind, dust, and rain. The Z-LOCK dual tail-adhesive system ensures the tapered end of the wrap is secure in high winds and rain and that the next portion is ready for wrapping the next module.
GINNING ADVANTAGES OFFERED ONLY BY THE CS690
Increased flexibility in moving modules from the field to the gin yard is only the beginning of a long list of benefits ginners gain with round modules. Round modules are fully wrapped, minimizing the amount of lost cotton in the field or at the gin yard. For a gin ginning round modules, there is no need for a cleanup crew since there is no lost cotton on the ground. Conventional modules sitting on the ground have the opportunity to wick water off the ground, whereas the fully-wrapped modules keep cotton dry from the field, to the gin yard, to the gin.
Ginners have reported positive results when ginning round modules. They have found the compact, round module design helps reduce cotton loss and quality degradation. The highly engineered wrap provides weather- and element-resistant round modules that preserve the quality of fiber and seed delivered to the gin.
Overall, ginners are pleased with the consistent module size, shape, and reduced moisture levels that facilitate increased throughput at the gin. In addition, the fully recyclable wrap may be sold to recyclers in the area, an extra income for the gin.
ROUND MODULE MOISTURE SENSING ENSURES FIBER QUALITY
The moisture sensor on the CS690 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 913 percent moisture range
Maximizes ginning efficiency through module moisture tracking
THEORY OF OPERATION:
The moisture sensor continuously measures the moisture of seed cotton in contact with the moisture sensor during the round module forming process.
