When youre ready to take things to the next level, the 9000 Series is your Self-Propelled Forage Harvester. Think top-of-the-line crop analysis and documentation capabilities, unparalleled forage quality with an exceptionally robust kernel processor all powered by a true goliath of an engine with all the power anyone could ever need. Go ahead and take your business further.

956 hp, 24L Liebherr V12 engine
Driveline designed to deliver optimal crop flow when the engine is operating in its efficiency sweet spot
The ProStream crop flow designed with extra heavy-duty components for high horsepower and more throughput than ever before

Leading Header Technology - John Deere rotary harvesting units are built for reliable and powerful feeding of high-capacity forage harvesters. Two fundamental designs are available to match all producer needs. The 600plus Series Headers are the universal solution for different crops up to 4-m (13.1-ft) tall. The 700plus Series Headers are the perfect solution for high-yielding crops.

Variable Header Drive - John Deere SPFH come with variable header drive in base. The header speed is automatically synchronized with the feeding speed and length of chop through a hydrostatic IVT drive system. This ensures a gentle and even crop transfer from the header into the machine without blocking or disrupting material transition. Producers receive the benefit of high chopping quality and full leverage of the header and crop flow potential.

Dual Header Drive - Dual header drive for the SPFH and the 6X9 Series Pickups complements the benefits of the variable header drive. While the variable header drive automatically synchronizes the pickup auger and harvester feeding speed, the dual header drive with its individual hydraulic drive of the pickup tines is speed matched with vehicle speed to ensure clean crop picking in changing conditions and windows.

Hydraulic Feedroll Dampening - The 9000 Series SPFH offer the hydraulic feedroll dampener in base. Next to the four individual springs applying high pressure on the crop mat entering the machine, the dampener supports crop compaction in uneven crop conditions and ensures smooth feeding even at the highest feeding speeds when chopping for a very long period.

Unique Foreign Object Protection - A state-of-the-art metal detector scans for metal in the crop mat and stops the intake in case of tripping. Optionally, this safety device can be completed with a unique stone detection feature that senses for knocks and abnormal feedroll movement. Two redundant sensors developed for this application improve solid foreign object detection and minimize false tripping caused by lumps or uneven windrows.

John Deere self-propelled forage harvesters (SPFH) set new standards in kernel processing performance. Proven in independent tests during corn harvest in 2016 and 2017, John Deere kernel processors (KP) deliver smashed kernels and highly processed plants that growers expect. With two different models, the John Deere Premium KP kernel processor and the John Deere XStream KP kernel processor, all different needs will be satisfied.

On the 9000 Series, the proven John Deere Premium KP can be installed on the 9600 through 9800 models. With their highly intense processing, they deliver excellent forage quality at any length of cut.

The main features of the Premium KP are:
240-mm (9.45-in.) roll diameter for different crops (maize and whole crop)
32 percent speed differential; option of 40 percent speed differential
Standard KP housing with grease lubrication in base
Electric KP gap adjustment from the cab as option

The following rolls are available for the Premium KP:
Standard sawtooth (118/118 teeth)
Dura Line sawtooth (118/118 teeth)
Whole crop sawtooth (178/178 teeth)

The following additional options are also available for the Premium KP:
Crane for KP removal complete with electrical winch
Hydraulic KP belt tensioner
Electrical KP gap adjustment
40 percent speed differential
Complete whole crop KP as bundle
Temperature monitoring
Crane for KP removal complete with electrical winch

The John Deere XStream KP is the heavy-duty solution made for high throughput and high-horsepower machines and stands for extreme processing at any length of cut in any crop and any conditions.

The main features of the XStream KP are:
250-mm (9.8-in.) roll diameter
50 percent speed differential
Heavy-duty housing with KP roll quick-exchange system
Pressurized oil lubrication of bearings
Bearing temperature monitoring system (option)

The following rolls are available for the XStream KP:
Dura Line sawtooth (110/145 teeth)
Dura Line XCut (110/145 teeth)
Dura Line Whole Crop XCut (145/165 teeth) only available for 9000 Series

Due to increased machine usage (chopping more tons per hour), standard high-quality steel parts need to be replaced more frequently. Since 2010, John Deere has been meeting the challenge and exceeding expectations with Dura Line wear parts. Dura Line components were developed by John Deere and are installed in high wear spots on the self-propelled forage harvesters (SPFH), mainly in the crop flow. The technology is normally used for heavy-duty environments such as mining and machine tooling. It is the highest material quality in the industry that is installed on an SPFH.

The coating is extremely wear resistant with an extraordinarily smooth surface due to the special heat treatment and a proprietary tungsten carbide composition.
Dura Line provides a permanent fast-chopping process with low crop friction on the components while fuel consumption remains low.
Tests show that when chopping in the same crop conditions and chopping the same tonnage, Dura Line parts last four times as long as, or longer than, standard parts. Time and money associated with replacing parts are significantly reduced.

Dura Line packages
The John Deere Dura Line crop flow liners come in three packages. Depending on the individual harvesting requirements, there is a perfect package for every need.

Basic: Perfect solution for machines mainly harvesting corn
Premium: Ideal for abrasive conditions (particularly grass)
Ultimate: Perfect choice for toughest conditions, providing full crop flow coverage

The HarvestLab sensor mounts to the top of the discharge spout and takes accurate dry matter and ingredient readings (more than 4000 measurements per second) of the crop through the sapphire glass lens as crop passes through the spout. This is the same technology forage labs use to measure dry matter. HarvestLab with John Deere Constituents Sensing measures dry matter, and has the ability to measure sugar, starch, acid detergent fiber (ADF), neutral detergent fiber (NDF), and crude protein in corn silage as well as ensiled material when used as a stationary unit.

When HarvestLab is used in conjunction with Harvest Monitor, a wealth of important information becomes available to the operator, including productivity in acres per hour, throughput in tons per hour, total area harvested, total crop mass harvested, yields, and dry matter. When the HarvestLab is used in conjunction with an 8000 or 9000 Series Self-Propelled Forage Harvester (SPFH) and a GreenStar display, AutoLoc functionality is automatically present. AutoLoc automatically varies the length of cut according to the desired crop-dry matter correlation settings based on the dry matter readings from the HarvestLab sensor.

AutoLoc, a feature exclusive to John Deere, brings added value to the HarvestLab sensor and John Deere SPFH. AutoLoc works in conjunction with the HarvestLab sensor and IVLOC transmission to automatically adjust the length of cut (LOC) based on crop moisture levels to improve bunk density and reduce long particles in dry corn. Nutritionists, herdsmen, and SPFH operators will all benefit from this innovation. LOC changes are made automatically in the field based on moisture readings and predetermined settings determined by operator requirements. No in-field calibration is required to load the LOC requirements; the operator simply uses the GreenStar display to program the desired LOC settings at different moisture levels.

The John Deere 9000 Series Self-Propelled Forage Harvesters (SPFH) have been developed with a clear focus on machine performance: more throughput and less fuel consumption while providing maximum uptime and low cost of operation. A key success factor is the concept of lower engine rpm at higher harvesting component speeds.
