Model Year 2017 S Series Combine Enhancements Machine automation technology enhancements
John Deere Connected Support with 5-year JDLink™ Machine Connectivity
Beginning with model year 2017, a 5-year JDLink™ subscription is included in base equipment on S-Series Combines. This allows a differentiated value for operators with John Deere Connected Support. This requires the modular telematics gateway (MTG) 4G LTE hardware which is included as base equipment. These enhancements in machine communication and connectivity enable better, faster transfer of data into information needed for better agronomic management decisions. This lowers total cost of operations and improves overall profitability.
