Active Concave Isolation (ACI) increases threshing capacity

    ACI increases throughput in tough threshing small grains and rice without sacrificing overall grain savings. This system allows producers to continue to harvest outside the optimal harvest window and conditions. The concaves are suspended by hydraulic cylinders that increase the amount of crop that is being threshed as well as reduces the amount of rotor noise that is heard by the operator.

    Feature benefits:
    • In tough threshing, small grains producers can see up to a 10 percent increase in machine capacity while maintaining their loss level when the combine is equipped with a tough crop packages
    • In tough material handling conditions, the tough crop packages improve the throughput of the combine up to 20 percent to better utilize true machine performance outside the optimal harvest window and conditions, while accepting increased loss levels
    • Improved drivability and ability to handle slugs
    • Enhanced durability and uptime with the elimination of sheer bolts in the system
    • Increased operator comfort with the reduction of concave banging noise

    The ACI feature hydraulically suspends the concaves; the consistency of the concave gap is increased along with decreasing sensor drift for a more accurate concave distance. Material flow through the threshing section of the machine is smoother, giving more consistent threshing.

Automatic shifting with ProDrive™ transmission

    Harvesting in rolling ground and slopesHarvesting in rolling ground and slopes

    The industry-exclusive ProDrive system uses PowerShift™ transmission technology to automatically shift between two speed ranges as ground conditions and terrain change to keep the combine harvesting at the desired ground speed.  Valuable harvest time will no longer be lost shifting on hills and when exiting fields to start transporting.


    Feature benefit:

    • Precise control of the combine speed (when going up or down hills), without the need to continuously monitor and adjust the multifunction control lever
    • Retains high levels of productivity through the speed ranges with shift-on-the-go technology
    • Maintains ground speed when engaging four-wheel drive (4WD) (if equipped)
    • Operator-selected maximum speed within each range, allowing for more precise control of the combine in delicate operations (for example, when hooking up headers)

    The ProDrive system on S700 Combines includes an integrated Harvest Smart™ feedrate control system to provide the maximum productivity and reduce operator stress and fatigue.



    The ProDrive hydrostatic motor has a higher displacement than the previous hydrostatic systems. Both the pump and motor are variable-displacement components that allow ProDrive to maintain high levels of torque to the ground throughout each of the two operating-speed ranges.


    Range one can be set for typical harvesting speeds. Range two can be used when higher speeds are needed during harvest or when transporting the combine.


    The ground speed can be infinitely varied within both modes by the operator, using the multifunction control lever on the CommandARM™ armrest console. The multifunction lever regulates the high-capacity, variable hydrostatic pump and motor that drives the ground speed.


    Using the navigation tools on the armrest, the operator can dial in the desired maximum-attainable speed within each of the two speed ranges. The maximum forward speed in either range can be set from 0 to 38.6 km/h (0 to 24 mph). The maximum speed in range one cannot be set higher than the maximum speed for range two. For example, if a maximum harvest speed of 13 km/h (8 mph) is desired and set, the full forward position of the hydrostatic control handle will deliver the speed of 13 km/h (8 mph).


    The ProDrive transmission is equipped with an electrohydraulic differential lock with a four-pinion differential.  Non-ProDrive combines have a two-pinion differential. When operating in muddy, hilly terrain or in sandy conditions that may cause one of the tires to lose traction, this differential lock enables the operator to maintain productivity. If traction is lost, the operator can quickly and easily engage the differential lock by pressing the differential lock button on the CommandARM armrest console. An indicator light within the button alerts the operator that the differential locking feature is engaged.

    ICA2 run pageICA2 run page


    Auto Maintain looks at the level at which the combine is performing, sets that as the goal, and automates combine settings to continually hit the target performance goal over and over again. Auto Maintain uses existing sensor input along with the ActiveVision cameras to make decisions for accurate combine adjustments. It does not use grain moisture as an input, however. Auto Maintain is able to hit the target goal by making adjustments to the threshing speed, concave clearance, chaffer clearance, sieve clearance, and fan speed automatically. The ActiveVision cameras have been trained by university experts to analyze the clean grain and tailings material and input that analysis into the Auto Maintain system. Auto Maintain will show the operator how it has been performing with a constantly updating historical graph of losses, grain quality, and foreign material in the clean grain. The green shaded area indicates the performance targets set. The colored lines show the ongoing levels of losses and quality. For example, the green, purple, and orange lines below show a period of time outside of the green shaded acceptable area. Auto Maintain with ActiveVision cameras recognizes this and the combine advisor package makes the appropriate adjustments to meet the set targets.

    Historical Auto Maintain performance graphHistorical Auto Maintain performance graph

    The ActiveVision cameras can detect broken and unthreshed grain. The cameras will also detect lightweight and heavy material to make the appropriate combine changes. If the operator wants to see the grain as well, the system will color highlight the broken and unthreshed grain to make it easier to analyze. The live view and historical graphs update constantly and the cameras can even tell the operator if they have debris on the lens.

    Additional Combine Advisor package features:
    Auto Maintain

    Auto Maintain with ActiveVision cameras is technology that works by automatically adjusting S700 Combine settings to maintain the ideal targeted performance. When harvesting corn, soybeans, wheat, canola, or barley, the combine will maintain the performance of everything from grain loss and grain quality to foreign material in the grain tank. The ActiveVision cameras, along with grain loss monitors, are specifically designed to identify the impact of crop condition changes and adjust the combine to maintain your target performance, allowing you to focus on other challenges of harvest.


    Feature benefits:

    • Simply harvest by automating the critical workload of constantly managing combine settings when conditions change
    • Increase productivity by allowing ActiveVision cameras to identify and address tough to spot problems such as cracked grain
    • Provides flexibility in planning overall business and increases the productivity of the combine independent of operator experience

TriStream™ rotor designed for coarse grains and easy-threshing small grains

    The TriStream rotor is unique to John Deere because it features a slightly tapered design in the threshing area for best-in-class grain quality while dramatically reducing the growling that often comes with heavy rotor loads. The TriStream rotor is recommended for producers who harvest mainly coarse grains along with easy-threshing small grains.


    The spiral vanes surrounding the rotor guide the crop material through the threshing and separating area in a pull-and-release action to improve performance. This John Deere S700 Combine feature will generate less power consumption.


    Feature benefits:

    • TriStream rotor technology reduces the force required to move material through the combine by as much as 20 percent, maximizing fuel efficiency.
    • The rifling grooves on the threshing elements allow the bullet-shaped rotor to move material more efficiently, maximizing crop threshing performance and grain quality.
    • Heavy-duty vanes on the top covers propel the crop smoothly rearward through the length of the rotor ensuring all the threshed grain is separated.
