Farmers have done their harvesting at this time of the year, so a high performance combine harvester was critical. John Deere has been making them since the 1920s and this year celebrates it being 75 years since they launched their first self-propelled combine. The self-propelled Model 55 combine launched in 1947 with a central driving position and its grain tank over the front wheels was the forerunner too many combines John Deere has since made.
Over the years we have worked closely with John Deere releasing models of their latest combines. In the late 1990s and early 2000s we made models of the North American built 9610 and the Germany made 2266 Hillside combines. More recently we released models of the 9880STS, wheeled & tracked S690i and the S700 combines. How many do you have or have had in your collection?
Last year John Deere launched the X9 1100 combine. Sporting the latest tech the twin rotor combine is the largest the firm has made. It has a 450 kW engine, 16,200 litre grain tank and uses tables between 10.7 and 15.2 metres wide. Have you spotted our new model of John Deere’s tracked X9 1100 combine? It’s provided with both grain and maize tables and like all combines John Deere makes this year it sports special decals marking their 75th anniversary.
We have many more exciting releases planned later this year and we’ll have more news about them in future Newsletters.
