John Deere is launching a new four-track tractor, combine and self-propelled sprayer this summer.

Built in a compact frame for easy manoeuvrability in the field, the 8RX Series has been developed with the aim of maximising soil protection without compromising tractor performance.

Also new is the X9 combine, designed to help large-scale farmers achieve more tonnes per hour and more hectares per day, specifically in tough, high yielding, wet conditions.

The X9 1100 can harvest wheat at an impressive 100 tonnes per hour at less than one per cent grain loss.

The X9 Series combines were recognised in the Robotics category of the 2021 CES Innovation Awards and also received a 2021 AE50 Award for outstanding innovations that improve production agriculture.

Precision and intelligent technology are also incorporated in the mid-range R740i trailed sprayer.

This 4000-litre capacity machine offers boom widths from 18 to 30m, with premium features including a new multi-functional control lever, the Solution Command operator station and the proven PowrSpray dual-circuit solution system.

This reduces filling times, improves spray application and increases accuracy.

This new sprayer is also available with a closed transfer system (CTS)-ready option, and can be equipped with an individual nozzle control (INC) system.

This electronic solution allows customers to save up to five per cent of the cost of plant protection products.
