This special display will also feature the new 7750i self-propelled forager, 5430i self-propelled sprayer and T560 combine, which were launched in 2007, plus the latest John Deere balers and trailed sprayers. The company’s technical and sales staff and local dealer personnel will be on hand to explain the latest technology behind the new machines, which are spearheading John Deere’s equipment range for the 2008 season.

John Deere’s new mid-specification 6030 Series tractors from 83 to 155hp are designed for wider appeal to a bigger range of customers, particularly mixed and livestock farmers looking for reliability, performance, higher levels of comfort and simple operation as standard. A number of changes have been made to the cab, to improve the operator environment, and there is a wider choice of transmissions than on previous models.

New levels of power, ‘intelligent’ technology and productivity are offered by John Deere's 7050 Series self-propelled forage harvesters, which includes models from 380 to 690hp. Designed for high capacity harvesting in grass, maize and wholecrop, this latest range continues to use Deere’s unique infinitely variable length of cut (IVLOC) transmission to enable operators to change chop length on the move.

In addition to the basic models, six new i Series machines will be equipped as standard with an integrated ‘intelligent’ package of precision farming technology. This includes the HarvestLab dry matter sensor, GreenStar 2600 display, Harvest Monitor and Harvest Doc software and StarFire iTC receiver with SF2 signal (offering +/-10cm accuracy for yield mapping). The new AutoLOC feature also provides automatic adjustment of the length of cut depending on the dry matter content of the crop being harvested, based on settings programmed in by the operator on the in-cab GreenStar display.

With the introduction of the TTS system on new T Series combines, John Deere now offers customers five distinct threshing and separating technologies, depending on model. The TTS system improves separation capacity, and therefore combine output, by 15 per cent compared with previous machines, while maintaining the same grain and straw quality and low fuel consumption. This improved output is particularly noticeable when working in damp conditions or with high volumes of straw.
