Published:

This week during the online special event, John Deere shared new product updates for each step of the production cycle — prepare, plant, apply and harvest — during the 2021 Commodity Classic. These advances in equipment and technology will help customers be more sustainable and productive than ever before.

Here’s the breakdown of everything that Deere unveiled this week:

John Deere 8 Series Tractor

  • New Central Tire Inflation System (CTIS) allows for quick tire pressure adjustments from the cab — going from transport to field settings is push-button easy.
  • New available integrated 1,000-gallon ExactRate Tractor Tanks for 8RX Tractors — can be paired with a John Deere planter for a combined 1,600-gallon total carrying capacity.
  • Integrated intelligence includes JDLink connectivity, AutoTrac guidance, StarFire 6000 Receiver and more to enable farmers to easily benefit from a connected machine.

Industry’s first factory-installed, integrated tractor and planter solution

  • Industry-first, factory-installed tractor and planter liquid fertilizer solution comes with integrated 1,000-gallon (3785L) ExactRate Tractor Tanks for 8RX Tractors that can be paired with a MY22 planter for a combined 1,600-gallon (6057L) total fluid capacity.
  • New factory-installed fluid tanks hold up to 600 gallons (2271L) while seed tank capacity has been increased 30% from previous models to increase the time between fills and improve efficiency during critical planting windows.
  • New factory-installed option replaces tires with tracks for the 1775NT that improve flotation and reduce ground pressure to 13.3 psi, thus reducing soil compaction for additional agronomic benefits.

New 400 and 600 Series Sprayers

  • The 400 Series Sprayer lineup includes the 280-hp 408R, 310-hp 410R and 326-hp 412R. The 600 Series includes the 355-hp 612R and 375-hp 616R Sprayers. Tank sizes range from 800 up to 1,600 gallons depending on the model.
  • All 400 and 600 Series Sprayers feature a new, larger cab with choice of three available comfort and convenience packages, and three lighting and visibility packages to provide all-day operator comfort and improve visibility in difficult conditions.
  • The 400 Series Sprayers can reach field speeds of up to 20 mph, and up to 30 mph during transport, while the 600 Series can reach field speeds of up to 25 mph and transport up to 35 mph.

See & Spray Select for 400 and 600 Series Sprayers

  • See & Spray Select can help farmers reduce their non-residual, pre-emerge herbicide use by 77% on average1 by targeting and spraying only weeds on fallow ground.
  • With See & Spray Select, farmers can use more expensive and complex tank mixes, and use these mixes more efficiently than what they can broadcast today, reducing their costs, while improving their ability to manage herbicide-resistant weeds.
  • See & Spray Select is built upon the John Deere ExactApply foundation to provide a single machine that provides an effective spot-spray solution and highly productive broadcast machine.

  • Articulated models feature 20 extra horsepower from an all-new John Deere PowerTech 13.6 L diesel engine to help farmers cover more acres in less time.
