John Deere at Grassland & Muck 2017

John Deere’s new 6250R tractor with the award-winning CommandPRO joystick, premium C441R wrapping baler and Manure Sensing system are all making their UK public working demonstration debut at Grassland & Muck 2017 at Stoneleigh, Warwickshire in May.

The 6250R tractor will be equipped with John Deere’s triple mower conditioner (TMC), consisting of a front-mounted and two rear-mounted units. To achieve the maximum cutting width of 9.9m, an F350R 3.5m wide front mower-conditioner can be combined with the largest available R990R rear-mounted units. The combination of the smaller F310R front-mounted mower with either the R950R or R870R rear mowers reduces the cutting width to 9.5 or 8.7m respectively.

The light, powerful 6250R features an AutoPowr transmission and develops up to 300hp with Intelligent Power Management. It is fitted as standard with JDLink telematics, including remote display access (RDA) and wireless data transfer (WDT) linked to the MyJohnDeere.com website portal.

Options include a new connectivity package featuring MyJobsConnect and MyJobsManager apps, which enable drivers to view and carry out tasks in real time via their mobile device. John Deere is also the first full-line agricultural manufacturer to introduce a navigation and logistics optimisation system specially designed for farm use.

Developed to meet the high-capacity requirements of contractors and larger livestock farms, the new C441R premium wrapping baler incorporates a heavy-duty drive system rated at up to 210hp with 1000rpm pto. The new 18-roller bale chamber has also increased in width, from 117 to 121cm.

The baler features a number of other enhancements designed to improve the machine’s overall durability and performance in both heavy, wet grass crops and dry straw, so it is now a true all-rounder when it comes to producing bales with consistent density and shape in all crop types. The wrapping unit now features a 15 per cent faster wrapping arm working at 40rpm, and the 18 per cent faster table transfer system delivers a further big increase in productivity.

There is a choice of 2m or optional 2.2m pick-ups, feeding a high capacity MaxiCut HC rotor with 13 or 25 knives. The baler also incorporates a full width parallel drop-floor system operated from the tractor cab, which enables blockages to be removed instantly. The machine is available with a single axle as standard or with an optional tandem axle chassis for improved stability.

Now commercially available from the John Deere dealer network, the new Manure Sensing system is based on the same award winning HarvestLab near-infrared (NIR) sensor technology used on the 8000 Series self-propelled forage harvester range.

The system will be featured on a Joskin slurry tanker working in the Muck Machinery Demonstration area at the event. It is designed to adjust slurry spreader application rates to match field conditions, which helps to increase productivity and crop yields while minimising input costs.

Based on complementary data from yield mapping, soil sampling, N-sensors and other sources, the required application rate (eg target or maximum rate) can be set in the GreenStar in-cab display before starting work. Nutrient maps are easily accessible in the Operations Centre at MyJohnDeere.com.

The NIR sensor is able to measure the key constituents of the slurry being applied (dry matter, total nitrogen, ammonium, P and K) in real time. The system then automatically adjusts the final flow of slurry to deliver exactly the quantity of nutrients required.

If a John Deere tractor is used with the spreader, this process can be enhanced by the Tractor Implement Automation (TIA) system. This enables automatic speed control of the application rate adjustment, based on the tractor’s forward speed.
