Profile from Machinefinder.com: The bigger machines in the STS series have an unmatched amount of power, including the John Deere 9770 combine. This model features a 360-horsepower PowerTech engine and programming abilities that allow a farmer to eliminate the need for excessive double passes.
Because the 9770 combine is a larger model, the cab space is greatly increased and allows the operator more room and a new level of comfort. This also helps to give the operator more visibility, letting them monitor the ground conditions easily and view the harvesting up close and personal.
The JD Harvest Form composite side panels allow for easier cleaning of the 9770 combine, along with reducing the weight of the powerful harvester.
