Below are just some of the new releases from John Deere that left customers wanting to try the equipment out for themselves.
John Deere Triplex Mowers
At the start of 2020, John Deere announced that it would be rolling out three new triplex mowers in the spring; this included the 2400 PrecisionCut™, 2550 PrecisionCut, and the 2550 E-Cut™ Hybrid mowers. These machines, which were specifically designed for golf course maintenance, would feature offset cutting units and right-hand Command Arm-mounted controls for ease of use throughout the workday.
John Deere AutoTrac Controller 300
Customers who want the benefits of AutoTrac™ guidance with their machine were excited to learn in March 2020 that John Deere would be introducing its new AutoTrac Controller 300 offering. This after-market steering kit would not impact operator ergonomics, nor would it require steering wheel modifications. Instead, it would be customizable to different types, ages, and brands of ag machines, all while providing the benefits of AutoTrac precision guidance. In addition to these customizable features, the initial announcement also noted that this kit would be simple to install and calibrate, and that owner maintenance would be a breeze, putting a nice bow on an already exciting prospect.
John Deere X Series
In June 2020, John Deere announced that it would be adding two new models of X Series Combines to its 2021 harvesting lineup to meet the needs of large-scale producers. The new X9 1000 and X9 1100 Combines would not only increase harvesting performance but also simplify tasks during the workday thanks to their ability to thresh, separate, and clean more bushels per hour, regardless of the conditions. This means less downtime and more productivity for customers everywhere.Click here to see more...
