John Deere adds brains to harvest brawn

Newest launch of equipment from 'Big Green' shows a high-tech slant for new combine line, upgraded monitor for tractors and new implements. New images added.

Since its launch, John Deere has continued to innovate the S-Series combine line with new tools, and tech. For the 2018 harvest, the company is stepping up its game with the new S700 line of combines – including four new models and new headers as well.

At first glance, the new combine may not be visibly different on the outside, though the new CommandCenter cab offers a better view and other enhanced features. Under its skin, however, John Deere is bringing a lot of new technology to the party. In this gallery we'll run through the advancements for the machine itself.

Click through the gallery for more information about the new, "brainier" combine. For more information on any of the products featured in this gallery, visit and for the Frontier implements, visit
