With a forecast good harvest in many agricultural areas on the horizon, the trusty John Deere fleet will no doubt be doing double time across the country. One of, if not, the, most popular brand of machinery in agri business, John Deere has made some significant announcements over the past few months which same may have missed amidst the COVID-19 scenario. We catch you up with a number of new product releases.
Get in Ahead for New Headers
In August the company update the header line-up with the new HDR Rigid Cutterbar Drapers, A BP15 Belt Pickup, RDF Hydraflex Drapers and CR and CF Corn Heads. While orders for the new headers opened in August 2020, deliver is scheduled for 2021 harvest time. These new machines are compatible with the majority of S and T Series Combine Harvesters and X Series from John Deere.
For small grain growers looking to maximise hectares per hour from their harvester, the Rigid Cutterbar is ideal. Use in changing conditions, across a range of crops and irregular terrain and capture more grain. The drapers recover more crop by picking up and sweeping it across the cutter bar. According to the company’s media statement, the draper belts can assist in reducing canola cutter bar loss by 25%.
For canola and small grain growers needing increased hectares-per-hour from the X, S and T Series, the company offers the BP15 Belt Pickup. This new belt reportedly delivers a 20% faster rate of feed than the 615P.
A new line of corn heads has also been released which offers significant benefits in pulling more ears into the head and can reduce the costs of acquiring additional machinery.

In October, John Deere followed up with yet another launch, this time the new R310R Mower Conditioner, known as the MoCo. This machine delivers efficiency through mowing and conditioning a greater number of hectares at greater speed and producing enhanced hay quality. The specs: 3.1 metre with a vertical fold and rear-mounted, suited for paddocks which handle 100 hp tractors.
According to the launch release, the MoCo deliver a better quality of forage at less cost. Which of course is music to any operator as that means profitability and better chance to compete. This is a highly manoeuvrable machine so it is ideal for small paddocks and narrow access.
A key feature of MoCo is quick change knives. This can minimise downtime to provide a greater number of hay-cutting hours per day.
