Badged up as 790 but obviously Somthing new being tested. As seen in the States.

I guess this is what some of the Claas users from the U.K. got taken to see in the US a few months ago.

New product launches in Valencia later this month I believe. Whether it includes combines I don’t know. Definitely tractors though.

I heard they were bringing a CTS Class type design in.
But it looks wide enough to be twin rotor.

That big spring in the hole in feeder gard looks a rock door return. Then the two speed sensors on top of feeder house ?

Looks like all US built JD combines. Not properly designed or finished.
A NH or Claas look like they were designed and engineered properly, this looks like it was designed by 10 different people who never communicated during the process.

Lots and of different stuff going on there. Some departure from the sts platform they’ve built on for so long.

That’s a pretty standard wheel spacing. The ones I used to drive were at 14’ 4”.

Sometimes I get the impression that it's not actually designing and building a machine that is important to managers in America, but it's being able to place the words 'project engineer' or 'team leader' or whatever on their CV's. Whether they were actually any good at it doesn't seem to matter.

We have a few big users of the current JD 690/790 flagships in these parts, one has 5 of them and the other two big estates have 4 apiece!! Obviously they get very good deals so as to stop them looking elsewhere, but im sure those three farms would welcome an even bigger machine to get the numbers in the field down. Looks quite smart. The JD specialist I spoke to last week said there was an embargo in place until the Valencia event at months end.

At a guess I'd say that JD's big news this autumn will be that they intend running the machines from head office, it may not be a human at a screen, instead, they will have cooked up some super dooper algorithms to identify and 'correct' a wide range of issues in the field in real time. The combines (for example) will be in constant touch with HQ (when the systems are actually working) and so a great deal of control will pass out of the farmers hands if they elect to sign up to the deal, and it will be a deal, and JD will be doing their utmost to ensure customers opt in because they will be charging well for it. For a better idea of what they may have in store it could be worth looking at Caterpillar's Minestar system, the companies are not unknown to each other.


How are they going to sell the idea? We've already seen the puffery about staff shortages and no doubt the company will be crowing about how very futuristic they are and so on. But at the end of the day it will be all about JD's bottom line, it's a big American corporation after all.

Innovation and tech in action at Cereals LIVE


There is nothing quite like seeing tech in action to understand how it works and how it can be beneficial on farm, which is why Cereals LIVE will be putting demos right at growers’ fingertips.

From state-of-the-art robotics, to autonomous tractors and electronic weeding, Cereals LIVE will have it all available in video demonstrations in the brand new Innovation and Tech Demo ring, says event director, Alli McEntyre. “It’s a brave new world for farming, with innovation driving sustainability and efficiency. Being able to see the most cutting-edge technology in action will give farmers an insight into where their businesses could be headed very soon.”

So what will growers be...
