    All X9 Combines provide a quiet, comfortable ride with visibility, control, and convenience that are even better than previous John Deere cabs. Choose from three comfort and convenience packages to find a cab that fits you best.

    • Leather seat with massage, heating and cooling, electronic controls, and increased swivel (up to 16 degrees, both left and right) – When you sit down in the plush leather seat, the long days and nights won’t seem so long. It’s also quiet enough to take a phone call without worry. You’ll love the convenience of five cup-holders, an accessory rail with an iPad® tablet mount, USB and power ports, and closed storage. Plus, you can easily connect your smartphone to the 16.5-cm (6.5-in.) touchscreen radio to enjoy your favorite playlist or podcast.

    • Smooth out 90 percent of vertical movements with ActiveSeat™ suspension – The electric motor responds instantly to the ruts, bumps, and jolts, delivering an unbelievably comfortable ride. While you’re harvesting more acres per hour, you’ll stay refreshed and alert.

    • Get unmatched visibility – The 360-degree light-emitting diode (LED) lighting package delivers twice as much illumination as previous designs. Unloading on the go during the day is easier, too. The wide 106-degree unloading auger gives you a straight line of sight to the grain cart, while cameras on the unloading auger, grain tank, and rear of combine help you see into the grain cart, grain tank, and everything behind you.

    • Make in-cab adjustments with more programmable features on the CommandARM™ controls – Feeder house tilt, header resume, machine speed, AutoTrac™ guidance, unloading, residue spread widths, and even more features are located on the CommandARM controls using logical, color-coded, and easy-to-read icons that make it a breeze to run the combine or train new operators. You can even program the functions you use most with up to 30 percent more programmable features than any other combine controller.

    The X Series helps reduce fuel costs by 20 percent per bushel harvested. Plus, you can count on an improved grain tank sample and better residue spread, which adds up over a harvest season. With this improved design, you can harvest more acres per day with improved fuel consumption.

    • 20 percent better fuel efficiency per bushel harvested - Run 14 hours without stopping for fuel and enjoy fuel savings of up to 20 percent or more as measured in gallons per bushel. An updated John Deere engine, belt drive system, and ProDrive™ XL transmission make it possible. The JD14 (13.6 L, 830-cu in.) engine runs at 1900 rpm during harvest and is partnered with an updated driveline layout that reduces parasitic loss to improve fuel economy. The ProDrive XL transmission leverages two efficient motors to improve power transfer at typical harvesting speeds, and when moving to the next field you can travel up to 40 km/h (25 mph) to get back to harvesting.

    • 36 percent larger cleaning shoe more efficiently cleans high-yielding and high-foreign-matter crops with less loss and a better grain tank sample - Conditions may change throughout the day but your grain quality won’t. The massive 7-m2 (75-sq ft) Dyna-Flo™ XL cleaning shoe delivers 36 percent more cleaning area to effectively handle thin dry crop, thick wet crop, and everything in between.

    • Uniform residue spread up to 15.2 m (50 ft) with the ability to properly size residue from the cab - Size the chaff and spread it where you want it to speed decomposition and improve soil warming – a feature you’ll really appreciate next year in the spring.


  • More bushels per hour, more acres per day

  • John Deere X9 1100 vs. CLAAS® 8800 – Independent PAMI benchmarking
    X9 1100, PAMI storage band and collector X9 1100, PAMI storage band and collector

    Combine capacity, time, and money - what are they worth to you? In late September and early October of 2020, John Deere contracted PAMI (Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute) to conduct independent benchmarking of the John Deere X9 1100 Combine versus the CLAAS 8800 Combine. PAMI tested these combines in tough wheat and canola conditions in Western Canada, and what they found was impressive. Read the full PAMI reports at


    In 102 bu/acre wheat, PAMI found the X9 1100 Combine had a 28 percent capacity advantage over the CLAAS 8800 at a 1 percent total loss threshold (figure 10 of the PAMI report). Considering a farm with 8,000 acres of wheat, here is a breakdown of how a John Deere X9 Combine would compare to a CLAAS 8800 when harvesting wheat at 1 percent loss:


    Harvesting wheat at 1 percent loss

    Savings per acre

    Total fleet value depreciation




    In depreciation saved

    Days of harvest needed (14-hour days) with two machines




    Fewer harvest days

    Time and money

    With a John Deere X9 Combine, you can simply harvest more acres in less time and with less grain loss. In fact, as you can calculate from the PAMI testing results, the X9 Combine can save you 6.3 total harvest days when compared to the CLAAS 8800 in a two-machine harvest scenario. This is essentially a week of time saved in the field with your combines. A lot can happen in one week, including rain storms that reduce your wheat’s test weight or snow storms that can prolong your harvest and make for very difficult harvesting conditions in the future. An X9 combine helps you manage this risk by enabling a faster and cost-saving wheat harvest, so you can get into other crops such as canola and pulses much earlier.


    In addition to getting your crop out of the field faster, an X9 Combine also directly saves you money by requiring less time to do the same amount of work. The X9 can save you $0.66 per acre in operator time and $5.53 per acre in depreciation savings, for a total savings of up to $6.19 per acre when running at 1 percent loss.


    Everything discussed until this point has been at a 1 percent loss rate. Let’s say storms are in the forecast and you need to get your wheat crop off the field as fast as possible. An X9 Combine is up to that task as well. When PAMI tested both machines to a power limit condition (figure 10 of the PAMI wheat report), here’s what they found:


    Harvesting wheat at power limit

    X9 1100

    CLAAS 8800

    X9 1100


    Grain loss (percent/acre)




    Percent less loss per acre

    Grain loss value (dollars/acre)




    Savings per acre

    At power limit, the X9 1100 never exceeded 2 percent loss, and the CLAAS 8800 reached a 6 percent loss rate. When you need to get your crop off the field as fast as possible, the X9 can save you up to $24.07 per acre compared to the CLAAS 8800. Additionally, more available power would not have helped the CLAAS 8800 close this gap, since the 8800’s loss rate was already increasing at a higher rate compared to the X9 1100. If rain or snow is in the forecast or if you are short on time, an X9 Combine can deliver outstanding performance in tough conditions as demonstrated in the results of the PAMI testing.

    Canola harvesting

    Maximum throughput achieved (tonnes/hr)




    More tonnes/hr

    Fuel consumption (gal./100 bu)




    Percent less fuel per bushel

    When PAMI tested the machines in canola, both machines performed well in tough conditions. Each machine reached a total throughput of 63 tonnes/hr or 1,152 bu/hr at a 3 percent loss rate. However, the X9 1100 used 18 percent less fuel per bushel harvested than the CLAAS 8800 in these tests. When you consider this on a farm with 4,000 acres of canola, you’d save over 1,227 gal. of fuel or $0.79 per acre. PAMI also mentions that machine noise and distress were limiting factors on how hard the machines could be pushed in these conditions, and the X9 1100 could be ran at a higher throughput (see figure 10 of the PAMI canola report). This again speaks to the performance of X9 Combines when needing to harvest in the toughest conditions.


    More acres in less time and with less cost is what the independent PAMI benchmarking results prove you get when you purchase a John Deere X9 Combine. Reach out to your John Deere dealer to learn more about how the X9 Combine can help you be more successful in your operation.

  • All-day performance in all crops and conditions with the X9 Combine
    X Series harvesting in the early morning and late at night X Series harvesting in the early morning and late at night

    You want the ability to be more productive early in the morning when the crop is tougher and later in the evening as the dew settles. With the X Series, no matter what condition your fields are in, it keeps performing like it’s the middle of the day. More importantly, the combine stretches the length of the harvest window, allowing you to get in the fields sooner and stay later than before, without risking a loss in productivity or grain quality.

    Comparison of features between S-Series and X Series Combines Comparison of features between S-Series and X Series Combines
    • More productivity in the early morning and late afternoon – The feederhouse is 23 percent wider than previous models, allowing it to handle as much as 100 tons/hr of wheat or 253,721.3 L (7200 bu) per hour of high-yielding corn. Increased rotor threshing and separation area improves your ability to harvest in tough conditions. Increased cleaning shoe area improves your grain tank sample, the 23 percent wider residue system can effortlessly chop and spread residue. The result is an X9 Combine that can handle early-morning’s thick wet crop or the highest-yielding parts of your field with less plugging.

    • Automated setting adjustments with Combine Advisor™ package – Crop conditions change dramatically throughout the day and from field to field, which means you can spend time changing combine settings or you can run an X Series Combine that makes the adjustments for you. Combine Advisor adjusts all five harvesting settings as conditions change, reducing grain loss and improving quality. It automatically compensates for changing conditions like wet straw and dewy conditions, even if you can’t see them.

    • Faster crop changeover with improved rotor/fast rpm shift, lighter concaves, and no-tools-required grain tank cleanout – Spend more time harvesting and less time prepping. The rotor and fast gear shift location has moved next to the cab door entrance for quick shifting when changing to different crops. The half-width concaves are lighter, making them easier to handle and remove. Each of the six concaves weigh less than 14 kg (31 lb), and drop-down cradles make it easy to slide the concaves into position. No tools are required to clean out the grain tank, making it easier to quickly remove crop before heading to the next field.

    Make business decisions with the integrated technologies in the X Series. The combine learns on the go to improve your harvest, reduce losses, and leave cleaner grain. You’ll collect more accurate data, improve harvest results with automation, and make more informed decisions by connecting all your machines. What’s even better, the X9 Combines do much of this automatically in the background.

    • StarFire™ 7000 Integrated Receiver eliminates all setup, installation, and calibrations – The integrated design is ready to harvest with AutoTrac™ guidance in base. There is no need to verify machine and receiver measurements, as this has been done precisely for you at the factory.

    • Improve grain quality and reduce losses with Combine Advisor™ package - Automatically adjust the combine’s harvest settings. Cameras on the clean grain and tailings elevator help you make informed decisions on the crop that is flowing up and into the grain tank.

    • Automation 4.0 - The combine can unload 100 times or more every day with larger heads, so caution and safety are even more important. Machine Sync connects the grain cart to the combine, letting the combine operator adjust the speed and location of the cart, automating all tractor movement. The grain cart operator can see where all the combines are in the field, as well as which one is closest to full, prioritizing unloading and improving overall logistics. AutoPath™ system maps each planter row and maximizes harvest efficiency by creating your harvest AB lines, keeping the header full during each pass.

    • Send data to your home office, dealer, or trusted partners - All X9 Combines come with a 5-year subscription to JDLink™ Connect, which automatically sends yield maps and other harvest data to the Operations Center for later analysis. From your office, JDLink gives you a look at all your machines – where they are, how they’re performing, and what action you can take to improve your harvest.

    • Generate, collect, and analyze all your harvest data easier than ever with John Deere Operations Center - Operations Center makes it easier than ever to view, analyze, and compare different map layers and print out reports to make next year’s harvest even more profitable. Plus, you have access to more than 100 connected software tools, and you can easily share your harvest data with your trusted partners to help you make better decisions.
