The first days of harvest are usually slow until all the rust is scraped off and there are smooth surfaces for an even crop flow – you pay with your time when you don’t have anything to wait for.
To prevent this from happening a time intensive preservation can be done before storing your header. Why not skip these steps, save time and money? Overcome the initial struggle.
The new and improved 700X has the solution. All crop contacting surfaces in the passive feed section are now made from stainless steel. From the low-profile integrated stone dam over the feed plates to the seal lip you get a smooth surface from the first day of harvest.
Optimized harvest starts without waiting that the rust is off.
A stainless steel feed floor is standard equipment on the 700X Series Cutting Platforms. With model year 2023 the 700X will also get a stainless steel stone dam design, which is completely integrated into the table design integrated. Additionally enables the new table design an easier maintenance.
To connect the frame with the moveable parts, the 700X has additional stainless steel feed plates riveted onto the frame to have a smooth crop handover to the auger. These riveted feed plates are like an extension from the header frame to the moveable parts.
Harvest windows are getting shorter and crop rotations are getting more versatile. Producers have to change between crops more often and have to adapt to different conditions during the day. The 700X offers many innovative features to enable a fast change between crops and conditions.

The table is seamlessly adjustable without any inserts or other loose parts. The conversion from small grain to rapeseed and vice versa is done in 3 minutes and requires no tools. The table can be positioned in any range without any inserts. The operation is done from the cab. The travel of the table over the full 710-mm (27,9-in.) adjustment range takes less than 30 seconds.
The 700X Header is totally integrated in the John Deere combines. Change fast to the changing contions without leaving the cab. Intelligent software on the combine allows the operator to enter plant height and desired stubble height in the armrest display. This data, together with the entered amount of crop harvested, allows the combine to make a pre-set of the cutting table for optimized operation.
