X Series Combine with BP15
John Deere Combines increase capacity in tough canola and other windrow crops; don’t limit this extreme performance by pairing it with a different belt pickup. No matter what crops or conditions you face, including thick canola, blown crop, or uneven windrows, the BP15 helps you put more grain in the tank while you cover more acres per day.
- Pick up 12.1 ha (30 acres) of wheat and 10.1 ha (25 acres) of canola windrows per hour with a John Deere X Series Combine and BP15 – The wider feeder house opening with adjustable feed auger flighting and tines enables higher productivity than the S790 Combine with the 615P Belt Pickup.
- Reduce slug feeding and the chance of plugging – Increase feed auger speed by 20 percent (compared to the 615P) with a two-speed auger drive sprocket for canola and high-yielding wheat. Or, use the slower speed feed rate for less bulky crops like cereals and grass seed. A feed auger spacer keeps the position of the auger at maximum height when harvesting large windrows.
- Send grain into the feeder house – The windscreen and a factory-installed crop shield move free grain into the tank, reducing the amount of debris on the feeder house or hitting the windshield while reducing grain loss over the backsheet by up to 0.1 bu/acre in canola.
- Handle large windrows without slowing down – Reduce plugging in large windrows with a heavy-duty clutch located at the auger rather than the platform back shaft. In the rare case of a plug, take care of it without leaving the cab with the hydraulic reverser. The removal system automatically activates when the feeder house is reversed and delays the belt engagement. The belt delay feature is exclusive to John Deere.
