Made for Intelligent forage management John Deere HarvestLab measures both moisture and constituent content in real-time for accurate analysis of silage quality. Add to this our automatic dosing system and you can actively manage feedstock better.

Improved Reliability


Stronger springs and an improved labyrinth sealing system for the drive bearings significantly extends the long-term reliability, even in challenging conditions. We use heavy duty, German-made FAG bearings throughout the crop flow channel to ensure maximum performance.

Improved reliability 8000 Series, are available in the  of dealer Gearys Garage Ltd.

More traction We’ve increased overall tyre diameter by almost 10% on our previous SPFH generation. Larger tyres mean a larger surface area and with tyre diameters now available up to 2.15 m, this increases the amount of tyre in contact with the ground, increasing machine traction.

Higher ground clearance
The 8000 Series now offers the biggest tyres in the SPFH market - up to 2.15 m in diameter. These also give you up to 0.5m ground clearance - the best on the market. So you can tackle tough, muddy conditions without any problems thanks to improved overall traction.

Automatic accuracy 8000 Series, are available in the  of dealer Gearys Garage Ltd.

Less soil compaction
Bigger tyres give the 8000 Series a footprint 22%* larger than previous SPFHs. This spreads machine weight more evenly in the field, reducing pressure on the front axle and soil by almost a tonne. Depending on your tyre configuration and header attachment, you can reduce tyre pressure to just 1.0 bar – massively reducing potential soil compaction whilst improving overall traction.

Automatic accuracy 8000 Series, are available in the  of dealer Gearys Garage Ltd.

Automatic accuracy.
The new John Deere Active Fill Control (AFC) system makes it easier than ever to fill trailers on the go. Combine it with John Deere AMS Guidance systems like AutoTrac and RowSense and the 8000 Series is the most efficient and productive forage harvesting set-up available on the market today.

ProStream: High power,low friction 8000 Series, are available in the  of dealer Gearys Garage Ltd.

ProStream: High power, low friction
The ProStream cropflow channel has been completely redesigned with extra heavy duty components for engine horsepower outputs of much more than today’s industry power line up and a maximum throughput of more than 400 tonnes per hour. On the models from 625 hp the crop channel is 17 cm wider to provide the most efficient balance between horsepower and throughput.
The smooth, gentle arc of the channel also minimises resistance for an even cropflow stream and lower wear.

Comfortable trailer filling with our extra long foldable 12 row extension
Have a look and you´ll find out: our spout turning system is made for the toughest conditions, ensuring you can rely on it day by after day without any maintenance. Get ready for the corn season now and make use of the extra long foldable spout extension within seconds by only pressing 1 button!
