The HydraCushion suspension system allows the operator to maintain a high level of performance, reducing vertical vibrations and rocking on the road. Reducing vertical oscillation ensures the transfer of more power to the ground and more comfortable ride for the operator.

The HydraCushion suspension system

The suspension system HydraCushion John Deere includes two system:

  • Hydraulic system
  • Electrical system

Hydraulic system

the Hydraulic system consists of suspension cylinders, manifold control valve, blocking, suspension and hydraulic accumulators.

  • The accumulators provide the energy absorption of the shocks that improves ride and increases the level of operator comfort.

Electrical system

the Electrical system consists of position sensors, solenoids for the control valves and control unit for fully automatic control of the suspension system HydraCushion.

How this system works?

The joint action of mechanical, hydraulic and electrical systems are intended to maintain the proper position of the box front differential in horizontal and vertical planes relative to the chassis of the tractor regardless of the weight of the tractor and the dynamic load on it. The ability of the system to maintain the proper position in the vertical plane allows to provide full suspension travel 10,16 cm This helps to ensure constant contact of the wheels with the ground and uniform tractive effort.In addition, the suspension absorbed the energy of the aftershocks, which improves the smoothness.

Used tractor electronic and computer controls are used to control various functions, including the position of the front axle. Based on the signals received from these controls, the electrical system automatically starts the hydraulic raising, lowering or maintaining a static position.

Front axle has a special design that supports additional features such as front knife or saddle tanks.

Brake system

Braking force is proportionally distributed between the front and rear axles, which ensures efficient braking of the tractor. Operator intervention for maintenance or operation of the additional brake system is not provided.

The compatibility of the tires

the suspension System HydraCushion does not extend beyond the width of the frame of the tractor so it does not affect the configuration of the tire or ballast.

ActiveSeat uses air suspension in conjunction with the electro-hydraulic system

John Deere ActiveSeat utilizes electrohydraulic technology in combination with air suspension providing better ride quality compared to standard seats on pneumatisch.

The movements of the operator are tracked to reduce the vertical displacements. During field work seat ActiveSeat allows to reduce the vertical movement of the operator, almost 90 percent..

The system employs a hydraulic cylinder connected to the valve block. Electro-hydraulic valves mounted on the node of the control valve will automatically respond to input signals from the two sensors, position sensor and accelerometer. The signals of these two sensors control the flow of oil from the hydraulic pump of the tractor to the hydraulic cylinder to reduce the vertical movement of the operator’s seat.

Seat ActiveSeat John Deere used many features of the ComfortCommand seat, which is complemented by more hardness regulator. The controller stiffness is located in the left armrest and is a replacement lever damping shock seat suspension on the right side of the front panel of the management bodies ComfortCommand.

The hardness regulator has three positions: plus, minus, and middle position. These three positions provide three levels of stiffness.

  • The position of the “plus” provides the highest level of stiffness. In this position, the operator feels the increasing influence of tractor movements (more coarse movement).
  • In the “minus” is a minimum rigidity at which the is minimal impact to the operator from displacement of the tractor that corresponds to the maximum level of comfort.
  • The middle position is a compromise between the settings “plus” (+) and minus (-).

Also offers leather seat ActiveSeat heated for improved comfort and ease of cleaning. For cases where operating speed is not limited by equipment, ActiveSeat allows to increase the travel speed on the field and increases overall comfort and performance.

System ActiveCommand steering (ACS™) provides a robust and comprehensive steering system

John Deere has developed one of the most robust and comprehensive steering system in the industry — ACS. In the field or on the road, ACS reduces effort required for steering, thus reducing operator fatigue and increase level of comfort and machine control.

Here are four key features of the ACS system:

Dynamic departure of the wheels on the road:
  • Gyro determines the heading angle of the tractor and automatically slightly adjusts steering to deliver an exceptional ability to keep the car on course. Take a drive down a bumpy road and check out how much easier it is using ACS to keep the tractor on course, even on rough terrain. ASC provides unparalleled comfort.
  • ACS prevents excessive understeer, when the front of the car suddenly an obstacle appears and the steering should quickly respond to the actions of the operator.
Steering with variable gear ratio:
  • Approximately 3.5 turn steering wheel from lock to lock at speeds of working in the field, allowing you to make a quick turn on the field.
  • Approximately 5 turns of the steering wheel from lock-to-lock at transport speeds, improving the ability to keep the car on course.
The ability to avoid deviation of the steering wheel:
  • Thanks to the electronic control system ACS it is possible to avoid deviation of the steering wheel.
Steering with variable force:
  • The steering wheel resistance automatically changes according to the running speed. Thus a little effort is required at lower speeds during turns in the field, and more torque steering at speeds of transport that provides comfort and facilitates the retention of the machine on the line chart.
A fault tolerant system

The ACS system fault-tolerant. This means that the steering retains all the functions in case of failure of any one element. John Deere has done everything possible to give the operator the ability to control the tractor, if there is a malfunction in the steering system.

For example, if there is a failure of the main controller will be involved additional. Upon failure of the supply from the generator control is supported by the battery. If the engine stops operating and the flow of hydraulic oil in the system is not possible, the oil is supplied backup electric pump.

The ACS system consists of several key components:

  • Gyroscope: is used to measure the yaw rate of the tractor during transport speeds.
  • Position sensors: these sensors simply measure the angle of rotation of the wheels of the tractor.
  • Power supply: distributes power from the battery and generator in the ACS system.
  • The position sensors and the steering device haptic feedback: position sensors in the steering wheel and brake, which raises or lowers the resistance to rotation of the steering wheel depending on the speed of the tractor. Less feedback is needed during normal operation in the field, a little big — during transport, and when the tractor turns at high speed.
  • Controllers: two controllers located on the rear side are the “brain” of the system.
  • Control valves: also known as a steering valve, used to control the tractor.
  • Backup electric pump: this pump supplies oil to the steering system, brakes and Parking brake (for towing) in the case of insufficient oil flow to the steering control and the brakes.
The value of ACS
  • Fewer rotations from lock to lock: 3.5 turning from lock to lock in the field for quick turn and 5 turns from lock to lock when driving at a speed of transport to facilitate retention of the machine on the line chart.
  • Avoids recoil and deviation of the steering wheel.
  • Reduces the effort required for steering, thus reducing operator fatigue.
  • A smaller diameter wheel provides a level of comfort and improves visibility.
  • Supports the mechanic feeling of the system with a conventional steering column.
  • Full integration with the management system AutoTrac™.
  • Compatible with tractors with articulated and with light-conductor front axles.
  • Compatible with wide and narrow tires.

Documentation of field borders

Creating field boundaries manually by using the CommandCenter 4th generation or import existing information on the borders with the GreenStar 3 (GS3) 2630 display or from the Center of operations of John Deere. Data documenting the CommandCenter 4th generation can be used to create borders on the basis of the treated area. In addition, borders can be created in the operations Center, John Deere based on the data documentation.

Display streamlines the process of documenting boundaries. It allows you to create external and internal boundaries in a single pass over the outer contour of the field with a light coating, which simplifies the procedure and reduces the number of actions. Operators can remove internal boundaries, without affecting the external or the reversal of the strip. In addition, they can disable the border when working with system Control Section, while continuing to use their tool Field Locator (locator Field) and documentation systems.

Border turning lanes, you can also quickly create, putting distance or the number of passes from the outer boundary.

Creating boundaries taking into account the treated area
The creation of the reversal of the strip

Boundaries can be imported from the following sources:

  • The operations center John Deere
  • Directly from a GS3 2630 display or other display 4th generation
  • Software from APEX or other information system for management (FMIS), exporting data to the GS3 2630 display format (contact your John Deere dealer to learn about the availability of APEX country-specific)
