the new X9

X Series Combines


Up to 7,200 bushels per hour2 in high-yielding corn

When you need maximum productivity for maximum profitability, you need an X9 Combine. These rugged combines deliver an average of 45% more harvesting capacity across all crop types, with no sacrifice in grain quality – all while using 20% less fuel1. The X9 1100 can harvest up to 30 acres an hour in wheat: in high-yielding corn it delivers up to 7,200 bushels (253,721 liters) per hour2, which means you can fill up to 7 semi-trailers per hour.3

Predictive Ground Speed Automation

The optional Ultimate Technology Package includes Predictive Ground Speed Automation. Using two forward, cab-mounted stereo cameras, the X9 constantly measures crop height and volume – while pre-harvest satellite field images generate a predictive field map. The combine takes this data and automatically adjusts ground speed BEFORE entering changing crop areas. Feel confident to maintain peak feed rates all day long, even in inconsistent crop conditions. That helps you increase combine capacity while minimizing grain loss.

Harvest Settings Automation

Harvest Settings Automation – included in the Premium and Ultimate Technology Packages – makes it easier than ever to set the specific outcomes you expect. Using your G5Plus Display, simply set acceptable limits for grain loss, foreign material, and broken grain. Once set, the combine automatically adjusts itself to deliver the performance you want. No more manually adjusting rotor speed, fan speed, and concave, chaffer, and sieve clearances. The combine does it for you according to outcomes you’ve already prescribed. That gets you into crops faster and reduces the things you have to constantly monitor.

Bigger on the inside

Even with 45% more threshing area4, and 80% more separating area4, the outside dimensions are about the same as the S7 900, for tight turns and narrow transport.

20% less fuel1

It's not just the engine that delivers lower fuel costs, it's every aspect of the design. The belts, transmission, residue system, rotors, and lower RPM all play a role in saving you money on fuel.
