Perforated Cascade Pan

As crop dynamics have changed, farmers are harvesting more acres of higher-moisture, higher-yield corn and other high-density crops. The 2015 Gleaner S8 Series combine has increased shoe capacity by opening up the cascade pan, resulting in an entirely pneumatic shoe area with a 12.8% increase in measurable shoe area.

DuraGuard™ Two-Speed Rotor Gearbox

All S8 Series models feature a heavy-duty DuraGuard™ two-speed rotor gearbox with larger sheave, bearings, and belt built for the higher demands of the S88 machine. It features a wide overlap on rotor speeds and lets operators run on the high side of the low range in many crop conditions for maximum efficiency.

XR™ Two-Speed Hydro Transmission

All S8 Series models feature an optional XR™ two-speed hydro feature that provides greater climbing ability on hills and the convenience of on-the-go shifts. The two-speed on-the-go shift is operated by a convenient push button from the right hand console (low position provides 30% more torque, high position provides 30% faster ground speed).
