Over 9 decades the Gleaner combine has become known for its unique design and performance and many of those unique attributes remain in the S8 Super Series combine. The Gleaner performance comes from the combination of our own patented processes and components with a design unlike any of our competitors.

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.
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.
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).

"S8 Series Feature Preview"
Gleaner is continually improving our combines in capacity and efficiency as we react to the ever changing crop dynamics that are occurring due to increased yields, weather, and increasing harvest acreage. In this feature preview you will learn about how Gleaner has increased cleaning shoe capacity to harvest more in high moisture corn and other high density crops, as more farmers are taking the corn out earlier due to contracts and the increased acreage. You will also hear about the new Ag Leader® ready option now available as an alternative to our FieldStar II™ yield monitor and mapping system. The Ag Leader system will provide a live map and hybrid mapping as well, through the Integra® or Versa™ display that you will purchase from your Ag Leader dealer.Watch Video
