Sealed maintenance-free bearings improve productivity
  • John Deere Implement DetectionJohn Deere Implement Detection

    With John Deere Implement Detection, all of the settings used from the previous year or the factory-installed settings on new machines will automatically enter into the GreenStar 3 2630 Display simply by connecting the implement to the tractor. This technology eliminates the need to spend time taking measurements and trying to remember how the implement was setup last year.

  • When an implement with Implement Detection is connected to a tractor utilizing a GreenStar 3 2630, a notification will be populated informing the operator that an implement is now on the CAN Bus. The one-page notification will indicate the implement's name, connection type, and other settings saved to the implement controller.

    The notification will address each individual setting showing the operator whether the implement settings successfully transferred to the 2630 or not. From this notification, users have the option to accept settings and move to the run page, or they can select the Equipment soft key that takes them to the equipment setup page so they can make adjustments to implement settings if necessary.

    All changes to implement settings will override previous settings and will be stored to the controller. If the implement is moved between tractors or displays switched, the implement settings are automatically sent to the display once the ISO connector is reconnected.

    John Deere Implement Detection provides a Green-on-Green advantage that addresses the single-most frustrating issue in the world of precision agriculture today - usability. Implement Detection will allow John Deere precision technology users to spend more time working and less time setting up their equipment. Enhancements such as this also begin to eliminate the mistakes made by operators in the field as well as reduce the dependence on others to help get the equipment setup like it was the prior year.

    Producers with non-John Deere implements can still see the benefits of John Deere Implement Detection when paired with a GreenStar 3 2630 Display and an independent Implement Detection controller. John Deere Implement Detection is designed to be paired with equipment not currently utilizing a controller; such equipment includes tillage implements, planter/seeders, dry-box fertilizer spreaders and sprayers.

    NOTE: Implement Detection is not compatible with AccuDepth™.

Unique blade configuration on 185-mm (7.25-in.) spacing optimizes one pass sizing and mixing
  • John Deere's 2623VT comes equipped on 185-mm (7.25-in.) spacing with solid shallow concavity spherical blades on the front gang and solid shallow concavity wavy blades on rear gang to size residue and mix soil.

    A majority of the sizing is going to be done by the front gang and the rear gang is going to do the mixing. John Deere designed its vertical tillage tool to chop stalks to an acceptable size and begin soil mixing for breakdown, yet leave a considerable amount of residue on the cover.

    The 2623VT comes equipped with 185-mm (7.25-in.) spacing on the front and rear gang. Both blade sizes on front and rear gang are 560 mm x 5 mm (22 in. x 0.197 in.). Optional 560-mm x 6.5-mm (22-in. x 0.256-in.) blades are available on front gang only.

      Sealed maintenance-free bearings (bottom view)

    John Deere’s 2623VT Vertical Tillage tool features a sealed maintenance-free bearing. A high-density polymer liner allows the bearing to dynamically align the shaft in rough field conditions. The bearing and high-density polymer liner sit inside a cast housing. This cast housing was designed for strength and reliability as well as a built-in bearing wear guard.

    These new bearings increase productivity by reducing the amount of time needed to service the tool before operation and allowing customers to spend more time in the field.

Active hydraulic rolling baskets create ideal seedbed
    • Residue management

      Residue management

    Whether the plan is to use the 2623VT in the spring or fall, this machine was designed to handle any residue management situation. With a 21-degree angle on the front gang and 19-degree gang angle on the rear, this tool was created to have the aggressive sizing and chopping ability in tough residue in the fall and to have the finishing characteristics to build an ideal seedbed in the spring.

    • Shallow gang angle

      Shallow gang angle

    • Aggressive gang angle

      Aggressive gang angle

    Shallow gang angle vertical tillage tools can leave a wavy, washboard effect unsuitable for a proper seedbed. The 2623VT implement has an aggressive gang angle to help anchor residue, manage weeds and root balls, and create an even, smooth seedbed under the topsoil.

  • As crop yields increase, so does the amount of residue after harvest. The John Deere 2623VT allows customers to prepare soil for planting in the spring and residue management in the fall.

    Utilize the residue calculator to identity the optimal residue management solution to meet the customer’s needs.

Versatile design of gang angle manages residue in fall and spring conditions

      Hydraulic rolling basket - in raised position

    The 2623VT offers an active hydraulic rolling baskets that give the operator wide-ranging adjustability for a variety of conditions. The drawbars and rolling basket on the rear harrow are built with strength in mind for the demanding vertical tillage conditions.

  • The system was designed to have the ability to run the rolling baskets in three different positions:

    • Raised
      • Allows the operator to raise the rolling baskets in harsh, muddy conditions
    • Float
      • Allows the operator to float the rolling baskets to lightly fluff soil
    • Apply down pressure
      • Allows the operator to adjust the basket pressure to provide consistent contact with the ground
      • Provides a firm seedbed
      • Shatters root balls

    The hydraulic rolling basket is offered with round bar or flat bar. Flat bar is not recommended for rocky conditions.

    • Maintenance-free bearing in rolling basket

    With these rolling baskets, a cast frame was designed to encase the bearing in a high-density polymer liner to allow dynamic movement and maintenance-free characteristics. Similar to the gangs on the 2623VT, the active hydraulic rolling baskets feature maintenance-free bearings to minimize non-productive activities.
