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.
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).
Gleaner S8 Super Series combines come standard with integrated FieldStar® II yield-monitoring systems. FieldStar II uses yield and moisture sensors, global positioning and the Advanced Technology Solutions C2100 to track yield data.
Gleaner offers the optional Auto-Guide 3000 guidance system, featuring a 72-channel navigation satellite receiver and a TopDock (with snap-in modules for upgrades) that comes from the factory set up for WAAS and OmniStar VBS signal. The system integrates Auto-Guide 3000 control into the C2100 terminal and eliminates the need for a separate screen in the cab.
Ag Leader® Ready Option
Gleaner offers an Ag Leader ready option that includes all wiring harnesses, Ag Leader yield sensor in the elevator head and the elevator mount kit, moisture sensor, speed module, terminal connection into the cab and everything you need to incorporate the Ag Leader displays into your Gleaner S8 combine
New on the S8 Super Series combines
Three new models (S68/S78/S88), including the first Class 8 transverse rotary platform in the world.
These new designs deliver the highest percentage of their rated horsepower to the separator among all combines. Their substantially lighter weight and balanced weight distribution mean minimal wasted horsepower as do reduced parasitics on key functional areas of the machine platform. The S88 represents the lightest and most efficient Class 8 platform available.
New AGCO Power engines
The S68 features a new twin turbocharged fuel-efficient, high-torque 8.4L AGCO Power engine delivering 322 rated horsepower and maximum boost horsepower of 398 horsepower.
New 230-gallon fuel capacity 8
All S8 models feature a new 230-gallon fuel tank, a 53% increase from S7 models, to keep you in the field longer between fill-ups for more productivity
New DuraGuard two-speed rotor gearbox
All S8 models feature a newly designed 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 wider overlap on rotor speeds and lets operators run on the high side of the low range in many crop conditions for maximum efficiency. It also features reversing capability.
