John Deere S790 issues

Post by farmerthinking » Sat Dec 01, 2018 2:07 pm

PC
John Deere S790
The 645 FD header drops too low to the ground raising the combine off the ground and losing traction - as a result, the combine harvester gets stuck rendering it unusable. This is very disappointing and unacceptable, how did no one pick up on this issue during game development? Didn't you guys build the Felsbrunn map? And where is the corn header for this combine - there is none listed as such in the purchasing menu. Another weird thing is the way the steering wheel looks leveled to the seat's bottom when looking down at it. Also the back window isn't covered properly when the tank is full of grain. I will not say anything on this post about the lack of traction that all harvesters are experiencing or the fact that sometimes the combines can't be folded or the broken auger lights. *thumbsdown*

The S790 and 645SD work pretty well for me, at least with the latest patch. However, it does pull to the right very consistently, so it may still be dragging a bit somewhere.

Now that you mention it, though, I did notice the steering wheel orientation, too. I wonder if that is related to mine wanting to make great, big, slow circles? :confusednew:

Update: on Felsbrunn still, on filed 12 and 13 there are rows at the edge of the fields where the combine with this header will not cut the crop, it will only bend the crop and go over it. I have to mention that all header related issues are observed while operating the combine miself not by observing a hired worker.

I have noticed that the head is not perfectly straight when attached. Take a look when you connect the corn header for example....the header slightly slants down to one side when looking at it head on. I wonder if this is related.

I noticed that too, in Giant's defense, this is a flex draper header after all but something tells me this is not intended.

The John Deere writing on the screen is floating, not attached to the bezel. So you can imagine how it looks when the seat goes up and down while the writing stays in place.

The two round mirrors are there so the operator can see how full the tank is through the two windows placed on the front of the tank's covers.

On Xbox, the chaff spreader doesn't move when selecting spread or swath. Also there isn't a trailer hitch for me on it, but the other combines have one.

I got a question that is not related to a bug but could be, who in their right mind would choose a white interior for an agricultural equipment?

While harvesting soy (may not only be limited to this crop) with the 645 FD header, the cut crop can be seen moving through the back side of the header (clipping) as they are transported towards the center of the header into the feeder housing.

A number of the combines have issues with traction and headers dragging at the moment. (The CR10.90 is awful on hilly fields.) That said, the S790 and 645SD work relatively well by comparison. However, I have noticed that this setup perpetually turns to the right! So I have to constantly correct with left steering. I had not noticed that the header doesn’t attach level, but I did have a suspicion that the header was dragging on one side while working. I’ll have too see if the drooping side corresponds to the steering drift...

Also anyone noticed the work light on the pipe does not work and have found that can use combine ok looses traction but then it won't fold away once I have completed a field on either keyboard or g27 and I'm on the latest patch

Work light has been reported and complained about repeatedly. (The search function is useful for figuring out what has and hasn’t been reported.). As for folding, I replied to your other post, but the only time I’ve had it “stuck” was when I tried to fold the unloading auger and the top cover at the same time. If I fold the auger first and let it finish, the harvester seems to fold fine.
