AFS Harvest Command

High-Efficiency Harvest

Using exclusive, patented technology, AFS Harvest Command proactively adjusts the combine as crop conditions change for corn, soybeans, canola, barley, wheat and rice. Choose from one of four levels of automation, and with 16 sensors throughout the machine, AFS Harvest Command controls seven combine adjustments to achieve the productivity of an expert operator.

  • Find Your Perfect Flow

    Choose the mode of automation to match your harvesting goals. Then, set the crop type, maximum operating speed and power limits, and AFS Harvest Command takes over from there.

    • Performance Mode: Achieve maximum grain savings and grain quality while optimizing throughput. This is the most common mode of automation, used when the harvest is progressing well, conditions are nearly ideal, no weather threats are looming.
    • Grain Quality Mode: Achieve maximum grain quality in the tank while saving grain and optimizing throughput. This mode is designed for when your goal is to deliver the highest-quality grain possible and minimize cracked and broken kernels.
    • Max Throughput Mode: Maximize throughput, save grain and maintain a quality sample. This mode is ideal for tight harvest windows and weather limitations to maximize the acres without sacrificing grain loss or quality.
    • Fixed Throughput Mode: Fix the machine throughput, save grain and maintain a quality sample. This mode is ideal when you’re under limiting operating conditions (e.g. trucking schedules or drying limitations) to maintain a target throughput to match your infrastructure.
  • Simplify Harvest With Optimized Controls

    Fine-tuning harvest settings and adjustments can test even the most experienced operator. AFS Harvest Command helps refine the harvesting process by reducing the number of functions you need to monitor in the cab from twelve to three. You control concave clearance, header position and grain tank unload and AFS Harvest Command takes care of the rest.

    As grain moves through the combine, the automation system adjusts upper sieve opening, lower sieve opening, pre-sieve opening, cleaning fan rpm, rotor vane angle, rotor rpm and ground speed.

    Fewer functions to monitor means fewer chances for error and less operator fatigue.
