Cotton Picker CP690

Cotton Picker CP690

One man, one machine … one industry. Regardless of whether you’re picking cotton or stripping it, non-stop harvesting is now industry-wide thanks to the all-new CS690 Cotton Stripper and the improved CP690 Cotton Picker, our replacement for the original non-stop harvester, the revolutionary 7760. First of its kind in stripper cotton country, the CS690 features 530 peak horsepower, a powerful cleaner offering 1,000-plus pounds-a-minute of rated throughput, and 10-percent more air system capacity versus its cotton stripper predecessor. Even better we’ve taken the baskets, boll buggies, tarps and more out of your operation, as well. We didn’t forget about owners of our original non-stop harvesting system. The upgraded CP690 raises the 7760’s harvest speed by five percent. Plus, we added a new CommandCenter touchscreen display for easier operation. Add in a new anti-slip regulation to give you superior traction control. Not to be missed, the CP690 showcases six-percent more horsepower to give you 590 hp at peak performance. The CP690 and CS690: fuel, labor, and machine savings that are unrivaled in the market – for the entire market.

Take into account the savings

Take a look in your machine shed. Now take a look at your ledger. Trying to find an area to help reduce some costs? Try this on for size: let’s nix those boll buggies, get rid of the module builders, and maybe sell off a couple of those tractors – or at the very least cut down on some machine hours. How’s that ledger looking now? Well, there’s more.

Let’s cut your labor force down to a mere fraction, lower your insurance premiums, and keep a ton of leftover fuel at the pump. Now check the ledger once more. Looking better? Good. Let’s keep going.

With the ability to harvest more efficiently in adverse conditions, such as high winds, you can get the crop out of the field in the optimal window more quickly and easily, allowing you to maintain the lint quality you demand. As we all know, higher lint quality means higher profits. There’s also less cotton loss in the field due to transfers from your basket machine to the boll buggy. And we’ve reduced transport loss to the gin yard, as well as loss from bad weather.

So when you take all these savings into account, John Deere Cotton Harvesters truly help put the ‘edge’ in your ledger.

When we say the CP690 is the ‘most powerful,’ we’re not kidding. You won’t find another cotton picker in the world sporting 590 peak horsepower – 560 hp nominal with 30 hp boost – that’s strong enough to get you through the toughest harvesting conditions, and then some. Best of all, it’s packed into a new 13.5L Tier 4 John Deere PowerTech™ PSS engine … an engine that’s as easy on your harvesting system as it is on the eco-system.

Add to that the fact that with the CP690 we’ve raised sync-speed harvest to 4.4 mph and bumped up scrapping speed to 5.3 mph. So with all this extra speed, you’ll still yield four bales an acre, yet finish sooner. If that’s not a win-win, then what is?

  • Improved non-stop round module harvesting with 4.4 mph max row unit sync speed
  • 13.5L Tier 4 engine with 590 peak horsepower
  • Next generation ProDrive™ with anti-slip regulation
  • New Premium LED lighting package
