The Gleaner S8 combine harvester features a four-strand front conveyor chain that optimizes capacity for quick release of crop to the rear feed conveyor. A Natural Flow transverse rotor keeps the movement of crop mat in a straight direction. The distribution augers allows for even distribution of crops, while accelerator rolls increase the crop descent speed. The combine’s transverse fan offers a two-stage cleaning process that results in greater cleaning efficiency.

The S8 SmartCooling system automatically adjusts the amount of cooling with better utilization of horsepower. Gleaner also offers optional features for S8 combines, including the Auto-Glide 3000 guidance system, NightSight lighting, an XR two-speed hydro transmission and the AgCam camera system.

The Gleaner S9 combine features an electronically-shifted, four-speed transmission and a four-strand HB-section Opti-Belt.
