The gathering chain consists of a two-stage, four-strand system that smoothly feeds the cylinder at the same angle regardless of the header height. The lowered rear feed floor and the longer feed house allow for a higher grain flow rate. The Natural Flow system keeps material moving uninterrupted from the front of the machine to the rear with a transverse rotor in the Tritura processor.

The Gleaner combine's exclusive transverse fan system uses a two-stage cleaning process to more efficiently sift and remove the chaff keeping the grain cleaner than competitors' models. The company designs all of its combines with a low center of gravity, heavy final drives and welded frames to give its machines the highest bin capacities of any class 6, 7 or 8 combines in the industry.

The two-auger Direct Flow design has a transfer angle of 29 degrees instead of the industry-standard three or more auger systems that require a 90-degree turn. This reduces component wear and provides better quality grain while using less horsepower and reducing fuel consumption.
