Superior ride quality with dual c-channel chassis design
The 800R uses a dual c-channel frame design with leaf spring suspension to maximize ride quality and durability. The dual c-channel frame design is very strong, but it still allows the frame to flex. This is especially important when operating in rough field conditions at higher speeds because the frame flexes and absorbs some of the impact loads instead of transferring it to the rest of the machine including the operator.
Industry-proven AxleTech® axles are used on the front and rear and are designed to haul full loads of heavier-density products such as lime.
Parabolic leaf springs are used on the front axle in conjunction with dampers and offer an industry-best 102 mm (4 in.) of travel. Parabolic leaf springs have fewer leaves, which reduce internal friction allowing for easier compression and articulation.
Dual-rate leaf springs are used on the rear axle to ensure consistent ride quality regardless of how much product is in the box. The first smaller set of leaf springs is used when the box is empty. When the box is loaded, the first set of leaf springs fully engages and combines with the second larger set of leaf springs. This design helps the 800R drive and ride more consistently when applying in the field or in transport on the road.
The dual c-channel design, coupled with best-in-class suspension, helps absorb the impact loads and protects the operator and machine from harmful vibration. Less vibration improves productivity by reducing operator fatigue and decreasing the potential for failures caused by them.
The external storage compartment is triple the size of the F4365 machines. The storage box can be used to store important items nearby, but outside the cab:
HYDRAULIC FOLDING LADDER
Operators can climb into the 800R via a hydraulically controlled front ladder similar to 4 Series Sprayers. When the machine starts to move, the ladder automatically folds up. When the machine stops, the operator simply hits the ladder button on the CommandARM™ control center to unfold it.
CAB AND DRY SPINNER SPREADER PLATFORMS
This industry-exclusive feature allows the operator to safely exit the cab and walk back to the dry spinner spreader to help with tendering or do a product density check.
FRONT RETRIEVAL POINTS
If the machine gets stuck while operating in wet conditions, retrieval points are located on the front of the frame to assist in pulling the machine out.
FENDERS AND MUD FLAPS
Front and rear fenders protect the 800R from mud and debris when operating in the field. Large front fenders similar to those used on large row-crop tractors protect the front of the machine, even when turning. Rear mud flaps that are attached to the dry spinner spreader platforms on the right and left side provide excellent protection from debris thrown by the rear tires.
Keep operators fresh with Comfort and Convenience packages and Visibility packages
When staring down a string of 2,000-acre days, equipment isn’t the only thing that needs to be operating at peak performance – operators need to be at their best, too. That’s why John Deere put together a range of packages to give you just the right features to keep operators comfortable and efficient.
For corner-office comfort that can help make short work of the longest days, take a look at the Ultimate Comfort and Convenience package. The heated, ventilated ActiveSeat™ II seat isolates the operator from up to 90 percent of vertical movement and comes in leather with massage functions. The Ultimate package also provides a premium XM® ready sound system with subwoofer, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a refrigerator, and more.
ACTIVESEAT II SEAT PROVIDES A SMOOTHER RIDE
NOTE: The John Deere ActiveSeat II is only available in the Ultimate Comfort and Convenience package.
The John Deere Active Seat II utilizes an electrical control system to control the vertical seat top movement. The “active” control system minimizes vertical seat top acceleration by sensing vertical sprayer inputs and actively positioning the seat top to cancel those inputs. This results in a significantly smoother ride for the operator.
The system utilizes an electric motor on the center pivot working in parallel with an air spring. The purpose of the air spring is to support the operator while the electric motor dynamically positions the seat.
Two sensors are integrated into the seat suspension and are used for inputs into the electric motor control system. The accelerometer, which is integrated into the onboard control unit (ESU), measures seat top acceleration. The position sensor, mounted at the scissors hinge, measures vertical seat top position. The electronic controller uses these two signals in a control algorithm to determine the proper torque and motor speed commands to send to the electric motor to control vertical seat movement such that the vertical acceleration at the seat top is minimized.
The John Deere ActiveSeat II also has a ride firmness switch. The ride firmness switch is located on the left-hand armrest and replaces the suspension shock-dampening seat attenuation lever on the front right-hand side of the seat controls.
The ride firmness switch has three positions: plus, minus, and mid position. The three positions provide three different levels of seat performance:
The ActiveSeat II is heated and ventilated leather seat for increased comfort and easier cleaning. This is only available with the Ultimate Comfort and Convenience package. ActiveSeat II allows for increased overall comfort and productivity.
The leather seat includes massaging capability to alleviate operator fatigue.Right-hand seat swivel is 24 degrees to the left and 24 degrees to the right.

Improved machine performance equals more productivity
ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION
The 800R uses an industry-proven 9L (549-cu in.) PowerTech engine combined with an IVT to provide maximum power and efficiency. The 9L (549-cu in.) engine provides 272-kW (365-hp) rated horsepower and up to 298-kW (400-hp) peak horsepower when needed.
The IVT is common to the 8R Tractors but has been modified for higher field and transport speeds.
APPLICATOR FIELD AND TRANSPORT SPEED
The 800R can apply product up to 48 km/h (30 mph) in field and travel on the highway empty at speeds up to 74 km/h (46 mph). The engine and transmission are common to other product lines in John Deere which means service locations, service intervals, and parts are all common.
To ensure the 800R can run all day long, it comes equipped with a 567-L (150-gal.) fuel tank and 29.5-L (7.8-gal.) diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) tank located on the right side of the machine. The slender tank designs are attached to the dual c-channel frame, reducing the torque load the tanks can have on the frame when full. Both tanks can be easily filled from ground level.
Decrease machine complexity with the common hydraulic implement pump
On model year 2022 and newer machines, the common hydraulic implement pump for the 800R chassis decreases implement changeover time by more than 50 percent and decreases hydraulic line complexity with the bulkhead. The secondary implement pump that was previously required for liquid systems, air booms, and all MultiBin and MultApplier dry spinner spreader options is not common and comes factory installed. This change to the factory machine means the following benefits:
NOTE: The single bin configurations only requires one pump and are not capable of becoming combo machines. See the compatibility chart for more details.

Depending on the product, spread widths can range from 18.3 to 27.4 m (60 to 90 ft).
SINGLE BIN OPTION
The single bin option can be ordered in a 304 stainless steel or a 409 painted stainless steel. A removable end gate, inverted V, and electric oiler come in base. At 24 km/h (15 mph), the single bin can spread fertilizer at rates as high as 499 kg (1100 lb) per acre or spread lime at rates as high as 2994 kg (6600 lb) per acre.
A 2.1-m (7.0-ft) 304 stainless-steel MultApplier insert can be added to the single bin to spread two products at once. The MultApplier uses a belt over stainless-steel conveyor chain, so no oil is necessary. Simply remove the end gate of the single bin to install the MultApplier insert.
A 304 stainless-steel MultiBin insert can be added to the single bin to spread up to four products at once. In addition to the second large bin, two micronutrient bins are on the back of the MultiBin. Similar to the MultApplier insert, the MultiBin conveyor chain is belt over stainless-steel conveyor chain and does not require oil.
Improve application accuracy with the AB30 Air Boom
For ag service providers and large-scale producers, the AB30 Air Boom is available as an option for the 800R Floater. The AB30 Air Boom builds on the advantages of the 800R chassis with the addition of an 8.5-m3 (300-cu ft) dry box with dual-product capability and a 21.3-m (70-ft) wide boom.
Durability and uptime are extremely important to an ag retailer’s business. With the number of acres these machines need to cover each year and the varying weather conditions that can impact the schedule, increasing uptime is crucial to the profitability and success of the ag retailer. The AB30 Air Boom is designed to maximize uptime through improved performance, reliability, and operator comfort.
The air boom option allows operators to accurately apply dry fertilizer across a wide 21.3-m (70-ft) swath at speeds up to 48.3 km/h (30 mph), and at maximum rates up to 544.3 kg (1,200 lb) per acre at 16.1 km/h (10 mph). With its 8.5-m3 (300-cu ft) capacity dry box and dual-bin configuration, operators can simultaneously apply up to two products at variable rates to better meet crop nutrient needs with fewer passes over the field. Application accuracy is further improved with half-width section control.
The air distribution system features an efficient design that consistently delivers even air flow from the fan to the booms. The closed-loop speed control allows the fan to run independent of the motor speed, increasing efficiency. This design requires less power for the air system and diverts more engine power to the ground during acceleration and operation.
The electrical and hydraulic systems have been designed from the ground up with full integration into the 4600 CommandCenter™ Display for easier control and maintenance. The boom structure and supports have also been strengthened to extend the life of the booms regardless of the terrain.
To improve the reliability of the air distribution system, the fan oil cooler is mounted on the right side of the machine, exposing it to less dust and vibration while making it easier to maintain. A large screen was also added over the fan air intake to block residue and debris from entering the air system.
The front ladder provides easy access to the machine even when the booms are folded. During tendering, operators can quickly access the top of the dry box from the cab platform. Handrails can then be folded up on both sides of the dry box, allowing the operator to work more efficiently.
The 800R with the AB30 Air Boom improves the revenue potential for ag service providers by increasing machine productivity through greater durability and superior field performance.
