More versatility with the dry spinner spreader

New Leader® Dry Spinner Spreader

The F4365 uses an industry-proven New Leader Dry Spinner Spreader. This 4.27-m (14-ft) long dry box is capable of holding 9.34 m3 (330 ft³) of product and is available in multiple configurations to meet a variety of application needs. Depending on the product, spread widths can range from 18.29 to 27.43 m (60 to 90 ft).

Single bin option
Single bin option 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.

MultApplier insert
Two-bin MultApplier insert Two-bin MultApplier insert

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.

MultiBin insert
Four-bin MultiBin insert Four-bin MultiBin 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.

The divider separating the two micronutrient bins on the rear can also be removed to make one large micronutrient bin. Standard rate metering rollers come in base with the MultiBin insert. A pneumatically controlled lid covers the micronutrient bin(s) opening and is operated in the Generation 4 CommandCenter™ display.

Generation 4 CommandCenter™ display with SpreadStar™ system

Run screen Run screen

The F4365 is utilizing the 4600 CommandCenter display that is also found in large tractors today. The CommandARM™ controls, Generator 4 CommandCenter display and SpreadStar have been updated and tailored to the needs of operators allowing them to see all key functions on one run screen including AutoTrac™ assisted steering system, variable rate documentation, field totals, and dry spinner spreader settings. Click anywhere on the display to expand and easily adjust information.

Work setup Work setup

To prepare for field application, simply press the Setup button in the bottom left corner of the display run page, and it will direct the user to the Work Setup window.

  1. Select the Location box to setup user information including farm, field, and client. User information is not required to load and execute a variable-rate prescription.
  2. Select the Equipment box to do the initial setup of the machine including the number of bins in the dry spinner spreader.
  3. The Work Summary box shows a link for each bin in the dry spinner spreader. The screenshot above is for a two-bin dry box. Select each one to input or change the name of the product that will be applied. Twenty-four unique names can be entered into the display for various product types such as single product, blended product, or multi-product variable rate. The user can also choose the target rate for spreading or load a variable-rate prescription. 
SpreadStar SpreadStar

Once the Work Setup Window is complete, the updated SpreadStar application can then be used to input and setup the following:

Target spread rate Target spread rate
Bin details Bin details

Target spread rate – selecting the target rate box allows the operator to quickly adjust three different target rates or load a prescription if needed. The target rates can be adjusted when spreading by using the corresponding buttons on the CommandARM.

Product density/product applied – selecting either of these areas will take the user to a bin details page where more frequent dry spinner spreader inputs and adjustments are made. For dry spinner spreaders with multiple bins, individual tabs at the top of the screen make it easy to quickly toggle between them.

Features on the bin details page include:

  • Bin on/off
  • Bin chaining (not shown)
  • Product density
  • CFR value
  • Feed gate opening
  • Bin alarms
  • Resetting bin counter
  • Belt prime
  • Tarp control
  • Chain oiler
Spinner Settings
Spinner settings Spinner settings

The last step is to setup the spinner settings by clicking on the spinner settings box in the SpreadStar application.  The Add Spinner preset window will come up allowing the operator to create a new preset if they choose.

Preset functions include:

  • Spinner target speed
  • Spinner target speed alarms
  • Spread width
  • Fan frame setting

The bin details and spinner settings are saved with the Work Summary details. For example, an operator with a two-bin dry spreader may need to change between a two product variable-rate to a single blend application using bin chaining. When the operator switches back to two product variable rate, SpreadStar will automatically remember the bin details and spinner settings that were last used with that configuration.

Even with this feature, it is still important to calibrate the dry spinner spreader when changing products to ensure an accurate and consistent spread pattern.


Improved machine performance equals more productivity

Engine and transmission
9-L PowerTech™ engine 9-L PowerTech™ engine
Infinitely Variable Transmission (IVT™) Infinitely Variable Transmission (IVT™)

The F4365 uses an industry-proven 9-L PowerTech engine combined with an IVT to provide maximum power and efficiency.

The 9-L (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 Tractor Family, but has been modified for higher field and transport speeds. 

Applicator field and transport speeds
F4365 spreading in the field F4365 spreading in the field
F4365 in transport F4365 in transport

The F4365 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.


Fuel filling Fuel filling

To ensure the F4365 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.

Superior ride quality with dual c-channel chassis design

Dual c-channel chassis Dual c-channel chassis

The F4365 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 will flex and absorb some of the impact loads instead of transferring it to the rest of the machine including the operator.

Rear axle Rear axle

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.

Front axle leaf spring Front axle leaf spring
Rear axle leaf spring Rear axle leaf spring

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 F4365 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. Reducing vibration improves productivity by reducing operator fatigue and decreasing the potential for failures caused by them.

Storage compartment
External storage compartment External storage compartment

An external storage compartment is located on the left-hand side of the machine and can be used to store important items nearby, but outside the cab:

  • Personal protective equipment (PPE), such as gloves, goggles, face shield, apron, and emergency clothing
  • Grease gun
  • Density check tool
  • Tools
Hydraulic folding ladder
Hydraulic folding ladder Hydraulic folding ladder

Operators will climb into the F4365 via a hydraulically controlled front ladder similar to 4 Series Sprayers. When the machine starts to move, the ladder will automatically fold 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
