John Deere: New US-built 5M tractor range unveiled


PROMOTIONAL FEATURE | 4 SEPTEMBER 2014

Farmers in South Africa recently managed to get a sneak preview of the new John Deere 5M series tractors. The demonstration took place on Eddie and Dieter Schulz's farm Botfeld, near the Noodsberg sugar mill at Dalton.

With enough hydraulic capacity to handle big implements, the 5M series utility tractors are designed for long hours in heavy duty applications.

In common with other new John Deere series, the model names reflect the engine horsepower. For example, the 5085M produces 85hp (63kW).

The basic model has features that put it well beyond 'basic' when it comes to operator comfort and convenience: a hydraulically dampened seat to smooth out rough terrain, a fully adjustable steering wheel and well-positioned controls. These are to the right and out of the way, yet within easy reach.

The 16/16 transmission on all three 5M series tractors comes with the convenience of the no-clutch, electro-hydraulic PowerReverser shuttle shifter. This is ideal for jobs that involve frequent changes of direction, such as front loading. All three 5M models are equipped with a wet traction clutch.

The top-of-the-range 5105M is powered by a 78kW common rail fuel engine. This displayed impressive performance, pulling the JohnDeere 975 reversible plough – hardly the lightest of loads – at a good depth and a respectable speed.
