There was a lot of buzz a year ago when John Deere rolled its prototype four-track machine across the floor during a dealer introduction of new machines. Never mind that the new 9R/9RT lineup was introduced with significant features, the 9RX got its fair share of attention. Now the prototype becomes real and you can get up close and personal at the 2015 fall farm shows when the new 9RX will be unveiled to the public.
Jerry Griffith, division marketing manager, high-horsepower tractors, offers insight: " We've leveraged our learning from the past 20 years with our two-track systems. We took what we learned about the way we tension our belt systems, our alignment and our mid-roller technologies with our 8RT and 9RT and developed our four-track tractor."
And after you check out our in-depth look at the 9RX four-track machine, take a gander at all the other items John Deere launched during a special media event ahead of the 2015 fall farm shows to show off 2016 new products. The 9RX may create a lot of buzz, but there are new hay- and forage-making tools, enhancements to the S-Series combine (including a new 12-row folding corn head) and a key advancement in tillage - variable rate technology. And that's just a small sampling, so check out the gallery for more information.
