The new 5E Series Tractor line from John Deerenow includes the new 85 and 100 horsepower 4-cylinder tractors, which replace the previous 83, 93 and 101 hpr models, and four 3-cylinder models ranging for 45 to 75 hp.
The new 5085E and 5100E feature Interim Tier 4 emissions-compliant PowerTech diesel engines with the 12 Forward/12 Reverse PowrReverser Transmission and 540/540 Economy PTO in base equipment. They can be ordered with either an ergonomic, climate-controlled cab or with an open operator station, which was an option not previously available on the larger 5E models.
The electrohydraulic PowrReverser Transmission with 12 forward and 12 reverse gears makes back and forth chores like loader and blading work easier. With the PowrReverser Transmission, the operator does not have to clutch or even slow down to go from forward to reverse.
540 Economy PTO comes standard on all PowrReverser-equipped models to reduce engine noise, wear, and vibration when using powered implements.
Scott Schadler, product marketing manager for the 5 Family Tractors for the U.S. and Canada, says the updated John Deere 5E Series offers rural property owners, livestock producers and commercial customers more comfort, performance and versatility than any other utility tractor in its class.
Beyond the new options, Schadler says the best thing about the 5E Series Utility Tractors is their affordable price. “These utility tractors have been designed and built for value and to provide years of reliable performance to customers in a wide variety of markets, including the farm, ranch, commercial and property owner segments.”
