John Deere released new four-cylinder 5E and 5ML Series Tractors.
“We’ve taken our popular, market-proven 5 Series Utility Tractor lineup and added new models that make it even easier to perform more jobs on the property or around the farm, ranch or orchard,” says Brad Aldridge, 5 Series product marketing manager for John Deere. “These versatile 5E and 5ML Tractors combine durability with value and are the perfect choice for many types of customers.”
The four-cylinder 5E Series Tractors are built for livestock feeding, haying operations, roadside mowing and property maintenance. The two 5ML models are low-profile machines that work for orchards, livestock barns and other environments with restricted heights.
5E Series Tractors
Available in 85 and 100 engine horsepower, the 5085E and 5100E are powered by John Deere PowerTech 4045 diesel engines that meet Final Tier Four emission standards. The tractors are able to lift more than 3,200 pounds rear-lift capacity and more than 3,500 pounds at full front loader height.
Operators can shift from low to high at the touch of a button and the economy PTO lets operators reduce engine rpm to 1,700. The new sloping hood and raised operator platform on cab models offer 3.6 feet of extra visibility in front of the tractor.
“Although performance is the bottom line, we also made a number of ergonomic improvements to promote easier, smoother operation,” Aldridge adds. “Other design features make the 5E easier to maintain, which maximizes uptime.”
Design changes to the control pod and instrument panel provide easier monitoring and operating control. The operator has more information available on a single screen that includes warning lights, ground speed, PTO speed, PTO target bar, PowrReverser position, hour meter, hi/lo indicator and diagnostic codes.
Low-Profile 5ML Tractors
John Deere is bringing out new 5ML Tractors designed for working in low clearance and tight spaces such as poultry barns and orchards.
“The 5ML Tractors are available in two models, the 100 engine horsepower 5100ML and 115 horsepower 5115ML,” says Ruben Peña, senior marketing representative, John Deere Augusta. “These low-profile M machines feature an open operator station, low-profile seat and ROPS, and sloping hood for improved visibility when operating under trees and in low buildings.”
The 5ML models come standard with rugged, Final Tier 4 compliant John Deere PowerTech engines that automatically perform regeneration for maximum uptime and offer significant cost of ownership advantages over competitive models. They also come with a mechanical hitch and two transmission options: the 16F/16R or 32F/16R PowrReverser™ for easy, clutch-free forward and reverse operations.
Other features include a new backlit LCD instrument panel, two rear work lights, and new charge air engine cooler and hydraulic oil cooler packages. Factory-installed options include fuel tank guards and an SCV oil spillage collection system.
