Utility tractors ranging from 45 to 105 engine horsepower have many uses for property owners, commercial operators, governmental maintenance fleets, and livestock and farm operations. To better serve the diverse requirements of these different type customers, John Deere introduced a new line of utility tractors: the 5D, 5E, 5E Limited and 5M Series. These new tractors are designed to perform any application, with any implement, within any budget to meet the needs of any customer in the utility tractor market.
“This is the most complete line of utility tractors we’ve ever offered,” said Rex Edmunds, division marketing manager, John Deere Augusta. “We’ve designed these tractors to meet the requirements of many different customers with many different applications, and we’re providing a wide array of options to bring the optimal configuration and horsepower to their operation.”
The 5D and 5E Series range in horsepower from 45 to 75 and offer John Deere reliability and durability at very economical prices. The 5D Series is only offered with a two-wheel-drive (2WD) axle compared to the 5E which offers 2WD or mechanical-front-wheel-drive (MFWD) configurations. These open station tractors feature synchronized transmissions designed for smooth shifting and easy-to-reach, color-coded controls for simple operation. Low on the frills and price, but high on durability and performance, these tractors provide a simple, economical solution that’s just right for many customers.
“The more powerful 5E Limited Series Tractors range in horsepower from 83 to 101 engine hp. These units have more deluxe features including a cab, PowerReverser transmission, wet traction clutch, and MFWD axle – all in base equipment,” explained Edmunds. “We’ve packaged the 5E Limited Series to offer select performance and comfort- enhancing features at a very low price.”
The 5M Series Tractors range in horsepower from 65 to 105 engine hp. These higher-end machines feature new transmissions, increased lift capacities, more stability for larger implements, and a new operator environment for increased comfort and productivity.
“For customers who demand premium performance and comfort , the 5M Series, which ranges in engine horsepower from 65 to 105, is designed to be the benchmark for quality and durability in the utility tractor marketplace. These tractors offer a vast array of options and horsepower levels, with exceptional hydraulic capacities to handle any utility- tractor implement. These tractors will definitely bring more productivity to the farm or jobsite, which makes them ideal for customers who spend many hours in a tractor and depend on their tractor to help make their living.” said Edmunds. “With more weight, a wet clutch design, and enhanced serviceability, these tractors provide dependable service for the tough jobs they’re built to handle.”
More features and options including cab, 2WD and MFWD, more hydraulic flow and capacity, and a durable frame specifically designed for loaders, ensure that this tractor will perform for many years on the job or in the field.
“All 5 Series T ractors can be matched up with an array of implements offered by John Deere and Frontier Equipment,” siad Edmunds. “This is our broadest range of utility tractors and implements to date, thus giving us our best ability ever to effectively meet customers’ needs. We encourage everyone to visit their local John Deere dealer to see the diverse line-up of new tractors, ask for a demonstration, and find the machine that best matches the requirements of their job or operation.
