John Deere is launching new tractors in its 5R series, which it describes as nimble tractors for small and medium agricultural operations.

The company says the new tractors were designed with the strength of the previous 5R models in mind, to maintain a high level of comfort, compactness and performance.

The new tractors – the 5090R (90hp), 5100R (100hp), 5115R (115hp) and 5125R (125hp) – are all equipped with Stage IIIB/Interim Tier 4 compliant 4.5-litre John Deere PowerTech PWX engines.

Additionally, each tractor can deliver an extra 10hp for transport due to their Transport Management Systems.

With a 2.25m wheelbase, the new 5Rs have a one-piece curved frame design with a low centre of gravity to facilitate front loader installation, while maintaining a turning radius of 3.75m.

Transmission options include the entry-level 16/16 CommandQuad manual transmission,  with four ranges and four PowerShift gears in each range, the 16/16 CommandQuad, and the 32/16 Command8, with eight PowerShift gears and an eco-mode that enables a top speed of 40 km/h at 1759rpm.

"While all these transmissions offer a fully automatic clutch, individual start-up gears, individually settable speeds and an electric park lock, the premium level 32/16 Command8 also features an automatic shifting function as standard," John Deere says.

"The latter feature is also optionally available on the 16/16 CommandQuad transmission."

The 5R series also has the option to increase the lift capacity from 4.7 to 5.3 tonnes, as well as an option to upgrade the open-centre hydraulic system’s standard 96 litres-per-minute pump to a Pressure and Flow Compensated (PFC) 117 lpm version.

John Deere has also introduced a new 543R front loader, which offers an automatic mast and implement latch, a 10 per cent increase in lift capacity, higher breakout force and an increased roll-back angle.

New 5RN Series tractors, which feature a minimum width of 1.8m, a narrow cab, and mechanical front wheel drive, have also been revealed and are ideal for use with narrow-row crops and in vineyards.
