John Deere Enhances Utility Tractors with New Models

On Oct 12, 2015

John Deer has new four-cylinder series tractors that features versatility and heavy-duty power.  These are the 5E and 5ML series.  These new models are built for many applications such as mowing, property upkeep, livestock feeding and haying operations.  They are perfect for working in several restricted height areas such as orchards and livestock barns. 

Performance and Design

The 5E delivers greater performance because of its heavy-duty frames, axles, engines and transmission.  It is available in 85 and 100 engine horsepower.   These models contain the durable 24/12 PowrReverser™ transmission, which increases top transport speed by one-third, so operators can do more in less time.  Shifting from low to high is done with ease at the touch of a button without needing to clutch. Fuel consumption can be lowered up to 20 percent by reducing engine rpm to 1,700. 

Innovative design changes to the control pod and instrument panel make monitoring and operating easier. More information is available on a single screen compared to before, including warning lights, ground speed, PTO speed, PTO target bar, PowrReverser position, hour meter, hi/lo indicator and diagnostic codes. Routine maintenance is simple with a new slide-out condenser, radiator screen, tilting charge air cooler and slide-out oil cooler.

I have been working with Helton Industries on projects since 2007 and have found them to be very customer driven. They take the customer’s requirements and work diligently to solve them. I would highly recommend Helton Plastics.
