John Deere upgrades utility tractor performance with 5E, 5ML models

John Deere says its new four-cylinder 5E and 5ML series tractors pack a lot of heavy-duty power and versatility for utility tractors of their size.

The new four-cylinder 5E series tractors are built for many applications including livestock feeding, haying operations, roadside mowing, and property maintenance.

The two new 5ML models are low-profile machines good for work in orchards, livestock barns, and other environments with restricted heights.

The new four-cylinder 5Es feature heavy-duty frames, axles, engines, and transmission to deliver greater performance and value. 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.

This engine gives tractors the muscle to lift more than 3,200 pounds rear-lift capacity and more than 3,500 pounds at full front loader height.

The durable 24/12 PowrReverser transmission in these machines increases top transport speed by one-third so operators can do more in less time. Operators can shift from low to high at the touch of a button, without even needing to clutch.

The economy PTO, standard on all 5E four-cylinder transmissions, allows operators reduce engine rpm to 1,700, which can lower fuel consumption by as much as 20 percent.

John Deere is bringing out the new 5ML Tractors designed for working in low clearance and tight spaces including poultry barns and orchards.

The company says the 5ML tractors are available in two models, the 100 engine horsepower 5100ML and 115 horsepower 5115ML. The 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.  

The 5ML comes with a mechanical hitch and two transmission options: the 16F/16R or 32F/16R PowrReverser for easy, clutch-free forward and reverse operations. They are designed with plenty of hydraulic power to handle a wide variety of implements and excellent drawbar visibility for ease of operation.
