The John Deere 6,8-litre turbocharged Tier III PowerTech E engine is equipped with precision-engineered combustion components, a high-pressure common rail fuel-injection system, an efficient, heavy-duty PowerCore venturi type air filter, fuel pre-cooling, and a dual-stage, heavy-duty water separator.

These components are designed to optimise engine performance, ensuring maximum power delivery, fuel efficiency and durability in any demanding application, including heavy tillage, planting, spraying, spreading, hay-making and transport operations. What more, the 255ℓ fuel tank enables an operator to stay on the land all day long, optimising productivity.

Extended service hours, thanks to John Deere Plus 50 engine oil, further enhance operational efficiency while fully protecting the engine for long hours of operation. Easy access to service and maintenance points makes servicing of the engine quick and efficient.

The air-conditioned cab features a flat operator’s platform and comfortable seat, while the selective control valves and PTO controls are all conveniently located on the right-hand console. All of this ensures space, convenience and comfort during long working hours.

The 24F/12R TSS 40km/h transmission, equipped with Hi-Lo power shiftable gears, boasts a 15% increase in productivity and 13% greater fuel efficiency. Included with this transmission is the PowerReverser feature, which ensures comfortable travel direction changes, adding to the convenience, efficiency and speed of operations.

Important to highlight is the heavy-duty rear axle and three planetary final drives, which add to the robust overall frame design and allow for heavy loads and trouble-free operation in any heavy duty application. The heavy-duty mechanically actuated brake discs ensure safe and reliable handling of the towed load over hilly terrain, and are ideal for dedicated haulage application,

The heavy-duty Category II three-point hitch with lift capacity of 5 400kg is equipped with hook-type hitch arms for safe and easy hook-up with the implement. Mechanical lower link sensing enhances hitch response, ensuring optimised performance of both tractor and implement in the field.
