John Deere’s latest 5G Series tractor line-up includes four model ranges featuring 3.2 and 4.5-litre Stage IIIA engines with a rated power of 75, 85 or 100hp (97/68/EC), plus a choice of two- or four-wheel drive.

This new series has been specifically designed to provide high levels of comfort, power, hydraulic performance and manoeuvrability to customers who require a versatile utility tractor with compact dimensions and a narrow tread width.

The 5GF, 5GN and 5GV Series tractors offer customers an open operator station or a redesigned cab for maximum visibility and operator comfort, plus a wide range of transmission, PTO and hydraulic options, from entry level to premium alternatives. These include:

  • a two-wheel drive 12F/12R speed transmission up to a four-wheel drive 24F/12R PowrReverser transmission;
  • a 540/540E PTO, or a 540/1000 PTO including ground drive;
  • a twin pump hydraulic system with two mechanical SCVs, or a triple pump system with four electro-hydraulic SCVs including seven mid-mounted couplers.

The open centre hydraulic system provides ample power, supplying up to 122.5 litres/min hydraulic flow when equipped with three pumps. For extra comfort and convenience, a joystick provides fingertip control of implements when using the electro-hydraulic SCV option.

The tractors’ three-point hitch has a maximum lift capacity of 2590kg as standard, or with additional lift cylinders this can be increased to 3100kg. New push-button controls allow the hitch to be steered hydraulically from side to side, making it easier to operate rear-mounted implements in confined spaces. In addition, the operator can manually adjust the implement to keep it level to the ground, particularly when working on slopes.

Completing the new John Deere line-up of speciality tractors for 2015, the low-profile 5GL Series 75 and 85hp four-wheel drive models feature an open operator station and a 24F/24R Sync Reverser mechanical Hi-Lo transmission.
