Equipment Profiles: Field Tractors

5E Limited Series Utility Tractor

John Deere has recently redesigned many of its 5 Series Utility Tractors. With more horsepower options ranging from 65 to 115, the 5E Limited Series tractors can handle a wider variety of attachments. Changes to the new 5E Limited Series start with a new cab designed with an easier-to-reach hitch, hydraulic and power take-off (PTO) controls on the right side, and a cleaner, more comfortable cab with an optional push-button air-suspension seat for a better ride. The 5E Limited tractors also come standard with a mechanical front wheel drive (MFWD) engagement feature that activates two- or four-wheel drive with the shift of a lever, a new MFWD indicator light, a new hydraulic system with an optional triple deluxe selective control valve stack that can handle more demanding attachments, and the popular Economy PTO setting that saves fuel and engine wear and reduces noise and emissions when operating PTO-driven equipment.
