John Deere tractors at Tillage-Live


John Deere’s trio of high performance tractors will be on show at the Tillage-Live event, in Lincolnshire, UK, on September 14. The company’s 7R, 8R and 9R Series tractors will be featured in the working demonstration area.

The 9620RX four-track tractor has a 462kW Stage IV 15-liter Cummins QSX engine, an e18 transmission, articulated steering, cab suspension and optional Active Command Steering for improved maneuverability.

A John Deere spokesperson said, “The 9RX range is designed to provide superior power, durability and improved ride quality, especially when handling large implements. The large, robust undercarriage features a positive-drive track system that effectively delivers more power to the ground. This is ideal for heavy draft applications such as cultivating, ploughing, dicing and ripping, subsoiling and large-scale drilling applications.”

The company’s 7310R tractor set a new total fluid efficiency record of 258g/kWh for high horsepower Stage III B and Stage IV tractors after undergoing the demanding Powermix test at the DLG test center in Germany at the end of 2014. A similarly high level of performance efficiency was also achieved by the same tractor in the DLG’s Transportmix test.

Powered by a new John Deere 9-liter Stage IV-compliant engine, and featuring an e23 transmission with Efficiency Manager, the 8400R delivers up to 450hp with Intelligent Power Management (IPM). This tractor is also fitted as standard with JDLink telematics, including remote display access (RDA) and wireless data transfer (WDT) linked to the company’s website portal.
