John Deere Updates Popular 3-Cylinder 5E Series Utility Tractors Improving Operator's Handling Ease


John Deere is updating its popular 3-cylinder 5E Series Utility Tractors for model year 2018. Visibility to the tractor’s loader has been improved and controls have been repositioned to further enhance operator comfort and reduce fatigue.



The four updated models are the 5045E, 5055E, 5065E and 5075E Utility Tractors, ranging from 50- to 73-engine horsepower. There are 2WD, MFWD, open operator station and cab versions to choose from. Each is powered by a 3-cylinder, turbocharged John Deere PowerTechTM diesel engine.



“New 5E Series tractors are sure to become the go-to chore and loader tractors for large property owners, and non-commercial ag customers. One reason is the improved visibility from the tractor seat, as the hoods on the new tractors were lowered 3.5 inches and are 4 inches narrower than previous models,” says John Deere product marketing manager, Nick Weinrich. “Whether you’re stacking bales, pushing snow, or moving in an out of a barn, having a lower profile and good visibility from the tractor seat while you work is paramount.”



To help reduce operator fatigue, many tractor controls were relocated. “We moved the hand throttle 12 inches closer to the operator seat and repositioned the joystick to provide 20 percent more legroom than previous models,” Weinrich said. “In addition, John Deere added a thicker seat and taller seatback to provide operators all-day comfort. The operator station was also widened 20 percent to create more foot room and the tractor platform is flatter than previous models. This makes it easier to climb on and off of the tractor and reduces operator fatigue.”



“We improved the productivity and value of our 5E Series Tractors so they are now even easier to own and operate. The combination of new features, along with a 5-year powertrain warranty, provides tremendous value to all customers who are looking for a new utility tractor,” Weinrich said.
