John Deere 9R Family of Tractors Get New Updates Including a Mix of Performance-Enhancing Tech


John Deere is announcing several updates for model year 2019 to its large 9R, 9RT, and 9RX Tractors that include a mix of the latest technology and performance-enhancing features.



For the first time, John Deere is offering a 120-inch (3.05 m) track spacing option on 9470RX, 9520RX, 9570RX and 9620RX Series Four Track Ag Tractors equipped with 30- and 36-inch (76.2 cm and 91.4 cm) tracks. “The extra wide stance of this machine is ideal for customers wanting to control traffic patterns and enhanced stability on hilly terrain,” says Tiffany Turner, product marketing manager, large tractors for John Deere. “A wider stance also makes it easier to perform daily maintenance and service plus it offers hassle-free material cleanout.”



Turner says customers requiring a John Deere 9RX equipped with a 3-point hitch must select the 87-inch (2.21 m) track spacing option with the 30-inch (76.2 cm) tracks as the wider 120-inch (3.05 m) track spacing is not compatible with a 3-point hitch.



Deere is also offering the option of a factory- or field-installed Hydraulic Intelligent Power Management (IPM™) system to boost tractor performance when operating implements requiring continuous hydraulic power.



“Hydraulic IPM is specifically designed for air seeding operators using large drills and air carts on their farms,” Turner says. “Hydraulic IPM provides an extra 25 horsepower in gears 5 thru 18 and adds 50 more horsepower in gears 1 thru 4, enabling the tractor to pull heavy loads through tough conditions.”



A dual-pump specific selective control valve has eight total SCVs – three, with three-quarter-inch (1.9 cm) SCVs; and five, with half-inch (1.3 cm) SCVs. The larger couplers allow for an extra 7 gallons (26.5 L) per minute hydraulic oil flow to reduce restrictions to high demand fan motors on large air carts. Increased hydraulic capacity also makes it quicker to raise and lower the frames on large air drills for improved efficiency in the field.



Hydraulic IPM is compatible with model year 2015 John Deere 9620R Ag Tractors and 2016 9620RX Ag Tractors. It requires a 115-gallon (435 L) per minute dual hydraulic pump and is not compatible with a 3-point hitch.



A factory-installed Generation 4 CommandCenter™ 18-1 Software update is also included as base equipment for model year 2019 on John Deere 9R, 9RT and 9RX Tractors.



A CommandCenter AutoTrac™ activation comes with the MY 2019 update and provides a non-transferrable, machine-specific AutoTrac functionality on the integrated Gen 4 Command Center. The previously available Command Center Premium Activation will be discontinued and replaced with the 4600 CommandCenter Premium Activation 3.0 or 4600 CommandCenter Automation 1.0.



“AutoTrac guidance is included in base equipment on these tractors. AutoTrac has been shown to reduce operator fatigue, save fuel by reducing overlap, and help you work more acres in less time,” Turner explains.
