140 to 210 hp. Throttle up a 6 Series to meet any need, from baling hay to snow removal, and from commercial mowing to municipal applications. With 20 percent more interior space and a host of other new features, row-crop and hay producers won't find a more versatile tractor.
210 to 310 engine hp. The 7R Series Tractors have high power density because of their low overall machine weight and high horsepower rating. Couple that with the FT4 engine and the efficiency features found on IVT and e23™ transmissions, and theses tractors are an excellent choice in transport applications such as silage or manure hauling because they provide fast acceleration and low total fluid economy.
245 to 400 engine hp. The 8R/8RT Series Tractors are world-class machines designed to provide the hydraulic capacity and horsepower to handle large planters and implements. Powered by the PowerTech™ PSS 9.0L engine, the 8R is a champion in the field, delivering uncompromised performance while meeting Tier 4 emission requirements.
1918-2018: The Legend Runs On
Deere begins selling the well-known Waterloo Boy tractor, alongside the John Deere All-Wheel Drive (of which 90 were built).
Introduced in late 1923, the Model “D” tractor replaces the Waterloo Boy. It will remain in production for 30 years.
Model “A” tractor offered adjustable rear axles for various row crops, as well as optional hydraulic Power Lift for raising and lowering mounted implements while the tractor is in motion or sitting still.
Quick-Tatch equipment and Touch-O-Matic offered one-touch, hydraulic control for drawn implements.
Roll-O-Matic provided a smoother ride and easier steering on narrow front-end tractors. When one wheel went up, it forced the other down so the tractor could “walk” over obstacles.
Deere offers industry-first power steering on tractors.
Industry firsts in the lineup include hydraulic power brakes, closed-center hydraulics for instant power, and the industry’s first wheel tractor with over 100 PTO and drawbar horsepower.
Roll-Gard™, also known as ROPS (Roll-Over Protective Structure), is introduced as a safety feature, and later released for adoption for the entire industry.
The Models 4030, 4230, 4430 and 4630 tractors offer an optional Sound-Gard cab, an industry first dust-free, temperature controlled operator station that provided “freedom from the elements.”
Building on the success of the optional 8-speed power shift transmission introduced on John Deere tractors in 1964, the 15-speed PowerShift transmission, as well as mechanical front wheel drive on the 50 series tractor, became options.
16-speed PowrQuad transmission offered as part of the “New Breed of Power” line, the biggest tractor design change.
Autotrac™, part of the Greenstar precision agriculture management system, provides assisted steering accurate to within 4-inches pass to pass and guided the tractor in a straight line down rows.
Our integrated approach to meeting Final Tier 4 regulations allows us to focus the performance of the engine on its power, torque, efficiency, and responsiveness, rather than just emissions compliance.
