Premium cab for the ultimate operating experience
The premium cab is designed to provide the ultimate operator experience in comfort and convenience. With the adoption of some 5R Tractor cab structures and features, John Deere has added more technology options, better visibility, and an updated, user-friendly digital display.
Some of the key features include:
Bluetooth is a trademark of Bluetooth SIG, Inc.
Automotive-style light-emitting diode (LED) instrument cluster
Controlling the 5M is easier and brighter than ever before. A fresh new instrument cluster displays information in a crisp, vibrant, and useful array. A larger alternator (OOS: 90 amp, cab: 120 amp) produces plenty of power for internal and external components.
There are daytime and nighttime modes which are based on the position of the light switch. The mode actually adjusts the backlight levels of the display for optimum visibility.
16F/16R PowrReverser™ transmission
The PowrReverser transmission provides 16F/16R speeds and can be equipped with the factory-installed high/low creeper. This transmission comes standard with a dual-speed 540/540 Economy power take-off (PTO), and is ideal for applications requiring frequent directional changes.
Maximum productivity is achieved with clutchless hydraulic shifting between forward and reverse and is ideal for loader work and any other applications that require frequent directional switches in tight spaces. An electrohydraulic fingertip directional lever control allows the operator to effortlessly switch directions with a small finger motion. The control is located on the left side of the instrument console and selects forward, reverse, and neutral positions. It also allows the operator to steer and shift direction with the left hand, freeing the right hand to operate other tractor controls, such as the loader, rear implements, or hand throttle. The PowrReverser™ has a built-in engagement override valve for additional safety. This valve requires the clutch pedal to be depressed one time after each engine start before the transmission will begin to operate normally, giving the operator another opportunity to put all focus on the tractor.
The speed of directional changes can be adjusted to the operator's preference or application demands with the field-installed infinitely variable control kit.
All tractors have E-PTO (a fuel saving feature) that allows customers to operate rear implements at 540 PTO rpm but at lower engine rpm. The result is lower engine vibration, reduced noise, less wear and tear on the engine, reduced fuel consumption and increased operator comfort.
32F/16R PowrReverser™ transmission for ultimate speed control
For operators requiring more field speeds to achieve the most precise operating ranges, as well as for quickly moving from task to task with transport speeds of up to 40.23 km/h (25 mph), the 32F/16R PowrReverser™ Plus transmission is the ideal choice. This transmission provides 32F/16R speeds for the ultimate in speed selection. Convenient push-button controls actuate the electrohydraulic high/low selector. Also incorporated into the gear shift lever is the declutch button. No foot clutching is required to shift between gears within a range.
The gear lever selects one of four speeds, all synchronized shifts for on-the-go shifting with the use of the clutch. This same lever is where the high/low control buttons are located. The rear lever selects ranges A, B, C, or D. Ranges C and D are fully synchronized. That means, when upshifting, operators can move from ranges B to C to D without stopping the tractor. On the downshift, operators can move from D back down to C without stopping.
The high/low feature benefits operators who frequently transport their tractors from field to field or find themselves in bog-down situations during rear power take-off (PTO) work. Customers can push the rabbit button (high) without having to depress the clutch to get a 20 percent increase in speed. They can also push the turtle button (low) to get a 20 percent decrease in speed, similar to downshifting or engine braking without having to grab another gear. The 32F/16R transmission includes the infinitely variable shuttle control feature. The PowrReverser™ has a built-in engagement override valve for additional safety. This valve requires the clutch pedal to be depressed one time after each engine start before the transmission will begin to operate normally, giving the operator another opportunity to put all focus on the tractor.
NOTE: A neutral start switch requires the directional lever be in the neutral position to start the engine.
32F/16R transmission includes:
All 5M Tractors have E-PTO (a fuel-saving feature) that allows customers to operate rear implements at 540 PTO rpm but at lower engine rpm. The result is lower engine vibration, reduced noise, less wear and tear on the engine, reduced fuel consumption and increased operator comfort.
Heavy-duty 3-point hitch lift capacity for implement versatility
A Category 2, 3-point hitch on 5M Tractors provides the lift capacity and compatibility to perform in a variety of different applications. The 3-point hitch adapts to a wide variety of implements and has plenty of lift capacity to handle heavy implements such as planters, sprayers, and field cultivators.
Adjustable sway bars and telescoping draft links can be easily adjusted to adapt to a wide variety of implements. The right lift link also adjusts without tools for added convenience when leveling implements.
Operators do not need to carry a tool to adjust the rear hitch. Operators can also raise and lower the 3-point hitch from outside of the tractor with the conveniently located rear fender hitch controls.
An updated three-point quick hitch is offered on the 5M Tractors.
Power bulge and torque reserve pull through the tough spots
Putting more power to the ground translates to increased productivity in demanding conditions. Simply put, torque is the useable power that can be achieved. More torque leads to more lugging ability which helps the operator be more productive.
5M Final Tier 4 (FT4) engines feature up to a 4 percent power bulge when put under load. The power bulge feature of the electronically controlled engine delivers additional horsepower as engine rpm drops below rated speed. Additionally, a 30 percent torque rise provides the force that maintains horsepower as engine rpm drops below rated speed.
When the tractor is under load, power bulge and torque rise work together to get through the tough spots without having to downshift. Horsepower and torque are mathematically related.
As rpm drops, the only way to maintain or increase horsepower is to provide additional torque. The output horsepower is greater than or equal to rated horsepower as the engine is pulled down to 1750 rpm.
The peak torque rise also occurs near the rated economy power take-off (EPTO) speed.
Heavy base tractor weight for stability
A heavy tractor means more down force to keep implements in the ground. More weight also leads to improved traction and performance in the field. Because the 5M is made with heavy and durable cast steel, it weighs enough to power through those tough jobs.
The compactness of the 5M Series regarding wheelbase, weight, and total height tractor makes this tractor suited for a variety of different applications and is the perfect choice for all types of farms.
A heavy tractor also means better stability when performing loader work. Transport full bucket loads faster and lift bales higher with a stronger and more stable base.
EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4) compliant engines with maximum fluid efficiency
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Environment Canada requires all off-road diesel engines with 18.6 kW (25 hp) or more to meet stringent FT4 emissions regulations. John Deere uses the most efficient and cost-effective solution for the tractor package to meet emissions requirements at each horsepower level. The 5M delivers a hassle-free emissions solution that allows faster work and operation with ease.
Key components of the emissions system include:
Mounted near the DEF tank, the electronic control unit (ECU)-controlled supply module draws diesel exhaust fluid from the storage tank and provides a pressurized flow to the dosing module. When the ignition key is off, the supply module pump will reverse direction to return any accumulated fluid back to the tank. The supply module is also fitted with a replaceable filter to prevent contaminants from entering the dosing lines. Both the supply module and dosing lines are electrically heated and controlled by the ECU to determine when DEF dosing can begin.
Exhaust gas recirculation (EGR)
EGR reduces the high temperatures where these compounds are formed in the engine cylinders by replacing excess oxygen with a prescribed amount of cooled exhaust gas.
In addition, EGR allows for:
For added performance and efficiency, the engine passes the exhaust gases through an EGR cooler before it enters the engine.
Exhaust airflow enters the EGR cooler from the exhaust manifold near the turbocharger. Based on engine load, air temperatures, and rpm, the ECU opens or closes the EGR valve, allowing a measured percentage of exhaust gas to enter the intake manifold. The gases mix with the rest of the incoming air from the turbocharger and aftercooler before entering the cylinders.
Combustion process with externally cooled EGR
A restrained, cooler combustion is realized, since the typical hot combustion process, which is generated by an oxygen surplus, is dampened by the inert exhaust gases. Hence, NOx emissions are reduced.
