John Deere unveils new 9R/9RT Series tractors for 2015
John Deere’s new 9R/9RT Series wheeled and tracked tractors for 2015 feature more horsepower on all models and industry-leading hydraulic capacity.
Rated from 420 to 620hp, the new range includes five 9R articulated four-wheel drive models, the 9420R, 9470R, 9520R, 9570R and the 9620R, which is now the largest John Deere tractor ever built; and three tracked models, the 9470RT, 9520RT and 9570RT.
John Deere’s advanced PowerTech PSS 13.5-litre engine, plus the 15-litre Cummins QSX15 engine on the 9570R and 9620R, are all Final Tier 4/Stage IV compliant and deliver the reliable horsepower and torque required for increased machine performance. All the engines share a common technology approach to meet the latest near-zero emissions regulations, featuring exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and an exhaust after-treatment combination of a diesel particulate filter (DPF) and selective catalytic reduction (SCR).
The new, improved e18 PowerShift transmission with Efficiency Manager has been designed to increase efficiency and operator productivity. In addition, hydraulic flow has been increased to 435 litres/min, giving these tractors plenty of capacity to handle large implements with ease.
An industry exclusive feature is the HydraCushion suspension system on the 9520R, 9570R and 9620R models. Located on the front axle, HydraCushion suspension eliminates power hop to ensure operators can get all of the available horsepower onto the ground.
The new CommandView III Cab provides increased operator comfort and ease of operation, with a redesigned CommandARM featuring a John Deere 4600 CommandCentre display for convenient control of all tractor functions and settings. This puts everything at the operator's fingertips, while sitting in a seat that can swivel 40 degrees to reduce strain when viewing rear implements.
All the tractors come with a new premium LED lighting package for unmatched work illumination at night. Optional Active Command Steering, another industry exclusive for four-wheel drive tractors, provides improved steering at high transport speeds and reduces steering effort in the field.
The new John Deere 9R/9RT Series tractors are also available ex-factory with John Deere’s latest FarmSight technology solutions, along with dealer value-added services and support. These include AutoTrac automatic steering, JDLink telematics, iTEC Pro headland management, ISOBUS and new Remote Display Access and Wireless Data Transfer options.
