John Deere has announced that it is adding a new tractor to its specialty lineup: the high-crop 5115RH. In addition, the company is making ergonomic updates to its model year 2020 5GN and 5GV tractors.
There will be a new 5GV cab option and an optional front hitch for 5GN tractors. The 5115RH will have base 230/95 R40 tires and provide 26.9 inches of crop clearance to the drawbar, as well as 28.6 inches of clearance to the center of the axle.
Customers can dial in ground speeds between .28 mph and 30 mph using the John Deere Command 8 Transmission with creeper function. This allows the machine to maintain constant low speeds for planting, harvesting or prepping beds for crops. The tractor also has a John Deere engine with 115 horsepower, eight percent power bulge, and 36 percent torque rise to pull drawn implements out in the field.
"Factory-installed integrated guidance is available to reduce operator fatigue and decrease chances for crop damage," said John Doyle, product marketing manager for John Deere. "Field mapping, spray documentation, data collection, ISOBUS communication and Section Control are also available to help customers make better informed agronomic and equipment decisions with data coming from their fields and equipment. Customers can share this information wirelessly and effortlessly with their trusted advisors or employees using the John Deere Operations Center."
The 5115RH will be available to order starting this month. More information on the 5115RH and the updates to the 2020 5GN and 5GV tractors can be found on www.JohnDeere.com or by contacting your local John Deere dealer.
