John Deere 5E Series utility tractors updated

John Deere is updating its 5E Series utility tractors for year 2018.

The four updated utility tractor models are the 5045E, 5055E, 5065E and 5075E, ranging from 50- to 73-engine horsepower and there are 2WD, MFWD, open operator station and cab versions to choose from. Each utility tractor is powered by a 3-cylinder, turbocharged John Deere PowerTech diesel engine.

Tractor controls on the 5E Series have been relocated to help reduce operator fatigue, including other improvements such as:

  • hand throttle 12 inches closer to the operator seat
  • repositioned joystick to provide 20 percent more legroom than previous models
  • thicker seat and taller seatback
  • 20 per cent wider operator station for more foot room
