John Deere tractor now in two-wheel drive
The 5055E is a small, lightweight and manoeuvrable machine, perfect for use as a utility, front loader or scraper tractor on a dairy farm, for example, but also equally suitable for smallholders and equestrian centres, or as a general-purpose tractor for use by local authorities.
It is available ex-factory with 6.0x16 Goodyear front tyres and 14.9x28 Goodyear rear tyres only, and can be adjusted to a variety of track widths from 1.5 to 2m (59.6 to 79.7in).
The 5055E is powered by an easy to service Tier III intercooled three-cylinder John Deere PowerTech M engine with turbocharger and viscous fan. The synchronised 9F/3R inline transmission follows an H pattern and can be shifted on the move via side-shift levers within the range. It includes a park brake for safe parking on slopes, and self-adjusting, self-equalising and hydraulically actuated wet disk brakes.
Lift capacity is 1.8 tonnes at the hitch balls, and the tractor can be fitted with a choice of two mechanical self-levelling or non self-levelling loaders, with lift capacities of either 873kg or 989kg to a maximum lift height of 3.38m. A fold-away roll-over frame is fitted as standard, and a two-post sun protection canopy is available as an option.
Basic list price of the new John Deere 5055E 2WD tractor is £13,505 or €15,535 (both prices excluding VAT).
• In addition, a new 24 forward/12 reverse PowerReverser transmission is now available for the 5G Series tractors from 80 to 100hp, including the GF (fruit) and GV (vineyard) models. This features an electric left-hand reverser lever and a reliable long-life clutch design that makes these tractors ideal for front loader work and for uphill starts with heavy implements or trailers.
