John Deere tractor now in two-wheel drive


New two-wheel drive version of the John Deere 5055E 55hp utility tractor

New two-wheel drive version of the John Deere 5055E 55hp utility tractor

John Deere has added a new two-wheel drive model to the 5E range of utility tractors. The 55hp open station 5055E is the only model in the range offered with 2WD, but otherwise features the same specifications as the 4WD 5055E, 5065E and 5075E models.
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.
