The tiltable steering feature is available on the premium version 5E models.
The tiltable steering column provides multiple positions to adjust the steering wheel.
The operator can choose the most comfortable driving position, thus reducing fatigue and aiding in easy entrance and exit.
Operators can expect sure stops when the unexpected happens in the field, on the highway, or at home with hydraulic wet-disk brakes.
The brake pedals can be locked together for braking action on both rear wheels when in transport, or they can be unlocked to make tighter turns in the field.
The brakes are oil cooled for maximum performance throughout the life of the tractor.
The 12F/12R PowrReverser transmission is ideal for heavy applications on 3-cylinder 5E Tractors. The John Deere built PowrReverser transmission provides 12 forward speeds and 12 reverse speeds (12F/12R) for operators requiring additional operating ranges, useful for field work and other applications. The PowrReverser transmission is equipped with a shiftable 540/540 Economy PTO. This transmission is ideal for operators using their tractors to perform in heavy applications. Maximum productivity is achieved with hydraulic power shift between forward and reverse and is ideal for loader and rear blade applications that require frequent directional switches in tight spaces. Excellent modulation allows the operator to shift the direction lever from neutral to forward or reverse, forward to reverse, reverse to forward, from forward or reverse to neutral.
Optional PowrReverser modulation control to adapt aggressiveness of reversing
Also advantageous when turning at the headland is the ability to control the aggressiveness of the forward/reverse modulation. The operator has the flexibility to control the modulation from a slow response, as preferred in precise operations such as loading, to a fast response, as desired in applications when every minute counts (for example in harvest or seeding).
The 5E engines are designed with high torque reserve of around 20-25 percent.
Backup torque is the ability of the machine to keep working as the engine pulls down due to increased load requirements over and above the maximum power.
This backup torque prevents temporary overload, and frequent gear shifting during haulage and tillage applications, thus reducing operator fatigue.
The 5E Series Tractor straddle-mount operator station is designed to position the operator farther forward and slightly lower than most other tractors in this class. This design improves the operator's ride and visibility.
Platform-mounted shift levers and suspended clutch and brake pedals contribute to a clean platform design. Suspended pedals also make it easier for the operator to get on and off the tractor, and make clutch operation easier on the operator when the tractor is used in applications requiring the pedals to be used frequently, such as loader work.
A deluxe seat with armrest is available to provide a comfortable ride. The seat is suspended by two springs with a hydraulic dampener. A mid-ride indicator allows the operator to optimize seat comfort.
The operator can adjust the seat up and down along an inclined rail by using a lever located to the right and under the seat. The suspension adjusts to the operator's weight.
All 5E Tractors come standard with storage locations for tools, parts, and operator's manuals. The toolbox is conveniently located on the left fender for easy access to tools and spare parts that may be needed in the field. It is made from a weather-resistant, durable plastic material.
A water bottle holder is placed right below the gear shift lever on the right-hand side of the operator.
Enter and exit the operator’s station with ease. To enhance access to the operator's station, left-side steps are standard equipment on all 5E Series Open Operator Station (OOS) Tractors.
Handrails provided on either side (with heat shield and on fenders) allow 3-point comfortable contact for the operator for easy enter and exit.
EQRL switches are ergonomically located on both front and rear sides. During headland turns, front EQRL switches allow the operator to quickly raise and lower the hitch without operating the PC and DC levers. EQRL switches located on the left-hand rear fender allow the operator to quickly hitch and unhitch an implement, thus helping to maintain the same depth and position throughout the field. This results in less fatigue for the operator, ultimately increasing productivity.
A limited-slip, heavy-duty MFWD front axle provides operators with increased drawbar pull and improved traction when operating under slippery conditions. This ensures the operator gets the required torque to the ground for applications that demand more from the tractor. The MFWD front axle also reduces wheel slippage with less tractor ballasting for reduced soil compaction, increased fuel economy, and longer tire life.
The MFWD centerline design provides excellent maneuverability around the worksite and more crop clearance so operators are not driving down their crops or profits. Additional versatility is proven when wheel treads are adjusted with 6 degrees of caster angle and a 55-degree turn angle, which results in a turning radius as short as 3 m (9.9 ft) when the brakes are applied, allowing plenty of horsepower to turn around in tight places. Ten degrees of axle oscillation follows uneven terrain, allowing for consistent performance and a comfortable ride.
Axle oscillation also reduces the stress and maintenance cost on the axle spindles because loads are consistently spread across the entire axle. The centerline design eliminates the need for drive shaft universal joints that require regular maintenance. Anti-wrap shielding on the driveline is standard to prevent crop material and debris from building around the driveline and ensures tractor performance. Three grease points are conveniently located to minimize maintenance time while maximizing front axle performance.
NOTE: The MFWD engagement lever is located on the left-hand side of the operator. For the operator’s convenience, when MFWD is engaged, an indicator light appears on the dash.
An accurate, easy-to-read electronic instrument panel, featuring backlighting for excellent night visibility, monitors these key tractor operating and performance functions:
Key indicators are as follows:
The system blinks if there is problem in the QRL system.
The clutch overriding indicator results in less clutch wear, improving the clutch life.
If the operator places his foot on the clutch pedal for more than 10 seconds, the clutch overriding indicator starts to blink and the buzzer starts to beep.
After five beeps, the buzzer will stop. However, the indicator will still blink if the operator has not removed his foot from the clutch pedal.
This avoids half-half-clutch-engaged operation due to ignorance.
An innovative feature with 5E premium models is the go-home feature that enables the operator to find the way back home after dark.
When pressing this button within 10 seconds before parking the tractor, the headlights remain on for 30 seconds.
After 30 seconds, the headlights turn off automatically.
The 540/540 economy PTO allows operators to select the engine rpm for reduced fuel consumption, reduced noise levels, reduced vibration, and less wear and tear on the engine, while at the same time keeping the proper 540 rpm at the PTO.
The economy PTO provides 540 rpm to the PTO at 1705 engine rpm. The 540 economy mode is ideal for any PTO application, for running a thresher, straw reaper, and other applications where full engine horsepower is not required.
Operating at lower engine rpm decreases fuel costs up to 30 percent and provides additional productivity by improving the operating experience through enhanced operator comfort from reduced noise and vibration.
A lever allows the operator to simply change between 540 and 540E when conditions merit the opportunity to save fuel without affecting performance.
For heavy-duty operations requiring maximum PTO power, the PTO shift lever is placed in the 540 position, the PTO is engaged, and the engine is run at a rated speed of 2400 rpm. This selection gives 540 rpm to the PTO shaft and delivers the fully advertised horsepower at rated engine speed.
When the tractor is in economy PTO mode, the engine is electronically limited to 1705 rpm, preventing accidental over-speeding of PTO implements and protecting against binding the PTO shaft.
This interlock also prevents accidental shifting of the PTO selector lever at engine speeds above 1700 rpm, which would lead to downtime for fixing implements or drivetrain components.
The synchromesh transmission is designed to match the excellent power and torque characteristics of John Deere PowerTech™ engines. Transmission durability is enhanced with the pressure-lubricated top shaft, allowing an operator to achieve performance from one working season to the next.
The transmission is characterized as partially top-shaft synchronized (TSS), as forward shifting on the go between speeds is not synchronized.
This technology equalizes the speed of gears, thus allowing smooth coupling.
|Base (collar shift)||5050E, 5055E, 5310, 5060E, 5065E|
|Optional (TSS)||5050E, 5055E, 5310, 5060E, 5065E|
A spacious straddle-mount design with side-mounted control levers makes it is ergonomical for the operator, and renders these products suitable for ag as well as commercial applications.
Nine forward and three reverse (9F/3R) speeds are achieved by using two platform-mounted levers for shift operation. The gear lever at the operator's right hand selects one of three forward gears and one reverse gear, as well as the integrated park position. The range lever at the operator's left hand selects collar-shift A, B, and C ranges.
The layout of the gear lever has two forward and reverse gears on the top of the lever, making the operation easy for commercial applications like loaders and dozers.
Operators can easily switch directions without having to completely stop the tractor with top-shaft synchronizer (TSS).
A neutral start switch requires the gear-shift lever be in the neutral or park positions to start the engine.
A positive park pawl on the transmission provides positive park and eliminates the need for a hand brake. This mechanism is built into the transmission for positive gear locking. Even if there is a failure in the braking system, one is safe from accidental tractor movement.
This also eliminates clutch service costs that occur when the park brake is accidentally left engaged.
