The 7R, 8R, and 8RT Series Tractors feature two lighting package options:

  • Standard 
  • Premium

The cab lighting pattern provides 330 degrees of coverage while the hood lighting provides the remaining 30 degrees for completely programmable 360-degree, stadium-style lighting. This ensures there are no dead zones or lighting adjustments needed. The lighting configurations are available to match various applications and ensure maximum around-the-clock productivity.

Bulb housings are large, allowing for optimum total lumens and available light. The standard lighting packages use 65-W halogen bulbs, whereas the premium lighting package uses light-emitting diode (LED) lights. In the premium lighting package, these tractors take advantage of the high-performing and efficient LED technology.

The low- and high-beam driving/work lights are adjustable. Please refer to the electrical section in the operator’s manual for complete details on adjusting lights.

The premium lighting package replaces all previous halogen and HID lights with LED lights. The only lights that are not LED are the low-beam driving lights, they remain halogen. This allows each LED light to work at a lower temperature and no one light works harder than any other. The uniformity in LED coverage allows only one type of light output surrounding the tractor.

 

The lighting pattern in the premium package provides industry-leading performance in nighttime visibility. LED bulbs provide maximum brightness and a true color output for excellent field definition that is easy on the operator's eyes.

 

The LED lights provide 40 percent greater coverage width and 10 percent more light coverage in the rear. LED lighting packages use 45 percent less amps than standard halogen lights and have an increased life expectancy over HID lights which leads to lower costs of ownership over the life of the tractor.

 

NOTE: Lighting packages may vary depending on region.

ACS overview
8R in transport8R in transport
#

With ACS, John Deere has designed one of the most robust and full-encompassing steering system in the industry. Whether in the field or on the road, ACS reduces steering effort, which can result in reduced operator fatigue and can improve operator comfort.

 

There are four key features of the ACS system:

 

Dynamic road wheel offset:

  • A gyroscope senses tractor yaw and can automatically make small steering adjustments to provide unprecedented line-holding abilities. Drive down a bumpy road and experience how ACS makes it easier to keep the tractor straight, even over rough terrain.  ACS delivers the ultimate in comfort.
  • ACS works to prevent over-steering when a sudden obstacle causes the operator to make a quick steering reaction.

 

Variable ratio steering:

  • Approximately 3.5 turns lock-to-lock at in-field speeds for quick headland turns.
  • Approximately 5 turns lock-to-lock at transport speeds.

Elimination of steering slop and hand wheel drift:

  • Steering wheel drift and slop are eliminated with the ACS electronic control system.

 

Variable effort steering:

  • Steering wheel resistance automatically changes with ground speed to deliver light steering effort at slower speeds for less effort during headland turns, and higher steering wheel torque at transport speeds for better comfort.

 

A fail operational system

The ACS system is fail operational, which means steering is still functional in the event of any single-point failure. John Deere has gone to great lengths to help ensure the operator has the ability to steer the tractor if something goes wrong in the steering system.
 
For example, if the primary controller fails, a second controller takes over. If power from the alternator fails, the battery resumes control. If the engine quits running and is unable to supply hydraulic oil to the system, an electric-driven backup pump is used to supply the oil. There is a backup for ACS components.

ACS componentsACS components
#

The ACS system consists of several key components:

  1. Gyroscope: this is used to measure the yaw rate (turn rate) of the tractor during transport speeds.
  2. Road-wheel angle sensors: these sensors simply measure the steer angle of the tractor.
  3. Power supply module: this module distributes the power of the battery and alternator throughout the ACS system.
  4. Hand-wheel angle sensors and tactile feedback unit: this includes the steering wheel position sensors and a brake which can increase or decrease resistance dependent on speed. Lighter feedback is desired during normal field use, and slightly heavier feedback is desired during transport and while the tractor is cornering at high speeds.
  5. Controllers: two controllers are located in the back of the tractor and are the brains of the system.
  6. Control valves: also known as steering valves, control valves are used to steer the tractor.
  7. Electric-drive backup pump: this pump supplies oil to the steering system, brakes, and park (for towing) brake if there is no longer a sufficient oil supply to the steering and brakes. 
Value of ACS
  • Improves line holding when driving at transport speeds
  • Fewer turns lock-to-lock: 3.5 turns lock-to-lock in the field for quicker headland turns and 5 turns lock-to-lock at transport speeds
  • Eliminates hand wheel backlash and drift
  • Reduces steering effort results in reduced operator fatigue
  • Smaller hand-wheel diameter for improved operator comfort and visibility
  • Maintains operator feel and touch-points of traditional steering column system
  • Fully integrates with AutoTrac™ guidance assisted steering stems
  • Compatible with suspended and non-suspended front axles
  • Compatible with wide and narrow section width tires

The brakes are designed with large-diameter rear disc brakes and powerful activating pistons. The brakes run in oil for cooling and long life in the most demanding situations. Braking in the field during a turn can be accomplished with light pedal effort and excellent modulation of brake forces.

 

Hydraulically actuated, power wet-disc brakes:

  • Never require adjustment
  • Oil cooled for long life
  • Tractors equipped with front brakes use annular pistons that automatically retract after each braking operation to reduce friction for better fuel economy
  • Self-equalizing feature ensures even braking to each wheel
  • Integrated backup braking capabilities built into the brake system to provide positive brake engagement should the engine or hydraulic system fail
  • Brake valve is located externally of the cab to provide a quiet operating environment

An integrated park brake is included with all transmission options.

 

Front wet-disc brakes are included on 8R Series Tractors equipped with the 50-km/h (31-mph Independent-Link Suspension (ILS™) axle and 7R Series Tractors equipped with a 50-km/h (31-mph) Triple-Link Suspension (TLS™) Plus front axle. Front Brakes are optional equipment on the 8R 42-km/h (26-mph) ILS axle and 40-km/h (25-mph) TLS Plus front axles.

 

Foot brakes on tractors equipped with AutoPowr™/Infinitely Variable Transmission (IVT™) transmissions have an integrated AutoClutch™, as described in the IVT section. Similarly, foot brakes on tractors equipped with e23™ transmissions have integrated AutoClutch™, as described in the e23 section.

 

For towing very large loads, the 7R and 8R Series Tractors can be equipped with a complete air-brake-system or a hydraulic brake coupler, or both. The brakes supply air or oil pressure to a brake-equipped trailer or implement.

All 8R and 8RT Series Tractors come standard with an 85-cc displacement integrated hydraulic pump. This pump provides 227.1 L/min (60 gpm) of hydraulic flow.

 

A dual-pump option, featuring 85-cc and 35-cc displacement hydraulic pumps, is available for all 8R wheel models. The dual-pump system provides a hydraulic flow of 321 L/min (85 gpm), ideal for running at lower engine speeds.

Operating the tractor at reduced engine rpm contributes to a quieter cab, reduced fuel usage, and maintains the vacuum while turning and raising the planter on end rows. At 1500 erpm with a 321 L/min (85 gpm) system there will be an available flow of 229 L/min (61 gpm). This is an improvement over an available 162 L/min (43-gpm) flow when operating with a 227 L/min (60 gpm) system at 1500 erpm.

 

The maximum flow through one selective control valve (SCV) with a standard coupler is 132 L/min (35 gpm). A 19.1-mm (3/4-in.) high-flow coupler allows for a maximum flow rate out of one SCV of 153 L/min (40.5 gpm).

 

The hydraulic system is a closed-center, power-on-demand system using a load-sensing pressure-flow compensated axial piston pump with full-flow charge and flow prioritization for steering and brakes.

 

The pump outlet pressure available on demand can range from 3000 kPa (435 psi) for track models and 4000 kPa (580 psi) for wheel models at low standby to 20,400 kPa (2958 psi) at high standby.

 

Hydraulic pump options:

  • 85-cc displacement, 227-L/min (60-gpm) hydraulic pump
    • NOTE: Standard on all 8R models.
  • 85-cc and 35-cc dual pump option, 321-L/min (85-gpm)
    • NOTE: Compatible with 2014 Final Tier 4 (FT4) and newer 8R Wheel Tractors only.

Steering circuit change and steering sensitivity adjustment

 

8RT Series Tractors include an improved steering pump, changes to the loop-override circuit, and in-cab steering sensitivity adjustment.

 

The improved steering pump and changes to the loop-override circuit increase steering response and steering authority on 8RT Series Tractors. Operators will notice this change when working in heavy draft, soft field conditions, and obstacle avoidance. The steering pump and loop-override circuit give the 8RT the ability to turn under load like no other two-track tractor in the industry.

 

8RT steering sensitivity adjusted in the 4600 CommandCenter Display

 

This feature allows operators to fine tune the steering system based on the application or environment.

 

Steering sensitivity adjustment does not only help when steering the tractor manually. Operators using guidance systems will also experience improved response with the ability to input tractor tread settings in the 4600 CommandCenter Display. From there, the tractor will control the steering pump to ensure steering is consistent no matter which tread setting the operator is utilizing.

How exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) works

EGR reduces the high temperatures where nitrogen oxide (NOx) compounds are formed in the engine cylinders by replacing excess oxygen with a prescribed amount of cooled exhaust gas.

Exhaust gases contain more carbon dioxide than oxygen. The EGR valve in conjunction with the venturi and engine control unit (ECU) allows a controlled amount of exhaust gas to enter the intake manifold to mix with the incoming fresh air. Replacing excess oxygen with cooled exhaust gas leads to lower combustion temperatures, creating less NOx. In addition, EGR allows for advanced timing, leading to optimal performance of the engine, maximizing fuel economy.

The following diagrams illustrate how air flows through the engine.

For added performance and efficiency, the engine passes the exhaust gases through an EGR cooler before it enters the engine.

PSS engine diagramPSS engine diagram
#

Flow of exhaust during engine operation
 
Exhaust airflow enters into the EGR cooler from the exhaust manifold near the turbocharger.

Based on engine load, air temperatures, and rpm, the engine control unit (ECU) opens or closes the EGR valve, allowing a measured percentage of exhaust gas to enter the intake manifold.

The gases mix with the rest of the incoming air from the turbocharger and aftercooler before entering the cylinders.

Front PTOFront PTO

For increased versatility, two 1000-rpm front PTO options are available from the factory for 7R and 8R Series Tractors equipped with the John Deere front hitch.

  • Type 2, 1000-rpm (counterclockwise as seen from front), 35-mm (1 3/8-in.), 21-spline front PTO
  • Type 3, 1000-rpm (counterclockwise as seen from front), 45-mm (1 ¾-in.) 20-spline front PTO (available through Parts only)

Front PTO features include:

  • The ability to be incorporated with iTEC™ sequences
  • Three choices of engagement modulation: auto, low, and high
  • Integrated controls
  • Cornerpost display indicators 
  • Bolt-on shaft makes it easy to change shafts if necessary.
  • Remote PTO engagement

7R specific features:

  • 130 kW (175 hp)
  • Integrated with all transmissions
  • PTO disconnect for efficiency
  • Requires Triple-Link Suspension (TLS™) front axle

8R specific features:

  • 112 kW (150 hp)
  • Integrated with the infinitely variable transmission (IVT™)
  • Requires Independent-Link Suspension (ILS™) with front brakes


Intelligent Power Management (IPM)

IPM is compatible with 7R and 8R Series Tractors equipped with a front PTO option. The front PTO, rear PTO, or transport speeds can activate IPM on 7R Tractors. However, on 8R Tractors, IPM is only activated by the rear PTO or by transport speeds. For example:

  • A front snow blower will not benefit from IPM on an 8R since the front PTO alone will not activate IPM.
  • A triple-mounted mower-conditioner will benefit from IPM as high power levels are transmitted via the rear PTO. The front mower-conditioner will have 112 kW (150 hp) available to it on an 8R, which is adequate to operate these mowers in most crop conditions.
  • See Intelligent Power Management for more information.
PTO disconnect on 7 Family Tractors

Disconnecting the PTO drive to the PTO box when not in use increases tractor efficiency by reducing:

  • Power requirements, which saves nearly 70 percent of power required to run the PTO disengaged
  • Wear on components of the PTO box; components are not moving when the PTO is disconnected

Refer to the Operator’s Manual for instructions on how to disconnect the PTO when not in operation.

Front PTO operation
Remote control at front of tractor Remote control at front of tractor

Front PTO engagement is actuated through an engagement switch similar to the rear PTO located on the CommandARM™ controls.

  • PTO clutch is electronically activated with automatic torque modulation.
    • PTO modulation is selectable through the CommandCenter™ display.
  • To activate the PTO remotely, select the remote PTO enable button in Generation 4 CommandCenter display, push down and forward on the front PTO switch in the cab and use the remote control at the front of the tractor.

NOTE: For the 8R Series, if the tractor is equipped with a front PTO, additional IPM power will transfer through the front PTO. However, IPM activation is only sensed through the rear PTO. Adequate load must be sensed on the rear PTO in order for IPM to activate.

The John Deere Waterloo Operations Gold Key Program was designed to recognize and honor those purchasing Waterloo-built tractors. The Gold Key tour provides an opportunity for a customer to follow his or her tractor as it is built on the assembly line. If a Gold Key customer is unable to visit the day the tractor is on the assembly line, the customer may elect an alternative date within 90 days to schedule a tour. This will be recognized as a Gold Key experience where the customer adopts a tractor to follow rather than watch his or her own tractor being built. After 90 days, the visit will be deemed a VIP tour and Gold Key memorabilia will not be provided.

Definition of a Gold Key tour

A Gold Key tour entails an exclusive, behind-the-scenes guided tour of the assembly production lines. The customer, or product owner, may bring up to three additional guests on the tour. Tour participants will wear Gold Key owner identification bump caps and other personal protective equipment while being escorted privately by a tour guide. Every attempt will be made to make sure the customer will see the specific tractor ordered come off the final assembly line; however, in order to satisfy delivery needs, the first priority is to keep the manufacturing lines running at full capacity.

 

The Gold Key visit date is based on when the customer’s tractor is expected to reach the final line. It is John Deere’s goal that a customer drives his or her tractor off the final line at the end of the tour. It is imperative to notify the John Deere dealer from whom the tractor was purchased in order to initiate a Gold Key tour. The John Deere dealer will be required to register guests on the Gold Key registration website as soon as possible if a Gold Key visit is requested. The owner will be presented with a gold key, a certificate, and other memorabilia at the conclusion of the factory visit. Breakfast and lunch will also be provided the day of the tourisit.

Process of Gold Key tour

The owner will need to notify the John Deere dealer where the Waterloo-built 6000 Series – 9000 Series Tractor was purchased. The Gold Key coordinator will be the sole contact with the dealership representative to make visit arrangements and confirmations for the visit. 

 

Shortly after the Gold Key coordinator confirms the request, all appropriate paperwork and information will be sent to the dealer. The customer will then receive all welcome documents in the mail. The Gold Key coordinator will also make direct contact with the customer to confirm the visit.

Ahrens Farms of Owatonna, MN participated in the Gold Key Tour at John Deere Waterloo Works in 2015. They purchased a 9470RT Tractor.

While every attempt will be made, and the factory will do everything possible to allow a customer to see his or her tractor being built, production schedules change for many reasons. Should production change at the last minute, the owner may arrive only to find that either the tractor has been pushed back or pulled ahead and already built. While that is certainly not the intention, the possibility remains.

 

The factory cannot  be responsible for:

  • Production delays, work ahead, or production revisions
  • Any option changes at the factory level
  • Overnight accommodations; however, assistance with information is available upon request
  • Travel costs
Gold Key Tour guidelines
  • All Gold Key tours must be initiated by the selling John Deere dealer through the Gold Key profile request form.
  • The Gold Key coordinator at the Waterloo Tractor Factory will be responsible for updating the customer and dealer of the tractor build status.
  • Gold Key treatment will not be recognized if any of the requirements are not met prior to arrival at the factory.
  • The Gold Key Program is only available within 90 days of the tractor's build date.
  • Every attempt will be made to make sure the customer will see his or her tractor come off the assembly line; however, the factory has first priority for production obligations.
  • Gold Key tours are limited to the customer and three other persons, no more than four people total (excluding dealer).
  • All guests attending Gold Key tours must be 13 years of age or older. Any teenage children must be accompanied and under constant supervision of a parent and/or guardian.

Brakes

The 7R Series and 8R Series Tractors offer dual-line hydraulic trailer brakes, dual-line air trailer brakes, or dual-line air and dual-line hydraulic trailer brakes, which allow the tractor braking system to connect to implements with high-pressure air or hydraulic brakes. Both systems automatically balance the brake pressure of both the tractor and implement to provide comfortable braking performance.

Trailer brake settings are fully customizable by adjusting gain and pre-brake settings. Trailer brake gain will give customers the ability to adjust how aggressive the trailer brakes are as the tractor brake pedal is depressed. Pre-brake adjustment will allow operators to adjust when the brakes are initiated in reference to the tractor brake pedal being depressed. This along with AutoClutch™ system settings will help the operator achieve optimum braking performance of both tractor and implement. Operators will also be able to test the trailer brake park release while the tractor is still in park during connecting and pre-trip activities.

Dual-beam radar emission horns Dual-beam radar emission horns
Dual-beam radar (tracks tractor shown)Dual-beam radar (tracks tractor shown)
Shield for dual radar beamShield for dual radar beam

In today’s agricultural environment, accuracy and precision are more important than ever. For something as basic as ground speed, operators need key information for precise control of various implements and the tractor. To support these needs, tractors can be ordered with a dual-beam radar unit as a factory- or field-installed option.

 

There are several key features that have changed from previous designs.

 

First, there are two horns for exit of the radio beam. This dual-beam design assures a powerful and accurate signal that will cut through interference that at times makes single-beam units inaccurate. (See 1 in the image above for beam locations.) Dual-beam output makes radar less susceptible to hard surface or tall/wavy grass interference.

 

Accuracy is aided by a heavy-gauge mounting bracket and rubber isolators that reduce chances that vibration can affect the radio signal.

 

Dual-beam radar has a fast update rate. When the tractor comes to a stop, accelerates, or varies speed, the indicated ground speed on the tractor display will closely match the actual ground speed. This is important for implements that use radar speed to control operation such as planters, seeders, fertilizer applicators, and sprayers.

In addition, the dual-beam radar does not require calibration to assure accuracy. Its self-calibrating ability is sure to save setup time by elimination of a special procedure that was required in the past.

 

The radar true ground speed sensor activates the following CommandCenterTM display or performance monitor readouts:

  • Percent slip
  • Hitch slip command (if equipped)


Radar usage improves the accuracy of the following CommandCenter or performance monitor functions:

  • Area covered
  • Area/hour
  • Distance and ground speed

Dual-beam units are compatible with controller area network (CAN) bus and International Organization for Standardization (ISO) bus electrical systems.

Fuel/Water Separator Kit, Severe Duty - BRE10220

IPM

NOTE: IPM is only available for Tier 3/Stage IIIA, Interim Tier 4/Stage IIIB, Final Tier 4/Stage V engines, and not for Stage II engines.

 

This feature is for many typical farming operations that use the rear power take-off (PTO) in high-power applications or the tractor as a transport vehicle. Operators who are looking for more power in non-stationary PTO and transport applications will be interested in the IPM feature.

 

In high rear PTO power applications such as forage harvesters, rototillers, and beet or potato harvesting equipment or where heavy trailers, carts, or implements are moved to and from various locations, this feature provides significant additional capabilities. The solution improves productivity with more consistent ground speeds, quicker acceleration, and the ability to better hold desired transport speeds.

 

This two-in-one tractor solution successfully operates in power-intensive PTO and transport applications at reasonable low fuel consumption without being disadvantaged by the higher weight, the bigger proportions, and the extra costs of the next higher horsepower model.

 

This feature is available as a factory- or field-installed option.

Tractor applications
8R Tractor in transport8R Tractor in transport

Rear PTO field applications

  • Rear-mounted snow blowers
  • Sugar beet harvesting
  • Forage harvesters
  • Potato harvesting
  • Rotary cutters
  • Mower conditioners
  • Flail mowers
  • Balers
  • Soil stabilizing
  • Power harrow
  • Vegetable bed formers
  • Muck spreaders

 

Transport applications

  • Grain carts or wagons
  • Slurry tanks
  • Implement transport from field to field
  • Pull-type sprayers
  • Extensive operation in hills/roadways

 

This is not intended to be an inclusive list of all applications but shows the wide range of uses for additional engine horsepower.

Power available

IPM provides engine power increase in levels proportional to the size of the tractor. IPM provides a controlled power boost of up to 26 kW (35 engine hp) to the tractor under the following operating conditions:

  • Tractor moving and PTO under load
  • Transport during acceleration
  • Transport during deceleration

Power increase is not provided under draft applications or non-loaded rear PTO applications. Power increase is only provided when required.

How it works

There are specific operating parameters when IPM functions to boost engine power. It is the "intelligent" part of the system that provides seamless operation while adjusting the engine horsepower depending on how the tractor is being used. For engine horsepower boost activation, the tractor must already be running an application that is using the full power capability of the tractor.

 

PTO activation

Power must be sensed going through the PTO drive clutch by the tractor's electronic systems. The tractor must be moving at least 0.5 km/h (0.3 mph) and PTO consuming moderate power before power boost engages. The speeds shown above, assume lowest possible gear or speed setting and the engine running at 2100 rpm.

 

NOTE:  If the tractor is equipped with a front PTO, additional IPM power will transfer through the front PTO. However, IPM activation is only sensed through the rear PTO. Adequate load must be sensed on the rear PTO in order for IPM to activate.

Tractor compatibility with additional power

IPM has been thoroughly tested by John Deere engineers to be compatible with the base tractor equipment with no impact to reliability. John Deere provides IPM as opposed to unapproved aftermarket devices that boost power without regard to engine, transmission, axles, and drawbar, or hitch capability.

 

This feature provides optimal utilization of tractor components. For example, with PTO operation, power goes through axles to move the tractor along the ground and turn the PTO shaft and implement. Adding power to both of these systems does not overload either one individually. At transport speeds, drive train torque load decreases significantly from levels seen at low field speeds. Adding power at transport does not overload transmissions or axles.

 

Aftermarket devices are not selective when power increases are available. Great amounts of power increase are promised with these devices. Large power changes are not compatible with base tractor equipment. To note, base tractor equipment changes as power increases. Larger parts, like hitches, drawbars, tire size, drive train components, axle diameters, and engine calibrations for emission performance and cooling, ensure durability of the total vehicle as power increases. Operating outside of the design capabilities of the tractor base equipment will have an impact on durability and reliability.

 

 

Transport activation

 

When in transport applications, power transition is smooth. The engine will respond seamlessly as load changes, such as when going up and down hills. Additional power is available at a useful working speed with minor differences between tractor models and transmissions.

 

The minimum ground speed is where additional power will begin to be applied, assuming the engine is already fully loaded. Ramp up to full additional power occurs as speed continues to increase. Full additional power occurs within a 3 mph (5 km/h) band.

 

Transport during acceleration: power boost occurs in steps through the range from 23 km/h – 28 km/h (14.3 mph – 17.4 mph).

Transport during deceleration: power boost ramps down in equal steps in the range from 23 km/h – 18 km/h (14.3 mph – 11.2 mph).

Power boost levels other than at rated rpm

Some operators will run the tractor at full loads and/or run transmissions in auto mode in transport. This means that the engine most likely will not be operating at rated rpm. As the engine is loaded, it will eventually drop off of rated rpm and use the power bulge as rpm slows. This is the way every John Deere PowerTech™ Plus engine operates when it is loaded to maximum power and torque.

Usable rpm range of operation (8345R shown)Usable rpm range of operation (8345R shown)

IPM (shown in purple in chart above versus standard power shown in blue) provides additional engine horsepower from rated engine speed down to approximately 1600 rpm (shown on the x-axis in image above, with power kilowatt shown in the y-axis), which is peak engine torque.

 

Horsepower levels are increased above base equipment power bulge values.

 

If the PTO is engaged and the engine rpm stays near rated speed of 2100 rpm, the full additional power potential for the tractor model will be available for use to handle additional load from the implement or changing terrain.

 

If the PTO is not in use and in transport operation and the rpm has dropped off of rated speed, usable additional power boost of IPM will taper off as rpm decreases. The chart above (with 8345R Tractor power curves) shows the relationship of how much additional usable horsepower is available in the operating range. All tractors operate in a similar manner with this feature.

Operator visibility and control of operation
Engine power displayEngine power display

All tractors have the power meter display function as base equipment. The operator can observe when full capabilities of the tractor are being utilized. This function graphically displays power utilization up to rated horsepower and power bulge.

 

The power meter can be found in the CommandCenter™ display. If the engine is off or has minimal load, the power meter will not fill in. The meter is similar in concept to a cellular phone's signal-strength meter. As the power increases, it will fill in bars in an icon. The display will also show the level of additional power being used. The long section represents up to the rated power. The smaller section represents power bulge and is an indicator of additional power available with IPM.

 

Via the CommandCenter, there is also the ability to enable or disable the function. The operator's manual provides simple details about navigating the engine screen.

 

IPM is automatically enabled each time the tractor is started.

This coupler is required for correct attachment to current-production seeding products with case drain lines.

Hydraulic motor return couplers

The hydraulic motor return couplers can be used as couplers for return oil flow, from hydraulic orbital motors and other devices to the tractor's low-pressure return port, labeled R on the tractor.

 

Use of this connector specifically in the return to sump port position is for hydraulic components that require a leak-off line connection to the tractor. Components and implements that require this typically are larger orbital motors that require a drain for seal protection. The connector in the sump port is not to be used to carry return flow from a function to the tractor.

Power beyond couplers

Power beyond provides live hydraulic power to equipment. This kit supplies oil pressure to implements when the engine is running.

 

Any implement using power beyond must have a way to control oil flow. Use an independent control valve that is pressure-and-flow compensating (supplied separately) to control the oil flow rate from this coupler set. Power-beyond functions require a load-sense signal to regulate pump pressure, therefore, a load-sense hydraulic line is used. Certain equipment may require modification.

For installing tractor case drain for vacuum motors. A motor seal drain kit (return to sump) protects the motor and shaft seal by allowing motor housing pressure to return back to hydraulic reservoir free of any back pressure. Handles up to 3 U.S. gallons per minute.

 

NOTE: All vacuum planters built after 1 May 2004 have hydraulic case drain vacuum motors. These motors have a flush-face case drain hose tip on the return oil line that must be routed to the tractor's sump/case drain port. The tractor requires a case drain coupler be installed in this port to accept the return hose. 

 

This kit is required for operation of 1910 Commodity Air Cart and 1990 CCSTM hydraulically-driven fan.

This kit is for converting the hydraulic motor return port to a quick-connect port for fast connections. It includes a plastic snap cover to keep the port clean while not in use.

Lighting

Xenon HID lights improve nighttime visibility
HID lights HID lights

John Deere has taken advantage of advanced lighting technology. This lighting provides the operator with industry-leading performance in nighttime visibility.

The important part of the system is the use of Xenon high-intensity discharge (HID) bulbs. These bulbs provide extreme brightness and a daylight color output for excellent definition of the field. The performance of this system allows the operator to easily view as much as 250 percent farther ahead, compared to previous tractors. A further benefit is there are no filaments in the HID bulb. Bulb life is increased by as much as 10 times vs. filament-style bulbs.

Standard lightingStandard lighting
FieldVision lightingFieldVision lighting
Front FieldVision lighting
Front HID locationsFront HID locations
Roof lighting locationRoof lighting location

The front lighting package adds three high-intensity discharge (HID) lights to the front grille (see 1 in the image above). To further enhance all-around tractor lighting, there are two additional 65-W halogen work lights added to the left- and right-hand cab roof.

 

The center of the bulb has a semi-spot lens, and the outer light housings have a flood lens. In row-crop, the operator will notice there is a longer beam of light in the center for following marker furrows. The overall width of the lighting pattern for a non-row-crop operation will be obvious so tilled or seeded passes are easily identified. The inner, larger-diameter light assemblies are used for road transport and use conventional halogen 60-/55-W H4 bulbs. These larger light housings are also used in the base lighting system. With the dual-wattage H4 bulb, the operator will notice that there is a true automotive-style high/low function when operating in the road position.

 

The cab roof lights can be adjusted to aim to the side or rear of the tractor.

Rear FieldVision lighting
Rear FieldVision HID lightingRear FieldVision HID lighting

The premium HID lighting package (code 1720) adds two adjustable-position HID lights on the rear fenders.

 

Unlike aftermarket lights where the operating ballast is integral, these lights use a smaller housing with remote-mounted ballast.  The smaller housing decreases obstruction for a clear view looking out the rear window.  Using the light’s wide-angle flood lens will make it much easier to monitor the widest or longest equipment available.

Front roof-mounted floodlightsFront roof-mounted floodlights
Side roof-mounted floodlightsSide roof-mounted floodlights

Nighttime visibility can be improved on tractors with two roof-mounted front floodlights or two roof-mounted side floodlights.
