The 5M tractor series builds on the successful predecessor 5M models, but with important improvement to many details. All in the interest of meeting your needs. With a 5M tractor, you can expect: Efficiency, manoeuvrability, compactness and outstanding visibility in the extra spacious cab. You are unlikely to find a more efficient tractor in this class.



16F/16R PowrReverser™ transmission is ideal for demanding applications

The PowrReverser transmission provides 16 forward speeds and 16 reverse speeds. This transmission comes standard with shiftable 540/540 Economy power take-off (PTO), and is ideal for operators using their tractors to perform in demanding applications and who require additional operating speed ranges.

Hydraulic wet forward and reverse clutches maximize durability and outlast the life of any dry clutch. When tractors are run by multiple operators with a variety of experience levels, a wet clutch is the best way to maintain transmission integrity and performance while decreasing clutch replacement costs.

Two platform-mounted levers offer easy and comfortable shifting for a pleasant operator experience. The gear-shift lever is easy to reach and the less-used range lever is now shorter.


Deluxe open operator station (DOOS) offers a smooth, spacious operating experience

The fully isolated design of the deluxe open operator station (DOOS) reduces vibration and noise, and keeps the operator comfortable throughout the workday. It also improves ride and visibility. Platform-mounted shift levers and suspended clutch and brake pedals contribute to a clean platform design and make it easier for the operator to get on and off the tractor.


Debris deflectors, fender extensions, fender-mounted work lights, and floor mats are base equipment on the deluxe isolated open operator station. Controls are spaced out for clear and concise execution by the operator.


Color-coded bands on the selective control valve (SCV) levers correspond with the color on the rear SCVs, making it easy for any operator to determine which lever operates which rear SCV.


Climate-controlled cabs achieve the smoothest, quietest operating experience for increased performance

The operator of a 5M Series cab will appreciate the reduction in noise and vibration through the seat, steering wheel, and lever controls with a rollover protective structure (ROPS) certified, factory-installed cab. The cabs are assembled to the tractor chassis as a complete unit and mounted on composite isolators.

The complete cab assembly includes the floor and steering column. Having this type of fully isolated cab, greatly reduces noise levels inside the cab. It also creates a more sealed environment so the amount of airborne particles entering the cab, such as dust and pollen, are greatly reduced.


The ceiling control panel is located on the upper right side, and the air-conditioner components are located on the upper-rear corners of the cab where visibility is not as critical. This provides the operator with visibility to the loader at a height unmatched by any competitor.

John Deere PowerTech™ 4-cylinder diesel engines create outstanding performance, durability, and the best operating experience

John Deere-designed and -manufactured diesel engines provide excellent torque, fuel efficiency, and durability.

Turbocharged engines supply more air to the combustion chamber since the air is pre-compressed. The increased amount of air allows a corresponding increase in fuel injection which results in greater engine performance.


The heavy-duty cylinder block provides greater strength and rigidity, which is what allows these tractors to perform in ditches, ravines, and other less-than-ideal conditions.  Cylinder liners dissipate heat to prevent cylinder distortion and rapid ring wear, allowing operators to see consistent performance.


Hitch, lower link draft sensing

Draft sensing allows the hitch to quickly raise or lower, as needed, to control the load on the engine. It also reduces the need to downshift into a lower gear when operating in a rough spot to eliminate a more complicated operating experience. The draft response is adjustable using the draft control lever to match the operating conditions and implement being used.


The lower link draft sense utilizes the draft links to instantaneously sensor the load information coming from the implement and delivers it to the hitch control mechanism for fast, smooth, and accurate hitch corrections.


The operator selects the rear hitch load setting by adjusting the draft-sense control knob. Depending on field conditions, it can be changed on the go.

5M hydraulic capacities can meet the needs of demanding tasks

5M Series Tractors feature an open-center hydraulic system plumbed identically on each tractor. The 3-point hitch has priority over all the hydraulic control valves, so an operator can raise an implement at the end of a pass to turn, without having to turn the remote hydraulics off.


The high-flow rate of the 5M Series, combined with the system’s 2828-psi (195 bar) pressure, achieves excellent hydraulic performance and capacity. High loader breakout force is attained, so every drive into the feed pile results in a full bucket.


Fast cycle times result in time saved when operators are moving material; operators won’t have to waste time while the loader bucket dumps. The system supplies plenty of flow for running hydraulic motors, which is one more example of the versatility available with the 5M Series Tractors.


All 5M tractors with a PowrReverser™ transmission come standard with a hydraulic oil cooler to handle increased power train and hydraulic requirements.


AutoTrac™ Universal

The AutoTrac™ Universal (ATU) 200 steering kit is a machine steering kit used for automatic guidance in John Deere and non-John Deere machines. Pair the machine kit with a complete GreenStar™ system to operate automatic, hands-free guidance in approved machine platforms.


AutoTrac offers many benefits to operators, including optimized machine efficiency, reduced operator fatigue, and the ability to work at faster speeds. The ATU 200 is the premier universal steering system in the agricultural industry.
