Experience the ultimate in comfort with the Ultimate Comfort and Convenience package
The Ultimate Comfort and Convenience package offers unsurpassed visibility, operator comfort, control placement, and ride and sound quality.
Get 360 degrees of coverage for maximum productivity with visibility packages
Visibility is one of the most important attributes of the cab. While lighting is a large portion of that, features like windshield wipers, mirrors, sunshades, and cameras are also important to overall visibility. Three visibility packages are available on 7 and 8 Series Tractors.
The LED lights provide 40 percent greater coverage width and 10 percent more light coverage in the rear.
ActiveSeat™ II seat provides a smoother ride
The John Deere Active Seat II utilises an electrical control system to control the vertical seat top movement. The “active” control system minimises vertical seat top acceleration by sensing vertical tractor inputs and actively positioning the seat top to cancel those inputs. This results in a significantly smoother ride for the operator.
Efficiency and comfort in the palm of your hand using CommandPRO™ control
The unique driving strategy is designed to deliver highest performance in combination with operator comfort making the daily work much easier and efficient.
- Unique inching control
- Three easily adjustable travel set speeds
- Two engine set speeds
- Three acceleration response settings.
Unsurpassed gains in productivity with Independent-Link Suspension (ILS™)
The John Deere ILS utilises industry-leading technology to supply unsurpassed gains to end-user productivity. This innovative design incorporates proven suspension design with mechanical front-wheel drive (MFWD) axle components that use state-of-the-art technology specifically for heavy equipment usage. Operators do not have to worry about turning ILS on/off since the John Deere advanced electronic management system knows when to disengage ILS automatically.
The ILS system gets more power to the ground because the front tyres maintain ground contact pressure. This improves field and transport ride plus increases ballasting flexibility and drastically decreases the tendency to power hop.
Hydraulic pump options to meet varying flow requirements
All 8 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 and 8RX Tractors. The dual-pump system provides a hydraulic flow of 318 L/min (84 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 engine rpm with a 318-L/min (84-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 engine rpm.
