Deere’s debutants at the Royal Highland Show


John Deere’s new 5R Series and 8400R tractors are making their Royal Highland Show debut on the John Deere stand on Avenue S from 22nd to 25th June.
The new 400hp 8400R tractor recently set three new world records for fuel efficiency (field and transport) and maximum drawbar performance at the DLG test station in Germany. It beat its nearest competitors by almost 23 per cent in drawbar performance and lowered the combined fluid consumption figure for field work to only 247g/kWh.
This translates into six per cent higher pulling capacity and a reduction in fuel consumption of up to two per cent compared to the previous top of the range 8370R model, enabling wider implements to be used to increase productivity and maximise total fluid efficiency.
Powered by a new John Deere 9-litre Stage IV compliant engine and featuring an e23 transmission with Efficiency Manager, the 8400R delivers up to 450hp with Intelligent Power Management (IPM). This tractor is also fitted as standard with JDLink telematics, including remote display access (RDA) and wireless data transfer (WDT) linked to the website portal.
The compact 5R Series tractors from 90 to 125hp feature a one-piece curved frame design with a low centre of gravity and a turning radius of only 3.75m, even when fitted with a front loader such as the new 543R. Features include front axle suspension and an air suspended seat, plus an optional cab suspension system.
This range’s Stage IIIB 4.5-litre John Deere PWX diesel-only four-cylinder engine produces 10 extra hp for transport applications. Three transmission options include the new 32/16 Command8, with eight powershiftable gears and an ECO mode enabling a top speed of 40kph at only 1759 engine rpm, plus automatic shifting as standard.
Equipped with higher power, Stage IV compliant John Deere engines featuring low diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) consumption, the new T-Series combines can deliver up to 15 per cent more output compared to previous models. This is due to the large active separation and cleaning shoe area, paired with the unique crop flow of the combine’s multi-drum/straw walker design concept.
