TAS Country : December 9th 2010
24 Tasmanian Country Friday, December 10, 2010 John Deere range gains traction on Tassie farms UTILITY tractors ranging from 45 to 105 horsepower have many uses for prop- erty owners, commercial operators, government maintenance fleets and livestock and farm oper- ations. To better serve the di- verse requirements of these different type cus- tomers, John Deere intro- duced a new line of utility tractors: the 5D, 5E, 5E Limited and 5M Series. These new tractors are designed to perform any application, with any im- plement, within any budget to meet the needs of any customer in the utility tractor market. ''This is the most com- plete line of utility tractors we've ever offered,'' says dealer principal of Mid- land Tractors Tasmania, James Darcey. ''John Deere has de- signed these tractors to meet the requirements of many different customers with many different appli- cations and we're provid- ing a wide array of options to bring the optimal con- figuration and horsepower to their operation.'' The 5D and 5E Series range in horsepower from 45 to 75 and offer John Deere reliability and dura- bility at very economical prices. The 5D Series is only offered with a two- wheel-drive axle compared with the 5E which offers mechanical-front-wheel- drive configurations. These open station tractors feature synchronized transmissions designed for smooth shifting and easy- to-reach, colour-coded con- trols for simple operation. Low on the frills and price, but high on dura- bility and performance, these tractors provide a simple, economical sol- ution that's just right for many customers. ''The more powerful 5E Limited Series Tractors range in horsepower from 83-101 engine hp. These units have more deluxe features including a cab, PowerReverser trans- mission, wet traction clutch, and MFWD axle --- all in base equipment,'' explains James. ''We've packaged the 5E Limited Series to offer select per- formance and comfort- enhancing features at a very low price.'' The 5M Series Tractors range in horsepower from 65 to 105 engine hp. These higher-end machines fea- ture new transmissions, increased lift capacities, more stability for larger implements, and a new operator environment for increased comfort and pro- ductivity. ''For customers who de- mand premium perform- ance and comfort, the 5M Series, which ranges in engine horsepower from 65 to 105, is designed to be the benchmark for quality and durability in the utility tractor marketplace. These tractors offer a vast array of options and horsepower levels.'' For more information: midlandtractors.com or Montrose 6273 6080 Longford 6391 2922 Latrobe 6426 1666.
