John Deere is now introducing the new 5090EL and 5125ML tractors, expanding its lineup of specialty tractors. In addition, the company will be making upgrades to the 5100ML and 5115ML low-profile tractors.
“For tree-fruit or -nut growers, 5ML Low-Profile Tractors offer increased hitch-lift capacity and increased cooling capacity that rivals larger utility tractors,” said John Doyle, 5M Tractor product manager for John Deere. “These improvements, combined with precise gear selection and ergonomically placed fender-mounted controls, provide an enhanced operator experience, increased productivity and industry-leading maneuverability.”
The new 5090EL tractor has a low stance and it is built on the John Deere 5E 4-cylinder platform. Because it has a height of only 69 inches, it can easily fit through doorways and other small areas. However, it still packs a punch with 90 engine horsepower.
“A John Deere PowrReverser Transmission lets operators change direction without clutching – making the 5090EL very user friendly and ideal for loader work,” said Justin Cherry, 5E product manager for John Deere. “The built-in versatility these tractors offer make them a great choice to handle common hay and livestock jobs around the farm.”
The new 5125ML is equipped with John Deere’s PowrQuad Transmission, which was previously only available on larger tractors. Gear changes can be made at the push of a button and no clutching is required.
