John Deere has announced updates to its 9R, 9RT, and 9RX tractors for the 2019 model year.
Deere will now offer a 120-inch (3.05 m) track spacing option on 9470RX, 9520RX, 9570RX and 9620RX Series Four Track Ag Tractors equipped with 30- and 36-inch (76.2 cm and 91.4 cm) tracks.
“The extra wide stance of this machine is ideal for customers wanting to control traffic patterns and enhanced stability on hilly terrain,” says Tiffany Turner, product marketing manager, large tractors for John Deere. “A wider stance also makes it easier to perform daily maintenance and service plus it offers hassle-free material cleanout.”
Deere will also offer the option of a factory- or field-installed Hydraulic Intelligent Power Management system to boost tractor performance when operating implements requiring continuous hydraulic power.
A dual-pump specific selective control valve has eight total SCVs – three, with three-quarter-inch (1.9 cm) SCVs; and five, with half-inch (1.3 cm) SCVs. The larger couplers allow for an extra 7 gallons (26.5 L) per minute hydraulic oil flow to reduce restrictions to high demand fan motors on large air carts. The increased hydraulic capacity will also make it quicker for producers to raise and lower the frames on large air drills.
Hydraulic IPM is compatible with model year 2015 John Deere 9620R Ag Tractors and 2016 9620RX Ag Tractors. It requires a 115-gallon (435 L) per minute dual hydraulic pump and is not compatible with a 3-point hitch.
A factory-installed Generation 4 CommandCenter 18-1 Software update is also included as base equipment for model year 2019 on John Deere 9R, 9RT and 9RX Tractors.
