TEAM GREEN have announced several model updates for 2019 in the large 9R, 9RT, and 9RX tractors.

John Deere, product manager, large tractors, Tiffany Turner said for the first time a 3.05 metre (120-inch) track spacing option will be available on 9470RX, 9520RX, 9570RX and 9620RX Series Four tractors equipped with 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,” she said.

“A wider stance also makes it easier to perform daily maintenance and service plus it offers hassle-free material cleanout.”

Ms Turner said the option of factory or field-installed hydraulic intelligent power management system was now available on some models. The system boosts tractor performance when operating implements requiring continuous hydraulic power.

“It specifically designed for air seeding operators using large drills and air carts on their farms,” she said. 

Ms Turner said the feature included a dual-pump specific selective control valve, with larger couplers to  allow for an extra 26.5 litre a per minute hydraulic oil flow to reduce restrictions to high demand fan motors on large air carts. 

She said increased hydraulic capacity also made it quicker to raise and lower the frames on large air drills for improved efficiency in the field.

Ms Turner said the hydraulic system will only be available on MY19 9620R and 9620RX models, as it will require a 435 L a minute dual hydraulic pump and is not compatible with a 3-point hitch.

Ms Turner said command centre software would be factory updated to generation four in the 2019 9R, 9RT and 9RX tractors, including Autotrac activation. 

“Autotrac guidance is included in base equipment on these tractors,” she said. 

“Autotrac has been shown to reduce operator fatigue, save fuel by reducing overlap, and help you work more acres in less time.”
