John Deere has added a built-in cab corner-post display to its updated 5R and 6M utility tractors to give customers an easy, cost-effective way to view AutoTrac guidance system information.
AutoTrac enables hands-free steering by using GPS coordinates to control the tractor.
The company says that regardless of an operator’s level of experience, the corner-post display for automated steering is simple to use and understand.
Once a John Deere StarFire Receiver is added, and the AutoTrac activation completed and set up, operators can start using hands-free steering straight away.
Customers seeking more advanced guidance capabilities and precision ag solutions, like Selection Control and on-screen mapping, can still purchase other John Deere displays and activations.
Also announced was the option to choose an Infinitely Variable Transmission (IVT) for selected 6M tractors for operators who want precise speed control or who prefer an automatic transmission.
The IVT includes AutoClutch that operators can use to quickly brake and stop the tractor without using the clutch.
Customers who want to boost hydraulic flow on select 6M tractors to quickly raise and lower or power large implements or attachments now also have an option to choose a hydraulic pump that’s larger than the standard pump.
The updated 5R and 6M Tractors can be ordered immediately.
