Over the past few months it seems that just about everything has been purchased online and then delivered sight unseen – so why not buy your next tractor the same way
John Deere has made it possible to buy your next tractor online, without kicking a tyre.
It’s all been made possible with the launch of an online tool that helps farmers determine the perfect model for their operation from the John Deere 5 Series Tractor range.
It turns out the John Deere 5 Series is the ideal range to use as a launch pad for the online selector tool as models in this lightweight utility segment cover the most popular engine power from 37 to 93kW (50 to 125hp).
In addition the 17 models in the 5E, 5M and 5R model line-up can be highly customisable and is already one of John Deere’s best-selling model ranges.
John Deere Tactical Segment Marketing Manager, Fraser Scott, said the 5 Series Selector Tool provided a simple and effective way for customers to quickly identify the tractor they need.
“The 5 Series Selector Tool has taken the hard work out of decision making by allowing customers to input key usage data.
“This includes data such as size of property, frequency of loader use, forecasted hours, engine power requirements, drive type, transmission preferences and a range of precision agriculture and other requirements to determine the right tractor for the right job.”
Increased power within the range has given the John Deere 5 Series greater capabilities to take it from the entry-level 5E through to the 5R that is equipped with powerful, durable options with embedded technology for larger or more complex operations.
“The 5 Series options are extensive and allow the line-up to achieve performance and efficiency in many farm working environments, from hauling out at harvest to mowing, spraying, feeding and general property maintenance,” Mr Scott said.
The 5E range offer a reliable engine, with the operator able to choose between a comfortable cab or an open station.
There’s also two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive options to suit a range of terrain, while models in the 5E range vary in engine power from 37 to 69 kW (50 – 93 hp).
For a lighter and more nimble option, customers prefer the 5R. It can handle a 4.15 tonnes payload and has up to 5.7 tonnes rear lift capacity, at the hooks.
The 5R offers from 67 to 93kW (90 to125hp) of power and includes the latest in John Deere technology with features like CommandARM and AutoTrac automatic steering.
Operators will also benefit from the low hood, which can be coupled with the optional panorama roof, to provide the ultimate visibility, as well as offering outstanding comfort as a result of the front axle and cab suspension.
Farmers purchasing a new 5 Series tractor have the added incentive of five months with no repayments, and 0% per annum Finance* Available over 48 months.
This is coupled with the Australian Taxation Office’s extension of the Instant Asset Write-off† scheme.
With so many customisation options within the 5 Series, that the online tool makes perfect sense.
