The new 5ML Tractor Series from John Deere

Published On: December 9, 2022

With the new 5ML Series, which includes the flagship 5130ML, John Deere introduces its most intelligent and powerful narrow tractors for use in high-value crops to date. The 5ML tractors can be equipped with a comprehensive John Deere technology package for precision farming and deliver a maximum output of 134 hp.

Smart – Precision farming for high value crops          

To make working with specialty crops easier, the 5ML offers a comprehensive John Deere technology package for precision farming. A unique feature is the integrated AutoTracTM guidance system. The AutoTracTM display has been integrated directly into the tractor’s dashboard, eliminating the need for an additional activation or display. Above all, this saves additional costs.

Strong – The strongest of the narrow John Deere tractors       

The John Deere PowerTech Plus engine in the new 5130 ML is a 4.5-litre four-cylinder with a solid torque rise of 30% and a maximum output of 134 hp. The mechanical PowerQuad Plus transmission has four of the optionally available Powr8 transmission eight power shiftable gears.

The 5ML not only impresses with its engine power, but also with its hydraulic output of 117 l/min. This allows implements with high hydraulic power requirements to be connected directly to the tractor hydraulics without the need for an externally PTO-driven hydraulic pump

A special feature is the outstanding lift capacity of the 5ML, which totals 4900 kg at the ball ends of the rear hydraulics. At the front hydraulics it is 2900 kg, with a payload of 3500 kg. Combining a high payload with maximum lifting capacity enables the attachment of large implements, which increases the effectiveness and productivity.

Safety and comfort of use  

The 5ML’s cab is equipped with an electronic joystick and a large LCD display in the dashboard. This provides an excellent overview of the tractor settings and increases operator comfort. The electronic joystick makes it easy and convenient to control implements. With the iTec headland management function, the driver is noticeably relieved by the automation of the work processes when turning at the headland. The category 4 cab filter system (according to EN 15695) integrated into the roof of the driver’s cab is available as an option and provides protection against dust, aerosols and vapours that are hazardous to health.

The 5ML tractors can be ordered from January 2023.
