John Deere and Cummins have partnered to provide customers with a reliable, productive and efficient engine solution in the X15.Extensive work has been done between John Deere and Cummins on software development and other engine/tractor application interface points to provideproducers with the performance and efficiency they have come to expect from John Deere.

The X15 has followed the same building block approach to meet emissions requirements as similar John Deere engines.This allows John Deere to provide common technologies toproducers throughout different horsepower and engine displacement offerings ensuring a consistent experience for producers. Just like the other two engine offerings in the 9 Family of tractors, the X15 features exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and an exhaust aftertreatment combination of a diesel particulate filter (DPF) and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) to meet the near-zero NOx and particulate matter (PM) emissions standards.

X15 technology

XPI fuel system
– the XPI common-rail fuel system delivers a precise quantity of fuel at ultra-high pressures. This, together with electronic engine controls, enables multiple injection events per cycle. Flexibility in injection timing increases fuel economy and performance while decreasing exhaust emissions.

VGT turbocharger – the X15 utilizes a single Cummins VGT™ turbocharger which features electric actuation for infinite adjustment.

Cooled EGR –system has been rebalanced for use with SCR, reducing flow volume and minimizing diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) consumption levels.

Fully integrated electronic controls –a single electronic control module (ECM) controls everything from air intake to exhaust aftertreatment.

Cummins particulate filter andSCR – Cummins particulate filter operates as a nearly passive device, with minimal regeneration required.

9R/9RT e18™ with Efficiency Manager™

Efficiency Manager thumbwheelEfficiency Manager thumbwheel
Efficiency Manager switchEfficiency Manager switch

What is it?

Efficiency Manager allows for operation like an IVT™ on the 18-speed PowerShift™ transmission. WithEfficiency Managerengaged, the operator no longer has to manage the engine revolutions per minutes (rpm) and gear selection for the most efficient level of operation possible. Efficiency Manager does that automatically by shifting up and throttling back depending on the load on the tractor.

How does it work?

With the tractor sitting still, in neutral, or once the tractor is in motion, the operator simply pushes either the F1 or F2 switch on the CommandARM™ to activate the feature. OnceEfficiency Manageris activated, the operator can set and adjust the desired ground speed by using the thumbwheel on the shift lever. An icon and the desired ground speed will appear on the corner post display onceEfficiency Manageris activated.

The operator can program two ground speeds by pushing either the F1 or F2 switch. The F1 setting will typically be set for field work while the F2 setting will be used for field/road transport. F1 can be set at any speed from 3.2 km/h (2 mph) to 20.3 km/h (12.6 mph), and F2 can be set at any speed from 3.2 km/h (2 mph) to 40 km/h (25 mph).

Can it be managed by the operator?

By navigating through the CommandCenter™, the operator can adjust therpm shift points while operating in custom mode. The operator can set it to automatic or custom. In automatic mode, the tractor will predict the optimum shift points under load to maintain the highest level of performance and operation. Custom mode allows the operator to adjust how high or low he/she would like the enginerpm to pull down before shifting under load. See the operator’s manual for more information.

Operation example:

If operating a 9R equipped with the 18-speed PowerShift transmission on a grain cart, the operator could set F1 to the same speed as the combine for an unload, on-the-go scenario. Once the combine is empty and the 9R operator is ready to unload the grain from the cart onto the truck, he/she could push the F2 switch (already set at a higher transport speed) to get to the truck quicker.

NOTE:Efficiency Manageris not recommended during for use during high draft load applications.John Deeredoes not recommend the use ofEfficiency Manager during the cut cycle in scraper applications.Efficiency Manageris recommended during the transport cycle of scraper applications.

To help boost productivity, a field-installed kit with 3-point hitch controls can be purchased. If this option is selected, control buttons will be located on the 9 Series Tractor’s CommmandARM to access individual hitch settings. There are three buttons — set, lock, and load depth. There is also a rotary encoder that allows for finite movements of the hitch. The rotary encoder is detented, so it clicks for each movement. Additionally, hitch adjustment controls are located under the CommandARM for raise/lower rate.

Hitch load depth

The load depth feature is a useful tool designed to increase performance in tillage applications.Load depth adjustments allow the operator to make adjustments to hitch draft responsiveness.

Draft control helps maintain the operating depth in varying conditions, such as rolling terrain, and varying soil densities.

An additional feature with load depth control is the hitch slip option. Hitch slip uses wheel slip data to supplement the draft control system.If the wheels slip, the 3-point hitch lifts to allow the tractor wheels to maintain traction with the ground.Once the slip condition is no longer present, the hitch lowers to the required depth as determined by the hitch command and load depth settings.

Both of these hitch command options are easily programmable in the CommandCenter display by pressing the load depth shortcut key, followed byusing the thumbwheel and confirm key to dial in the desired settings.

Both of these hitch command options are easily programmable in the CommandCenter display by pressing the load depth shortcut key, followed byusing the thumbwheel and confirm key to dial in the desired settings.

Hitch, external remote control switch

For added operator convenience, a 3-point hitch remote control switch is located on top of the left rear fender for 9R, 9RT, and 9RXTractors. The external remote switches enable the operator to raise and lower the 3-point hitch from behind the tractor while hooking to implements.

High-flow hydraulics, 435-L/min (115-gpm) system

Dual hydraulic pump system
Selective control valve (SCV) stackSelective control valve (SCV) stack

Optional high-flow hydraulics are available on 9 Series Tractors by ordering code 3270. The high-flow hydraulic system provides an additional 215 L/min (57 gpm) of flow for a total of 435 L/min (115 gpm). This system is ideal for hydraulic fan motor demands. This system is recommended for agricultural implements with continuous flow requirements. When maximum hydraulic pump capacity is reached, multiple functions will continue to operate at the same proportional flow rate.

The 9 Series Ag High-Flow Tractors have two parallel hydraulic systems. The benefit of this system is that functions can be split between the two systems. Functions that require high flow and low pressure can be combined on one system (for example, air seeder fans, and planter motors). Functions that require high pressure and low-flow can be connected to the remaining system (for example, implement lift, fold, and constant down-pressure systems).

Following these guidelines allows the hydraulic system to run cooler as it prevents both hydraulic pumps from running at high pressure. In general, pumps forced to run at both high pressure and high flows generate much more heat than a pump running at a lower flow or lower pressure.

The system operates with two hydraulic pumps:

  • Pump 1 - provides hydraulic flow of up to215 L/min (58 gpm) to SCVs 1, 2, and 3. These SCVs are useful for operating lift/lower and other cylinder type hydraulic needs.
  • Pump 2 - attaches in front of pump 1 and provides hydraulic flow of up to215 L/min (57 gpm) to SCVs 4, 5, and 6. These SCVs are useful for operating hydraulic motors to drive air/fan or vacuum systems on seeding/planting equipment.
  • All SCV oil returns to one common hydraulic reservoir.

For applications requiring continuous high hydraulic flow or multiple 19.1-mm (3/4-in.) hydraulic connections, this SCV stack is designed to maximize efficiency of the hydraulic system while providing additional flow using 19.1-mm (3/4-in.) couplers. Arrangement of the 19.1-mm (3/4-in.) couplers are split between the tractor’s dual hydraulic pumps to even the hydraulic load on each pump. Increasing coupler size from 12.7 mm (1/2 in.) to 19.1 mm (3/4 in.) allows an additional 26.5 L/min (7 gpm) or 17 percent more hydraulic flow through each coupler and reduces backpressure for hydraulic functions such as dual fan motors associated with the Air Power™ 2 system equipped on John Deere C850 Air Carts. With three 19.1-mm (3/4-in.) couplers available, operators can connect to other high-demand functions such asraise/lower. The 19.1-mm (3/4-in.) couplers also allow higher fan motor speeds for high-rate applications and allow more power to the ground due to less restriction on the hydraulic system.

NOTE: This SCV configuration is available on all double-reduction) axle 9420R to 9570R Tractors with high-flow hydraulics and all 9RX Tractors with high-flow hydraulics. This eight-section SCV stack does not include hydraulic Intelligent Power Management (IPM) software.
