John Deere has added a new 130 horsepower model to its 5M tractor range, as part of its 2023 model update.
The John Deere 5130M joins the 5075M, 5095M, 5105M and 5120M in the 5M range, promising to deliver more technology, more transmission options and top-end horsepower. All tractors in the 5M range are powered by John Deere’s proven FT4 PowerTech engines. The 5130M also comes standard with PowrQuad Plus and Powr8 transmission, helping operators better handle large implements in the paddock. John Deere Australia/New Zealand production system manager Stephanie Gersekowski said the transmission options can help make an operator’s tasks smoother. “PowrQuad PLUS and Powr8 transmissions make it easy for operators to find the right speed with clutchless, push-button shifting between gears, allowing them to focus on their work,” Gersekowski said. “The hitch-lift capacity on 5M tractors equipped with PowrQuad PLUS and Powr8 transmissions has also been increased, to better handle large implements. “These features are especially beneficial when lifting and moving large objects such as hay bales and can increase operator productivity and safety.” The transmission options are also available additions for the 5095M, 5105M and 5120M cab models. All models with PowrReverser, PowrQuad PLUS and Powr8 transmissions will benefit from 1000RPM PTO for larger implements. Inside the cab is a built-in display that features integrated AutoTrac guidance, helping to boost efficiency by reducing overlap. “AutoTrac provides operators with straight-line guidance to help reduce implement overlap, to save on fuel and decrease fatigue,” Gersekowski said. “No other utility tractor on the market offers this level of integrated guidance on a mid-spec utility tractor, meaning the 5M provides unmatched productivity potential.” The new cab also features a panoramic roof offering improved visibility for the operator. The redefined MY23 John Deere 5M tractors will be available to order later this year. For more information, contact your local AFGRI Equipment today.
