John Deere Introduces New 105-hp Orchard Tractor
LENEXA, Kansas .— John Deere introduces the 5105ML Tractor — specifically configured for producers that grow nuts and fruit in orchards. “The 5105ML Tractor is extremely versatile and reliable and it’s compatible with a John Deere 553 or 563 Loader. Its low profile lets customers operate under tree limbs and in between tree rows so it’s ideal for nut and fruit growers. It has plenty of hitch-lift capacity and at 7,700 pounds the 5105ML has additional weight that provides added stability to pull large implements. You won’t find a tractor that works harder or that’s more capable in its class,” says Owen Frederic, John Deere product marketing manager.
The heart of the 5105ML is a reliable John Deere PowerTech™ four-cylinder diesel engine that produces up to 105 engine horsepower (90 PTO hp). Customers can choose from two transmission options for the 5105ML to tailor it to best fit their operation. The transmission options are:
* 12/F/4R SyncShuttle Plus™ Transmission
* 16F/16R PowrReverser™ Transmission with left-hand electro-hydraulic reverser
“The power and weight combination of this tractor helps customers be more productive in a wide variety of applications and conditions. High-reliability, standard components, consists of a wet PTO and wet-traction clutch. These are simple and reliable tractors that are built with a minimal amount of electronics so they’re easy to operate and maintain. Operator comfort is superb and visibility from the seat is outstanding,” says Frederic.
The 5105ML is available in a two-wheel-drive, or four-wheel-drive configuration — and comes equipped with adjustable full-coverage rear fenders, a differential lock, and fuel-saving economy PTO.
“The full-coverage, composite rear fenders protect both low-hanging tree limbs and low-hanging fruit from damage by guiding them over the rear wheels when the tractor is being operated in an orchard. They won’t rust or dent like metal fenders, or crack or shred like fiberglass fenders. They also can be adjusted up or down with five inches of fender travel to accommodate different tire sizes. Rear brake lights are built into the fender,” Frederic says.
Color-coded operator controls are strategically mounted between the right-hand fender and low-profile seat for easy reach, yet hidden from low-hanging branches and fruit. Additional standard equipment consists of dual-rear work lights, breakaway indicator lights, a low-profile tilt/telescoping steering wheel, three hydraulic remotes, and a reinforced fuel tank with protective guarding. The foldable mid-mount ROPS can be lowered without tools when a John Deere Loader is attached for easy maneuverability in low-clearance areas.
The open-center hydraulic system has an 18.4-gpm flow rate for fast hydraulic cycle times and muscle to handle large implements with ease.
