John Deere 5075GL

John Deere introduces the 5075GL Specialty Tractor for orchard and vineyard growers who want a powerful, low and narrow tractor to maintain and harvest their crops. With 75 engine horsepower, there’s plenty of power to pull flail mowers, rotary cutters, spray tanks and trimming equipment, and to push harvest bins in hilly terrain.

“This is a great addition to the John Deere high value crop tractor lineup,” says Justin Cherry, marketing manager for John Deere specialty tractors. “The small stature of the 5075GL helps growers harvest their crop with less damage to trees, vines and fruit, enabling higher yields and a larger return on their investment.”

John Deere W170 Windrower

To meet the demands of small grain customers growing high-yielding canola varieties, John Deere introduces its smart, powerful W170 Windrower and a wide range of draper headers to make swathing faster and easier in heavy crop and hilly conditions.

“During benchmarking studies in heavy crop conditions, the W170 Windrower showed an impressive 20 percent productivity gain,” Nick McKelvey, John Deere marketing manager for windrowers, says. “With 46 inches (116.8 cm) of ground clearance and 12-inch (30.48 cm) wider walking beams, tall windrows can flow easily beneath the machine’s frame and are corralled by a new swath compressor. The swath compressor forms loose crop into a tight, uniform windrow, making it easier for a combine to pick up, eliminating the need for a canola roller.”
