Steering

The steering system uses load sensing of hydraulic pressure required to efficiently complete the designated tasks. The pressure- and flow- compensating pump produces excellent stationary or creeping ground speed steering response to handle demanding applications.

ActiveCommand Steering (ACS™)
7R in transport7R in transport
#

With ACS, John Deere has designed one of the most robust and full-encompassing steering system in the industry. Whether in the field or on the road, ACS reduces steering effort, which can result in reduced operator fatigue and can improve operator comfort.
 
There are four key features of the ACS system:

Dynamic road wheel offset

  • A gyroscope senses tractor yaw and can automatically make small steering adjustments to provide unprecedented line-holding abilities. Drive down a bumpy road and experience how ACS makes it easier to keep the tractor straight, even over rough terrain.  ACS delivers the ultimate in comfort.
  • ACS works to prevent oversteering when a sudden obstacle causes the operator to make a quick steering reaction.

Variable ratio steering

  • Approximately 3.5 turns lock to lock at in-field speeds for quick headland turns.
  • Approximately 5 turns lock to lock at transport speeds.

Elimination of steering slop and hand wheel drift

  • Steering wheel drift and slop are eliminated with the ACS electronic control system.

Variable effort steering

  • Steering wheel resistance automatically changes with ground speed to deliver light steering effort at slower speeds for less effort during headland turns, and higher steering wheel torque at transport speeds for better operator comfort.
A fail operational system

The ACS system is fail operational, which means steering is still functional in the event of any single-point failure. John Deere has gone to great lengths to help ensure the operator can steer the tractor if something goes wrong in the steering system.
 
For example, if the primary controller fails, a second controller takes over. If power from the alternator is lost, the battery resumes control. If the engine quits running and is unable to supply hydraulic oil to the system, an electric-driven backup pump is used to supply the oil.

ACS componentsACS components
#

The ACS system consists of several key components:

  1. Gyroscope: this is used to measure the yaw rate (turn rate) of the tractor during transport speeds.
  2. Road-wheel angle sensors: these sensors simply measure the steer angle of the tractor.
  3. Power supply module: this module distributes the power of the battery and alternator throughout the ACS system.
  4. Hand-wheel angle sensors and tactile feedback unit: this includes the steering wheel position sensors and a brake, which can increase or decrease resistance dependent on speed. Lighter feedback is desired during normal field use, and slightly heavier feedback is desired during transport and while the tractor is cornering at high speeds.
  5. Controllers: two controllers are located in the back of the tractor and are the brains of the system.
  6. Control valves: also known as steering valves, control valves are used to steer the tractor.
  7. Electric-drive backup pump: this pump supplies oil to the steering system, brakes, and park brakes (for towing) if there is no longer a sufficient oil supply to the steering and brakes.

7R Series Tractor with front hitch7R Series Tractor with front hitch
#

The 7R Series Tractors offer two front hitch options to best fit a variety of applications.

Standard (non-ground-engaging) hitch option for applications including, but not limited to:

  • Front-mounted mowers, toppers, and snow blowers
  • Carrying front seed hoppers and plow packers
  • Carrying front ballast
  • Operating light-draft implements

Premium (ground-engaging) hitch option for applications including, but not limited to:

  • Operating primary tillage equipment and standard blades 

Premium hitches include a push bar and heavier lift arms:

  • Hitches with zero front auxiliary valves include one mid-mount valve.
  • Hitches with one front auxiliary valve include two mid-mount valves.
  • Hitches with two front auxiliary valves include three mid-mount valves.

To ensure adequate hydraulic availability, up to two selective control valves (SCVs) can be included with a front hitch.

Joystick controlJoystick control
Paddle pot SCVPaddle pot SCV

Tractors equipped with a factory front hitch have the option of selecting a joystick control or paddle pot SCV controls. The joystick control is not compatible with the sixth rear electrohydraulic SCV because of the CommandARM™ controls space required for the front hitch joystick.

**Equals weight of added hitch components.

 

The integrated and styled compact hitch design maintains full maneuverability even with the larger front tires. The hitch extends only 55-mm (2.2-in.) ahead of the front support when the arms are folded.

Standard (carrier version) hitches can be converted to a premium (ground-engaging) hitch by ordering and field installing a conversion kit that includes push bar and heavier lift arms.

All factory-installed front hitches are capable of single- and dual-acting hydraulic cylinder modes. This allows the operator the flexibility to choose the correct mode for a variety of front hitch applications. Single acting provides hydraulic force for retracting the front hitch cylinders and allows front implements to follow the contour of the ground or surface. For example, this would be the correct mode for a front-mounted snow blower. Dual acting provides hydraulic force in retracting and extending the front hitch cylinders to provide down force for ground-engaging implements.

 

Additional hitch features include:

  • Integrated and protected routing of oil lines
  • Category 3 top link with storage position
  • Integrated towing clevis with pin
  • Compatible with group 42 - 44 front tires
7R position sensing7R position sensing
#

The 7R with front hitch comes equipped with position sensing that allows operators the ability to establish an upper height limit set point and lower limit set point through CommandCenter™ display.  Position sensing maintains the height of the hitch arms based on the set points.
 
Position sensing provides the following benefits:

  • Add to iTEC™ display sequence (raise/lower set points)
  • Limit height for front-PTO implement (stay within desirable driveline angles)
  • Set lower position for ground-engaging depth or blade position
  • Maintain set height without added fixed link (position will auto correct)
  • Prevent inadvertent hitch operation outside of desired range of motion (takes guesswork out of placing height of front implement)
  • Less fatiguing for repetitive-type work where the same position is required over and over

For a 9-pin connector, order kit RE322555. The kit includes all necessary components and allows ISO implement communication.

 

NOTE: 7R Series Tractors with a factory-installed front hitch do not ship with a front weight support.

Triple-Link Suspension Plus (TLS™ Plus)
7R with TLS Plus7R with TLS Plus
#

The optional TLS Plus is a fully integrated, self-leveling front suspension system available on 7R Series Tractors equipped with the 1300 mechanical front-wheel drive (MFWD) axle. TLS Plus provides exclusive front suspension using a hydro-pneumatic self-leveling system to increase productivity and improve ride dramatically. TLS Plus provides more control over the front suspension of the tractor.

 

CommandCenter screenCommandCenter screen
#

In the Generation 4 CommandCenter™, the operator is able to select maximum pressure to accommodate for the transfer of heavy loads with minimal front axle movement.

 

TLS Plus increases both transport and field productivity with superior stability, ride, and comfort. Loader operators appreciate the enhanced performance when transporting bales or a full bucket of silage. In the field, the TLS Plus front suspension maintains ground-to-tire contact, enabling more power to the ground.
 
The TLS Plus front axle is available with or without wet-disc front brakes. While TLS Plus is available on all 7R Series Large-Frame Tractors, it is a requirement for the following:

  • 31-mph/50K CommandQuad™ Eco

  • 31–mph/50K e23™

  • 31–mph/50K infinitely variable transmission (IVT™)

TLS Plus components
7R with TLS Plus7R with TLS Plus

Two double-acting-control cylinders act independently or together to dampen shock loads, while supplying a constant down force on the axle for better traction. In addition to the cylinders, a pan-hard rod limits lateral motion while an electronic sensor signals a priority valve to automatically move the control cylinders as needed.

 

The cast driveline draft member controls fore-aft suspension of the axle. This heavy-duty conical casting encloses the entire driveline and transfers longitudinal forces to the tractor's center of gravity.

Operating characteristics:

  • TLS Plus self-levels at engine start-up with the implement attached and the hitch in the raised or lowered position.
  • TLS Plus self-levels whenever the tractor speed exceeds 0.9 mph (1.5 km/h).

The differential lock is another feature of the 1300 Series MFWD axle with Triple-Link Suspension (TLS) PLUS, driveline shield, hydraulic on/off differential lock, and wet-disk front brakes. When the rear differential lock is engaged or disengaged, the front differential lock is also engaged or disengaged.  This also includes a driveline shield.
 
If one wheel begins to slip, the differential lock can be engaged on the go and the axles are hydraulically locked together for maximum traction.  There are two ways to engage the differential lock feature.

  • Manual differential lock - differential lock can be engaged manually using a switch on the floor or by manual depressing button on CommandARM. When brakes are depressed, the differential lock will disengage
  • Automatic Differential lock - when in auto mode, differential lock is engaged when the tractor is driving forward. Differential lock will disengage when front wheel turn angle meets disengage wheel angle setting defined by the operator via the CommandCenter or when either brake pedal is depressed. Differential lock will automatically engage when brakes are released or front wheels are turned straight.

Video capability

 

Tractors with a 4100 CommandCenter are equipped with one video input and the 4600 CommandCenter has four video inputs. The operator has the ability to set a variety of triggers, including reverse, PTO, hitch, and selective control valve (SCV) levers to activate the camera. Once triggered the image will then appear on the CommandCenter display. The camera (video observation system) is available through JD Parts and Ag and Industrial (A and I) Products.

 

NOTE: 6R Tractors equipped with a 4600 CommandCenter have two video inputs.

 

Document field boundaries

 

Manually drive field boundaries with the Generation 4 CommandCenter or import existing boundary information from GreenStar™ 3 (GS3) 2630 or John Deere Operations Center. Gen 4 documentation data can be used to create boundaries from coverage within the John Deere Operations Center.

 

The display uses a streamlined boundary creation process that generates exterior and interior field boundaries from coverage, simplifying the process and reducing steps. Operators can delete interior boundaries without impacting the exterior boundary or headlands. In addition, operators can chose to turn boundaries off for section control, while using them for field locator and documentation.

 

Headland boundaries can also quickly be generated by simply entering a distance or the number of passes from exterior boundary.

Premium lighting

Eight front grill-mounted lights:

  • Two 65-W low-beam halogen driving/work lights (mid grill screen)
  • Two LED high-beam driving/work lights (top of grill screen, hood mounted)
  • Two front corner-facing LED work lights (top of grill screen, hood mounted)
  • Two front-facing LED working lights (top of grill screen, hood mounted, inner position on the sides)

12 cab roof-mounted lights:

  • Four side-facing LED lights
  • Four corner-facing amber lights
  • Two rear-facing LED lights
  • Two adjustable front roof LED lights

 

Other lights:

  • Two rear fender-mounted LED lights
  • Two rear turn signal and brake lights (fender mounted)
  • Two folding-extremity lights
  • Two front belt-line LED floodlights
  • Rotary beacon light

 

The premium lighting package replaces all previous halogen and HID lights with LED lights. The only lights that are not LED are the low-beam driving lights, they remain halogen. This allows each LED light to work at a lower temperature and no one light works harder than any other. The uniformity in LED coverage allows only one type of light output surrounding the tractor.

 

The lighting pattern in the premium package provides industry-leading performance in nighttime visibility. LED bulbs provide maximum brightness and a true color output for excellent field definition that is easy on the operator's eyes.

 

The LED lights provide 40 percent greater coverage width and 10 percent more light coverage in the rear. LED lighting packages use 45 percent less amps than standard halogen lights and have an increased life expectancy over HID lights which leads to lower costs of ownership over the life of the tractor.

 

NOTE: Lighting packages may vary depending on region.

Programmable exit lighting

Another feature is programmable exit lighting. Exit lighting allows the lights outside the cab to stay on for up to 300 seconds.  They can be programmed in increments from 0 to 300 seconds.

 

Refer to the operator’s manual for complete instructions on programming field, driving, and exit lighting.

ActiveSeat™ seat utilizes electrohydraulic technology with air suspension
ActiveSeat and controlsActiveSeat and controls
#

John Deere’s ActiveSeat utilizes electrohydraulic technology in combination with air suspension, providing the operator with enhanced ride quality over standard air-suspension seats.

Operator movements are monitored in order to reduce vertical movement. An ActiveSeat suspension can isolate the operator from up to 90 percent of vertical movements typically seen in tractor applications.

The system uses a hydraulic cylinder that is connected to a control valve assembly. Electrohydraulic valves located in the control valve assembly automatically react to inputs from two sensors, a position sensor and an accelerometer. Inputs from these two sensors control oil flow from the tractor to the hydraulic cylinder to reduce the vertical movement of the operator.

ActiveSeat left armrestActiveSeat left armrest
#

The John Deere ActiveSeat has many of the same features of the ComfortCommand™ seat with the addition of a ride firmness switch. The ride firmness switch is located on the left-hand armrest and replaces the suspension shock-dampening seat attenuation lever on the front right-hand side of the ComfortCommand seat controls.
 
The ride firmness switch has three positions: plus, minus, and mid position. The three positions provide three different levels of seat performance:

  • The plus position provides the greatest degree of ride firmness. This position allows more of the tractor's inputs to be felt by the operator (slightly rougher ride).
  • The minus position provides the least degree of ride firmness, allowing minimal tractor inputs to reach the operator, resulting in maximum seat performance.
  • The mid position allows a balance between the plus (+) and minus (-) settings.

The ActiveSeat is also available as a heated leather seat for increased comfort and easier cleaning. For tractor applications where operating speed is not limited by the implement, the ActiveSeat can allow for faster field speeds and increased overall comfort and productivity. 

 

NOTE: The John Deere ActiveSeat is not available on track tractors.

ISOBUS and tractor-baler automation offer new baling experience
Tractor-Baler Automation simplifies baling experience
A single manual action; system manages the restA single manual action; system manages the rest
TBA awardsTBA awards

The optional Tractor-Baler Automation (TBA) makes baling easy. This exclusive system manages most of the baling process and gives the customer the following advantages:

  • High baling comfort a single action to bale instead of four.
  • Error proof baling - even after 10 working hours, the system does not forget any action; a true advantage for an inexperienced driver.
  • Constant bale quality - same diameter bale after bale
  • Constant productivity - no reduced efficiency due to operators fatigue.

When used with a John Deere ISOBUS tractor, electric selective control valve (E-SCV), and (IVT™) transmission, the system will be able to:

  • Stop the tractor when bale size is reached
  • Wrap the bale
  • Open the gate
  • Close the gate when bale is unloaded

The only action remaining is to forward reverser and manage the steering.

If the John Deere tractor is not equipped with IVT but has E-SCV and ISOBUS, opening and closing can be automated.

A single touch on SCV, brakes, or reverser will disengage the automation. In the same way, automated open/close can be momentarily stopped when unloading in hilly conditions.

Tractor-Implement Automation is an exclusive green on green advantage. This advanced technology option has won awards at SIMA and Agritechnica farm equipment show in Europe, a true cost/value guarantee.

NOTE: to run through fully automated mode, a John Deere Isobus tractor with E-SCV and IVT is required. A baler activation key and a tractor activation key (different) have to be ordered.

e23™ transmission
7R e23 transmission7R e23 transmission
#

The e23 transmission delivers smooth shifting and intuitive controls with Efficiency Manager™ feature in a reliable 23-speed PowerShift™ transmission. The e23 transmission is available for all 7R, 8R, and 8RT Series Tractors.

 

The e23 has evolved from more than 50 years of John Deere PowerShift technology. With more automatic features, the e23 is easy to operate for all levels of operator experience. For more advanced operators looking to customize the transmission to best fit their operation, the e23 offers a custom mode.

As the next generation of PowerShift technology, e23 delivers the strength to handle sudden, high-torque power loads while maintaining responsive, quick, and smooth shifts.  The e23 with Efficiency Manager provides improved fluid efficiency and overall productivity with limited input from the operator.

 

e23 options

  • e23 transmission 42 km/h (26 mph) with Efficiency Manager
  • e23 transmission 50 km/h (31 mph) with Efficiency Manager

Even gear spacing for optimal performance


The e23 has 23 forward gears and 11 reverse gears, which are all evenly spaced. Forward gears are spaced 15 percent apart, while reverse gears are spaced approximately 30 percent apart, providing operators smooth shifting between gears.  Even spacing improves efficiency and allows for smooth, automated shifts when using Efficiency Manager. The e23 can reach maximum forward ground speed in gear F20. As a result, gears F21-F23 maintain maximum ground speed at reduced engine rpms to save fuel.

 

e23 controls

 

The e23 is available with either a right-hand or left-hand reverser.

 

Right-hand reverserRight-hand reverser
#

Right-hand reverser

 

A convenient, right-hand reverser is available with the e23 transmission. The reverser is located on the CommandARM™ as shown above.

  • Forward direction selector
  • Reverse direction selector
  • Neutral position
  • Electronic park lock

 

Right-hand reverser equipped models use three main controls to operate the tractor:

  • Foot brake with integrated AutoClutch
  • Set speed adjuster
  • Gear selector control lever with integrated reverser

 

The right-hand reverser control strategy combines speed control and direction control into one multi-function lever that is conveniently located on the CommandARM. This is a good choice for most common field applications since tractor speed and direction are not constantly being adjusted by the operator.

 

 

Left-hand reverser
Left-hand reverserLeft-hand reverser
Left-hand transmission leverLeft-hand transmission lever

An easy-to-use left-hand reverser is available with the e23 transmission and includes the same functions as the right-hand reverser. The reverser control is located at the 10 o’clock position on the steering column for intuitive control.

The five-position, left-hand reverser column incorporates the following controls:

  • Forward direction selector
  • Reverse direction selector
  • Neutral position
  • Electronic park lock

Left-hand reverser equipped models use four main controls to operate the tractor:

  • Foot brake with integrated AutoClutch™ function
  • Set speed adjuster
  • Gear selector control
  • Multi-function left-hand reverser

The left-hand reverser control strategy separates the direction control lever from the speed/gear control lever on the CommandARM. This strategy is a good choice for operations requiring the right hand to run multiple operations on the CommandARM or applications requiring constant directional changes like loader work.

Determining which reverser is best suited for a specific operator depends on a few key factors. Consider the following to help choose between a left- or right-hand reverser.

  • Operator preference and ergonomic benefits.
  • Operators in loader applications might prefer a left-hand reverser since direction changes occur frequently while their hands are on the steering wheel (near the left-hand reverser location).

Producers primarily in row-crop applications using features like AutoTrac™ assisted steering system or operating with the seat swiveled to the right for easy access to monitors and displays might find the right-hand reverser more convenient. Speed and directional controls are in one location on the CommandARM.

 

Foot brake with integrated AutoClutch function

The electrohydraulically controlled brakes on e23-equipped tractors have an integrated AutoClutch function.

  • At low idle only, the tractor will stop by depressing only one brake pedal.
  • Pressing both brakes (locked together) simultaneously will stop the tractor from any ground or engine speed.

Braking can be done on flat ground or steep slopes simply by using the brake pedals; it is not necessary to depress the clutch.

  • It is recommended to lock the brake pedals together when operating on roads.

 

 
 Foot brake with integrated AutoClutch


AutoClutch sensitivity can be adjusted through the Generation 4 CommandCenter™ display. AutoClutch can be deactivated on e23 transmissions as well; however, it will be reactivated after every key start.

 

#
Full auto mode
Full auto main pageFull auto main page
#

Full AUTO mode enables the tractor to make adjustments to the transmission operating mode automatically, based on engine and transmission speed and the load on the tractor. This means the tractor will shift up and throttle back automatically to reach the desired ground speed efficiently.  Operators have the ability to set the maximum forward and reverse speeds for the tractor in their particular application.

 

When shifting in full AUTO mode, the transmission shifts set speeds, meaning the transmission may not necessarily shift gears each time the lever is bumped. Efficiency Manager is automatically engaged while operating in full AUTO mode. As a result, shifting will not take the tractor out of Efficiency Manager in full AUTO mode.

Stopping the tractor using AutoClutch

During transport, it may be desirable to use the AutoClutch feature to stop the tractor when approaching an intersection or turn. Braking the tractor using the AutoClutch at high ground speed and engine speed will require high brake-pedal force.

 

Rather than using AutoClutch alone, reduce the engine rpm and reduce the e23 to a slower commanded speed before applying the AutoClutch. This will help to reduce the force needed to stop the tractor with the AutoClutch. The tractor will accelerate to the previously commanded speed upon release of the AutoClutch, repositioning of the hand throttle and increasing the commanded speed.

 

NOTE: The preferred method of stopping heavy towed loads is to reduce the e23 commanded speed and lower engine rpm first, and then depress both brake pedals. (Brake pedals should be locked together.)

Using individual brake pedals - implement hook-up

Individual brake pedals can be used to assist slow-speed off-road turning, such as hooking up to an implement. At low idle, the AutoClutch feature will stop the tractor if the operator depresses only one brake pedal.

To assist in hooking up an implement, depress either brake pedal while slowly increasing engine speed until the desired turn is achieved. Returning engine speed to a low idle while continuing to depress one brake pedal will slow the tractor to a stop.

Operating modes


The e23 application settings employ three modes to take full advantage of the engine-transmission communication: full auto mode, custom mode, and manual mode.

Custom mode
e23 custom transmission pagee23 custom transmission page
#

Custom mode allows operators to adjust operating parameters to meet their specific operation. Just like full AUTO mode, custom mode shifts set speeds meaning the transmission may not necessarily shift gears each time the lever is bumped.  Efficiency manager is engaged automatically in custom mode.

 

Eco buttonEco button
Display screenDisplay screen

In custom mode, eco allows two minimum engine speeds to be set. Operators can turn eco on and off by either pushing the eco button on the side of the throttle or by selecting eco in the transmission settings page of the CommandCenter.  For example, operators may choose to turn eco on during transport to utilize a lower minimum engine speed and then turn eco off while operating in the field where a higher minimum engine speed is desired.

 

Custom settings pageCustom settings page
#

In the advanced settings page, operators can customize the auto shift engine speed droop as a percentage of the full engine speed.  In addition, the load anticipation feature can be enabled for the hitch engagement, hydraulic engagement, or both.

Manual mode
Manual mode pageManual mode page
#

Manual mode operates similar to a traditional PowerShift transmission. When shifting, the transmission shifts gears, not set speeds like full AUTO and custom mode.  Manual mode also features efficiency manager when the operator engages set speed one or two on the CommandARM, as shown above in illustration.

 

When operating in manual mode with efficiency manager active, there is the option of turning eco on or eco off.  This allows the operator to select two different minimum engine speeds.  In the advanced settings page, operators can adjust auto shift engine speed droop and load anticipation, similar to custom mode.

Advanced transmission settings

Additional transmission settings can be customized to the operators’ specific desires.

AutoClutch sensitivity can be adjusted on the transmission settings page in the CommandCenter display. Operators can turn off AutoClutch or choose from high, medium, or low sensitivity. Operators can fine-tune AutoClutch by delaying the response time, based on load, travel speed, etcetera. This allows the trailer brakes to be applied before AutoClutch engages.

  • High: for light or no trailer (load) – factory default
  • Medium: for medium trailers (load)
  • Low: for heavy trailers (load)
  • AutoClutch Off: to operate e23 just like a traditional powershift

The AutoClutch sensitivity factory default-setting is set to high, which supports most operations.

 

AutoClutch sensitivity settings are available in all three modes – auto, custom, and manual.

 

Efficiency manager

 

 

 

 
 Set speed buttons and set speed adjuster


Efficiency manager is automatically enabled in full AUTO and custom mode. Efficiency manager can be turned on in manual mode by selecting the set speed one or two on the CommandARM. The set speed adjuster on the top of the single-lever gear selector allows the operator to dial in the desired ground speed to establish set speed one or two in Efficiency Manager.
 
Efficiency manager allows the transmission to up or down shift and change engine rpm to maintain the set wheel speed. To reach the desired set speed, the throttle must be set to full engine rpm. This allows efficiency manager to shift the transmission and adjust engine speed to maintain the desired wheel speed. For more information on Efficiency Manager refer to the operator’s manual.

 

e23 operation


Both right-hand reverser and left-hand reverser control options provide full powershifts for on-the-go shifting; no need to stop or clutch when bump shifting or shuttle shifting between forward and reverse.

 

The single-lever shifter allows for quick and convenient shifting with minimal physical effort.
 
Shifts are made either by bumping the lever or by holding the lever in a forward or rearward position.

  • Transmission is in neutral when the shift control or left-hand reverser is not in park, forward, or reverse.
  • Operator presence feature prevents the transmission from going into gear when the operator is not seated or has the brake or clutch pedal depressed.
  • Transmission can be programmed to start in 1F – 13F or 1R – 6R.

A forward gear between 1F and 13F may be preselected by depressing the clutch pedal and pushing or pulling the shift lever. The transmission will then start in the preselected forward gear when clutch pedal is released.

Rapid shifting
Rapid shiftingRapid shifting
#

When the tractor is working in a light-load condition, for example in transport, the transmission can be shifted rapidly by bumping the shift lever.

To reach transport speeds quickly:

  • Depress clutch pedal and rapidly bump shift lever to 13F
  • Transmission will shift directly to 13F when clutch pedal is released
  • Transmission will skip some gears as it keeps up with the operator’s command, allowing the tractor to accelerate to transport speed quickly
  • Once tractor is underway in 13F, bump the shift lever to reach desired ground speed 

Double shifting

The transmission can skip a gear when operating under load by double bumping the shift lever.

  • This aids the ease of deceleration/acceleration when approaching and departing headland turns. 

Ground speed matching

When the tractor is slowing down and the clutch pedal is depressed, the transmission will match a gear to the ground speed of the tractor when the clutch is released. Ground speed matching only engages in gears 13F higher.


Setting start-up gears

The transmission defaults to 8F and 3R at start-up. However, these default start-up gears can be adjusted from 1-13F and 1-6R through the CommandCenter. Refer to the operator’s manual for additional information.

 

 

 
Start-up gears in advanced settings

 

Releasing the park brake

The e23 transmission utilizes a spring-engaged/hydraulically-disengaged park brake. The park brake control feature prevents accidental park brake engagement when tractor is moving at high speed.

 

On tractors equipped with air brakes, the park brake automatically activates the air brake system.

Mounting Parts for Radar with Dual Beam Sensor - IVT - BRE10283
Dual-beam radar emission horns Dual-beam radar emission horns
Dual-beam radar (tracks tractor shown)Dual-beam radar (tracks tractor shown)

In today’s agricultural environment, accuracy and precision are more important than ever. For something as basic as ground speed, operators need key information for precise control of various implements and the tractor. To support these needs, tractors can be ordered with a dual-beam radar unit as a factory- or field-installed option.

 

There are several key features that have changed from previous designs.

 

First, there are two horns for exit of the radio beam. This dual-beam design assures a powerful and accurate signal that will cut through interference that at times makes single-beam units inaccurate. (See 1 in the image above for beam locations.) Dual-beam output makes radar less susceptible to hard surface or tall/wavy grass interference.

 

Accuracy is aided by a heavy-gauge mounting bracket and rubber isolators that reduce chances that vibration can affect the radio signal.

 

Dual-beam radar has a fast update rate. When the tractor comes to a stop, accelerates, or varies speed, the indicated ground speed on the tractor display will closely match the actual ground speed. This is important for implements that use radar speed to control operation such as planters, seeders, fertilizer applicators, and sprayers.

In addition, the dual-beam radar does not require calibration to assure accuracy. Its self-calibrating ability is sure to save setup time by elimination of a special procedure that was required in the past.

 

The radar true ground speed sensor activates the following CommandCenterTM or performance monitor readouts:

  • Percent slip
  • Hitch slip command (if equipped)


Radar usage improves the accuracy of the following CommandCenter or performance monitor functions:

  • Area covered
  • Area/hour
  • Distance and ground speed

Dual-beam units are compatible with controller area network (CAN) bus and International Organization for Standardization (ISO) bus electrical systems.

Hitch and Drawbar

Carrier to Ground Engaging, Front Hitch Conversion Kit - RE326580
Conversion from carrier version 11,450-lb lift capacity to ground-engaging 11,450-lb lift capacity for 7R Series Tractors
Heavy-duty front hitchHeavy-duty front hitch

Those who want more productivity out of the 7R Series Tractors with a carrier-version front hitch now have the ability to add tillage and other ground-engaging implements with the front-hitch conversion kit. The heavy-duty front hitch is recommended for the most demanding applications. It is designed for extreme stress from pushing hard on tillage implements, very wide implements, severe shock loads, or other heavy-duty applications. Premium hitches are also well suited for mounting three-point blades.

 

Field-installed kit RE326580 provides a set of heavy-duty lower hitch links, a push bar, and push bar mounting bracket. This hitch is suitable for use under normal conditions including primary tillage equipment or lifting heavy implements. The ground-engaging version is designed for full clearance and does not limit the turning radius at any tread width setting.

 

The tractor frame includes the mounting points for the push bar, making field conversion possible. Link conversion is possible by removing two pins for each link. Install the push bar with four cap screws in the front, four in the mid-chassis, and  tighten  two large jam nuts where the push bar attaches to the push bar bracket. There are no ground clearance trade-offs with the addition of the push bar and heavy-duty links. Both versions of the front hitch are entirely compatible with the FPTO (front power take-off).

 

The conversion kit to ground-engaging front hitch adds 117 kg (260 lb) of additional weight to the tractor.

The sump coupler kit allows oil to return from the hydraulics motor at low pressures. This coupler is required for correct attachment to current-production seeding products with case drain lines. The connector in the sump port is not to be used to carry return flow from a function to the tractor.

This coupler is required for correct attachment to current-production seeding products with case drain lines.

Hydraulic motor return couplers

The hydraulic motor return couplers can be used as couplers for return oil flow, from hydraulic orbital motors and other devices, to the tractor's low-pressure return port, labeled R on the tractor.

 

Use of this connector specifically in the return to sump port position is for hydraulic components that require a leak-off line connection to the tractor. Components and implements that require this typically are larger orbital motors that require a drain for seal protection. The connector in the sump port is not to be used to carry return flow from a function to the tractor.

Power beyond couplers

Power beyond provides live hydraulic power to equipment. This kit supplies oil pressure to implements when the engine is running.

 

Any implement using power beyond must have a way to control oil flow. Use an independent control valve that is pressure-and-flow compensating (supplied separately) to control the oil flow rate from this coupler set. Power-beyond functions require a load-sense signal to regulate pump pressure, therefore, a load-sense hydraulic line is used. Certain equipment may require modification.

Lights, Field Vision Xenon HID Rear Fender Light - RE269641
Xenon HID lights improve nighttime visibility
HID lights HID lights

John Deere has taken advantage of advanced lighting technology. This lighting provides the operator with industry-leading performance in nighttime visibility.

The important part of the system is the use of Xenon high-intensity discharge (HID) bulbs. These bulbs provide extreme brightness and a daylight color output for excellent definition of the field. The performance of this system allows the operator to easily view as much as 250 percent farther ahead, compared to previous tractors. A further benefit is there are no filaments in the HID bulb. Bulb life is increased by as much as 10 times vs. filament-style bulbs.

The front lighting package adds three high-intensity discharge (HID) lights to the front grille (see 1 in the image above). To further enhance all-around tractor lighting, there are two additional 65-W halogen work lights added to the left- and right-hand cab roof.

 

The center of the bulb has a semi-spot lens, and the outer light housings have a flood lens. In row-crop, the operator will notice there is a longer beam of light in the center for following marker furrows. The overall width of the lighting pattern for a non-row-crop operation will be obvious so tilled or seeded passes are easily identified. The inner, larger-diameter light assemblies are used for road transport and use conventional halogen 60-/55-W H4 bulbs. These larger light housings are also used in the base lighting system. With the dual-wattage H4 bulb, the operator will notice that there is a true automotive-style high/low function when operating in the road position.

 

The cab roof lights can be adjusted to aim to the side or rear of the tractor.

Rear FieldVision lighting
Rear FieldVision HID lightingRear FieldVision HID lighting

The premium HID lighting package (code 1720) adds two adjustable-position HID lights on the rear fenders.

 

Unlike aftermarket lights where the operating ballast is integral, these lights use a smaller housing with remote-mounted ballast.  The smaller housing decreases obstruction for a clear view looking out the rear window.  Using the light’s wide-angle flood lens will make it much easier to monitor the widest or longest equipment available.

IPM is compatible with 7R and 8R Series Tractors equipped with a front PTO option. The front PTO, rear PTO, or transport speeds can activate IPM on 7R Tractors. However, on 8R Tractors, IPM is only activated by the rear PTO or by transport speeds. For example:

  • A front snow blower will not benefit from IPM on an 8R since the front PTO alone will not activate IPM.
  • A triple-mounted mower-conditioner will benefit from IPM as high power levels are transmitted via the rear PTO. The front mower-conditioner will have 150 hp available to it on an 8R, which is adequate to operate these mowers in most crop conditions.
  • See Intelligent Power Management for more information
PTO disconnect on 7R Series Tractors

Disconnecting the PTO drive to the PTO box when not in use increases tractor efficiency by reducing:

  • Power requirements, which saves nearly 70 percent of power required to run the PTO disengaged
  • Wear on components of the PTO box; components are not moving when the PTO is disconnected

Refer to the operator’s manual for instructions on how to disconnect the PTO when not in operation.

IPM

NOTE: IPM is only available for Tier 3/Stage IIIA, Interim Tier 4/Stage IIIB, Final Tier 4/Stage IV engines, and not for Stage II engines.

 

This feature is for many typical farming operations that use the rear power take-off (PTO) in high-power applications or the tractor as a transport vehicle. Operators who are looking for more power in non-stationary PTO and transport applications will be interested in the IPM feature.

 

In high rear PTO power applications such as forage harvesters, rototillers, and beet or potato harvesting equipment or where heavy trailers, carts, or implements are moved to and from various locations, this feature provides significant additional capabilities. The solution improves productivity with more consistent ground speeds, quicker acceleration, and the ability to better hold desired transport speeds.

 

This two-in-one tractor solution successfully operates in power-intensive PTO and transport applications at reasonable low fuel consumption without being disadvantaged by the higher weight, the bigger proportions, and the extra costs of the next higher horsepower model.

 

This feature is available as a factory- or field-installed option.

Tractor applications
8R Tractor in transport8R Tractor in transport
#

Rear PTO field applications

  • Rear-mounted snow blowers
  • Sugar beet harvesting
  • Forage harvesters
  • Potato harvesting
  • Rotary cutters
  • Mower conditioners
  • Flail mowers
  • Balers
  • Soil stabilizing
  • Power harrow
  • Vegetable bed formers
  • Muck spreaders

 

Transport applications

  • Grain carts or wagons
  • Slurry tanks
  • Implement transport from field to field
  • Pull-type sprayers
  • Extensive operation in hills/roadways

 

This is not intended to be an inclusive list of all applications but shows the wide range of uses for additional engine horsepower.

Power available

IPM provides engine power increase in levels proportional to the size of the tractor. IPM provides a controlled power boost of up to 26 kW (35 engine hp) to tractor under the following operating conditions:

  • Tractor moving and PTO under load
  • Transport during acceleration
  • Transport during deceleration

Power increase is not provided under draft applications or non-loaded rear PTO applications. Power increase is only provided when required.

How it works

There are specific operating parameters when IPM functions to boost engine power. It is the "intelligent" part of the system that provides seamless operation while adjusting the engine horsepower depending on how the tractor is being used.  For engine horsepower boost activation, the tractor must already be running an application that is using the full power capability of the tractor.

 

PTO activation

Power must be sensed going through the PTO drive clutch by the tractor's electronic systems. The tractor must be moving at least 0.5 km/h (0.3 mph) and PTO consuming moderate power before power boost engages. The speeds shown above, assume lowest possible gear or speed setting and the engine running at 2100 rpm.

 

NOTE:  If the tractor is equipped with a front PTO, additional IPM power will transfer through the front PTO.  However, IPM activation is only sensed through the rear PTO. Adequate load must be sensed on the rear PTO in order for IPM to activate.

Tractor compatibility with additional power

IPM has been thoroughly tested by John Deere engineers to be compatible with the base tractor equipment with no impact to reliability. John Deere provides IPM as opposed to unapproved aftermarket devices that boost power without regard to engine, transmission, axles, and drawbar, or hitch capability.

 

This feature provides optimal utilization of tractor components. For example, with PTO operation, power goes through axles to move the tractor along the ground and turn the PTO shaft and implement. Adding power to both of these systems does not overload either one individually. At transport speeds, drive train torque load decreases significantly from levels seen at low field speeds. Adding power at transport does not overload transmissions or axles.

 

Aftermarket devices are not selective when power increases are available. Great amounts of power increase are promised with these devices. Large power changes are not compatible with base tractor equipment. To note, base tractor equipment changes as power increases. Larger parts, like hitches, drawbars, tire size, drive train components, axle diameters, and engine calibrations for emission performance and cooling, ensure durability of the total vehicle as power increases. Operating outside of the design capabilities of the tractor base equipment will have an impact on durability and reliability.

 

 

Transport activation

 

When in transport applications, power transition is smooth. The engine will respond seamlessly as load changes, such as when going up and down hills. Additional power is available at a useful working speed with minor differences between tractor models and transmissions.

 

The minimum ground speed is where additional power will begin to be applied, assuming the engine is already fully loaded. Ramp up to full additional power occurs as speed continues to increase. Full additional power occurs within a 3 mph (5 km/h) band.

 

Transport during acceleration: power boost occurs in steps through the range from 23 km/h – 28 km/h (14.3 mph – 17.4 mph).

Transport during deceleration: power boost ramps down in equal steps in the range from 23 km/h – 18 km/h (14.3 mph – 11.2 mph).

Power boost levels other than at rated rpm

Some operators will run the tractor at full loads and/or run transmissions in auto mode in transport. This means that the engine most likely will not be operating at rated rpm. As the engine is loaded, it will eventually drop off of rated rpm and use the power bulge as rpm slows. This is the way every John Deere PowerTech™ Plus engine operates when it is loaded to maximum power and torque.

Usable rpm range of operation (8345R shown)Usable rpm range of operation (8345R shown)
#

IPM (shown in purple in chart above versus standard power shown in blue) provides additional engine horsepower from rated engine speed down to approximately 1600 rpm (shown on the x-axis in image above, with power kilowatt shown in the y-axis), which is peak engine torque.

 

Horsepower levels are increased above base equipment power bulge values.

 

If the PTO is engaged and the engine rpm stays near rated speed of 2100 rpm, the full additional power potential for the tractor model will be available for use to handle additional load from the implement or changing terrain.

 

If the PTO is not in use and in transport operation, and the rpm has dropped off of rated speed, usable additional power boost of IPM will taper off as rpm decreases. The chart above (with 8345R Tractor power curves) shows the relationship of how much additional usable horsepower is available in the operating range. All tractors operate in a similar manner with this feature.

Operator visibility and control of operation
Engine power displayEngine power display
#

 

All tractors have the power meter display function as base equipment. The operator can observe when full capabilities of the tractor are being utilized. This function graphically displays power utilization up to rated horsepower and power bulge.

 

The power meter can be found in the CommandCenter™ display. If the engine is off or has minimal load, the power meter will not fill in. The meter is similar in concept to a cellular phone's signal-strength meter. As the power increases, it will fill in bars in an icon. The display will also show the level of additional power being used. The long section represents up to the rated power. The smaller section represents power bulge and is an indicator of additional power available with IPM.

 

Via the CommandCenter, there is also the ability to enable or disable the function. The operator's manual provides simple details about navigating the engine screen.

 

IPM is automatically enabled each time the tractor is started.

The front hitch/PTO ready option is ideal for any 7R Series Tractor that may be used for future applications requiring a front hitch or PTO. This option is also beneficial for increased resale value as it provides flexibility for future owners.

This option includes a front casting that accommodates, but it does not include a front hitch and front PTO.

  • With a mechanical front-wheel-drive (MFWD) axle, this option includes one set of hydraulic oil lines to connect the front hitch and mid-mount selective control valve (SCV). Mid-mount valves must be purchased separately. Additional hydraulic lines can be field installed allowing up to two front auxiliary couplers with a John Deere field-installed hitch.
  • On tractors with a Triple-Link Suspension (TLS™) front axle, the option includes three sets of hydraulic lines to connect the front hitch to the mid-mount SCV and up to two front auxiliary couplers. Mid-mount valves must be purchased separately.

In-cab controls for front PTO and front hitch have to be ordered through Parts when ordering the front PTO and front hitch field-installed options.

 

Front hitch ready tractors are not shipped with standard front weight support. A front weight support that bolts to the tractor can be ordered as a factory- or field-installed option (RE326583). The weight support is compatible with suitcase weights (up to 24) and with the 900-kg or 1150-kg (1984-lb or 2535-lb) monster pick-up (monster) weights.

 

Front weight support is not compatible with front hitch and must be removed before a hitch can be installed.

 

The sixth rear electrohydraulic SCV is not compatible with front hitch options because of the mid-mount hydraulics for front hitch.

 

Field-installed hitch options for front hitch/PTO ready tractors:

  • Premium (ground-engaging) front hitch with push bar
  • Standard (carrier version) front hitch less push bar
Front Weight - R127764
