Large-scale farmers who need to cover a lot of acres under tough conditions need a high-horsepower, no-nonsense tractor with a large, comfortable cab that works as hard as they do. The 9R/9RT series from John Deere gives them exactly that.
The 9R/9RT series tractors feature more horsepower across all models and heavy-duty hydraulic capacity in durable, articulated four-wheel-drive and track tractor platforms. These machines are ideal for row-crop applications and large-acre small-grain operations with tough field conditions and hillside terrain, as well as the high-performance demands of the scraper market.
The 9R/9RT series features 10 models with wheels and six tracked models to meet any farming or land management need (the last three digits of the model number indicates horsepower):
- 9470R/9470RT Scraper Special
- 9520R/9520RT Scraper Special
- 9570R/9570RT Scraper Special
- 9620R Scraper Special
Performance begins with the power source. The John Deere PowerTech PSS 9.0L and 13.5L engines, along with the 15L Cummins QSX15 engine, are all Tier 4 Final-compliant and deliver the horsepower and torque required for demanding operations.
The e18 PowerShift transmission with Efficiency Manager features smooth shifting and an additional automatic mode for efficiency manager that’s designed to increase machine fluid efficiency and operator productivity. In addition, a hydraulic flow of 115 gpm gives these tractors plenty of capacity to handle large implements with ease.
The HydraCushion suspension system is an additional feature found on the 9520R, 9570R and 9620R models. Located on the front axle, HydraCushion suspension mitigates power hop and road lope to ensure customers get all of the horsepower to the ground for the highest level of traction.
The CommandView III cab provides increased operator comfort and ease of operation with a redesigned CommandARM, featuring a John Deere 4600 CommandCenter display for convenient control of tractor functions and settings. This puts everything needed to do the job at the operator’s fingertips while sitting in a seat that swivels 40 degrees to reduce strain when viewing rear implements.
The 9R/9RT Series comes with a premium LED lighting package for brilliant nighttime work illumination. Optional Active Command Steering provides improved line hold and steering feel at high speeds (26 mph transport speed) and reduces steering effort in the field. Finally, the series also includes factory integration of the modern technology solutions, including John Deere FarmSight solutions for customers.
