Limited-slip, heavy-duty MFWD front axle will provide operators with increased drawbar pull and improved traction when operating in slippery conditions. This ensures the operator gets the required torque to the ground for applications that demand more from the tractor. The MFWD front axle also reduces wheel slippage with less tractor ballasting for reduced soil compaction, increased fuel economy, and longer tire life.

The MFWD centerline design provides excellent maneuverability around the worksite and more crop clearance so producers aren't driving down their crop or profits. Additional versatility is proven when wheel treads are adjusted with 6 degrees of caster angle and a 55-degree turn angle, which results in a turning radius as short as 3 m (9.9 ft) (brakes applied), allowing plenty of horsepower to turn around in tight places. 10 degrees of axle oscillation follows uneven terrain, allowing for consistent performance and comfortable ride.

Axle oscillation also reduces the stress and maintenance cost on the axle spindles because loads are consistently spread across the entire axle. The centerline design eliminates the need for drive shaft universal joints that require regular maintenance. Anti-wrap shielding on the driveline is standard to prevent crop material and debris from building around the driveline and ensures tractor performance. Three grease points are conveniently located to minimize maintenance time while maximizing front axle performance.

NOTE: The MFWD engagement lever is located on the left-hand side of the operator's seat. For the operator’s convenience, when MFWD is engaged, an indicator light will appear on the dash.

Adding ease to operation
Enhanced operator controlsEnhanced operator controls

Operator comfort is important regardless of the application. Improving the 5E 3-Cylinder Tractor models, the hand throttle has been relocated to the right-hand console. This is 30.5 cm (12-in.) closer to the operator and within easy reach versus the previous location on the center-hand console. Operators may also notice the additional legroom provided by the repositioned loader controls, providing a more enjoyable experience.

Nine forward and three reverse speeds with in-line synchronized shuttle shifting

The SyncShuttle transmission is designed to match the excellent power and torque characteristics of the John Deere PowerTech™ engines. Transmission durability is enhanced with the pressure-lubricated top shaft, allowing an operator to achieve performance from one working season to the next. Additionally, this in-base transmission is configured with fixed draft links, single-speed power take-off (PTO) and mechanical PTO engagement.

 

The transmission is characterized as full top shaft synchronized (TSS) when forward shifting on-the-go between speeds, and is characterized a synchronized while depressing the clutch.

Nine forward and three reverse (9F/3R) speeds are achieved by using two platform-mounted levers for shift operation. The gear lever at the operator's right hand selects one of three forward gears and one reverse gear, as well as the integrated park position. The range lever at the operator's left hand selects collar-shift A, B, and C ranges.

Operators can easily switch directions without having to completely stop the tractor with synchronized, in-line, shuttle-shift capability between forward and reverse gears on the gear-shift lever in all three ranges (A, B, and C ranges).

A neutral start switch requires the gear-shift lever be in the neutral or park positions to start the engine.

A positive park pawl on the transmission provides positive park and eliminates the need for a hand brake. This also eliminates clutch service costs that occur when the park brake is accidentally left engaged.

Electrohydraulic reverser lever Electrohydraulic reverser lever

The John Deere-built PowrReverser transmission provides 12 forward and 12 reverse gears for operators requiring additional flexibility for multiple applications. It comes standard with shiftable 540/540 Economy power take-off (PTO) and electronically activated, telescoping draft links. This transmission is ideal for operators using their tractors to perform in versatile applications.

 

Hydraulic wet forward and reverse clutches maximize durability and will outlast the life of any dry clutch. When tractors are run by multiple operators with a variety of experience levels, a wet clutch is the best way to maintain transmission integrity and performance while decreasing clutch replacement costs.

 

The gear lever selects one of four speeds, all synchronized shifts for on-the-go shifting with the use of the clutch. The range lever selects collar-shift A, B, and C ranges, which are not synchronized.

 

Maximum productivity is achieved with hydraulic PowerShift between forward and reverse and is ideal for loader and rear-blade applications that require frequent directional switches in tight spaces. Excellent modulation allows the operator to shift the direction lever from neutral to forward or reverse, forward to reverse, reverse to forward, or to neutral from forward or reverse.

 

Operators can accomplish all these directional changes without sacrificing comfort or having to depress the clutch pedal. The speed of directional changes can be adjusted to the operator's preference or application demands with the field-installed infinitely-variable control kit.

 

The PowrReverser transmission also allows the operator to steer and shift direction with the left hand, freeing the right hand to operate other tractor controls, such as the loader, rear implements, or hand throttle.

Constant-mesh, helical-cut gears provide quieter operation and excellent reliability while the pressure-lubricated top shaft adds to the transmission durability. Fully enclosed, rigid shift linkages for short throw and crisp shifts enable all operators to clearly know in what range and gear they are operating.

 

Positive park pawl on the transmission provides positive park and eliminates the need for a hand brake.

 

This also eliminates clutch service costs that occur when the park brake is accidentally left engaged. A neutral start switch requires the directional lever to be in the neutral position to start the engine.

A smaller, more efficient after-treatment device provides more space under the hoodA smaller, more efficient after-treatment device provides more space under the hood

The 5045E, 5055E, 5065E, and 5075E Utility Tractors meet U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Final Tier 4 (FT4) exhaust emissions regulations with a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC)/diesel particulate filter (DPF) system. Modifying the after-treatment device resulted in better forward and side visibility around the hood. The hood slope of the updated design is comparable to the Tier 2 tractors previously produced. Similar to the system on the 5M, the purpose of the DOC/DPF combination is to reduce toxic gases emitted from the exhaust, as well as to filter particulate matter to prevent it from becoming airborne.

 

As the tractor continues to operate over time, as is the case with any filter, the DPF will accumulate particulate matter and will need to be cleaned. It is cleaned through a process called regeneration. During a regeneration cycle, exhaust temperatures increase to burn off the excess particulate matter. On a John Deere 5 Series Tractor equipped with a DOC/DPF, the operator does not need to provide any input to trigger the regeneration process.

Exhaust filter cleaning switchExhaust filter cleaning switch

On the dash is an exhaust filter cleaning switch. As long as this switch remains in the auto position, the tractor is in full control of the regeneration process and will regenerate on an as-needed basis during operation. The operator just continues to operate the tractor as normal while the regeneration process takes place.

 

There may be times a tractor is operating in an environment not suitable for a regeneration cycle, such as in a confined area or during service. For this reason, the bottom section of the exhaust filter cleaning switch can be depressed to disable the regeneration. The disable position allows the operator to temporarily inhibit the regeneration cycle. The operator should return the switch to auto mode as soon as possible to avoid continued soot buildup in the exhaust filter, which can lead to a parked regeneration. John Deere does not recommend disabling the automatic exhaust filter cleaning unless it is absolutely necessary.

 

The simplicity and intuitiveness of the exhaust filter cleaning switch maximizes uptime by minimizing the operator’s input into the regeneration process. This increases the overall productivity of the tractor by reducing the chances of a parked regeneration. The operator-friendly interface allows the operator to easily complete the task at hand, even during the regeneration process.

Shiftable 540/540 economy PTO (5E) for cab tractorsShiftable 540/540 economy PTO (5E) for cab tractors
Shiftable 540/540 economy PTO (5E) for open operator station (OOS) tractorsShiftable 540/540 economy PTO (5E) for open operator station (OOS) tractors

The 540 economy PTO option comes in base equipment with the 12F/12R PowrReverser™ transmission.

 

The 540/540 economy PTO allows operators to select the engine rpm for reduced fuel consumption, reduced noise levels, reduced vibration, and less wear and tear on the engine, while at the same time keeping the proper 540 rpm at the PTO.

 

The economy PTO provides 540 rpm to the PTO at 1600 engine rpm. The 540 economy mode is ideal for any PTO application, from running a mower-conditioner to a baler or a cutter, where full engine horsepower is not required.

 

Operating at lower engine rpm decreases fuel costs up to 30 percent and provides additional productivity by improving the operating experience through enhanced operator comfort from reduced noise and vibration.

 

A lever allows the operator to simply change between 540 and 540E when conditions merit the opportunity to save fuel without affecting performance.

 

For heavy-duty operations requiring maximum PTO power, the PTO shift lever is placed in the 540 position, the PTO is engaged, and the engine is run at a rated speed of 2100 rpm. This selection gives 540 rpm to the PTO shaft and delivers the fully advertised horsepower at rated engine speed.

 

When the cab tractor is in economy PTO mode, the engine is electronically limited to 1600 rpm, preventing accidental over speeding of PTO implements and protecting against binding the PTO shaft.

 

This interlock also prevents accidental shifting of the PTO selector lever at engine speeds above 1600 rpm, which would lead to downtime for fixing implements or drivetrain components.

Three-point Hitch

Quick-couplerQuick-coupler

The second-generation iMatch™ quick-hitch allows a no-hassle attachment option for many integral implements such as box blades, rear blades, rotary tillers, and rotary cutters. The hitch is constructed of tubular and box-welded steel, and the bushings and hooks are heat-treated to prevent cracking for long wear life. Hardened, zinc-plated steel alloy pins take the shock of heavy loads and withstand exposure to the elements. Hitch locking handles rotate 100 degrees to open the locking lugs for easy implement release. The top link is adjustable for compatibility and versatility.

This attachment is only available through Parts.

iMatch hitchiMatch hitch

The iMatch quick-hitch meets ASAE standard S278.6 for Category 1 agricultural quick-coupler standards. Uniform hitch points reduce the amount of effort to attach 3-point hitch implements in minimal time.

very strong but needs some IMPROVEMENTS

2/5

Tractor runs very strong in all gears. you'd think with the $7500 powerful loader it would come with some sort of rear weight. you cant lift more than about 1500 lbs with the bucket or forks without the rear tires coming off the ground. For another 1500 dollars john deere will install weights of course. Not sure why they put brakes on it either, they couldnt stop a skate board. i have the open station model and i am 6'2. It is made for people 5'9 and under with the seat all the way back. my knee hits the blinker every time i turn around to check behind the tractor. I have the new model where the throttle is next to the cupholder- horrible idea. i hit it with my elbow everyday. You also have to be a body builder to get the thing into 2 or 4 wheel drive. I wish i could return it and get a different model. Ive had it 3 weeks and put 35 hours on it. There is also dang near 0 visibility for attaching the front implements. The clutch is very sensitive. less than 1/4 of an inch of movement and itll go from 0 mph to almost popping a wheelie in any gear. Makes unloading things off of trailers very difficult. If youre driving on anything other than a flat parking lot youre going to want to spend ANOTHER $900 to have the tires rotated out so you can have some sort of balance to keep the whole thing from tipping over. It is very strong overall though. 42K for everything i bought and ive had to buy weights, pay to flip out the tires and already add air to the tires upon delivery. If you drive up and down parking lots to pick up marshmellows, this is for you. If you want to have a tractor to move large things and do any kind of dirt work, find another model.

Pros

  • very strong can rip out tree stumps

Cons

My 1950 JD 4010 has a very similar transmission as this tractor.

1/5

I own at least 13 John Deere tractors/combines/baler strippers, etc. I bought this 5065 utility tractor thinking it would be a great. It is not & I do not want to keep it. I feel like John Deere should do something. No one will buy it and the dealer cannot even move it for me. All partners in the operation have tried to make it useful but it is not. Would John Deere please help us out? We have been customers for many, many years.

Not JD Quality

1/5

Having owned 20+ John Deere’s over the years from small to very large this little tractor purchased brand new less than a year ago has been a real lemon. Shuttle shift sticks in neutral and light flashes nearly half the time going from fwd to rev. The brakes have been very troublesome and spongy unless pumped and the clutch is terribly grabby and travels nearly full out then catches and jerks until you’ve run it for some time after warming up. The hydraulic system seemed fairly strong on the loader at first then became weaker and very slow. With less than 100hrs and 3 trips back to the dealership where it still is JD has replaced the hydraulic pump twice, the large valve assembly on L side of transmission (with unpainted bare steel parts) and several other major components trying to troubleshoot and still no resolve. The little guy pulls good and runs nice when it’s going along except for when using the pto and then occasionally the red and orange light flashes and it all comes to a stop. This may all be realated to one bad component but so far it’s become a real mess and quite unreliable.

Pros

  • runs good
  • pulls strong
  • comfortable

Cons

  • hydraulic system weak and troublesome
  • clutch unpredictable and grabby
  • shuttle shift very unreliable
  • spongy unpredictable brakes

5065E Cab Tractor

4/5

I’ve owned this tractor for 2 years and 375 hours. Had some issues with the tractor, but MOST were addressed. Had the tractor 1 day and it developed an oil leak near the PTO and rattling noise under the gear shift area. Dealer picked up the tractor and determined oil leak was due to a gasket tear. Tractor worked well, but I started having more problems like, occasionally the starter would not engage, high idle speed, incorrect fuel gauge reading, difficult to change from 540 to 540E PTO, and difficult to engage the 4WD. Apparently there was a known problem with the starter, so they replaced it and it has never given me any more problems. Adjusted throttle and added a spring (another known problem), but still idles too fast. Adjusted linkages for the 4WD and PTO, but they can still be difficult at times. I am happy with the tractor, but there are some annoying things. I have an IT-4 cab tractor with a PS trans. Most of the time shifting from forward to reverse or the other way the tractor comes to a smooth stop and then changes direction. Once in a while it is a little harsh. The most annoying thing is the transmission, specifically with reverse. A proper design would be for the reverse speed to be about 60% of the forward speed, not 100+%. I have R4 tires and the tractor sits funny, looks like the rear tires are too small. This causes a few issues, the speedo reads faster than you are really going and it is impossible to properly adjust the headlights. Dealer was unable to adjust the lights low enough so the store manager ordered a set of optional forward facing cab mounted lights (at no cost to me) and I installed them. Speedo is not a huge deal unless knowing your ground speed is critical, like spaying. The cab is great, but the floor of the cab and the metal plate behind my ankles can get very warm. The seat is very comfortable and there is really good room in the cab. I love the economy PTO mode, the tractor is nice and quiet and fuel efficient in this mode.

Pros

  • comfortable seat
  • cold a/c
  • economy pto
  • good power
  • good fuel economy

Cons

  • reverse speed
  • mechanical linkages difficult to engage/disengage

JD 5065E Cab/H240 loader

4/5

Overall a very good tractor for the money. I have 65 hours on it now. In those hours I have used a 6' bushhog, 8' Krone disc mower, 4 basket tedder, 10 wheel hay rake, and a Vermeer 5410 round baler (net). It does all jobs I need it to do. Lifts 1000lb 4x5 round bales effortlessly. I have enough power to run my 8' hay cutter on ePTO, which saves me a lot of fuel cost. The only thing I run on full PTO is my round baler. It lacks the luxury of the M and R models, but it gets the job done. It does have a bumpy ride, and only capable of 19mph on the road, which is a problem for me when cutting hay on others' farms. I will be trading up to a 5085M or 5100M soon after this one is paid off.

Pros

  • capable

Cons

  • slow road speed
  • very bouncy in rough field

Great tractor for the money.

4/5

This tractor is excellent for mowing on my 200 plus acre pine tree farm in NW Florida. This new 2016 model has good power when using a heavy duty bush hog, and when using a 6.5' disc for fire lanes. I've only had a few minor issues such as a leaking coolant hose (clamp needed to be tightened), and I've noticed the oil changes to a slightly dark color quickly after an oil change. This may be due to the new Tier 4 pollution equipment, but I need to ask the folks at the dealer if this could be an issue. The two wheel model is a little light in the front when lifting the mower, and disc. I was told to put water in the two front tires to offset the weight of the attached rear equipment. This is my second JD tractor (replaces my first tractor, a MF 230), and I still own an older JD 5075 model that I purchased about 10 years ago. I'm hoping the new JD 5065 will be just as reliable as the older JD 5075 and the old reliable MF 230. However, I'm a little worried about the new Tier 4 pollution equipment.

Love this little tractor does everything I need

5/5

I use this tractor almost daily on my 46 acre hay farm. It has not given me any problems at all. We cut hay, rake hay and bale with it with no issues, it hauls a 250 gallon sprayer very well. We have used it for grade work demolition, etc. The only thing that I don't care for and I guess I'm spoiled is the loader doesn't auto level(but that is my fault I didn't think to ask for one when I ordered it). I will pull a three bottom moldboard with out question, it is just a good all around tractor.

Pros

  • good machine

Excellent chore tractor

5/5

I've had this tractor a little over a month. It is the two wheel drive, 2012, with 319 hours on it when I got it. It is a very good chore tractor. I didn't find the lift arm lever to be too short. The tractor runs fine. I got the 512 loader with the heavy duty bucket. I have dug out 2 old tree stumps and everything works as it should. I would recommend this tractor to anyone seeking a good chore tractor.
