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 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.

Work horse

4/5

The tractor is very nice, however, the foot throttle is not user friendly. My biggest complaint would be the fuel efficiency, or lack there of. I've tried 540e and 540 and both are terrible on fuel. Other than that, this tractor is great! A real work horse for hay farming and bush hogging, as well as plowing and planting.

Pros

  • work horse

Cons

  • terrible fuel efficiency

Awesome workhorse

5/5

I have had my cab 5075e for 3 months. I have pulled my 12ft batwing over head high grass and the tractor acts like there is no grass there. Pulling a 6ft is a joke to this tractor. The cab is quite the radio is great. Overall a tractor that i love as much as my wife ( dont tell her that). You wont regret your purchase if you buy this tractor, good on fuel also.

Pros

  • awesome with any implement
  • awesome front end loader capacity

Cons

  • if you can find one let me know
  • there are none

Great tractor for the money

5/5

Traded in a 4320 open station 2008 model on a 2019 5075E cab tractor with loader. Got my tractor from united in Rhome TX. Excellent customer service. Very fast getting the unit ready to go. I needed a larger tractor to haul over to our other farm, made the decision while flying back from seattle to DFW. had wifi on the plane, did the entire deal while flying including the trade in. Had papers waiting when I drove by the Rhome United ag store and signed and picked up the tractor the next morning and headed out. Put 20 hours clearing brush and mowing that weekend and everything worked flawlessly and AC is very good, was over 100 out. It does like fuel when pushing it, tank could be a bit bigger but overall its a great value. I have watched the reviews for a while and while early units did have some teething issues. i think John Deere has listened and its a good value product. Im happy with it.

Excellent tractor for my 37 acres!

5/5

I have owned several other open station John Deere tractors and decided this year to upgrade to a cab. AC and heat are awesome, and I added the bluetooth radio for those long day of mowing or other field work. I like the fact that you do not have a DEF system with these 75 HP tractors. The power Reverser transmission is smooth, and the controls are conveniently located. I am very satisfied with my purchase.

Lots of power and great overall tractor

5/5

We’ve owned this tractor for about a year and we’ve let it see some work, it handles multiple tasks around the farm and around the house with ease. So far it hasn’t met its match with the 520 loader attached, John Deere doesn’t only produce sweet looking tractors, they produce work horses that are safe and reliable for any job. Haven’t had any issues so far and it’s easy to service and maintain. I’d buy three more if I had the money haha. I didn’t just pick 5 stars for no reason, this tractor has earned its rating and more in my book.

Pros

  • power
  • ease of use
  • strong 4wd

Been an excellent tractor so far.

5/5

I bought my 4WD 2018 open station 5075E back in April so I've had it for 7 months. Added a 520M FEL and the adjustable knob for the powershuttle to adjust the speed and firmness of the forward to reverse shift. So far it's been a very good machine. No real big issues with it. It's strong, quiet, has great visibility off it, and for its size it is a very nimble machine especially considering it's a 3 ton machine without the loader. It's a little on the thirsty but nothing terrible. It doesn't get the best MPG's I've seen, but not the worst either. My guess is the emissions equipment that tractor manufactures are forced to use now probably hurt the fuel economy some. Speaking of which I have over 60 hours on it and it has yet to hit to hit its first regen but I do use it at WOT a lot so it likely is self-regenning. Has no issues at all handling a 9' disc mower, or 4x5 baler. I've also bush hogged some fairly heavy stuff and also no problem for it but a 6' bush hog should give a 73 HP tractor any issues. I've pulled some 5"+ trees up with it, and pulled some pretty large trees I sawed down with it. Again no issues. It does everything I ask it to within reason without giving me issues and does it comfortably and quietly (relatively speaking) and is a very easy tractor to use being an agile tractor with excellent visibility. That's why I've given it a 5 star rating.

Pros

  • agility/very nimble
  • visibility
  • quiet
  • torquey
  • good weight compared to competition
  • good initial quality
  • very strong loader
  • seems to do a good job self-regenning

Cons

  • mpg's not great
  • hydraulic line in way of fel pin

Tractor is good, however, availability of advertised features is disappointing.

4/5

Bought the new MY18 5075e. One of the selling points to me was the MY18 upgrades touted by Justin Cherry in his August 2018 video. Specifically, the field installed 3rd function diverter kit was a necessity due to my uses for the tractor. However, since the purchase, I've come to realize that this kit is not available. Have been unable to order this kit from any JD dealer in the CONUS. Only a few have heard of it. Without this functionality, I cant use this tractor.

Pros

  • tractor cost and value is good

Cons

  • advertised features are unavailable

Good warm weather tractor

4/5

I purchased the 5075E 2WD in January 2016. I use it for bush hogging light to medium grass and brush, plowing, discing, and dragging logs. Its a great tractor during warm weather. However, it will absolutely will not crank once the temp's go much below 50°F. It has a manifold heater which is worthless. I have not tried a block heater, but plan to purchase one this fall so I dont have to wait till the middle of the day when the temps here in Carolina typically warm up to at least 50F so I can get it to crank. I've put about 180 hours on it so far without issue other than the failure to crank in cold temps.

Pretty good tractor, but had some issues

4/5

I use the tractor for mainly bush hogging, moving branches and dirt, and snow blowing. I've had it for 4 years with 300 hours on it. The 4x4 connector for the 4x4 light (cheaply made underneath) kept coming disconnected and I fixed it. There is a coolant leak that it has had since it was new. I just keep adding coolant as it is a small leak. (I rarely see it on the ground) Vibrates some going down hills, I think mostly because of the ag tires. I've had to replace a hydraulic connector on the back and have another that does not work that I will need to replace. (I hardly ever use them so I'm not sure what the issue is other than non use. Tried to free it up by soaking it, but it doesn't work so I had to buy a new one and now a 2nd one) It starts up nice in the cold. I have a block heater but never need to use it with the glow plugs. Overall I am happy with it but wish the above mentioned items were better.

Pros

  • plenty of power
  • nice cab
  • stong hydros

Cons

Good overall tractor

4/5

I own a 100 acre farm and use this tractor for multiple different things. I farm 60 acres of alfalfa and it has plenty of power to run my pull behind swather and my small square baler. The multiple different speeds come in handy in different parts of the field. Really comfortable on the inside after long hours in the seat. I also use the loader attachment frequently for plowing snow and different projects in the summer, it works well. The visibility is fairly low on the loader and it takes some getting used to. The best feature is the power-reverser, there is no need to use the clutch all the time which really helps with fatigue. The tractor has plenty of power to plow snow with. Overall I think this is a well made tractor, but I only have 350 hours on it. It appears the 5075e gets mixed reviews and a few people have had problems with them, but so far I have had zero issues. I enjoy using it and have worked it pretty hard in the field. I keep up on the maintenance and it runs great. This is a utility tractor and I use it for just that.

Pros

  • good power
  • power-reverser
  • good visibility

Cons

  • average fuel economy
  • throttle position
  • little noisy on the inside

Overall I'm happy with it.

4/5

Negatives: 1) I do feel it uses quite a bit of fuel, but then again it has double the horsepower of my old tractor. 2) I feel the dash should have a P for Park light. Positives: 1) I use it for woods work and plowing my yard. In the woods, I get around remarkably easy. 2) I never had a cab before, so I think I'm in heaven when there's a cold temperature wind, or when it's raining or snowing and I have the heat or air on. Overall, I am not sorry I bought it. In fact, I would recommend it BUT I am not a farmer and have non-farming uses for it.

Not designed for hay use.

1/5

While baling hay, the radiator has to be constantly cleaned (every 10 minutes), or the tractor over heats. The engine RPM does not remain a constant speed, it continually slows down. At the end of the day it is pushed to 100% throttle, but tractor only makes 1750 RPM. Parking brake is poor also. This tractor works great for feeding hay, just not making it. The cab is nice and open and controls on the front end loader are easy to use.
