John Deere has launched two new 4M heavy-duty compact chore tractors with power output ratings from 52 to 66 horsepower, plus a truckload of useful technologies at no extra charge.
Deere’s three-range eHydro transmission with Twin Touch pedals provides easy direction changes. The eHydro transmission also includes eThrottle, LoadMatch, MotionMatch and SpeedMatch systems along with automotive style cruise control.
The 4052M HD has 52 h.p. The 4066M HD has 66 h.p. Both models are equipped with a category I/II hitch with telescoping draft links, for easy implement hookup. Factory installed hydraulics allow operators to connect and use multiple hydraulic controlled implements simultaneously. Designed for small spaces and low-light conditions like barns and poultry houses, the 4M Heavy-Duty features a short wheelbase of 73 inches.
“With this unit we had three main objectives: Increase visibility: Provide industry leading manoeuvrability: Reduce downtime related to changing attachments,” said DeMark Cole, product marketing manager, John Deere.
The 4M Heavy-Duty is backed by a two-year or 2,000 hour warranty. The power train is covered by a six-year, 2,000-hour warranty.
