New tractors and scrapers from John Deere

John Deere has introduced the 9R/9RT Scraper Special Series Tractors, designed to provide contractors with improved productivity, increased uptime and lower daily operating costs on the jobsite.

The company has unveiled three track models – the 9460RT, 9510RT, and 9560RT – designed for demanding earthmoving applications and worksite conditions. The new line-up also includes three wheeled models (9460R, 9510R, 9560R). The modesl are fitted with a fuel-efficient, high-torque IT4 13.5L PowerTec PSX engine featuring 460 to 560 horsepower.

“With six new models, earthmoving contractors can choose the scraper tractor best suited for their application needs,” said Mark Oliver, product marketing manager for scraper systems, John Deere Construction & Forestry.

Special Track Tractors

The 9460RT, 9510RT, and 9560RT are equipped with the Durabuilt 5500 Series Scraper rubber track in a 30-inch width. These tracks are manufactured with four-ply layers and are designed for tough debris and resistance to high side loads. To increase durability, the internal construction has been upgraded with a heavy-duty main cable and optimized for puncture resistance.

“Operators asked us for a tracked tractor to give them a comfortable and dynamic piece of equipment suitable for use on soft, low friction and uneven ground,” Oliver said. “The new 9RT models will allow these contractors to be more productive throughout all jobsite conditions and drive profits to the bottom line.”

All 9RT Series Track Tractors are equipped with an AirCushion suspension system. This suspension isolates the entire front chassis when operating on harsh, uneven terrain. The entire system is fully automatic and requires no operator adjustment or special care. In addition, this system allows the tractor to travel much faster over rough terrain found in everyday operations, while increasing operator comfort.

Enhanced operator environment

Fitted with the all-new CommandView II Cab, the new tractors provide operators a spacious and comfortable cab. Improvements to the cab include a 10% increase in overall cab volume, 7% more glass area, and four times more storage area over the previous CommandView cab.

The right-hand console from previous models was removed to improve visibility and provide more space. In its place, John Deere added a right-hand convenience area. This area includes: two cup holders, an ISO connector, power outlets, an MP3 jack (premium radio option required), and storage for cell phones, MP3 players, etc.

The functions and features formerly located on the right-hand console are now integrated in to the redesigned CommandARM, including a new 7-inch color display. The new set-up provides fingertip controls of key tractor functions, including throttle, transmission speed and direction, and selective control valves.
