Feb 11, 2020John Deere outlines new 4M Heavy Duty tractor
John Deere announced the launch of the new John Deere 4M Heavy Duty Tractor. Designed with commercial customers and large property owners in mind, the new 4M Heavy-Duty delivers all the performance customers demand from their utility tractor in a compact, easy-to-use package.
The new 4M Heavy Duty is available in two output ratings, the 52 horsepower (37.9 kW) 4052M HD and the 66 horsepower (48.5 kW) 4066M HD. Both units feature John Deere’s three-range eHydro transmission with Twin Touch pedals, allowing for easy direction changes and increased productivity while decreasing operator fatigue. The eHydro transmission also includes eThrottle, LoadMatch, MotionMatch and SpeedMatch systems along with automotive style cruise control.
Also, John Deere has equipped the 4M Heavy-Duty with a category I/II hitch with telescoping draft links. Customers can use one tractor across a broad range of implements with various hitch specifications. Factory installed hydraulics also allow operators the ability to connect and use multiple hydraulic controlled implements simultaneously.
Perfect for working in small spaces and low-light conditions, like barns and stalls, the 4M Heavy Duty features a lighting design and a short wheel base. With the tractor’s unique fore and aft work lights, visibility is significantly improved in low-light environments. Additionally, its compact 73-inch (185.4 cm) wheel base allows for a tight turning radius while operating in small spaces.
The tractor is backed by a full machine standard two-year warranty, which promises to fix any defects in materials and workmanship for two years after delivery, or 2,000 hours. Additionally, the 4M HD’s powertrain is covered by a six-year, 2,000-hour warranty.
