John Deere made improvements to the 7R and 8R model tractors which included increased horsepower, better ride quality for increased comfort, and productivity. John Deere has announced several updates and additions to the 7R and 8R tractor models for 2021. According to John Deere, the engine is a 20hp improvement over the largest MY20 7R tractor and provides the best power-to-weight ratio of the tractor John Deere has to offer. The 7R 350 tractor comes standard with Triple Link Suspension and Infinitely Variable Transmission (IVT) and can be ordered with CommandPRO controls for precise speed control and easy implement attachment installation. Make sure to get the john deere service manuals to help you maintain it.
The new model provides power and mobility to farmers who need it.. This function controls tractor vibration caused by large square balers (LSB) connected to the rear of the machine, allowing the operator to ride the tractor more smoothly and comfortably. LSB Ride Control works by modulating the tractor’s IVT to compensate for the rocking motion of the roller. LSB Ride Control enables the operator to operate large haystacks and large square balers more easily, minimize compaction damage from the 7R 350’s lighter footprint, and perform bale cutting, joining, bonding, and rolling with one tractor.
For the MY2021, John Deere will provide ActiveCommand Steering 2 (ACS 2) as a factory-installed option on the 7R and 8R tractors. This system replaces the original ActiveCommand Steering system and has more features and capabilities to further enhance the on-field or on-road driving experience, says John Deere. With the ACS 2, operators can adjust steering sensitivity and steering wheel resistance or turn variable-ratio steering on or off to best suit their application and their driving preferences. For the MY21, John Deere will also offer Low Sidewall (LSW) tires as optional equipment on its three largest 8R Tractors, the 8R 340, 8R 370, and 8R 410. 8R tractors require Independent Link Suspension for equipped with tires with low sidewalls. MY21 7R and 8R tractors can now be ordered with deliveries starting in early 2021.
