Last week the Royal Agricultural Society of England announced the winners of its New Equipment Awards, recognizing the John Deere 7530E Premium tractor as best in the tractor category.
John Deere's 7430E and 7530E Premium tractors were introduced in the UK and Ireland in spring 2009. Rated at 165 and 180hp, rising to 200 and 215hp with intelligent power management (IPM), these tractors are equipped with an integrated, high power electric distribution system.
The E power management system controls the component drives at the appropriate time and the engine cooling fan speed is regulated by the system according to engine temperature. These features lead to higher power levels at lower engine speeds for improved fuel economy, John Deere says.
The 7430E and 7530E Premium tractors have 12V at 300A continuously available on board and the power sockets allow for the operation of handheld and fixed tools commonly used in the field.
Another benefit of the 7030E Premium Series John Deere tractors is the additional 10hp from the engine's IPM system for better acceleration on the road and an improved load response during PTO work.
Britain's annual Royal Show at Stoneleigh is open to agricultural equipment as well as horticultural and forestry equipment companies. The winners must demonstrate innovative ideas that bring real benefits to farmers.
