John Deere has released its newest line of farm equipment. The agricultural giant came out with a line of new tractors for maintenance and agricultural use. Although some changes have been implemented, the company kept much of what has made the brand such a staple in the industry.
The John Deere 7800 Tractor was created in the company's main plant, located in Waterloo, Iowa. The model was manufactured from 1992 to 1996 as the agricultural giant had looked to improve upon the 7700 Tractor, which featured a smaller engine, according to Tractor Data.
The publication notes that the 7800 Tractor came with a 158.97 horsepower PTO and an independent Rear PTO that featured 540/1000 rear RPMs. The model came complete with hydrostatic power, differential hydraulic wet disc brakes and a standard cab.
According to Tractor Data, the diesel engine was a 6-cylinder version, and came with a hydraulic capacity for 22.9 gallons and a fuel capacity of 91 gallons. The equipment also featured a wheelbase that measure 114.4 inches and weighed more than 14,000 pounds without any of the potential attachments.
The 7800 Tractor also included a 3-point hitch that provided the model with a rear life capacity of 8,925 pounds.
Also manufactured in Waterloo, Iowa, the new John Deere 7215R Tractor has combined the best parts of its older models, while also incorporating the latest technology and industry improvements into the machine.
The 7215R model comes complete with an engine capable of 215 horsepower, and a PTO horsepower of 178. The machine comes with hydrostatic power, four wheel drive and a new Command View II Cab for optimal view and control.
In the new 7215R model, the engine is boosted by new technology and the unique "DieselOnly" approach that maximizes the output of the machine.
The Rear PTO is independent in the 7215R and the rear RPMs are 540/1000. The newer machine also features a CommandArm console that helps the driver control the tractor from all sides, helping to maximize the power that is given to each area of the machine.
The new tractor comes complete with an updated lighting system that helps to improve visibility and accommodate operators who want to use the machine into the night.
