To enhance operator comfort while improving ride and driving performance, John Deere is updating the available steering options for the 7R tractors. These will specifically be applied to the 2023 line of 7R tractors, which are designed for those who need equipment that can seamlessly work in tight spaces.
“All 7R customers will benefit from the increased steering capacity thanks to the updated, 50% larger hydraulic components in the steering system,” said Ryan Jardon, marketing manager for John Deere. “Customers using larger front tires or heavy front implements, such as loaders or mowers, will appreciate the tractor’s ability to maneuver around in tight quarters and at low speeds.”
The improvements will also make it easier to tackle everyday tasks, such as cutting hay and relocating material. Customers can also opt for Reactive Steering, which helps return the tractor’s steering wheel to the neutral position. This benefits the operator by relieving some of the stress of the job while enhancing transport.
John Deere’s 7R tractors can be equipped to use triple-mounted mower conditioners, as well as square balers that require more PTO and hydraulic lift. The ActiveCommand Steering (ACS™) 2 system is also available for this line of tractors. With this steering system in place, operators can reduce the amount of steering that is necessary in field applications. This prevents oversteering in the event of a quick steering reaction.
The 7R Tractor lineup includes the 7R 210, 7R 230, 7R 250, 7R 270, 7R 290, 7R 310, 7R 330 and 7R 350. These models range from 210 to 350-rated horsepower to suit a wide array of customer needs.
