This morning John Deere revealed a brand new high horsepower tractor – the 9RX. Here it is on the showroom floor of the John Deere Waterloo Tractor, Cab, Assembly Operations facility where it is being built. I recorded the program this morning which features moderator Michelle Rook, WNAX.
After years of design, field trials and customer feedback, John Deere introduces its first-ever 4-track tractor, adding to its extensive line of high horsepower 9R Series wheeled and 9RT Series 2-track tractors. The four new 9RX Tractor models – which range from 470 to 620 engine horsepower – feature a large, robust undercarriage and track system engineered to provide superior power, durability, and improved ride quality, especially when handling large implements in the field.
Jerry Griffith, John Deere product marketing manager, 6-9 Family Tractors, says the new 9RX Series Tractors offer customers three distinct advantages compared to similar 4-track models. “The 9RX has a superior undercarriage with a positive-drive track system that effectively delivers power to the ground; it features the outstanding comfort of our CommandView III cab with a new cab suspension system for improved ride quality; and it is designed with integrated performance features already available on our 9 Family of tractors.”
