    Leveraging the proven 5E 4-cylinder platform, the 5090EL Tractor is suited to fit in confined spaces where clearance is a constraint. While this model is of special interest to poultry farmers, it has the power to tackle other jobs with various implements.

     

    Special adjustments were made to accommodate low clearance applications. By lowering the rollover protective structure (ROPS) hinge point, operators will be able to reduce the overall tractor height, enabling them to stay below overhead obstacles. Adding to the possibility for low clearance, a factory-installed side exhaust is offered with the 5090EL Tractor. Lastly, updated tire options are available to suit the application. Regardless of tire selection, fenders can be adjusted to accommodate producer preference while optional additional fenders can be added to provide ample coverage to protect operators from mud and debris.

  • Getting the power to the ground refers to torque. Torque is a force that produces or tends to produce rotation or a twisting force. Torque represents the useable power that can be achieved. The more torque, the more lugging ability is available. More torque also equates to more load carrying capacity.

  • This PowrReverser transmission provides 24 forward speeds and 12 reverse (24F/12R) speeds. Included in base equipment is a dual speed 540/540 Economy power take-off (PTO), and it is ideal for applications requiring frequent directional changes, such as loader work and PTO work like rotary cutting and baling hay.

    Hydraulic wet forward and reverse clutches maximize durability and outlast the life of any dry clutch. When tractors are run by multiple operators with a variety of experience levels, a wet clutch is the best way to maintain transmission integrity and performance while decreasing clutch replacement costs.

    Two platform-mounted levers offer easy and comfortable shifting. To distinguish the two levers for ease of operation, the gear-shift lever is longer and the less-used range lever is shorter. Unique knobs make it easy to distinguish between the two just by feel.

    The hi/lo selector buttons are located on the gear shift lever for each forward gear, and are represented by a rabbit and a turtle respectively. 

    The forward lever selects one of four gears.  All are synchronized for on-the-go shifting with the use of the clutch. The rear lever selects one of three ranges: A, B, or C.

    Maximum productivity is achieved with clutch-less hydraulic shifting between forward and reverse.  PowrReverser functionality is ideal for rear blading and any applications that require frequent directional changes in tight spaces. An electrohydraulic fingertip directional lever control allows the operator to effortlessly switch directions with a small finger motion. The control is located on the left side of the instrument console and selects forward, reverse, and neutral positions. It also allows the operator to steer and shift direction with the left hand, freeing the right hand to operate other tractor controls, such as the loader, rear implements, or hand throttle. The PowrReverser has a built-in engagement override valve for additional safety. This valve requires the clutch pedal to be depressed one time after each engine start before the transmission will begin to operate normally, giving the operator another opportunity to put all focus on the tractor.

    A neutral start switch requires the directional lever be in the neutral position to start the engine.

    The speed of directional changes can be adjusted to the operator's preference or application demands with an optional field installed infinitely variable control kit.

    24F/12R transmission includes:

    • Wet clutch
    • Platform-mounted shift levers with four gears (with hi/lo selector in forward) and three ranges
    • Left-hand reverser
    • Constant-mesh helical-cut gears
    • Pressure-lubricated top shaft
    • Positive park pawl
    • Neutral start switch

    All tractors have economy PTO (E-PTO), a fuel-saving feature which allows customers to operate rear implements at 540 PTO rpm but at lower engine rpm. The result is lower engine vibration, reduced noise, less wear and tear on the engine, reduced fuel consumption and increased operator comfort.

    See the PTO functional area for more information on E-PTO.

  • Producer needs drive John Deere to deliver distinctive value in product solutions. The applications in which John Deere utility tractors, implements, and attachments are used are growing by the day. A 540/1000 PTO rpm field-installed kit is available for the 5E Tractors. With this kit installed, operators can switch between standard 540 or 1000 PTO rpm based on the requirements of the implement. From rotary cutting, to shredding to snow throwing and baling, the capability to operate an implement requiring 1000 rear PTO rpm is available.

    Once installation is complete, this solution offers the convenience of switching between 540 and 1000 PTO rpm with relative ease. Combined with the dry sump design, this attachment includes a reversible shaft. This provides for a less mess, no stress option that will enhance customer productivity and increase uptime.
