5045E Utility Tractor

Enhanced operator controls
Improved operator controls

Operator comfort is important regardless of the application. By upgrading the 5E 3-cylinder tractor models, the hand throttle has been relocated to the right console. It is 12 inches closer to the operator and within arm’s reach than the previous location on the center console. Operators may also note the additional legroom provided by relocating the loader controls, providing a more enjoyable experience.

9F/3R SyncShuttle™ transmission – An easy-to-use transmission which saves time and effort

Nine forward and three reverse speeds with in-line synchronized shuttle shifting

The SyncShuttle transmission is designed to match the excellent power and torque characteristics of John Deere PowerTech ™ engines. Transmission durability is enhanced with the pressure lubricated upper shaft, allowing the operator to get performance from job season to job season. Additionally, this base transmission is configured with fixed pull links, single speed power take-off (PTO), and mechanical PTO engagement.

The transmission is characterized as fully synchronized with the upper shaft (TSS) when shifting forward between gears, and is characterized as synchronized while the clutch is depressed.

Range selection pattern

Nine forward and three reverse speeds (9F / 3R) are achieved through the use of two deck mounted gear levers. The gear lever on the operator’s right selects one of three forward gears and one reverse gear, as well as the integrated park position. The range lever on the operator’s left hand selects ranges A, B and C for the neck shift.

Operators can easily change direction without having to come to a complete stop with the ability to shift synchronized, in-line, between forward and reverse gears on the gearshift in all three ranges (ranges A, B and C).

A neutral start switch requires the shift lever to be in the neutral or park position to start the engine.

A positive parking pawl on the transmission provides positive parking and eliminates the need for a parking brake. This also eliminates clutch maintenance costs that occur when the parking brake is accidentally left on.

Final Tier 4-compliant PowerTech™ engines provide improved visibility

A smaller, more efficient after-treatment device provides more space under the hood
A smaller, more efficient aftertreatment device provides more space under the hood

The 5045E, 5055E, 5065E, and 5075E utility tractors meet United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Tier 4 Final (FT4) exhaust emissions regulations with a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) system / Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). Modification of the after-treatment device made it possible to improve front and side visibility around the bonnet. The hood pitch of the updated design is comparable to that of previously produced Tier 2 tractors. Like the 5M system, the purpose of the DOC / DPF combination is to reduce the toxic gases emitted from the exhaust, as well as to filter the particulates from becoming air.

As the tractor continues to operate over time, as with any filter, the DPF will accumulate particles and will need to be cleaned. Its cleaning is done through a process called regeneration. During a regeneration cycle, the temperature of the exhaust gases increases to burn off excess particles. On a John Deere 5 Series tractor equipped with a DOC / DPF, the operator does not need to provide any information to activate the regeneration process.

Exhaust filter cleaning switch

There is an exhaust filter cleaning switch on the dashboard. As long as this switch remains in the automatic position, the tractor is in full control of the regeneration process and will regenerate as needed during operation. The operator continues to operate the tractor normally while the regeneration process takes place.

There may be times when a tractor is operating in an environment not suitable for a regeneration cycle, such as in a confined area or during service. For this reason, the lower section of the exhaust filter cleaning switch can be pressed to deactivate regeneration. The off position allows the operator to temporarily inhibit the regeneration cycle. The operator should return the switch to automatic mode as soon as possible to avoid further accumulation of soot on the exhaust filter, which can cause a parked regeneration. John Deere does not recommend disabling automatic exhaust filter cleaning unless absolutely necessary.

The simplicity and intuitiveness of the exhaust filter cleaning switch maximizes uptime by minimizing operator intervention in the regeneration process. This increases the overall productivity of the tractor by reducing the chances of a parked regeneration. The user-friendly interface allows the operator to easily complete the task at hand, even during the regeneration process.
