Heavy base tractor weight for stability

A heavy tractor means more down force to keep implements in the ground. More weight also leads to improved traction and performance in the field. Because the 5M is made with heavy and durable cast steel, it weighs enough to power through those tough jobs.

The compactness of the 5M Series in regards to wheelbase, weight, and total height tractor makes this tractor suited for a variety of different applications and is the perfect choice for all types of farms.

A heavy tractor also means better stability when performing loader work. Transport full bucket loads faster and lift bales higher with a stronger and more stable base.

Mid-frame design for support and strength

The exclusive mid-frame design on the 5M Series offers additional strength and durability but also reduces noise and vibrations. Because the mid frames are made from hardened cast steel, they will stand up to the toughest conditions and enhance loader operation stability and performance.

The mid frames also act as protection for different pieces of essential equipment. The hydraulic pump, located between the mid-frames, is attached to the transmission for short hydraulic lines and simplified fluid flows. An optional mid-mount fuel tank allows the tractor to carry an extra 30.3 L (8 gal.) of diesel. This is especially useful for long days in the field or when a trip to fill up may not be convenient.

The mid-frames are compatible with current loader mounting frames. This benefits customers interested in upgrading a tractor and keeping a H260 Loader.

32F/16R PowrReverser™ transmission

For operators requiring more field speeds to achieve the most precise operating ranges, as well as for quickly moving from task to task with transport speeds of up to 40.23 km/h (25 mph), the 32F/16R PowrReverser Plus transmission is the ideal choice. This transmission provides 32 forward speeds and 16 reverse (32F/16R) speeds for the ultimate in speed selection. The transmission provides convenient push-button controls like the electrohydraulic high/low selector.

Gear-shift lever with high/low selectorsGear-shift lever with high/low selectors

The high/low feature benefits operators who frequently transport their tractors from field to field or find themselves in bog-down situations during rear power take-off (PTO) work. Customers can push the rabbit button (high) without having to depress the clutch to get a 20 percent increase in speed. They can also push the turtle button (low) to get a 20 percent decrease in speed, similar to downshifting or engine braking without having to grab another gear. The 32F/16R transmission includes the Infinitely Variable Shuttle control feature. 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.

  • Wet clutch
  • Platform-mounted shift levers (four gears, four ranges, with hi/lo selector)
  • Left-hand reverser (F to R without clutching)
  • Constant-mesh, helical gears
  • Pressure-lubricated top shaft
  • Positive park paw
  • Neutral start switch

All tractors have economy power take-off (E-PTO) (a fuel saving feature) that 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 PTO functional area for more information on E-PTO.

PowerTech™ diesel engine provides low-end torque

The engine powering the 5075M is EPA certified Tier Level 4. This is achieved through a combination of a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and a diesel particulate filter (DPF).  John Deere uses the most efficient solution for the tractor package to meet emissions requirements at each horsepower level. The system always defaults to passive regeneration mode, and will only go into an active regeneration cycle when necessary without impacting engine performance. This active cycle takes place on average about every 40 hours of normal tractor operation. The regeneration process cleans out the DPF element.

Other key engine features and related benefits:

  • Heavy-duty cylinder block – strength and rigidity
  • Balanced crankshaft – reduces engine vibration
  • Optimized cylinder heads – improved airflow, better fuel economy
  • Low friction, high-ring pistons – cast-aluminum design
  • Plasma-coated top rings – reduced drag on cylinder wall
  • Wet-type cylinder liners – dissipate heat to prevent cylinder wear
  • Full-pressure lubrication system – eliminates excessive heat
  • Electric fuel shutoff – does not allow bypass starting

Torque reserve for powering through tough spots

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. 

The John Deere designed 3029 engine provides customers with a 3 percent power bulge, which is based on a rated engine speed of 1900 rpm. The power bulge feature of the engine, delivers reserve torque and power needed as engine rpm drops below rated speed. The power bulge can also be noticed when transporting at higher engine speeds. When the tractor is under load, it has the power to pull through. John Deere tractors continue to over perform (deliver more than advertised engine hp) at rated economy power take-off (E-PTO) engine speed. Horsepower remains close to constant over a wide range of engine  rpm, especially between 2200 and 1750. 


When the tractor is under load, power bulge and torque rise work together to get through the tough spots. Horsepower and torque are mathematically related.

Benefits of torque reserve:

  • Improved fuel efficiency
  • Reduced noise levels
  • Less downshifting
  • Increased productivity
  • Efficient throttle response

Heavy-duty 3-point hitch lift capacity for implement versatility

The Category 2 3-point hitch on the 5M Series Tractors adapts to a wide variety of implements. Telescoping draft links with interchangeable hitch balls are factory-installed, enabling easier implement attachment. The 3-point hitch has plenty of lift capacity to handle heavy ground-engaging implements such as planters, sprayers, and field cultivators. The external cylinders allow a hitch lift capacity of 2174.1 kg (4793 lb) at 61 cm (24 in.) behind the hitch-lift balls.

The 5075M comes standard with 56-m (183.7-ft) hitch lift cylinders, but the customer has the option of selecting the larger 63-mm (2.5-in.) lift cylinders that offer 2692.1 kg (5935 lb) of lift capacity at 61 cm (24 in.) behind the hitch lift balls from the factory (code 8458) or by ordering the field-installed heavy-duty hitch kit.

The sway bars can be easily adjusted to adapt to a wide variety of implements and the right lift link adjusts without tools for added convenience when leveling implements. Operators do not need to carry a tool to adjust the rear hitch.
