New John Deere 7430 & 7530 tractors from Mannheim

Two brand new six cylinder tractors from John Deere, the 7430 and 7530, extend the 6000 Series full frame concept for the first time into the horsepower range between 180 and 200hp. These newly designed Mannheim made models have been developed particularly for the growing market segment of lightweight tractors in this power class.

Both the 7430 and 7530 are built on a larger steel frame than the 6000 Series machines. This provides an excellent power to weight ratio of 30kg/hp and a maximum power rating on the 7530 in excess of 200hp. The new frame is designed to carry 42in tyres, to provide the increased payload, traction and versatility required by tractors in this market sector.

The combination of Intelligent Power Management system, 6.6 tonne shipping weight and lift capacity of up to 9 tonnes make these tractors ideal for a range of demanding transport and field applications. Both models feature a choice of PowerQuad Plus, Autoquad Plus with Eco Shift or Autopowr transmissions and are designed to accommodate the full range of AMS (Agricultural Management Solutions) GreenStar precision farming options.

Other features include a new rear axle and rear three-point hitch with Cat 3 linkage, and a 20 per cent larger cooling package specifically designed to allow maximum engine performance during the hottest conditions. Fuel tank capacity is 385 litres.

To illustrate the versatility of these new tractors, here are two typical case studies:

• A large 190ha mixed farm with 230 cows may require a powerful tractor for mowing, pulling a slurry tanker and for cultivations. A 7430 with AutoPowr transmission will be the right tractor for this farm’s transport and pto requirements, which will benefit from the increased horsepower generated by the Intelligent Power Management system. The tractor features a new 110 litre capacity hydraulic pump, hydraulic centre link, load adjustable Triple Link Suspension and the new Headland Management System, which is programmable for up to five different implements and applications. This tractor could be upgraded by an optional GreenStar 2100 or 2600 display, incorporating ISO-Bus implement control, field documentation and parallel tracking systems.

• A silage contractor may be looking for a tractor to carry a triple mower conditioner combination, such as John Deere’s 131 front mounted and 381 rear mounted units, which offer a working width of up to 8.1m. Depending on harvesting conditions, this machine can mow as much as 10ha/hr. Thanks to the Intelligent Power Management system, the 7530 tractor can develop over 200hp; in combination with EcoShift it can also use up to 15 per cent less fuel. A high level of operator comfort is provided by the new hydraulic cab suspension system, and by also using AutoTrac assisted steering with SF2 signal accuracy, the productivity of this tractor can be increased by up to 8 per cent. For bills and invoicing, fuel consumption per field and performance per hour can be automatically recorded and transferred to desktop software programs using an AMS GreenStar system.
