THE LIVESTOCK EVENT 2013, NEC, JULY 3 & 4, STAND NO. OS-501
John Deere’s latest tractors and Gator utility vehicles are being shown at the Livestock Event 2013, where the company is once again sponsoring the adjacent machinery demonstration area, which this year features nine different makes of mixer-feeder wagon.
The new single-fuel 6M Series tractor range makes its first appearance at the NEC, represented by three different models from 125 to 150hp working in the demonstration area and one on static display. One of these is the 6140M 140hp (EC 97/68 rated) model, which features the highest power level yet from a John Deere four-cylinder tractor. The versatile 6M Series includes tractors from 115hp to a new top of the range 170hp model.
The XUV 855D Gator 4x4 utility vehicle has a number of additional new features for 2013. These include a dash-mounted digital instrument cluster, a larger 27.6-litre fuel tank, improved engine braking and a redesigned descent control system. This follows the introduction of a new electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) system earlier in the year, which is now standard on the XUV 855D Gator with olive & black livery, and optional on the green & yellow version; the latter model is on display at the event’s Farm Safety & Security feature in the main machinery hall (16), which is opposite the John Deere stand.
This year’s machinery demonstration area features mixer-feeder wagons from BvL, Faresin, Harry West, JF-Stoll, King Feeders, Redrock, Shelbourne Reynolds, Tanco and Trioliet, all of which are being demonstrated on both days of the event. This feature is designed to allow visitors to compare models from different manufacturers, working under the same conditions.
A 2008 model 6420SE 110hp tractor equipped with a 40kph PowerQuad transmission and with 3201 hours on the clock is also on display on the John Deere stand, to highlight www.MachineFinder.com
