Contractors and growers with a high level of road transport applications will benefit from the 7R’s exceptional fluid efficiency at transport. Thanks to the excellent power-to-weight ratio and the fast engine response, the 7R will boost your transport business and increase your productivity.
Catalysed exhaust filter with DOC/DPF
The diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and diesel particulate filter (DPF) remove particles down to 2.5 μm.
Transient engine response
The proven lifetime DPF in combination with the SCR system that has been specially developed by John Deere for our powerful engines allows the engine to respond very quickly to changing loads.
The 7R Series Tractors offer a range of transmission options to tackle the challenges of your operations: the AutoPowr™ infinitely variable transmission (IVT™) and the e23™ PowerShift™ transmission.
AutoPowr: Four modes
There are four different modes available to operate the AutoPowr transmission: Full Auto, Custom, Manual and Pedal mode, which enables you to control ground speed separately from the engine.
AutoPowr transmission with AutoClutch
With the AutoClutch feature, you can simply depress both brakes, and the transmission ratios down to a stop from any ground speed without using the clutch pedal.
AutoPowr: Smooth shifting
AutoPowr lets you shift smoothly from start-up to maximum speed with a single lever and absolutely no clutching. Just select a specific speed and AutoPowr keeps it steady by automatically responding to changing load conditions.
AutoPowr automatic response
AutoPowr lets you smoothly start-up, achieving maximum speed with absolutely no clutching. Top speed is 40 km/h (24.9 mph) at 1,290 rpm and 50 km/h (31.1 mph) at 1,620 rpm for low transport cost.
Infinite speed adjustment in all situations
AutoPowr delivers stepless and continuous power across an infinitely variable range of speeds controlled by a single lever.
Mechanical part of the power flow of 7R AutoPowr
The exclusive John Deere-built AutoPowr transmission with three ranges ensures maximum mechanical power transfer in all speed ranges.
With 55 percent to 100 percent of mechanical power flow, the AutoPowr transmission boosts the efficiency of the tractor and gets more power to the ground. The reduced hydraulic part has another positive effect: a lower oil cooling requirement and better fuel efficiency.
We offer you the flexibility to choose the right transmission to fit your needs. The e23 transmission is engineered to deliver maximum power transfer for arable farming with road transport. Alternatively, choose the intuitive functionality of the AutoPowr IVT.
e23 industry-leading technology
The John Deere unique e23 full PowerShift transmission delivers power 100 percent mechanically with its 23 forward and 11 reverse gears.
The design of this sophisticated transmission reduces the losses to a minimum and ensures the most efficient way of power transfer through the drivetrain of the tractor. This enables the operator to get more power to the ground, covering more hectares and reducing the total fuel consumption per hour.
Even gear spacing of e23 transmission
The gears are evenly spaced in the e23 transmission, with many gears in the main working range for high efficiency.
e23 transmission with AutoClutch
The e23 transmission combines all the benefits of a mechanical transmission with the ease of use of an AutoPowr transmission. With the AutoClutch feature, you can simply depress both brakes and the transmission shifts down to a stop from any ground speed.
e23 transmission with Efficiency Manager™ feature
Efficiency Manager allows the operator to preset the working speed and helps to save fuel by keeping the engine rpm at an optimum speed by automatically shifting up and throttling back.
Ten fully powershiftable gears in the main working range
Ten gears in the main working range from 5 to 16 km/h (3.1 to 9.9 mph) provide the best gear for the most demanding pulling application, resulting in the highest field performance.
The structural chassis of the 7R Series has been designed for unprecedented power density. With a robust chassis, the TLS Plus front axle providing extra drawbar pull, and a long wheelbase for additional pulling power and stability, John Deere 7R Series Tractors deliver increased productivity with high payloads, even in tough conditions.
John Deere offers a variety of tyre options for a wide range of field and transport applications. Select 2.15-m (7.05-ft) diameter rear tyres (7250R models and above) for better power transfer and higher ground clearance. You will also get sufficient traction with less ballast, reducing soil compaction.
7R Series Tractors are designed with a perfect 45:55 weight split. Wide ballasting options are available if required and can be easily installed and removed due to the self-centering guide lugs.
The EZ Ballast system exclusively enables optimal ballasting of the tractor, which is especially beneficial to growers and contractors who frequently need to switch between field and road applications.
You can add or remove the 1.7 tonnes of weight in seconds at the touch of a button without needing to step down from the cab.
Drive over the weight
There's no need to step down from the cab.
Pick up the weight
Simply use the dedicated control panel and the ballast is raised to the undercarriage (connected to existing power beyond system). A safety device will ensure unfailing locking.
Releasing the ballast is just as simple and will save transport fuel costs.
When you climb into the CommandView™ III cab, the first thing you notice is the space you have and the premium fit and finish quality. The exceptionally low 69 dB(A) makes for a more relaxed day.
Visibility is also better than ever, especially when you rotate the seat 40 degrees for a nearly unobstructed view of your attachments. All of the key tractor functions such as the throttle, transmission speed, selective control valves (SCVs), and power take-off (PTO) are at your fingertips on the smartly configured CommandARM™ console.
Visibility and comfort is better than ever, especially when you rotate the seat 40 degrees for a nearly unobstructed view of your attachments. You will feel the difference after a day of work.
The optional ActiveCommand Steering system reduces steering effort to prevent operator fatigue:
The 7R Series makes sophisticated agricultural technology easy to operate. Everything is within easy reach on the CommandARM control stack and clearly viewable on the Generation 4 CommandCenter™ display.
Ease of use
Navigation is made easy with logical menus and a comprehensive shortcut bar. With Quick Line, you can now record an AB line with just one button press.
Tailor your 7R to your needs
Choose between the 21.3-cm (8.4-in.) 4200 CommandCenter Display and 26.4-cm (10.4-in.) 4600 CommandCenter Display.
ISOBUS Agricultural Industry Electronics Foundation (AEF) certified
The Generation 4 CommandCenter display is AEF ISOBUS compliant. You can control your ISOBUS-ready implement through the Universal Terminal (UT) and run automatic section control through Task Controller (TC-SC, TC-BAS), depending on the AEF certification level of the implement.
Even faster access to advanced functions
The CommandCenter display functions just like a tablet with touchscreens; navigating through the options is simplified via menus, shortcuts, and with context-sensitive help. And you can run our field-proven mainstream AMS solutions.

Virtually in the cab
You or your John Deere dealer can remotely log on to the Generation 4 CommandCenter display to assist operators with machine and ISOBUS implement setup and operation. In addition, on-screen help files enable operators to get familiar with all functions.
By adding the Extended Monitor to your tractor, you can easily move functionalities from one monitor to the other in order to maximise productivity by monitoring all your applications at once (e.g., vehicle control on your primary display and Precision Ag applications on the Extended Monitor).
All the daily tasks an operator needs to manage during his job requires different functions and levers to be operated at the same time. With the new generation of 7R Series Tractors, almost everything can be reconfigured on the CommandARM controls to meet the desires and requirements of the operator and his application.
Instead of SCV 1, you would like to operate the front hitch next to the rear hitch lever – no problem! Entering the control setup enables you to reconfigure all hydraulic functions on the joystick or on the SCV levers.
For even more operator comfort, ISOBUS-driven implements can be operated via the push buttons on the joystick. For the ultimate level of reconfigurability, easily set functions like loader auxiliaries, AutoTrac activation, iTEC™ control sequences, and gear-shifting to the joystick push buttons or SCVs, whereas the SCVs and front and rear hitches can be set to the axles of the joystick. And the best part is you can set up and recall all your settings individually per implement in the Settings Manager.
The Triple-Link Suspension Plus (TLS™ Plus) system increases both transport and field productivity with superior stability, ride, and comfort. The John Deere ActiveSeat™ equipment or the cab suspension allows the operator to increase productivity and decrease the effects of fatigue.
Our TLS integrated self-levelling front suspension puts maximum power to the ground. TLS Plus is a fully integrated, self-levelling front suspension system. It further improves traction by keeping the front wheels in contact with the ground and lets you increase field speeds. TLS Plus is available with a hydraulic differential lock for serious pulling power and wet-disc brakes. TLS Plus allows you to select front axle settings for different uses.
The John Deere ActiveSeat utilises electrohydraulic technology in combination with air suspension, providing the operator with enhanced ride quality over standard air-suspension seats. Operator movements are monitored in order to reduce vertical movement.
An ActiveSeat suspension can isolate the operator from up to 90 percent of vertical movements typically seen in tractor applications.
The cab suspension allows the operator to increase productivity and decrease the effects of fatigue. Regardless of the application, the cab suspension system by John Deere is proactive, permanently active, and cushions the operator in a variety of applications.
The LED option provides 40 percent greater coverage to the side view and 10 percent greater rearview coverage compared to standard halogen lighting.
The LED lighting on John Deere 7R Series Tractors provides high-quality white illumination for easier visibility and contrast. There are 22 LED lights providing 360-degree visibility. The result: night becomes like day, putting less strain on the eyes.
LEDs are virtually indestructible, with a minimum 10,000-hour life expectancy and high resistance to vibration and extreme temperature.
For your convenience, all lighting is easily controlled via the CommandCenter™ display.
Massive power combines with a wide range of easy-to-use hitch and PTO options to give you unprecedented versatility.
An integrated front hitch and PTO make the 7R Series an especially impressive performer in all front-implement applications, with two selective control valves (SCVs), ISOBUS, and double-acting cylinders.

John Deere Manure Sensing
Manure is a high-quality but extremely heterogeneous fertiliser. Nutrient levels vary significantly up to factor 25 – even within one tank load. John Deere Manure Sensing enables on-the-go analysis of nutrients in manure and thereby close to the applicator. A near-infrared (NIR) sensor fitted to the slurry tanker measures nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), potassium (K), ammonium (NH₄), and dry matter with more than 4,000 measurements per second. With a John Deere tractor, the sensor can directly command speed adjustments and automatically control the tankers flow valve to increase or decrease application rates based on your desired nutrient target level while leveraging a prescription map. This enables you to maximise yields and meet legal requirements while cutting costs on mineral fertiliser.
