      Built for the Long Haul

      Longer engine life
      The new Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) enables a constant engine speed, reducing engine wear while ensuring excellent fluid economy. Proven components, simplified electronics, and internally routed hoses further bolster durability.

       

      Low total fluid consumption
      John Deere FT4 engines maintain engine performance while minimizing total fluid consumption – diesel fuel plus diesel exhaust fluid (DEF). The exceptionally low DEF consumption rate reduces the need for DEF by four to six times compared to some other FT4 systems.

       

      Increased power and stability
      L-Series machines combine best-in-class horsepower and an impressive power-to-weight ratio with a constant engine speed – for superb responsiveness and maximum efficiency. Better machine balance optimizes power, while improving stability when climbing hills, navigating adverse terrain, or hauling bigger payloads.

       

      Effortless operation
      Armrest-mounted electrohydraulic controls provide fingertip control of all machine functions and turn with you when you use the optional rotating seat. Optional joystick steering is smooth and responsive, providing intuitive, low-effort control of steering, direction, and ground speed.
