The John Deere 5045E utility tractor is built with economy in mind. When you just need a powerful tractor that delivers what a tractor should deliver, but you don’t need all the bells and whistles that come with some of the more expensive models, then the 5045E is for you. Virginia Tractor has a number of John Deere 5045E tractors for sale in central Virginia, so if this no-nonsense machine appeals to you, drop on by today!
Simplicity and ease of use are the name of the game on the 5045E and are built into every part of the tractor. Starting with the engine and transmission. The straightforward 3-cylinder diesel engine. This powerful engine provides 50 hp and features an automatic regeneration system that requires no interaction or need for parking during normal operating temperatures. By running at a speed of 2100 rpm, the engine reduces fluid consumption, vibration and noise. All of which makes operation smoother and easier.
The transmission is similarly as easy. The 9F/3R SyncShuttle transmission is as simple and basic as it gets. Two platform mounted levers, gear lever to the right, range lever to the left, make operation comfortable and intuitive. The synchronized shuttle-shift capabilities mean that an operator can select speeds and even switch directions without having to completely stop the tractor beforehand.
The ease and simplicity also extend to the operator station. The redesigned seat and larger operators station mean you get more legroom to keep you comfortable. The controls have been brought closer and color-coded for easy identification. The thicker, redesigned seat features 28% extra thickness and 26% more seat height. It’s even positioned on springs with hydraulic dampers.
The category 2 3-point rear hitch is capable of attaching a huge variety of implements. The entire 5E series, including the 5045E, comes standard with sway bars and can be fitted with telescoping draft links to make attaching implements a snap. If you want, you can choose to opt into a category 1 hitch with the iMatch Quick-Hitch system that allows you to attach compatible implements without ever really having to leave your seat.
If what you want is just a basic, straightforward tractor that gets the job done without any of the flash, then the 5045E is the tractor you’re looking for. This tractor provides everything you need for any project you might have around the farm and allows you to do it with ease and comfort.
