From mowing hay to feeding it, from preparing fields to planting them, from in the field to on the road, the 7R Series Tractors can do it all. Impressive hitch-lift capacity, hydraulic flow, SCVs, an integrated front hitch and PTO, and ballasting options let you quickly change from loader work to heavy-duty field work and everything in between.
Integrated front hitch and PTO make the 7R Tractors an impressive performer in front-implement applications. The integrated and compact style maintains full manoeuvrability even with large front tyres. You can outfit the front hitch with a push-bar when your operation calls for front-mounted soil-engaging implements.
Designed with strength and versatility, the rear 3-point hitch has a lift capacity of 6,894 kg (15,200 lbs.) and up to 7,847 kg (17,300 lbs.) on select models.
162 l/min/223 l/min (43 gpm/59 gpm) more hydraulic output than competitive models means you can easily pull those implements with greater hydraulic demand.
Get up to six SCVs at the rear of the tractor, based on how you configure the tractor. For even more flexibility, you can get up to three mid-mounted SCVs for use with front-hitch implements or for attaching the 700M Loader. You can choose between 121, 163, 223 l/min (32-, 43-, and 59-U.S. gpm) flow to suit your needs. The closed-centre, pressure-and-flow compensated system provides ample flow, even at lower engine rpm, so you can gear up, throttle back, and still be productive. SCV controls are located on the CommandARM™ and offer adjustable flow rates and timed detents.
Now you can clearly see the drawbar while sitting in the operator’s seat – so you can easily back up and connect to an implement. A Category 3 drawbar with 2,700 kg (6,000 lbs.)maximum vertical-load capacity comes standard. Or, select the optional 4,536 kg (10,000 lbs.) vertical-load capacity Cat 3 drawbar for use with grain carts and slurry wagons.
Choose from a wide selection of tyres to fit a variety of row-crop, broadacre, and transport applications, including an expanded lineup of Group 48 duals, and Group 49 tyre options. Group 49s have a larger diameter and longer footprint for improved traction and reduced compaction when compared to smaller tyres of the same section-width and design.
The 7R Tractors offers two different economy three-speed options with electronic shifting from the CommandCenter™ Display. Choose the 540/540E/1000 or the 540E/1000/1000E option to match your implements and applications. When running in the economy mode, the tractor will produce rated PTO speeds at 1730 engine rpm. The 540- and 1000-rpm speeds allow for standard PTO operations for higher-power requirements within the constant power range. The 540E and 1000E option is good for any application that does not use full tractor power but needs a 540- or 1000-rpm output.
An independent, 45 mm (1 3/4-inch) 1000-rpm PTO is available if your operation calls for full-horsepower heavy-PTO applications, such as grain carts, rotovators, and silage choppers. PTO controls are located on the CommandARM™ Console for convenient operation.
Need the full-horsepower, heavy PTO and also a 35 mm (1 3/8-in) 540/1000-rpm PTO for use with augers, manure spreaders and rotary cutters? This manual, two-speed PTO option has a longer, easier-to-reach external shift lever. After swapping the ends of the PTO shaft, you simply shift the lever to select the 35 mm (1 3/8-in) 540/1000-rpm PTO position, then engage the PTO from inside the cab via the CommandARM.

The 7R Tractors also offer a choice of mechanical or electrical speed-change power take-off (PTO) options to provide the versatility and flexibility needed to satisfy implement demands at this power level. The PTO activation switch is located on the CommandARM™. In addition, PTO engagement modulation is adjustable with the settings located in the CommandCenter™.
It’s one thing to be capable and a whole other to be impressive. All John Deere mechanical front-wheel-drive (MFWD) axles are designed and built for demanding conditions while serving up plenty of strength and reliability for greater drawbar pulling power and increased productivity. You’ll also get sufficient traction with less ballasting resulting in reduced soil compaction. Both MFWD options give you a five-degree caster angle for tight turns, even with narrow tread spacings. A high-pivot-point axle mounting allows the front axle to oscillate nine degrees before contacting the axle stops. This helps the wheels maintain better ground contact. MFWD has electrohydraulic, automatic engagement, or you can manually engage or disengage the MFWD on-the-go if needed.
The 1150 utilises a twin-cylinder steering design for improved steering capacity. Ideal for heavy loader work and heavy-front ballast applications. The 1150 Series MFWD axle is available on the 7R 210 and is compatible with all 40 km/h (26 mph) 7R Tractor transmissions.
This reliable, robust, and durable axle has a high-capacity wet clutch and four-pinion, limited-slip differential that automatically transmits torque to the wheel to assist the tractor in tough or wet conditions. The 1300 Series MFWD axle comes in base on the 7R 230, 7R 250, 7R 270, 7R 290, 7R 310 and 7R 330 models.
The optional TLS Plus is a fully integrated, self-levelling front suspension system available on the 1300 Series MFWD axle. TLS Plus improves traction by keeping the front wheels in contact with the ground and lets you increase field speeds.
Bumps and jolts are absorbed by the system so you can work in comfort. TLS Plus also gives you impressive versatility in farmyards and feed yards as it automatically adjusts to front-end loads for steady performance. TLS Plus is available with a hydraulic differential lock and wet-disk brakes for serious pulling power and heavy-load transport needs.
In the Generation 4 CommandCenter™, the operator is able to select maximum pressure to accommodate for the transfer of heavy loads with minimal front axle movement. The differential lock is another feature of the 1300 Series MFWD axle with TLS Plus, driveline shield, hydraulic on/off differential lock, and wet-disk front brakes. When the rear differential lock is engaged or disengaged, the front differential lock is also engaged or disengaged. This also includes a driveline shield. If one wheel begins to slip, the differential lock can be engaged on-the-go and the axles are hydraulically locked together for maximum traction.
Connect the 700M Loader to your 7R Tractors and turn your tractor into the ultimate versatility machine. Load silage. Move round bales. Clean your feedlots. And more. The 700M is built with the added strength befitting the largest loader in our ag lineup, with mounting frames that are integrated into the tractor frame for a durable connection between the loader and the tractor. Oil lines are routed through the boom arms to protect them from damage. And a mechanical self-levelling linkage helps ensure the load remains at the same angle to the ground.
Loader controls are easy to learn – either use the SCV controls on the CommandARM™ Console or equip your tractor with a joystick and tailor control to your task. You can even equip your tractor with a left-hand reverser so you can change direction with your left hand while you keep your right hand on the loader controls for jolt-free loader work.
Go from feeding to mowing in tight places in minimal time. The 700M Loader uses single-point hydraulic and electrical connections, which makes parking the loader fast and easy – without tools, and with virtually no oil loss. The hood guard (standard with loader-ready package) helps protect the hood and grill from falling debris.
The ActiveCommand Steering (ACS) technology is an operator’s best friend. With ACS, John Deere has designed one of the most robust and encompassing steering system in the industry. Whether in the field or on the road, ACS reduces steering effort, so you stay fresh, comfortable and in control.
Dynamic road-wheel offset control. A gyroscope senses tractor yaw and can automatically make small steering adjustments to help you hold the line. If you encounter bumpy road, you’ll quickly notice that ACS makes it easier to keep the tractor straight, even over rough terrain delivering a more controlled and comfortable ride, even at transport speeds of 50 km/h (31 mph).
Variable-ratio steering changes the amount of effort required to turn the wheel based on conditions. You’ll make more turns of the wheel during transport for improved control. Variable-effort steering changes the resistance of the steering wheel in respect to ground speed for light steering effort at slower speeds and higher steering-wheel torque during transport speeds.
The 50 km/h (31-mph) option lets you move at faster speeds to haul more throughout the day. It’s available on tractors equipped with the e23™ Transmission or the Infnitely Variable Transmission (IVT™). These tractors also require Triple-Link Suspension (TLS™) Plus with a 1300 Series MFWD axle and brakes, trailer brakes (air or hydraulic), front fenders, and B-speed rated front and rear tyres. Row-crop duals are available with 50 km/h (31-mph) transmissions.
