Visibility is one of the most important attributes of the cab, but it is more than just lighting. In addition to lighting, John Deere visibility packages include mirrors, sunshades, wipers, and camera readiness. Some benefits of the visibility packages include:

8R Tractors offer a variety of suspension options to fit your specific field conditions or application. There are three options to choose from on 8R Tractors. An air seat with fixed cab offers a great balance of field and road comfort in an economical package. Cab suspension with an air seat reduces high-frequency vibrations typically associated with road transport. The ActiveSeat™ II equipment is typically chosen for field applications to reduce vertical movement and operator fatigue.
Independent-Link Suspension (ILS™) primarily helps deliver power to the ground by maintaining proper tire-to-ground contact through a fully independent system. In addition, ILS greatly improves ride over rough or uneven terrain and drastically decreases power hop.
All 8 Series Tractors come standard with an 85-cc (5.2-cu in.) hydraulic pump. This pump provides up to 227.1 L/min (60 gpm) hydraulic flow. A dual pump option featuring 85-cc and 35-cc (5.2-cu in. and 2.1-cu in.) displacement hydraulic pumps is available for all 8R and 8RX Tractors. The dual-pump system provides a hydraulic flow of 318 L/min (84 gpm), ideal for running at lower engine speeds. At the rear, up to six selective control valves (SCVs) are available with 1.9-cm (3/4-in.) options.
A power beyond option is available on all models, and a high-capacity take-out oil reservoir (on 8R Tractors only) is also available for high-demand applications.
When you reach a 40-hour week by Wednesday, you're logging some serious hours in the cab. Spend that time in the refreshed and refined John Deere cab, and experience a quiet, comfortable ride with unrivaled visibility and convenience.
