Brakes

Hydraulic Trailer Brake Kit - BRE10035
7030 Series Large-Frame Tractors can be equipped with trailer brakes

The trailer brakes can be dual line air, hydraulic, or both.

Trailer brakes, dual line air
Air brake tankAir brake tank
Air brake couplersAir brake couplers

Code 9010, trailer brakes dual line air, provides the necessary components the brake system requires in order to hook up to an implement with air brakes. It allows the brakes to be set on the implement/trailer when parking the tractor and implement/trailer. The air brake system includes the compressor, tank, control valves and couplers. A field-installed option is also available for air brakes.

 

CAUTION: The agricultural tractor trailer air brake system is designed for use only with agricultural implements and agricultural trailers. This system is not compatible with the trailer air brake systems used by over-the-road vehicles and does not conform with the standards established for over-the-road trailer air contamination and electrical systems.

Trailer brakes, hydraulic valve

The hydraulic trailer brake system, code 9012, provides the necessary components the brake system requires in order to hook up to an implement with high-pressure hydraulic brakes. This is achieved by using delay valves that actuate the trailer brakes prior to tractor braking. A field-installed option is also available for air brakes.

Trailer brakes, dual line air and hydraulic valve

Factory-installed dual line air and hydraulic trailer brakes are provided with code 9062.

Manifold Trailer Brakes - BRE10032

Electrical

9-Pin Connector Implement Feedback - RE58827
9-pin electrical connector9-pin electrical connector

The 9-pin electrical connector is required to allow TouchSet depth control to be used with implements with this feature. The harness provides a position input to the tractor selective control valve unit enabling the TouchSet system.
 
This feature allows the operator to adjust height and depth of remote lift cylinders by using the TouchSet controls in the cab.

Battery Disconnect Switch - BRE10077
Battery disconnect installedBattery disconnect installed
#

Available as either a factory- or field-installed attachment, the battery disconnect switch is used to disconnect the batteries in preparation for 20-day to 90-day storage periods. The switch cuts the power to the entire tractor to aid in maintaining battery life.
 
An indicator light allows for safe and proper disconnect. The light will flash until it is safe to disconnect. This allows the diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) tank and lines to purge. (Final Tier 4 has an indicator light and Interim Tier 4 has no indicator light)

Mounting Parts for Radar with Dual Beam Sensor - CQ - RE324688
Dual-beam radar emission horns Dual-beam radar emission horns
Dual-beam radar (tracks tractor shown)Dual-beam radar (tracks tractor shown)

In today’s agricultural environment, accuracy and precision are more important than ever. For something as basic as ground speed, operators need key information for precise control of various implements and the tractor. To support these needs, tractors can be ordered with a dual-beam radar unit as a factory- or field-installed option.

 

There are several key features that have changed from previous designs.

 

First, there are two horns for exit of the radio beam. This dual-beam design assures a powerful and accurate signal that will cut through interference that at times makes single-beam units inaccurate. (See 1 in the image above for beam locations.) Dual-beam output makes radar less susceptible to hard surface or tall/wavy grass interference.

 

Accuracy is aided by a heavy-gauge mounting bracket and rubber isolators that reduce chances that vibration can affect the radio signal.

 

Dual-beam radar has a fast update rate. When the tractor comes to a stop, accelerates, or varies speed, the indicated ground speed on the tractor display will closely match the actual ground speed. This is important for implements that use radar speed to control operation such as planters, seeders, fertilizer applicators, and sprayers.

In addition, the dual-beam radar does not require calibration to assure accuracy. Its self-calibrating ability is sure to save setup time by elimination of a special procedure that was required in the past.

 

The radar true ground speed sensor activates the following CommandCenterTM or performance monitor readouts:

  • Percent slip
  • Hitch slip command (if equipped)


Radar usage improves the accuracy of the following CommandCenter or performance monitor functions:

  • Area covered
  • Area/hour
  • Distance and ground speed

Dual-beam units are compatible with controller area network (CAN) bus and International Organization for Standardization (ISO) bus electrical systems.

Hitch and Drawbar

Carrier to Ground Engaging, Front Hitch Conversion Kit - RE326580
Conversion from carrier version 11,450-lb lift capacity to ground-engaging 11,450-lb lift capacity for 7R Series Tractors
Heavy-duty front hitchHeavy-duty front hitch

Those who want more productivity out of the 7R Series Tractors with a carrier-version front hitch now have the ability to add tillage and other ground-engaging implements with the front-hitch conversion kit. The heavy-duty front hitch is recommended for the most demanding applications. It is designed for extreme stress from pushing hard on tillage implements, very wide implements, severe shock loads, or other heavy-duty applications. Premium hitches are also well suited for mounting three-point blades.

 

Field-installed kit RE326580 provides a set of heavy-duty lower hitch links, a push bar, and push bar mounting bracket. This hitch is suitable for use under normal conditions including primary tillage equipment or lifting heavy implements. The ground-engaging version is designed for full clearance and does not limit the turning radius at any tread width setting.

 

The tractor frame includes the mounting points for the push bar, making field conversion possible. Link conversion is possible by removing two pins for each link. Install the push bar with four cap screws in the front, four in the mid-chassis, and  tighten  two large jam nuts where the push bar attaches to the push bar bracket. There are no ground clearance trade-offs with the addition of the push bar and heavy-duty links. Both versions of the front hitch are entirely compatible with the FPTO (front power take-off).

 

The conversion kit to ground-engaging front hitch adds 117 kg (260 lb) of additional weight to the tractor.

Category 3 Adjustable Swinging Drawbar, with 38 mm (1.50 In.) Pin, Clevis, and Heavy Duty Support - BRE10209
Category 3 drawbarCategory 3 drawbar
#

 

The 7R Series Tractor comes with a Category 3 adjustable swinging drawbar with pin and clevis. The Category 3 drawbar is also available with the clevis and heavy-duty support.

 

The Category 3 drawbar with heavy-duty support has a vertical load capacity up to 4536 kg (10,000 lb). This high vertical load drawbar is ideal for applications such as large-capacity grain carts and slurry wagons.

 

All drawbar options provide an easy-to-use linkage that allows the drawbar pin to drop into the field position when hooking up to an implement. This linkage is activated when it is tapped by the implement drawbar.

Cat. 3 drawbar with clevis with pinCat. 3 drawbar with clevis with pin

High vertical load drawbar improves tractor versatility by being compatible with implements with high hitch vertical loads.

 

This Category 3 drawbar option includes a heavy-duty drawbar support with maximum drawbar static vertical load at 10,000 lb and can be adjusted to 10-, 14-, and 16-in. lengths required by PTO implements. Drawbar pin size is 1.5 in.

Applications:

 

Medium- to heavy-sized 3-point-hitch implements, such as row-crop cultivators, and typical- to heavy-sized drawn field implements such as a field cultivator, chisel plow, or loaded grain carts.

The front hitch/PTO ready option is ideal for any 7R Series Tractor that may be used for future applications requiring a front hitch or PTO. This option is also beneficial for increased resale value as it provides flexibility for future owners.

This option includes a front casting that accommodates, but it does not include a front hitch and front PTO.

  • With a mechanical front-wheel-drive (MFWD) axle, this option includes one set of hydraulic oil lines to connect the front hitch and mid-mount selective control valve (SCV). Mid-mount valves must be purchased separately. Additional hydraulic lines can be field installed allowing up to two front auxiliary couplers with a John Deere field-installed hitch.
  • On tractors with a Triple-Link Suspension (TLS™) front axle, the option includes three sets of hydraulic lines to connect the front hitch to the mid-mount SCV and up to two front auxiliary couplers. Mid-mount valves must be purchased separately.

In-cab controls for front PTO and front hitch have to be ordered through Parts when ordering the front PTO and front hitch field-installed options.

 

Front hitch ready tractors are not shipped with standard front weight support. A front weight support that bolts to the tractor can be ordered as a factory- or field-installed option (RE326583). The weight support is compatible with suitcase weights (up to 24) and with the 900-kg or 1150-kg (1984-lb or 2535-lb) monster pick-up (monster) weights.

 

Front weight support is not compatible with front hitch and must be removed before a hitch can be installed.

 

The sixth rear electrohydraulic SCV is not compatible with front hitch options because of the mid-mount hydraulics for front hitch.

 

Field-installed hitch options for front hitch/PTO ready tractors:

  • Premium (ground-engaging) front hitch with push bar
  • Standard (carrier version) front hitch less push bar

HYDRAULIC TRAILER BRAKE KIT - BRE10297

The 7R and 8R Series Tractors offer dual-line hydraulic trailer brakes, dual-line air trailer brakes, or dual-line air and dual-line hydraulic trailer brakes, which allow the tractor braking system to connect to implements with high-pressure air or hydraulic brakes. Both systems automatically balance the brake pressure of both the tractor and implement to provide comfortable braking performance.

Trailer brake settings are fully customizable by adjusting gain and pre-brake settings. Trailer brake gain will give customers the ability to adjust how aggressive the trailer brakes are as the tractor brake pedal is depressed. Pre-brake adjustment will allow operators to adjust when the brakes are initiated in reference to the tractor brake pedal being depressed. This along with AutoClutch™ system settings will help the operator achieve optimum braking performance of both tractor and implement. Operators will also be able to test the trailer brake park release while the tractor is still in park during connecting and pre-trip activities.

To assist hooking up large equipment where multiple connections are required, factory-installed auxiliary hydraulic couplers are available.

Auxiliary sump coupler

The sump coupler kit allows oil to return from the hydraulics motor at low pressures. This coupler is required for correct attachment to current-production seeding products with case drain lines. The connector in the sump port is not to be used to carry return flow from a function to the tractor.

This coupler is required for correct attachment to current-production seeding products with case drain lines.

Hydraulic motor return couplers

The hydraulic motor return couplers can be used as couplers for return oil flow, from hydraulic orbital motors and other devices, to the tractor's low-pressure return port, labeled R on the tractor.

 

Use of this connector specifically in the return to sump port position is for hydraulic components that require a leak-off line connection to the tractor. Components and implements that require this typically are larger orbital motors that require a drain for seal protection. The connector in the sump port is not to be used to carry return flow from a function to the tractor.

Power beyond couplers

Power beyond provides live hydraulic power to equipment. This kit supplies oil pressure to implements when the engine is running.

 

Any implement using power beyond must have a way to control oil flow. Use an independent control valve that is pressure-and-flow compensating (supplied separately) to control the oil flow rate from this coupler set. Power-beyond functions require a load-sense signal to regulate pump pressure, therefore, a load-sense hydraulic line is used. Certain equipment may require modification.

Lighting

Lights, Field Vision Xenon HID Rear Fender Light - RE269641
Xenon HID lights improve nighttime visibility
HID lights HID lights

John Deere has taken advantage of advanced lighting technology. This lighting provides the operator with industry-leading performance in nighttime visibility.

The important part of the system is the use of Xenon high-intensity discharge (HID) bulbs. These bulbs provide extreme brightness and a daylight color output for excellent definition of the field. The performance of this system allows the operator to easily view as much as 250 percent farther ahead, compared to previous tractors. A further benefit is there are no filaments in the HID bulb. Bulb life is increased by as much as 10 times vs. filament-style bulbs.

Standard lightingStandard lighting
FieldVision lightingFieldVision lighting
Front FieldVision lighting
Front HID locationsFront HID locations
Roof lighting locationRoof lighting location

The front lighting package adds three high-intensity discharge (HID) lights to the front grille (see 1 in the image above). To further enhance all-around tractor lighting, there are two additional 65-W halogen work lights added to the left- and right-hand cab roof.

 

The center of the bulb has a semi-spot lens, and the outer light housings have a flood lens. In row-crop, the operator will notice there is a longer beam of light in the center for following marker furrows. The overall width of the lighting pattern for a non-row-crop operation will be obvious so tilled or seeded passes are easily identified. The inner, larger-diameter light assemblies are used for road transport and use conventional halogen 60-/55-W H4 bulbs. These larger light housings are also used in the base lighting system. With the dual-wattage H4 bulb, the operator will notice that there is a true automotive-style high/low function when operating in the road position.

 

The cab roof lights can be adjusted to aim to the side or rear of the tractor.

Rear FieldVision lighting
Rear FieldVision HID lightingRear FieldVision HID lighting

The premium HID lighting package (code 1720) adds two adjustable-position HID lights on the rear fenders.

 

Unlike aftermarket lights where the operating ballast is integral, these lights use a smaller housing with remote-mounted ballast.  The smaller housing decreases obstruction for a clear view looking out the rear window.  Using the light’s wide-angle flood lens will make it much easier to monitor the widest or longest equipment available.

Intelligent Power Management (IPM)

IPM is compatible with 7R and 8R Series Tractors equipped with a front PTO option. The front PTO, rear PTO, or transport speeds can activate IPM on 7R Tractors. However, on 8R Tractors, IPM is only activated by the rear PTO or by transport speeds. For example:

  • A front snow blower will not benefit from IPM on an 8R since the front PTO alone will not activate IPM.
  • A triple-mounted mower-conditioner will benefit from IPM as high power levels are transmitted via the rear PTO. The front mower-conditioner will have 150 hp available to it on an 8R, which is adequate to operate these mowers in most crop conditions.
  • See Intelligent Power Management for more information
PTO disconnect on 7R Series Tractors

Disconnecting the PTO drive to the PTO box when not in use increases tractor efficiency by reducing:

  • Power requirements, which saves nearly 70 percent of power required to run the PTO disengaged
  • Wear on components of the PTO box; components are not moving when the PTO is disconnected

Refer to the operator’s manual for instructions on how to disconnect the PTO when not in operation.

IPM

NOTE: IPM is only available for Tier 3/Stage IIIA, Interim Tier 4/Stage IIIB, Final Tier 4/Stage IV engines, and not for Stage II engines.

 

This feature is for many typical farming operations that use the rear power take-off (PTO) in high-power applications or the tractor as a transport vehicle. Operators who are looking for more power in non-stationary PTO and transport applications will be interested in the IPM feature.

 

In high rear PTO power applications such as forage harvesters, rototillers, and beet or potato harvesting equipment or where heavy trailers, carts, or implements are moved to and from various locations, this feature provides significant additional capabilities. The solution improves productivity with more consistent ground speeds, quicker acceleration, and the ability to better hold desired transport speeds.

 

This two-in-one tractor solution successfully operates in power-intensive PTO and transport applications at reasonable low fuel consumption without being disadvantaged by the higher weight, the bigger proportions, and the extra costs of the next higher horsepower model.

 

This feature is available as a factory- or field-installed option.

Tractor applications
8R Tractor in transport8R Tractor in transport
#

Rear PTO field applications

  • Rear-mounted snow blowers
  • Sugar beet harvesting
  • Forage harvesters
  • Potato harvesting
  • Rotary cutters
  • Mower conditioners
  • Flail mowers
  • Balers
  • Soil stabilizing
  • Power harrow
  • Vegetable bed formers
  • Muck spreaders

 

Transport applications

  • Grain carts or wagons
  • Slurry tanks
  • Implement transport from field to field
  • Pull-type sprayers
  • Extensive operation in hills/roadways

 

This is not intended to be an inclusive list of all applications but shows the wide range of uses for additional engine horsepower.

Power available

IPM provides engine power increase in levels proportional to the size of the tractor. IPM provides a controlled power boost of up to 26 kW (35 engine hp) to tractor under the following operating conditions:

  • Tractor moving and PTO under load
  • Transport during acceleration
  • Transport during deceleration

Power increase is not provided under draft applications or non-loaded rear PTO applications. Power increase is only provided when required.

How it works

There are specific operating parameters when IPM functions to boost engine power. It is the "intelligent" part of the system that provides seamless operation while adjusting the engine horsepower depending on how the tractor is being used.  For engine horsepower boost activation, the tractor must already be running an application that is using the full power capability of the tractor.

 

PTO activation

Power must be sensed going through the PTO drive clutch by the tractor's electronic systems. The tractor must be moving at least 0.5 km/h (0.3 mph) and PTO consuming moderate power before power boost engages. The speeds shown above, assume lowest possible gear or speed setting and the engine running at 2100 rpm.

 

NOTE:  If the tractor is equipped with a front PTO, additional IPM power will transfer through the front PTO.  However, IPM activation is only sensed through the rear PTO. Adequate load must be sensed on the rear PTO in order for IPM to activate.

Transport activation

 

When in transport applications, power transition is smooth. The engine will respond seamlessly as load changes, such as when going up and down hills. Additional power is available at a useful working speed with minor differences between tractor models and transmissions.

 

The minimum ground speed is where additional power will begin to be applied, assuming the engine is already fully loaded. Ramp up to full additional power occurs as speed continues to increase. Full additional power occurs within a 3 mph (5 km/h) band.

 

Transport during acceleration: power boost occurs in steps through the range from 23 km/h – 28 km/h (14.3 mph – 17.4 mph).

Transport during deceleration: power boost ramps down in equal steps in the range from 23 km/h – 18 km/h (14.3 mph – 11.2 mph).

Power boost levels other than at rated rpm

Some operators will run the tractor at full loads and/or run transmissions in auto mode in transport. This means that the engine most likely will not be operating at rated rpm. As the engine is loaded, it will eventually drop off of rated rpm and use the power bulge as rpm slows. This is the way every John Deere PowerTech™ Plus engine operates when it is loaded to maximum power and torque.

Usable rpm range of operation (8345R shown)Usable rpm range of operation (8345R shown)
#

IPM (shown in purple in chart above versus standard power shown in blue) provides additional engine horsepower from rated engine speed down to approximately 1600 rpm (shown on the x-axis in image above, with power kilowatt shown in the y-axis), which is peak engine torque.

 

Horsepower levels are increased above base equipment power bulge values.

 

If the PTO is engaged and the engine rpm stays near rated speed of 2100 rpm, the full additional power potential for the tractor model will be available for use to handle additional load from the implement or changing terrain.

 

If the PTO is not in use and in transport operation, and the rpm has dropped off of rated speed, usable additional power boost of IPM will taper off as rpm decreases. The chart above (with 8345R Tractor power curves) shows the relationship of how much additional usable horsepower is available in the operating range. All tractors operate in a similar manner with this feature.

Operator visibility and control of operation
Engine power displayEngine power display
#

 

All tractors have the power meter display function as base equipment. The operator can observe when full capabilities of the tractor are being utilized. This function graphically displays power utilization up to rated horsepower and power bulge.

 

The power meter can be found in the CommandCenter™ display. If the engine is off or has minimal load, the power meter will not fill in. The meter is similar in concept to a cellular phone's signal-strength meter. As the power increases, it will fill in bars in an icon. The display will also show the level of additional power being used. The long section represents up to the rated power. The smaller section represents power bulge and is an indicator of additional power available with IPM.

 

Via the CommandCenter, there is also the ability to enable or disable the function. The operator's manual provides simple details about navigating the engine screen.

 

IPM is automatically enabled each time the tractor is started.

Tractor compatibility with additional power

IPM has been thoroughly tested by John Deere engineers to be compatible with the base tractor equipment with no impact to reliability. John Deere provides IPM as opposed to unapproved aftermarket devices that boost power without regard to engine, transmission, axles, and drawbar, or hitch capability.

 

This feature provides optimal utilization of tractor components. For example, with PTO operation, power goes through axles to move the tractor along the ground and turn the PTO shaft and implement. Adding power to both of these systems does not overload either one individually. At transport speeds, drive train torque load decreases significantly from levels seen at low field speeds. Adding power at transport does not overload transmissions or axles.

 

Aftermarket devices are not selective when power increases are available. Great amounts of power increase are promised with these devices. Large power changes are not compatible with base tractor equipment. To note, base tractor equipment changes as power increases. Larger parts, like hitches, drawbars, tire size, drive train components, axle diameters, and engine calibrations for emission performance and cooling, ensure durability of the total vehicle as power increases. Operating outside of the design capabilities of the tractor base equipment will have an impact on durability and reliability.

The front hitch/PTO ready option is ideal for any 7R Series Tractor that may be used for future applications requiring a front hitch or PTO. This option is also beneficial for increased resale value as it provides flexibility for future owners.

This option includes a front casting that accommodates, but it does not include a front hitch and front PTO.

  • With a mechanical front-wheel-drive (MFWD) axle, this option includes one set of hydraulic oil lines to connect the front hitch and mid-mount selective control valve (SCV). Mid-mount valves must be purchased separately. Additional hydraulic lines can be field installed allowing up to two front auxiliary couplers with a John Deere field-installed hitch.
  • On tractors with a Triple-Link Suspension (TLS™) front axle, the option includes three sets of hydraulic lines to connect the front hitch to the mid-mount SCV and up to two front auxiliary couplers. Mid-mount valves must be purchased separately.

In-cab controls for front PTO and front hitch have to be ordered through Parts when ordering the front PTO and front hitch field-installed options.

 

Front hitch ready tractors are not shipped with standard front weight support. A front weight support that bolts to the tractor can be ordered as a factory- or field-installed option (RE326583). The weight support is compatible with suitcase weights (up to 24) and with the 900-kg or 1150-kg (1984-lb or 2535-lb) monster pick-up (monster) weights.

 

Front weight support is not compatible with front hitch and must be removed before a hitch can be installed.

 

The sixth rear electrohydraulic SCV is not compatible with front hitch options because of the mid-mount hydraulics for front hitch.

 

Field-installed hitch options for front hitch/PTO ready tractors:

  • Premium (ground-engaging) front hitch with push bar
  • Standard (carrier version) front hitch less push bar

The new shape of the 1500 kg and 1800 kg pick-up weights allows a quick and safe mounting.
This is ensured by an optimal alignment of the weight and the tractor along with a self-centering design.
Major benefits of the new design:

  • Easy and comfortable
  • Less time is required
  • Lower risk of injury

Due to the user-friendliness, an optimal ballasting of the tractor is guaranteed at any time.
The performance of the tractor is used to a greater extent, which leads to higher productivity and a reduction in fuel consumption.

The weights cannot be front installed in combination with Quik-Tatch front weights.

 

NOTE: Ballast should be limited by the lowest of either tire capacity or tractor capacity. The carrying capacity of each tire should not be exceeded. For more ballasting information refer to the operator's manual and ballast calculator.

Weight, 970 kg Outer Wheel Weight - BRE10026
For operators requiring additional ballast or additional traction on the rear axle

72-kg (159-lb), 205-kg (452-lb), 625-kg (1378-lb), and 970-kg (2138-lb) cast rear-wheel weights are available for the 7R and 8R Series Tractors. The attaching hardware for all rear-wheel weight options may be ordered through parts.

 

The range of rear-wheel weights can provide the proper amount of rear axle ballast for a variety of applications. The addition of this ballast will increase traction on the rear axle of the tractor. These weights can also be used to counterbalance the effect of adding additional weight on the front axle in the form of a front weight support, front hitch, front spray tanks, and front-end loaders.

 

72-kg (159-lb) starter weight

The 72-kg (159-lb) cast rear-wheel weight is offered individually as attachment R167153. This weight can be used either as an inner or outer rear-wheel weight. The 72-kg (159-lb) weight can be used by itself or as a starter weight for the 205-kg (452-lb) rear-wheel weights.

 

205-kg (452-lb) weight

The 205-kg (452-lb) cast rear-wheel weight is offered individually as attachment R07782. The 72-kg (159-lb) starter weight (R167153) must be installed prior to the 205-kg (452-lb) weight on rear steel wheels. This practice is optional on cast wheels; however, most weight packages will be configured this way.

 

625-kg (1378-lb) weight

R167151 includes one 625-kg (1378-lb) cast inner rear-wheel weight. This weight is to be used on the inside of the rear wheel assembly. This option can be stacked on a double-flat cast hub, with a 70-kg (154-lb) starter ring on the outside.

 

70-kg (154-lb) weight 

BRE10026 features a 70-kg (154-lb) starter weight. The starter weight and guide lugs provide improved installation and removal of the 900-kg (1984-lb) weight. This weight can be used individually on the outside of the steel, dual rims on rack-and-pinion axles, or on the outside of the double-flat, single-taper wheel hub. For the approved cast hubs, can also be used with the inner cast weights as well.

 

NOTE: Use on the outer side of approved cast hubs will limit dual tire and spacing capability.

 

900-kg (1984-lb) weight   

Individual R341378 900-kg (1984-lb) weights ordered through Parts. The 70-kg (154-lb) starter weight is required for installation, and provides guide lugs for improved installation and removal of the 900-kg (1984-lb) weight. 900-kg (1984-lb) weight ballast option is compatible with steel, dual wheels with rim diameters of 106.7, 116.8 cm, or 127 cm (42 in., 46 in., 50 in., or 54 in.). This allows the weights to be added to only the outer rear dual on a rack-and-pinion axle and double-flat axle with single-taper hub.

 

NOTE: This weight option is not compatible with 96.5-cm or 137.2-cm (38-in. or 54-in.) wheels.
