Heavy-duty MFWD front axle with limited slip Heavy-duty MFWD front axle with limited slip
MFWD 55-degree turn angle MFWD 55-degree turn angle
MFWD indicator light MFWD indicator light

Limited-slip, heavy-duty MFWD front axle will provide operators with increased drawbar pull and improved traction when operating in slippery conditions. This ensures the operator gets the required torque to the ground for applications that demand more from the tractor. The MFWD front axle also reduces wheel slippage with less tractor ballasting for reduced soil compaction, increased fuel economy, and longer tire life.

The MFWD centerline design provides excellent maneuverability around the worksite and more crop clearance so producers aren't driving down their crop or profits. Additional versatility is proven when wheel treads are adjusted with 6 degrees of caster angle and a 55-degree turn angle, which results in a turning radius as short as 3 m (9.9 ft) (brakes applied), allowing plenty of horsepower to turn around in tight places. 10 degrees of axle oscillation follows uneven terrain, allowing for consistent performance and comfortable ride.

Axle oscillation also reduces the stress and maintenance cost on the axle spindles because loads are consistently spread across the entire axle. The centerline design eliminates the need for drive shaft universal joints that require regular maintenance. Anti-wrap shielding on the driveline is standard to prevent crop material and debris from building around the driveline and ensures tractor performance. Three grease points are conveniently located to minimize maintenance time while maximizing front axle performance.

NOTE: The MFWD engagement lever is located on the left-hand side of the operator's seat. For the operator’s convenience, when MFWD is engaged, an indicator light will appear on the dash.

2WD front axle and cab on 41- to 55.9-kW (55- to 75-hp) 5E Tractors 2WD front axle and cab on 41- to 55.9-kW (55- to 75-hp) 5E Tractors

Made of heavy-duty steel for added reliability, the 2WD front axle is adjustable in 50.8-mm (2-in.) increments to adapt to a wide variety of applications. 

  • The front axle provides 10 degrees of axle oscillation, allowing the axle to follow uneven terrain for a consistent performance, comfortable ride, and reduced stress and maintenance costs on axle spindles.
  • A 55-degree turn angle provides excellent maneuverability for high-torque tasks in tight spaces.
  • The steering cylinder is bolted directly to the rear of the front axle, so the axle housing protects the steering cylinder from potential punctures created by rough terrain, rocky soil conditions, or thick crop material.

 

Broadening the 5E 3-Cylinder Tractor product lineup to offer a 2WD front axle in a cab configuration provides you with the well-known benefits of the 5E 3-Cylinder Tractors in conjunction with the ability to stay out of the elements and have the tighter turning radius that 2WD front axles provide.

Adding ease to operation
Enhanced operator controls Enhanced operator controls

Operator comfort is important regardless of the application. Improving the 5E 3-Cylinder Tractor models, the hand throttle has been relocated to the right-hand console. This is 30.5 cm (12-in.) closer to the operator and within easy reach versus the previous location on the center-hand console. Operators may also notice the additional legroom provided by the repositioned loader controls, providing a more enjoyable experience.

Nine forward and three reverse speeds with in-line synchronized shuttle shifting

The SyncShuttle transmission is designed to match the excellent power and torque characteristics of the John Deere PowerTech™ engines. Transmission durability is enhanced with the pressure-lubricated top shaft, allowing an operator to achieve performance from one working season to the next. Additionally, this in-base transmission is configured with fixed draft links, single-speed power take-off (PTO) and mechanical PTO engagement.

 

The transmission is characterized as full top shaft synchronized (TSS) when forward shifting on-the-go between speeds, and is characterized a synchronized while depressing the clutch.

Nine forward and three reverse (9F/3R) speeds are achieved by using two platform-mounted levers for shift operation. The gear lever at the operator's right hand selects one of three forward gears and one reverse gear, as well as the integrated park position. The range lever at the operator's left hand selects collar-shift A, B, and C ranges.

Operators can easily switch directions without having to completely stop the tractor with synchronized, in-line, shuttle-shift capability between forward and reverse gears on the gear-shift lever in all three ranges (A, B, and C ranges).

A neutral start switch requires the gear-shift lever be in the neutral or park positions to start the engine.

A positive park pawl on the transmission provides positive park and eliminates the need for a hand brake. This also eliminates clutch service costs that occur when the park brake is accidentally left engaged.

Electrohydraulic reverser lever Electrohydraulic reverser lever

The John Deere-built PowrReverser transmission provides 12 forward and 12 reverse gears for operators requiring additional flexibility for multiple applications. It comes standard with shiftable 540/540 Economy power take-off (PTO) and electronically activated, telescoping draft links. This transmission is ideal for operators using their tractors to perform in versatile applications.

 

Hydraulic wet forward and reverse clutches maximize durability and will outlast the life of any dry clutch. When tractors are run by multiple operators with a variety of experience levels, a wet clutch is the best way to maintain transmission integrity and performance while decreasing clutch replacement costs.

 

The gear lever selects one of four speeds, all synchronized shifts for on-the-go shifting with the use of the clutch. The range lever selects collar-shift A, B, and C ranges, which are not synchronized.

 

Maximum productivity is achieved with hydraulic PowerShift between forward and reverse and is ideal for loader and rear-blade applications that require frequent directional switches in tight spaces. Excellent modulation allows the operator to shift the direction lever from neutral to forward or reverse, forward to reverse, reverse to forward, or to neutral from forward or reverse.

 

Operators can accomplish all these directional changes without sacrificing comfort or having to depress the clutch pedal. The speed of directional changes can be adjusted to the operator's preference or application demands with the field-installed infinitely-variable control kit.

 

The PowrReverser transmission also allows the operator to steer and shift direction with the left hand, freeing the right hand to operate other tractor controls, such as the loader, rear implements, or hand throttle.

Constant-mesh, helical-cut gears provide quieter operation and excellent reliability while the pressure-lubricated top shaft adds to the transmission durability. Fully enclosed, rigid shift linkages for short throw and crisp shifts enable all operators to clearly know in what range and gear they are operating.

 

Positive park pawl on the transmission provides positive park and eliminates the need for a hand brake.

 

This also eliminates clutch service costs that occur when the park brake is accidentally left engaged. A neutral start switch requires the directional lever to be in the neutral position to start the engine.

Shiftable 540/540 economy PTO (5E) for open operator station (OOS) tractors Shiftable 540/540 economy PTO (5E) for open operator station (OOS) tractors

The 540 economy PTO option comes in base equipment with the 12F/12R PowrReverser™ transmission.

 

The 540/540 economy PTO allows operators to select the engine rpm for reduced fuel consumption, reduced noise levels, reduced vibration, and less wear and tear on the engine, while at the same time keeping the proper 540 rpm at the PTO.

 

The economy PTO provides 540 rpm to the PTO at 1600 engine rpm. The 540 economy mode is ideal for any PTO application, from running a mower-conditioner to a baler or a cutter, where full engine horsepower is not required.

 

Operating at lower engine rpm decreases fuel costs up to 30 percent and provides additional productivity by improving the operating experience through enhanced operator comfort from reduced noise and vibration.

 

A lever allows the operator to simply change between 540 and 540E when conditions merit the opportunity to save fuel without affecting performance.

 

For heavy-duty operations requiring maximum PTO power, the PTO shift lever is placed in the 540 position, the PTO is engaged, and the engine is run at a rated speed of 2100 rpm. This selection gives 540 rpm to the PTO shaft and delivers the fully advertised horsepower at rated engine speed.

 

When the cab tractor is in economy PTO mode, the engine is electronically limited to 1600 rpm, preventing accidental over speeding of PTO implements and protecting against binding the PTO shaft.

 

This interlock also prevents accidental shifting of the PTO selector lever at engine speeds above 1600 rpm, which would lead to downtime for fixing implements or drivetrain components.

Poor quality

1/5

Bought this tractor in late 2017- have had problems every year since. Machine seems to be afraid of a hay field as it has a problem every year when hay season starts. When all is working it’s a handy and comfortable tractor but the failures are not worth the hassle- especially on a machine with only 200 hours on it. Look elsewhere.

Powerful workhorse

5/5

Me my dad bought this 5075e for just using on our 27 acre farm. We have 38hp John Deere 1070 thats about 20 years old now. Overall this tractor is great, We haven't put much hours on this unit. We also have the 520m loader which the hose assembly was ok however we had to make some adjustment where the hose mounting brackets where hitting the tire whenever it turn right. That wasn't really a big issue but other than that this tractor has telescoping end link on the lower 2 control arms and make hooking up implement way easier. Plus the 12/12 is very good use for loader work.

So far so good

4/5

I traded my open cab 4300 tractor of 20 years for a 5075e cab tractor with a 240 loader. Tired of dressing to ride snowmobile to blow snow. It’s much more of a tractor I’m used to, 12/12 transmission, cab, turbo to name a few. Find it’s warm blooded, foot throttle is hard to press, reverse is faster than foward speed in same gear, but over all it’s awesome. I have a 97” blower coming and there is no doubt in my mind it will handle the job.

Great tractor, but

4/5

My 2016 5075 with only 60 hours has leaked universal transmission fluid sine the day I bought it. It’s an isolated leak difficult to locate. A JD mechanic looked at it a year ago when the local dealer brokered it to me the local dealer brokered it to me a year ago with 22 hours. He found one leak, could not locate the other. So I have a relatively new JD which I keep adding transmission fluid and meanwhile i leave cardboard under it to rote the my shop floor. Aggravating. 5 stars all the way if not for this on going issue.

great tractor for the money

4/5

I bought a 5075E Cab tractor with an H240 loader in March of 2017. I went with the 12/12 transmission. It's been a great tractor. Very little issues. I use the tractor daily on my livestock operation and we have logged over 1000 hours doing numerous chores. Loader work, hay chores, bush hogging, etc. I wish the tractor had more fuel capacity so I could run longer in the hay field without stopping. Tractor is a little weak in the top end but all in all well worth the money.

Tough Tractor!

5/5

Purchased a new 5075E OOS and loader with 4 way Frontier bucket in early 2019. In 2018, I purchased a new 5100M with premium cab and loader. While I love them both, I have already logged more hours on the 5075. I've used it on the farm for everything from tree and brush removal to mowing for about a year now and have had zero issues. Plenty of power, and easy to maneuver in tight places. If you add the loader, be sure to choose the power reverser transmission. If you are in the market for a tough, reliable tractor, this is the one!

Pros

  • ease of operation
  • plenty of power
  • dependable

Cons

  • have not found one!

Good for the weekend farmer

5/5

Tractor got plenty room in cab. Air/heat works great, radio is fairly good as well. The only negative thing I can say is the tractor is kinda weak to be a 75 horse power tractor. I have a 5303 and it feels like it has more torque/power.

Pros

  • roomy cab
  • mulitple hydraulic ports
  • quick connect loader
  • no def fluid

Cons

  • small fuel tank
  • weak for a 75hp tractor

Work horse

4/5

The tractor is very nice, however, the foot throttle is not user friendly. My biggest complaint would be the fuel efficiency, or lack there of. I've tried 540e and 540 and both are terrible on fuel. Other than that, this tractor is great! A real work horse for hay farming and bush hogging, as well as plowing and planting.

5/5

I have had my cab 5075e for 3 months. I have pulled my 12ft batwing over head high grass and the tractor acts like there is no grass there. Pulling a 6ft is a joke to this tractor. The cab is quite the radio is great. Overall a tractor that i love as much as my wife ( dont tell her that). You wont regret your purchase if you buy this tractor, good on fuel also.

Pros

  • awesome with any implement
  • awesome front end loader capacity

Great tractor for the money

5/5

Traded in a 4320 open station 2008 model on a 2019 5075E cab tractor with loader. Got my tractor from united in Rhome TX. Excellent customer service. Very fast getting the unit ready to go. I needed a larger tractor to haul over to our other farm, made the decision while flying back from seattle to DFW. had wifi on the plane, did the entire deal while flying including the trade in. Had papers waiting when I drove by the Rhome United ag store and signed and picked up the tractor the next morning and headed out. Put 20 hours clearing brush and mowing that weekend and everything worked flawlessly and AC is very good, was over 100 out. It does like fuel when pushing it, tank could be a bit bigger but overall its a great value. I have watched the reviews for a while and while early units did have some teething issues. i think John Deere has listened and its a good value product. Im happy with it.

Excellent tractor for my 37 acres!

5/5

I have owned several other open station John Deere tractors and decided this year to upgrade to a cab. AC and heat are awesome, and I added the bluetooth radio for those long day of mowing or other field work. I like the fact that you do not have a DEF system with these 75 HP tractors. The power Reverser transmission is smooth, and the controls are conveniently located. I am very satisfied with my purchase.

Lots of power and great overall tractor

5/5

We’ve owned this tractor for about a year and we’ve let it see some work, it handles multiple tasks around the farm and around the house with ease. So far it hasn’t met its match with the 520 loader attached, John Deere doesn’t only produce sweet looking tractors, they produce work horses that are safe and reliable for any job. Haven’t had any issues so far and it’s easy to service and maintain. I’d buy three more if I had the money haha. I didn’t just pick 5 stars for no reason, this tractor has earned its rating and more in my book.

Pros

  • power

Been an excellent tractor so far.

5/5

I bought my 4WD 2018 open station 5075E back in April so I've had it for 7 months. Added a 520M FEL and the adjustable knob for the powershuttle to adjust the speed and firmness of the forward to reverse shift. So far it's been a very good machine. No real big issues with it. It's strong, quiet, has great visibility off it, and for its size it is a very nimble machine especially considering it's a 3 ton machine without the loader. It's a little on the thirsty but nothing terrible. It doesn't get the best MPG's I've seen, but not the worst either. My guess is the emissions equipment that tractor manufactures are forced to use now probably hurt the fuel economy some. Speaking of which I have over 60 hours on it and it has yet to hit to hit its first regen but I do use it at WOT a lot so it likely is self-regenning. Has no issues at all handling a 9' disc mower, or 4x5 baler. I've also bush hogged some fairly heavy stuff and also no problem for it but a 6' bush hog should give a 73 HP tractor any issues. I've pulled some 5"+ trees up with it, and pulled some pretty large trees I sawed down with it. Again no issues. It does everything I ask it to within reason without giving me issues and does it comfortably and quietly (relatively speaking) and is a very easy tractor to use being an agile tractor with excellent visibility. That's why I've given it a 5 star rating.

Pros

  • agility/very nimble
  • visibility
  • quiet
  • torquey
  • good weight compared to competition
  • good initial quality
  • very strong loader
  • seems to do a good job self-regenning

Cons

  • mpg's not great
  • hydraulic line in way of fel pin

Tractor is good, however, availability of advertised features is disappointing.

4/5

Bought the new MY18 5075e. One of the selling points to me was the MY18 upgrades touted by Justin Cherry in his August 2018 video. Specifically, the field installed 3rd function diverter kit was a necessity due to my uses for the tractor. However, since the purchase, I've come to realize that this kit is not available. Have been unable to order this kit from any JD dealer in the CONUS. Only a few have heard of it. Without this functionality, I cant use this tractor.

Pros

  • tractor cost and value is good

Cons

  • advertised features are unavailable

Good warm weather tractor

4/5

I purchased the 5075E 2WD in January 2016. I use it for bush hogging light to medium grass and brush, plowing, discing, and dragging logs. Its a great tractor during warm weather. However, it will absolutely will not crank once the temp's go much below 50°F. It has a manifold heater which is worthless. I have not tried a block heater, but plan to purchase one this fall so I dont have to wait till the middle of the day when the temps here in Carolina typically warm up to at least 50F so I can get it to crank. I've put about 180 hours on it so far without issue other than the failure to crank in cold temps.

Pretty good tractor, but had some issues

4/5

I use the tractor for mainly bush hogging, moving branches and dirt, and snow blowing. I've had it for 4 years with 300 hours on it. The 4x4 connector for the 4x4 light (cheaply made underneath) kept coming disconnected and I fixed it. There is a coolant leak that it has had since it was new. I just keep adding coolant as it is a small leak. (I rarely see it on the ground) Vibrates some going down hills, I think mostly because of the ag tires. I've had to replace a hydraulic connector on the back and have another that does not work that I will need to replace. (I hardly ever use them so I'm not sure what the issue is other than non use. Tried to free it up by soaking it, but it doesn't work so I had to buy a new one and now a 2nd one) It starts up nice in the cold. I have a block heater but never need to use it with the glow plugs. Overall I am happy with it but wish the above mentioned items were better.

Pros

  • plenty of power
  • nice cab
  • stong hydros

Cons

  • vibrates
  • hydro couplers cheap

Good overall tractor

4/5

I own a 100 acre farm and use this tractor for multiple different things. I farm 60 acres of alfalfa and it has plenty of power to run my pull behind swather and my small square baler. The multiple different speeds come in handy in different parts of the field. Really comfortable on the inside after long hours in the seat. I also use the loader attachment frequently for plowing snow and different projects in the summer, it works well. The visibility is fairly low on the loader and it takes some getting used to. The best feature is the power-reverser, there is no need to use the clutch all the time which really helps with fatigue. The tractor has plenty of power to plow snow with. Overall I think this is a well made tractor, but I only have 350 hours on it. It appears the 5075e gets mixed reviews and a few people have had problems with them, but so far I have had zero issues. I enjoy using it and have worked it pretty hard in the field. I keep up on the maintenance and it runs great. This is a utility tractor and I use it for just that.

Pros

  • good power
  • power-reverser
  • good visibility

Cons

  • average fuel economy
  • throttle position
  • little noisy on the inside

Overall I'm happy with it.

4/5

Negatives: 1) I do feel it uses quite a bit of fuel, but then again it has double the horsepower of my old tractor. 2) I feel the dash should have a P for Park light. Positives: 1) I use it for woods work and plowing my yard. In the woods, I get around remarkably easy. 2) I never had a cab before, so I think I'm in heaven when there's a cold temperature wind, or when it's raining or snowing and I have the heat or air on. Overall, I am not sorry I bought it. In fact, I would recommend it BUT I am not a farmer and have non-farming uses for it.

Pros

  • overall im happy

Cons

Not designed for hay use.

1/5

While baling hay, the radiator has to be constantly cleaned (every 10 minutes), or the tractor over heats. The engine RPM does not remain a constant speed, it continually slows down. At the end of the day it is pushed to 100% throttle, but tractor only makes 1750 RPM. Parking brake is poor also. This tractor works great for feeding hay, just not making it. The cab is nice and open and controls on the front end loader are easy to use.

Just average

3/5

Had a second suv installed for hydraulic work and when the tractor gets warmed up both SUVs operate at the same time not independently of each other. Fuel tank way to small, use the horse power and you are out of fuel now. Three to four hours max when working the engine.

Pros

  • cheap price for a well built tractor

Cons

  • better be close to fuel

Good Basic Tractor so far

3/5

I have had my tractor for 4 yrs and just over 400 hours. I have had to have the starter replaced at the 250 hour mark and advised it was out of warranty. Sure think the started should have lasted more than two years. I have developed a hydraulic leak at the high/low shifter base. It shows to have been sealed with a sealeant instead of a gasket on the parts listing. Not sure how long this has been leaking but I noticed it during an extensive rotary cutting session. I have added a gallon of fluid and mowed another 100 hrs. All the farmers I have spoken with advise me to just monitor and add fluid as needed. This just does not seem right for a tractor with as few hours as mine.

Durable and reliable

5/5

We use this mower with the HX10 Cutter to mow grasslands along the river bottoms and levees. This tractor/mower combination is perfect for our needs in this environment. The tractor has more than sufficient power to run the accessories in the cab, such as the air conditioning and lights, plus the HX10 cutter. The tractor maneuvers easily over rough terrain and slight slopes. We are highly satisfied with this purchase.

Easy to use...Nice looking tractor

4/5

I have 50 hours on my 5075E at the time of this review, so I am not very far into my ownership. It is very operator friendly and I enjoy using it. The control locations are very accommodating to the operator. It is a very nice looking tractor as well. I have always wanted to own a John Deere, just like my grandfather & great grandfather did. I have only had one problem so far, a coolant leak due to a loose hose clamp. After I found it, I tightened it up and that stopped the leak but I was worried about others clamps being loose, so I check them all. I found no others loose. I called the dealership before I put a wrench on anything, to make them aware of this coolant leak problem. They were more than willing to come get the tractor and find/repair the leak but wanted to charge me a hauling fee ($200-$250). I was not happy about this, due to the fact I only had 50 hours on this tractor. After much discussion, they gave me a list of checks to make and permission to repair any of these possibilities. I have owned several new tractors before and things like this are not uncommon. Overall very happy with tractor.

Pros

  • strong tractor

Easy to use... poor brakes

3/5

Excellent cab and vibration control. Quiet & comfortable. Easy to install sprayer controls, GPS & planter controls with DC plug-ins Excellent dealer support and JD support. Numerous coolant, oil and fuel leaks. Very poor brakes until low-viscosity oil put in transmission... must pump brakes to stop under load with the low-viscosity oil. Numerous small faults... easily corrected but annoying. Sheds parts... have to tighten up bolts, connectors regularly. NOT up to the standard set by my other John Deere products.(most of our tractors) NOT WORTH the premium I paid to buy John Deere.

Pros

  • quiet
  • ease of use

Cons

  • poor brakes
