John Deere announces new equipment name and numbering system

Agriculture.com Staff 08/08/2008 @ 2:30pm

John Deere is transitioning to a new name and number system for its full line of tractors with the introduction of the new 5D, 5E, 5M, and 6D Series tractors.

"The updated name and numbering system is unique to John Deere and allows for a more consistent approach to naming our equipment around the world," says Steve Robisky, John Deere marketing administration manager. "This new system allows customers to more quickly and easily identify the engine horsepower of a tractor, its capability, and its size by looking at the hood decal," Robisky adds.

Each new tractor model number has six available positions. The first position is a number and represents its size. The second, third, and fourth positions are numbers and denote its relative metric engine horsepower according to 97/68/EC Standards. The fifth position is a letter and indicates its capability and/or price level within its family.

This new system will eliminate the word thousand in the series title. The name and numbering switch will not be immediate for all John Deere tractors. It will be phased in over time when new product families are introduced.
