John Deere launches 4M Heavy-Duty Compact Utility Tractor

John Deere, a provider of advanced products and services for customers whose work is linked to the land, has launched the new John Deere 4M Heavy-Duty Tractor. Designed with commercial customers and large property owners in mind, the new 4M Heavy-Duty delivers all the performance customers demand from their utility tractor in a compact, easy to use package.

The new 4M Heavy Duty is available in two output ratings, the 52 horsepower (37.9 kW) 4052M HD and the 66 horsepower (48.5 kW) 4066M HD. Both units feature John Deere’s innovative three range eHydro™ transmission with Twin Touch™ pedals, allowing for easy direction changes and increased productivity while decreasing operator fatigue. The eHydro transmission also includes eThrottle™, LoadMatch™, MotionMatch™ and SpeedMatch™ systems along with automotive style cruise control.

In order to make this one of the most versatile tractors available today, John Deere equipped the 4M Heavy-Duty with a category I/II hitch with telescoping draft links. Customers can use one tractor across a broad range of implements with various hitch specifications. Thanks to the telescoping draft links, implement hook up is a simple task. Operators will be able to spend more time completing the task at hand versus struggling to attach their implements. Factory installed hydraulics also allow operators the ability to connect and use multiple hydraulic controlled implements simultaneously. 

Perfect for working in small spaces and low-light conditions, like barns, stalls and poultry houses, the 4M Heavy-Duty features an innovative lighting design and a short wheel base. With the tractor’s unique fore and aft work lights, visibility is significantly improved in low-light environments. Additionally, its compact 73-inch (185.4 cm) wheel base allows for a much tighter turning radius while operating in small spaces.

“The 4M Heavy-Duty tractor was designed with versatility and ease of use in mind. With this unit we had three main objectives – increase visibility, provide industry leading maneuverability and reduce downtime related to changing attachments,” said DeMark Cole, product marketing manager, John Deere. “With this tractor, we’ve  achieved all of these objectives and we look forward to getting our customers in the seats.”

The new 4M Heavy-Duty is backed by a full machine standard two-year warranty, which promises to fix any defects in materials and workmanship for two years after delivery, or 2,000 hours. Additionally, the 4M HD’s powertrain is covered by a six-year, 2,000-hour warranty.
