Deere adds two-wheel drive model to 5E range

John Deere recently added a new two-wheel drive model to its 5E range of utility tractors.

The cabless 5055E is the smallest in the 5E series and the only model offered in two-wheel drive.

Powering the 5055E is a 55 horse-power, Tier III turbo-charged intercooled three-cylinder John Deere PowerTech M engine.

This is matched to a basic spec synchromesh transmission with 9F/3R gears.

Brakes are hydraulically actuated wet disk brakes.

Three-point linkage lift capacity is 1.8t at the link ends.

Front loader options include a choice of two mechanical self-levelling or non self-levelling loaders, with lift capacities of either 873kg or 989kg to a maximum lift height of 3.38m.


This non-cab model features a fold-away, roll-over frame to allow entry into low buildings.

Goodyear tyres are fitted all-round, 6.0 x 16 on the front and 14.9 x 28 on the rear.

Basic list price of the new John Deere 5055E 2WD tractor is €15,535 + VAT.
