Stuck for a machine to draw a few bales this year? Well John Deere might just have the solution for you with its new 600hp 9RT Series tractor costing a cool €457,718.

John Deere’s new 9R/9RT Series wheeled and tracked tractors for 2015 feature more horsepower on all models and industry-leading hydraulic capacity.

Rated from 420 to 620hp, the new range includes five 9R articulated four-wheel drive models, the 9420R, 9470R, 9520R, 9570R and the 9620R, which is now the largest John Deere tractor ever built; and three tracked models, the 9470RT, 9520RT and 9570RT.

John Deere’s advanced PowerTech PSS 13.5-litre engine, plus the 15-litre Cummins QSX15 engine on the 9570R and 9620R, are all Final Tier 4/Stage IV compliant and deliver the reliable horsepower and torque required for increased machine performance. All the engines share a common technology approach to meet the latest near-zero emissions regulations, featuring exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and an exhaust after-treatment combination of a diesel particulate filter (DPF) and selective catalytic reduction (SCR).
