Versatility, power, and comfort.  Those are the three words that best describe the all-new 2011 7R Series Tractors.  The 7R Series redefines the row-crop tractor by offering 200 to 280 engine hp, two new engines, two new transmissions, plus the technologically advanced CommandView™ II Cab.

The 7R Series tractors can do much more than just row-crop applications.  Due to their improved stability and maneuverability, they are actually nimble enough to be used in livestock and dairy operations as well.  A shorter length from the cab to the front grille and a longer wheelbase allows for a new structural frame design that allows the tractor to be more versatile in its uses.  The largest two models have a hitch-lift capacity of up to 17,300 pounds, and a new integrated front hitch and PTO makes the 7R Series a more versatile performer in front-implement applications as well.

Five models are available in the 7R Series with 200 to 280 engine hp.  The 7200R and 7215R have the new John Deere PowerTech™ PSX 6.8L Engine, while the 7230R, 7260R and 7280R feature the new PowerTech PVX 9.0L Engine. Both engines meet Interim Tier 4 (IT4) emissions standards using cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) for controlling oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and a smart exhaust filter for reducing particulate matter (PM).

The 7R Series is built with the CommandView™ II Cab found on the 8R/8RT Series, providing a spacious and comfortable cabin.  One of the benefits of the CommandView™ II Cab is a new cab suspension option that automatically makes adjustments based on operator commands and terrain, giving the operator a much more comfortable ride.  Even steering in made more comfortable in the 7R Series due to the optional ActiveCommand Steering (ACS™) System.
