IT was all smiles at the Hutcheon and Pearce site at the Henty Machinery Field Days, with plenty on display for young and old.
While the younger crowd could see George the Farmer in action, farmers in the market for a new tractor could check out the exclusive John Deere Enforcer range.
Hutcheon & Pearce group sales manager Andrew Sands said the 6195M Enforcer was a long awaited all-rounder, exclusive to Hutcheon and Pearce.
“This is the first opportunity to get up close and see first-hand just how impressive these new machines are,’’ Mr Sands said.
“The 6195M Enforcer is a 195 horsepower tractor, with a 20 speed CommandQuad Plus transmission, which is new for this model.
“It has a stage two engine, which is a simple and proven John Deere engine with 114 litres per minute hydraulic capacity.
“It has triple link front suspension and mechanical cab suspension.”
Mr Sands said the 6195M came with the option of a John Deere 683 self-levelling three-function loader and heavy duty 2450mm loader bucket.
“This makes it an all round package,” he said.
Mr Sands said the Enforcer series was AutoTrac compatible.
“It’s ready for our John Deere guidance system, plug and play,” he said.
Also on display was the American built John Deere 7210R Enforcer.
Mr Sands said the model had high suitability for those on control traffic systems.
“It has the rear bar axle, so this machine can be put onto whichever wheel spacing the farmer prefers,” he said.
“It’s a really good fit for anyone on 12m control traffic farming system, it allows you to be at 3m spacings.”
Mr Sands said the 7210R Enforcer is fitted with a John Deere E23 transmission.
“It’s a real industry leading transmission from an efficiency and productivity perspective,” he said.
Mr Sands said the hydraulic cab suspension in the 7210R would increase comfort in the field, while the triple link suspension would ensure power to the ground.
The 7210R comes ready for GreenStar GPS as well as JD-Link and remote diagnostics.
“We can monitor and assist our customers with data management,” said Mr Sands.
“Also, we can log into the machine and help customers when it comes to problem solving.”
The 7210R Enforcer also comes with the option of a quick detach H480 loader, he said.
For small to medium size farms the long awaited 5100R Enforcer was also on display for the first time.
“This machine has been in the planning for many years,” said Mr Sands.
“It is fitted with the new 32 speed Command 8 transmission, which is a self adjusting transmission.
“It selects the gear based on the ground speed you want to travel at, similar to bigger tractors.”
Mr Sands said having this feature would lead to a productivity boost for smaller farmers and intensive horticulture operations.
“From a fatigue perspective, having a maintained ground speed and not having to worry about going up gears is a real plus,” he said.
Mr Sands said the model was also based on customer feedback that with operators moving between different machines consistency of drive style between ranges was important.
