John Deere John Deere 9520R Tractor HydraCushion™ suspension features industry-leading technology 

John Deere John Deere 9520R Tractor HydraCushion(TM) suspension

Compatibility: 

The John Deere 9520R Tractor HydraCushion suspension is not compatible with any 9RX configurations.
 
The HydraCushion suspension is not compatible with single reduction axle machines and is available on the following 9R Models.

John Deere HydraCushion suspension has two systems:

  • A hydraulic system

  • An electrical system

Hydraulic system

The hydraulic system consists of suspension cylinders, a control valve manifold, suspension lock-out, and hydraulic accumulators.

  • Accumulators dampen energy from bumps to produce a smooth ride for maximum operator comfort.

Electrical system

The electrical system contains position sensors, solenoids for the control valves, and a master controller for complete automatic control of the HydraCushion system.

How does it work?

The mechanical, hydraulic and electrical systems work together to maintain a level and vertically centered position of the front differential case in relation to the tractors chassis, independent of tractor weight or dynamic loading. The system's ability to maintain a vertically centered position provides full suspension travel of 10.16 cm (4.0 in.). This translates to consistent soil contact for improved power to the ground as well as dampens the energy from bumps that cause a rough ride.

The tractor utilizes electronic and computer controls that monitor tractor functions and axle position. Based on those inputs, the electrical system automatically triggers hydraulic functions to raise, lower, or remain static.

The front axle has been specifically designed to accommodate additional options, such as a front blade or saddle tanks.

Braking system

The braking system is applied proportionally between the front and rear axle brakes to effectively stop the tractor. There are no operator adjustments or requirements to operate the additional braking system.

Tire compatibility

The HydraCushion suspension system is contained within the width of the tractors frame so it does not affect any tire or ballast configurations.

John Deere 9520R Tractor Transmission e18™ with Efficiency Manager™ 

John Deere 9520R Tractor Transmission e18(TM) with Efficiency Manager(TM)

What is it?

Efficiency Manager allows for IVT™-like operation on the 18-speed PowerShift transmission. With Efficiency Manager engaged, the operator no longer has to manage the engine revolutions per minutes (rpm) and gear selection for the most efficient level of operation possible. Efficiency Manager does that automatically by shifting up and throttling back depending on the load on the tractor.
 
How does it work?
With the tractor sitting still, in neutral, or once the tractor is in motion, the operator simply pushes either the F1 or F2 switch on the CommandARM™ to activate the feature. Once Efficiency Manager is activated, the operator can set and adjust the desired ground speed by using the thumbwheel on the shift lever. An icon and the desired ground speed will appear on the corner post display once Efficiency Manager is activated.
 
The operator can program two ground speeds by pushing either the F1 or F2 switch. The F1 setting will typically be set for field work while the F2 setting will be used for field/road transport. F1 can be set at any speed from 2 mph (3.2 km/h) to 12.6 (20.3 km/h) mph, and F2 can be set at any speed from 2 mph (3.2 km/h) to 25 mph (40 km/h).
 
Can it be managed by the operator?
By navigating through the CommandCenter™, the operator can adjust the rpm shift points while operating in custom mode. The operator can set it to automatic or custom. In automatic mode, the tractor will predict the optimum shift points under load to maintain the highest level of performance and operation. Custom mode allows the operator to adjust how high or low he/she would like the engine rpm to pull down before shifting under load. See the operator’s manual for more information.
 
Operation example:
If a customer is operating a 9R, equipped with the 18-speed PowerShift transmission, on a grain cart he/she could set F1 to the same speed as the combine for an unload, on the go scenario. Once the combine is empty and the 9R operator is ready to unload the grain from the cart onto the truck, he/she could push the F2 switch (already set at a higher transport speed) to get them to the truck quicker.
 
NOTE: Efficiency Manager is not recommended during for use during high draft load applications. We do not recommend the use of EM during the cut cycle in scraper applications. Efficiency Manager is recommended during the transport cycle of scraper applications

John Deere 9520R Tractor ActiveCommand Steering (ACS™) system provides a robust and full-encompassing steering system 

John Deere 9520R Tractor ActiveCommand Steering (ACS(TM)) system

Active Command Steering is a factory option on all 9R and 9RX Series Tractors. With ACS, John Deere has designed one of the most robust and full-encompassing steering system in the industry. Whether in the field or on the road, ACS reduces steering effort, which can result in reduced operator fatigue and can improve operator comfort and control.

There are four key features of the ACS system:

Dynamic road wheel offset control:

  • A gyroscope senses tractor yaw and can automatically make small steering adjustments to provide unprecedented line-holding abilities. Drive down a bumpy road and experience how ACS makes it easier to keep the tractor straight, even over rough terrain. ACS delivers the ultimate in comfort.

  • ACS works to prevent over-steering when a sudden obstacle causes the operator to make a quick steering reaction.

Variable ratio steering:

  • Approximately 3.5 turns lock-to-lock at in-field speeds for quick headland turns.

  • Approximately 5 turns lock-to-lock at transport speeds for improved line holding

Elimination of steering slope and hand wheel drift:

  • Steering wheel drift is eliminated with the ACS electronic control system.

Variable effort steering:

  • Steering wheel resistance automatically changes with ground speed to deliver light steering effort at slower speeds for less effort during headland turns, and higher steering wheel torque at transport speeds for better comfort and line holding.

*Only available in the 9R and 9RX Series Tractors

A fail operational system

The ACS system is fail operational, which means steering is still functional in the event of any single-point failure. John Deere has gone to great lengths to help ensure the operator has the ability to steer the tractor if something goes wrong in the steering system.
 
For example, if the primary controller fails, a second controller takes over. If power from the alternator fails, the battery resumes control. If the engine quits running and is unable to supply hydraulic oil to the system, an electric-driven backup pump is used to supply the oil.

The ACS system consists of several key components

  1. Gyroscope: this is used to measure the yaw rate (turn rate) of the tractor during transport speeds.

  2. Road-wheel angle sensors: these sensors simply measure the steer angle of the tractor.

  3. Power supply module: this module distributes the power of the battery and alternator throughout the ACS system.

  4. Hand-wheel angle sensors and tactile feedback unit: this includes the steering wheel position sensors and a brake which can increase or decrease resistance dependent on speed. Lighter feedback is desired during normal field use, and slightly heavier feedback is desired during transport and while the tractor is cornering at high speeds.

  5. Controllers: two controllers are located in the back of the tractor and are the brains of the system.

  6. Control values: also known as steering valves, control valves are used to steer the tractor.

  7. Electric-drive backup pump: this pump supplies oil to the steering system, brakes, and park (for towing) brake if there is no longer a sufficient oil supply to the steering and brakes.

Value of ACS

  • Fewer turns lock-to-lock: 3.5 turns lock-to-lock in the field for quicker headland turns and 5 turns lock-to-lock at transport speeds for improved line holding

  • Eliminates hand wheel backlash and drift

  • Reduces steering effort which can result in reduced operator fatigue

  • Smaller hand-wheel diameter for improved operator comfort and visibility

  • Maintains operator feel and touch-points of traditional steering column system

  • Fully integrates with AutoTrac™ guidance systems

  • Compatible with suspended and non-suspended front axle tractors

  • Compatible with wide and narrow section width tires
