John Deere 9R 490 Tractor
Power and precision for your toughest jobs
Your work windows are tight no matter the time of year. Whether tilling, planting, seeding, applying nutrients or transporting, starting earlier and running later may seem like the only solution. And the larger your operation, the faster those windows close.
The new 9 Series Tractors alleviate timing challenges, offering more power, more ballasting options, and more precision than ever before. No matter your terrain, no matter your conditions, these tractors give you the strength and power you need to pull heavier, wider implements with ease. And with integrated precision ag technology, you can manage your biggest fields in the tightest timeframes to achieve the bottom-line results youre after.
PowerTech 13.6L (827-cu in.) engine: real world usability, not just power on paper.
In redesigning the engine, we also gave it:
Hydraulic valve lash adjusters to maintain valve-lash settings during engine operation, reduce valve train noise and wear, and allow for greater fuel efficiency.
A hydraulic fan drive for improved cooling capacity with no required maintenance.
A new integrated wiring harness design featuring a modular layout for reduced vibration, greater reliability, and easier service and diagnostics.
A rear gear train that integrates fully into the cast-iron block, reducing tiresome engine noise and improving the durability of the crankshaft damper.
Combination sensors where possible, meaning fewer sensors, connectors, and wires.
A powerful engine brake that allows operators to use the engine to control tractor and implement speeds while transporting or traveling downhill, reducing wear on the drivetrain brake components.
9 Series Visibility packages let you run with confidence, dawn until dusk
Visibility is more than just lighting. Its mirrors where you need them, shades for the blinding late-fall and early-spring sun, wipers to help keep all the glass clear, and integrated camera capability.
The new 9 Series Tractors let you choose the visibility package that best suits your needs Select, Premium, or Ultimate with 360-degree light-emitting diode (LED) lighting so you and your operators can run with all-conditions confidence.
*Convenience lights illuminate the corners of the cab for easier entry and exit.
** Starting with model year 2022, the Ultimate visibility package will be camera ready.
Put more power to the ground, more comfortably, with the industry-exclusive HydraCushion suspension.
Power that doesnt get to the ground is power thats being wasted. And a bumpy, hoppy ride can quickly drain an operators energy and productivity. So to help you get the most from every horse under the hood and every hour in the cab, 9R Tractors in wheeled configurations are available with the advanced, industry-exclusive HydraCushion suspension (HydraCushion is standard equipment on 477-kW [640-hp] models).
Along with a proven-reliable suspension design, HydraCushion suspension uses an advanced system of electronic sensors and hydraulic components to keep the chassis and front differential vertically centered, giving you more consistent contact with the ground while reducing road lope and smoothing out the bumps that cause a rough, tiring ride.
In the field or on the road: adjust steering ratio on-the-go with ActiveCommand Steering (ACS).
You dont have to compromise between pinpoint turns in the field and smooth, easy steering during transport you can have it all with ActiveCommand Steering (ACS), available on all 9R and 9RX Tractors.
ACS lets you choose your steering ratio based on the task at hand. For precise headland maneuvers in the field, choose a tight 3.5 turns lock-to-lock. When youre done in the field, ACS gives you a full five turns for smoother line-holding during road transport. Variable-effort resistance automatically changes with ground speed; youll notice a lighter touch during low-speed, in-field turns, and increased feedback at transport speeds for more comfortable, confident steering over the road. Plus, ACS works seamlessly with AutoTrac guidance systems and is compatible with wide and narrow section width tires as well as wide and narrow belts on 9RX models.
The end result? Reduced overall steering effort and fatigue, no drift and no backlash through the hand-wheel, all with the connected feel of a traditional steering column system
