To enhance operator comfort, John Deere added an all-new cab that has an automotive-inspired interior in which the operator has wide-open access to controls
Customers can choose from three Comfort and Convenience cab packages including Select, Premium and Ultimate.
The Ultimate cab includes an exclusive new leather seat with electronic adjustment, heating, ventilation and massage features, smartphone integration with a 6.5-inch touchscreen display and multi-speaker system.
Three visibility packages are offered - a smooth-shifting e23 PowerShift transmission is standard and can handle sudden, high-torque power loads while maintaining responsive, quick and smooth shifts.
