8RT Series Track Tractors
Is it ironic that
SMART is spelled
with an RT?
The 8RT Series Track Tractors are not just a tracked
version of a row-crop tractor – they have an
impressive number of smart features that sets them
apart. Like hitch-lift capacity of up to 20,000
pounds (9702 kg), and up to 60 gpm (227 L/min)
hydraulic capacity. A massive undercarriage and the
longest wheelbase of any tractor in its class. The
exclusive AirCushion™ Suspension System. And the
new JDLink™ information-management system plus
integrated GreenStar™ guidance. Now that’s smart.

The 8R/8RT Series meets the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency’s Interim Tier 4 Emissions
Regulations by utilizing cooled exhaust gas
recirculation for controlling oxides of nitrogen and a
smart exhaust filter for reducing particulate matter.
The filter automatically cleans itself during normal
machine operation for hassle-free and worry-free
emissions compliance.

Engine and Transmissions
Smart power and performance
The John Deere PowerTech™ PSX 9.0 L Engine delivers
uncompromised performance, up to 360 engine hp, and over
400 engine hp through Intelligent Power Management.
That’s the most horsepower we’ve put in a row-crop tractor.
And it’s all possible thanks to an incredibly smart Engine
Control Unit, which senses engine speed and load changes at
a rate of 100 times per second. This highly evolved and
patented system allows the engine to instantly adjust fuel
quantity and injection timing, air-to-fuel ratio, multiple fuel
injections, and amount of cooled exhaust gas recirculation
for outstanding fuel economy and improved engine
responsiveness. A fixed turbocharger and a variable geometry
turbocharger broaden the engine’s operating range with
higher power density and increased low-speed torque.
The John Deere
PowerTech PSX 9.0 L
Engine uses air-to-air
aspiration, two
turbochargers in a series,
a four-valve-per-cylinder
design, plus a highpressure common-rail
fuel system to deliver
outstanding engine
responsiveness, torque
rise, fuel economy, and
durability.
Transmission choices for powerful versatility
Choose between two field-proven transmissions: the
16-speed automatic PowerShift or the John Deere
Infinitely Variable Transmission (IVT™). PowerShift delivers
the strength to handle sudden, high-torque loads while
maintaining responsive, application-based shifts. For the
ultimate in convenience and productivity, opt up to the IVT.
Simply select your operating speed, choose from one of
three operating modes, and the IVT automatically maintains
the engine speed – even under changing load conditions.
You’ll love the convenience of the IVT
AutoMode. Constant communication
between the IVT and engine allows the
tractor to automatically change
transmission-operating modes,
leaving you free to handle other
duties. Your tractor also can anticipate
a heavy draft load and will
automatically adjust the engine and
transmission accordingly to help save
fuel and improve productivity.

The ergonomic design of the CommandARM Console puts virtually all
tractor controls right at your fingertips. The entire CommandARM
moves with your seat, which swivels to the right for a more comfortable
view out the back window. In addition, the entire CommandARM can be
raised, lowered, and moved forward and back so you can comfortably
rest your arm on it.
12
Controls and Displays
Smart technology
What makes the 8R/8RT Series the most intelligent
tractors in the world isn’t just their advanced
technology, but how we made the technology intuitive
and easy to use, regardless of operator skill level.
n CommandARM™ Console and GS3 CommandCenter™
Display. The CommandARM features a simple set of
soft-keys arranged with the most frequently used keys
up front, while cab-environment controls are at the
back. The console contains gear and throttle levers;
controls for the hitch, PTO, and SCVs; and switches
to activate iTEC™ sequences and to resume AutoTrac™
hands-free steering. The GS3 CommandCenter is
available in a standard and touch-screen version. Both
let you easily program and monitor almost every tractor
function – even in multiple languages.
n GreenStar™ Guidance. Whether you choose to be
hands-on with Parallel Tracking™ or hands-free with
AutoTrac and RTK accuracy, one thing is certain –
GreenStar precision improves your productivity,
efficiency, and profitability. All models with MFWD are
AutoTrac-ready. Displays, receivers, and activations
can be factory-installed, making it easier than ever to
integrate GreenStar solutions into your operation.
n JDLink™ Information-Management System.
Once you activate your one year of free JDLink Ultimate
service, your 8R/8RT Series Tractor will send you
regular updates via the web and your cell phone with
information on how and where it’s operating so you can
better manage your operation, your machines, and your
costs. See page 27 for more information.
The GS3 CommandCenter Display (left) comes loaded with select GreenStar 3 software applications such as
AutoTrac and Section Control (apps require activation fee). You also can run other apps such as SeedStar™ XP,
SpreadStar,™ and AccuDepth.™ What’s more, it doubles as a universal performance monitor and is ISOBUS
compatible – hook up a compatible implement and its controls automatically load onto the display. Go with
the optional touch-screen version and get video-streaming capabilities when you attach a remote camera to
your planter, grain cart, or other implements. The new GS3 2630 Display (right) gives you even more guidance
options with applications such as iGuide and iSteer, plus prescription mapping and documentation.

The 31-mph (50 km/h) option lets you move at faster speeds to
haul more throughout the day. It’s available on wheel tractors
equipped with an Infinitely Variable Transmission (IVT™). These
tractors also require Independent Link Suspension (ILS™) with
integrated brakes, trailer brakes (air or hydraulic), front fenders,
a 4.72-in. (120 mm) rear axle, and B-speed rated front and rear
tires. Track tractors can reach speeds of 26 mph (42 km/h) when
equipped with an IVT.
14
ActiveCommand Steering (ACS™)
Smart down the line
As your farm grows, so does your time on the road. Our
exclusive ActiveCommand Steering (ACS™) system makes
your transport time more comfortable by using variableratio and variable-effort steering to adjust the amount
of effort required to turn the steering wheel, and the
number of steering wheel rotations, based on your
speed. It also uses dynamic road-wheel offset control to
help prevent oversteering and to provide unprecedented
line-holding ability. ACS is optional equipment on wheel
models only.
n Dynamic road-wheel offset control uses a gyroscope
to sense the tractor’s movement and automatically
makes small steering adjustments. You’ll keep the
tractor straight in your lane with minimal effort – even at
transport speeds of 31 mph (50 km/h).
During headland turns, ACS reduces the amount of torque in the steering wheel, making it
easier for you to turn the wheel. It also reduces the number of times you must rotate the
wheel for enhanced comfort.
n Variable-ratio steering changes the number of
steering-wheel rotations required to turn the tractor
based on speed. You’ll make fewer turns of the steering
wheel at slower speeds for enhanced comfort.
n Variable-effort steering changes the amount of
torque you experience when turning the steering wheel.
You’ll sense less torque in the steering wheel at slow
speeds, and more torque during transport speeds for an
enhanced sense of control.
As your speed increases during transport, you’ll experience more torque in the steering
wheel for an enhanced sense of control. Slow down to make a turn and the steering
wheel automatically becomes easier to rotate. And when driving straight down your lane,
you’ll keep the tractor centered with minimal effort.

Choose from a large selection of tires in
singles, doubles, and triples to fit your needs.
Front tires are available in widths ranging
from 11.4 in. (290 mm) to 24.4 in. (620 mm);
rear tires in widths from 12.6 in. (320 mm) to
31.5 in. (800 mm).
16
Suspension Systems, Axles, Tires
ILS gives you 10 inches
(25.4 cm) of suspension travel
to keep front duals in contact
with the ground, which means
you can work at faster
speeds for improved
productivity and
enhanced comfort.
Smart power to the ground
8R Series Tractors can be equipped with front
Independent Link Suspension (ILS™) while the 8RT
Series Track Tractors feature the revolutionary
AirCushion™ Suspension System. Both suspension
systems provide a super-smooth ride and maintain
faster field and transport speeds. Their unsurpassed
traction and flotation help put more power to the
ground, plus more comfort in the cab.
n Axle Choices. 8R Series Tractors come with your
choice of a mechanical front-wheel-drive (MFWD) axle
or ILS. Go with the MFWD option and choose between
the 1300 and 1500 Series Axles. Both have electrohydraulic automatic engagement and give you the
drawbar pulling power you need in all operating
conditions. The 1500 Series MFWD option lets you add
duals to your front axle for added load-carrying
capacity, traction, and flotation.
8R Series Tractors can be
equipped with the exclusive
John Deere ActiveSeat,™ which
isolates you from up to 90
percent of vertical movements
for an even smoother ride.
(ActiveSeat not available on
track tractors.)

AirCushion™ Suspension System
The revolutionary AirCushion
Suspension System is the ultimate
in track-tractor suspension
technology. You’ll
appreciate the enhanced
comfort when working
rough ground, plus
you’ll like the faster
field and transport
speeds.
n A massive pivot
pin (1) provides
support and allows
the swing arm (2) and
walking beam (3) to pivot
individually.
n The heavy-duty air bag (4) and shock absorber (5) allow the
swing arm and walking beam to float up and down. Air bag
pressure is automatically adjusted to keep the swing arm
centered for maximum suspension travel.

n A nitrogen accumulator (6) and a larger tensioning cylinder
(7) increase track-belt tension to 32,000 pounds (14 515 kg) – a
45-percent improvement over the 8030T Series. That increase
in belt tension helps prevent track slippage.
n The walking beam oscillates up to 5 degrees in both
directions, allowing the tracks to comfortably hug ground
contours for improved performance. Suspension travel at the
front idler wheel varies based on track-tread spacing.
The AirCushion Suspension System on track tractors allows 9.6 inches
(24.4 cm) of vertical suspension travel at the front idlers when tracks are
set at a 72-inch (1.8 m) tread spacing, and up to 15.3 inches (38.9 cm)
when set at the 120-inch (3 m) tread spacing. Add the optional extension
kit, space the tracks out to 160 inches (4 m), and the suspension travel
increases to 20.4 inches (51.8 cm).

Set your track treads where you want them – spacing points are
positioned in 4-inch (10.2 cm) increments across the walking beam so
you can space them from 72- to 120-inches (1.8 to 3 m) wide. And if
120 inches isn’t wide enough, go with the optional 112 to 160-inch
(4 m) field-installed kit. This design eliminates the need for separate
tractor frames to accommodate narrow or wide settings.

Loader, Front Hitch and PTO Versatility
Smart versatility
n New integrated front hitch and PTO make the 8R
Series an impressive performer in front-implement
applications. The integrated and compact style
maintains full maneuverability even with large front
tires. Standard lift capacity is 11,464 pounds (5200 kg).
n New H480 Loader. Connect the new H480 Loader to
your 8R Series Tractor and turn your tractor into the
ultimate versatility machine. Load silage. Move round
bales. Clean your feedlots. And more. The H480 is built
with the added strength befitting the largest loader in
our ag lineup, with mounting frames that are integrated
into the tractor frame for a durable connection between
the loader and the tractor. Oil lines are routed through
the boom arms to protect them from damage. And a
mechanical self-leveling linkage helps ensure the load
remains at the same angle to the ground.

Implement Versatility and Compatibility
Smart capacity
n Hydraulics and SCVs. The heavy-duty hydraulic system
boasts plenty of reserve capacity to operate large hydraulic
motors, even at reduced engine speeds. Closed-center
pressure and flow-compensated hydraulics are standard
equipment and are used for all steering, brake, hitch, and
SCV functions. You can choose three to six SCVs at the rear
of the tractor to meet your needs. Simple hydraulic control
lets you easily adjust flow and time detents for each
hydraulic coupler right from the CommandARM™ Console.
n Rear Hitch and Drawbar. The optional Category 4N/3
hitch on wheel models has a lift capacity of 18,700 pounds
(8482 kg). Track models feature an impressive 20,000-pound
(9702 kg) hitch-lift capacity. An optional Category 4 drawbar
and 2-inch (50.8 mm) hitch pin with heavy-duty drawbar
support and 11,000-pound (4990 kg) tongue-weight
capacity provides added load-bearing strength to handle
large-capacity and extra-wide implements.
n PTO. Use the rear PTO to power everything from your
potato diggers, beet or forage harvesters, and more. A fully
independent 1 3/4-inch (4.4 cm) 1,000-rpm PTO is standard
equipment. The 20-spline shaft is built to handle highpower, heavy PTO loads that require full horsepower. PTO
engagements are automatically modulated for smooth starts
to help protect your implement from high-torque overloads.

Smart at all hours of the day and night
The integrated technology of the 8R/8RT Series helps keep you productive as your day turns into night.
Field Cruise™ maintains a constant engine and ground speed as the load on the tractor varies, which is
especially useful when you put in long hours on critical operations, such as planting. It also helps save fuel
by keeping the speed at a lower level. And intelligent Total Equipment Control (iTEC) lets you program, save
and edit two headland sequences for up to five implements. Each sequence can learn up to 20 tractor
functions, so you can effortlessly conduct multiple functions all at once.
The Premium Lighting Package uses high-intensity discharge (HID) lamps to illuminate your fields a
complete 360 degrees. Five additional Xenon lights deliver excellent brightness for improved visibility.

A new name.
A familiar face.
Introducing John Deere Financial: The logical choice for financing.
Even though our name is new, the way we live up to it isn’t. The same things you’ve
always counted on for your equipment financing needs are still here. And even
though our name is changing, you can still count on some things that will never
change — our commitment, service, support and philosophy of knowing you, as you.
That’s the John Deere Financial difference.
