Only eight months ago at Agritechnica, John Deere unveiled a new 7R series range topper, the 330hp 7R 330 model. This model now loses its flagship title, as a new 350hp 7R 350 has been added to the line-up which now consists of six models.
Naturally, the 7R 350 benefits from the latest Gen2 updates, which include the new and larger cab and CommandPro joystick option previewed last November.
The new model has a rated power output of 350hp and a maximum power output of 388hp with intelligent power management.
With a minimum shipping weight of 11.4t, the 7R 350 offers a power-to-weight ratio of 29kg/hp.
Warranty has been extended to two years or 2,000 hours, similar to the larger 8R and 9R machines
Among the new features on the new 7R series is the Autopowr transmission fitted as standard, with the CommandPro joystick offered as an option.
Models fitted with the 40km/h transmission and front-axle brakes see an increased payload of 2t, matching the maximum permissible weight of 18t.
More tyre options are available, with sizes up to IF650/60R34 compatible on the front and up to IF900/60R42 compatible on the rear.
Warranty has been extended to two years or 2,000 hours, similar to the larger 8R and 9R machines.
The enhanced Active Command Steering 2 is new to the series. This system uses a gyroscope to sense any tractor yaw and automatically compensates drift to stay perfectly on course.
More adjustments can be made by the operator through the CommandCentre; these include steering sensitivity and steering wheel resistance.
