The 5G Final Tier 4 (FT4) Specialty Series now brings a narrow and ultra-narrow width to specialty applications.
The 5GV Series is built to operate in vineyards with a minimum working width of 108.8 cm (42.8 in.) from rear tire to rear tire. The 5GV Series cab, with an overall width of 108.1 cm (42.6 in.), is designed to pass between narrow vineyard rows. The 5GN features an extra-wide cab of 127.5 cm (50.2 in.).
The two-door cab on both 5G models offers the operator yet another convenience of entering and exiting from either side. With a distance of 560 mm (22.1 in.) between the right- and left-hand side consoles and a play of 285 mm (11.2 in.) between seat and steering wheel, the 5G Series provides one of the roomiest cabs in the specialty tractor market.

The 5G Series brings additional choices for transmission options. In addition to a 24 forward / 12 reverse (24F/12R) PowrReverser™ transmission option, the 5G Series offers the 12F/12R SynchReverser™ transmission for operators looking for a mechanical reverser.
The 24F/12R transmission provides 24 forward speeds and 12 reverse speeds for transport speeds of up to 40 km/h (24.9 mph). The transmission provides convenient high/low and declutch push-button controls. The high/low feature benefits operators who frequently transport their tractors from field to field or find themselves in bog-down situations during rear power take-off (PTO) work.
Users can push the rabbit button (high) without having to depress the clutch to get an increase in speed. They can also push the turtle button (low) to get a decrease in speed, similar to downshifting or engine braking without having to grab another gear. The PowrReverser transmission has a built-in engagement override valve for additional safety. This valve requires the clutch pedal to be depressed one time after each engine start before the transmission will begin to operate normally, giving the operator another opportunity to put all focus on the tractor. A neutral start switch requires the PowrReverser lever to be in the neutral position to start the engine.
On the 12F/12R, 12 forward and 12 reverse speeds are achieved by using two platform-mounted levers for shift operation. The transmission offers three-range transmission with four speeds in each range. Operators can easily switch directions without having to completely stop the tractor with synchronized, in-line, shuttle-shift capability between forward and reverse gears on the gear shift lever in all three ranges (A, B, and C ranges). A neutral start switch requires the gear-shift lever be in the neutral or park positions to start the engine.

The John Deere 5G Series provides an outstanding total hydraulic system flow of 126.7 L per minute (33.2 gal. per minute) with an optional third hydraulic pump.
This hydraulic system ensures excellent hydraulic performance and capacity:
|Steering and transmission||7.9 gal./min (29.9 L/min)|
|Second pump - SCV and hitch||17.6 gal./min (66.6 L/min)|
|Third pump - rockshaft||7.9 gal./min (29.9 L/min)|
|Total hydraulic flow||33.4 gal./min (126.4 L/min)|
Regular service and maintenance are essential to the performance, productivity, and longevity of the tractor.
All items in the daily service schedule can be performed without the use of tools:
NOTE: Always refer to the operator’s manual for complete maintenance and service recommendations.
The 5GN models have an optional auxiliary fuel tank available, which increases the fuel tank capacity by up to 38% on the 5075GN and up to 33% on the 5090GN and 5100GN.
The increased capacity allows for more productive time in the field with fewer stops for refueling.
|Machine||Code||Fuel tank capacity||Code||Auxiliary tank capacity|
|5075GN||Base||86 L (22.7 gal.)||8313||28.4 L (7.5 gal.)|
|5090GN||Base||73 L (19.3 gal.)||8313||28.4 L (7.5 gal.)|
|5100GN||Base||73 L (19.3 gal.)||8313||28.4 L (7.5 gal.)|
The 5G Series Tractors are heavy-duty utility tractors in two narrow chassis widths. Heavier gross vehicle weight means more down force to keep implements in the ground. Heavier equipment also leads to improved traction and performance in the field. The 5G Series Tractors have the weight to power through tough jobs.

Supporting the narrow dimensions of the 5GV Series
The narrow width of the 5GV Series requires a compact engine solution. The compact 3.4 L (0.9 gal.) engine supports the envelope of the 5GV Series entering super narrow vineyards as well as the turning radius at the end of a row.
Performance - made to measure
The engine ensures high productivity under tough working conditions. With a torque of 295.7 lb-ft for the 100 hp model, the engine ensures the optimal performance for versatile operations.
John Deere value:
Performance: the powerful FT 4 engines support the narrow machine envelope of the 5G Specialty Series and offer a high torque at rated rpm, which provides a high performance.
The heavy-duty 3-point hitch design on the 5G Series provides a standard maximum lift of 2590 kg (5,710 lb) at the ball ends. An optional additional lift cylinder is available for the 5GN Series, which increases the maximum lift capacity by 510 kg (1,124 lb) to 3100 kg (6,834 lb) (3100 kg) at the ball ends.
Hooking up implements is quick and simple with the standard Category 2 3-point hitch on the 5GN. Hooking up implements that require Category 1 or Category 1N is also possible and requires very little time with the 5GV.
