Fuel efficiency and productivity up with 8000 "30" Series tractors.

John Deere 8000 "30" Series (8030) tractors meet European Union Stage IIIA and North American Environmental Protection Agency Tier 3 engine emission regulations using a new 9.0-L PowerTech Plus[TM] engine. Five-wheel models and three-tracks models range from 225 to 330 engine HP. The tractors incorporate a new AutoPowr[TM] infinitely-variable transmission, reduced sound levels, convertible CAT IV NL / CAT III rear 3-pt hitch Quick Coupler, and a CAN-based Solid State Electrical Load Center. The 9.0-L engine uses externally cooled exhaust-gas recirculation along with a variable geometry turbocharger to improve fuel economy. Integrated tractor systems and their technologies have lead to overall tractor-factory-observed fuel-efficiency improvements of 2 to 5 percent based on model and option. These tractors bring a new level of productivity while maintaining maneuverability, visibility, and ease of operation.
