Test-driving the new John Deere 8R Models


Farmers Guide was among the first agricultural press to test-drive the new John Deere 8R models in Waterloo, Iowa, USA earlier this year. The machines were previewed ahead of their Agritechnica launch.

New 8R models include the 8R wheeled models, 8RT twin-track crawlers, plus the 8RX – with four track units, and designed specifically for the application.

Power in the new 8R line-up is up to 458 max hp from the 8410RX.

You can read machinery editor David Williams’ full report in our December issue, dispatching on 18th November.


Until then, watch our test-drive video of the John Deere 8R, 8RT and 8RX models here :
