John Deere 45- to 75-hp 5000 TEN Series Tractors
So many
John Deere 5000 TEN Series Tractors help you
make the most of your chores, your fuel, and
your implements.
Match your PTO to your work. Optional
with the Sync Shuttle™ transmission, a shiftaf
540/540E PTO (shown lower right) lets you
choose between the standard speed for regi
and heavy-duty PTO work and the economy
setting for light PTO equipment. This added
versatility means you'll work at top efficiency
no matter what task you're tackling.
Reduce your engine speed and save fuel.
Set the 540/540E PTO on the economy setting
when powering light implements, like small rotary
cutters and sickle-bar mowers. Your PTO will still
be turning at the proper 540 rpm, but you'll be
running the engine at a lower speed, using less
fuel, and saving money.

Work quieter. You'll also keep the noise
level down with the 540 E economy setting.
That's because throttling back to a lower engine
rpm level lets the engine run noticeably quieter.
