John Deere values in 2018
Engines. In the 60th anniversary, the company stands out with investments and new technologies in favor of Argentinian farmers. He began the year to celebrate a new stage: the production of 300,000 engines.
The models produced in Granadero Baigorria range from 2.9 liters (3 cil); 4.5 liters (4 μl); 6.8 and 9 liters (6 cylinders), covering a power of 44 hp. to 365 hp They are used in tractors, harvesters, construction equipment, as well as for electricity and irrigation. These engines meet the environmental emissions requirements demanded by customers in Brazil, which is a very important challenge the company has managed to overcome.
Products. John Deere introduced the new 5E Series tractors with an extra original cab, specifically designed to provide greater safety and comfort for all operations. The new 5082E, 5090E and 5090EH, now with a cabin, are ideal for livestock and spraying.
These new models offer improved visibility for front loaders as they have a roof hatch and a panoramic view. They have joystick and VCS tools to facilitate the connection and use of tools. With 5090EH – ideal for smoking tasks – the active carbon filter cabin provides greater operator protection for spraying tasks. The models that make up the series are also economical due to their low fuel consumption; and robust for its simplicity and resilience to all types of terrain.
In the year in which the company celebrates 60 years of continuous production in Argentina, it announced the nationalization of the 7J Series tractors, confirming its commitment to the industry and the Argentine province.
The 7J Series has been developed to ensure excellent performance in this area to meet the requirements of high-performance and efficient farming. This line of tractors, ideal for planting, is equipped with JDLink technology and an automatic pilot system that strives to meet the increasingly demanding needs of the Argentine manufacturer. The new tractor series consists of three 200, 215 and 230 hp models. Through the nationalization of the 7J series, John Deere covers the segment of 45 hp. up to 230 hp with equipment from the Argentine industry.
With regard to combine harvesters, the S-series of the national industry consumes 17% less fuel per hectare, allowing it to collect between 2 and 4 hectares per day, and its efficiency requires 55% less setup time.
In Argentina John Deere produces:
The engines are powered by 3, 4 and 6 cylinders, from 44 to 365 hp.
Series 5E. Models 5045D, 5045Е, 5065Е, 5075Е, 5076ЕФ, 5082Е, 5090Е.

Innovations. John Deere has launched the Operations Center, an innovative solution for managing data and making better decisions. It is an online platform that allows the manufacturer and contractor to view, analyze, archive and share agronomic information about the batch and equipment, providing data in a simple format for access from both a computer and mobile phones or tablets.
With remote access to the monitor, you may find the machine that works best in the field and reproduce its configuration to the rest of the equipment. Another important benefit is the ability to facilitate proactive support from dealer dealers, who can alert potential inconveniences and guide operators for a quick fix.
Innovation and productive efficiency. The Ultimaker 3 arrived in John Deere in February and allows simple pieces to be created whose geometric complexity will require multiple processing, time and resource optimization tools, devices and prototypes.
In 3D printing, the process by which a 3D file is converted into a physical object removes many limitations for both prototypes and final parts at the design stage. After the training that the engineering engineering team received and two weeks of testing, the printer prints almost 100% of the time, mainly prototypes.
Each slice made with a 3D printer includes time savings associated with management, ordering and delivery with a vendor. By means of three-dimensional printing, it is possible to have one piece of the day for the other, when the supplier will take about 10 days for production and delivery. In addition, the cost of printed materials is insignificant compared to the cost of producing the same part by traditional methods.
Part of John Deere's DNA is related to the rapid deployment of new technologies and innovations to create and maintain a competitive edge. The design and manufacture of new installation devices is one of the competence of the production department. Three-dimensional printing is a new technology that decides in a blunt way many of the complications associated with prototyping new devices.
Investments and new markets. John Deere signed the final agreement to acquire King Agro, a privately-owned company producing carbon fiber technology, based in Valencia, Spain, and its manufacturing plant in Campana, Argentina. This deal provides John Deere customers with the opportunity to continue to take advantage of Kingro's unique knowledge, design and expertise in carbon fiber technology.
John Deere also signed a final agreement to acquire PLA, a private company that manufactures sprayers, seeders and specialized agricultural products. PLA is located in Argentina with production facilities in Las Rosas, Argentina and Cano, Brazil. The acquisition of PLA strengthens John Deere's commitment to its customers as John Deere continues to provide equipment, technology and innovative and cost-effective services to improve its customers' performance.
