John Deere unveils updated line of tractorsJosh Castillo the product manager of 7R Tractors with John Deere shares that the new machinery will have up to a 290-horsepower engine.

"These will replace the current production 7Rs right now out on the market," says Castillo.

The new series of 7R Tractors will feature a powershift option and the cab has received various enhancements including a redesigned command arm with a 10 inch display monitor. The seat can also swivel a full 40-degrees to the right allowing operators to have a better view of implements.
