Replacing the previous 5020 series models, the new range is available as standard (R) models or as narrow (RN) versions with an overall width of 1.86m for working in crop rows.

On the R models, a full-frame chassis design has allowed a 20% higher payload and the use of larger, heavier implements up a maximum of 6,600kg. The tractors can optionally be equipped with a front hitch, front PTO and various front-loader packages.

All three tractors are powered by 4.5-litre PowerTechE turbo-charged engines, certified according to Tier IIIa emission requirements.

There is also a choice of two transmissions - the basic 16/16 PowrQuad Plus and the new AutoQuad Plus - both with an electric power reverser and new de-clutch button for more comfortable shifting.
