Front loader option from Deere

STOCKMEN operating Deeres 5000 and new 5010 series tractors from 53hp to 80hp now have the option of a new front loader – the 531.

Supplied in mechanical self-levelling (MSL) and non self-levelling (NSL) formats, the 531 has a maximum lift height of 3.24m.

Maximum lift capacities for MSL and NSL models are 1104kg and 889kg respectively.

An important feature of the loader, says Deere, is its compact design which helps to maintain the tractors stability when carrying heavy loads.

For operating auxiliary services, three independent hydraulic functions can be controlled from a single lever using selective control valves (SCV).

UK price of the new 531 front loader including MSL is £4150. &#42
