Video: John Deere 9410R 4WD tractor

Our mates across the ditch at New Farm Machinery put the John Deere 9410R 4WD tractor to the test. Check it out in this short video.

The only thing bigger than the 9410R on this occasion is Western Victoria’s Mount Elephant standing prominently in the background, but the 9410R proves a Deere is more agile, has better grip and at 40km/h is much faster than an elephant.

It’s a beautiful looking tractor that is easy to access and exit, which may not seem that important to some but try scaling down from one of these massive machines that isn’t and you will soon appreciate its value.

It impressed me that this twenty plus ton mountainous machine hardly left a footprint suggesting that the dual wheels will dramatically reduce the effects of soil compaction and will be invaluable in the future when hauling much larger equipment than we have been playing with today.

John Deere 9410R Hits:

  • Dual wheels (traction without compaction)
  • Tier 2 engine
  • Simplicity/visibility and efficiency
  • Powershift transmission with efficiency manager
  • High flow hydraulic pump
  • Sounds powerful

John Deere 9410R Misses:

  • Aircleaner cleaning
  • Heavy bonnet
