John Deere introduces the 5105ML Tractor – specifically configured for poultry producers who need a low-profile loader tractor.

The 5105ML is extremely versatile and reliable and it’s compatible with a John Deere 553 or 563 Loader. Due to its low profile, customers can easily operate it inside the confines of most poultry houses. It has plenty of hitch-lift capacity and at 7,700 pounds the 5105ML has the weight to provide added stability to pull poultry-house cleaners. The mounting surface of the loader frame is perpendicular so weight is transferred to the tractor in a more efficient manner. With this type of loader integration and an 18.4-gpm hydraulic flow, operators can load quickly and efficiently when cleaning poultry houses.


The heart of the 5105ML is a reliable John Deere PowerTech™ four-cylinder diesel engine that produces up to 105 engine horsepower (90 PTO hp). Customers can choose from two transmission options for the 5105ML to tailor it to best fit their operation. The transmission options are:
• 12/F/4R SyncShuttle Plus™ Transmission
• 16F/16R PowrReverser™ Transmission with left-hand electro-hydraulic reverser
The 5105ML is available in a two-wheel-drive, or four-wheel-drive configuration – and comes equipped with adjustable full-coverage rear fenders, a differential lock, and fuel-saving economy PTO.

The full-coverage, composite rear fenders are an effective way to keep excessive dust and debris from reaching the operator station. They won’t rust or dent like metal fenders, or crack or shred like fiberglass fenders. They also can be adjusted up or down with five inches of fender travel to accommodate different tire sizes. Rear brake lights are built into the fender.

Color-coded operator controls are mounted between the right-hand fender and low-profile seat for easy reach. Additional standard equipment consists of dual-rear work lights, breakaway indicator lights, a low-profile tilt/telescoping steering wheel, three hydraulic remotes, and a reinforced fuel tank with protective guarding. The foldable mid-mount ROPS can be lowered without tools when a John Deere Loader is attached for easy maneuverability in low-clearance areas such as poultry houses.
