John Deere expands its 7030 Premium Series Tractor lineup with the addition of the new 180-engine hp (152-PTO hp) 7530 Premium.

“Our 7530 Premium Tractor provides customers with features and options similar to our existing 7430 Premium Tractor, but adds extra power for loader or field work on farm or livestock operations.

“Plus, it's sized right to power mower conditioners, pull 12-row planters, and handle most light tillage chores. It's a nimble, light-weight tractor that fits well into loader, hay-making, and transport applications,” says Brett Showalter, division manager, marketing for John Deere.

The 7530 Premium comes equipped with a fuel-efficient 6.8L John Deere PowerTech Plus engine, a spacious ComfortGard Premium Cab, and has a rear hitch-lift capacity of 10,600 pounds.

In addition, the new model features a 29-gpm closed-center, pressure-and-flow compensated hydraulic system — and updated CommandCenter controls that let you precisely dial in the tractor's hydraulics to fit the task at hand. All 7030 Premium Series Tractors are outfitted with an industry-exclusive full-length frame that's teamed with a rugged rear axle. This combination provides plenty of strength and stability to move heavy round bales with confidence.

The 7530 Premium Tractor has similar power levels and a slightly smaller wheelbase at 105.7 inches, compared to the larger 7730 Premium model with a 112.6-inch wheelbase.

Customers can add a number of fuel-saving options to the 7530 Premium including a 540E/1,000/1,000E PTO. When operated in economy mode this PTO lets you decrease engine rpms and maintain rated PTO speed to help save fuel and keep operating costs low.

“One more fuel-saving option to consider is our Infinitely Variable Transmission (IVT). It's a simple transmission to operate. A single lever lets you easily move the tractor from 0 to 25 mph, and any speed in between — for shift-free, seamless speed selection,” says Showalter.

Triple Link Suspension also can be added to improve operator comfort and overall tractor performance.

“TLS is an independent suspension system that smoothes out your ride for enhanced comfort across rough roads or fields and improves traction for better pulling efficiency,” says Showalter.
