Low-profile standard open operator station (OOS)

Right-hand fender shield and low-profile seat Right-hand fender shield and low-profile seat
Overview

The standard OOS on 5ML Tractors was designed for low-clearance applications. It features a low-profile seat, a smaller-diameter steering wheel, protected controls, and a low-profile, rear-mounted rollover protective structure (ROPS). Rounding off these standard features and incorporated into each operator platform is a shield which limits heat transfer from the hydraulics to the operator.

Benefits
  • Ability to drive under low-clearance areas
  • Visibility of the front of the tractor with a sloping hood
  • Conveniently located operator controls within arms’ reach on the right-hand console control pod
  • Protect control pod from low-hanging crops with the right-hand fender shield
Additional details

All the most crucial operator controls are conveniently located within arms’ reach on the right-hand console control pod. The engine throttle control, selective control valve (SCV) levers, power take-off (PTO) engagement, and hitch-lift control levers are grouped together. On the 5ML, this control pod is positioned on the right-side fender, protected from low-hanging crops by a shield.

 

Color-coded bands on the SCV levers correspond with the color on the rear SCVs, making it easy for any operator to determine which lever operates which rear SCV.

 

The 5ML Tractor also offers optional fender extensions to minimize crop disturbance, especially in orchards or tree nut applications. Two fender extension options are available to meet varying tire sizes and coverage preferences.

 

The foldable ROPS on the 5ML Tractor has a unique design and is 15.2-cm (6-in.) lower at maximum height than the standard 5M Tractors.

 

The shifter linkages are tighter to offer a more accurate shift pattern, which translates to a crisper throw between gears. Incorporating technology found on standard 5M Tractors, the 5ML now offers a declutch button, enabling the operator to shift gears within a range without the use of the foot clutch.

 

5ML Tractors also include the following features:

  • Retractable seat belts
  • Rear certified ROPS for OOS tractors
  • Heat shield limiting hydraulic heat passed onto the operator Key-switch interlock prevents bypass starting
  • Audible and visual PTO warning alerts when the operator leaves the seat with the PTO engaged
  • Positive park position prevents the tractor from moving when the engine is off
  • Four amber turn-signal/flashing warning lights for road transport (these are break-away) Slow-moving vehicle (SMV) sign alerts other road users during transport
  • Safety decals keep safety in the minds of new and experienced operators
  • Left- and right-hand steps provide easy and convenient access from both sides of the tractor Fuel system is fully grounded to meet safety and fuel fill regulation requirements
  • For convenience of operation, the fuel and diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) fill are both on the same side with clearly marked and color-coded caps. The DEF tank has a capacity of 12.1-L (3.2-gal.), which is more than enough to sustain proper tractor operation and fuel treatment for more than one full tank of diesel. A field-installed lockable fuel cap is offered for protection and peace of mind.

Transmission controls on PowrReverser™ transmission models:

Gear and range shift levers are located to the right of the operator. The gear lever incorporates a declutch button enabling the operator to shift gears without the use of the foot clutch. Unique knobs also make it easier to distinguish between the two.

Gear lever with declutch button Gear lever with declutch button

Transmission controls on PowrQuad™ transmission models:

 

A single transmission control is located to the right of the operator. This control features the ability to shift through gears within a range using the rabbit button to increase gears and the turtle button to decrease gears. A range change can be completed with this control, as well by moving through A-D ranges similar to a traditional range controller. To aide in ease of operation, operators can use the integrated declutch button rather than the foot clutch to change ranges.

Transmission control on PowrQuad transmission models Transmission control on PowrQuad transmission models

A foot throttle with a platform pedal is located on the right side of the operator. The pedal is positioned for ease of use, yet does not clutter the floor. The hand throttle is easily accessible on the right hand console.

 

Engaged by either foot, the differential lock pedal is placed on the floor.

Differential lock button Differential lock button

When the tractor is used in applications requiring the clutch and brake pedals to be used frequently, the operator will see the benefit of the suspended pedals.

 

The electrohydraulic forward/reverse direction lever is located on the left-hand side of the instrument console, connected to the steering column. There is also a guard for the reverser lever. Operated with the left-hand finger, the right hand is free to simultaneously run the loader, hitch, or hand throttle.

Left hand reverser with guard Left hand reverser with guard

3-point hitch controls

 

Mechanical hitch controls are available on models equipped with a PowrReverser transmission, while models equipped with a PowrQuad transmission will have an electrohydraulic (EH) hitch. With an EH hitch, operators will have the functionality to raise and lower the hitch from the rear left-hand fender, reducing time when attaching and detaching implements.

Left-hand fender hitch control Left-hand fender hitch control

PTO controls and speeds

The 5ML features electrohydraulic PTO engagement on all models.

 

The push/pull knob on open station tractors is conveniently located beside the hand throttle on the right-hand side of the operator. When the PTO is engaged, a light on the instrument panel will illuminate and PTO speed is indicated by target bars. Models equipped with a PowrReverser transmission have a 540/540E rpm shiftable PTO while models equipped with a PowrQuad transmission have a three-speed PTO, 540/540E/1000 rpm.

 

Enhancing operator safety, the tractor does not start with the PTO engaged. An alarm sounds if the operator attempts to leave the seat with the PTO engaged. The PTO shaft is protected by a hinged shield.

 

Hydraulics controls

The color-coded bands on the levers, which control triple rear SCVs, correspond to the color of the dust cap and the SCV valve they control.

 

Mechanical front-wheel drive (MFWD) controls

All four-wheel drive (4WD) axles are equipped with the engage-on-the-go MFWD. This toggle switch is now located on the right-hand console.

 

Lighting controls – Multi-position dial

The five-position lighting package is straightforward with the lighting control switch on the right side of the steering column. The switch positions are: off, warning, worklight, transport 1 (warning and high-beam headlights), and transport 2 (warning and headlights). A turn-signal lever is located on the left side of the steering column for quick and easy use.
