Ample speeds and ease of operation for demanding applications with the 12F/12R PowrReverser. This transmission comes standard with a dual speed 540/540 economy power take-off (E-PTO) is ideal for applications requiring frequent directional changes such as loader work.

  • Effortlessly switch directions with a small finger motion using the clutch-less electrohydraulic fingertip directional lever
    • Frees the right-hand to operate other tractor controls, such as the loader, rear implements, or throttle, as the directional lever allows the operator to steer and shift direction with the left-hand
    • The control is located on the left side of the steering column and selects forward, reverse, and neutral positions
  • Ideal for rear blading and any applications that require frequent directional changes in tight spaces
  • Lower engine vibration, reduced noise, less wear and tear on the engine, reduced fuel consumption, and increased operator comfort from the standard economy PTO (E-PTO)
Additional detail
Electrohydraulic reverser lever Electrohydraulic reverser lever

NOTE: A neutral start switch requires the directional lever be in the neutral position to start the engine. 

12F/12R transmission includes:
  • Hydraulic wet clutches (forward and reverse)
    • Maximize durability and outlast the life of any dry clutch
    • When tractors are run by multiple operators with a variety of experience levels, a wet clutch is the best way to maintain transmission integrity and performance while decreasing clutch replacement costs
  • Platform-mounted shift levers (four gears, three ranges) 
    • Two platform-mounted levers offer easy and comfortable shifting for a pleasant operator experience
    • The gear-shift lever is easy to reach, and the less-used range lever is shorter. Unique knobs make it easy to distinguish between the two
  • Left-hand reverser
  • Constant-mesh helical-cut gears
    • Provide quieter operation and excellent reliability while the pressure-lubricated top shaft adds to the transmission durability
    • Fully enclosed, rigid shift linkages for short throw and crisp shifts enable all operators to clearly know in what range and gear they are operating
  • Pressure-lubricated top shaft
  • Positive park pawl: provides positive park and eliminates the need for a hand brake
  • Neutral start switch


The forward lever selects one of four gears. The operator must depress the clutch while shifting. The rear lever selects one of three ranges: A, B, or C. 

The PowrReverser has a built-in engagement override valve for additional safety. This valve requires the clutch pedal to be depressed one time after each engine start before the transmission will begin to operate normally, giving the operator another opportunity to put all focus on the tractor. 

The speed of directional changes can be adjusted to the operator's preference or application demands with the field-installed infinitely-variable control kit
See the PTO functional area for more information on E-PTO.

Turn around in tight spaces with a turning radius as short as 3.54 m (11.6ft). Operate with consistent performance and enjoy a comfortable ride from the ten degrees of axle oscillation that follows uneven terrain.


Axle oscillation also reduces the stress and maintenance cost on the axle spindles because loads are consistently spread across the entire axle. The centerline design eliminates the need for drive shaft universal joints that require regular maintenance. Anti-wrap shielding on the driveline is standard to prevent crop material and debris from building around the driveline and ensures tractor performance. Minimize maintenance time while maximizing front axle performance with conveniently located three grease points.


NOTE: When MFWD is engaged, an indicator light will appear on the dash. See operator’s manual for additional details on operation and adjustment.

Made of heavy-duty steel for added reliability, the 2WD front axle is adjustable in 50.8-mm (2-in.) increments to adapt to a wide variety of applications. 

  • The front axle provides 10 degrees of axle oscillation, allowing the axle to follow uneven terrain for a consistent performance, comfortable ride, and reduced stress and maintenance costs on axle spindles.
  • A 55-degree turn angle provides excellent maneuverability for high-torque tasks in tight spaces.
  • The steering cylinder is bolted directly to the rear of the front axle, so the axle housing protects the steering cylinder from potential punctures created by rough terrain, rocky soil conditions, or thick crop material.


Broadening the 5E 3-Cylinder Tractor product lineup to offer a 2WD front axle in a cab configuration provides you with the well-known benefits of the 5E 3-Cylinder Tractors in conjunction with the ability to stay out of the elements and have the tighter turning radius that 2WD front axles provide.

Synchronized shifting in all forward and reverse gears Synchronized shifting in all forward and reverse gears
Range selection pattern Range selection pattern

Nine forward and three reverse (9F/3R) speeds are achieved by using two platform-mounted levers for shift operation. The gear lever at the operator's right hand selects one of three forward gears and one reverse gear, as well as the integrated park position. The range lever at the operator's left hand selects collar-shift A, B, and C ranges.

Operators can easily switch directions without having to completely stop the tractor with synchronized, in-line, shuttle-shift capability between forward and reverse gears on the gear-shift lever in all three ranges (A, B, and C ranges).

A neutral start switch requires the gear-shift lever be in the neutral or park positions to start the engine.

A positive park pawl on the transmission provides positive park and eliminates the need for a hand brake. This also eliminates clutch service costs that occur when the park brake is accidentally left engaged.

Power an implement at 540 PTO rpm at a lower tractor engine rpm with Economy PTO (540E PTO). Depending on the transmission, the 540E PTO engine requirement could be as low as 1588 rpm. 540E PTO is ideal for many lighter-duty applications including mowing or spraying that do not require full engine horsepower.

  • Save fuel 
  • Reduce vibration and noise level 
  • Increase engine life
Additional details

How does 540E PTO work? 
On John Deere Tractors, the shiftable 540/540E mode operates a little like shifting gears on the transmission. By engaging economy mode, the operator changes the gear reduction ratio keeping the PTO spinning at 540 rpm while reducing the engine rpm. When the operator shifts the PTO back into the standard 540 mode, a different gear ratio is used to operate the PTO at 540 rpm and the engine at standard PTO rated speed. 

To operate in economy mode, the shiftable 540/540E lever must be in 540E and then the throttle can be increased to the appropriate rpm. When in 540E, the tractor has a throttle limiter that keeps the operator from increasing engine rpm over the 540E setting. The limiter is used to prevent accidental over-speeding of PTO implements and protection against binding the PTO shaft.

The 540E setting cannot be used with full advertised PTO horsepower. If full PTO horsepower is required, operate the tractor in the standard 540 mode.


Details on the engine rpm required for standard 540 and 540 economy mode can be found in the operator’s manual along with additional details on operation and adjustment.

The stationary PTO enable switch is in base for all 5000 Utility Tractors produced starting on 1 November 2020 (except for the 5E 3-Cylinder Tractors with 9F/3R transmission which began in November 2021). The PTO shuts down if the operator leaves the seat with the PTO on. Stationary operation of a tractor PTO-powered implement allows the operator to leave the driving position with the PTO engaged by pressing the stationary PTO enable switch. See operator’s manual for additional details on operation and adjustment. Refer to the chart below for models with the stationary PTO enable switch in base.

Upgraded from a 4 series and blown away!

I traded my 4052M in for 5055E after I ran into trouble on my small 40 acre plot in south Alabama. The 4052M just didn't have enough ground clearance which led to several breakdowns breaking electrical and hydro lines hitting stumps and brush. I have to say I am blown away at the 5055E with only 8 more engine horse power than the 4052M it feels like double the tractor! The pulling power, the loader power, PTO power, the transmission, the ground clearance, and the strength of the front axle really set this thing apart from other tractors in its class. I know the E series is the economy class but it really doesn't feel like it. John Deere has really improved the E series over the years this thing feels and operates like a more refined tractor than an economy model. If your worried about the E series being an low end model (I was skeptical at first) don't be as the 2020 model 5055E will not disappoint. I even let a good friend and neighbor use it for the afternoon and the first thing he said when he brought it back was " wow this is a strong tractor ". Certainly recommend!

Nothing but troubles since I purchased it

2018 5055e purchased with 200 hrs. New loader scratched and bent from being chained down during shipping. Hydraulics won't lift what my 4 series did. Deere says Hydraulics need adjustment. Power steering vibrates when turning the wheel. Deere says its normal. AC blows warm air. Deere says check filters maybe too warm out. Fuel tank started leaking. Ordered new. New tank has no spots to attach grouns. Deere said tap to frame. New tank has the wrong size (too small) Fuel attachment. Deere says nothing they can do but put in a reduction fitting to attach fuel line. Starts very hard. Deere says its normal. 80 degrees now can't wait till winter. Biggest piece of junk I've ever owned.

Superb utility tractor!

This tractor has surpassed my expectations (and I had very high ones). Whether doing mowing of dense tall field grasses or the severe clearing of wooded areas of 3” saplings (with a 6 ft Woods 720X), loading wet 5x5 bales, or the bucket filled with soil or gravel, this green beast never sweats. It’s very rare I that ever have to exceed 1600 rpm (with the ePTO), and the versatile 12 speed power reverser is just simply sweet! Absolutely no regrets, no remorse, totally satisfied with both the tractor and my dealer, would buy again in a heartbeat.

I can't be any happier

This tractor has everything you could ask for the diesel motor purrs and uses no fuel hardly. And the loader is the best on this also lots of power and tractor is just the best thing you are gonna buy for the money. Agrivision was the greatest to work with also. Bailey is a good sales lady.

  • power
  • comfortable to ride on
  • motor just purrs
  • easy to use
  • agrivision was good to work with
  • price

  • nothing bad from me

Handy tractor for small beef cattle operation

I use this tractor for tedding, raking, moving hay wagons and loading cattle manure and poultry litter. Also use this tractor to run small square hay baler. Very pleased so far. No problems.
