The John Deere 7000 TEN series tractors represent a significant change in the transmission system compared to previous John Deere tractor models in this category. John Deere 7710 and 7810 series tractors are the first of the 7000 TEN series tractors offering an infinitely variable transmission (IVT). These tractors provide infinite vehicle speeds in the forward mode from 50 meters/hr to 40 km/hr or an optional 50 km/hr. Reverse mode provides infinite vehicle speeds from 50 meters/hr to 17 km/hr. The IVT provides performance improvements in several areas for unmatched operator convenience and control. The new IVT uses an electric signal to control the electro-hydraulic hydrostatic system with mechanical power train. The IVT represents a hydro-mechanical transmission system using electronics, hydraulics and mechanical systems’ integration to achieve the required performance. This paper describes the IVT system configuration, components, operation, characteristics and some of the engineering considerations dealt with in the development process. The overall IVT system truly represents a “drive-by-wire” mechatronic design.
