    Default 2520 REVEALED!!

    2520 COMPACT UTILITY TRACTOR
    Just in time for the fall season, John Deere's 2520 is the latest installment of the highly
    acclaimed TWENTY Series Compact Utility Tractors. Customers will find the 2520 primed
    for work with significant improvements over the 4115, the similar-size model it replaces.
    The engine is 11% larger, with 10% more gross horsepower (26.5 hp), than the 4115 engine.
    The stronger powerplant will provide all the torque that commercial operators demand.
    Consequently, residential customers will be thrilled with the commercial-grade performance
    when they mow, till, grade, etc. as they maintain their property. Further, the new engine is
    "EPA Tier II compliant" and therefore produces cleaner exhaust, a plus for the operator as
    well as the environment.
    The 2520 Compact Utility Tractor features the first mower deck with OnRamp™ technology,
    which makes it easier than ever to both attach the mower and remove it from the tractor. The
    theme of easy-to-attach, easy-to-detach continues with the Quik-Park™ system on the 200CX
    Loader. (For customers who do not require the Quik-Park system, the 200X Loader is also
    available at a lower cost.) Finally, with an even lower price than the 4115, customers will be
    eager to test drive the new 2520 Compact Utility Tractor.
    The 2520 Tractor sports the same agricultural styling as the 3000 and 4000 TWENTY Series
    Tractors. This common design signifies the John Deere legacy of reliability and durability. In
    addition, improvements such as a new high-back seat and decreased pedal efforts will further
    widen the “comfort gap” between John Deere and the competition.
    The new 62D OnRamp Mower addresses a key customer complaint—attachment removal.
    With standard hydrostatic transmission and dual pedal controls, even the first-time buyer will
    be able to operate like a pro. The 2520 arrives ready-to-work with standard mid-DSCV’s, 4-
    wheel drive, mid- and rear-independent PTO’s, position-control rockshaft, and steering
    brakes.

    • Equipment attachability
    —Quik-Tatch front hitch allows for fast and easy installation of front implements (blade,
    brooms, and snow blower)
    • Category 1 three-point hitch
    —Allows for hookup of a variety of 3-point hitch implements
    Comfortable
    • Contoured, comfortable seat
    —High-backed with suspension for added operator comfort
    • Roll-Gard™ ROPS and seat belt
    • Standard cruise control
    Implement Compatibility:
    Implements for the 2520 Tractor include the following:
    • Front: The 2520 will use the current 54-in. Front Blade, 52-in. and 60-in. Rotary Broom,
    47-in. Snow Blower (available November 2005); however, some attaching components
    require updating to work with this new tractor.
    Note:The front quick hitch and new front implement attaching bundles for the 2520 Compact
    Utility Tractor are scheduled for availability 15 October 2005. Order codes and pricing
    will be released at that time. The front Quick Hitch will be compoundable with the new
    OnRamp Mid-Mount Mower deck using a special bracket, which is due out later this
    year.
    • Loader: 200CX Loader (parkable), 200X Loader (non-parkable)
    • Mid: 62D OnRamp Mower Deck, 72TT Mower Deck
    • Rear: 46 Backhoe and various Category 1 three-point-hitch-mounted implements
    Product positioning: The 2520 begins with the "designed-in" John Deere standards for
    engineering excellence, comfort, durability, and reliability. However, the characteristics that
    separate the 2520 from all other competitive tractors are ease-of-use (dual-pedal control for
    forward and reverse, standard cruise control) and ease of attaching/detaching implements
    (iMatch Quick Hitch, 62D OnRamp Deck, and the 200CX Parkable Loader).
    Primary customers: The 2520 Tractor is built to a commercial standard for robustness. And
    yet, this tractor is so comfortable and easy to use that it is equally at home on the farm—even
    if the “farm” is a residential estate.
    Specific customer groups for the 2520 Tractor include large-property owners, landscape
    installers, schools, and municipalities. With the addition of a 200CX Loader and a 46
    Backhoe, the 2520 Tractor also makes an excellent package for rental businesses.

    From Deere Bulletin 05-67, RampOn is a "drive over feature" that also has provision built in to pick up the deck with the 3PH and iMatch. The same bulletin also states that the 2520 comes in priced less than the 4115 it replaces. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

    Deck Info

    </font><font color="blue" class="small">( The new 54D and 62D OnRamp Mid-Mount Mowers offer customers great cut quality along
    with unsurpassed ease of attachment. These new mowers are a perfect match for the new 2320
    and 2520 Tractors as well as the 4115 Tractor.
    Key benefits: The 54D and 62D OnRamp Mowers offer customers the ability to easily install
    and remove their mower deck from the tractor in just a few minutes on a variety of surfaces.
    These new mowers are packed with features, including the following:
    • On ramps - the ramps guide the front tires and are the secret to helping the operator
    remove/install the mower deck quickly and easily
    • Stow ‘n’ Go brackets – once the mower is detached from the tractor, the Stow ‘n’ Go
    brackets allow the customer to use either the 3-point hitch or iMatch™ quick hitch to
    easily transport the mower for storage or service
    • Heavy-duty gauge wheels are equipped with a quick-release pin, memory setting, and
    grease fitting
    • Convertible deck for side discharge, mulching, or bagging (3-bag material collection
    system available February 2006)
    • Optional independent lift kits – use the tractor hydraulics to lift/lower the mower deck
    independently of the 3-point hitch (as opposed to the standard mechanical lift system,
    which uses the 3-point hitch)
    • Simple 3-step installation: 1) Drive over mower deck; 2) Latch front support bracket and
    mid-rockshaft arms; 3) Connect mid-PTO
    • PTO shaft has a lock-back collar that allows for easy installation on the PTO shaft of the
    tractor )</font>

    </font><font color="blue" class="small">( These mowers are designed to achieve the highest level
    of easy-attachability, while providing the quality of cut a customer would expect from a
    commercial mid-mount mower.
    The spindle pockets and deck shells have been structurally reinforced to support the
    drive-over stresses. This provides the strength and robustness of a commercial mower deck
    while providing the stability and versatility of a tractor, compared to a ZTR.
    Product positioning: The 54D and 62D OnRamp Mowers provide the cut quality that
    customers expect from John Deere. These mowers are sturdy enough for many customer
    applications yet priced competitively. However, what sets these mowers apart from the
    competition most is the ease of attachment and storage.
    Tractor compatibility:
    *Please note that the 2320 and 2520/4115 do NOT share a common 62D Mower. The mower
    decks are only slightly different but can be easily identified by the designation on the serial
    number plate: “62D1” for the 2320 Tractor and “62D2” for the 2520/4115 Tractors. They are
    NOT interchangeable. See the price pages for order codes.
    The 54D and 62D Mid-Mount Mowers are compatible with the 200X and 200CX Loaders as
    well as the front quick-tatch hitch. The front hitch/mid-mower combination bracket,
    LVB24899, is needed to use OnRamp mowers and the front hitch (LVB24899 available winter
    2006).
    Independent lift: Optional independent lift kits increase versatility by allowing rear
    implements to remain on the tractor and be raised and lowered independently of the
    mid-mount mower.
    • Independent lift kits available for the 54D and 62D Mower Decks can be used on the 2320
    and 2520 Tractors only (4115 does not support independent lift)
    • Raising and lowering the mower deck is easily done by using the loader joystick
    • Use the chart below to identify which kits are necessary to achieve independent lift
    • If the tractor does not have independent lift, most rear attachment must be removed from
    the 3-point hitch or iMatch™ quick hitch in order to remove or install a 54D or 62D
    Mower Deck. Independent lift will also ensure the 3-point hitch will not contact the
    collection bags when using a material collection system.
