John Deere machines are known for their quality of work and efficiency. They have different series for different capacity functions. The John Deere D series and John Deere E series are both efficient, but they have a number of differences.
From lawns and gardens to heavy construction and everything in between, John Deere boasts quite a variety of heavy duty machinery for just about any land related activity. Originating in the United States, this machine has managed to spread its excellence across the globe. Many farmers and home owners have an item or two from the John Deere flagship, and practicality and excellence is the reason.
Part of the John Deere products includes the D and E series tractors. They are essentially utility tractors, particularly in farm settings. The D series are smaller tractor than the E series tractors. They specialize in optimal agricultural applications and heavy lifting while E series tractors specialize in heavy agricultural activity and heavy duty lifting. The E series tractors use large and heavy duty implements while those of the D series are of moderate strength and weight in comparison.
Each of these series has a number of tractors with different horse powers and applications. For this reason, we are going to conduct a comparison of two tractors, one from each series, to find out their main differences. The smallest tractor of the D series is the 5039D and that of the E series is the 5076E. The 5076E has a variation called the 5076EN. It as a narrow version of the tractor that is ideal for entry into farms with narrow crop spacing. But what is the difference between these two tractors?
The 5039D tractor has a 39 horsepower, 3 cylinder engine which has an inbuilt oil cooler. The key feature on this engine is the Collarshift Transmission that has side lift and its oil immersed brakes, also called wet brakes. It has a lift capacity of up to 1,600 kilograms, and is used in crop farms.
The 5076EN tractor has a 92 horsepower, 4 cylinder engine also with an inbuilt oil cooler. It boasts a heavy duty cylinder block and cast aluminum pistons for efficiency and longevity. It also uses the oil immersed brakes and has a lift capacity of 1,530 kilograms.
John Deere 5039D vs John Deere 5076EN – How do they compare?
Horse power and engine revolutions
The John Deere 5039D has a 39 horsepower engine that generates 2,100 piston revolutions per minute. This is quite impressive and makes the tractor quite effective in moderate farm applications. The engine has a total of three pistons which are quite strong and durable. The engine is oil cooled, with the cooling system built into the engine. The cooling oil is introduced into the engine as a jet.
The John Deere 5076EN has a 92 horsepower turbocharged engine that that generates 2,400 piston revolutions per minute. This machine is quite heavy duty and is suited for use in ravines, ditches and other hostile environments. The engine block has 4 pistons and it is cooled using oil jets released from inside the block.
The surprising thing about these engines is that the 5039D has a higher lifting capacity than the 5076EN. It can carry up to 1,600 kilograms while the 5076EN can only carry up to 1,530 kilograms, 30 kilos less than its counterpart, even with almost three times the horsepower.
The table below gives a brief detail of the main differences between the two machines.
|Machine||John Deere 5039D||John Deere 5076EN|
|Horse Power||39 horsepower||92 horsepower|
|Rpms||2,100 revolutions per minute||2,400 revolutions per minute|
|Number of pistons||3||4|

This tractor has a powerful 92 horsepower engine and is ideal for high power performance. It is able to work in the most difficult environments without straining. Its engine has 4 pistons and is oil cooled. It has a carrying capacity of 1,530 kilos which is significantly less than the 5039D which is less powered.
Some of the tools it comes with include a tool box, a right side stairway, front counterweights, rear counterweights, creeper and a 3rd rear SCV.
- It is highly powered
- It has high torque and high fuel efficiency
- It has high ground clearance
- It can work in hostile environments
- It comes with tools
- It carries significantly less load than the 5039D
John Deere has a record for manufacturing high performance machines for all sorts of activity. Everything from mowing to excavation and construction can be done using a John Deere machine. Both the 5039D and 5076EN are high performance tractors that perform well in their areas of expertise. They are both quite strong, and will work efficiently where you need them to. I would recommend the 5039D to persons who have moderate activity farms but who need to carry heavy loads. The 5076EN is ideal for intense activity in rough terrain, and will also carry a decent load, just not as heavy as the 5039D would.
