New John Deere 6R tractor models

New John Deere 6R tractor models

Our customers will have greater choice of horsepower in the mid-size tractors range, with John Deere announcing the addition of new 6R 140, 6R 150, 6R 165 and 6R 185 models to the 6R tractor range.

Available to order now, the new models deliver more horsepower, across a number of frame choices, allowing you to choose the right power-to-weight ratio for your unique requirements.

John Deere Australia/New Zealand Production System Manager, Stephanie Gersekowski, said 6R Tractor’s ability to deliver in tough conditions made them the ideal solution for a diverse range of operations.

“These new models have been built strong and smart to be a versatile and reliable workhorse, and feature increased power capacity on the smaller frame models, while the Hydraulic IPM feature provides an extra 20 to 40 horsepower for hydraulic applications. Ms Gersekowski said.

“With Intelligent Power Management, the 6R 150 and 6R 165 Tractors deliver up to 177 and 213 maximum horsepower in tough operating conditions, such as heavy transport, power takeoff, or hydraulic applications, making them especially suited to hay and livestock operations.”

Precision Ag Technology built in

The new 6R Tractors models all come equipped from the factory with a 4G JDLink™ connection (modem) and all models come with AutoTrac™ guidance .

Once machines are activated in the John Deere Operations Center, machine and field data would flow to the owner’s Operations Center account, free of charge allowing operators to use the Work Planner tool to create field prescriptions and other field tasks remotely, and push the instructions to the tractor’s in-cab display, saving time in the field by not having to manually enter this information.

Critical machine information displays have been moved from the steering column to an easy-to-read digital display that’s now located on the tractor’s cornerpost.

Tailored for livestock and hay

The 6R Tractor Series can be enhanced with the addition of an optional new John Deere Loader Technology Package, which has been specifically developed to assist livestock and hay operators.

“Operators using their 6R to feed livestock or move pallets will achieve great machine effeciency with the John Deere Loader Technology feature,” Ms Gersekowski said.

“The package includes reconfigurable loader joystick with an integrated reverser so operators can set their preferences and easily manage the direction of the tractor at the touch of a button. When equipped with the optional large hydraulic pump, cycle times are improved compared to previous models and help time-poor operators.”

The Loader Technology Package includes a Dynamic Weighing System (DWS), along with Level to Horizon (LTH) and Return to Position (RTP) features. DWS can weigh loads on the go, as opposed to the tractor needing to be stopped, and also rules out the need for a feeder wagon scale.

Using LTH, operators can quickly level an attachment parallel to the ground to avoid spilling material while travelling across uneven ground, while the RTP automatically returns the loader to a predefined boom and bucket position for fast, easy loading of material at repeated heights. This is of particular value for tasks such as loading feed wagons or trailer beds.
