New John Deere tractor makes UK debut at AgriScot

John Deere’s new single-fuel 6M Series tractor range makes its public debut in the UK at AgriScot in November, in the shape of the 125hp 6125M model. This is being shown alongside a 190hp 6190R tractor equipped with the new DirectDrive transmission, a 990 variable chamber round baler with the revolutionary Fast Release System (FRS) and an XUV 855D 4x4 Gator utility vehicle.

The versatile 6M Series is designed to provide more power, functionality and operator comfort than its 6030 Series predecessors, and offers new levels of efficiency and performance from a standard tractor.

This newly styled range includes tractors from 115hp to a new top of the range 170hp (EC 97/68), and a 140hp model featuring the highest power level yet from a John Deere four-cylinder tractor. The existing 6130, 6230 and 6330 Standard Cab models from 85 to 105hp will remain in the range for 2013.

John Deere 6M Series tractors feature a full-frame design, Stage IIIB compliant 4.5-litre four-cylinder or 6.8-litre six-cylinder PowerTech PVX engines with a new cooling system, and an improved hydraulic system. The range also offers three wheelbase sizes, optional Triple Link Suspension (TLS) and an optional front axle brake to deliver maximum braking power with minimal pedal force.

The enhanced cab offers numerous improvements, including a newly designed dashboard with an integrated onboard display to facilitate machine settings. The display can also be used as a performance monitor. Further options include an ex-factory front hitch and pto, and a choice of John Deere front loaders designed to match individual tractors.

The proven PowrQuad and AutoQuad Plus 40kph transmissions allow smooth gear changes on the move, assisted by a standard declutch button. Thanks to the newly available EcoShift mode, engine rpm is automatically reduced when reaching high speeds, thus improving the tractor’s fuel efficiency and further reducing noise levels.

An optional iTEC Basic headland management system helps the operator to automate multiple functions simultaneously. John Deere 6M Series tractors can also be optionally fitted with GreenStar and ISOBUS ready wiring, and come fitted as standard with CESAR Datatag and integrated immobiliser systems.
