Working in confined spaces has never been easy, and without the right equipment it’s close to impossible. John Deere 6RC tractors have been purpose-designed to perform brilliantly in and around smaller farm buildings, space-restricted farmyards, and on awkward hilly locations. Their compact footprint and short wheelbase (2400 mm) with a tight turning radius make these tractors manoeuvrable and agile.
Front loader work comes naturally to 6RC tractors. They have a built-in advantage over their competitors: the John Deere Full Frame design. This sturdy double backbone resists the stresses and twisting forces caused by uneven loading, making 6RC tractors unbeatably stable performers in and around your farmyard. The immense structural rigidity also protects drive train components from the negative effects of twisting forces.
Because the 6RC tractors are built on the John Deere Full Frame principle, the cab and its occupant are already isolated from most driveline vibrations. Stress and fatigue are reduced while productivity rises. With the Triple Link front axle suspension (TLS), 6RC tractors provide outstanding operator comfort.
All John Deere engines are designed and engineered specifically for agricultural applications. The 6RC tractors are powered by our renowned 4.5 l PowerTech engines, which have been revised to generate all the power you could need, while consuming less fuel and meeting the demanding Stage IV emissions standards. The proven diesel particulate filter allows the engine to respond quickly to changing loads. The engines are equipped with a new SCR system using DEF that has been developed by John Deere especially for our engines.
All John Deere transmissions combine proven design with innovative power-saving technology. The result: assured reliability, intuitive operation and low servicing costs. Choosing the right transmission will contribute towards your productivity and efficiency. The PowrQuad Plus transmission delivers a maximum of 40 km/h. The AutoQuad Plus and AutoQuad Plus ECO transmissions are also available for the 6RC. For enhanced convenience andproductivity CommandQuad Plus is the transmission of choice. For speciality applications a Creeper transmission is available as an option.
The lifeblood of a tractor is its hydraulic system, powering PTOs, hitches and front loader. 6RC Series tractors provide the extra capability of the John Deere Pressure and Flow Compensated (PFC) hydraulic system, delivering 80 l/min, with an optional increase to 114 l/min
The PTO is available with 540/540E/1000 rpm options, and PTO speeds can be selected from inside the cab.
The integrated front hitch with a 3000 kg lift capacity, perfect for carrying ballast and front implement operation. This front hitch can be combined with the integrated John Deere front PTO and is, of course, fully compatible with John Deere front loaders.
