John Deere 6M Series Tractors
Designed for versatility and efficiency

CRESTMEAD, Queensland (28 April, 2014) - John Deere’s versatile 6M Series Tractors are designed to meet the needs of livestock, arable and speciality farms, and offer more power, functionality and operator comfort than their 6030 Series predecessors. The 6M range includes models from 77 kW to 125 kW (105 to 170 engine hp).


John Deere 6M Series Tractors feature a full-frame design, three wheelbase sizes, optional Triple Link Suspension (TLS) and an optional front axle brake to deliver maximum braking power with minimal pedal force.


The 6115M, 6125M, 6130M and 6140M models are equipped with Stage IIIB compliant 4.5-litre four-cylinder John Deere PowerTech™ PVX engine, while the larger 6150M and 6170M are powered by a Stage IIIB 6.8-litre six-cylinder John Deere PowerTech PVX engine. Using field-proven technologies to meet the latest emissions standards, these fuel efficient diesel-only engines feature cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), a variable geometry turbocharger (VGT) and an exhaust filter. For the budget-conscious farmer, Tier 2 versions with PowerTech E engines, compliant with US EPA Tier 2 emissions regulations, are also available. The 6105M, 6125M, 6140M, 6150M and 6170M models offer this lower-cost option with proven performance.


The enhanced cab offers numerous improvements, including a newly designed dashboard with an integrated display to facilitate machine settings. By providing useful information to the operator, the display can also be used as a performance monitor.


The proven John Deere PowrQuad™ and AutoQuad™ Plus 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. Adding significant customer value, this EcoShift feature improves the tractor’s fuel efficiency and further reduces noise levels.


More power, faster response times, improved operator comfort and enhanced efficiency are provided by the 6M tractor range’s closed-centre pressure and flow compensated hydraulic system. This can accommodate up to four mechanical selective control valves (SCVs) in the rear and three mid-mounted mechanical independent control valves. The hydraulic pump delivers up to 114 litres/min and is available on all cab models.


Other options designed to provide additional versatility and performance include tyre sizes of up to 2m, ex-factory front hitch and PTO, and a John Deere front loader which is tailored to match the tractor.


In addition, the optional iTEC Basic headland management system helps the operator to automate multiple functions simultaneously. John Deere 6M Series Tractors are also GreenStar™ and ISOBUS-ready to further improve productivity.
