The 6D Series Tractors deliver significant torque rise — 27 percent with the 6130D! You’ll get your work done quickly and efficiently — more quietly, too, thanks to the multiple-rated speeds.
For operators requiring more field speeds to achieve the most precise operating ranges, four transmission options are now available in the 6D Series.
The 24F/8R TSS Hi-Lo and 24F/12R PowrReverser Plus transmissions offer 24 forward speeds for ultimate in speed selection. Convenient push-button controls actuate the electrohydraulic high/low selector.
The forward lever selects one of three speeds, all synchronized shifts for on-the-go shifting with the use of the clutch. This same lever is where the high/low control buttons are located. The range lever selects ranges A, B, C, or D. Ranges C and D are fully synchronized. That means, when upshifting, operators can move from ranges B to C to D without stopping the tractor. On the downshift, operators can move from D back down to C without stopping.
The Hi/Lo feature benefits operators who frequently transport their tractors from field to field or find themselves in bog-down situations during rear power take-off (PTO) work. Customers can push the rabbit button (high) without having to depress the clutch to get a 20 percent increase in speed. They can also push the turtle button (low) to get a 20 percent decrease in speed, similar to downshifting or engine braking without having to grab another gear. The PowrReverser has a built-in engagement override valve for additional safety. This valve requires the clutch pedal to be depressed one time after each engine start before the transmission will begin to operate normally, giving the operator another opportunity to put all focus on the tractor.
Those selecting the 6D Series PowrReverser transmission are looking for unmatched performance. This transmission is ideal for working in tight areas where forward to reverse shifting is a primary occurrence, such as in barns, feedlots, and loader applications.
The 12F/4R TSS and 12F/12R PowrReverser transmissions offer five well-spaced ground speeds placing the operator in the important field-working range of 4 km/h to 12 km/h (2.5 mph to 7.5 mph). The 24F/8R Hi-Lo and 24F/12R PowrReverser Plus transmission will deliver 10 well-spaced ground speeds to match the correct speed for each application. And, with a top speed of 31.6 km/h (17.6 mph), operators will be able to move fast from application to application—getting more done in less time.
A dash-mounted PowrReverser modulation kit (LVB25727) is available to set the aggressiveness of the forward and reverse shuttle modulation that best fits the application or the operator's comfort level.
Two levers, one for speed and one for range, with the addition of an electrohydraulic left-hand reverser in PowrReverser transmissions, provide operators optimum control and maneuverability.
All speed gears (1, 2, 3) are fully synchronized for shifting-on-the-go capabilities, putting less wear on the operator and saving them time in the field. In all 6D transmissions, gears are synchronized for low shifting effort while the operator is doing field or loader work and during transport.
The high and low speeds on the 24F/8R Hi-Lo and the 24F/12R PowrReverser Plus transmissions can be shifted without clutching while the tractor is under load. This makes for quick speed changes when operating in uneven conditions.
The ranges (A, B) are not synchronized. This means the tractor must be stopped for the operator to select the range. However, with operator input, the speeds have been well spaced out to minimize the need to change ranges within applications. The ranges (B to C, C to D, and D to C) are synchronized. That allows the operator to shift ranges on the go in transport and high speed applications like operating a mower-conditioner.
John Deere has led the industry in the innovation of wet clutches. In this wet-clutch design, five 17-cm (6.7-in.) diameter clutch disks provide optimum clutch modulation for smooth operation; the disks are oil-cooled for a lifetime of service.
The biggest advantage of a wet clutch is its ease of use, as the required force to depress the pedal is minimal. Also, with a wet clutch, the need for frequent adjustment and clutch mechanism changeover is eliminated.
John Deere 6D Series Tractors feature the reliable and proven 4.5L (276 cu in.) 2-valve John Deere PowerTech E engine.
The 4.5L PowerTech E engine, used in 6100D, 6115D, and 6130D models, is a diesel engine that can deliver up to 25 percent torque rise.
|Model||Engine||Emission level||Engine displacement (L)||Rated engine speed (rpm)|
|6100D||PowerTech E||Tier 3||4.5||2100|
|6115D||PowerTech E||Tier 3||4.5||2100|
|6130D||PowerTech E||Tier 3||4.5||2100|
This engine is designed for performance, long life, and low maintenance costs.
The engine provides excellent torque, fuel efficiency and durability. The PowerTech E engine was designed to deliver:
The John Deere PowerTech E engine is a 2-valve engine design.
All 6D Series Tractors feature a gear-driven, open-center (constant-flow) hydraulic system with a maximum pressure of 2830 psi (19,500 kPa).
The tractor incorporates a triple hydraulic pump design. The implement, steering-transmission lubrication systems, and transmission all function separately; all three systems utilize a common reservoir resulting in ease of serviceability. Two selective control valves (SCVs) are in base with a third deluxe valve as optional equipment.
The hood tilts opens wide allowing unencumbered engine compartment access. An easy-reach tether cord allows access to effortlessly close the hood. Overriding the two gas struts permits the hooding up to 90 degrees. Unhooking the tether from the radiator support allows the operator to open the hood even further to provide better access for servicing the under hood components.
The tilt-up hood provides easy access from the ground to:
Vertical engine oil and fuel filters minimize spilling for cleaner and faster changes. 500-hour service intervals (when using John Deere Torq-Gard™ oil or Plus-50™ lubricant and filter) for engine oil and filter, fuel filter, and cab air filter reduce maintenance costs over the life of the tractor.
Two engine fuel filters provide the needed protection for the fuel system:
Blowing out the radiator is easy and convenient with the 6D Series Tractors equipped with an in-base, tiltable radiator assembly. Open the hood to clean out the radiator, fan, and cooling package. The condenser can be tilted for better access.
The coolant recovery tank, located behind the air filter, is easily accessible from the ground.
The engine air filter is located under the front of the hood above the radiator. Undoing the quick-attach fastener allows for fast and easy servicing - no tools required. The Power Core air filter removes more than 93 percent of foreign material before it reaches the filter element.
The cab air quality system is comprised of two fresh air cab filters. A filter is located on the bottom side of the left and right side cab roof is easily accessible by removing two wing screws and removing a sealed cover plate.
Open the hood to access the battery. No tools are needed.
The windshield washer tank is conveniently located at the right rear of the cab for easy refilling. This would be the same washer fluid tank for the rear window wiper when ordered as a field-installed kit.
Instead of using a dipstick, the transmission/hydraulic oil level is checked with a sight glass on the left side of the rear axle housing on 6D Series Tractors.
Transmission/hydraulic oil filter is conveniently located and designed to save the operator service time and reduce maintenance costs.
Easy brake pedal travel adjustment is provided on cab and open operator station (OOS) tractors. Turnbuckle linkage is located at the top side of left and right rear axles.
