John Deere Expands 6R Series Tractors
OLATHE, Kansas (February 6, 2012) –John Deere is expanding its lineup of 6R Series Tractors with three new highly-versatile models perfect for the farm or ranch. The three new models include the 6105R with 105 engine horsepower; 6115R with 115 engine horsepower; and the 6125R with 125 engine horsepower—all in a premium package that replaces the 6030 Premium Tractors.
According to Scott Hessel, product marketing manager with John Deere, the new 6R Series Tractors are designed to be a do-it-all utility tractor with the versatility, power and comfort never before seen in a tractor in this horsepower range.
“We’ve made the cab 20 percent larger and added the GreenStar 3 Command Center with touchscreen display,” says Hessel. “We’ve also included Triple Link and Adaptive Hydraulic Cab suspension to make the new 6R models the most comfortable and easy-to-operate tractors in their class. In addition, we’ve increased the hydraulic lift capacity by 20 percent and added new 50K (31 mph) transmission options that give this spacious utility tractor the functions of a much larger machine.”
All three 6R models come standard with John Deere 4.5L PowerTech PVX Interim Tier 4 diesel engines with Intelligent Power Management that provides an additional 20 hp during transport and non-stationary PTO applications. Transmission options include a 24-speed AutoQuad Plus ECO Transmission (standard), or 16-speed PowerQuad Plus (optional), or IVT Transmissions (optional). IVT and AutoQuad Plus configurations are available with up to 50K (31 mph) transport speed.
The compact design of the new tractors, combined with the power, comfort and control features, make these 6R models a perfect match with new H-Series Loaders and hundreds of other John Deere and Frontier attachments. The tractors also come with Cat. 2/3N lift capacity, Cat. 2drawbar, three lighting package options and two-wheel drive and mechanical front-wheel drive configurations.
“The new 6R Series Tractors have row-crop tractor features with utility tractor functionality and versatility, which makes them ideal for almost any farm, livestock operation, or property maintenance job,” Hessel adds. “These 105 to 125 horsepower models expand our lineup of the 6R Series that we introduced in 2011 and give customers a wider range of tractors to choose from based on their needs.”
