John Deere's 6MC & 6RC Series has a compact footprint and short wheelbase to perform efficiently in tight spaces and tricky terrain.
CRESTMEAD, Queensland (3 March, 2014) – John Deere has introduced three new models in both the 6M and 6R Series Tractor ranges with a more compact profile. Built in Mannheim, Germany, the new 6MC and 6RC tractors are designed specifically for medium-size arable, livestock and mixed farms, and are suitable for local councils and other professional grounds and turf care customers.
New 6MC Series Tractors
The new 6090MC, 6100MC and 6110MC models are equipped with a smooth, highly efficient PowrQuad™ Plus transmission and 4.5-litre four-cylinder John Deere PowerTech™ PWX engine. Using field-proven technologies, these fuel-efficient, diesel-only engines feature cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and an exhaust filter for improved performance and reduced emissions.
The 6MC tractors feature a 2.4m wheelbase for stability and versatility, while an optional low-profile cab allows easy access to small buildings. A durable full frame is specifically designed to accept front loaders such as the John Deere H310 or H340. These are available in non self-leveling, mechanical self-leveling, and hydraulic self-leveling versions, with a wide variety of loader attachments.
With up to four mechanical SCVs, the closed-centre pressure-compensated hydraulic system provides quick response times and a lift capacity of up to 5600kg. It is available with a 65 or 80-litre/min capacity pump.
These tractors also feature a fuel efficient 540/540E/1000rpm PTO plus a comfortable cab with 320 degree visibility and low noise levels.
New 6RC Series Tractors
The new 6090RC, 6100RC and 6110RC tractors represent the premium version of this new line of more compact tractors. Supplied by a massive 205-litre fuel tank, the John Deere PowerTech PWX 4.5-litre is also equipped with Intelligent Power Management (IPM), offering improved performance and fuel efficiency during specific applications.
Operator comfort is enhanced by a 2.4m wheelbase and the Triple Link Suspension (TLS™), while tyre sizes of up to 600/65 R38 help apply the available power to the ground. Increased levels of comfort as well as a higher degree of implement control through automation are provided by John Deere’s intelligent Total Equipment Control (iTEC), and GreenStar™ precision farming options. Three transmission options (PowrQuad Plus, AutoQuad™ Plus and AutoQuad Plus EcoShift), provide 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. These reliable and efficient transmission options help to further reduce fuel consumption on these tractors.
Other features include a pressure and flow compensated hydraulic system providing up to 114 litres/min, with 37 litres/min available for implement operation, plus an optional ex-factory front PTO and front hitch with a lift capacity of 3000kg.
