Assured reliability. Minimal maintenance. That’s John Deere qualityAll John Deere agricultural machinery is built to the highest possible standards. Our 6M Series is a prime example of this philosophy, which is why all major components – engines, transmissions and full frame chassis – are designed, engineered, manufactured and tested by John Deere. And they are all designed to work perfectly together.
Your 6M workspace is all about intuitive and straightforward tractor operation. Guided by best-practice ergonomic principles, the design of the 6M Tractor's right-hand console and the compact CommandARM™ console is perfectly aligned with the updated cornerpost display in the A-post. It’s a smoothly productive operator experience that is enclosed by more glass all around for a wide-open, unencumbered view.
Factory-installed lighting packages deliver a wide, bright, and concentrated field of light all around your 6M Tractor. For even more demanding lighting requirements, you’ll want to opt for the light-emitting diode (LED) lighting packages which consume less power, provide an even brighter daylight-quality light, and last longer.
Get all the power you need with less fuel and lower emissions from the 4.5L (274.6-cu in.), 4-cylinder engine or 6.8L (415-cu in.), 6-cylinder engine. Both are ready for Stage V emission standards. The 6-cylinder engine features extended drain intervals of up to 750 hours with John Deere Plus-50™ II oil.
The higher power output of the 6-cylinder engine comes from refined high-pressure common rail (HPCR) technology with injection pressure of up to 2,500 bar (36,259.4 psi). The PVS engine in the 6155M, 6175M, and 6195M Tractors has a variable geometry turbocharger (VGT) that boosts performance and efficiency across the torque curve.
Our proven transmission portfolio combines superior ease of operation and convenience with outstanding efficiency to complement the power and torque of your 6M Tractor. For the 6090M through 6155M models, a creeper option with speeds as low as 72 m/hr (0.05 mph) at 1,000 rpm is available.
Three versions are available: 16F/16R, 20F/20R, and 24F/24R. All provide rapid shifting including speed matching for smooth shifting between ranges. They are operated by a single range lever with declutch function and push-button gear selection. SoftShift technology keeps the changes smooth, even under load.
The AutoQuad Plus transmisison provides all the benefits of PowrQuad Plus with the added convenience of automatic gear shifting. 20F/20R and 24F/24R versions are available. The EcoShift option combines high transport speed (40 km/h [24.9 mph]) and low engine rpm between 1,580 and 1,680 to reduce fuel consumption and emissions by up to 23 percent.
Looking for that extra level of operational ease? Say hello to a lot less clutching and experience less tiresome, more productive days in the cab. You’ll love the enhanced automatic capabilities of CommandQuad Plus.
The John Deere full-frame design is a solid platform that absorbs and resists loads and shocks from the wheels, heavy implements, and front loaders. To further minimize the fatigue and stress caused by unpleasant vibrations, 6M Tractors can be specified with optional mechanical cab suspension. The standard front axle delivers superior on-road handling, and Triple Link Suspension (TLS™) is optionally available.
Easily controlled via the cornerpost display, the pressure-and-flow compensated system (PFC) of the 6M Tractors will produce a powerful flow of up 114 L/min (30.1-gpm). The system automatically enters a no-flow standby mode that improves fuel efficiency, implement performance, and steering response. For operations with less demanding tasks, a cost effective and more basic pressure compensated system (PC) with 80-L/min (21.1-gpm) flow is also available.
The selective control valve (SCV) stack groups together up to four SCVs, power beyond couplers, and the pressure-free return circuit valve, with hydraulic flow easily adjusted from the cornerpost display.
Depending on the tread adjustment requirements of the jobs you mostly work on with your tractor, you can choose between flange axles or rack-and-pinion axles on your 6M Tractor.
