Accessing John Deere’s automatic guidance solutions starts with the StarFire 6000 Receiver. Capabilities include better signal stability for maximum uptime and SF3 accuracy. This means the receiver always keeps you on track whatever the conditions are. With SF3, you get repeatable results – no guidance line or boundary drift – throughout one season. The StarFire 6000 Receiver works seamlessly with all John Deere guidance systems and all accuracy levels (SF1, SF3, Mobile RTK and Radio RTK).
JDLink shows where machines are, what they are doing, and how they are performing. You or your dealer can remotely assist operators with machine setup and operation leveraging Remote Display Access (RDA). JDLink Connect additionally includes Wireless Data Transfer (WDT) for seamless data exchange between the machine and the office.
Ergonomic excellence, all-around visibility, and comfort are the hallmarks of the spacious ComfortView cab. All controls and machine/operator interfaces have been optimised for logical, intuitive use. All 6R Series Tractors are equipped with CommandARM™ controls and a Generation 4 CommandCenter™ Display with Bluetooth® wireless connectivity. The GreenStar™ 3 2630 Display can be mounted on either of the right-hand-side cornerposts. The sloping engine hood and excellent all-around visibility give operators an unrivalled overview of their surroundings. The optional panoramic roof expands the operator’s field of vision, providing up to 30 percent more practical visibility when working with a front loader.
Comfort and agility
The Triple-Link Suspension (TLS™) Plus system guarantees optimum traction and field performance, applying up to 10 percent more power to the ground. It also ensures higher operator comfort, reduces operator fatigue, and increases productivity, while the variable ratio steering improves in-field manoeuvrability. 6230R and 6250R Tractors further benefit from extra comfort and stability that comes with the longer 2900-mm (114.2-in.) wheelbase.
Variable ratio steering
Variable ratio steering improves operator comfort, requiring less hand movement and less steering effort when turning on the headland or in confined spaces. The resulting faster turning of the steering wheel increases hydraulic flow, leading to a quicker response from the tyres. The system can be activated or deactivated in the CommandCenter™ display and is available for all 6R Tractors except the 6155RH.
The high power output of the John Deere 4-cylinder, 4.5L (274.6 cu in.) engine and the 6-cylinder, 6.8L (415 cu in.) engine is made possible by our refined, four-valve, high-pressure common rail (HPCR) technology with an injection pressure of up to 2500 bar (36,259.4 psi). The PVS engine in the 6175R, 6195R, and 6215R models is equipped with a variable geometry turbocharger (VGT) that boosts performance and efficiency consistently across the torque curve. The PSS engines (6230R and 6250R) use a two-stage turbocharging system in which the VGT multiplies the pressure created by a fixed vane turbocharger.
The closed-centre, pressure-and-flow-compensated hydraulic system in the 6R Series has been engineered for maximum durability and reliability by optimising the number of hydraulic components and connections, which also makes it extremely efficient. The system in the 6230R and 6250R models delivers a powerful 160 L/min (42.3 gpm) at 1,500 rpm with enhanced operating characteristics. Selective control valve (SCV) stack components have been clustered in a supremely user-friendly way, with up to six rear SCVs and power beyond couplers. Wide hitch rails allow generous clearance for power take-off (PTO) tasks, and the layout gives the operator an unobstructed view of the rear hitch and connecting points when manoeuvring for implement coupling.
Widest transmission portfolio
The AutoQuad transmission has all the benefits of the PowrQuad™ PLUS transmission with the added convenience of automatic gear shifting.
PowrQuad PLUS transmission
There are two versions of the PowrQuad PLUS transmission, 20F/20R and 24F/24R. Both versions provide rapid shifting including speed matching when shifting between ranges. SoftShift technology keeps the changes smooth, even under load.
Enhanced AutoPowr™ transmission – Infinite speed adjustment in all situations
AutoPowr is a hydro-mechanical transmission delivering stepless and continuous power at speeds between 40 km/h and 50 km/h (25 mph and 31 mph). The AutoPowr transmission maintains the selected speed by automatically responding to changing load conditions.
DirectDrive transmission – The benchmark for seamless efficiency
Specifically developed for 6R Tractors, DirectDrive is an eight-speed, three-range transmission designed and engineered by John Deere for heavy agricultural work. Super-efficient dual-clutch technology always has the next gear lined up, so there is no lost momentum during changes, fuel consumption is reduced, and ease of operation is assured.
