The mid frame 6R utility tractor that is ready for anything

  • PowerTech™ 4.5 L PSS FT4 Engine
  • Category 3N three-point hitch
  • MFWD with optional TLS™ Plus
  • ComfortView™ Cab

6R mid frame tractors provide the power to perform with the options you need to build a machine that is fit for purpose.

6R mid frame tractors sit right in the sweet spot between agility and powerful performance – ready for anything. The John Deere 6135R has a wheelbase of 2.765m and height clearance of 3m. Choose from four transmission options; PowrQuad™ (20/20), AutoQuad™ (20/20), DirectDrive (24/24), or AutoPowr™ – IVT. Driven by a 6.8 L PowerTech PVS 6-cylinder engine, over 93% of this power is transmitted to the ground or to the PTO for outstanding efficiency.


6135R Features

Connectivity inside

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).

Intelligent Total Equipment Control integrates AutoTrac™ automatic steering and implement management systems to control tractor speed, front and rear mounted implements, and differential lock engagement, among other parameters. This allows for hands-free turns while reducing soil compaction, resulting in picture-perfect headlands and consistent crop growth.

Outstanding cab comfort and visibility

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.

Ride 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.

The self-levelling TLS Plus suspension system automatically adjusts sensitivity and suspension rate and synchronises with hitch sensing to compensate for power hop under heavy pull conditions.Variable ratio steering improves operator comfort, requiring less hand movement and less steering effort when turning on the headland or in confined spaces.

Performance plus

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.

Superb hydraulics

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. It is available in 20F/20R and 24F/24R versions. With the EcoShift option, a transport speed of 40 km/h (25 mph) is maintained at only 1533 rpm, reducing fuel consumption and emissions.

You can also choose from two versions of the PowrQuad PLUS transmission, 20F/20R and 24F/24R. The AutoPowr is also available, and 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).

Specifically developed for 6R Tractors, DirectDrive is an eight-speed, three-range transmission designed and engineered by John Deere for heavy agricultural work.
