Ma­chin­ery buy­ers guide

North East & Goulburn Murray Farmer - - FRONT PAGE -

JOHN Deere is launch­ing two new top of the range six­cylin­der trac­tor mod­els rated at 171 kW (230 hp) and 186 kW (250 hp) (97/68 EC), de­signed to meet the needs of con­trac­tors and arable farm­ers.

The 6230R and 6250R will com­plete the line-up of John Deere 6R Se­ries trac­tors.

The 6230R and 6250R hope to set the new stan­dards for trans­port, op­er­a­tor com­fort and ac­cel­er­a­tion on the road.

With a very light ve­hi­cle weight of 9.3 tonnes, the 6250R de­liv­ers more power than any other trac­tor in this weight class.

The high max­i­mum per­mis­si­ble weight of 15 tonnes also al­lows a 5.7 tonne pay­load, which means the trac­tor is able to trans­port heav­ier loads.

Both these new trac­tors are pow­ered by a 6.8 L Power-Tech PSS engine with dual tur­bocharg­ers and ad­vanced DPF and SCR tech­nol­ogy, which re­sponds very quickly to chang­ing loads while con­sum­ing less fuel and meet­ing de­mand­ing Fi­nal Tier 4 (FT4) emis­sion stan­dards.

The up­graded trans­mis­sion de­liv­ers max­i­mum ef­fi­ciency, with 100 per cent me­chan­i­cal power avail­able at 3.5 km/h for heavy draft op­er­a­tions, 11 km/h for light draft work, 22.5 km/h for heavy trans­port and 47.2 km/ h for light trans­port du­ties.

Once run­ning at max­i­mum road speed, RPM au­to­mat­i­cally drops and 50 km/ h is main­tained at 1630 RPM and 40 km/ h at 1300 RPM, which re­sults in lower fuel con­sump­tion on the road.

The trac­tors also fea­ture an all-new joy­stick, avail­able as an optional ex­tra, which in­tro­duces a new di­men­sion in er­gonomics and ver­sa­til­ity to John Deere trac­tors.

Top speed can be reached with just one push, and 11 pro­gram­mable but­tons are avail­able for the hitch, PTO, SCVs, Auto-Trac con­trols etc. Both the joy­stick and ped­als can be op­er­ated at the same time, and there is no need for an ex­ter­nal ISOBUS joy­stick as the driver can also op­er­ate the trac­tor and ISOBUS func­tions si­mul­ta­ne­ously.

Equipped with a pres­sure and flow com­pen­sated hy­draulic sys­tem, the new 6R Se­ries trac­tors de­liver a pow­er­ful max­i­mum flow of 160 Lpm at 1500 RPM.

This also saves fuel, even in the most de­mand­ing hy­draulic ap­pli­ca­tions.

Up to six SCVs with in­di­vid­ual pres­sure-re­lief levers have been grouped to­gether for eas­ier ac­cess, and new lift ca­pac­i­ties are 10.4 tonnes on the rear hitch and five tonnes at the front.

The in­tel­li­gent hy­drop­neu­matic cab sus­pen­sion ( HCS Plus) sys­tem of­fers more driv­ing com­fort and iso­la­tion from noise and vi­bra­tion.

Bet­ter trac­tion and up to 10 per cent more power ap­plied to the ground are pro­vided by the new self- lev­el­ling sus­pen­sion sys­tem on the front axle.

This au­to­mat­i­cally ad­justs sen­si­tiv­ity and sus­pen­sion rate, and syn­chro­nises with hitch sens­ing to com­pen­sate for power hop un­der heavy draft con­di­tions.

Key ser­vice points on the new 6R Se­ries trac­tors are easy to ac­cess for main­te­nance.
