John Deere 6R trac­tors

Farms & Farm Machinery - - News -

Two new top-of-the-range trac­tors have been launched by John Deere, com­plet­ing the com­pany’s 6R Se­ries of trac­tors.

The new 6230R, rated at 230hp, and the 6250R (pic­tured), rated at 250hp, are de­signed for use by con­trac­tors and large arable farm­ers.

Thanks to an en­gine boost of 50hp with in­tel­li­gent power man­age­ment (IPM), the flag­ship 6250R trac­tor pro­vides up to 300hp when re­quired.

With a very light ve­hi­cle weight of 9.3 tonnes, the 6250R de­liv­ers more power than any other trac­tor in this weight class, along with an un­ri­valled power den­sity of 31kg/hp.

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-litre Pow­erTech PSS en­gine with dual tur­bocharg­ers and ad­vanced diesel par­tic­u­late fil­ter (DPF) and se­lec­tive cat­alytic re­duc­tion (SCR) tech­nol­ogy, which re­sponds quickly to chang­ing loads while con­sum­ing less fuel and meet­ing de­mand­ing Stage IV emis­sion stan­dards.

The up­graded Au­toPowr trans­mis­sion de­liv­ers max­i­mum ef­fi­ciency, with 100 per cent me­chan­i­cal power avail­able at be­tween 3.5km/h and 47.2km/h.

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