New tractor M for mighty
The John Deere cab model 6M tractors are in line for a significant makeover for 2020, including what the machinery giant says will include improvements in comfort, visibility, performance and technology.
Revealed in mid-September, the new 6M tractors follow the 6M, 6MC and 6RC series and include three new four-cylinder models with 90-120 horsepower.
The updated 6M tractor cab provides a comfortable working environment for those long days with a car-like noise level (70 dbA) in all conditions.
All-around visibility of 310 degrees from within the cab allows accurate tractor placement, implement hook-up, and optimum tractor performance.
Driver comfort is also enhanced by mechanical cab suspension and the proven Triple Link Suspension front axle, while 360-degree LED lighting is available for night work.
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.
The new Cornerpost display and its intuitive design eliminates the instrument cluster once surrounding the steering column, while increasing forward-facing visibility and functionality.
Up to four mechanical or electronic selective control valves (SCVs) are available. The latter is a new option available for the first time on these tractors.
Switches on the electro-hydraulic joystick are fully programmable, and direction of travel can be changed on both this and the mechanical joystick via the PowrReverser push-button.
New technology is also available on the 6M models for customers seeking precision guidance, telematics and other features often found in larger or higher specification tractors.
This includes factory-installed AutoTrac guidance, available for the first time on the small-frame models, and the addition of JDLin telematics to assist customers with fleet management, service updates and maintenance alerts.
