John Deere Launches 6R Series Tractors with More Versatility and Power

February 7, 2012 05:43 AM


OLATHE, Kan. – John Deere is expanding its lineup of 6R Series tractors with three new, highly jd image for webversatile models perfect for the farm or ranch. The three new models are the 6105R with 105 engine horsepower; the 6115R with 115 engine horsepower; and the 6125R with 125 engine horsepower—all in a premium package that replaces the 6030 Premium tractors.
According to Scott Hessel, product marketing manager for John Deere, the new 6R Series tractors are designed to be do-it-all utility tractors with versatility, power and comfort never before seen in tractors in this horsepower range.
"We’ve made the cab 20% larger and added the GreenStar 3 Command Center with touchscreen display," Hessel says. "We’ve also included Triple Link and Adaptive Hydraulic Cab suspension to make the new 6R models the most comfortable and easy-to-operate tractors in their class. In addition, we’ve increased the hydraulic lift capacity by 20% and added new 50K [31-mph] transmission options that give these spacious utility tractors the functions of much larger machines."
All three 6R models come standard with John Deere 4.5L PowerTech PVX Interim Tier 4 diesel engines with Intelligent Power Management that provides an additional 20 hp during transport and nonstationary PTO applications. Transmission options include a 24-speed AutoQuad Plus ECO transmission (standard), 16-speed PowerQuad Plus (optional), and IVT transmissions (optional). IVT and AutoQuad Plus configurations are available with up to 50K (31-mph) transport speed.
The compact design of the new tractors, combined with the power, comfort and control features, make these 6R models a perfect match with the new H-Series loaders and hundreds of other John Deere and Frontier attachments. The tractors also come with Cat. 2/3N lift capacity, Cat. 2 drawbar, three lighting package options and two-wheel-drive and mechanical front-wheel-drive configurations.
"The new 6R Series tractors have row-crop tractor features with utility tractor functionality and versatility, which makes them ideal for almost any farm, livestock operation, or property maintenance job," Hessel adds. "These 105- to 125-hp models expand our lineup of the 6R Series that we introduced in 2011 and give customers a wider range of tractors to choose from based on their needs."
The new John Deere 6105R, 6115R and 6125R tractors will be available at local John Deere dealers starting later this summer. For more information on these and the entire lineup of John Deere tractors, see your local John Deere dealer or visit
