John Deere introduces new 6R Series tractors

Some of the tractors are equipped with loader technology

By Farms.com

Farmers visiting the John Deere exhibit at the National Farm Machinery Show last month had the opportunity to get a first hand look at a new tractor series.

John Deere’s 6R Series includes 10 models ranging from 110 horsepower all the way to 215 horsepower.

Nate Williams, a territory customer support manager with John Deere, showed off the 6R 165 and talked about some of its features.

Equipped with the 640 R loader, the tractor has loader technology.

“There’s a camera down below so you can see those loads right at the bucket,” Williams said.

The loader technology also comes with three additional features.

The ability to weigh a load, the ability to set positions and leveling for operation on uneven ground.

“If you’re rolling through terrain up and down, it’s going to maintain that levelness of that bucket, so you don’t end up losing the load you have,” Williams told Farms.com at the show.

Inside the cab, operators can have a programmable joystick.

And the implement cluster has also moved.

Instead of it being in front of the steering column, it’s on the corner post display for improved visibility.

Be sure to visit the website often as Farms.com will continue to upload content from the National Farm Machinery Show.
