A quality partner

In October 2019 we were lucky enough to attend an event in Valencia where John Deere's new 6M, 7R and 8R/RT/RX Series were presented… it was a good event focused on dealers and customers. The new series surprised us encouraged us to want to test each one, more specifically the new 6M. Last summer we had one of them in our village for a few days to test it (also a John Deere M120 atomizer). In addition, on November 19th an online event was held for all the farmers where the new 6M series was presented. It was a fun event with the showman Jesus Calleja but maybe a bit artificial (we liked more the FendtONE online event because it was more professional and more detailed).

New 6M Series enhances John Deere's 6M Series by replacing the best-selling 6 MC… it has been the best-selling tractor in Spain in recent years so the new 6M series is starting out with a very high standard. This new 6M series broadly incorporates specifications previously available only on the 6R series, i.e. on premium tractors. Therefore, to talk about the new 6M Series is no longer to talk about medium-specification tractors, but now the farmer has almost every features requested for Spanish agriculture.

If we talk about the tractor we tested, the new John Deere 6110 M, we have to admit that we liked it very much. Equipped with the premium cab, Command Quad gearbox, electric distributors, the dashboard on the right-hand side of the cab, etc, it looks like it's actually in a 6R Series, so it is a top-class tractor. Some of the things that surprised us were its small turning radius of 4.3 metres, the tractor brakes which are almost like those of a car and the suspensions (front axle and cabin) which are really comfortable. As, every critical point of view, we noticed that some things could be improved, like the access to the cabin which is narrow and the key to operate the rear lift which is not in a very ergonomic position.

The main features of the new John Deere 6110 M are described in the following paragraphs:   

  • John Deere PowerTech EWL engine with 4,500 cm3 and 4 cylinders.  
  • Maximum power: 135 CV.
  • Maximum torque: 515 Nm at 1,600 r.p.m (torque rise of 40%).
  • Fuel tank capacity of 205 litres.
  • CommandQuad Gearbox of 24x24.
  • Maximum speed of 40 km/h at 1,670 r.p.m.
  • Mechanical cab suspension and front axle hydro-pneumatic suspension.
  • Lifting force rear of 5,700 kg (optional front lift of 4,000 kg).
  • PTO speed: 540, 540E and 1000.
  • Integrated and sound-proofed safety cab with noise level of 70dB.
  • New color cornerpost display.
  • Pump flow rate of 80 l/min (open centre) or 114 l/min (open centre with load sensing). 
  • Maximum permissible total weight of 10,450 kg and effective load of 4.7 tons.

With no further ado, we congratulate John Deere for the great tractor they have achieved.
