Automatic guidance – Make the most of your day
StarFire™ 6000 ReceiverStarFire™ 6000 Receiver

Accessing John Deere’s automatic guidance solutions starts with the StarFire 6000 Receiver. Capabilities include better signal stability for maximum uptime and SF3 accuracy. This means the receiver always keeps you on track whatever the conditions are. With SF3, you get repeatable results – no guidance line or boundary drift – throughout one season. The StarFire 6000 Receiver works seamlessly with all John Deere guidance systems and all accuracy levels (SF1, SF3, Mobile RTK and Radio RTK).

iTEC™ Pro

Intelligent Total Equipment Control integrates AutoTrac™ automatic steering and implement management systems to control tractor speed, front and rear mounted implements, and differential lock engagement, among other parameters. This allows for hands-free turns while reducing soil compaction, resulting in picture-perfect headlands and consistent crop growth.

Manure sensing

The near infrared sensor, as utilized by the John Deere forage harvester (HarvestLab™ sensor) and fitted to the slurry tanker, measures nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, ammonium (NH4), volume, and dry matter on the go with more than 4000 measurements a second. With a 6R Series Tractor featuring the AutoPowr™ transmission, the sensor can directly command speed adjustment to the tractor on adjust application rates based on your desired nutrient target level and even leverage a prescription map. This enables you to maximise yields and meet legal requirements while cutting costs on mineral fertilizer.

Comfort and agility

Smooth operator
6R Tractor6R Tractor

The Triple-Link Suspension (TLS™) Plus system guarantees optimum traction and field performance, applying up to 10 percent more power to the ground. It also ensures higher operator comfort, reduces operator fatigue, and increases productivity, while the variable ratio steering improves in-field manoeuvrability. 6230R and 6250R Tractors further benefit from extra comfort and stability that comes with the longer 2900-mm (114.2-in.) wheelbase.

The self-levelling TLS Plus suspension system automatically adjusts sensitivity and suspension rate and synchronises with hitch sensing to compensate for power hop under heavy pull conditions.

Variable ratio steering
Variable ratio steering offVariable ratio steering off
Variable ratio steering onVariable ratio steering on

Variable ratio steering improves operator comfort, requiring less hand movement and less steering effort when turning on the headland or in confined spaces. The resulting faster turning of the steering wheel increases hydraulic flow, leading to a quicker response from the tyres. The system can be activated or deactivated in the CommandCenter™ display and is available for all 6R Tractors except the 6155RH.



The high power output of the John Deere 4-cylinder, 4.5L (274.6 cu in.) engine and the 6-cylinder, 6.8L (415 cu in.) engine is made possible by our refined, four-valve, high-pressure common rail (HPCR) technology with an injection pressure of up to 2500 bar (36,259.4 psi). The PVS engine in the 6175R, 6195R, and 6215R models is equipped with a variable geometry turbocharger (VGT) that boosts performance and efficiency consistently across the torque curve. The PSS engines (6230R and 6250R) use a two-stage turbocharging system in which the VGT multiplies the pressure created by a fixed vane turbocharger.

Superb hydraulics

Hydraulic systemHydraulic system

The closed-centre, pressure-and-flow-compensated hydraulic system in the 6R Series has been engineered for maximum durability and reliability by optimizing the number of hydraulic components and connections, which also makes it extremely efficient. The system in the 6230R and 6250R models delivers a powerful 160 L/min (42.3 gpm) at 1,500 rpm with enhanced operating characteristics. Selective control valve (SCV) stack components have been clustered in a supremely user-friendly way, with up to six rear SCVs and power beyond couplers. Wide hitch rails allow generous clearance for power take-off (PTO) tasks, and the layout gives the operator an unobstructed view of the rear hitch and connecting points when manoeuvring for implement coupling.

Widest transmission portfolio

AutoQuad™ transmission
6R Tractor6R Tractor

The AutoQuad transmission has all the benefits of the PowrQuad™ PLUS transmission with the added convenience of automatic gear shifting. It is available in 20F/20R and 24F/24R versions. With the EcoShift option, a transport speed of 40 km/h (25 mph) is maintained at only 1533 rpm, reducing fuel consumption and emissions.

PowrQuad PLUS transmission

There are two versions of the PowrQuad PLUS transmission, 20F/20R and 24F/24R. Availability depends on the tractor model. Both versions provide rapid shifting including speed matching when shifting between ranges. They are operated by a single-range lever with a de-clutch function and push-button gear selection. SoftShift technology keeps the changes smooth, even under load.

Enhanced AutoPowr™ transmission – Infinite speed adjustment in all situations
AutoPowr transmissionAutoPowr transmission

AutoPowr is a hydro-mechanical transmission delivering stepless and continuous power at speeds between 40 km/h and 50 km/h (25 mph and 31 mph). The AutoPowr transmission maintains the selected speed by automatically responding to changing load conditions. Once running at maximum road speed, engine rpm automatically drops to the minimum level required to maintain that speed, thus reducing noise and saving fuel. A speed of 50 km/h (31 mph) is maintained at 1630 rpm, and a speed of 40 km/h (25 mph) is maintained at 1300 rpm with the CommandPRO™ joystick.

DirectDrive transmission – The benchmark for seamless efficiency
DirectDrive transmissionDirectDrive transmission

Specifically developed for 6R Tractors, DirectDrive is an eight-speed, three-range transmission designed and engineered by John Deere for heavy agricultural work. Super-efficient dual-clutch technology always has the next gear lined up, so there is no lost momentum during changes, fuel consumption is reduced, and ease of operation is assured. During transport, DirectDrive reduces the engine speed to 1550 rpm at 40 km/h (25 mph) and 1600 rpm at 50 km/h (31 mph), thus reducing fuel consumption. In addition, the AutoClutch function enables you to stop the tractor without pressing the clutch.
